Under $55 {+ a Group Gift Idea} Christmas Gift Guide for Him

I feel like the guys in our lives are the hardest to shop for sometimes! If you don't know much about the specific tools or equipment their hobbies involve, it can be hard to buy exactly what they like. To be honest, Wes usually has an idea of what I'm getting him because he sends me links to the tools or hunting gear he wants. ;) I try to get him a little something that is a surprise as well. ;)

I rounded up some Christmas gift ideas that could fit any kind of guy! I have seen several of these products before, and love these shops. Meaningful and personalized gifts are always winners for dads, husbands, boyfriends, brothers, grandfathers, uncles, or friends!

Almost all of these ideas are under $55! The exception is the Watercolor Home Portrait. I added it in anyways because its a favorite for Christmas, and a great gift to go in on with siblings or friends!

Scroll down for product links!


I love supporting other small businesses and makers! Many shops are hold big sales this weekend, so be sure to read the "shop announcements" of your favorite shops for coupon codes. ;) 

Happy Shopping!

Under $50 {+ a Group Gift Idea} Christmas Gift Guide for Her

I rounded up some of my favorite Christmas gift ideas for Her to share! I have ordered from most of these Etsy shops before, and loved these products. I love giving meaningful, pretty, and personal gifts  for friends, sisters and moms. 

Almost all of these ideas are under $50! The exception is the Watercolor Home Portrait. I added it in anyways because its a favorite for Christmas, and a great gift to go in on with siblings or friends!

Scroll down for product links!



I love supporting other small businesses and makers! A tip to keep in mind: many small shop owners make their products themselves and can sell out quickly during the holiday rush. So, if you're looking at ideas from etsy or other handmade products order early! ;) 

Happy Shopping!

Our Experience with Puppies for Rent

 


We recently found out about Puppies for Rent and just had to try it! Puppies delivered to you to play with by the hour? Yes please! Our sister in law who loves pups has a birthday coming up, and we were looking for the right gift, so this was perfect timing! 





Here's how it works:

You can choose to rent one or more puppies by the hour. You pick from available date and time slots and specify where within the delivery radius you'd like the puppies delivered. Someone from Puppies for Rent will meet you with the puppies and everything they need! Then, the puppies are yours to love on until your time is up!


The Goal:
The goal of Puppies for Rent is to find homes for the puppies they take in. Renting pups is a great way to see if you are good fit for adoption. The puppies are in foster homes until they are adopted. Puppies for Rent has helped find homes for over 250 dogs! Its a great cause! 


Our Experience:
Our experience was awesome! Puppies for Rent was so easy to work with. We had 2 puppies delivered right to the park we were at with our family. It worked perfectly for a surprise! 


The puppies we got to play with were just the sweetest. One was a border collie/husky mix, and the other border collie/austrailian shepherd. We were given leashes, a toy, and potty bags for them. They were little enough to stay right by us and play in the grass. Puppies for Rent also offers to have someone stay with your or to rent a puppy gate if you'd prefer. 


This was such a fun way to spend the afternoon and worked perfectly as a gift. It was nice to have something to do outdoors that you don't get to do everyday. Its a perfect way to get your puppy fix if you don't have a dog, or if you just can't get enough puppy loving time! 


I love the idea of renting a puppy if you're looking for a dog to join your family. Its a great way to see if different breeds would be a good fit for you, and possibly even meet the perfect match to adopt!







Josy's face when they tried to lick her cracks me up!











Joslynne loves animals but gets a little scared of larger dogs still. This was perfect for her!






She loved cuddling this little pup! (Don't mind my backwards necklace! The fact that it looks right in the mirror gets me every time! ;)



I would definitely recommend Puppies for Rent whether its just for an afternoon activity, or if you're looking for a puppy to call your own. We can't wait to rent our next pup!

Fall Family Photos

We were so excited to have our first professional photos taken as a family of 3 this fall! Wes drove up the canyon in our town to look for spot to do the photos. I LOVE the place he chose. We had to do a little hiking and got our feet wet, but it was so fun! We love that our photographer Misty D Photography was all for the little adventure. 

We adore how the photos came out! We will always treasure these. I love having Joslynne's expressions captured at this stage!

I've been eyeing this lace accent top from PinkBlush for a while. The lace detail on the maternity dress I wore for our maternity photos got me hooked! The ivory color is perfect to wear for any season, I love how it worked with gold and denim for a Fall vibe. 



































Thank you Misty D Photography for these precious memories!
