 Personalized Gifts Under $25

If you haven’t notice, I love gifts! My favorite gifts to receive and give are personalized gifts!

My favorite part of the gift giving experience is seeing the happy smiling face of the recipient of my gift. My second favorite part is when someone exclaims, “Where on earth did you get that”? Gift giving has always to been easy for me.  And I want it to be easy for you too!

So I created this gift guide for those of you that struggle with gift giving, but want to improve your gift giving skills. I want you to get “ohs and ahs” the next time you give a gift.

My #TreatYoSelf Wish List

#treatyoself wish list Hey y’all! Yesterday, I saw one of the bloggers I follow on instagram (my username: sporadic_obsessions) use the hashtag #treatyoself.  Of course, I then clicked on the hashtag to see how others used it! Most seem to use the hashtag on drool worthy food pics. I have a serious sweet tooth, so I don’t consider deserts to be a treats. Cookies, ice cream, and cupcakes are just a normal part of my week!

It’s easy for women to become so consumed with taking care of others (spouse, children, parents, boss, friends, ect.) that they put their own wants and needs on the back burner. And sometimes we neglect ourselves for so long that we can’t remember what we actually like, want or need. Now if the above self-care statements were not enough of a justification for “treating yourself” keep reading.
