Perfect Gift Idea (for you know who)

Everyone has that certain someone that is hard to buy for – – you know who you are (by the way)!!  They either say, I don’t need anything or they go out and buy it for themselves right before the holidays!  Grrrrrrr…. But, giving the gift of movie tickets is perfect cuz, well, everyone likes going to the movies don’t they?  And as long as your getting them a movie theater gift card, here is the cutest way to give it to them. Check out my enJOY the MOVIE greeting card. Available in my Everyday HOLIDAY shop at Etsy. And hey, maybe they’ll invite you to the movies too.

 

Mirror Mirror on the wall (or in my purse)

Are you thinking of “booing” a friend or neighbor for Halloween? Or thanking your new carpool friend? Maybe sending a lil something to that teacher, yoga instructor, class mate for being there for you? And of course you want to honor all those strong women in your lives who have battled cancer. The “Thanks for Giving” season coming soon.  Well I have a lil something that would be perfect.  Very practical, very economical and very personal (especially when you choose the perfect thing to say).  Check out my compact mirrors.  

I have SEVERAL October birthdays (all girls) in my family and I plan on making some for them.  Perfect for Sweetest Day (10/16) or a Welcome Fall Y’all gift, and even Halloween (I’m thinking a cute pumpkin face) and as always Thanksgiving hostess gift.  Pop over to my Etsy shop for more ideas.  And come on sweater weather – I am ready to get out of these shorts and flip flops.

Mother’s Day Thoughts

This year on May 12 we will be honoring our moms, grandmothers, nana’s, step moms, foster moms … well you get my drift.  Those all important ladies who mold us, inspire us, guide us, and yes, party with us to make us better people.  I have a suggestion to help you send them shopping. All the way to their favorite store for some fun time. Maybe they will let you go along.  And stop for lunch. You can treat.

I created this cute purse shaped greeting card that can be personalized with her name or whatever floats your boat. It can be for a birthday or other special occasion.  There’s room inside for your sentiment and a place to include a gift card or money. Check it out at my Etsy shop.  Purchase by May 5 to ensure time for shipping.

 

Easy Peasy Holiday Shopping

Why stress about shopping on black friday? who needs to stay up all night, get trampled in those crowds to buy the perfect gift? I’ve got you covered right here.  Just make a list and leisurely pick up needed gift cards right in the grocery store when shopping for your turkey.  Then head over to my Etsy shop to get the perfect gift card holder for all. 

A super cute coffee cup works for most of your list as who doesn’t like coffee, tea or sweet treats? Perhaps a die hard mall shopper friend would enjoy a gift card to her favorite lingerie shop. And for him – a manly tape measure card to hold a hardware store gift card.  For the whole family? a night at the movies of course. Just pop in that movie ticket gift card in my savory popcorn style card.

I’ve got you covered my friends. Your welcome! Just click here to visit my shop for other great gift ideas.

Beat the HEAT

Wow it has been sooooo hot here (and I live at the beach) so what’s the best solution? Air conditioning of course.  So we usually head to our favorite cool movie theater.  It has food, beer, stadium seating in those awesome loungers, candy, flavored popcorn and did I mention draft beer?  LOL Anyhow, I was thinking it would be a great idea to give the gift of cool movie time to others.  Just pop in a movie theater ticket (you can buy them online or in any store; grocery, target, etc) in my cute popcorn box greeting card and you have the best birthday, anniversary, end of summer, back to school gift ever.  It’s the perfect gift for that hard to buy for relative. A great thank-you to your summer carpool friend who dragged your kids to the beach with hers. And the best gift for that dog – cat -house sitter while you were on vacation friend. Check it out in my Etsy shop. 

 

School’s Almost OUT!

Time for the summer plans to begin. But before you do, don’t forget to show your appreciation to your child’s teachers, aides, tutors, coaches and other mentors in their lives.  They all could use a coffee shop gift card (coffee, tea, snack, dessert, etc.) I designed this Coffee Cup so all you have to do is pop in that gift card.  I will even personalize it with their name.  Check it out at my Etsy shop soon.  Thanks A Latte!
