Five Classic Gal Gifts // Giveaway

[Giveaway has ended. For results, please scroll to the end of this post.]

Hey Hey! It’ my birthday! I thought I would celebrate by giving one of my followers a gift! But here is the fun part, you get to “Pick Your Own Gift(away)!” See what I did there? 

I really like to receive and give gifts. Whether it’s a dinner or brunch date or a card with thoughtful words, it is just nice to be thought of on your birthday or any day. Some of my favorite gifts have been jewelry from my husband; he most recently got me a ring with Isaac’s birthstone. I also have loved my Keurig coffee maker, Dolce & Gabanna sunglasses, and my Tretorn rain boots…all things that I thought were to extravagant too buy for myself. As much as I’ve enjoyed those, some of the more classic gifts are the things have become staples in my life.

I’ve realized that giving gifts you love yourself is the best way to go. So if I’ve used, loved, and repurchased a gift, I figure, others would enjoy too. It doesn’t have to be expensive to be quality. While there are many more items I love to gift, here are FIVE CLASSIC GAL GIFTS. Which one would you choose?

Five Classic Gal Gifts

ONE. Bath & Body Hand Soap Lotion in Eucaplyputs Speariment
The luxorious smell and feel of these products has had them sitting side by side in our bathroom for over 5 years. You can often find them on sale, which is when I buy them in bulk. I have purchased many of the products in this line including the candles, but these are my two favorites. (Values: $5.50 and $13.00)

TWO. Vera Bradley Medium Cosmetic Bag
I have to admit it took me many years to jump on the Vera band wagon. I am just not a floral purse kinda girl. But, I received a cosmetic bag and after 18 months it is still in great shape. I have given solid fabrics and floral to a few of my lady family members. (Value: $26 or less depending on pattern) 

THREE. Clinique Long Last Glosswear
Though I have tried to be, I am just not a lipstick girl. I do love some lip gloss, though. I think Whisper (shown) is a great everyday gloss and works with different skin and clothing colorings. I save a pop of pink for being a little fancy. (Choose your shade, $15 value)

FOUR. Crate & Barrel Eliza Picture Frames 
I love the simple lines on these frames. They are heavy but elegant. Classic. They’ve seemed to multiple on my mantle…whoops. A picture frame with a personal picture or encouraging quote is a great way to give a sentimental gift. (Shown: 5X7 and 4X6, values $14.95 and $9.95)

FIVE. iTunes Gift Card
The gift of music is one that just keeps on giving! This ia great gift to personalize and send in the mail or grab on the way to a party. Everyone likes music, right? (Value $20)

Whatdaya think? Will you add some of these your classic gifts list?

5 Favorite Things… Blog Launch Giveaway!

I am super pumped to launch my new little blog into the world. So, what better way to celebrate than share some free stuff with my friends?! FREE STUFF, people. I love free stuff. You’re welcome.

Today, I’ll share some things that I love and YOU CAN HAVE THEM ALL! (Well, one of you can have them all.) If you know me much at all, you know that I have a love for organization and effective systems. My goal is not to over-structure life, but to bring effectiveness to work and home. Organization saves time, and that is time I can spend with my family and friends. In addition, if I can make those systems beautiful and colorful that is a total winner-winner-chicken-dinner in my book.

Here are 5 FAVORITE THINGS…. 

5things1 with numbers on

1. Large Notecards
A great multi-purpose item. I love them because they are sturdy, a great size and lined on one side. I often use them as bin labels, errand list, or honey-do list.

2. Mulit-colored Fine Point Sharpies
Adding a little color to my work and planning just makes me happy. I love to have a plethera of colors to choose from. Yes, I carry about 12 in my purse at all times. Don’t hate.

3. Over-sized Paperclips
Colorful, functional, and big. What is not to love? These clips are super strong and the colors jump out of a pile of papers.

4. Over-sized Notepads
Love to use these for large sticky post-its for notes and lists. I rarely can fit anything on the small square ones. Plus, these catch my husband’s attention before he walks out the door = worth a fortune!

5. Washi Tape
As I said yesterday this is my new obsession! Colorful addition to projects and decor. So many options… I dare you to search “Washi tape” on Pinterest.

…and I am throwing in a pretty desk organizer too. Can’t have 5 Favorite Things just laying around.
