Gift Ideas

Life has been hectic lately with today (my second day back at school) and the whole battle of reimplementing routine. More to come on this later!

Anyways, on with the post:

Gift Ideas

Whether I know someone well, or barely know them at all, coming up with good gift ideas is a very hard task (at least for me). I feel like most birthdays and other affairs are so rushed that I am forced to pick up a gift card and cute card and call it a day! Lately, however, I have really been trying to put a bit more thought and effort into my gift-giving and here's what I have come up with:

So, without further ado, some awesome go-to, practical, and/or creative gift ideas:

• A Cute Waterbottle, Tumbler, or Coffee Mug: any kind of drinking cup can be personalized and adorable and makes for the perfect "practical" gift

• Monogram Phone Case: serving as another "practical" gift, I feel these gifts are ones that are put to good use, which makes everyone win!

• Monogram Scarf Hanger: I purchased four of these at my local monogram shop (three for my mom, grandma, and I; and one for a friend) and it made for the most perfect gift. My friend always wears scarves, so it worked out perfectly!

• Agendas! : If you haven't put it together by now, I feel agendas are great purchases to make on just about every occasion. Who can't use an agenda? that's right: no one! Great gift.

• Tote Bags: A good friend of mine gave me a monogrammed Lilly poolside tote, and not only was it the cutest thing ever, it was oh so practical!

• Vera Bradley Throw Blanket: I am not really into Vera Bradley (I mean, it's super cute, just not really me), but I own literally so many of their throw blankets. They are sooooo soft, and add a pop of cute color to everything around. Such a cute, and again "practical" gift!

• Monogram Earrings: can I say more?

• Any kind of monogram tee shirt, pullover, sweatshirt, etc. : If you know your recipient on a more personal level (where you would know sizes and such), these are "never go wrong with" gifts!

• Monogram Jewelry Tray: you can buy these on various websites, even etsy, and are super duper cute and functional

Sorry that I just kind of threw this post together, but I owe it to you, my loyal readers!

I hope you have a blessed weekend. Stay safe, happy, and healthy!
