Hello and Happy, Happy Friday!

I hope some of you are off today traveling or getting an early start on the holiday weekend. I’ll be working a couple hours and then plan to kick off the break with some Heidi cuddles and maybe a nap – exciting huh? Justin and I were saying how much we wish Orange is the New Black were coming out this weekend, because we would have so much time to do nothing but Netflix. As of right now our plans are to relax (and maybe take some blog photos hehe). 

I thought I’d share a Bridal Gift Guide today, because I recently attended a shower and know wedding season is in full swing – hopefully this will be helpful! Many times brides have registries to choose from, but in my friend’s case, she set it up more as a formality, so I took the creative liberty of picking out her presents myself. Originally, I was going to purchase some candles she said she liked when she came to visit, but sadly, couldn’t find them. So instead I found this adorable pineapple candle at Target and it all evolved from there.

It’s not shown in the photo, but I purchased a white and pink square cloth basket with handles and used that as the gift bag. That way she could actually use it and wouldn’t have extra trash to throw away. I found it in the $1-$3 section of Target – and let me tell you, never turn your nose up at that section at the front of the store. So many cute & essential items especially for gift wrapping!

Some other great gifts for your special bride to be are: nail polish, bright baubles, self-tanner (think of that tropical honeymoon), a makeup/toiletry bag, a gift card (so she can buy what she really wants), lip balm, adorable bridal/wifey clothing, and even some snacks! Would doesn’t love snacks?! I put it all in the basket and then stuffed it with gold & mint tissue paper.

I ended up absolutely loving the way it turned out – so bright & colorful…and I may have made sure all of the items & packaging color coordinated. Also, don’t forget a thoughtful card – words can mean so much more than stuff!

Again, I hope everyone has a restful, fun, safe Memorial Day weekend. Come back Monday for some motivation and maybe some Memorial sales!
