With summer here there are so many social opportunities
to give a gift... whether it be a housewarming gift (absolutely a proper must do!) a little thank you to the host or hostess for a backyard dinner or barbecue... the must attend pool party or birthday celebration your friend hosted inviting a dozen or more children hopped up on cake and ice cream.. It's nice to receive but even better to give. Giving a little thank you gift to the mom who watched your child all summer so you could work... or the neighbor who graciously watched or walked your dog when you went on vacation or welcomed a new baby home from the hospital really deserves a sweet gesture of gratitude. It might be the southern way but it's an all around good way to show appreciation for others.
This post includes a variety of options all from Target... that would be great last minute ideas for you to grab and be on your merry way. And of course Target has all the beautiful wrappings needed such as gift bags, tissue and bows to boot!
I can't think of anyone who doesn't like the scent of lemon... especially in the summer time it's a light refreshing scent that evokes wonderful memories and the perception of a clean home even if the dust bunnies haven't been evacuated yet! I really love this candle, it's a wonderful scent and the nice thing about it is it comes in the box so it's ready to gift someone. This would make a great housewarming gift or to present at a casual dinner party... perfect for right by the kitchen sink so the kitchen is beautifully scented.
The blue mug Oh Happy Day is perfect for the neighbors who watched your pet, the friendly girl at doggie day care who is always helpful, or your fellow mom who just aced running her first marathon and is celebrating. This mug evokes the feeling that yes, it is okay even GOOD to mark the little moments to big in life and celebrate them.
Love these blue coasters... a great design they would go with a traditional decorating scheme, modern, eclectic... it's a design that is timeless and such a sweet gift for a housewarming... perfect to gift alone or add to a gift basket of goodies. This kitchen towel is a nice addition and makes a sweet sentiment hanging from the oven while something yummy bakes.
Mugs, mugs and more mugs. Seems these days cute mugs are all the rage and that includes these sweet ones I discovered. Both would be cute for a college graduate that just got her first place. Or maybe a mom who just got her first home and is recently divorced. Whatever the case may be these are cute choices for a thoughtful gift.
I think these make great wedding gifts if you planned to create a basket or for a first home purchase... or maybe you're going to a summer cocktail party and want to gift something that goes with the theme. These are certainly on point and would make a perfectly awesome gesture. I love the crushed ice tray because it works as a gift even if the person doesn't drink alcohol... very versatile and something everyone can enjoy using.
So many great options and this popcorn maker is definitely one of them! I love that it's a mini popcorn maker... perfect for a single or a busy family that just wants to make some popcorn for the kids while they watch a movie so they can get some extra work done around the house or catch up from the office. Great for someone who is a workaholic and would like this option at the office for those late nights. The two books are sweet gifts for kids... very encouraging and all about celebrating being yourself and keeping those dreams big.
I hope this post gave you some great ideas for choosing gifts especially at the last minute.... which can sometimes be stressful and cause panic. No need to worry... the posts here at crazylifebusywife.com are crafted and designed to help make life fun and completely fuss free!
