Mother’s Day Gift Guide :: 2017

Mother’s Day is right around the corner – May 14th to be exact. I love holidays like this because they are an excuse to spoil your loved ones. It’s also a great excuse to do a bit of shopping. Win-win!

I typically like to get several different things and make like a gift basket of sorts. Last year, I grabbed a purse for my mom and filled it with fun, different little bits for her.  It was fun. I think I might make the purse gift bag idea a Mother’s Day regular.

These gifts range from the affordable to the seriously extravagant. I know not everybody’s budget allows for some of these more expensive items, but you and your siblings (or father, or whomever) could always go in on some of these if they seem up your alley.

It’s wedding season!

While I always enjoy helping people shop, as a wedding guest it can be extremely stressful. I decided to put together a bit of inspiration for the wedding season. Continue reading

Closet Wish List :: Plaid

Plaid is one of my favorite colors and I have pretty much lost count of how much plaid I own. If I were one of those people that organize their closet by color or pattern, over half would be plaid . . .

And I am not remotely ashamed of this. In fact, I put this little closet wish list together to show you that no matter what your signature style there is a plaid for you.

25 Days of Christmas :: Day 6 :: Ugly & Cute Christmas Sweater Wish List

One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is unpacking my Christmas sweaters and cuddling up in them with a cup of hot coco. I actually start pulling them on the day after Thanksgiving and go Black Friday shopping in one every year.

I scourer the internet all year for new finds, looking for the perfect ugly or cute Christmas sweater. These are some of my favorite Christmas sweaters. I know a few of these say they’re men’s sweaters, but I totally believe that Christmas sweaters are pretty unisex. But if you don’t agree, consider them a bonus sweater for your man.

25 Days of Christmas :: Day 2 :: Gift Guide for Him

These gifts could work for any man in your life. And honestly, it doesn’t have to be men. These gifts are fun and would be great for anybody!

 

The Glass Holder ::

Send your boyfriend over the moon and make him the coolest of his friends with these DIY alcohol kits. From ale to hard liquor, Uncommon Goods has the right kit for your man at the right price.

The links are below and I’ll be really honest – some of the different brew kits look SO similar so I may have them linked as the wrong one, BUT the all the links are all there (even if slightly jumbled).

From top to bottom ::  Belgian Brew Kit, Gin Kit, Irish Brew Kit, Oktober Brew Kit, Texas Ale Kit, West Coast Ale Kit, and Whiskey and Rum Kit.

Now that your man can make his own alcohol, he needs something cool to show off to his friends when he invites them over for a drink. Any of these picks are sure to please – even if he hasn’t quite made it to making his own liquor.

Top to bottom :: Beer Flight, Home Brew JournalOne the Rocks Set, and Home Brew Kit. 

The Sports Fanatic ::

We’ve all been there – they love sports but they also own every jersey and ball cap known to man. Sometimes it’s hard to find something they’ll love that show their team spirt. These slightly unconventional ways will help them rock their fav colors whenever and wherever.

Top to Bottom :: Broncos Bottle Opener, Yankee Coasters, Soccer Prints, Helmet Cufflinks, Baseball CufflinksSteel MLB Logo, Baseball Cutting Board, and Personalized Golf Book.

The Reader ::

Always has his nose in a book and a stack of unread ones on a table somewhere? Maybe he’s they type that uses books for decorations because he (like me!) ran out of shelf space a long time ago. Well, luckily for you this makes him super easy to shop for – sometimes. Pick any of these cool gifts and it’ll sure be a hit.

Top to Bottom :: Book Tee, Book Stand, Reading Journal, Staircase Bookends, and Lamp Bookends

The Cook ::

I love a man that can cook and adore those that love to do it. If your man likes to dabble in the kitchen, these are perfect for him.

Top to Bottom :: Bamboo Salt Chest, Potato Seasoning, Kentucky Bourbon Pecan Pie Filling, Pizza Dice, Salt & Pepper Mill, Flavors of America Salt Kit, Soup & Sandwich Tray, and Pizza Cutter.

The Man Who Has Everything ::

These are the toughest to shop for – you know who I’m talking about, the guy that pretty much has everything and then some. These picks are unique and sure to please!

 Top to Bottom :: Birthday Book, Custom Puzzle, Grilled Cheese Bags, Mini Bowling, Phone Acoustic, Pranamat and Pillow, Record Doormat, Sand Art, Tie Roll, and Recycled Wetsuit Yoga Mat.

As you can see, I adore Uncommon Goods for fun and unique presents. But Etsy and a ton of other sites are wonderful, too.

Where do you go when you need a unique gift?
