Beauty Gift Ideas for any Budget

Just when you thought I was done with the gift guides, I had to bring out another… 😉 This one is for all the beauty product lovers out there, like myself. So I put together some of what I think our great gift ideas for anyone’s budget. I’m sharing some of my favorite items and brands with a few things that are on my own wish list this season. I didn’t want to just throw a few products together that just looked good, I put together items that I know are great products for a great deal. 🙂

For the holidays I like to give gifts to friends and family that they wouldn’t necessarily buy for themselves. Great beauty products can be very pricey, but luckily around the holidays there are lots of smaller sized gift versions of great products. Those make fun little gifts without spending a fortune.

Also, I should tell you that quite a few of these items are on SALE!

Most of these products are from ULTA or Nordstroms with fast shipping, and some of them can be found in stores. Norstroms has free shipping while with ULTA if you spend over $50.00 shipping is free. But really, we’re not too far out of the regular shipping window so almost all of these should arrive in time for Christmas!

I did my gift ideas for the ladies a couple weeks back, so I thought it was time for a post all about the men. Here is my gift ideas for him for Christmas 2017! In my opinion men are the toughest people to buy for. I’ve always struggled to find the perfect present for my dad and brother, and now I have the same problem with my husband.

I wanted to make a good balance of interests from technology, music, grooming, and well…beer drinking Everything pictured is linked below with the price.

1. Amazon Fire Stick-We have one and I love it!! I highly recommend it! This goes for $39.99

FREE printable for Toddlers- “All About ME”

Happy Tuesday!!

Today’s post is going to be a short one, but one I have been wanting to do for some time now. It is a free printable worksheet all about your toddler. Did I mention it’s FREE! 🙂

I am a complete hoarder, when it comes to my daughter. I keep all her pictures, her drawings, I love to save it all!  They grow so fast, so everything little thing becomes so special. I think the toddler phase, might be my favorite stage so far. They have no filter, they’re dramatic, and they are so cute all at the same time. So I wanted to make something I could have to document everything about about this age. From favorite foods, to all the funny things they say. So I made this printable, for all the mommy’s out there to have as a keepsake. It has everything to really capture your kiddo from all the things they love, funny things they say, to even a place to put their hand prints. I think it’s something that will be really fun to look back on one day and have a laugh.

I got his ideas from back when I taught kindergarten. I loved doing these types of worksheets with my students, so I wanted to make one that was more appropriate for a two year old. I love that I can add this to her scrapbook or even laminate it and give them as gifts for the grandparents. 🙂

 

Hope you enjoyed!! Thanks for stopping by!!

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Happy Wednesday!!

As Mother’s day quickly approaches I wanted to put together some cute gift ideas, for all the mom’s out there. Now that I am a mom myself, mother’s day has taking on a whole new meaning. Typically I would love to do a bunch of fun things with my family on that day, but this year all I truly want is a long, and relaxing… nap. 🙂 I know I am not alone with this, I think all the mommies out there know how valuable sleep becomes after you have a children. So any added gifts that day will be icing on the cake.

In my little gift guide, I included some sentimental pieces, as well as some fun girlie gift ideas. I included my favorites from makeup, perfume, and an engravable charm that I bought for both my mother and mother in-law. I’m also very partial to the James Avery initial ring because I have it with my daughter’s initial “M” and I wear it everyday. 🙂

 Enough rambling, onto more important things, the shopping

1.Rose Gold Glitter Phone Case
