DIY Pedicure Gift Basket Featuring the Original Pedi-Sox®+ Giveaway

The holidays are fast approaching and with that comes the scramble for gift ideas. Some people are genuinely difficult to shop for. They seem to have everything and it's hard to find the gift that "fits". My suggestion when that happens is the gift basket. It seems a simple solution, but it can pack a holiday punch. All it takes is a basket, a few themed items, and some creativity. The best part is that the thought behind them are sure to make the recipient feel special. A DIY pedicure gift basket makes a fantastic gift for the women in your life. Treat your sister, Mom, cousin, friend, co-worker, whoever, to a little pampering. Putting together the basket is pretty easy - and affordable, too! You can easily make a few of these baskets without breaking the bank. Of course, you can add different touches to each to personalize them for each individual. I started my gift off with a dark brown basket. You can start yours with a basket or any style of container. There are some … [Read more...]

New Gift Guide Additions – Chapstick and PEEPS

2014 Holiday Gift Guide Stocking Stuffers Featured Product! See the rest of the 2014 Holiday Gift Guide here! I've always loved finding fun things to stuff in stockings. I personally think it should be a good mix of candy or treats and useful things like a hat or gloves. I was sent Chapstick in Candy Cane and the new ChapStick Mixstix Vanilla Candy Cane Milkshake which is vanilla on one side and candy cane on the other. Wear either or mix them, whatever flavor you feel like. ChapStick has long been an addition to stockings around here. Iowa winters are pretty harsh and very dry, especially on your lips. ChapStick helps keep your lips moisturized without feeling greasy. The new flavors are festive and fun! Mixstix also come in Lemon Berry Sorbet and Strawberry Banana Smoothie. Snag a few to stuff in stockings this year! Want to connect with ChapStick? Follow the links below!

Minted.com + You = Holidays

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are those of the reviewer and honest in nature. I've always wanted to send out Christmas cards. I always thought it was cool to get them in the mail when I was younger. Jake's almost 18 and we've sent out cards a grand total of...zero times!  I take most of the blame, I'm lazy and tend to procrastinate and then it's just too late to even consider sending out cards. To my defense, they used to be a lot harder to make and send out. The other reason I haven't is that I've always liked the cards that have a family photo on them and both Richard and Jake breathe fire at me when I try to take their pictures. Jake's perfectly fine with taking a million selfies, but a family photo? Nope, he wants nothing to do with it. Of course, you can do non-photo cards, but I never got around to those either. What can I say? We're just … [Read more...]
