Brookestone a Ton of Great Gift Ideas and Solutions!

blog-brookstoneThe gifts available at Brookstone are unbelievable! There are gifts for a variety of occasions including weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, housewarming, anniversaries, graduations, and so much more. Heck, you don’t have to have an occasion to shop here! I frequently look around for things for myself.

Brookstone carries a variety of things both in their store and online. These items include (but are DEFINITELY not limited to): electronics, furniture, entertaining items, outdoor gear, pool accessories, wine and bar things, toys and games, travel accessories, and so much more. One benefit of shopping in the store vs going online is that they often have their products set up for demonstration. It’s nice to be able to see the items up close and personal and even try them out!

Super Cute Girl Toddler Clothes

Naartjie-toddler girl royal rose fall collectionIn a couple weeks, my family and I are celebrating my niece’s 1st birthday. I’m really excited to see my family again, as it’s been such a busy summer that I haven’t seen them since the 4th of July!

I’m still in shock that my niece is already going to be a year old! She will technically no longer be an “infant” and now be considered a toddler! This year has gone by so quickly and it’s been so amazing to be able to watch her grow and learn. She’s already taking a step or two and loves playing with her toys.

I ordered a bunch of girl toddler clothes to give her as a gift. She has a lot of toys already and I figured that with how quickly she’s growing, her mom will appreciate them! I love this fall collection and think it’s super cute. I had a hard time deciding what to get out of them all!

A Gift For Me From Clinique at Herberger’s

blog-cliniqueEvery month, I go into Herberger’s to get my make-up re-stocked. I never seem to conveniently run out of  things at the same time, but it always seems like once a month I run out of at least one thing.

Sometimes when I get my make-up (I always get Clinique–it’s my favorite!) I get lucky and there is a bonus and free gift. Today when I went in, they had a bonus free 7-piece gift with any purchase of over $27 or more. I felt like it was my lucky day! I love the things in my gift set and I know they will make great addition to my make-up collection! This gift set is worth $70 and is a great deal.


A Gift Card to a Spa in Huntington Beach Was One of My Favorite Gifts

CloudMover--massageI’ve received my fair share of gifts. Between all of my  years of Christmas gifts, birthday gifts, and gifts for thank-yous, congratulations and more. I am pretty unselfish as I say that I like to give gifts more than I enjoy getting them. Some of the best gifts I’ve gotten, though, I keep in mind and remember them when giving to others!


Last year for my birthday, I received flowers, a bottle of wine, and a gift certificate for a massage to a spa in Huntington Beach. I had an amazing time here and really enjoyed this gift! I decided to use it on a massage and am really glad I did. I ended up making an appointment for another body treatment there and loved it just as much!  There are so many treatment options available there that I have a hard time deciding!

Take Advantage of the Home Sale at Macy’s

blog-hoomeI love home goods. There are a number of places that I like to go when looking for furniture, bedding, lamps and lighting, decor, kitchen products, etc. Ikea, Home Goods, Macy’s, Bed, Bath and Beyond, Kohl’s, Hobby Lobby, Pier 1 Imports, Gordman’s, and Target are among my favorites although I’ll check out just about anything with great products and an opportunity to save money!

Right now, Macy’s is having a pretty great home sale. They are offering 20%-50% off of certain items, including bed and bath, lighting, kitchen, floor care, dining, home decor, luggage and cleaning.

What do you think of the lights in the picture? I like those!
