Timeless Holiday Gift Ideas

Whenever we give something, we want to give something that last a lifetime. But what kind of gift would be timeless? Here are some ideas:

A musical instrument is one example of a timeless gift. For someone who has an interest in music, a musical instrument can be a wonderful investment in his life. You can choose from the popular musical instruments like the piano and/or electric keyboard, guitar, violin, or drum set. Once they learn to play the instrument, it will be a gift that continues to give, possibly for several generations if passed down the ranks.

Another popular timeless holiday gift idea would be handmade or heirloom jewelry. From the stunning pendants to the glittering necklaces, there remains a simplistic and yet elegant charm to jewelry. Jewelry also seems to be perfect for passing down family stories and heritage, and thus fits nicely into the timeless category.

For those who are believers, a wonderful and timeless holiday gift idea is that of the Holy Bible. The old family Bible, although tattered and torn and perhaps even worn in a few places, is a special part of the family and is more precious to them than gold, silver or even platinum. Bibles and other holy scriptures for the faithful always make for a special and timeless gift.

This leads us to photo albums and scrapbooks. Whenever someone’s home was destroyed, when asked what they miss the most is always the family photo album. Photos hold our memories with them, and help remind us of where we came from and what we have become. Thus small, handmade collections of special photos are always a welcome and timeless gift to receive.

A tradition that will always be a smart and timeless holiday gift tradition will be that of making and giving away baked goods made from the heart and family recipes passed down from as far as the family can remember. No matter what, the smell of cookies cooking is a welcome scent, and one that always brings a smile to our face.

Finally, when all else fails, you can give money. No matter how fashion and technology changes, money will always remain as a good and thoughtful, and especially timeless, gift to give. In fact, money is the number one requested item no matter what the holiday season being celebrated is!

So there you have it. That is the list of timeless gift ideas. Now what are you waiting for? Don’t waste time preparing your timeless gift!

Relaxing Gift Ideas for Stressed-out Women

Workaholic women nowadays aren’t that hard to find. They could be your mom, your girlfriend or even your friend next door who runs her own online business shop. And with their frenzied activities, they might forget to pamper themselves and relax even for a short while.

Good thing they have you to remind them to let loose and just rest. You might want to give them a little gift to let them get away with those deadlines and tensions that blanket them all month long. Got no idea yet? Never worry because we have some relaxing gift ideas for our stress-magnet ladies. These only cost a little to give them so much of the break they need.

1. Sleep mask

Sleeping enough lets our body not only recover from stress, but also improves one’s health, memory, immune system, learning and a lot more. But during their stressful work hours, one of the very essential activities our ladies forget is to sleep. With this sleep mask, they get to close their eyes and get a darker, more comfortable ambiance for rest since the mask blocks those flashy lights around. It also helps her to keep her eyes shut off and allows her to just fall into sleep.

 2. Soft and cozy blanket

Since sleeping comes to be very beneficial, especially for our stressed out women, let’s get to make her rest worthwhile by giving her a cottony soft and cozy blanket. Allow her to feel caressed and warmed up as she wraps herself around it to rest.

3. Spa gift basket

Aside from the usual basket where she dunks her trash every day, you might want to give her an enjoyable one that contains sweet-scented bath lotion, soap, shampoo, and some more. Getting her into a spa might be costly for you, but giving her the same feeling through this spa gift basket where she can enjoy at home just might be your solution to that. Letting her enjoy her bath time some more gives her a more relaxed feeling.

 4. Head massager

From time to time, their heads get more stressed with all the planning or executing tasks. So they might be getting headaches any time soon. Giving her a head massager will help her to pamper her head with a little bit of massage. It’s very light and easy to use. She might even want to take it with her to office!

 5. Foot bath

Soaking your feet into warm water has been proven to boost normal blood circulation to the entire skin surface as well as the internal organs and the brain. You might want to purchase an affordable foot bath kit for her. With this, she can just soak her feet for 15 to 30 minutes or so, and just let loose of the tension that she’s had throughout the day.

 6. Yoga Gift Certificate

You must have heard about yoga. It’s defined to be “a total mind-body workout” that also promotes proper posture and relaxation. In her workplace, she will most probably have stressed muscles too, aside from her head. And giving her a gift certificate would be a great way to introduce her to yoga and let her feel relaxed as she exercises too.

7. Adult coloring book

One of the arising popular stress-relieving activities for adults nowadays comes from adult coloring books. Researches have supported that even though these books may not be called “art therapy”, it helps you relax, relieve stress, improve focus and creativity. With a variety of these to choose from, you can start off by giving her a 20-page coloring book and a set of coloring pencils to get her going and divert her attention out from work even for a short while.

Holiday: Scrapbooking – The Gift of Memories

Posted by on Oct 17, 2017 in Blog

Holiday: Scrapbooking – The Gift of Memories

Whenever the holidays come up- Mother’s Day, Christmas, birthdays- we always find ourselves facing the same question. “How am I going to find the perfect for my loved one?” Often, we resort to buying a gift but sometimes the gifts that we put an effort to making is often valued than those we buy.

So why not try scrapbooking? Nothing says “I love you” more than a beautiful collection of all the memories of the time you have spent together. Plus, scrapbooking doesn’t require much. You only need photos, postcards, other important memorabilia and your creativity. Making the scrapbook will mean as much to you as it would to the person it was made for.

Scrapbooks can also light up any holiday celebration. Once opened, everyone will go through the book and remember all the wonderful milestones and moments in their lives: memories of weddings and birthday parties, the program from your daughters first ballet recital, the matchbook from the restaurant where you and your future husband had your first dinner. All these things make the scrapbook a gift that will be cherished.

Scrapbooking has come a long way from the days of the slipping the pictures under a plastic sheet or sliding the edges of the pictures into the little black paper corners.

There are now many tools available to help you get started from special scissors, ribbons and other pre-made designs. You can also do this with the rest of the family as a meaningful and fun activity. 

If you have difficulty making your scrapbook, there are websites that can walk you through the basics. There are also community classes for scrapbooking and you can find people through the local paper, the yellow pages or on the Internet that will be glad to build your scrapbook for you.   

You can also gather all the photos together, put them in order and take them to a place that will put it all onto a video tape or DVD for you, unless of course you’re lucky enough to have the knowledge and skill to do so yourself. This also has the advantage of keeping your photos safe from deterioration due to age or normal wear and tear.

Mother’s Day Craft Ideas

Posted by on Aug 8, 2017 in Blog

Mother’s Day Craft Ideas

When Mother’s Day rolls around, kids want to show their moms just how special they are. Store-bought gifts and cards are nice, but they lack that personal touch.

So if you want to give mom something with sentimental value that doesn’t cost much, why not try any of these easy craft ideas? 

Framed Photos

We all know that moms love their kids over anything else and if there is a close second to what moms love, it would be photos of children. So why not give mom a lovely framed photo?

One of the cheapest and simplest ways to make a picture frame is to cut one out of paper. Construction paper, card stock and thick scrapbooking paper are good choices. If you want a sturdier frame, you can use corrugated cardboard. Just make sure the opening in the middle is large enough to display the part of the photo you want. You can make the frame any shape you like and decorate with paint, glitter and stickers. Add a magnet to the back for easy display on the refrigerator. 

You can also make frames out of craft sticks. Just glue the ends of four sticks together to make a square, and decorate with markers or paint. You can also buy a plain photo frame and decorate it as you please.

Candle Holders 

To make your candle holder, you have to start with a jar. Small jars are often a good choice but larger baby food jars work well for tealights and votives. Pint jars can hold votives or small pillar candles.

Now to decorate your jar, use tissue paper. Mix equal parts white glue and water, and stick the paper onto the outside of the jar, stopping below the rim. Use pieces of different colors to create a stained glass look. Cut some shapes out of the paper if you like, arrange them in a pretty pattern, and glue on top of the larger pieces. Coat with the glue mixture to seal, and let dry.

Bath Salts 

Homemade bath salts are perfect to pamper your mom after a long day.

To make them, just mix 3 cups of Epsom salts, 2 cups of baking soda, and 1 cup of table salt. Add about twenty drops of a fragrant essential oil. Lavender, sandalwood and chamomile are good choices. Mix thoroughly. Now, it’s time to present the bath salts to Mom in a pretty jar tied with a ribbon.

 Decorative Flowerpot

Bring a smile to your mom’s face with a decorative flower pot.

Start with small unglazed terra cotta flowerpots because they are easy to paint on. Use acrylic paint to make a pretty scene or design. If you don’t have a flowerpot, a styrofoam cup will do. You can decorate it with markers, glitter glue and stickers. When your creation is dry, fill it with potting soil and plant a few seeds. Try to do this a week or two before Mother’s Day so the plant will have time to start growing. Don’t forget to give it plenty of sun and water.

Any mom will definitely appreciate these simple yet thoughtful crafts. She will surely give her good memories in the Mother’s Day to come.

The first step is to decide what kind of birthday greeting card you want it to be. Is it funny or a sentimental? This is crucial because it will determine how you will later design it. For example, if you want a funny greeting card, you will want cut outs of cartoons, or you might want to draw your own cartoons.

The next thing you have to do is decide what birthday message to write on the greeting card. You can write your own poem or put an already written poem on it. A friendly reminder: copyright laws forbid you to sell someone else’s work without permission. But for the purposes of just making a greeting card for a loved one, copying a favorite poem, saying, or scripture is more than acceptable.

The next step now is to gather all the materials you will need to put the greeting card together. You will want to gather cut outs of any pictures you want to include, as well as scissors, paste or glue stick, construction paper, crayons or markers, a pencil for outlining (in case you make mistakes), and don’t forget your creativity! You may also want some lace, ribbon, doilies, pretty material scraps, paints, and other items.

The most important thing to remember when creating your own greeting card is that there is no limit to what your creativity can let you do! There is no right or wrong way to make a birthday greeting card. So break out those old magazines, poetry books, comic books, and cartoon strips, get those creative juices flowing, and make the best greeting card ever!

Rocking Someone’s World with a Globe

Posted by on Apr 5, 2017 in Blog

Rocking Someone’s World with a Globe

Do you know someone who’s redoing his or her house with the elegant old-world, antique home style? Are you stumped with what to give them? Why not try gifting him old-world globes?

These globes are very elegant and classic, enhancing the old-world feel in one’s house. These simple and miniature replicas of our world are exquisitely and beautifully designed masterpieces, which cost under $50 to as high as thousands of dollars.

 1. Consider first the person to whom you will be giving the globe.

It’s important to know the interests and the personality of the person you’re giving the globe to. This will be an important consideration later on in choosing the specific globe.

2. Shop around for the globe that you like.

There is a wide array of globes to choose from in shops. Check the globe first before you actually buy one. See if its quality is worth its price. You can also choose a globe in your desired size and colors. Most modern globes have oceans colored blue. But if you want old-world globes for a more antique feel, then shop around for globes with antique, cream-colored oceans. Other things you might want to consider are if you want the globe to have an ordinary flat surface, or you want certain features, such as hills, volcanoes, or mountains in relief.

3. What model globe do you want?

Remember that there are also globes that can be converted into a table or floor model with just a few medications.

 4. There are also globes that illuminate

Illuminated globes however have a more modern feel compared with unlighted, antique ones. So, if you want the receiver to have an antique feel, it might be wise to opt for an unlighted globe.

5. How detailed do you want your globe to be?

Now this will be dependent on how particular you are with the globe. If you see it as purely aesthetic, you might want to opt for a more basic globe that just have the outlines of the countries. But if you have a penchant for accuracy, you would probably opt for a globe that ha the names of countries, its cities and other landmarks and natural wonders. Of course, the larger the size of the globe you are buying, the bigger the space it has for more details.

 6. Purchasing Tips

Now that you have selected your globe, here are a few reminders before purchasin. First, check if the stand goes with the globe. Inspect if the globe stand is sturdy enough to hold the globe. Also check if the globe is from a reputable manufacturer.

 7. Ensure You Can Return It

If you have decided to finally buy one, make sure that you can return it or exchange for another if the recipient of your gift feels there are other types of globe that he or she can use for his or her home as decor.

 8. Maintenance

If you are giving a friend or family member an antique, old-world globe, you should remind him or her that taking care of the globe is important. You see, globes are covered with some special coating that is designed for protecting the ball and maintain its antique appearance. Globes that have accumulated household dust are easy to clean using a dry cloth. From time you may want to have a cloth slightly dampened for you to remove smudges or fingerprints. For marks or stains that are difficult to remove, you could use a non-abrasive product that is mild. You should not use household or industrial cleaners containing any solvent or alcohol.

In thinking of a valuable piece to add to a friend’s home, an antique world globe may just be what they need.

Through the years as they grow, these personalized gifts would become tokens of love that you’ve sent to them even before they are born.

In this way, the parents can still personalize your gift after birth and use it for our angel.

There are lots of choices for items that you can personalize for the incoming baby. There are picture frames, baby cups, baby socks or mittens, jewellery, cutlery set, and lot more to choose from. You just have to look around and decide what’s the cutest.

To start off, the baby’s name embroidered on a blanket would be a beautiful gift to both the mother and the baby.

Your labor of love gift basket

Very popular for gifts nowadays are gift baskets, for they contain a lot of useful things packed together very nicely. They can be made-to-order or ready-made. But, it is also a good idea to have this as a personalized gift for the new-born. You can personally put together all cute baby items that you’ve picked and have it wrapped with love. Do you like to make one? Here’s how.

  1. Choose the size of your gift basket first. You can have a medium-sized one, so you won’t have much difficulty in filling them with baby items. Craft stores usually sell baskets in various sizes, shapes, colors and designs that you can choose from. For added beauty, you can use tissue paper or raffia together with the baby towels and blankets to fill the basket’s bottom.
  1. If you’ve chosen a large basket, you can fill it up with larger items like stuffed toys, pillows, crib comforters or crib bumpers. If you’re gift basket is for a first born, you can place smaller yet more items, to your large basket, that the baby really needs.
  1. You should always consider the baby’s gender in choosing your gift items. If you haven’t known it yet, better choose unisex items that the baby can surely use. Just don’t forget to choose the cutest.
  1. Having a theme is a great idea. Typically, it is color coded: pink items for baby girls and blue items for baby boys. But you can always choose other designs as well; there’s floral, hello kitty-themed, or those with stars and clouds. You can also have a bedtime theme with your basket filled with blankets, pillows, a teddy bear, music CD, story books and pajamas. Just be creative because this part is where your imagination will shine.

  1. If you’re using a baby tub, you can fill it with the baby’s needs for his bath time: soaps, baby shampoo, powder, towels, lotion, bubble bath and a cute rubber duckie.
  1. If you choose the trunk, you can fill it with story books, receiving blankets, decorated or inherited items, a picture frame and an inspirational book about parents and babies. You can even add a little notebook with inspirational notes in it for the baby.
