Just because gifts

Posted on Wednesday, June 1


Have you ever received something that was just so thoughtful?

As I get older, I find that the best presents I get are the ones that come at the most unexpected times — flowers, chocolate almonds, cookies, a hammer (which I really, really needed after using my boots for a while).

So for my first post, I want to share the top presents I have given (and get) for no reason at all. I do it just because.

"Just Because" gift giving happens every day, all around us, and mostly between people with the closest relationships. Just last week, I treated my friend to a manicure just to thank her for being a constant supporter. I am a bonafide "just because" gift getter. Most of the presents are under $25, but no matter the present, I always add my stamp to it — pink gift wrap/box/bag or a handwritten note on pink paper.

Enjoy!

Spaceman USB Light
$20
Thank you gift to my friend Jon, who really likes anything space related. This is very specific to his personality, but it's also a best-seller at the MOMA.


Magnolia Bakery Cookies
starts at $12
It's a staple for me. Whoever it is that I'm coming home to at the end of the day has a good chance of getting this. BUT If I am picking this up for someone my kids always get these by default ☺.


Whole Foods Flowers
starts at $10
A quick stop for a bunch of flowers sends the perfect "TOU" message. My choice, Whole Foods market for a single flower, peonies in this case or the Whole Trade Guarantee Arrangement w/Mason Jar.


Wine
starts at $7.99
This is the grown-up version of cookies ☺. I get this for just about anyone for so many varying reasons. It could be for a day out in the sun with your best girlfriend to catch-up & gossip or for my neighbor who just cleaned my driveway (true story).
