Printable Cheesy Gift Wrap

by Alix Sorrell

As someone who is obsessed with cheese, I was REALLY excited to find out October 9th is National Moldy Cheese Day! Moldy or not, these wrappers are the perfect way to dress up that hunk of cheese you were planning on bringing to a dinner party or giving away as a small (and cheesy) thank you gift! You can print out the labels on Sticker Paper or regular paper. Punch out the labels with a 1.5 inch punch to seal your wrap. You’re friends will be impressed with such a professional cheese-monger presentation!

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

What are you getting your mom for Mother’s Day? If you’ve waited until the last minute, don’t worry! There are tons of great gift options online. I found all the gifts below using Chippmunk – my favorite site for online deals. They also have tons of fantastic deals on flowers and chocolates! Normally, I wouldn’t think to use a coupon when buying gifts, but I’ve realized that saving money allows me to add a few more items to the cart and spoil the ones I love. Make sure you don’t miss their online deals at Rifle Paper Co., J.Crew, Teleflora, & Dean & Deluca!

Golden Tote Christmas Gifts

I just got my December Golden Tote and I think this service is genius. I tried out their site a few months ago while I was in a clothing rut and fell in love with the whole process. You know that panic stricken feeling you get when you realize you have a bunch of things to go to and you don’t have a ton of options to wear? That happened last week and all of a sudden my Golden Tote showed up (true story!) Basically, you pick out a few clothing items from their site and fill out a style profile, Golden Tote will send them the items they picked along with a few surprise pieces chosen by a stylist. I picked out this white sweater and a cute vest, but the stylists also sent me a pretty dress and some perfect sweaters that I’ve already worn a ton. This would make such a great gift for my sister or a friend!

10 Experiences to Give

Last year I did a post on 10 experiences to give instead of stuff. There are studies that say people get more joy out of an experience than something they own. The experiences don’t have to be expensive. Sometimes it can be as simple as reserving a $25 camp site. (ps: Coincidentally we are headed to Seattle next week and we found $75 train tickets.) A coastal train trip would be a cool adventure to give! I’ll report back afterwards on how it went. I hope it looks snowy and beautiful, like this.

See all 10 experiences to give right here. Have you ever given or received an experience? I would like to eat at The French Laundry and Camp at Kirby Cove and take Sailing Lessons.
