Holiday season is in full swing, folks! Surprise, I’m excited. Maybe a little too excited but I can’t help it. For whatever reason, I am feeling that holiday spirit hard core this year. I may or may not have thrown my tree up weeks ago. And that’s okay. I also may or may not have started my gift shopping weeks ago…that, too, is okay. I think.
As much as I love shopping, I think my favorite part about gifting season is creating that personalized, unique “moment” for the receiver. I don’t just throw the gift in a bag and call it a day. I seriously love coming up with fun ways to “present” the present. Check out a few of my tips below along with my new favorite gift idea (hint: it’s natural + nourishing + exclusive to Target. So yeah, it’s a good one)
Tips for Creating the Perfect Gifting Moment
- Head to Target. That is all. I kid you not, you can find everything you need – gifts, supplies, treats to fuel your gift wrapping marathon – everything.
- Grab the perfect gift. Whether you’re all about beauty + skincare, in the search of natural beauty products, looking for a last minute gift idea, or just a hardcore Target fan like me, the Burt’s Bees gift sets are the perfect solution for all of your holiday gifting needs. After perusing the beauty aisle a few weeks ago, I picked up the Naturally Soft Hands and Face Essentials Burt’s Bees gift sets and actually had to go back for more (to Target because, obviously, and because the sets are exclusive to their stores!) because they seriously make the perfect gifts (think co-workers, blogging besties, stocking stuffers…the list goes on).
- Find your unique wrapping style. Now that you have the perfect gift, don’t settle for a brown bag and white tissue paper. Do more, girl! This year I am all about the neutrals and metallics with unexpected textures. I went with a black + white + gold theme with subtle pops of blush and mint green. Not only did I focus on the colors but I wanted to play around with the presentation of the gifts. Check out two super easy wrapping styles below!
- Have fun with it! My number one piece of advice is to just have fun with the whole gift-giving experience. Whether it’s creating adorable gift wrap or picking out the perfect Burt’s Bees gift set, just have fun with it and keep the other person in mind. After All, you’re doing all of this for them and it’s kind of amazing to see the look on their face when you give them a completely customized gift!

So now that you know how to create the perfect gifting moment, all you have to do is head out and buy the perfect gift. I can’t say it enough – a gift set is always such a great way to go. They’re easy + functional and still give you the opportunity to pull together a personal experience. There’s a good chance I’m heading back to Target one more time (more like 5x) to pick up a few more of the Burt’s Bees gift sets because I don’t think my friends will be able to get enough. I’m also thinking this could be a fun little party favor for my holiday party next week! And guess what, in addition to the exclusive gift sets, Burts Bees has a ton more gift set options to check out at Target!
