Today I’m going to be helping y’all window shop, since obviously that’s all anyone has money to do after Black Friday. Maybe we should all go raid monopoly and see if the stores will take the money from there. 🤣
I’m going to be giving you ideas for your sisters, mother, aunts, and (girl) friends. I’m planning for another gift idea post for brothers, father, uncles, and (boy) friends in the future, but at the moment I thought it was best to start with things I would get myself. (Haha.)
First up we have these absolutely beautiful necklaces made by Allison. I’m a strictly no jewelry person, just because I forget about it. (hehe.) But most of my friends find a piece of jewelry a wonderful addition to their wardrobe, and who doesn’t love these hand-lettered necklaces? I was seriously tempted to get one for myself. XD
Everyone uses envelopes, right? Well, why not use pretty envelopes? My friend, Allison, sells some envelopes on her Etsy shop that are just the thing. If you’re giving some to your mom, chose the (less) interesting ones above, or if it’s your pen-pal or friend, chose the cooler design she also offers. This is a really neat gift idea. *nods head quickly*
You’re not sure exactly what to get? This nativity scene is the cutest thing ever! It’s not too big, but just enough to decorate with. (Seriously, it’s so amazing.) I don’t know if I could say enough for it! Last year, I got my mom something similar to it, and she loved it. This is a great gift for mom or grandma.
If your friend, sister, cousin is an Austen lover, what could be better than giving them an Austen twist? I’m not a romance reader, or lover, but this book was written so well! I usually can see right through romances, but I didn’t in this book, which was a wonderful surprise to me.
I like mermaids, I like blankets. I like being warm. What if you could put those three things together? I think this blanket is so cool! I thought about getting one for one of my sisters…Maybe next year? Doesn’t it look so soft?
Inch worms are kinda gross little things in the real world, but what if you could have an inchworm that shared your favorite hobby, like, maybe reading? My friend, Megan, makes the cutest little inch worms on her Etsy shop, which I think you really should explore.
If your friend is a musician, what could be better than getting them a pretty strap for their instrument? You can never have too many straps for your guitar (or was that picks?) You could also get them a pack of strings. Believe me, a musician goes through strings faster than you can imagine. Or, if your friend is a photographer, get her a pretty camera strap.
October blew me away. It made me cry, laugh, and really, I couldn’t sleep after I finished it. (Yes, it was around 11:30 pm, but hey. That’s what books are for.) For some reason, October reminded me so much of me, and yet, then I would see a bit of Emily, and I was Emily. But I’m supposed to be convincing you to buy this, not rave about it. XD It’s a story for 12+ but so masterfully woven and heart touching. I think any friend you’d give it to would thank you over and over for it. 😀
Am I the only one that still loves beanies? Please tell me I’m not all alone. Everyone should keep their head warm, and why not do it in style?
Maybe it’s just because I’m a coffee-loving tee-shirt wearer that I love this shirt so much! A fun gift for anyone is a tee-shirt that matches their interests. I gave my mom a tee-shirt that said, “Blessed” and. scripture verse for her birthday. (Tee-shirts are my go-to gift when I have no ideas. I mean, everyone has to wear clothes, right?)
Of course, you could also just go the easy route and buy tea, coffee, or hot chocolate and some candy for your friend/relative. I don’t blame you. It’s too much work to come up with cool ideas for gifts. *gives an exhausted sigh*. Welp, I’m off to the next thing on my to-do list.
