Wrapping Paper Neighbor Gift Idea with Printable

I love neighbor gifts for the holidays! It is a great way to show your neighbors and friends that you are thinking about them during the holidays. The holiday season can get so crazy, sometimes you aren’t able to visit friends as much as you wish, so giving a little gift is a nice way to show them that you are still thinking about them! Neighbor gifts can be really hard because the price can really start adding up when you are buying for so many people and making treats for so many people can be extremely time consuming. I love giving gifts that people will be able to use, which is why I loved the idea of giving wrapping paper as a gift so that they could use it to wrap their Christmas gifts this season!

Shrinky Dinks Ornaments Kid’s Gift Idea

Getting gifts for your kids to give to their friends for Christmas can get SO expensive! My daughter really wanted to give her friends something for Christmas, but when you are four years old the concept of money isn’t quite there. We finally agreed on giving her friends some handmade ornaments. I was trying to come up with a cute ornament that could be personal, but easy and cost effective as well and I remembered Shrinky Dinks! I used to make different creations with Shrinky Dinks as a kid and I knew they would be perfect to make ornaments with too! The best part is that each ornament ended up costing about 50 cents each to make!

To make these, I used the print and cut option on my Silhouette Cameo machine. This made making these incredibly easy because I printed them out and just had the Silhouette cut them out for me and they looked great! Of course, if you don’t have a Silhouette Cameo, you could print off your own design on the Shrinky Dinks and cut them out yourself, just know it will take you much longer and they won’t look as crisp. But it can be done! [Read more…]

Family Gift Ideas Everyone Will Enjoy

This holiday season, I’m swapping gifts with another blogger for her entire family for eBay’s holiday gift exchange. I’ve partnered with eBay to create this post! Enjoy!

I still remember receiving family gifts when I was younger. It may sound strange, but the thoughts of getting a gift as a family was almost more exciting to me than getting an individual gift! It was always such a mystery to see what gift would fit our entire family. It was so much fun to see what the gift givers thought our family would enjoy. Those gifts still go down as some of my favorite gifts I have ever been able to enjoy!

I love the idea of giving a family gift. Instead of purchasing several smaller gifts, you can put your entire gifting budget to one big item that everyone can enjoy. Most of those bigger ticket items aren’t things that families would typically think to spend their own money on, so they make really great gifts! 

I put together a few suggestions to help you find the perfect gift when you need family gift ideas!

I loved searching for great gift ideas on eBay. It is a site that I can trust and I know that it is full of an incredible variety of items! No matter what types of things the family enjoys, eBay is sure to have something that would make a perfect gift for them! [Read more…]

Stylish Father’s Day Gift Ideas

This post contains affiliate links and I was given some product in exchange for brand exposure, but was in no other way compensated for this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Who says dad can’t have a little pampering or stylish gift for Father’s Day? Back away from the ties and traditional gifts and give him something that he may not be expecting, but will really appreciate!

This post contains affiliate links.

Do you know what you are getting your significant other for Valentine’s Day? As silly as some people may think that Valentine’s Day is, I think that it is a really good reminder to show the people you love your appreciation. I know that it is something we should be doing on a daily basis, but going out of your way to treat someone you care about is important too! I love making Valentine’s Day a special day for not only my husband, but for my daughter too! Make sure you show your loved ones you care!

With that being said, I wanted to share some gift ideas in case you are feeling a little stuck as to what to get him/her this Valentine’s Day.

Valentine’s Day “Galentine” Gift Idea and Printable Tag

I felt the magic of Swiss herbs in Ricola Herb and Throat drops as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #swissherbs

Over the past few years, I have noticed a trend that I really love the idea of. Galentine’s Day! It is basically just an excuse to spoil your friends with gifts for Valentine’s Day. Let’s be honest though, they probably are more fun to shop for than the man in your life! This year, I wanted to put together a little bag of goodies that a busy mom would appreciate having and put it together as kind of a “survival kit” as a Galentine’s Day present.

This post contains affiliate links. It’s pretty much guaranteed that the money will be spent on more books!

I married a major book lover. I grew up with a moderate love of books, but I learned an entirely new appreciation of books when I got married. It has been really special to see that same love be passed down to my daughter as she grows up. I just knew that I wanted to put together the best book gift guide ever for this Christmas! There are about 100 books here who have been absolutely beloved by my family or someone I love. I didn’t want this book gift guide to be just a list of best sellers. I wanted this to be a list of books that someone has actually cherished! I hope that you are able to find your next great book or your family’s new favorite book to read together. Books are popular Christmas gifts, so why not make sure it is a good one?!

I give you, The Ultimate Book Gift Idea Guide!

Easy Elmo Gift Idea

We played with the Playskool Sesame Street Play All Day Elmo toy as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. #PLAYSKOOLCREW

Christmas is just around the corner and it is time to start thinking seriously about what gifts you are going to be giving this year! My daughter has loved Elmo since she barely turned one. She had an Elmo themed birthday party and was even Elmo for her second Halloween!

JTV Mother’s Day Gifts and Giveaway

Mother’s Day can be a really beautiful day for moms, but it can also be a hard day for moms. I know the moms who struggle with this day struggle for different reasons. Some feel like it is a frustrating day because they feel unappreciated every other day of the year, others don’t feel like they deserve the praise they receive on Mother’s Day. Me? I love Mother’s Day! I have always loved celebrating the moms in my life! I love calling my grandmas to wish them a happy Mother’s Day and spoiling my own mom. Now that I am a mother, I appreciate having the one day that I feel like a rock star. It doesn’t happen often, so I enjoy embracing it! I think all moms should learn to embrace Mother’s Day. It wasn’t created to make moms feel bad about themselves. That is quite the opposite!

This year, I wanted to do something extra special for my mom. That’s why I teamed up with JTV (Jewelry Television) and I am giving her this beautiful ring for Mother’s Day!

Ring Giveaway on www.girllovesglam.com

That sounds really cool, right? Well, it is even more special because I got one for me too! I think it will be a pretty special gift knowing that we both get to experience motherhood together. It is kind of a symbol of that. My mom has always been there for me. She has literally seen me at my best and at my worst. I call and text her constantly asking for advice with my own experiences I am having as a mother. I think these rings will be a symbol of that.
