Are you a serial gift card giver? It’s time to break the habit, and get personal with your holiday gifts. Here are a few suggestions for those who are new to the gift-giving game.
The Undercover Groomer – This Working Man’s Hygiene Kit from Uncommon Goods is a great gift idea for that man in your life who works with his hands, but still wants to keep them baby-soft. He may accept it begrudgingly, but he’ll be smiling on the inside.
The Fashion Savvy Pinner – You know that friend who says she wants to get crafty and make things, but the excuses always seem to pile up? Take those excuses out of the equation with a Project DIY gift subscription! Project DIY is a carefully curated collection of DIY accessories that are perfect for crafting beginners, and the boxes come with everything your friend needs to start making envy-worthy fashion pieces. The best part is that it comes right to your door every month! The individual projects are also fantastic stocking stuffers.
The Playful Party Host – Bringing people together and creating lasting memories are the number one goals of a great host. Give them a helping hand with this Vintage Bookshelf Edition of Clue! Guests won’t only be wondering if it was Professor Plum in the ballroom with a candlestick, they’ll also be wondering where to find such an aesthetically pleasing version of the game.
The Design-Conscious Bookworm – Barnes and Nobles reinvents their classics collection with beautiful hardcover editions. Replace the torn and overworked copy of their favorite novel with one of these gorgeous books! There are a lot of great classics to choose from. So whether they enjoy the twisted world of Wonderland or want to delve into the world of philosophy with Plato, they’re sure to be pleasantly surprised.
Picky Eaters – You know how kids are always told NOT to play with their food? This Garden Plate let’s them do the opposite with a bunch of garden “tools”/utensils. Why can’t eating be more fun? Plus, imagining that they grew their own vegetables in their plate may encourage them to eat more greens! No guarantees though.

My favorite part of the year is finally here. The holidays to me means fun gatherings, fun decorations and great presents. I love decorating for the holidays. You can either shop for new decorations or, what I love to do, make my own. Here is a decoration you can wrap your Christmas tree or around you house, it made of paillettes.
- Take Needle and thread. Take a paillette and put needle through it. Once the paillette is through, tie a knot. You do this with every paillette, 1 inch apart from eachother.
- Make it as long as you want, when your a done, tie a knot at the end.
