Another Great Etsy Sign



I feel like I’ve been spending more time than ever on Etsy, checking out some of the great homemade and unique custom gifts. The signs on Etsy of course can be given for any occasion, but during this time of the year it’s hard to think of anything but Christmas!

I found this custom family name block sign that has gotten GREAT reviews on Etsy. These are individual letter blocks that are put together to make a name sign. Not only can this be personalized to fit your family name, but it can be created to accommodate the colors in your home that you decorate with. Simply send a picture of the room for which you want the sign to go in and they will coordinate the colors of the sign. The seller then sends you a picture of the blocks for your approval before shipping so that you are 100% satisfied before it ships!

This MiniDock is Perfect For Saving Space

I’m always looking for ways to save space when possible. It’s so easy for the house to get cluttered, especially when you like “stuff” as much as I do. I feel like I’m always finding things online that I want to get because they’re so useful and nifty!

This is why I like this MiniDock for iPods and iPhones. This saves a ton of counter space and helps keep messy-looking cords from getting tangled because it plugs directly into the outlet to allow charging of the device. I really want to get this and think that it would make a great stocking stuffer for some people on my Christmas list.

This comes in three different versions and is available for US, UK, and EU outlets.

This Battery-Powered Lighted Willow Branch Makes a Great Housewarming Gift

I have a housewarming party to attend in December. I am excited to go to this, don’t get me wrong, but it sure adds a lot during the holiday season. I feel like I have enough on my plate trying to pick up extra hours at work to make up for all of the Christmas shopping that needs to be done and travel to see different relatives so that the holidays can be celebrating with everybody. ‘Tis the season for business though I suppose!

I found this battery operated lighted willow branch when I was shopping for my own holiday decorations on the Solutions website. I thought that it looked perfect for the couple and would add to their home by bringing in a little extra “coziness” and glow. During the holidays, they can fill the vase with artificial cranberries to make it festive. I really like this and might even order one for myself!

Seriously Great Deals at Target on Toys

I’m sure I’ve told you this before and I’m sure you can tell by some of the things I post, but I seriously love shopping online. I prefer shopping online to shopping in a traditional brick and mortar store because I can avoid the hustle and bustle of customers and employees in the store, avoid the long lines and long waiting times, and avoid the risk of a product bring out of stock when I arrive at the store.

Right now Target is having a huge sale on their toys. If you have kids to buy toys for Christmas for, then I would check this sale out and save some money. It’d also be nice to get some online shopping done now and save money rather than getting trampled by the crowds on Black Friday trying to save some money.


My Sister Wants a Tea Kettle for Christmas

My sister and I share a common love for tea and all hot beverages, really. Lately I’ve been doing a lot of hot apple cider with cinnamon sticks as well as hot chocolate with marshmallows. Tea is the healthiest option, but sometimes I like to change it up.

For Christmas this year, I’m getting her a tea kettle. She doesn’t have one and usually just heats up the water in the microwave. However, this isn’t always the best idea as she burned her hand last week taking the mug out of the microwave! Microwaves can also leave hot spots in food and beverage items (which is why they’re not recommended for heating up things like baby formula and milk).

They have a great selection oftea kettles at Target and I’m looking forward to coming over to her house and having some hot tea and enjoy some good conversation!
