Gifts For Your Pet

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

When we heard via the National Retail Federation that over $815 million dollars are spent on Valentine's Day gifts for pets we could kind of believe it because well, who doesn't like to spoil their pet(s)?! Pets are so easy to please that the possibilities are endless when it comes to the perfect Valentine's Day gift for them. They say the best way to a man's heart is through their stomach; the same applies to animals! Greenies is a nice treat for your dog, shaped like a toothbrush it fights tartar while being a tasty treat. Other great gifts include:

-A bed
-Booties for dogs, claw protectors for cats
-Kong (for dogs)
-Hanging mouse for cats
-A cozy blanket

What will you be buying your pet for Valentine's Day? We want to hear more suggestions so share with us below!

Gifts For Him

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9

Yesterday, we shared a 'Gifts For Her' guide for all of our fellas, so today we are sharing a Valentine's Day 'Gifts For Him' guide for all you ladies (and gents) looking for a gift for your significant other. It's the little things that count with men we have found. Letting a guy know how proud you are to have someone like them in your life is a wonderful exchange of love. But, if you want to treat your man to a gift to show your love then shop our gift guide for him above! With men, it's all about simplicity and practicality. A trendy and sleek sunglasses or watch is never a bad thing as they can never have too many of those. Personalization is always a nice way to show a little extra care and creativity in a gift, which is why we absolutely loved the personalized Moscow Mule Mug from Nordies (Nordstrom)! See something missing from our list? Send us a comment below with your favorites.

Happy shopping for him!

How To Save Money While Shopping Over the Holidays

Okay, so you missed Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, but you still want to save money on your holiday shopping. Or you participate in all three but you're still looking to save. We have the answer for you: choose thoughtful gifts rather than popular gifts. Some of the most meaningful gifts we have received have been the ones that came from the heart. Here are some cost-saving gifts sure to make the receiver smile:

Personalized Phone Case

For most people, their phones are attached to their hip (or palm of your hand)! A thoughtful reminder of something special on your phone is a priceless gift. Zazzle is great at making custom phone cases and they offer tons of coupons to ease the pain at checkout. You can find many of their discounts via RetailMeNot.

A Framed Picture

A framed quote or picture to hang up in someone's wall or better is truly an amazing gift. IKEA sells beautiful and cheap white and black picture frames, perfect for an art gallery wall. Create a quote on Microsoft Word or Photoshop, print it, and place it in a frame. Wrap it up (check out our 5 Easy & Cute Ways To Gift Wrap This Holiday for wrapping tips)! Either that, or go to Walgreens and print out a nice picture.

P.s. Consider even making a poster size picture! IKEA has frames big enough for that.

A Scrapbook

Nothing is better than reliving a moment in pictures. With places like Facebook and Instagram storing our pictures, it shouldn't be hard to pull them. Even consider using companies like Groovebook who can turn all of your photos online into a photo album!

A Video Montage

A video scrapbook is even cooler! If you have a MacBook use iMovie and create your own video that you can fill with thoughtful music and pictures!

A Candle

You can't go wrong with gifting someone with a candle. Everyone has a place in their home that could use some good aromas. Candles are a great investment. Check out our Favorite Holiday Candle Scents from Bath and Body Works for some ideas!

Assorted Gift Basket of Favorites

A bunch of tiny gifts can look like a nice big gift! Throw in a movie, socks, nail polish, candy and/or cookies, lipstick/lip know, essentials and place them in a nice basket (which you can find at Dollar Tree, Michaels, JoAnns, or 99cents Store). Tie it with cellophane and you've got an awesome gift.

Happy saving and gifting!

Get creative this year using things around your home like cardboard boxes, feathers, tulle, ribbon, scrapbook paper, and the list goes on! Paper Source and Michael's are our absolute favorite places to shop for unique paper and craft items. Above we have chosen some of our favorite gift wrapping looks.

How to Tie the {Perfect} Bow!

We have been getting tons of requests on how to tie the perfect bow so we thought we would make an easy step-by-step tutorial on how to tie the perfect bow on your gifts!  One thing to keep in mind when tying a bow is it requires more ribbon than you would think so make sure you have enough ribbon!

Step 1: Measure
Place your left thumb on the bottom of the gift, place the ribbon across the box and use your index finger at the top. **Important Step** Slide your your right index finger to the bottom of the box to add more ribbon towards the bottom, place your left thumb at the bottom of the box again.

Step 2: Wrap-Around
Keep your left thumb on the bottom of the box and wrap the top ribbon around the box.

Step 3: The Placement of the Bow
After wrapping around the ribbon around the box, place the top of the ribbon (the one in your right hand) to the center where you would like the bow to be.

Step 4: Wrap-Around #2
Flip over the top ribbon (the one in your right hand) across to wrap around the box horizontally.

Step 5: The Tuck & The Knot
After you wrap around and come back to the center of your gift, bring the top ribbon that is in your right hand under the horizontal and vertical ribbon to create a knot.

Step 6: The Bow!
Use the bottom and top ribbon in your left and right hand to create your perfect bow!

Happy Wrapping!
