Vanilla Mint Sugar Scrub

I absolutely love how my skin feels when I am exfoliating regularly. It leaves skin feeling baby soft! I used to buy different scrubs to use in the shower, but they can be quite expensive. The good  news is that making your own scrub costs very little and takes less than 15 minutes. It is a major win! I love making different varieties to try, but I also love making them to give as gifts! This vanilla mint sugar scrub is one of my favorite scrubs to make. The scent is really soothing and delicious!

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!

Customized Children’s Book

We are serious book fans at our house! Having and educator as a husband, I have always known that books would play a big part in how our children were going to be raised. I am so grateful for his love of books because I just didn’t grow up loving books as much as he did. Seeing his love of reading rub off on our daughter has truly been a joy to watch.

We are constantly on the look out for great children’s books. There are so many children’s books out there! It is sometimes hard to find books that are both enjoyable for the parent and the child to read. We definitely have our favorite authors that we know we can count on, but we are always on the lookout for more great books to add to our collection. [Read more…]

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!

Floral and Polka Dot Acrylic Makeup Case

This post contains affiliate links and was written as a part of an ambassadorship with Expressions Vinyl.

Need a great Mother’s Day gift idea? Mother’s Day can be hard holiday to shop for because you want your gift to be thoughtful. The problem is a lot of thoughtful gifts aren’t necessarily things that mom can use. I love the idea of combining both a practical gift with something thoughtful that she will love. That’s why I decided to cover a clear acrylic makeup case with vinyl to turn it into a floral and polka dot makeup holder and fill it with some of my favorite beauty products as the perfect Mother’s Day gift!
