Gift giving: the origin, ideas and inspiration

Gift giving: the origin, ideas and inspiration

Today is meant to provide some inspiration on what gifts to give. As well as provide a way to give a ‘hint’ to those in your life buying gifts! Personally, I’m not a gift person – I like giving them, but it feels so strange to receive them. No idea why this is, but it is. Therefore, in the below you will see some non-traditional gifts suggestions. Also, some white elephant gift ideas and a ‘this or that’ section. Including things like concert tickets, a night out and even flight tickets.

Happy Monday. Because it is two months before Christmas on the day this goes up, I figured it would be a great time to talks about: GIFTS! By the way, I realize not all of my readers celebrate this specific holiday; but also realize that {read more}

Happy Tuesday. More importantly, Happy JUNE! Today I present to you, my favorite Amazon purchases, organized by price range.   Of course, I’ve tried to include a good mix of products.  For example, you will find beauty related products, apparel finds, outdoor related items and even a few gardening products.  Also, you’ll see some dog related items on this list.  

Some are great gifts, and others are super functional for everyday life.   Bianca and I would love to hear what some of your favorites are. Lastly, I hope this can be inspiration for any gift giving or to treat yourself to something!

Previously mentioned favorites can be found here on my 2020 favorites post

By the way, the last most favorite thing I’ve purchased (just to start us off) is this great phone case.  It has a lined inside which I never even thought of needing.  It comes in many colors too.

$25 and under

Here you will find quite a few everyday items, mixed in with some of the products I use to enjoy being outside.  The canvas bags are labeled for makeup, but I use mine as a mini bag to organize the inside of my purse.  You will also see personalized dog collars in this section.  My little Bianca loves hers which includes her full name and our phone number (just in case!)  I found the collars to be high quality and they’ve lasted me over a year!  I bought the corresponding leashes to go with them too.

$25 - $50

This section is filled with some home goods, footwear and other comforts!  Plus, a bubble maker (who doesn’t like the magic of bubbles?!)  You will see coffee related items in this section too.  If you have a love for coffee and no longer have office coffee, the Chemex is the way to go.  This simplistic piece of glass makes for the perfect pour over.  Along with this is an electric tea kettle, something you’d find in every home in the UK, but almost rarely here in the states.  I use my tea kettle at least twice a day.  The one listed here is the Amazon Basics, it lights up which adds a bit of fun.

Higher Ticket items

Some of these items were gifts.  However, all of them I’ve seen in action.  The stroller was on a friend’s baby registry and she thanks me every time we see one another!  The patio set is mine, and I will say I adore it.  It is comfy, shipped safely and looks cute too!
