I wanted to quickly check in with you guys today with a really easy, fun gift giving formula. I’ve found over the years that it’s really fun to put together little themed kits as gifts and that it makes the gift ideation process a lot quicker and easier. Plus, people love receiving these ‘kits’ because they’re getting a bunch of smaller items to open.
This past weekend, my friend and I did our gift exchange and we have a ton in common and very similar taste, so she really wasn’t difficult to shop for, but because we have such similar taste, it was kind of hard to narrow down all the options that would’ve worked.
We’re both big readers and she had mentioned recently that she was in the market for a new winter blanket, so I decided to create a ‘cozy reading kit’. I ended up including a super soft, furry blanket, a Christmas mug (both found at HomeGoods), and one of my favorite books, “The Little Book of Hygge” which is appropriately all about being cozy. I also tossed in some Hershey’s kisses and a candy cane for good measure.
Another kit I’m working on is for my eight year old nephew who just recently got into Harry Potter, much to my excitement because I’ve been waiting his entire life for this moment. So, I’m going to make him a little kit with a copy of The Prisoner of Azkaban, some Harry Potter candy like chocolate frogs and Bertie Botts’ jelly beans (because what little boy doesn’t love that?), and a personalized Hogwarts admissions letter.
So yeah, if you still have some loved ones on your list and you’re unsure where to start when shopping, think about what you know about them and their taste and pick a theme to build off of! They’re gonna love it and it’ll be so much fun for you to put together.
