Holiday Series: Gift Wrap – It’s All In The Trimmings

Don’t get me wrong – I adore a beautifully designed gift wrap paper and sometimes buy a roll just to add to my collection of uniquely crafted wraps. But lately, in light of all things to save our planet, I cannot help but appreciate the simplest of gift wrapping ideas. Which by the way, I’ve adapted for years – finding the most unusual ways to wrap presents with grocery paper bags, tissue paper, newspaper, old magazine pages, and even book pages – because at the end of the day, it is all about the trimming… {source here, and here}

The List of Posibilities for This Holiday Season

I hate the concept of – I can’t because…, or, there is no way possible…., or simply, NO it won’t work…  Because I am firm believer of anything is possible – and there are solutions to every problem, and the only thing holding a person back is their inability to think outside the norm.

Holiday Series: Gift Ideas For the Traveler

That would be me – the traveler, so I figured I’d kick off my holiday gift idea series with some ideal gifts for the traveler in your life or the ones you are trying to introduce the idea to – that travelling is probably one of the best experience any human can have in their lifetime and a lifetime spent not travelling – is a life not lived well. 🙂 {featured image and source}

There is one  gift I recommend for the man or woman in your life who has a certain flair for things – and if you haven’t yet found that gift, then please consider the following for Christmas and beyond: Not just any bag, but a Coach bag, styles in variation, the colors classic, the creations priced just right – see here for yourself   A Pen for the businessman at heart and not just any pen, consider Parker – the classic American purveyers of pens:     And for the man who prefers casual – then these are the perfect Coach finds for him:

Gift Ideas For Him or Them

But then I seem to always have trouble finding a unique gift or something re-invented for the men in our family. So, this year while I shopped online – I found some cool gift ideas and figured I’d share it here:  

What to See, Eat and Buy Yourself To Cheer Up This Holiday Season

No matter how crazy this year has been for me, I’ve made a conscious effort to get into the spirit of the holiday season. Encouraging everyone around me to do the same – even if it’s simply decorating the Christmas tree or home or work space – just do it. I promise it will make you feel a little bit better. So once the decorations are up, then consider a few more things to life up your spirit: There are so many Holiday themed films, make popcorn, open a bottle of bubbly and simply indulge in adult Christmas movies , or chuck the bubbly and watch the ones for the entire family. And if going for the holiday themed film experience at a movie theater, see The Man Who Invented Christmas, or a local independent theater playing classic Christmas movies.  Also my favorite Hallmark films for 2017 are Operation Christmas, and Miss Christmas. That’s not saying I haven’t been binge watching the rest.   I think for the holidays, pause the obsession about watching your …

Holiday Party Gift Exchange Theme

In the comings weeks all of us are destined to be involved in some sort of gift exchange among family members and friends – and/or – coworkers. And this particular activity can be not only stressful but pretty expensive. So, to make it easier on yourself to gift this year, consider setting a theme like these and more  The Themed Exchange If you want to make everyone’s shopping a little more challenging, designate a theme that you all have to stick to. For example, it could be “Made in America,” a theme that features items from the States or it could be “Anything Blue” where you have to buy something only in that color. The good news is that you can be as tame or as whacky as you’d like. After all of the gifts are opened, vote for who you think brought the gift that best fit the theme (a prize is optional). The Joint Gift Instead of getting each other individual gifts, why not pool your money to get something awesome? It can be something as good as …
