What a fun post of gift ideas! I love your photos, especially the first one with the pink packages!
Thank you, I’m glad you enjoyed it!
Thanks for this post! I’ve been meaning to try reading that Matthew Kepnes book. Thanks for the recommendation.
You’re welcome, it’s a great book!
The jewelry organizer is a great idea! I honestly just leave my jewelry at home because I don’t want to bother packing it, so I’d definitely appreciate having that so I could take some with me!
I am the same way! The less the better in my opinion, but sometimes it is nice to have that stuff, especially if you are going out someplace nice. Having a way to organize it makes it much easier!
These are such perfect travel gifts! I will have to get some!
They are great and they make traveling much easier and less stressful!
Pinning this for my holiday shopping (and for myself 😂)!
