Can’t-Go-Wrong Gift Guide
These are some of my favorite last minute gifts this season. Get everyone checked off your list with last minute gifts they’ll love. How do I know they’ll love ’em? Cause they’re classy and classic and come on, wouldn’t you totally want them yourself?
1. Vintage-Style French Lavender Soap Tins
I saw these soap tins at World Market and fell in love. They’re oh-so-cute in person, with the classy old-fashioned charm of Art Nouveau advertisements. Perfect for hostess gifts and stocking stuffers, these gifts combine useful soap with use-again packaging.
2. Illustrated Classics
For the bookworm, Barnes and Noble has a line of illustrated, leather-bound classic books. Target also has a hardcover line of classics (shown here). They’re affordably priced and bound to be cherished long after the flimsy paperbacks have been set aside. Perfect for adults and kids of all ages.
3. Hand Painted Gift Box
If you prefer to go the DIY route, craft stores sell wooden boxes and acrylic paint. Create a custom keepsake for someone special with just a coat of paint or two. After repainting a side table last week, this little box was easy! Inside you can slip a gift card or some candy. This makes a good gift for sorority sisters as it makes a great pin box.
