Gifts for Him

My man's birthday is coming up. Don't worry, I am ready and have some precious gifts for him. It was not easy as his birthday is twenty days before Christmas. I had the hardest time figuring out what to get him. It is not just the gift itself but the fact that three weeks later I would have to give him something else. Yes, I know, Christmas is not about the gifts at all. I know, I know. However, when your entire family makes you write a Christmas list you know you will receive something, so in return you feel compelled to do the same. Plus, we all love to open a few gifts either on the 24th or the 25th. It brings back childhood memories of some sorts. 

Either way, guys are never really easy to get gifts for; mine certainly isn't. Yet, there's always something he needs or secretly wants. One of my friends give her favorite person nothing. She claims that having brought children into this world was her gift, forever. I don't know about that. He showers her with gifts, so I would at least think of one item I could make him happy for one day. Don't get me wrong, I love my friend, I just think it's odd. 

Anyways, if you are having trouble finding something for you guy, last minute of course, maybe these simple items may spark an idea. I know mine will get a special T-shirt, shoes {well, we will go together shoe shopping...poor guy will be in trouble, or will it be me?!}, and a few items I know he will use and love. Here's to me finding more last minute gifts because yes, not only is his birthday coming up but Christmas, too. 

Wish me luck!

Body Lotion by c.Booth

A few weeks ago I was sent a voucher to buy a c.Booth lotion and review it for testing purposes. I love Influenster and I am sure you have seen me review different products over the past four years from them. I have to admit that I don't always review on my blog. Reason is simple. If I like the product I will review it on the blog, but if I feel I don't like it or don't think it deserves a spot on the blog I will not.  

C.Booth however, I think, deserves a spot.

Its "slogan" is simple. authentic. trusted.
I don't know c.Booth that well, but I can say it is definitely simple, and smells delicious. I chose to get the Vanilla Butter 4-1 Multi-Action Lotion and it is fantastic. The bottle is huge, and what comes out of it smells awesome. The 4-1 action includes exfoliation, hydration, nourishment, and firming. Cannot complain about it. The Vanilla flavor definitely adds to the holiday season and we all need some warmth during this season.
Honestly though, I have to use the entire bottle to tell you exactly how intrigued I am with this product. I have mentioned in a previous post that I am lazy in the morning and sadly often skip the very important act of putting lotion onto my precious skin. Needless to say I have used this multi-action lotion, I just have not used it enough. So far I can tell that it nourishes and hydrates. Maybe it is me but I also see a glow on my skin. Either way, so far this product has not disappointed. Also, yes, I took that photo in my bedroom, and yes I decided to use it before I go to bed as I may not be too lazy to put some yummy smelling lotion on.

Verdict: I would give this product 4 out of 5 stars. It lost a star because of its price and the fact that it will take me forever to finish this product. I don't like throwing away unfinished products. It will take me months to finish this; maybe one year.

I found my bottle at Bed, Bath & Beyond. Ulta sells it, too. 

Disclaimer: I received this product complimentary for testing purposes. All opinions are my own.

Gift Ideas for the Hostess

With the holidays around the corner there is a chance that we get invited to a party or two. Whether it is one held by your work, your best friend, your parents, or a friend of a friend you will be a guest. I was taught to always bring a gift to the host or/and hostess. It doesn't have to be anything special; something small, like a cute napkin, flowers, or a bottle of your favorite wine would do the trick. It shows your appreciation to the hosts and once you are the one giving a party you would probably want something cute in return as well. I definitely say never no.

I'd definitely say yes to the pillows, an ornament, candles and any bottle of wine. Depending on the event I have seen people being very creative with their gifts. I love the fall-winter coasters, and unfortunately it is something I don't see people use as often anymore. Maybe I am hanging out with the wrong crowds? Coasters are so much fun! I brought once a unique bottle holder to an event and it was the best gift that evening; that is if you know the hosts and their love for wine. ;) 

Are you invited to a holiday party, a get-together of some sorts this time of year!? If so, and you are not sure what to bring, don't feel overwhelmed. Sometimes simpler is better.

Happy early Thanksgiving my lovely readers!!!
Whether or not you are celebrating know that I am very thankful for you!
