The Gift

 Happy October Everyone,

I know I haven’t written a blog in a few months, but so many things have happened since January. I’ll share later; this post is geared towards something else.

I was drinking a Starbucks coffee, that I purchased with a gift card & just like that the idea came to me to create a post (blog & Instagram post: @iam.mariejen) about giving tips on gift ideas. I love giving gifts and I love receiving gifts, it’s one of my love languages, so why not share on some simple yet great gift ideas. So, let’s get right into it!

Gift Idea 1: A Gift Box

This one may take some time because you must search for the actual items to place in the box. I usually use someone’s favorite color to purchase little items and snacks to fill up the gift box. Recently I did someone’s favorite food item: pumpkin. I purchased pumpkin everything, minus an orange nail polish and a gift card to Starbucks for a pumpkin drink. Let’s Segway’s into gift number two.

Gift Idea 2: Food Related Gift Card

Gift cards can seem impersonal but as a recipient let me further explain. If the recipient of your gift loves traveling and travels a lot like my family and I do, then this gift is perfect. When I am away from home, I try to spend as little as possible of my own money on food related expenses. Whether to a franchise, a restaurant or a grocery store, food related gift cards help to eliminate the stressors of what to eat for anyone. Some of the gift cards I’ve received were from places I’ve never been to or weren’t too fond of (based on previous experiences) but guess who researched the menu and found food I would enjoy, me! Regardless of if you know the persons favorite types of food or not, I don’t believe you can go wrong with food gift cards!


I hope you all enjoyed this read! Please share so that others can too be inspired!

-Stay Blessed,
