Brentwood Home Giveaway

Venice Lounger

I had been planning to purchase my oldest son, Jaxon, some type of chair for when he plays video games in his room, but this Venice Lounger is even better than any other idea I had come up with! It looks really nice sitting out in his room, and it’s big enough for adults to use as well!

It’s filled with the same plush gel memory foam as their mattresses and is so comfortable to sit on!  It comes in three colors: Marine, Orchid, and Graphite. The cover is removable for easy washing too!

Lily Pad Pillow

Brentwood Home Giveaway

The Lily Pad Pillow is made with natural latex and Kapok so it’s non-allergenic! It has the same softness of down without the risk of allergies and medium-firm support for growing bodies!  It will be just perfect for our youngest son, Benjamin, who should be ready for a pillow soon.  All pillows available on Brentwood Home’s website are appropriate for both children and adults.

2016 Subscription Box Gift Guide

This post contain some affiliate links – for more information see our Disclosure Statement.

I love subscription boxes!  From makeup to food, I love them all!   I decided to put together a Subscription Box Gift Guide because there really is something for everyone and I have yet to meet anyone who doesn’t love them!

For The Coffee Lover

Bean Box:  Anyone who loves coffee is sure to love a subscription to Bean Box!  Choose from coffee sampler boxes, coffee of the month subscriptions, or one of many other gift options available!

See my review of Bean Box HERE.

For The Tea Lover

The TeaBox:  For the tea fanatic in your life, give a 1, 3, 6, or 12-month tea subscription!  The flavors are custom chosen based on your answers to a few simple questions.

For The Beauty Junkie

Birchbox: probably the most popular beauty subscription box out there.  It’s a great way to try before you buy and usually includes brands and products that are new or not sold in stores. Usually, the items are sample sized but full sized items do show up from time to time. Recipients will receive a combination of makeup, skin care, nail polish, and hair care items.  Gift options include 3, 6, and 12-month subscriptions.  They also offer a subscription just for the guys as well!

Julep: the best option for someone who loves nail polish.  While they do offer other beauty and makeup options, nail polish is their main focus.  You can choose how many months of boxes you wish to gift.

See one of my Julep reviews HERE.

BeautyFix:  This subscription tends to send mostly anti-aging skin care products, but they do include haircare and makeup as well.  Sometimes they will even send items like mirrors, eyelash curlers, etc.  This one costs a little more, but they do send more full-sized items, as well as high-end brands and each box will have a value over $100!  You can purchase a single box or sign up for a monthly subscription and cancel anytime.  It is $10 less per month with the subscription!

See one of my BeautyFix reviews HERE.

For The Foodie

Sun Basket:  a meal kit delivery service that sends a lot of organic foods.  I’ve tried this box several times and have been happy each time!  The food arrives cold and fresh and the meals are amazingly delicious!

See one of my Sun Basket reviews HERE.

Sun Basket 3 Meals Free
Blue Apron: a popular meal delivery service that I have also tried and highly recommend!  Again, the food arrived cold and fresh and the meals were great!  If your buying a meal delivery subscription for someone I’d take a peek at both sites upcoming menu’s to see which one might best fit the person you’re buying for.

See my Blue Apron review HERE.

Love with Food: this box is usually full of snack-type foods.  For every box purchased, they donate a meal to those in need!  They also offer a gluten-free subscription as well!  It’s been a while since I’ve gotten a box, but nothing ever goes to waste when I do!

See one of my Love with Food reviews HERE.

Get the Love With Food Black Friday Deal!

Winc:  this is a wine subscription box that chooses a selection of wines for the recipient based on a short questionnaire.  You can choose how many reds and whites you prefer each month, as well as the prince range you are comfortable with.  There are also many gift options available on the site.  Be sure to check that they can ship to the state your giftee lives in!

It’s unbelievable how many different subscription boxes there are out there now!  The one’s I have listed in this Subscription Box Gift Guide I have either personally tried myself or have read repeatedly good reviews on.  There are subscriptions just for children, bookworms, gamers, and so on that you are sure to be able to find something for everyone on your list!

Happy Holidays!

How to Make A Rustic Holiday Gift Basket

Lately, I am loving all things rustic.  I’ve been thinking about the upcoming holiday season and what to gift to friends and family members.  I thought it might be a good idea to put together a rustic holiday gift basket.  I love the way it turned out so much, I just had to share it!

How to Make A Rustic Holiday Gift Basket

Rustic Holiday Gift Basket

First, you need a basket in a size that will hold everything you are planning to put into it! I actually already had the basket.  I picked it up at a craft store, but you can find cute baskets almost anywhere!  I prefer to use the baskets with linings in them for gifts so nothing pokes out of the basket weave.

I added a few small boxes into the bottom and covered them with tissue paper so that my gifts would be more visible.

When deciding what I was going to put into the basket, I knew I wanted everything to have a feeling of home to it as well.  Here is what I included in my gift basket:

Rustic Holiday Gift Basket

Candles – I absolutely love candles and they always make a great gift!  Scents like vanilla, sugar, and apple scents totally give a rustic home vibe and are perfect for this time of year.  I removed the labels and added a chalkboard label with the scent written on it.

Two Cookbooks – farm to table cooking has been steadily growing in popularity.  I think it’s so popular because it reminds us of the way things used to be (and maybe even how they should be!).  Simple recipes from when times were simple.  Rustic and homey!  Food to Live By and Earthbound Cook are two of my favorites!

Rustic Holiday Gift Basket

Treats in Canning Jars – these canning jars are filled with homemade hot cocoa mix and nuts, but you can fill them with any small treat the person you’re gifting the basket to loves!  I just wrapped a little twine or ribbon around the jar to give it an even more rustic holiday touch!

Rustic Holiday Gift Basket

Ornaments – I love the rustic charm of these little ornaments.  These are small but made a great accent around the top of my basket.

Rustic Holiday Gift Basket

Scented Pine Cones – My oldest son and I found these in our neighborhood.  They make a great filler and keep the basket smelling of the holidays by putting a few drops of cinnamon essential oil onto each one.

Rustic Holiday Gift Basket

I arranged everything in the basket then tied a bow made from burlap and sheer white ribbon onto one side.  I used pine tree slices to make the name tag!  All I had to do was drill a hole in one edge to thread some twine through and wrote my message on one side and the recipient’s name on the other!

Rustic Holiday Gift Basket

You can put all kinds of things into a rustic winter holiday basket.  Some other ideas I thought about were dish towels, wood cutting boards, baking mixes, and candle holders.  I even saw rusted jingle bells and thought they would look so cute hanging over the side of the basket, but refrained since the baby and the dog would probably go nuts over them!

Do you have any other gift ideas to include in a rustic holiday gift basket?  I’d love for you to share them in the comments!  Thank you so much for stopping by!
