While I most certainly do love watching a football game and cheering on our team, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t equally love football parties. Nothing screams fall and football time more than tailgates and home parties. Think loud cheering, fun snacks, lots of laughs with friends… it just doesn’t get much better than that! Always a sucker for gift baskets, I decided to put together my go-to hostess gift for football gatherings.
What better a gift than that of a book? One that with every turn of the page they are reminded of just how much you believe in them and their success.

If you have exhausted the same gift ideas, have difficulty pinpointing her style to shop on your own, or just want something that will make her know you have her utmost joy at heart, then this guide is for you!

More times than not, moving is an emotional time. You are leaving behind a home that often times has many memories tied to physical objects. Within those walls you may have brought your child home from the hospital. On that staircase, your teenager may have posed for their high school dance portraits. In that backyard you may have celebrated your retirement party. Whatever the association, the physical appearance of the front of that home may forever hold a special place in your heart. Or at least I knew this was the case for my family…
This year for the holidays I knew I wanted to craft a special gift for my daughters and nieces. A gift that could be considered a game or toy, but that could also be considered a quieter activity (what parent doesn’t love some quiet time… am I right?!). I brainstormed for a while but kept being drawn to the idea of a game. It may just be the occupational therapist in me, but I am all about visual learning and fine motor activities that can be incorporated into play time. This is when I decided to create a personalized memory game!
Christmas is a wonderful time to gather with those we love and enjoy their warm embrace. However, it is also a time that we are most reminded of the loved ones who are no longer physically present, having passed on to Heaven.
