It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and if I am excited for Christmas every year, then take that excitement and times it by x100000 this year! After the ride that 2020 has been I am so glad that the festive season has rolled around once more, and I am all here for the celebrations. To be completely honest with you, my tree has actually been up since the 1st of November already because I just couldn’t wait, ha-ha 😊 I absolutely love giving gifts at this time of year, because gift giving is actually my love language, so I always put extra thought into each present that I buy. With that in mind today, I wanted to share my little Christmas gift guide with you from a lovely brand called Love and Sparkles, should you be looking for some gift inspiration as well.
The internet is a lovely space sometimes, and that is how I met Kate, the owner of Love and Sparkles. When I got engaged, Kate sent me the loveliest gift and ever since then we have kept in touch, and I love her small, local, women-owned business! Love and Sparkles offers a lot of awesome items that you can personalize, and I am such a sucker for anything that has my name on it. From mugs, T-shirts and even down to facemasks, this online store is your one-stop shop this festive season for your gifts for everyone.
All these items are available at Love and Sparkles, you can also email them for a quote on personalized items. Here are my favorite picks from the site, but there are honestly too many to mention.
For The Soon-To-Be Wifey
There is a gorgeous array of goodies for the bride-to-be, so if you are looking to spoil a soon-to-be wife, then look no further! My picks as a recent bride myself, are the “Engaged AF” T-shirt(R160), the gorgeous “Wifey” tote bag(R149) which would be so handy on honeymoon, or a simple “Bride” T-shirt(R160) that she can wear to her bridal shower or bachelorette party. There is also a selection of customized mugs available, I love my “Future Mrs. Devine” mug and I used it all the time when I was wedding planning.
For The Travel Lover
COVID might have shattered all our 2020 travel plans, but 2021 brings some hope that we can bust out that passport from our draws again (PS make sure to check that your passport is still valid! 😉). I love this Wanderlust T-shirt(R180) that would be perfect for a plan ride or a day of exploring, paired with the comfy Airplane Mode sweat top(R349). The passport holders are just too cute, especially when they are personalized with yours and hubbies’ names(R299)!
For Your Meme Loving BFF
I don’t know about you, but if I don’t receive at least 3 DMs from my besties with memes every day, then our friendship is over! 😉 I am suck a sucker for memes and puns, so I asked Kate to make this “There’s Some Ho’s In This House” T-shirt(R190) for me! Why not get matching T-shirts for your festive party with cute puns such as “Mince Pies Before Guys” or “Gantsa Wrapper”? They are all honestly too awesome for words, and this is what I am gifting my girlfriends at our upcoming Christmas party!
For The Ultimate #BossBabe
Say what you will, but I don’t think that you can ever have enough notebooks, especially such awesome ones that say, “Girls Just Want to Be CEO”(R70)!? I have one like that which I use for my daily blog notes, and I simply love it. Your boss babe friend would appreciate your support as well as a customized travel cup(R149) or notebook with her business details on them 😊
For The Pet And Plant Moms
I am a cat mom myself, and this year I have also become a plant mom, raising 5 new plant babies (which is a amazing for me because previously I use to kill them!). Love and Sparkles has a whole dog range called Wishbone that both you and your furry friend will absolutely adore!
For Your Bride Squad
If you are a bride and busy planning your wedding, then look no further for awesome bridesmaids’ gifts. I gave all my girls gifts from Love and Sparkles in their bridesmaid’s proposal boxes, and they loved it. My picks for festive gifts for you girls are “Bridesmaid” T-shirts(R160) which are always handy to have for your bridal activities in 2021, Bride Squad badges(R30), because sashes are actually really uncomfortable, and pretty earrings(R129) that the girls could wear on your wedding day as part of their outfits. Pretty and functional at the same time.
Festive Stocking Stuffers
If you are just looking for some cute gifts for teachers, relatives or friends, then I also highly recommend you check out the Love and Sparkles Christmas range. You can get personalized Christmas Baubles(from R39) and how about these festive mugs(from R99)? They come in so many colors with different slogans on them, and they will for sure add some sparkle into anyone’s day.
Lastly, when it comes to packaging your gifts this year, please consider going eco-friendly with these awesome totes. These will make a great addition to any gift, you can personalize them with different names, and this is something that you can re-used repeatedly(even for shopping for groceries!)
