Have you noticed all of the gift guides? I know I have. This year, I wanted to share a good mix of guides, because I want to make your life easier, while you are shopping for your friends and family. I know how hard it is to Christmas shop. Online shopping has definitely made it a lot easier, but I still struggle to pick out gifts for people. Basically, these guides are helping me too! So, onto today’s post…It’s a gift guide for book lovers. If you know someone who really enjoys reading (it doesn’t matter what genre), then look no further! This is the guide for you!
I can’t believe it is already November! Here, in Tennessee, the leaves are various shades of orange, red, and yellow. It’s my favorite time of year. I enjoy the crisp, yet comfortable temperatures, and the gorgeous colors of Fall. But, that also means that Christmas is just around the corner. Believe it or not, it’s already time to start thinking about gift giving, which is why I have started to create a few guides, to help you out. Last week I share one for your coffee-loving friends. Today, I am going to share a few great gift options, for the Travel Addict, in your life!
The holiday season is just around the corner and that means it’s time to start thinking about the people on your shopping list. Chances are, you have a few friends that are coffee lovers. As someone that drinks 2-3 cups a day, I have quite the collection of coffee-related items, and a little bit of insight on what to buy your favorite coffee drinker. I have picked out a few of my favorite things, as well as some items that any coffee lover would like to have.
May has arrived and we are finally seeing some higher temps here in middle Tennessee! Grass is growing and flowers are starting to bloom and my allergies are acting up a long with it. May brings more than just allergies, though. It brings the day we celebrate the women that brought us into this world. Mother’s Day! As I am writing this, you only have a little over a week left to grab a Mother’s Day gift for the special ladies in your life, so I am giving you a list of options that will ship quickly.
And why don’t you go ahead and treat yourself, while your at it? 😉
Hey there! I hope the first month of 2018 has been treating you well. I know it seems crazy, how quickly it’s going by. I feel like I was just planning for Christmas and now here we are, talking about Valentine’s Day! Has it snuck up on you, also? If so, today I am giving you a quick list of Amazon Prime eligible gifts. Most of these could be for either a guy or gal, so if you still need to pick up something for your special someone, look no further!
I love bath bombs! I haven’t met many girls that don’t. They smell great, moisturize your skin, and offer some much needed relaxation time.
These little Knock Knock books are great for Valentine’s Day! My husband and I have given these to each other, in the past, and we both loved them. They are fun to fill out and the sentiment means a lot to your significant other.
If you are looking to go a little more low key, a funny card should do the trick! You can pair it with another gift on this list, or maybe use it to give your special someone tickets to an event or concert they have been wanting to go to.
I was lucky enough to get this item, complimentary, from Oh, Susannah! My husband actually bought me an adorable pillowcase set from them on our last anniversary and I loved them so much, that I jumped at the chance to include an item from them in this gift guide! If you want to see my pillowcases and pillow cover in action, check out my Instagram!
I know not everyone is a Star Wars fan, but my husband definitely is, and I know a lot of men and women that are. Honestly, I was never really into it until we started dating. He had me rewatching all of the original films. I’m a “Rom Com” girl for the most part, so not surprisingly, my favorite storyline from the originals is the love story between Han and Leia. This mug set would be a cute gift for gals or guys, and it features one of my favorite quotes from the movies!
This is another gift that Justin has gotten me. We have not always been consistent about filling it out, but it is a cool way to start a conversation and even if you have been together for 20+ years, you may still be surprised by some of your significant other’s answers.
So, by now you are probably realizing that I love “his and her” sets. This one is no exception. I love that one is a beer glass and one is a wine glass! This is another gift that would work well for either gender. One for yourself, and one for your significant other!
So there are a few last minute gifts you can snag off of Amazon prime today! Let me know if you end up picking any of these for your Valentine and if you are looking for more ideas, check out one of my previous gift guides, below!
Until next time!
It’s no secret that I love my fur babies. They are my cuddle puppies and I am their Dog Mom. I have included items on this list that I either own myself, or I would love to receive. Take a look and pick out the perfect gift for the girl in your life that rocks the Dog Mom title.
We actually have this little treat camera and it is so cool. It connects easily to the Petzi app and you are able to see and talk to your puppies from wherever you may be. You can also toss them a treat. Our dogs love it!
My little, furry girls are always sporting a cute collar. These come in a lot of different stylish patterns and colors.
I love all of the Willow Tree figurines. I have given these as gifts and the recipients always love them. This one is so sweet and shows the love between a girl and her furbaby.
I can’t even count the number of signs I have like this, scattered around my home. Help your friend show off their dog love with this adorable little sign!
I have actually received a cute dog treat canister as a Christmas gift before, and I loved it! It allows me to have the dogs treats easily accessible, but without having wrappers and boxes sitting out on my kitchen counter.
This mug is just plain cute! Honestly, I have a coffee mug addiction. (For real, y’all. You should see my kitchen cabinets.) If you know a girl that loves coffee (or tea) and loves her dog, then she will love this mug!
7. Pet Dog Bandana Scarf Pack – Triangle Bibs Reversible Christmas Plaid Printing Kerchief 2 Pcs/set Accessories for Small to Large Dogs
I am not ashamed to say that my littlest dog has a large wardrobe. I realize that not everyone takes the time to dress up their pooch, but I would say most dog mom’s would like a stylish bandana to tie around their necks.
Every dog needs a comfy place to rest and every dog mom is happy to have a removable, washable cover on that bed.
A cute set of dog toys is a great gift. We can never have too many toys! The dogs constantly lose or destroy them so I feel like we are always buying more.
That’s it! Hopefully, this gave you some shopping ideas for the dog mom in your life!
Until next time!
Are you stuffed?! I know I am! I hope that you all had an amazing Thanksgiving and that you were able to spend some time with family.
Now, it’s time to go shopping! Today is the biggest shopping day of the year, Black Friday. I thought I would help you get started by posting another gift guide. This time it’s all for the crafter in your life. This could be your mom, sister, or bestie. We all know a lady that loves to create and do-it-herself. Maybe it’s even you!
For your friend or family member that loves to crochet. Even if she already has crochet hooks, she would love to get more (they always go missing). Plus, this kit comes with a cute carrying case and other crochet tools.
A laminator is the perfect gift for the scrapbooking, paper crafting, organizing, lady in your life.
Any one that has a crafting hobby, needs a way to store their supplies. Raskog carts can be used to hold everything from yarn to paint supplies. They have wheels so that they can be moved to wherever you need them.
If you know someone that likes to sew, then this book would be great for them. It includes quick and easy patterns that can be used to make a wide variety of items.
5. Creative Lettering and Beyond: Inspiring tips, techniques, and ideas for hand lettering your way to beautiful works of art
Do you know someone that enjoys drawing or lettering? If they are a beginner, then this book would be great for them. It has a ton of great techniques for different types of lettering.
If you pick up the Creative Lettering book for your friend, then this set of Tombow art markers would be a great item to pair with it! Even if your friend is an expert at lettering and calligraphy, they will appreciate these high quality markers.
A nice paper trimmer/cutter would be great for someone you know that loves to scrapbook, make their own cards, or any other paper crafts. I have one similar to this one by Fiskars and I love it!
Until next time…
I’m back with another gift guide for you! I had a little help with this one, from none other than my very own geek guy: my husband. He works in cybersecurity, he builds his own (and mine too!) computers, and he love video games. If you have a guy in your life that is a self-proclaimed geek, then this is the list for him! Whether it’s your brother, father, uncle, or boyfriend, you are sure to find something here that he will enjoy. So without further ado, here it is:
If you didn’t know already, Steam is a platform for buying computer games. If you know of a fella that enjoys gaming, then this would be perfect for him.
A pair of high quality, noise cancelling headphones is a must have! These are great for traveling and for around the house. He will be able to listen to his favorite podcast without any distractions.
This bag is perfect for holding onto all of the other items on this list. It’s a basic style and made of sturdy material, which most geek guys would appreciate.
Standard pocket knives are a thing of the past! This handy tool has so many uses. It includes: spring-action needlenose and regular pliers, spring-action wire cutters and scissors, wire stripper, knife, package opener, ruler, can and bottle openers, wood/metal file, Phillips screwdriver, and medium and small screwdrivers.
My husband put this on our wedding registry and was thrilled to end up getting it. I know he has used it several times to work on both of our computers and to replace screens on cell phones. If you know a guy that enjoys fixing his own electronics, then this would be perfect for him.
Okay, so this might not be the most glamorous gift, but every guy needs a good flashlight. Not just geeks! This is another item that my husband already owns and I have never heard someone talk about a flashlight so much, so this one must be pretty cool.
There you have it! Any of these gifts would put a smile on your favorite guys face.
Thanks to my favorite guy for his help putting this guide together!
Until next time!
The holiday season is upon us! Halloween has now passed and Thanksgiving will be here before you know it. I know it’s hard to believe, but it’s time to start thinking about your Christmas shopping list.
Today, I present you with my first gift guide of the season! Because I am a self-proclaimed, planner girl, I thought that would be the best place to start. Below, you will find a list of some of my favorite planning accessories. These are guaranteed to make every planner girl smile!
This pencil pouch is stylish and just the right size to hold a few essential planner accessories.
Washi tape is used for decorating the pages of your planner, but it also has functional uses as well. It’s great for covering an appointment that was rescheduled or folding it over the edge of a page to create a flag.
No planner is complete without the perfect pen! I love Paper Mate InkJoy Gel pens. The ink glides on so smoothly that it can make even the worst handwriting look great.
These super cute sticky notes are great for jotting down quick to do lists and reminders.
Most planner girls have a desk area that they use every week for planning time. A desk organizer is a perfect way to have all of your supplies on hand, but also not cluttering your writing space.
The animal shaped paper clips are adorable and would be a great gift for the planner girl in your life. Paper clips are like bobby pins. You can never have too many!
