One of my favorite requests to receive from friends and family is my help finding a gift for someone special. Over the years I’ve been asked to put together Easter baskets and I thought I’d share some of my favorite things to include for a non-food/candy basket for grown up girls! These photos are of a ‘mock’ basket of ideas that include gifts I have personally received that would be perfect to give for Easter! (Of course, I’m keeping all of these items, but you get the idea!)
Even more than my birthday and Christmas I love Valentine’s Day! It’s the one day of the year you can be beyond romantic and sappy and no one can make fun of you! You can wear pink and red and dress up without anyone thinking it’s odd or asking you, “why?” Chocolate calories don’t count and people are just sweeter. ❤️ I love giving gifts on Valentine’s Day but I also don’t hate receiving them! Here are 6 things that would make my little heart go pitter-patter if handed on the 14th!
I don’t want give away any surprises, but I have to admit I snagged a few things from this list to gift my BFF for this Galentine’s Day, so you know I’m serious when I tell you I love these picks! Do you exchange Valentine’s Day gifts with your bestie or just your significant other? I’d love to hear about your special V-Day traditions!
While I may not have new, never-before-thought-of-co-worker gift ideas for the Holidays, I wanted to do something a bit less expected than ornaments or boxes of candy. This year I handmade a few items and tried to personalize the gift for each individual on my list 🙂
This years gift ideas included:
- Handmade beaded headband
- Handmade velvet cross choker
- Tee with handmade glitter silhouette (I used an image from social media of my co-worker’s sweet dog and created the glitter iron-on!)
- Adult coloring book + colored pencils
- Hand cream + facial refreshing spray
- Graphic Socks
- Graphic Tie
- Wine bottle accessories (instead of gifting wine, and inevitably choosing the wrong kind!)
- Cozy mug with hot chocolate mix
- Gift cards (when in doubt let them choose what they really want!)
I don’t usually have the time to put this much planning into Christmas for anyone, but I wanted to do something fun because I don’t know how many Christmases I get to have with this particular group of people before we move away from Nashville, and I will miss all of them so much!

Do you like to gift all of your co-workers the same thing (so everyone feels equal!) or purchase individual gifts depending on the person (with the hope you know them as well as you think you do!)
