It’s that time of year again! Time for packing the shopping malls in search of the perfect gift for that perfect guy. Easier said than done of course. Well, I’m always here to help you with your shopping trip. Today, is a special feature for a great site called GroovyGuyGifts.com and yes, they’re really GREAT gifts!
This is the perfect gift for the guy who probably already has everything. With this personalized touch, he’ll be glad to show this off to everyone! The set features a shot glass and your choice of a knife or multi-tool that comes in a keepsake wooden box. All of which can be engraved.
I personally, opted to receive the shot glass and multi-tool not engraved, only because I was unsure of what to put on it. (Of course, totally regretting it now…just means I need to make a purchase for myself in the coming months.)
Speaking of other items, Groovy Guy Gifts has lots of cool items and great groomsmen gifts for those in wedding planning mode.
This wooden bottle opener can be engraved for everyone in your crew! Find it here: Snap A Cap
Full disclosure: I was given the opportunity to pick an item from the site, have it engraved and sent to me.
If you aren’t fast enough, you’ll miss it! And missed it I did.
One of my faves, Sophia Webster teamed up with Puma for another fantasy-filled-glitter-extravaganza that dropped this week!
All I wanted was this $550 varsity jacket in a XXL but of course it’s ALREADY sold out *super bummed face*. At least my credit card gets a break and my wallet gets a win! If you’re NOT a 2X, all other sizes are still available and I’m uber jealous…just kidding, get it girl!
All of the boots featured ARE available in wide calf.
So if you’re looking for a wide calf boot, simply click any link and you’re good to go! Remember prices may down during certain sales so be sure to watch the stores (and their websites) for falling prices on boots.
Are there any other fall finds that you’ve spied recently?
Every time Valentine’s Day rolls around, people in relationships are hit with a dilemma: What am I going to get him or her for Valentine’s Day?!
If you aren’t asking yourself this question, congratulations, you are free to spend all your monies on yourself!
Maybe I’ll get around to a wonderful post on self-spending…oops…self-love.
In the meantime, let’s look around at gifts for our significant others.
The title of this post is not misleading, as you know, here at Curves And Coffee, I try to cover ALL spending levels. If you have $20 or less to spend or you’re balling out of control and spending upwards of $500 or more…I’ve got you covered! Below, you’ll find gifts for any girlfriend, boyfriend, spouse, or significant other in just about every category.
This is kind of a two-fer…for both him AND her! It can also just be worn for just yourself…a day or night when you just want to sleep sexily. If you haven’t checked out their complete Valentine’s Day Cacique collection, please do! If I could get every single sexy piece of lingerie, I would in a heartbeat!
Perfect for the amateur photographer or anyone who loves taking selfies. This camera is an update to the instant Polaroid of the “old days.” It instantly prints out the pics you take on a mini scale film. Bonus: it comes in different colors so your fashion forward significant other will love it even more!
Another versatile Valentine’s Day gift for him or her. A custom baseball jersey for your significant other would be a great way to cheer on their team before the MLB season gets underway. You can also get their favorite player if you don’t want to go the custom route or if you’re running short on time.
Everyone knows someone who wouldn’t mind an aged Scotch (well, I’m guessing here a tad but a lover of spirits will love this for sure!) Shock them with this gift and beautiful bottle for his bar. There’s also a great back story about the Chivas Brothers to go along with this brand. Be sure to sneak that into the gift-giving.
OK, let’s be real…you know she’s the boss but now everyone else can know it too! These are so very close to the $500 price tag that once you add tax + shipping (unless it’s free). You’ll get several frequent flyer miles on your card after this purchase!
Show her and tell her just how you feel with this gorgeous necklace. She’ll be glad you did!
Caribbean Cruise $Cost Will Vary
Because, who wouldn’t want to get away for a couple of days and hide from winter?! Count me in! Also, someone take me on a cruise! Let’s all pack up and enjoy lots of sunshine (with sunscreen of course) have some cocktails and forget about everything except your cabin key! I didn’t pick a particular brand or cruise line simply because everyone has their own preferences and that choice is best left up to you, the buyer. Before you cruise, do your due diligence in research…my favorite cruise site is Cruise Critic, check them out and read the forums for tons of cruising tips.
What a wonderful list of Valentine’s Day gifts, right?!
As always, if you do shop and buy something from any of my lists, drop me a line to let me know!
Despite what it feels like outside, it is actually November…MID-NOVEMBER!
Eventually, we will need a winter coat. Trust me on this. Being from Michigan, I love the fall season but I’m dreading the day we see our first frost. The best thing we can do now is to be prepared!
Whenever those winter chill elements decide to hit us in the face, I’m here to provide a little help with your coat shopping. Finding the perfect outerwear to keep us warm can be task but don’t let that overwhelm you. You want to find a jacket or coat that you’re comfortable in, that you can actually move in and of course one that will keep you warm. In short, you want a coat to function, fit well, and look absolutely fabulous in!
Below, I picked out several options for both style and the elements! There are jackets/coats that will keep you warm if you’re out when the sun goes down with the temp and jackets that will wrap you in warmth if it happens to snow.
The first row of jackets (and one vest) are for those days when the chill isn’t quite chilly enough. Perfect for the days when you need to run errands but the wind may be a tad brisk. Shop these great items by clicking below…bonus…some of these buys are ON SALE! Hurry!
For the second row of coats, these will definitely keep you warm when the wind decides to make your eyes water. These buys can last through fall all the way through the winter snowstorms. These are also on sale so head on over and pick one up!
Have you seen Lane Bryant’s new ad campaign that was unveiled last week during New York Fashion Week?!
In case you haven’t, here’s the commercial spot below!
The campaign is called Plus Is Equal and that’s pretty bad ass!
So whenever you’re using social media to get out your shopping and fashion frustration just hash tag that #PlusIsEqual and get your point across with ease! I could spend hours writing about this epic moment and make it the longest post ever but I’ll spare you guys…today.
That’s right! Mother’s Day is Sunday May 10, 2015 and it’ll be here before you know it!
Mother’s only get one “special” day a year, can you believe that? Absolutely egregious if you ask me!
I’m not a mom (don’t you dare ask me about having kids…not happening, anywho…) I have the absolute greatest mom ever put on earth. Everyone says that but I truly mean it! She’s been with me during the hardest times of my life and always willing to be silly when we need a laugh.
That being said, moms deserve to be celebrated year round! So consider this a guide for the perfect gift that’ll bring the biggest smile to your moms face. Not to mention, a gift that will last more than one day! Below you’ll find Mother’s Day gift ideas for all price ranges. This should help you find the perfect gift for the special lady in your life.
Gift cards may seem like an easy way out but in actuality they are the best thing for the recipient. It allows your mom to spend it any way she likes and you won’t even need a gift receipt!
Stores that offer more than one brand or type of item is a great place to purchase a gift card, that way someone can get multiple “gifts” and they won’t feel the pressure to spend it all at once. A mother’s day treat because it’s the gift that keeps on giving!
Jewelry, of course, is a personal fave.
A mom can never have too many sparkly things, especially when those things are glittering gold or silver and maybe diamonds!
With tons of sales celebrating the start of spring and pre-Mother’s Day sales, jewelry is definitely within a reasonable grab for shoppers of all price ranges.
1. Ribbon Letter Monogram Necklace ~ $145 ~ Bauble Bar
4. Kendra Scott Oval Statement Earrings ~ $60 ~ Nordstrom
The key to buying jewelry is to “Keep It Simple”…yes, it’s really that easy! Huge statement pieces are trending at the moment but if you want your mom to have something sparkly that she can wear regardless of the season, remember to find jewelry that has a classic look that can be worn with just about everything in her closet.
As with many special occasions, flowers and fruit baskets are great options too!
The flowers won’t last a lifetime and the fruit might not make it through the day but mom is sure to love them and that’s all that matters.
Think of giving a gift basket that has more than sweet edible nibbles such as a coffee lovers basket which includes a mug and coffee press. Find them at 1-800-Baskets&1-800-Flowers or get creative and make your own…just stay away from the uncooked macaroni!
By now, you should have the hang of shopping for mom…simple, classic, and timeless are your go-to keywords. Those words go out the window if you know your mom and understands that she likes getting different kinds of gifts or perhaps not even wanting a gift at all. Just remember if you’re ordering a gift, be sure to place that order soon or you won’t have it delivered in time. You definitely don’t want her to think you forgot about her on this special day.
