7 Favorite Gift Ideas

November 25, 2014 by Leave a Comment

I am totally excited to host this years Thanksgiving feast. My heart is ready to be warmed by words of gratitude shared around the table on Thursday.  And then,

Christmas Shopping Begins!


The key to a relaxing December is getting as much crossed off of your Christmas To Do list the last week in November! To help you get the gift-giving juices flowing, I wanted to share my 7 Favorite Gift Ideas.


7 Favorite Gift Ideas –

All at a one-stop Holiday Workshop!

Office DEPOT. OfficeMax.

1. Personalized photo cards are perfect gifts for everyone — from your best friend to the great aunt you’ve only seen twice in your life.

2. For close family and friends, create one-of-a kind gifts such as personal calendars or other photo gifts, such as personalized smartphone cases, tablet covers, ornaments.

3. Make a Chippy Photo Frame with this simple tutorial. I love that this frame makes it easy to switch pics often. I like having my pictures developed at my nearby Office Depot.

4. My kids love seeing life size pictures of themselves. I’m getting poster sized pics of each of them for their rooms as a special treat for under the tree.

5. A girl can never have enough craft supplies — markers, paper cutters, Pre-Inked Round Stamp, and my favorite, a laminate machine — you can see some of my project ideas.

6. Men love electronics — a new notebook, the latest smart phone, or a laptop is a sure hit!

7. And for that picky loved one, a gift card! For a creative way to wrap the card, check out the ultimate guide for giving gift cards?

If your busy from morning to night, shop online during your brief breaks and have the gifts shipped to you or directly to your loved one. Office Depot and OfficeMax are making holiday shopping a little easier with online store pickup and free shipping with $50 purchase. This is available from Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday (December 1.)
