Why is gift giving so hard? I LOVE giving gifts but sometimes I struggle with WHAT to give. I typically don't like to give gift cards or something from a big box store. I usually like to give unique items or things from other small businesses. BUT searching for the perfect gift is time consuming and down right hard! So if that is you I'm here to help! I have compiled a few of my favorite gifts and or small business I like to shop from. Hope this helps you find thoughtful and unique gifts for those special people on your Christmas Gift this year!
First up...if you are local to the Gaston County area then you will defiantly want to check out one of my favorite boutiques. Mona's Gift and Boutique in downtown McAdenville. They have gifts for everyone! Grab a personalized tumbler for your niece or nephew, snag an ornament or Christmas serving dish for your secret santa, and pick up a cute shirt or beanie for yourself! Trust me, this gift shop is one to visit for sure!
Next...if you have boys ages 6-8 on your list then Beyblades are a must! My boys are obsessed! They will sit for hours having beyblade battles with each other. These are two beyblade items that are on their list this year.
Subscriptions....subscription boxes are all the rage right now BUT it's not something I would typically purchase for myself. However, if I were to be gifted one, I would be over the moon! Here are 3 subscriptions that I'm absolutely loving right now.
The Redheaded Camel's T-Shirt Club. I love this subscription because I rarely have time to shop for myself and I love cute t-shirts that I can dress up or wear casual! Her designs are super cute and the t-shirt quality is fantastic. With this subscription you will receive both seasonal shirts and every day shirts. You can't go wrong with gifting this to any lady on your list!
The Painted Pearl's Earring Subscription....this would make such an awesome gift! Who wouldn't love cute, stylish earrings to show up on their doorstep every month! I love accessories but often have a hard time making a decision. With this subscription the decision is made for you! You will receive both statement earrings and everyday earrings. It's a great way to beef up your earring collection without having to even step out of your house!
Busy Bee's Gift & Stationary Confetti Crate...this is the perfect subscription for anyone on your list who loves to host a good party. Each month you receive curated gifts, party items, houseware and a ton of other fun things. This subscription makes the perfect gift!
Now for all those teachers and neighbors on your list! I personally think our kitchen towels and minis make amazing gifts! They are great as individual gifts or if you want to be over the top you can always pair either item with a gift card or bottle of wine! Use BLACKFRIDAY for a discount!
For those hard to buy for men on your list, why are men so hard to buy for? Most of the men in my life desperately need "nice" t-shirts. So they will defiantly be receiving a few shirts from Grunt Style. We love this company because they support the men in blue and all those in uniform. Another item that the men in my life will be receiving is the Veterans BBQ Gift pack. Again this company is on our must have list because not only do they provide an amazing product but they support our troops. If your guy loves to grill and loves all things sauce and rubs then this would be a great gift!
And to close out our 2019 Christmas Gift Guide is probably one of my all time favorite kitchen items...the instant pot! If you don't have one....you need one and so does anyone on your Christmas list! It makes meal prep and last minute dinners so much easier! There isn't a week that goes by that I don't use my Instant Pot! It's a must have!
