Hello my darlings! I am SO sorry it’s been such a lapse between my post. I have been so sick lately, and it’s only getting worse. Lets pray this is the end of it, as I haven’t even gotten my flu shot yet! Just ugh!
To make it up to you all, this year, I’ve decided that I would do a little something! You know the same ol’ holiday gift guide you always see on various websites; like Amazon, Nordstrom and Staples? Well I decided to do Holiday Gift Guide Series, featuring themed guides all season long! I will combine all the things we love form the various guides on those sites I mentioned above, but mix it up a bit.
Now here’s the twist, every week, I will be giving you all themed gift guides, of your choice! It can be based on color, gender, price point, etc. Please feel free to leave a comment on this post with gift guide ideas or feel free to email me or visit my personal/blog Instagram page and send me a message. I’ll be doing this all the way up to New Years, because who doesn’t love a good gift of New Years day?!
2018 Holiday Gift Guide – Blush Version
So first guide of the season was chosen by my sister. She suggested I do a”pink” themed guide initially, as I love all things pink. Naturally I agreed, before she even completed her sentence! So later on that day, while picking up some wine for the holidays, I was wondering around inside total wine and happened upon a bottle of blush wine. And then I thought to myself, I won’t do pink, I’ll do a “Blush” holiday gift guide! Since I am a blushing bride to me after all! Yup. That’s exactly how it happened…I know, my mind works in mysterious ways. 🙂
Up above you’ll notice that the picture is a collage of all the items I’m about to discuss, at the end of this post, you will see the final picture listing short descriptions of all the items. I will tell you all items you’ll find on here vary in price range. The are anywhere from $19.00 – $298.00! I hope you find something perfect for you and your loved ones, co-workers or friend. So without further ado, I present you all with the Blush Version of my 2018 Holiday Gift Guide, enjoy!
