10 Gifts He’ll Love (Recommended by a Guy!)

How is Christmas just a week away? Time has been flying by, and I’m nowhere near done with all of my holiday shopping! I even contemplated if it was too late to post a few more gift guides, but realized that there’s probably a lot of people in similar situations out there. Am I right? Please tell me I’m right…

15 Experiential Gift Ideas That are Perfect for Your S.O.

Gosh, I love the holidays. It is the most wonderful time of the year, right? *cue Andy Williams* Truly though, there’s nothing like spreading a bit of love during the cold winter months, whether it’s through the most lavish of gifts or even just a genuine smile. In fact, the next time I go to get my signature medium hot chocolate from Dunkin’, I’m definitely treating the next person in line…I’ve always wanted to do that! It’s the little things that make all of the difference during the holidays…

10 Secret Santa Gift Ideas Your Girls Will Love, All Under $25

Secret santa gift exchanges are one of my favorite holiday activities. There’s something about keeping who you’re shopping for on the down low that makes it extra exciting! In fact, there was so much anticipation between myself and my roommates that we just had to do our swap last weekend. So what if we caved in during just the first weekend in December? The only problem is that I’m still getting Elfster reminders that my gift exchange will be happening soon…

10 Super Easy Holiday Gifts for Her

It’s never too early to start posting holiday gift guides. Am I right? I do one ‘For Her’ every year, and it’s always my favorite to make (perhaps because I’m essentially compiling my own wish list?). So, needless to say, I just couldn’t wait any longer to publish this post. This year’s list of ideas for the girlfrand in your life is definitely my favorite so far, because it’s light and fun. Fun is a good thing. Plus, you pretty much can’t go wrong with any of the items on this list. If nothing else, they’re totally #instaworthy. Here’s the DTLs, and don’t forget to check out previous gift guides here for more inspo: 1. philosophy shampoo, shower gel, & bubble bath I don’t know of any girl who dislikes philosophy. Their products are a little high end, but not totally out of reach, which makes one of these holiday…

I’m Turning 20!! : Birthday Wishlist + 20 Things I’ve Learned by 20

Though it hasn’t quite sunk in yet, I’m turning 20 this weekend. I’m finally exiting those awkward teen years, for the most part unscathed, and am ready to take on a new decade of learning, growing, having fun, and ultimately making the most out of every year. After all, age is just a number… And I hope I can still appreciate this train of thought 20 more years from now — ha! But really, I’m excited to see what’s in store. Plus, after Saturday, I can officially call myself a “twenty-something”. It kind of feels like I’ll be joining a super secret club where everybody has been hanging out without me. Woo! Today I thought it would be fun to give you guys a glimpse at my wish list, as well as provide an updated list of 20 things I’ve learned by 20. I did this two years ago when I…

A Unique Gift for the Man Who Has it All + a Giveaway

Thank you Snapfish for sponsoring this post. Make this Father’s Day extra special with personalized photo gifts from Snapfish.  If you’re a TBC regular, you know just how much I love creating gift guides. I’ve always found them super helpful when I’m stuck on what to get someone, and I love providing others with inspiration for their loved ones as well. Also, let’s be honest…well-made guides are pretty and fun to look at, AND they give us ideas of what to put on our own wish lists 😉 That being said, every year I struggle with what to get my dad for Father’s Day. As a very outgoing and successful guy, there’s not much he really needs or asks for. He’s done some pretty crazy stuff, from showjumping horses to driving race cars, so it’s almost impossible to surprise him! And isn’t this true of most dads nowadays? Okay, maybe…

WTF To Bring as a Hostess Gift (For Every Budget!)

First of all, I’m pretty sure I loaded 100% of these items into my shopping cart when I was making this roundup…for MYSELF. #selfish. I’m really digging the pink and gold color scheme and especially the Yay! Boom! Cheers! shot glasses. How cute??? Anywho, why are we talking hostess gifts today? Because they’re classy AF.  We all have that one friend who’s just got her sh*t together, right? She’s polite, organized, and really makes us feel guilty about eating Easy Mac for dinner. Think about it. This is totally something she would do. She’d bring a dope a** hostess gift, even if it’s under 20 bucks, just because it’s the classy, adult thing. I’m not saying I’m giving up my Easy Mac anytime soon, but hey, sometimes you gotta fake it until you make it. So, whenever I’m invited to a party, I’m definitely going to have one of these killer…
