Holiday Gift Guide 2015: The Creative

LifeShannon GuerreroComment

1. Henna Tattoos Kit - $24
2. A Beautiful Mess Photo Idea Book - $14.64
3. Music Branches Headphone Splitter - $10
4. Triangle Catch-All Dish - $8
5. Fujifilm Instax Instant Smartphone Printer - $199
6. 642 Tiny Things to Draw - $9.95
7. Mozzarella & Ricotta Kit - $25 (or Burratta & Mascarpone)
8. Poketo Olive Wood Pen - $12


And the gift giving continues.  If you need any help finding gifts for a creative person in your life, this is your guide. As a graphic designer, I can safely say, I want all of this, especially the cheese making kit, but that really has nothing to do with the fact that I'm a creative.  I could live off of cheese.  Seriously.

Also, I couldn't help it. i tried keeping this post under $35 like the trendsetter and hostess lists, but I had to include the Fujifilm Instax Instant Smartphone Printer.  Printing pictures straight from your phone is life-changing.  Alright, alright, maybe not life-changing, but you get the point.  Realistically, if you didn't have one (or your friends, who you're supposed to be buying this for), would you actually print any of the thousands of pictures stored on your phone?  Everything else is super affordable, though, so get on it!

Happy first day of the last month of the year! It's that time to start thinking about calendars for 2016!  Or maybe that's just me?  Organization is probably one of my favorite past times which is probably why i have a couple of planners each year.  Well, that could be more because I'm extremely indecisive and these planners are ALL so freaking cute.  I already have 2 Sugar Paper x Target planners and I'm still debating which of these I want.  I keep telling myself I going to return one.  Sometimes you need a planner for work, home, and your purse.  Or maybe that's not a thing?  Also, there are still a few on sale, so that makes it all ok, right?

Hopefully, you can pick one way more easily than I could.  Happy December!
