Hello LDV readers! It’s Katie again from Blueprint Modern. When trying to decide the theme of my December edit of Wrapped Up, I found it hard to focus. How do you include gift ideas for everyone on your list in one post? So I decided to give myself a monetary limit of $50 – a price point that allows you to spoil the nicest on your list while still providing ideas for the obligatory gifts for coworkers, a hostess, or white elephant parties. These are my favorite finds. I hope you all get spoiled and have the happiest of holidays!
Hi, everyone! Katie here from Blueprint Modern with another installment of Wrapped Up. Books are one of my most favorite go-to gifts. You have probably noticed me incorporate them in my other Wrapped Up segments. Whether shopping for a family or a child, a best friend or acquaintance, or a hostess gift or a thank you present, books are an easily-accessible but thoughtful token. They can serve as a bridge for something you love and want to share, or as an acknowledgment of something you know your recipient loves. And often, they are so pretty they can be like works of art. Below are some of my current favorites to give (or receive).
Hello again! Katie from Blueprint Modern here with another edition of “Wrapped Up.” Inspired by my three, ever-loyal pets, this month’s edition of Wrapped Up is all about spoiling your four-legged children. Whether you gift your own canine or feline with Christmas and Birthday presents or bring something extra to your party host, I think it’s always fun to acknowledge the “other” household members. And I’m certain they will show you their gratitude in return.
They say the best houseguests never arrive empty handed, and while your best intentions are to show up with a thoughtful and personalized gift every visit, time might not always be on your side. For those last-minute, I forgot-to-grab-a-hostess-gift needs, I say, “Thank God for wine and liquor.” See the rest of my gift ideas for your summer hostess below and for more inspired offerings follow my series, Wrapped Up.
