Give a Gift They’ll Really Love

Don’t wait until the last minute to do your gift shopping, especially when you’re on a budget. Here are a few ideas to help you out:

For your leading lady: 

Kate Spade Tumbler
With a multitude of patterns and colors, you can keep their drinks cold and stylish!

Cupid Bath Bomb 
A blend of rose and bergamot will fizz away the stress of the day as it melts in warm bath water.

If she loves foliage around the house, this is a great gift for her! A fully functional plant resides in the amethyst and only needs a little water and a little sunlight once a week to thrive. There are a variety of plants and colors available.


For your #ManCrushMonday:

Tile Finder
Never lose your keys again! You can attach the tile to just about anything, and when you don’t know where you’ve left it, use the Tile App to locate it.

For the little ones:

Eyes wides and hearts aglow, these sparklers are sure to keep the little ones involved in the festivities.
