Holiday Gift Guide For Him

Holiday Gift Guide For Him

Hello Everyone!

Sometimes, the gentlemen in our lives can be a bit tricky to buy for, I know from experience. Today, I’ve put together a holiday gift guide for him in which all things have been approved by Ben. He either wants, or already has, everything on this list. Weather you’re looking for a sporty gift, a fashionable gift, an outdoorsy gift, or a techie gift, this gift guide covers it all.

We have been getting together with another couple over the past year or two for game nights, & one of our newest favorite games is Ticket to Ride.

I used this Shiseido face wash a while back, & Ben tried it once & quickly fell in love. It’s all he uses to wash his face now!

Every man needs a pair of bluetooth earbuds. They are perfect for using while working out, doing yard work, commuting, etc. Speaking of working out, if your man likes to box at the gym, check out these great gloves.

Are you really a man if you don’t own a pocket knife or multi-tool?

These very affordable men’s dress shoes know how to make a man look goooooood.

Beauty Gift Bags For Your Girlfriends

Beauty Gift Bags For Your Girlfriends

Hello Everyone!

This is something I have always wanted to do, & I’m so excited to finally be putting these together this year! During the Sephora VIB Rouge sale last month, I ordered a few value sets filled with fun makeup & skincare bits. Now, I get to break them up & make little Christmas beauty gift bags for my girlfriends. The best part, is that they are actually amazing products, & I saved so much money by buying the Sephora value sets. Let me show you how I divide them up & package them to give away.

The four value sets I chose sold out very quickly, but don’t you worry! I’ve found quite the roundup of holiday sets at every price point. Some of my favorites available now have to be this Tarte Holiday Lip Sculptor Set, these Origins Superstar Minis, & this Buxom Mini Lip Collection (You know how much I die for these Buxom glosses!).

Once you’ve chosen your sets, now comes the fun part: choosing who gets what. This can definitely take some time, but I just love thinking about what would look good one each of my girlfriends, or which shade/scent they would love most. Yes, you are buying things in bulk, but you are also personalizing each gift in a special way.

Split them up however you want. I tried to spread mine out equally so that each of my girlfriends get 2-3 fun beauty products curated just for them.

After I’ve divided everything up, I now place them in a fun & festive holiday bag along with a personalized Christmas note. These beauty bits are great because they can act alone as a great gift, or can be a supplement for a gift you already have for them. To finish these off this year, I am going to make some homemade Christmas cookies & add a few to each bag. Other fun add-ons include store bought chocolates or candies, candles, hot cocoa mixes, a Christmas ornament, puppy chow, or cocktail minis. I had so much fun making these this season, I know I will definitely be doing this again in the coming years.

Doesn’t this sound like a fun way to give gifts this year? xx

How To Perfectly Wrap Your Gifts This Year

How To Perfectly Wrap Your Gifts This Year

Hello Everyone!

Wrapping presents is one of my very favorite things to do year-round, so when Christmas time comes around, I get giddy with excitement. Today I want to share with you how to perfectly wrap your gifts this year. I love letting my creativity run wild as I plan out color schemes & mood boards for my Christmas wrapping vibes. This year, I went with simple, minimal paper with feminine touches of gold, bows, & sparkles. Adding every small detail gives each gift a personal touch as well as decorates your home while living under your tree until Christmas.

Now grab a cup of hot cocoa (recipes here) & let’s get wrapping!

The past three years, I have used the gorgeous Rifle Paper Co. wrapping paper for my holiday wrapping, & I absolutely loved it. I love Anna’s designs, but I decided to make a change this year because I remembered how lovely Target’s Sugar Paper products were last year. Recently, I went to Target, making a beeline for the Sugar Paper display, & quickly filled my cart with all of the beautiful holiday wrapping things. I decided to stick with red, pink, white, gold, & navy, letting the tree be the only green. The metallic touches to these Sugar Paper products are what really speaks to me. They are minimal, elegant, classy, & still very festive.

Once each gift is perfectly wrapped in paper, now the fun really begins. Adding different colors, textures, & sizes of ribbon helps set each present apart. I love this white ribbon with a gold metallic edge as well as this skinny pink velvet ribbon. For a bigger statement, I pull out the big guns with these large glitter bows that are sure to be show stopping.

For packages that need a little extra something, I will tie on a little gold bell or one of these tiny Christmas ornaments for extra embellishment.

My biggest wrapping tip for you this year is to try to make each gift unique & special. Getting creative, & putting that little extra thought into the presentation of each gift is something your loved ones will cherish & appreciate. Plus, just think of how gorgeous they will look under your tree this whole holiday season!
