Best Gift Ideas

  It's that time of the year again, we get to spend our hard earned money on our loved ones.  

I know some people get really stressed out about the shopping, and I have to admit that I do too.  I want to get the perfect gift like there is such a thing.  But I really love the opportunity to spoil the people in my world and the best way to do that at this time of year is to shop.

I also have to admit that the whole “retail therapy” aspect of things is really a large part of the process too.  I grew up in a house where my parents were very vocal about spending money and what to spend it on and what not too.  We were made painfully aware of how expensive we were to just eat and live in our house so I have grown up with what I think is a respect for my spending habits.  On the other hand, if I could spend a whole bucket load of cash on someone, I would.  We have tried over the years to save up money so that we could spend at this time of year, but as we all know, that never goes completely as planned.


This year, however, I have a few opportunities to spend where I hadn’t before.  And, I am trying to be fun and practical at the same time.  ThirtyOne has been that answer for me this year.  Without giving away any actual gift secrets, let me share a few of my favorite things that may just arrive under the tree in our house.

There is a large trend toward personalized items.  Things with inspirations, and messages. ThirtyOne is all over that, most of their items are personalizable.  

For instance these great pillows.  You can order them empty, just the cover, or include the pillow.  There are two sizes and the level of personalization is enormous.

My next item will likely be a cinch sac or two.  These are so cute, with so many patterns available and totally personalizable. And they are cheap.


The last item is the little carry-all caddy.  I have to admit, I have quite the collection already.  But the ones holiday-gift-guide-graphic-3-fall-winter-2016that I love right now are the Christmas patterns.  Little Santa pants, reindeer, and red with polka dots.  They hide my box of tissues but we have found so many uses for them.


So, please spend a little time doing some retail therapy with us here at and buy some super cute, practical things for you and your fam.
