Some people like the traditional flowers and chocolate gifts, which is completely fine if that is what you prefer, but sometimes changing things up is a pleasant surprise!
This year for Valentines, I will give you a couple of ideas, and the supplies you will need, to make your special someone happy!
First and foremost, you must know a little about that special person you are buying your gift for. In this case, their favorite wine, or alcoholic beverage (a non-alcoholic beverage works as well), and their favorite restaurants are needed. You will need a string (or something you can use to attach the gift card to the restaurant) to tie on the bottle itself, and a permanent marker to write a special note on the card.
And that’s it (You might want to make your own card with a sweet little note as well and place the gift card inside that card if you prefer). Literally SUPER easy, effective, and you get a date-night out of the deal as well at their favorite restaurant! 🙂
Have you ever wanted to give someone a great, and meaningful gift, but you realized when you opened your bank account, that you didn’t have that much money to spend?
I am here to show you how I made our simple Christmas gifts for our family members.
What you will need:
⊗ An 8 X 10 picture frame
⊗ A printed picture (I actually took them to WalMart to get printed)
I actually bought a lot of frames that were 60% off, making them just $3.99! I got the pictures printed for $1.50 each, the tule cost $1.00, and the scissors I used were mine from home, making the total cost around $6.50/each! Score!!
For a little bonus I picked frames that you could write on with permanent marker, and wrote a sweet little personal note on the top corner of each frame! 🙂
When throwing a party, you must always have that ONE thing that stands out. This being only the second get together at our new house, I tried to think outside the box on what people might like to enjoy. I came up with a DIY photo booth.
What you need:
∴ Wrapping Paper
∴ Decorations (I used hanging stars, and ornaments from Christmas)
∴ Photo Booth Props
∴ Last but not least, a camera and a tripod
I literally measured out two sections of my wall and rolled the wrapping paper all the way down. Then I taped it, and rolled the second section all the way down the wall, cut off the excess paper and taped it. I then taped the streamers and ornaments to the paper, and called it a DIY photo booth!
I seriously thought this Christmas, was one of the best ones yet. We finally got to combine BOTH of our families, in the same day! WHAT? It is SO hard to try to combine family holidays, because of scheduling, traveling, activities, presents, etc., but it happened!
The pictures will speak for themselves, but I truly hope to do that again! And Shane and I hosted our first big holiday at our new house for my family, which was awesome! First major holiday gathering is now in the books, and we can’t wait for the next one! 🙂
