For The Backyard Host – Japanese Style BBQ Grill: $59.99
I love hosting gatherings, and I especially love taking advantage of nice weather by holding cozy barbecues in my backyard. (Sometimes we even do “camp out” nights at home!) These are the times this small Japanese Style BBQ Grill has come in SO handy! What I love about it is that I can take it with me to outdoor events like open festivals and actual camping trips. If you have a loved one who loves the outdoors, they’ll love this Japanese grill!
For The Pet Parent – URPOWER Dog Seat Cover for Pets: $24.59
Taking our 2 big dogs and the little guy (who runs the show) with us for a ride can be quite the mess. There’s hair everywhere. The big dogs drool A LOT. And sometimes… accidents happen. Not to mention what claws can do to your back seats! I love this dogs seat car cover because it’s heavy duty, comfortable for the canines, covers all surfaces AND it’s waterproof! They even have a large version that fits the back area after you’ve folded the seats down!

For The Tea Lover – Chefman Digital Electric Kettle with Tea Infuser: $61.35
I don’t know about you, but I LOOOOOVE tea. I find it so therapeutic and relaxing. But sometimes the process of making it is kind of a pain. Do I want to microwave my mug of water and not be able to pour anything over the tea bag? Or do I want to wait forever for water to boil on the stove? With this… neither! I just fill this electric kettle to the minimum water line and flip the switch! This Chefman comes with rapid 3 minute boil technology, so you can enjoy your tea quickly and effortlessly! What makes it even better is that it turns itself off when it’s done AND it comes with a loose leaf tea infuser that you can insert directly into the kettle after it turns off to infuse your tea without worry about floating bits! This little contraption has been a game changer for me, and I think it would make an amazing gift for anyone who loves tea!

From the process of slicing the various meats and cheeses to laying them out beautifully on a board to indulging with friends and family and the conversations that happen as a result. Let’s face it, charcuterie brings people together! This is also a great gift for couples!

Gift Ideas That Cost Nothing
- A Jar of Memories – Write down a number of magical memories you have with someone on small slips of paper a fill a jar! (Bonus points if you hand draw a cute label!) Give them the jar to create hours of reminiscing and great conversation. Don’t forget to give them some blank pieces of paper to write about the memorable times they had with you!
- Create a Mixtape – Get nostalgic and put together a playlist for someone you care about. Be sure to fill it with all the songs that remind you of them. Even better if you can tell them why each song holds such meaning for you.
- Learn a New Skill Together – If you or your loved one’s love language is Quality Time, consider making time to sit down with them, throw on a Youtube tutorial and learn a new skill together! It can be anything from drawing to macrame or everything in between!
- Create a Scavenger Hunt – This is always quite the experience. Send your loved one on a hilarious adventure as they scour an area (your home, their home, a backyard?) for hidden “treasures”. You might include fun rhymes or riddles and definitely some inside jokes! Whatever end prize you choose, it’ll be all about the journey, not the destination.
