Holiday Gift Giving Guide 2016


First off, I'd like to invite everyone to use this great deal off of Jewelry Bean's new and really awesome Hat & Scarf Collection. The collection is full of the most adorable Beanie Hats and the most snugly Blanket Scarfs, and more. Jewelry Bean and I have decided to collaborate together for the holidays, and they were nice enough to offer my followers this discount. I am not being paid for my endorsement of this company. I truly love their products, and we've worked together in the past and decided to get together again to share in the holiday spirit. Enjoy!


Secondly, the reason for this post was to do a Holiday Gift Guide. But I didn't want to do one with just a few of my "holiday must-haves" and call it a day, I really wanted to go in deep and discuss everything that, in my humble opinion, goes into being an awesome gift-giver! I also wanted to try out a new medium. I'm always sharing my opinions, likes, outfits, purchases, advice, etc. through writing, and I think I'm certainly an eloquent writer... definitely more so than I am a speaker... but you can't emote through the written word and I'm certainly a very expressive speaker so I wanted to give video blogging a try. Hence my new YouTube Chanel HERE and my series of videos for my Holiday Gift Giving Guide for 2016!

 I REALLY love this shop for Christmas and/or anniversary gifts! I bought my husband's 5th Wedding Anniversary card from this shop since they specialize in wooden items & wood is the traditional 5th wedding anniversary gift. You can check out the card I bought him on my Instagram: @mostly_maple

This is the absolute perfect place to buy those different "niche" gifts!
Including this... 


The last video, video eight...
is where I just want to also mention another shop The Silver Loft which sells handmade personalized/custom pieces that are truly one-of-a-kind. And that's where I'd like to leave off. The best advice I can give regarding gift-giving, is to be personalized. Whether you are actually buying something that is personally customized for the person you're buying for or not. You have to stop and think of the person you're buying for and get something that's truly meaningful TO THEM.
Shop SMARTER, not HARDER.
Good luck and have fun with your holiday shopping. I hope these videos help, and if I don't speak to you again until after, have a very Happy Holiday!!
