Gift giving is one of my favorite things to do, especially when I’ve found something that has me excited for the recipient to open.
We’ve had a lot of special occasions the last few months that have had me running around town or scouring the internet in search of the perfect item(s), but there have been a few times where I have felt myself in a pinch resorting to purchasing something last minute that’s not quite as thoughtful as I would have liked.
We’ve all been there. Whenever I’m caught in a situation like this, I always think back to these monthly gift guides I used to do and think “I need to pick that series back up!” Because occasions present themselves all year long to love on others with gifts (birthdays, anniversaries, pick-me-ups, thank yous, etc. etc. etc.), I’ve decided to bring back this little light-hearted series through the end of the year, and hopefully into the next!
So without further adieu, here are a handful of random gift ideas that I hope inspire a gift you are excited to give in the near future.
JUNE GIFT GUIDE
Dremel GO-01 Powered Cordless Electric Screwdriver ($39.97): Because this thing looks stinkin’ handy and something I know Jamie and I would love to have around the house.
This Is How We Do It: One Day in the Lives of Seven Kids from around the World ($14.44): Because I’ve heard great things about this book and have had it in my own Amazon wish list for a while to grab for my girls one of these days.
Dyson V11 Torque Drive Cordless Vacuum Cleaner, Blue ($645.00): Because my sister Jennifer just got this vacuum and she said that it’s beyond fabulous. She can’t stop looking for things to clean! Ha. This would be such a great (big!) gift for something who could use it.
Portable Soccer Goal ($14.99): Because this is something that is easily stored, unfolded, and set up for a quick pick-up game in the yard with family and friends. Hadley would love this because she loves anything that promotes quality time, especially if it’s outdoors.
Top Level Baby Infant Baseball Cap Hat – 100% Durable Sturdy Polyester Hat ($8.99): Because it’s just so cute on my nephew, and is available in 15+ colors.
Becoming a Supple Leopard 2nd Edition: The Ultimate Guide to Resolving Pain, Preventing Injury, and Optimizing Athletic Performance ($43.68): Because this book is gold for all things mobility (ask anyone who’s read it). It’s highly regarded, and for good reason.
TravelWise Packing Cube System – Durable 5 Piece Weekender+ Luggage Organizer Set ($24.99): Because your loved one has a big trip coming up but would likely never buy these packing cubes for themselves (they’ll thank you up and down later after finding them so handy!)
Disney Girls’ Frozen Nightgown ($19.48): Because you love a little girl who will smile so big the first time she twirls around in her new nightgown.
LifeAround2Angels Bath Bombs Gift Set of 12 US Made Fizzies ($26.80): Because this gift will be well received as a pick-me-up, birthday gift, or other special occasion where you want your recipient to know that she deserves a little pampering and time to herself.
WHAT DO YOU MEME? Party Game ($29.99): Because the 6k glowing reviews don’t lie! This would be an excellent gift for the person in your life with a knack for entertaining.
Starlight Baby Little Peach Bodysuit ($19.99): Because this is great gender-neutral gift and sure to evoke a lot of “aww”s from those at a baby shower.
Tall Unique Rectangle Ceramic Flower Vase, Small Bud Decorative Floral Vase ($34.85): Because fresh flowers and greenery have the ability to brighten any home and mood, and a vase like this will make the arrangement that much more beautiful (and the recipient’s smile that much bigger).
Do you hit a home run with any gifts lately? Maybe a Father’s Day gift?
Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to two little girls (ages 5 and 2) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
