Full disclosure – I am a terrible gift-giver!  I really have a hard time coming up with thoughtful gifts and things people would enjoy.  Not only that, but I tend to wait until the last minute to get a gift.  That is not a good combination! Because of this, I have come up with some simple gift giving tips and ideas.

I really struggle with ideas for birthdays and special occasions. However, I have a new strategy that seems to be working great for those occasional gifts such as weddings or showers!  It is only new to me, because I think this is how regular gift-givers must operate. 

  • Online Selections – As soon as you get an invitation with selections that can be ordered online, go ahead and place an order right then.
  • Keep a good selection of cards on hand for all occasions.
  • Have a supply of gift sacks and tissue paper on hand for all occasions.
  • Keep a list on your phone. Throughout the year, when you get an ideas for someone, jot it down.
  • When you can, go in with friends or relatives to get gifts – the more brainstorming/ideas the better.
  • Homemade gifts are always great! This includes favorite meals, snacks, and desserts.

With Father’s Day so close, I would like to share a few gift ideas for men. These are some of my husband’s favorite things!

  1. On Gift giving, No one of my family NEEDS anything, so I shop nostalgia and vintage for each them. Example—I have two Fortune (1937 and 1939) magazine covers (very Deco) framed and matted in the trunk of my car for $7 each—for my son—for his birthday. Highlight for Christmas was a set of crab picks, from the turn of the 19th century—for the seafood lover. Speaking of I have an old metal minnow bucket that will become an outdoor lamp for hubby tucked away. Never hurts to really think about the person you are buying or making for!

    1. I love this idea!!! If I can get some ideas now, I could look throughout the year. Thank you for sharing this! I’m already thinking of the possibilities!
