Gift Basket Ideas {Blogmas Day 14}

Hi Guys!

Today i’m sharing a few different gift basket ideas i have found, that i think are pretty cool! I love gift baskets, because they look so fancy, yet they are super easy to make. You could even make some gift baskets with all things from the dollar store, which makes them super affordable gifts!

So without further ado, here are some different gift basket ideas…

Hot Chocolate Gift Basket – This one, which i found on DIY Network, is super cute!

Ice Cream Sundae – This one from, Smashed Peas and Carrots, looks really fun!

My Wish List {Blogmas Day 12}

Hi Guys!

For day 12 of Blogmas, i’m sharing what’s on my wish list this Christmas. My kids and husband have been asking me over and over what i want for Christmas, and it’s always difficult for me to come up with things.

My husband and I buy what we need throughout the year, and when it comes to Christmas we usually only buy each other 1-2 things so that way we each have a least something to unwrap.

So you will see my wish list is short and i’m more of a practical gift giver, so there’s not really anything fun on my list. But i thought i would share anyways in case someone is needing some ideas.

my wish list

So without further ado here is my wish list this year…

  1. 2019 Planner – I really loved using my happy planner this year, it’s so useful!

61i7-xWMWrL._SL1000_

2.  Pens – I love these pens so much, and use them daily.

3. Bullet Journal – I bought one last year, but would love to start fresh with a new one in 2019.

81vGXoGUp0L._SL1500_

4. Lettering and Modern Calligraphy – I really want to get better at handwriting and i think doing something like this would help and also be fun at the same time.

5. Tea Infuser – I shared this the other day in my Quirky Gifts idea post, and i really want one. My husband and i have been drinking more tea lately, that i think this would be a  fun addition to tea time.

71aHW8hbRVL._SL1500_

That’s all on my wish list this year, i know it’s mostly boring office products, but that’s what i like.

What’s on your wish list this year?

Quirky Gifts {Blogmas Day 10}

Hi Guys!

Today i’m sharing some quirky gifts people would actually want to receive…

quirky gifts

If you are looking for a fun, or unusual gift for that special person in your life, then look no further.

First on my list is for the chef in your life – the Foodie Dice Game

71wAlUNuGXL._SY500_

“A fun new way to shake up your cooking routine, Foodie Dice provides inspiration for creating simple, seasonal meals. Simply select the five primary dice, add a seasonal veggie die and roll. Then shop, cook, and eat! Over 186,000 possible meal combinations to inspire creativity in the kitchen.”

This really looks like it would be a lot of fun, especially if you like the tv show Chopped, that’s kind of what this reminds me of.

Up next is for the puzzle master in your life – Gradient Puzzles

41CAEnqTg9L._SL1024_

These look like they would be super tricky, but fun at the same time! Who doesn’t like a good challenge?!

The next gift idea is for the traveler in your life – Scratch Off Map 

71NzPLZb1JL._SL1040_

This would even be a great gift idea for a homeschooler who is studying the united states (or world) and they can scratch off as they learn. Amazon has a lot of different ones, but i really liked this watercolor one! It’s so pretty!

Up next, is this fun gift for any tea drinker in your life – Loch Ness Monster Tea Infuser

71aHW8hbRVL._SL1500_

This is really cute, and sure to make tea time more fun!

Last but not least, here is a really special gift, in my opinion – Letters to My Future Self

41gIaIiTHHL._SY321_BO1,204,203,200_

“Letters to My Future Self invites you to keep in touch with your past, present, and future selves. What would you like to share with the “future you”?

Each letter is printed with a unique prompt like:

  • These are my roots…
  • All the things I’d like to try someday…
  • I promise myself…

Fill these 12 paper time capsules with your own words, postdate, and seal up the envelopes with the included stickers.

In the years to come, break the seals to remember who you once were, contemplate who you are now, and envision your future self.”

How fun would that be to go back and read what you wrote? Such a cool idea.

That’s it for my quirky gift list. Which gift did you like best?

Gift Ideas for Homeschoolers {Blogmas Day 5}

Today I thought I would share some gift ideas for homeschoolers. In case you aren’t a homeschooler yourself and you need some ideas on what to get a homeschooler in your life, OR maybe you are a homeschooler and someone needs an idea on what to get you and you’re having a hard time coming up with some ideas to share with them, then this gift guide is for you.

gift ideas for homeschoolers

So without further ado, here are some ideas for the homeschoolers in your life…

  1. Subscription services –  Tinker Crates, Letters From Afar, Magazines (National Geographic is a great one!), etc. This is the gift that keeps on giving!
  2. Books – I’ve never met a homeschooler that doesn’t like/need books. We are constantly buying books. Some great book ideas for homeschooling moms are: Homeschool Mom’s Bible, Teaching From Rest, and The Unhurried Homeschooler.
  3. SuppliesPens, Pencils, Markers, Scissors, etc. We go through a lot of supplies!
  4. Memberships – Zoo, Aquarium, Museums, etc.
  5. Tickets – Plays, concerts, sporting events, etc.
  6. Gift Certificates – Amazon, bookstores, Starbucks, etc. If you aren’t sure what they have, this is a great gift, so they can buy what they want/need.

I hope you find this list helpful.

Sam’s 13th Birthday

Earlier this month my oldest child, Samuel, turned 13 years old. It’s really hard to believe i have a teenager now.

IMG_4183

He loves Nerf guns, so he requested a Nerf gun themed party.

IMG_4182

We bought him a metal detector because he has been wanting one for awhile now, and since we now have the land we thought it was the perfect time.

He is such an awesome kid, i’m so glad God chose me to be his mama!
