Gals, I’m one lucky gal to have gotten to know a few other bloggers from around the U.S through Marshalls Project Fab Program and this year is super cool because our holiday mission was to play secret Santa to another blogger! How awesome! So here’s my story of how I worked a little P4P magic to transform $50 from Marshalls into the #TheBestGiftEver!
Ok, check out the cuteness! Meet my gift recipient, who may I say has the coolest wrap around braid ever, Dina of the blog Sweetest Somethings! Now although we don’t know each other that well, doing my research I found out that we have more than a few things in common. Our love of Marshalls, brunching, blogging, and of course things that are sweet and cute. So I took a little cue from her Instagram bio about “breakfast & blogging” and decided to head to Marshalls, gift card in hand, to find her the sweetest little something to make her holiday a little brighter this year.
The beauty of gift giving in my opinion is the way it makes you think of someone else, and even if you don’t know the person personally in this case, I love using a person as inspiration, and when you’re inspired things POP! So I Shopped for what Popped for Dina and found some amazing things that I thought would make a great Gal Pal Brunch to Blog about with her besties!
POP! A four pack of super fun colored tumblers for Oj or Mimosas!
POP! Adorable stationary to use as invitations, thank you notes, or even place cards for her table!
POP! Finally, the Creme de Resistance a 4 pack of Kate Spade PLACEMATS! WHATTTTT!! Dina says she loves breakfast and I’m sure she will swoon over these deliciously sweet designer placemats that I got for $29.99! (*I researched these btw, and found out that they are selling at department stores for $16.00 a piece!) I couldn’t believe it and really Gals this is how it started. These placemats set the tone for a “breakfast” theme and then the rest came easy. That’s the beauty of gifting it’s always the thought that counts, and with a few pennies left over, I even got her colored paper straws and a pack of pink napkins!
Moral of the story Gals thought, inspiration, and pouring love into holiday gifting is all you need to be a super gifter! And I must say, shopping at Marshalls makes it super easy to find the Best Gift Ever while still being Polished for Pennies!
