galentines day ideas

Oh my goodness, Valentine’s Day is only a week away and I’m so excited! I love love love this special day not because I like to eat pounds of chocolate (but I do), mostly because I absolutely adore the color pink and giving little gifts to my girl friends. I’m usually a pretty creative person and my favorite things to pick out are themed gifts. For this blog post, I came up with three gifts you’ll love to give to your gal pals!

Coffee themed gift

I’m a coffee lover and anyone who gets me a cute mug is automatically my favorite person. Coffee isn’t just something you sip at your desk, it’s a ritual in many cultures, something to be savored. I can totally get on board with that! My coffee ritual would include a little journaling and a delicious smelling candle like the cute pineapple one above!

Mani-Pedi gift

Who doesn’t love a fresh manicure every once in awhile? Painting nails can be really relaxing for some people including me, that is until I end up screwing them up by smudging an almost dry nail. Such is life, right? This bright red Essie nail polish is perfect for Valentine’s Day. Include a little nail kit and some hand cream and you have an adorable Galentine’s gift!

Baking lover’s gift

Some people just really love to bake. I wish I were one of those people. Unfortunately, I’m more of the ‘place and bake’ cookie kind of gal. For the special friend in your life who loves to throw on an apron, cookie cutters and sprinkles make the best gifts! And can we talk about how cute that dish towel is? It goes so perfectly with the whole theme!

If you find yourself going to a Galentine’s day party, don’t show up empty handed! Create a thoughtful gift that any gal pal would be excited to receive. Enjoy!

valentines gift ideas

Only a few more weeks until Valentine’s Day! Most of us girls get excited for this special day (unless you’re my mom who’s too practical for all of it.) I wrote this post specifically for you gals to share with your guys. It serves as a little “guidance” for them so they have a few ideas of what Valentine’s gift to get you. We all love the flowers and chocolate that’s a traditional part of the season, but in recent years men, including my boyfriend, have upped the ante a little.

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Last Year, David got me a really cute Kate Spade bag for Valentine’s Day and then took me out to dinner! While not every guy is going to want to put down the cash for a designer hand bag, he knows I’m a fashion blogger and that Kate Spade is my favorite brand ever. In my gift guide, I’ve included gift ideas in a variety of price ranges for however big your Valentine’s Day will be!Β Remember to send your man the link to your favorite item!

valentines gifts for guys

Can you guys believe that January is almost over? I’m literally still taking down Christmas decorations (don’t judge me) and now I’m thinking about putting up Valentine’s decorations. I love Valentine’s for so many reasons and most of them include all the pink and red things everywhere! Of course, a girl loves flowers and chocolate on this holiday, and I’m not exception to that. Sometimes I think that our boyfriends and husbands get forgotten on this day. It seems to be all about the ladies instead. I’ve come up with a Valentine’s gift list for guys to share with you today!

What to Get Your Guy for Valentine’s Day

My boyfriend, David, got me a really cute Kate Spade canvas bag last year for Valentine’s Day and I absolutely loved it! This year, I wanted to get him something nice. While I’m still not sure what I’m going to get him this year, but I have a few ideas. Hopefully, my handy Valentine’s gift guide will give you some ideas as well!

For David, I’d love to buy him a pair of Lucchese cowboy boots (they’re pricey!) He’s a true Texan and frankly, I never thought I’d be into a guy who wore something besides boat shoes but he proved me wrong. I love his cowboy boots now!

I’ve chosen Valentine’s gifts in a variety of price ranges to fit every budget! Also, be on the lookout for my galentine’s day gift guide for your besties! I have a few fun gift ideas to share with you and I’m excited! Enjoy your day loves!

christmas gift ideas

It’s the last Monday before Christmas and I’m getting excited! There’s just something beautiful and happy about this season and I wish I could bottle it up and carry it with me throughout the rest of the year!Β One of my favorite things to do during the week before Christmas is hit the stores to do some last minute shopping. It’s completely chaotic but that’s what makes it so fun.

I’ve done pretty much all of my shopping but one of the hardest things to find are good stocking stuffers! My mom, ahem, Santa I mean, used to give my sister and I cans of silly string and tell us to go at it. Usually, we ended up just going after my dad because it was way more fun! Anyway, I’ve included a few fun stocking stuffers to spark your creativity.

Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Women

Some of my favorite things I’ve gotten in my stocking in Christmases past (besides silly string) are nail polish, fuzzy socks, chocolate Santas, mittens, lip balm, and oddly, a whoopie cushion. Trust me, that provides hours of entertainment and laughs for the whole family! Here are a few other great ideas for a gal pal on your list! Scroll through to find your favorites and be sure to share your stocking stuffer ideas in a comment below!


gift ideas for women

Hey girls! I hope your week is going well! Let’s just say I’m glad it’s finally Wednesday. This time of the year just wears me out. Between keeping up with this blog, staying on top of things at work, and trying to get all my decorating done, I get overwhelmed! One of the things that seems to take up a lot of time every Christmas season is figuring out what to get people on my Christmas gift list. I have my own personal tastes and things that I like to give and get and honestly, it drives me crazy that not everyone will appreciate a scented candle!

For the coffee lover in your life, here’s a handy gift guide with fun gifts to give! Coffee is something I can’t live without. My mornings are simply not complete without a little caffeine in my cup! Recently, I bought myself a Christmas Kate Spade travel mug (pictured above) and while simple, it’s the cutest thing! It’s my favorite thing on this list too. Anyway, get to shoppin’ everyone! Enjoy this simple and sweet Christmas gift guide!Β

Happy Monday lovelies! I hope you’ve recovered from your crazy Thanksgiving festivities and are on the mend. My Thanksgiving was quite busy in San Antonio; David and I spent it with his family and friends. Frankly, I’m still stuffed from all of the food! I think I had about five plates of turkey and stuffing by the end of the day. No regrets! This season is so wonderful for yummy treats but so terrible for my waistline.

Since Christmas is now in full swing, I went and browsed the Target dollar section to see what holiday goodies I could find and I wasn’t disappointed! They had cute Christmas salt and pepper shakers, wrapping paper, snow globe place cards, hats and mittens, and plenty of glittery items! I bought Christmas themed dish towels (with Christmas trees on them, of course) and this adorable pink Christmas tree I wanted to share with you guys!

cute christmas trees

You’ll never guess how much it cost! It was $3! You don’t even know how excited I am about something so small and simple. The ornaments were also $3 for the whole box. The Target dollar spot is my favorite place to find fun little decorative items like this for cheap. I think we can all relate to how hard it is to go into the store just needing one thing and not come out with an additional $50 worth of stuff. The struggle is real!

Where will I be putting my new pink tree? On my desk at work of course! I like to add a little merriment wherever I go. Hopefully no one in the office will mind all of the glitter that follows! Anyway, tell me about your recent Target dollar section finds in the comments! I love to see what other Targets have in their dollar spots!
