I’ve mentioned a few times before how much I love subscription boxes.  It might be one of my favorite concepts in recent years.  It’s kind of like buying a grab bag at a sale – you don’t know what’s going to be inside, but you’re excited to find out.

GlobeIn Subscription Boxes Filled with Artisan Crafts

One of the newest subscription boxes that I’ve recently become aware of is GlobeIn.  GlobeIn boxes are filled with unique artisan crafts from all over the world that are then delivered to your door once a month.  Each box contains up to three specially handcrafted items, and you get to pick the category: jewelry, decor, or home accessories.

I received Eiffel Tower Jewelry as inspiration for my post. All thoughts and words are my own.

There’s always at least one person on my list each year that is kind of hard to shop for.  Whether they’re the person that has everything, or they say they don’t need anything, or the kids are kind of at an in-between age where they’re too old for toys but too young for just clothes and “adult” stuff.  You still want to get them something memorable and special, but what?

My mother-in-law sometimes falls on that “what do I get her?” list.  Sometimes she’ll mention something new she’d love to have, and that’s helpful.  Other times I sit and think and think and think and still come up dry.  But not this year!

Korbella Eiffel Tower Jewelry Made from Pieces of the Actual Eiffel Tower

My in-laws love to travel and last year they did a tour and cruise in Europe.  One of the places they had the chance to visit was Paris, France.  They even brought up back a beautiful candle that commemorates the building.  So when I found Korbella, a company that makes Eiffel Tower jewelry, I knew it would be the perfect gift for my MIL.

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Rubbermaid Bento Organizers but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #HolidayBento http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO.

Are you done your holiday shopping yet?  Not me!  I feel so behind this year, because normally right about now I’m just crossing a stocking stuffer or two off my list to finish up, but this year I’m not even 50% done.

I found myself shopping at Target the other day, trying to knock a few things off of Ashley’s wish list.  She’s already secured a teaching job, so after graduation in the spring, she’ll be moving a few hours away where she’ll have her very first apartment.  Target gift cards were on her list as she knows they carry lots of great items for home decoration and storage plus items to stock her kitchen.

Rubbermaid Bento Organizers at Target #HolidayBento #PMedia

While wandering around the home department I came across the Rubbermaid Bento Organizers.  I was immediately drawn to their design; we have a chair with a similar pattern.  After taking a few minutes to examine them more closely, I was also impressed with the actual construction.  The interior pockets flex to accommodate the items, letting you create just the right size and shape compartments for what you’re storing.

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

I have always loved wandering around inside of Best Buy, especially around the holidays.  Nearly everything technology- and appliance-related can be found under one roof.  And when you visit one of their 1,400+ locations you get to actually play with the items and get hands-on experience before making a purchase.

There’s also lots of help to answer whatever questions you may have.  Blue Shirts and Geek Squad Agents are highly trained, knowledgeable and impartial so they can help ensure you get the perfect gifts for your family and friends – and yourself!  In years past I’ve asked them quite a few questions – about TV size, PC specs, etc. – and they were always able to point me in the right direction.

I received product samples from Treat in exchange for sharing this information.  All words and opinions are my own.

As I’ve mentioned a few times, I’ve always loved personalized photo cards, especially for the holidays.  Usually, though, you have to purchase those cards in packs of 10, 25, 50, or more.  So what do you do if you want personalized photo cards that are specific to each recipient?

Well, you visit Treat’s holiday card collection. With treat you can order individual cards, yet personalize each one.  Make one for Mom and Dad, one for your BFF, one from the kiddos for Papaw and Grammy, and one each for your kids’ teachers. Continue reading »
