A Rich Chocolate Surprie

Graduations, birthdays, weddings, Christmas, really any occasion you can give money as the gift. We all know there are different times when we actually want to give money as a gift. Does anyone else just giving someone a card with some money on the inside? I seriously hate doing that because it just seems so boring, and like there was no thought or effort put into it!

Chocolate moneyFor those time when I do want to give someone money, I like to do it in a fun way. My favorite is to put the money in a chocolate box like this one. Either save a box from a previous buy or just go any buy a cheep box of chocolates…. or buy the ones you like so you can eat them all! You could also use an existing box you have and just use, mini cup cake tins.

If you wrap it, when they open it, they will probably be less than exciting about the box of chocolates you just gave them. Either have them open it right away, or let the joke go on for as long as the wait to open the chocolates! Who knows it might be a while until they realize they have a bunch of money!

52 Reasons Why I Love You

card giftNeed a special gift idea for the one you love? Maybe it’s your wedding day, you two just moved, or just feeling like you want to do something special for him or her. You cannot say “I love you” enough in your relationship, and sometimes when something even small is done we forget to let them know we love them.

To let him or her know you love them more than they know, make them a book of all the reasons your love them! I love this cute idea of putting all of them in a deck of cards and having “52 reasons I love you.” So you don’t have to think of all 52 on the spot, every time you think of one go write it down until you have compiled a list of 52 reasons. This is such a cute, simple and special way of reminding someone how much and why you love them!

 

The Ultimate Wedding Gift

I had the most amazing gift idea the other day.. I don’t know why people haven’t thought of this sooner, but I am pretty proud of thinking of this. If you have already thought of it.. I’m sorry. I was buying my friend a wedding gift and after I bought the gift, I had to buy wrapping paper, ribbon, and a card. I was annoyed that I didn’t have any wrapping paper at home that would work for a wedding gift, and then all of a sudden it hit me.

A great wedding gift isn’t always something on the registry, or those wine glasses you think everyone would like. A great wedding gift is something that they won’t know they need until the time comes that they need it for. In my case, this would be a whole bunch of gift giving necessities. A lot of times people don’t buy the wrapping paper, gift bag, bows, ribbon, cards etc. until they need them! A lot of times buying theses things are quite annoying. The next time I get a gift for someone’s wedding or something like that, I am going to buy them a container filled with different wrapping paper, bow, ribbon, and all that good stuff! I just googled wrapping paper storage and this walmart kit came up.Screen Shot 2014-08-25 at 4.57.51 PM

Even when I see a wrapping paper deal, I never want to buy it because I don’t need it at the time, so it doesn’t seem like a smart purchase. Buying off season wrapping paper is the best time to get it thought. They are always cheaper if you get seasonal wrapping paper not during that season! I would probably get a larger one to hold more things. All of these gift giving necessities can really add up at the register, AKA a very sufficient wedding gift! :)

Instawatch is Sweet

This watch is one of the latest tech gadgets on my must have list. The Instawatch lets you upload your favorite Instagram shot, to the watch face then pick the color of the band. Voila you now have a customized watch in no time.

There are some really great shots I have taken then loaded up to Instagram and made even better. With the special effects available on Instagram you can take an ordinary or even a blah photo and make enhancements to it that turn it into a really good photo.

I know my daughter will love this one for her birthday. As the younger crowd is moving away from Facebook they are now using sites like Instagram more and more.

Every Man Needs A Backpack

fox-tactical-medium-transport-pack-4Need an gift idea for him? Every guy needs a heavy duty back pack. Whether or not he is going on crazy even dangerous adventures, going camping for the weekend, or just taking a small trip, he can definitely make great use of a Fox Tactical Medium Transport Pack. This backpack is actually amazing. it can safely hold so many different things. You would think guys don’t bring that much stuff when they are traveling, but you would be surprised. If he isn’t totally into camo there is an all black option too. I don’t know any guy that wouldn’t want a great quality backpack for traveling.
