Ever try to come up with something thoughtful to gift to that guys-guy you know? I’m talking thinking of something small to give to a friend, your neighbor, or brother. I feel like small thoughtful gifts for women are easy: wine, flowers, a candle and you’re good. Guys? A bit tougher.
Inspired by keeping things simple (and that fact that most guys really don’t care all that much about fuss), I decided to just wrap up a bottle of beer — in a brown lunch sac. No big deal and still thoughtful.
The truth is that often money and gift cards make the best gift choice. Especially for those really hard to buy for people you know, or uh hum, teenagers (I know this all too well!). But just because you are giving a gift that appears to be pretty generic, doesn’t mean you can do it in a thoughtful way. In my opinion, a well wrapped gift can speak volumes! But how to wrap gift cards? Here’s an idea.
The next time you are giving a gift card or some cash, take a few extra minutes to wrap it up nicely. This idea is super simple and I bet you have everything you need already!
I am a firm believer that people come into (and out of) our lives for a reason. Our family is lucky enough to have some pretty awesome neighbors move in recently and we’re feeling super blessed.
After thinking about a thoughtful (yet simple) housewarming gift, I had the idea to put some of my family’s favorite “must have” kitchen items into a jar. I love that everything is contained in a nice glass jar that the family can repurpose once they’ve opened up the gift.
We added a welcome home tag (which we printed from our home computer), tied a piece of twine around the lid and voila! We’ve come up with a simple, yet thoughtful welcoming gift.
The holiday season brings many chilly mornings and even more opportunities to cozy up with a hot cup of coffee. One of my favorite additions to a freshly brewed coffee is a great creamer. What better way to enjoy the season than with a mug full of holiday flavor?
This homemade coffee creamer adds that beloved minty flavor to your favorite morning (or evening) coffee. Make two batches – one for you and one to share with a friend or neighbor. It’s really simple (and inexpensive) to make.
Pour ingredients into a mason jar or other container, tie a ribbon around it and you have a great holiday gift! Create a DIY gift basket by combining the creamer with coffee and box of biscotti.
Need a hostess gift or something special for that home-bartender on your list? Here are a few of my recent favorite gift ideas that will have them stirring, shaking and sipping with a smile. Cheers friends!
