Gift Idea for Creative Kids

I am affiliate with Loog Guitars. I receive commission from sales associated with the links below.

Sometimes it can be difficult to shop for creative kids. If you have a kid who loves to create things, you know what I am talking about. Traditional toys aren’t always the best option!

Loog Guitar Review

I am so excited to give my daughter a Loog guitar this Christmas! It is a guitar with three strings, so it is easier for beginners to play. They are made in smaller sizes for little hands, but they sound like a guitar, not a ukulele. They come with flashcards to help teach musical notes and there is an app that can teach how to play actual songs! [Read more…]

Teacher Appreciation Manicure Gift Envelope

It is hard to believe that the end of the school year is near! It is teacher appreciation and end of year teacher gift season! As a wife of a former teacher, I know that teachers don’t need anymore mugs or even chocolate. Give gifts that you would want to give to your friends! They don’t need to be expensive, just thoughtful. I absolutely love Color Street nails for that exact reason. They are 100% nail polish strips that last longer than traditional nail polish, are super affordable, and they make perfect gifts!

These gift envelopes are the perfect way to “wrap” Color Street nails. You just print them out on cardstock paper, cut them out, and tape or glue them together. On one example, I used double sided tape to tape them together and on the other one I used washi tape. You can do  it however you want! [Read more…]

What to Buy Yourself with Your Christmas Money

Whenever I receive money for Christmas, I suddenly feel this intense pressure about what I am going to spend it on. Unfortunately, there are a lot of times that I take so long to decide what I want, that I end up spending the money on something for my kids or putting it toward groceries. This year, I am coming with a list of things I know I would love. Heaven knows that there isn’t money just sitting around for most moms to just spend on themselves, so it is important to take this unique opportunity and TREAT YO SELF!

Minnie Mouse Hair Clip and Disneyland GIVEAWAY

Yes, you read that correctly. Somebody is going to win a Southern California trip! All of the giveaway info is at the bottom of this post!

When you have a daughter who is as Minnie Mouse obsessed as I do, you have to think of every possible Minnie Mouse themed piece of clothing and accessory that you can make because she just can’t have enough! One day, I was doing her hair and I watched as she carefully chose which bow to wear. It hit me that we could totally make her her own Minnie Mouse inspired bow that would have her feeling like she was wearing Minnie ears any day, without feeling like she is wearing a dress up.

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!

Shrinky Dinks Christmas Ornaments as Kid's Friend Gifts for about 50 cents each! on www.girllovesglam.com

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!

Men like accessories just as much as we do, they just keep it a little more quiet than we do. Find some great sunglasses, a watch, or even a rad belt to give him to make him feel like he is one of the cool kids.  [Read more…]
