Yo yo yiggity yo! Alright in my journey of building this website I have been frequenting several other sites that I usually go to, seeing how they do things, what they look like, what they’re writing about etc etc. Here’s a thing I generally find super annoying. When websites do a feature on like “Ohhhhh these fancy sparkly holiday dresses to make your whole life amazing and full of love and kittens and a fridge full of boxed wine” or like “Here’s the shoe you need to be wearing so your boss doesn’t think you’re a total scumbag but actually a functioning part of society”…all very enticing eye grabbing headlines I’m certain to click on because I’m a sucker with too much time on my hands. Well here’s where my annoyance sashays into the room: all of these sites are always posting about these $1300 trendy dumb shoe, or $8900 purse I should have to be taken seriously, or how I should buy into bitcoins or some shit. NOT EVERYONE WANT TO CASUALLY DROP THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS ON THE CRAP YOU LIKE!!!
I’m also pretty positive the people that want to drop that kind of money on a horsehair open toed shoe are probably not frequenting your site. So get off your fancy expensive high horse LC…..whooooopsie. Am I right though? I don’t think you need to drop tons of money to have great fashion. In fact I think it helps you be more creative if you don’t. I mean I love a good quality piece like a cashmere sweater or a leather jacket you’ll literally have when you 46 and your kids think you’re trying to be a ‘cool mom’. Fine, purchase away. But just because it’s expensive doesn’t mean it’s great. So as I hop on off my own discounted mini horse (Which is so god damn adorable btw) here’s some realistic holiday present ideas for loved ones.
I’m not going to buy my best friend $423 stationary she’ll never use because NO ONE WRITES LETTERS!!!!!
Hopefully some of these ideas help or at least an spark a different idea. Buying someone a present shouldn’t be as stressful as we make it. You can get creative, you can make presents, you can bake your presents, or if all else fails – bring them a puppy. Everyone wants a gift they need to care for for roughly 10-15 years. But if you get them a mutt it’ll probably live even longer 🙂
