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! :)

Designer Baby Bedding To Die For

Want to give the ultimate gift to an expecting mother? I am so excited about this one. Naartjie Kids has designer baby bedding now! They have some of the cutest baby bedding and room accessories I have ever seen! We are all loving that trending chevron print, but have you ever thought about using it for a baby’s room? Something else that people are probably not thinking about when it comes to a nursery, is using a neutral color such as gray. I know, I know! It almost sounds crazy not to use bold or pastel colors when it comes to decorating a baby room, but Naartjie Kids just seems to know what they are doing, cause this is seriously the cutest baby bedding I have ever seen.

I love that they have gone outside the typical baby colors and prints with this baby bedding set. Doing something different is so much fun, so why not do something different with your baby room?! Even if the baby could tell you they didn’t like the room, they wouldn’t because it is just so darn cute. I also love that this is a baby room that can be for both girls and boys. I think the combination of the animal prints along with chevron really compliment each other and also make this possible for both boys and girls!

I think if I were to use this baby bedroom set (which I totally will when I have kids) I would love to add pops of color! If you want to keep the sex of the baby a surprise this is a great bedding set to use because after you find out the sex you can buy just a few colored accessories. Adding a colored pillow or two, a colored rug, or colored curtains would be very cute pops of color. If you like having pictures on the walls, they would really stand out against the gray color theme!

Tell me what you think of the designer baby bedding!

Massages in Orange County for the Bride and Groom

Summer is well known for the Wedding Season as well as the Summer vacations. During the summer I go to a few weddings typically every year. A gift I have gotten back great feedback on is couples massages in Orange County. I buy the bride and groom a massage package gift they  certificate. The great part about this is that the couple does not have to have the massages together in the same room, they can get the massages at the same time but in separate rooms if that is what they want.

As I said, I have had great feedback on giving massages to couples as a wedding gift. They can take a day after the ceremony when things slow down a bit to take some time to relax as a couple and unwind. I think is makes a opportunity to take the day and have some lunch or dinner afterwards and make a date out of it. Being a newly married couple is tough, it takes sometime to flatten out the wrinkles of what married life actually is to what you imagined it to be. Another helpful tool I have found is this book, there are many out there, it is good to get some advice from the experts at times.

Instawatch is Sweet

watch_300

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.
