Gifts are my love language, giving and receiving them. I love finding something personal for the special people in my life. A Creative gift is even better!
This year I have a very special girl in my life who has taught me many life lessons. She has shown me that no matter the mistakes we make, we can overcome them. Heather has grown into such a wonderful young lady over the last year. I am blessed to have her and her daughter in our lives. I really wanted to make sure Heather feels extra loved on this holiday season.

Walgreens' gift guide #shop

I was flipping through the Walgreens’ Happy and Healthy Holiday Guide in the mail and was inspired for a little gift for Heather. The holiday guide was showing a cute little mug paired with coffee. I thought it was a great gift, functional but fun.

Heather loves coffee, but I do not think she makes it often at home. I do know that she loves to bake. I stopped into Walgreens to grab a few items to gift Heather for her holiday baking. I purchased cookie mix and a spatula. Now the fun part was wrapping the gift. Yes, anyone can use wrapping paper. Yes, Walgreens carries tons of wrapping paper, and they are super cute. But, I wanted to make her whole gift usable. I purchased a Christmas kitchen towel and a cute flower hair clip to wrap her gift in.

I thought I would show you a quick tutorial on how I wrapped my gift:
I folded the towel in 3rds lengthwise.

I folded the towel up and tucked in it.

Using some scrap twine I secured the items nice and tight.

I used the flower clip as the “bow”. I kept the colors to red, black and white; elegant but still youthful!

I may have picked up more items for the rest of the people on my list. The Walgreens’ Happy & Healthy Holiday Guide gave me lots of ideas for the men in my life. I am not sure about you, but they are the hardest to buy for.
