Free Christmas Gift & Holiday Planner!

Okay, some of you may be thinking it’s a little early in the year for this, but with my small budget and my large gift list it’s never too early to get started on holiday planning! Between my five kiddos, my parents, my best friend and gift exchange parties at work I have a lot of people to buy Christmas gifts for. That’s not even considering the neighbors, the mail lady, the kids’ teachers, and all the other people I can’t remember right now! If I don’t start thinking about this stuff early then my entire budget is blown for months. That’s why I REALLY need a Christmas Planner and I thought it’d be awesome to share these super holiday strategies with you.

Hilarious Gift Ideas for Co-Workers & Office Parties

Our annual office holiday party is always a riot and we all enjoy participating in a “Dirty Santa” gift exchange where everyone brings a wrapped gift (usually a max of $20), we draw numbers to see who gets to pick first and the next people in line can either “steal” an already opened gift (up to twice per gift or it might never end) or choose another wrapped gift. It’s hilarious when everyone wants to steal the same gift and super fun to see what everyone brings. Sometimes it’s pretty obvious when people are re-gifting something they’d really like to get rid of and there are always the usual gift cards and alchohol gift sets, but the best ones are the funny but useful gifts that everyone wants to fight over so I pulled together this list of my favorite amusing gift ideas for co-workers and office parties.

DIY Vanilla Mint Lip Balm

DIY Vanilla Mint Lip Balm

If you are new to making lip balm, the first thing you should know is that it really isn’t as hard as you may think! It also isn’t time consuming either and one great perk is you can save a lot of money by doing it yourself. If you have a good, natural base, then once you’ve made your own lip balm a few times, you will feel confident in changing the flavors and ingredients for them with no problem. This recipe has a good base which comes out nice and smooth and then with the addition of a great spearmint essential oil and vanilla extract you’ll have a perfect flavor combination.
