Gift Ideas for Him

Hello and welcome back! I hope you all are having a wonderful week. I finished my last exam for this semester last night and I could not be more excited to have a break from school for a few weeks. This weekend I plan on wrapping up the last bit of Christmas shopping. Oddly enough, most of the people left for me to shop for are guys. I think the men in my life are harder to shop for because they are all so easy going. Today I wanted to share a few gift ideas for the men in your life.

Hello and welcome back! I hope you all had a fun Thanksgiving. We had a wonderful week away with some of our favorite people, but it’s nice to be back home with our two sweet pups.

I found our Christmas tree a few years ago at Walmart for only $40. It’s 6.5 feet tall and pre-lit. It’s a pretty basic looking tree. For what we paid for it, we have absolutely gotten our money’s worth. Last year, I found myself ogling other people’s flocked Christmas trees online. The fake snow is stunning with the lights. So this year I decided I wanted a tree upgrade, until I actually started looking online at flocked trees. They are so expensive!! I can certainly attest they are beautiful, but I’m not about to shell out $300 on a tree. Imagine all the gifts you can get peopleĀ  with that money! Naturally, we decided to DIY it. The best part is that we only spent $15 on the supplies!
