5 gift ideas for daughters of all ages

Daughters have a tendency to grow into young women all too soon. While they will always be your little girl, dolls and cuddly toys quickly come off the gift wish list to be replaced by clothes, shoes, jewellery and cosmetics.

Is your little girl starting to grow up? If she is and you are stuck for ideas about what to buy her for Christmas this year then you might like to consider these ideas:

  1. Charm bracelet – a great choice for of all ages. For younger girls the sterling silver charm bracelet from the Little Wishes collection will make the perfect gift. The beautiful bracelet will hold any of the lovely charms like the Silver Ballet Shoes, Silver Ice Cream, Silver Bumblebee and Silver Rabbit.

The Lovelinks range is diverse and offers something special for everyone and Biba’s sophisticated range are perfect for a more mature recipient. Charm bracelets also give you the opportunity to continue buying charms as gifts on special occasions in the future.

  1. An experience – sometimes the best thing you could buy your daughter is a memory. Taking her to a West End show or a concert is a fun and thoughtful way to celebrate over the holidays. Other experiences that make the perfect girl include spa breaks, beauty parlour vouchers or a fine dining meal with the family. A day or night on the town is an especially great choice for larger families where one-on-one time can be hard to come by.
  1. Pendant necklace – Pendants look gorgeous on girls of all ages and often come in sets with matching earrings. These sets are perfect for Christmas and can be worn both separately and as a pair. The Heart Locket pendant from Little Wishes is perfect for younger girls while your adolescent daughter will be thrilled to receive simple yet elegant necklaces from Swarovski or Michael Kors. As your daughter ages, pear pendants or diamonds will be welcomed additions to their jewellery boxes.
  1. Art – canvasses, photographs or paintings are a special way to say happy holidays this season. This is true for girls of all ages because the range of artwork available is extensive. For a younger girl, consider creating canvass out of their favourite photograph or a snap of the family. As daughters enter their early twenties and begin to venture out on their own, there is not always a budget for decorating. Many brands currently sell affordable prints or graphic art that can lighten up their flat.
  1. Watch. A watch is a wonderful gift for any daughter and there are so many to choose from that you are sure to find one to suit at a price you can afford. The Baby-G ladies watch is a chunky watch that the active girl will love and Ice-Watch has a collection of fun, colourful and inexpensive watches. There are also sophisticated, elegant watches at modest prices from manufacturers like Citizen, Michael Kors, Vivian Westwood and Chanel.

Jewellery, experiences and artwork are perfect Christmas gifts for your daughter or daughters irrespective of their ages. Little Wishes has a great collection that is just right for younger girls, while for older girls there are a range of brands and styles available that will be sure to make your special little girl happy.

Holiday Gift Idea – Bass Buds High Performance in-ear Headphones


Today I get to share a fantastic gift idea for someone in your life who has an MP3 player or simply enjoys using head phones to listen to audio books or music like crazy. My oldest was so excited when BassBuds arrived because her current in-ear headphones have been attacked by the four year old and she uses them often. Between waiting for me to get her at the school while listening to her MP3 player and using her in-ear headphones while playing on the Kindle Fire; this girl needed a new pair.

BassBuds.net sent my family a pair of these to check out and share our thoughts with you all as well as a discount code. There are 20 different colors to choose from, we received pink with a white Swarovski Crystal in the outer part of the in-ear headphones. You can have bling while you sing along to your favorite MP3 player songs!

Not only can you think about using BassBuds for your MP3 player or the Kindle Fire like my family uses it for, but you can also use these with your SmartPhone for hands free driving. Now that is what I am talking about! Think about how many people you could purchase a pair of these for with the smartphone hands free driving idea in your mind? I know of a few at least!

BassBuds have high quality sound and with the built in mic and MP3 controller, you can not go wrong this holiday season with this gift idea!

I Met My Love Online: Crystal and David’s Love Story

Today I am sharing a lovely story of two people who met on AOL personals, but by complete accident as Crystal was online trying to help a friend find a guy. When Crystal happened upon David’s ad she thought he was cute and upon being dared by her friend to contact him, she did.

After a month of talking online and over the phone Crystal met David in person. Living about forty-five minutes away from each other the meet was an easy commute. Within nine months they had started planning their wedding, when they found out a nice surprise – they were pregnant! Five months later they were wed and the rest is history!

Since becoming pregnant with their first born, Crystal and David have welcomed another child into their family and are celebrating 13 years together, 12 years of which they have been married.

When I asked if David is the romantic type and what is the most romantic thing he has ever done, Crystal replied, “He is always surprising me with cards or flowers or little gifts/trinkets.  His  timing is always right and he gives me a little pick me up card or gift (sometimes even cooking my favorite foods!) when I am feeling down or just need to smile.  He’s awesome that way!”

This is a true love story based on a simple dare between friends. Ah, I can feel the love in the air.

Be sure to check out what Crystal and David do in their “spare” time to help save the lives of rescued dogs at FurKid Fosters.
