i absolutely love giving unique & meaningful gifts. i have so much fun with the thought and creativity that goes into it. when christmas comes, i want to go crazy. so, i decided to make a budget friendly list of wonderful gifts that i have given or would like to give at some point. these will look great under the tree, passed out at a christmas party, or stuffed in a stocking. be inspired & enjoy!
for the married couple:
mr. & mrs. monogrammed mugs. -anthropologie
$12 for set of two
for the caffeine lover:
woodland hive engraved spoons $13 for a set
...or engraved spoons from sycamore hill $12.50-$13.50 each
for anyone full of personality, young & old:
little miss & mr. books...there's one for everyone! these make funny gifts and work for kids and adults. i found some at barnes & noble for under $5 each
and remember, you can get creative and make your own gifts:
1. put together a sampler. purchase five to six sample sizes of anything (coffee packets, tea bags, hot chocolate packets, candy, soda, perfume, nail polish...you can literally do anything) and place in an appropriately sized basket. decorate with ribbons and bows.
2. frame a meaningful photo
3. purchase a holiday plate, like this cute one, and put homemade cookies or candy on top.
...the list is endless
remember to have fun with the gift wrapping! :)
