The other day, I made a post on the best kid’s gifts of 2013. Now I am about to give you the best adult-ish to teenage-ish gifts of 2013. These are some great gifts. Be prepared to love me . . . I mean, be prepared to love me for giving you these great, highly-recommended gifts . . . On second thought, let’s just say you need to be prepared to love these gift ideas, not me at all. There, all fixed.
This soap from Bath & Body Works is wonderful. Pear is my favorite, but it’s not my favorite . . . as in, not my favorite part about the soap. I love the container! It’s in a “Mason” jar! Could it get any cuter? No, not for a farmer. It totally re-did our bathroom. We have people coming in and saying, “Did you paint? Get a new sink?” We just reply saying, “No, it’s the soap.” It’ll do miracles. Put it in your bathroom and watch the exciting and magical bubbles happen.
Here’s another great B&BW gift: a set of the mini’s (one body lotion, one body splash, and one body soap). Place them all in a cute little box or gift tin and you’re good to go! This cute box is from Walmart.
Of course, how could a gift of soap be complete without a memory foam bath mat to go with it? These bath mats are the bomb, actually they are the cloud to your toes. Super soft and very pretty, we love these things. We love that every sense is being satisfied as we wash our hands – our eyes are adoring the mat, our nose is loving the pear smell, our toes have their heads in the clouds. Just don’t eat the soap, the bath mat, or anything else lovely in your bathroom. Your taste buds will not thank you.
I got this notebook from Ana at Sixty Second Street for christmas, but it can be given anytime of the year. I love the zip-lock pocket/book covering. It’s revolutionary! I stick my memory reminders in it, my pens, my stickers. It’s work great! I love it. Thanks a billion, Ana!
Clothes are another great gift giving idea. They can be tricky, though, with the thought of size, fit, and taste. This route should only be traveled down if you know the person well. If you do succeed, you could really please the gift receiver.
TIP: Just make sure you know the person’s size. It could be very embarrasing and humiliating, for you and the receiver, if you buy the person a size too big. Just in case, make sure to include a gift receipt if it either doesn’t fit the person or if they don’t like it.
For Christmas, I got a matching outfit of a shirt, scarf, and socks. It was a great gift, and I love the scarf! Scarves make a great gift: very rarely will you fail with gifting them. Buy a neutral scarf if you’re stuck, or one with patterns and colors that you see the person often wear.
Pajamas are always in demand in anyone’s wardrobe. For me, you can never have too many pajamas. You always have the coolest, warmest; comfiest, doesn’t fit right; too small, too big. Buy a comfy robe to go with a pair of cooler PJs and you have the perfect gift.
You want to see another behind the scenes?
Or, are you still recovering for the shock of the last post’s horror?
Well, this isn’t nearly as bad as yesterday.
We’ve got the boxes. No, I mean we’ve got THE boxes.
Oh, and that bag in the background is all wrapping paper. Yep.
