Holiday gift guide

Holidays are getting closer and closer, and of course we all want to say ‘Thank you’ to the people that have been there for us all year long, by giving them a nice gift! But buying gifts isn’t always easy especially holiday ones. I personally don’t like giving advice to people about what they should buy, because every person is individual and special, but than I realized I’m usually lost and I need a little guide to help me out. Those are some of my ideas, but you can customize them to your liking. I tried to come up with good and cute, present ideas, that won’t ask for a lot of time and money. I hope you’ll like them 🙂

Gift guide for her

Tip no.1:

Be careful with age! This is a basic one, but it’s worth of mentioning. You gift should be in accordance with the age of person you’re giving the gift. You can’t buy same gift to 10 year old and 30 year old person! A lot of people are assure they’re sticking to this, and somehow they make mistakes, so pay attention 🙂

Tip no.2:

You know that your friend’s/ mum’s / aunt’s beauty product is running out, so be the one to refill her stock! This is a great gift idea and you can go wrong with this.If you noticed that she constantly uses certain beauty product and really loves it, that’s great chance to use the opportunity to be good ‘gift giver’! Just be careful, that she hasn’t already bought a new package and you need to be 100% sure about product you’re buying.

Tip no.3: Matching jewelry

‘Jewls are the girl’s best friend!’ Every woman likes jewel, from gold and diamonds, to simple knitted bracelets. Now, since this is a pretty basic idea, I come up with a way to be a bit more creative. The trick is to get matching jewelry. For example, buy your mum a pair of earrings, and the same ones to yourself just in different color. This way, she will always remember of you when she’ll put them on. You are somehow connected. Plus it looks cool when you and someone close, show up with same but still different stuffs! Friendship bracelets are great idea too, especially for teenagers! If you are buying something like this, I would recommend to  check out @nv.bracelets. Their bracelets are so cute and colorful, and the best thing is they are not very expensive (#glamonbuget) and shipping is very fast! Now, I am not sure are they doing a worldwide shipping, but feel free to ask the, in DM on their instagram profile here. Responding won’t take long at all and the service is so kind. Now, you and your friend can be connected no matter where you are.

Also, be careful and creative with picking a piece of jewelry. You need something that will describe your relationship with the person you are giving it to:)

Tip no.4: Small, but effective

Buying a one concrete present is very practical and effective, but sometimes it can cost a lot of money and you don’t always know what to get. If you struggle with getting a girt to person which is not close to you, but still want to surprise her, here’s the trick… Almost every women likes make up and cosmetics. combine little beauty things and set them in cute Christmas bag, or mug or even jar. You can also incorporate some candy or Christmas treats. Go creative and have fun!

Tip no.5: Home decor

Everybody likes decorating their home for the holidays. You can use that fact to get great present! Now, it’s maybe weird to get someone a box of ornaments and most people have already decorated their home, but little snowballs or snowflakes are so adorable! And it can always be used as a final touch up!

Tip no.6: DIY’s

And now… one and only DIY’s!  I think we all know what this is. I’m huge fan of DIY-ing, but of course I don’t always have time or simply my work ends up looking horrible! I admit that buying a got is easier and less time consuming, but DIY gifts are special. So, if you are a fan of ‘craft mess’ , have a lot of time and patience, let your imagination out and create! You can find bunch of inspiration on pinterest, tumblr or we ♥ it… now, I’m gonna show you the easiest, but still cute DIY gift ideas, that won;t take a lot of time and won’t turn out looking terrible.                                                                                                                          1) DIY mugs  

Literally, the easiest one! Everyone likes cute mugs. So go get some inexpensive mugs and a marker. That’s all you need! You can write out some Christmas sayings or draw little things like symbols or initials, whatever you want! It’ll look great and very unique. Just, don’t forget to put your mug in the oven for about 10 min, to set the marker.

2) Spice up your gloves

Buy one pair of gloves, with no print. All you need for this is piece of felt and hot glue gun! Cut out any shape you would like to out felt, as you can see I’ve chosen hearts, and attach them onto the gloves with a hot glue gun. That’s all! If you want, you can also cut out something else and stick it the middle of heart. If you don’t prefer hot glue gun, you can use good oldfashioned way: sewing.

Tip.no 7: Cute wrapping

This is something that we always notice first when we get our gifts. So, it;s very important to give your best in wrapping gifts. There are so many designs of wrapping papers that you can find use. Also, you make your own wrapping paper! Find some regular craft paper and decorate it by yourself! There’s no limits. Again, you can write some Christmas sayings ( I wrote ‘Merry Christmas’ in various languages), draw something, you can even add a ribbon or ornaments, whatever you like! But, if you really don’t have time just go and buy cute  holiday themed paper bags or boxes.

Praznici su nam sve bliži, a naravno da su i pokloni neizostavan deo praznika. Svi želimo da se zahvalimo i obradujemo one koji su tu za nas tokom cele godine, tako što ćemo im pored neizmerne ljubavi dati i poklon! Međutim, kupovina poklona nije uvek jednostavna, naročito onih prazničnih. Ja iskreno ne volim da govorim ljudima šta da kupe svojim bližnjima, jer ne postoji recept za savršen poklon. Svaka osoba je posebna, i zato zaslužuje unikatan poklon. Ali, onda sam shvatila da je ta kupovina ipak naporan posao i da se i ja ponekad ‘izgubim’ i ostanem bez ideja i da mi je potreban mali  vodič.  Stoga sam danas odlucila da vam izložim neke svoje ideje, za koje vam neće trebati ni mnogo vremena, a ni novca. Naravno, vi ih uvek možete prilagoditi svom ukusu i situaciji. Nadam se da će vam se dopasti 🙂

Pokloni za nju

Predlog br.1: Oprezno sa godinama

Obratite pažnju na godine osobe kojoj kupujete poklon! Ovo je osnovna stavka, koja je veoma važna. Naravno, da ne možete kupiti istu vrstu poklona osobi od 30 i osobi od 10 godina. Mnogi su uverni da se drže ovog ‘pravila’, ali opet se dogodi da naprave grešku, te osobi na kraju ne dopadne poklon.

Predlog br.2:  Dopunjene zalihe

Znate za proizvod koji vaša mama/ baka / prijateljica intezivno koristi onređeni proizvod i jako joj se dopada, a uskoro će ga potoršiti. Iskoristite tu priliku za kupovinu savršenog poklona!Dopunite joj ‘zalihe’ . Ovo je odličan poklon, jer će joj se sigurno dopasti, a to je nešto što joj treba i zasigurno će ga koristiti. Samo morate obratit pažnju ukoliko je ona već kupila nov proizvod i naravno morate biti 100% sigurni u taj proizvod.

Predlog br.3: Isto, a opet različito

‘Nakit je ženin najbolji prijatelj!’ Gotovo svaka žena voli nakit, od zlata i dijamanata, do jednostavnih pletenih narukvica. S obzirom da je ovo prilično čest i ustaljen poklon, dosetila sam se načina da ga malo učinimo zanimljivijim. Trik je u tome da kupite isti komad nakita osobi kojoj želite, ali i sebi. Na primer, možete kupiti mami par minđuša, a sebi iste takve samo u drugoj boji. Na ovaj način svaki put kada ih bude stavila setiće se vas. Povezane ste na neki način. ‘Narukvice prijateljstva‘ su odlična ideja, pogotovo za tinejdžere! Ukoliko želite da nekoga obradujete preslatkim, ručno rađenim narukvica od konca, onda vam preporučujem da posetite @nv.bracelets ! Narukvice su im zaista predivne originalne, takođe možete i sami da izaberete boju i dizajn, a najbolja stvar je što su po pristupačnoj ceni! Dostava je veoma brza, ali nisam sigurna da li je internacionalna, ali slobodno ih kontaktirajte putem direkt-a na instagram profilu ovde. Odgovor će te dobiti u kratkom roku, a osoblje je veoma prijatno i rado da pomogne 🙂 Takođe, birajte komad nakita koji će pristajati vama i osobi kojoj ga poklanjate, vašem odnosu i karakteru.

Predlog br. 4: Malo, ali slatko

Kupovna jednog konkretnog poklona je vrlo praktična i efektna, ali ponekad nas može koštati mnogo ili pak ne znamo šta da kupimo. Ako baš nemate ideja šta da poklonite nekome, možete učitniti sledeće… Skoro svaka devojka voli modu i lepotu. Iskombinujte male stvarčice, poput šminke, kozmetike, pa čak možete i dodati slatkiše. Sve to stavite u prazničnu kutiju, šolju, a možete čak i ukrasiti teglu i u nju staviti poklone. Uvažite svaku svoju ideju, pustite mašti na volju i uživajte!

Predlog br. 5: Ukrasi za kuću

Svi vole da svoje domove ispune prazničnom atmosferom! Iskoriste to kao prilku za odličan poklon. Možda je malo čudno da kupite nekome kutiju kugli za jelku i mnogi već uveliko završe sa dekoracijom, ali poklončiči u vidu snežnih kugli, malih anđelaka ili pahulja su zaista lepi i neobični. Izamiće osmeh na svačijem licu, a žene će uvek naći dodatnog prostora za nove detalje!

Predlog br. 6: Ručno izrađeni pokloni

Mislim da su svi dobro upoynati pojmom DIY. Ja sam veliki fan ovakvih stvari, ali ponekad prosto nemamo vremena ili krajnji rezultat našeg DIY-inga, ne ispadne baš sjajno (u mom slučaju ni približno, bude mi žao uloženog materijala:). Priznajem da je kupovina gotovih pokolona mnogo lakša i zahteva manje vremena, ali nešto što nosi vaš lični pečat je zaista posebno. Ako volite ovakve projekte i imate vremena, a i strpljenja, trk na čuveni Pinterst, We♥it, Tumblr…gde vas čeka mnoštvo saveta iskusnih i sposobnih ljudi koji su uspeli da ideju sprovedu u realizaciju. Ukoiko niste baš vični DIY projektima, ja sam tu da vam pokažem one najjednostavnije, ali opet lepe. Verujte mi, ako sam ja uspela, vama je uspeh sigurno zagarantovan.

1) DIY šolje

Defintivno najjednostavniji DIY sa kojim sam se ja susrela. Svi vole slatke šolje. Sve što će vam biti potrebno jeste obična šolja i marker. Šolju možete ukrasiti kako god želite, npr. možete ispisati praznične porukice, nacrati nešto, šta god vam padne na pamet! Budite uvereni da će ispasti sjajno i da je veoma originalno. Samo ne zaboravite da stavite šolju u rernu na 10-ak minuta, kako bi marker očvrsnuo.

 2) ‘Osvežite’ rukavice

Kupite običan par rukavica, jer to je zimski #musthave i svakome treba. Sve što vam treba da ih ukrasite i učinite drugačijim jeste parče tkanine ili felca i pištolj sa vrućim lepkom. Izkružite željeni oblik od felca/tkanine, kao što možete videti ja sam srce i jednostavno zalepite na sredinu rukavica! Takođe možete dodati još ukrasa unutar srca, ili naći tkaninu sa printom, ja nažalost nisam uspela i to je sve! Ukoliko nemate pištolj sa vrućim lepkom, možete prišiti iglom i koncem.

IMG_20151219_142745

Predlog br.7: Slatko pakovanje

Pakovanje je prva stvar koju primetimo kada dobijemo poklon. Ponekad nas toliko zaseni, da nam prosto bude žao da uništavamo pakovanje kako bi videli šta smo dobili. stoga je vrlo važno da se potrudite i budete kreativni kada je reč o pakovanju poklona. Ukrasni papiri dostupni su u raznim varijantama, a možete i napraviti svoj ukrasni papir. Nabavite običan kraft papir, po kome možete markerom ispisati razne poruke (ja sam napisala ‘Srećni praznici na raznim jezicima) ili iscrtati zimske motive poput pahuljica, jelki i sl. Ali ako ste baš u trci sa vremenom, kupite kese ili kutije za poklone sa prazničnim motivima:)

Stay tunned…

Ovo je bio samo deo ideja i saveta, u sledećem postu očekuje vas nastavak sa još ideja za poklone za muškarce, i naravno najmlađe 🙂 Takođe, želim da se zahvalim kompaniji nv.bracelets na predivnoj saradnji!
