Just Another Gift Guide

With Christmas around the corner, gift guides are all the rage in the blogger world right now. You can find a guide for everyone–women, kids, moms, dads, grandparents, etc. They. Are. Awesome. I’ve been reading through several of the main blogs I follow and got to thinking of some of the best gifts I’ve received and some of the gifts I was most excited to give…. Holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers, etc.  Check out my faves! *Lots of clickable links*

1. Gift Card for Restaurants. Seems like no big deal, but when you’ve just had a baby, you’re exhausted, no one feels like cooking, the casseroles are all gone, those restaurant gift cards are the bomb dot com. It’s always a good choice for a baby shower, but also as Christmas gifts to those couples who don’t get many date nights or maybe money is tightly budgeted, not allowing for fancy shmancy steaks on the town. Those date nights get expensive with babysitters, food, drinks, gas money {when you’re like us and live an hour from civilation}, etc etc etc. Hand over the gift cards, folks. We love em!

2. Victoria’s Secret Sweats. If there’s something I splurge on, it’s from Victoria’s Secret. Spending a small fortune on their sweat pants is more than worth it to me. I feel cute (as cute as you can feel when you’re a mom of three) and super comfy all at the same time in VS sleepwear. And athletic wear. And panties. Slippers. Perfume. Ok, I kinda love Victoria.

3. Mother’s Bracelet. This is actually a gift I bought for my mom and mother-in-law a few years ago. So for them it was a Grandmother’s Bracelet, with each pearl colored the birthstone of all their grand babies.

I thought they were b-e-a-yootiful and I’m a sucker for anything personalized.

4. Personalized Make-Up Bag. Because like I said, anything is better personalized. These are inexpensive but fun and pretty darn durable {my BFF finally retired the one I gave her after about five years}. You’re not going to fit $1000 worth of Sephora in it, but it’ll work well for the basics…perfect for packing on vacation or just to keep your “every day” make-up in to keep things handy.Ladies Embroidered Make Up Bag - 6797 There are multiple colors available and click here for another style.

5. Purses // Handbags. This is one of my MOST FAVORITE gifts to receive. I can’t get enough. They’re not something I search for for myself but I LOVE LOVE LOVE opening one up.
