Gifts For The People In My Life (Maybe You Know Someone Like Them) - Gift Guide


When I'm doing my Christmas shopping, I always come across gifts that would be perfect for someone I know, but which, for one reason or another, I end up not getting them. In the "Gifts For The People In My Life (Maybe You Know Someone Like Them) - Gift Guide", I share those finds, so maybe they can make the perfect gift for someone you know.

A gift for: My boyfriends' sister Gretchen
Age: 19
Profile: When I met her, she was an alternative teenager. I have seen her with hair in all colors of the rainbow. She was much like I was at her age. She still likes quirky and fun jewelry. I love shopping for her, because I like things just like that.


A gift for: My soon to be born Nephew
Age: Minus one month
Profile: So he isn't born yet, but by the time it's Christmas, my sister will be 8 months pregnant, and I just can't resist looking for baby cuteness!


This gift will have to wait until next year though, because I don't even know his name yet!

A gift for: My dad
Age: 48
Profile: My dad is quite the handyman. He loves making things, especially around the house. Other things he enjoys are going on Holidays and walking in the mountains with my mom. He is also a very tidy and organized person, he hates mess!


A gift for: My Mom
Age: 59
Profile: She might be 59, but my mom certainly doesn't dress like a typical 59 year old (whatever that might be), she likes bright and bold colors in her clothing and colorful or large accessories, and is always looking for the perfect bag. She loves traveling, walking in the mountains, cooking, photography & filming and editing the things she created.

Pretty Packages

Over the past few years I have changed the packaging for my shop a dozen times. I always want it to be safer, and to look better, prettier and more professional. When I started out, all I used were ziplock bags, no bag toppers, no boxes, nothing! I realised that wasn't the way to go though.

New Packaging

After trying out different ways to pack my products, this is what my packaging looks like now.

I used to only have small cotton filled boxes, and bulkier items, like rings didn't fit in. I used pillow boxes for those items, but it turns out they can get squished during shipment, breaking the items inside. Now I have cotton filled boxes in all kinds of sizes, so all items can be sent safely.

New Packaging

New Packaging

The round stickers are also new. I got them at Vistaprint.

New Packaging

I also got some little cards printed for necklace packaging. I had bigger cards before, but I never used them, as I use small bubble envelopes, and the cards barely fit in. These little ones make much more sense, and I think they look so cute & professional!

New Packaging

New Packaging

If you are a shop owner, how do you pack & ship your items? And if you are a shopper, what do you think is most important about packaging? Do you just want your purchases to arrive safely, or do you care about the way it looks too?
