I’d like to think I’m pretty creative when it comes to certain things…one being presents 🎁 I’m that type of person who can either give you a gift card and call it a day OR give you something you didn’t even know you wanted. If you’re having a tough time coming up with something awesome to give someone this holiday season, let me brag about some of the things I’ve done and maybe you can get inspired! I’ll have the word “LINK” next to a few things so it takes you directly to the right place!
♦ Couples Massage
♦ Matching robes with their initials
♦ Movie Tickets
♦ Renting a place out in Tahoe for a couple days (obviously depending on where you live, you do it there.)
♦ Schedule a family holiday photo shoot. This obviously is one of my favorites! A memory and gift that will be cherished forever.
♦ Think about house appliances…they might say they don’t need it, but wouldn’t a new updated fridge be nice? Or new washer and dryer? How about a bigger T.V?
♦ For dad: (or bf/fiancé/husband) – Premium car care supplies. There’s this website called adamspolishes.com which has the best cleaning products for your car. And if the man in your life loves his car more than you, than this will be like the ultimate treat.
♦ Men like nice grooming products just as much as us women! Anything from here they will love: https://www.theartofshaving.com
♦ Update dads wordrobe
♦ For mom: Moms are so easy. Clothes, shoes, makeup, purses, wallet….if you don’t know what your mom likes than you need to seriously spend some one on one time with her. There’s an idea! 💡
♦ Treat her to like one of those painting classes with wine!
♦ Moms love custom made anything!!! Photo Mug with YOUR mug on it 😉 Stamps, Picture Frame, Jewelry, Blanket, Cutting Board.. This website is great for customizing whatever it is you want https://www.zazzle.com
Friends, Sisters, Mom, Grandma:
♦ If she loves to cook with fresh herbs a little indoor garden would be very convienient to have for something like growing mint, basil, etc. LINK:
♦ LUSH products! Their bath balms are UG-MAZING! All made with natural products so don’t worry about the ones who have sensitive skin.
♦ Remember that customized bracelet I posted with Luna’s birth information? Definitely a great gift any momma! OR tell baby daddy this is on your wish list! Here is their link again:
♦ Silk Pillowcase. It has great benefits for your skin and hair! LINK:
♦ Buy tickets for some future events going on in your area…A great way to bond!!
♦ Candles. I have too many candles said no girl ever. Be creative by attach a little candy cane to it.
♦ A bottle of Champagne, and Sugarfina has Champagne Gummy Bears! This will add an extra touch to the gift. This site is so cute! You can even create your own candy box! LINK: https://www.sugarfina.com/champagne-bears
♦ What emoji does your friend use ALL the time?! Give her a mug that has it! https://www.bloomingdales.com/shop/product/sparrow-wren-emoji-mug
♦ So for a while I’ve been throwing my credit card and ID in my purse just to avoid carrying a big wallet. It got super annoying because I’d always loose my cards between switching purses. I went to Nordstrom and saw a little card case. Brilliant! Now its never problem! Heres a link for tons of cute ones! https://shop.nordstrom.com/c/card-cases
♦ Starbucks gift card. DUH, who doesn’t need coffee or tea? Do something funny like get a HUGE box, put the gift card at the very bottom, stuff a whole bunch of wrapping paper in there and see them struggle getting to it =) You can do this with any gift!!!
For your significant other:
♦ Scrapbook! This is a great way to print those amazing photos you’ve collected throughout time and organize it in a scrapbook! Think of a theme, it may be “20 reasons why I love you.” Or “Our adventures together.” What I did for Mike, was telling the story of how we met…all our adventures and what we did up until our engagement and having Luna.
♦ My all time favorite cologne for men is “Million” by Paco Rabanne
♦ Sports Gear
♦ Custom make a sexy calendar for the year (nobody uses calendars anymore, but is he really going to hate seeing a photo of you in lingerie eating cake on his birthday month?
♦ A man needs attention!!! Set up a romantic night. Candles around the bathtub, chocolates and whip cream…rose pedals, wear a Santa hat, toys if you’re into that 😉 He will be waiting for Christmas all year long!
♦ We live in Jupiter and the lighthouse is one of the main attractions. They have tours set up where you can experience the history of the place…Theres a pathway that leads up to the lighthouse made of bricks and you can actually buy one to become a part of the “Lighthouse Legacy.” So this might be something you can look into wherever it is you live. Find a location where you can engrave a love note or simply your initials…
♦ Lotto Tickets, Scratch Offs
♦ Socks, Underwear, Gloves, Beanie, Glasses
♦ Make Up
♦ Poop Pourri (if you don’t know what it is, google it.)
♦ If she travels often then she’ll understand the struggle of not knowing where to place dirty underwear. Okay that wasn’t too ladylike let me say it like this…her “worn under garments.” This will help separate the clean and the dirty LINK:
♦ A nice cigar if your man is into that
♦ Does someone you know loose their keys all the time!? Get them a magnetic wall key holder!
♦ Do something funny like is your friend obsessed with hot sauce? Throw in a little to go size hot sauce!
♦ Those sheet face masks, Sephora also has hand masks, and foot masks! Everyone appreciates a little hydration!
♦ Skin care products!
Many of you ask what my favorite skin care products are and here they are:
Microdermabrasion Scrub – DERMAE (Trust me when I say its THE BEST!)
Beauty Water – This is not a toner. Not a cleanser. It is the Smart Toning, Cleansing, Moisturizing liquid based on a natural plant therapy that exfoliates and moisturizes skin at once LINK: https://www.sephora.com/product/beauty-water
I like to switch between cleaners. My favorites are:
Hydrating Cleanser – DERMAE
Clarifying Clay Cleanser – REN
