So you just put stamps on your bridal lingerie invitations and sent them out in the mail, but now what? This can sometimes be an awkward gift to ask people for, because of the privacy that lingerie entails. My advice? Have fun with it.
Hopefully in your invitation you sent out a little card with your sizes on it. Lingerie often can’t be returned (would YOU want somebody else’s returned lingerie items? No, thank you!) and this avoids any awkward or embarrassing guesses.
Since you can’t often register for lingerie, you can also include a little “favorite colors” list on your sizes, or throw caution to the wind and trust that your guests know your taste.
You are going to LOVE the gifts you get (I know this changes it up from my traditional gift-GIVING, but sometimes a girl needs to be a little spoiled, too). Make sure to pack them on your honeymoon.
Now here is a gentleman who knows how to give a gift, Hugh Hefner bought his wife, Crystal Harris a mansion. A five million dollar mansion in the Hollywood Hills. The deed of the house is registered to a trust in both his name and Crystal’s name. The couple still currently live in the Playboy mansion but that home is technically owned by Playboy Enterprises.
Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris wed on New Years Eve. According to sources, Hefner had Harris sign an iron clad prenup which included she would vacate the mansion if they divorce or he passes away, she has no legal rights to the Playboy mansion. This home in Hollywood Hills then must be where she will reside once she has to move out of the Playboy mansion. It is also a nice quiet get away for Hef. The home is a smart home, technologically advanced with a modern feel and an open floor plan.
The Hefners seem quite happy together and Hugh wants spend the rest of his days with Crystal. Hopefully this all works out for him because he is on his third marriage now and with his age there is not a lot of time to find a fourth one.
It can sometimes be challenging to find a nice gift for the plus size person close to your heart. When shopping for clothes for young people the choices in junior plus size are not always as varied as the choices in the more widely worn sizes. There is a great market for this though. Luckily I found some nice options for my nieces whom I love to give clothes to. They love fashion and they are always excited to see what their favorite aunt, (as I call myself), has found for them this time.
Giving my nieces clothing that they love which is in fashion, and that fits them makes me so happy. The saddest thing is to see an outfit they love but won’t fit them. I don’t want them growing up with a poor body image so I do all that I can to encourage them.
Accessories are another thing that is fun to give and if you are unsure of sizes you don’t have to worry as much about getting the size correct. Scarves are in right now and are hot, they are worn in all seasons too. Hats, sunglasses, and big chunky necklaces are fun pieces that are versatile like scarves and will add a pop of color to another wise conservative look.
It is a kind gesture to bring a new neighbor a house warming gift. It is nice to be able to reach out and say hello to meet them and introduce yourself and break the ice. I also have an anterior motive, I like to size my neighbors up because you never know what kind of people they could be. Luckily all of my neighbors have been kind and friendly. Gift giving to strangers can be tricky and also maybe a little awkward sometimes. I have a few gifts I stick with in these situations, on of them is Kringle Candles. Because there are so many scents I can coordinate them with whatever season is upon us.
The new Spring and Summer line includes delicious scents like, Citrus and Sage, Peony, Sunflower Sunrise, Tranquil Waters, Soothing Cinnamon and Royal Cherries. Another gift for new neighbors who may not seem like the candle type is home baked gifts. Everyone eats and it is helpful to have ready made food available when people are busy reorganizing and unpacking. Banana Bread is usually a hit, or muffins, or even a fruit basket. New neighbors will appreciate the time you took to reach out to them and you can gain some peace of mind in knowing a little more about them as well.
This question perplexed by friend and her fiancee. While the tradition of a plain gold band is timeless and will never go out of style there is a draw to a fancy rings as well. As usual I suggested a list of Pros to each and see how they stack up. There are times when a list of pros and cons can lay it all out and make a decision easier. I think it helped put the decision in perspective. Here is what we came up with.
- will not get caught on things as easily
- easy to clean
- low maintenance
- repairs less likely
- can’t lose stones
- more affordable
- can customize
- sparkly again
So there seem to be more pros in her list to a plain band than an ornate ring. This is a decision that should come from the heart, it is something to be worn for the rest of your life and will probably be the most meaningful piece of jewelry you will ever wear. Practicality has a place but it should not be the only deciding factor. I am excited to see what she goes with. I did suggest she go with a few in between choices, whatever she picks it will be beautiful.
