Gifts For Coffee Lovers

Responsibility | Starbucks Coffee Company

Starbucks is a company that takes caring for the planet very seriously. They work to recycle their products, teach their employees ways to save water and give the consumer many options to help them liver greener lives too.
On April 15th they offered free coffee to anyone who brought in their own reusable mug. But did you know that they offer $.10 off every time you bring in your mug. That's right, Starbucks encourages you to protect the environment by offering you discounts to go green. 

If you have a coffee lover in your family, why not splurge and get them a set of reusable travel mugs along with a gift certificate to their favorite coffee spot. You will not only encourage them to be more responsible, but will feel good knowing you are doing your part by spreading the word.

Last Minute Bridal Shower Gift

Bridal showers rank up there with baby showers. Girls love attending them, and when it is their own, love it even more. I have found over the years that most showers are the same. Baby showers are filled with baby games, new mom trivia, and lots and lots of diapers. A dream come true for the new mom. She may not realize it right away, but any experienced mom knows diapers are a necessity you appreciate, especially if you are nursing.
Bridal showers run the same. Lots of cookbooks, advice and fancy lingerie. While these things are traditional and very much appreciated by the husband to be, the last shower I attended I decided to do something a little different.
I wanted this gift to be just for the bride. Something, tasteful, unique and enjoyable. I have loved the many forms of diaper cakes for babies and was very excited to find this beautiful towel cake. Filled with luxurious Shea butter lotions, lip balm, candles and some fancy hot chocolate mixes this gift was perfect for my friend.
This gift, while perfect for the bridal shower, would make a great birthday present or Mothers day gift for that woman in your life who deserves a little pampering. 

Gift Includes:

  • 1 luxurious bath towel

  • 1 coordinating face towel

  • Shea butter body cream

  • Body wash with shea butter extract

  • Shea butter lip balm

  • .53 oz. of pure shea butter

  • 9 chocolate scented tea lights

  • 2 chocolate truffle gourmet hot cocoas

    Last Minute Gifts for Mom's

    With mothers day less then a month away, it's time to start thinking what you will get for your mom. Mom's always love flowers. Some mom's are happy to have extra chores done. I know one mom who just wants to go out for coffee with a few friends as her gift.

    To start begin thinking of what you mom would love most. A hand made card, a gift certificate to pamper herself or a home made dinner from her favorite kids. What can you think of that she would like.

    Next, you may want to consider your budget. How much can you spend on a gift for mom. You do not need lots of money in order for mom to appreciate a gift from you. Many mom's just want to be appreciated and pampered by her family on that day. Think of a special thing you can do.

    Remember your mom is a mom because of you. Let her know how much you love her by treating her kindly and playing maid or butler for the day.
