The weekend is almost here and we’re kicking off our 12 days of Christmas!
Day 1 :
This first post is all about Christmas cards.. I’ve posted gift ideas under $10 and gift ideas under $50 but the card has the thoughts- and that’s what matters most, so here’s some inspiration for one of the best parts of gift-giving
Simple yet chic
kraft paper trend
Stay tuned for fun festive drink recipes tomorrow!
As the holidays approach many people will be hosting & attending social gatherings. You may know how much I love having a mix of appetizers at parties, so today I thought I would share a few of my favourite holiday appetizer recipes!
Christmas shopping can be tricky! Especially when the person you are shopping for doesn’t really need anything.. I’ve had this problem a few times so I thought I would share some creative gift ideas under $50.00
For those interested in stocking stuffer ideas, check out this post – products I love under $10- great gift ideas
For the most part you can’t go wrong with a spa service- almost every woman likes a manicure, pedicure or facial once in a while! They often have great deals on Groupon or LivingSocial for this.
Most people tend to buy pyjamas but a robe is a nice piece too! This one is Victoria’s Secret- it is super soft and comes in so many colors.
Take her on a wine tour! Girls love activities and this is a fun date for everyone. Create a gift certificate with a date that works for both of you or purchase one online. It doesn’t have to be expensive and fancy, just a day trip.
Try a brewery tour! We’ve done this and it’s actually a lot of fun- you’ll learn a lot too!
This travel scratch map is really cool. It has the same effect as a scratcher lottery ticket. It is completely gold when you purchase it and as you scratch where you have been the map gains color. You can find these online, at uncommon goods, urban outfitters or many bookstores.
It’s always nice to get something personalized- how cute are these personalized cufflinks? You can get them inexpensively from online retailers on etsy.
December 1st is just around the corner and it seems the weekends are filling up quickly. I love all the parties, cocktails and get togethers that come with the holidays. Having friends and family over is the perfect occasion to get crafty and creative- today’s post is all about wreaths, a fun DIY project for any age.
Here are some of my favourites!
hanging a simple wreath in front of a chalkboard is such a unique way to decorate a small area.
Of course a burlap project- this fabric was so popular with the rustic trends this summer. I like this look for rustic holiday decor! You can find these in most craft stores then personalize them with letters and sparkle.
Looking to do something different? Snowflake cut outs glued together (or onto a wire outline) is a modern way to decorate the door.
Who says a wreath needs to be round?
There are so many online tutorials for creating customized wreaths- this is just a tiny bit if inspiration!
Stay tuned for yummy recipes and some winter wedding inspiration this week!
I can’t believe how fast the month is going by.. It’s almost that time of year where the malls get crazy busy and everyone is rushing to get their Holiday shopping done. I will be starting mine this weekend!
I’ve done a few posts about products I love and today’s post is products I love: under $10. These are perfect for small gifts or stocking stuffers!
I love all the Bath & Body Works products- especially the seasonal ones. They are good quality and priced well. These mini candles are 3 for $10 and the foaming soap is $5.50 (or 3 for $15).
To me, Nivea is a classic product- this lip balm moisturizers and adds a touch of shimmer.
Essie’s toggle to the top- love this rich red.
I know so many people who don’t like to drink water (but know it’s healthy)- Mio offers a great flavour with just a drop!
we all know how much I love stationary- these perfectly girly finds are from Target!
The Ghiradelli Peppermint Bark Squares are some of my favourites! (all their products are delicious)
