Good evening guys,

(post contains affilaite links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

it is my first gift guide of the year 2020 today and to be honest I wasn´t as excited as the years before. The whole pandemic stuff puts such a damper on my usual Christmas excitement. I am trying very hard to get out of my funk and hopefully with Christmas everywhere around I will be normal again. 

I always try to include extraordinary gift guides for you guys as there are thousands out there and many are similar. Going to link last years ideas for you at the end of every gift guide post so you can eventually find what you are looking for.

Almost everybody has a hobby cook in the family. The one person who tries out new recipes on the daily and invites you over to test menus and other delicous treats. Wouldn´t it be nice to gift this particular person in your circle something really great. Just think about it. The next test person will definitely be you.

Hi guys,

my last gift guide went live today. It is for “her” and I think it turned out great. Of course this one is probably perfect for me cause I love every single item in it (just a little hint). It goes from affordable to high class pieces and also has some inbetween so I think this really is a great mixture. 


The Tori Burch Gemini tote is available in so many color pairings and in my opinion you can never go wrong with a classic shaped bag.The other thing which is definitely a hit is a super soft and luxe looking pullover in a creme color. A total closet staple and with the current oversized trend it is way easier to get a fitting piece.

Another perfect gift – if the girl is a coffee or tea lover – would be this beautiful Kate Spade travel mug. The traveller of your family would probably appreciate a piece of luggage most. This one is available in 12 colors so what you need is a color the person loves and your are good to go.


You see gifting isn´t as difficult or as expensive as many think. Just take 5 minutes for each before you head to a store and think about what people love or do. Might be enough already.


Hope you are all having a nice week so far. I am so happy the holidays are ahead and I have two weeks of cause I am just so exhausted every day. 


Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

Hi guys,

Christmas time is gift set time and gift sets are something I love. They are always designed so beautiful with so much love and from year to year I can´t decide which ones to take so I am always having too much. This year I have broken it down to a total of five. All under 20 € and for different people in your life. 
I love their products and usually use one line at a time. Last year the Happy Buddha gift set was given to me (I had used the Sakura before) and I found a new favorite. There are always sample sizes innside of all the products the linie includes. Great to try and find out your favorites and I am also always saving the boxes cause they are just the prettiest. 
Perfect for – mom, grandma, sister, collegue, girl friend, mother-in-law, stocking stuffer

This is a set I thought looked really cool cause of the wooden print outside. It has a tart scent and is a two in one which is prefered by a lot of men (also by mine) cause it is way more practical than using two different things – oh boy!. I think it was under 10€.
Perfect for – hubby, dad, brother, granddad, collegue, minimalist, stocking stuffer
I have seen this and absolutely fell in love cause it is just the cutest. The pink packaging, the cute miniature products and the Eifel Tower – sold. This is perfect if you have someone who wants to try out luxury products first before buying them. This would also make a great gift if you have a teenager in your family which just starts using make-up or even just for yourself.
Perfect for –  sister, beauty lover, girl friend, stocking stuffer

I wanted to have this for myself but I also got a second one cause I think this is a set you get one of the best deals with in drug store products. It costs 12 € and has a value of  16 € so in fact you get one of the products for free and all the original sizes.
Perfect for everyone who loves vanilla.

This set includes the top three popular nail colors of 2017 which I think is not bad at all. You have a choice and are always on trend by wearing one these. It really is nice to have the smaller size to try them out before spending a lot on the normal size. This would be perfect for a beauty and make-up lover in your family or among your friends.

You see there are great gift sets for a reasonable price out there which also make the gift receiver happy and you don´t have to spend a fortune on presents.

I hope that helped a little. I have listed some more sets in the widget below. Each and everyone 20€ or under. Have fun shopping and even more fun gifting.

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

How to enjoy Christmas time and not getting stressed out….

…..

Hi guys,
(post contains affiliate links / Werbung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links)
I know that Christmas time puts a lot of pressure on each and every one of us. There is the decoration we have to set up, gifts we need to find, there are family or holiday parties to host and menues to plan and don´t forget to send out the Christmas cards in time!!
 Thinking of all these different things might be overwhelming at first but you have to tackle it piece by piece and for the time in between I have 4 tips/activites to lower your stress levels and give you the possibilitiy to really enjoy the most wonderful time of the year.

#1
Grab a cup of hot cocoa, head to your sofa and turn on Netflix. They have so many Christmas movies on their channel. You will get in the festive mood believe me and it is also nice to cuddle up while it´s cold outside.
My favorites are:

A Christmas Prince
The Spirit of Christmas
The Grinch
A Christmas Kiss
Merry Kissmas
The Nightmare before Christmas
Miracle on 34th Street


#2
Be sure to create your own and unique Christmas playslist. Listening to your favorite Christmas songs whenever you like really is a nice change to the normal radio (in my opinion they chat to much and always play the same songs). You can listen to your playlist while driving in the car, wrapping presents or cooking and cleaning at home.
Be sure to check out my playlist for some inspo.

                                                                    

#3
Bake the Christmas cookies YOU love the most. As a woman we always try to please others and care about others more than about ourself. That´s just how it works but sometimes there is something you have to do for your own especially in stressful times. Search the recipe you love the most and start baking and if these are some your family members or room mates don´t like – good for you, so there is even more left.
Here is my favorite recipe. They are called snowflake cookies and super delicious. 

#4
Visit Christmas markets
The Christmas markets are everywhere these days so it is nice to spend an afternoon or an evening strolling around. Having some punch and some delicious food. Maybe you can find a last minute gift at the booths with all the pretty handmade things like wooden figurines or handcolored candles. 


It is good to unwind before the big day hits. 


We are going to visit a Christmas market on Sunday and I am also going to bake my favorite Christmas cookies tomorrow listening to my Christmas playlist. 

Do you have any other tips to lay back before the stressful three days of Christmas?

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
