"School & Fall Fresh Start" 

Guest Blog Collaborator:  Michelle Blan

By now, you have probably heard the term back to school more times than you can count. Everyone is getting ready to head back to life as it exists after a joyful, relaxing summer. But, are we really heading back? Or is this, instead, a fresh start to a new season?

Fall brings with it a shedding of the old in preparation of the spring. It’s a time of letting go and moving forward. So, as school comes around again for a new year, children move on to a new grade, a new teacher, and new friends. Some even move away to college. And, then there is a mom and the teacher trying to hold it all together in hopes of a smooth transition.

Giftspiration Blog/Newsletter September.V9 (School & Fall Fresh Start)

Student supply package

Switching to a new school or even just a new grade can be nerve-wracking for students. Liken it to starting a new job every year. You’ve got to learn a new set of rules, a new routine, new people, and more.Back to School Supplies

Making this transition as easy as possible can lead to great success throughout the year. Consider providing your student with a gift of supplies that can make that first day – and every day after – a bit easier while calming some of the fears.

Benjamin Franklin said, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”

Get your student ready.


Destination dorm room

If you think starting a new year is rough for students, how do you think those who aGift College Care Packagesre heading off to college feel? It is exciting yet scary all wrapped in one. That is why providing your college kid with some much-needed comforts from home can combat the homesickness for a little while.Take the time to prepare your student for the upcoming year by transforming his or her dorm room into a comfortable, welcoming, new home. Everything and anything that can make life a bit simpler – and of course a little sweeter – will make a difference.

And, moms – mark your calendar for those much-appreciated care packages throughout the year!

Teachers matter – creativity in the classroom

Students are not the only ones who have to prep for the new school year. Teachers have to discover new ways to hold the attention of students and teach in ways that are memorable and impactful. Every year is a new beginning: a new set of students and a new chance to make a difference.

Gift a Teacher

Getting blessed with a gift of supplies and creative tools can take any classroom from ordinary to extraordinary.

Mom’s back to school essentials

After all, is said and done, you surely cannot forget mom and her needs. Moms have to switch gears and get that carpool schedule ready once again. Between soccer practice, dance rehearsal, guitar lessons, PTA meetings, and overseeing the home – it’s tough, though so worth it, too.  

Gifts for Mom

Surprise the moms in your life with a gift of the essentials, such as a calendar to keep things in order and bath beads to ease the summer stress away. At home work-out and fitness gear for self-care.

Don’t allow yourself or  those in your life to fall back this time of year. Instead, together, take a step forward in the direction of success.

PICNICS: FROM THE PATIO TO THE PARK

Guest Blog Writer:  Michelle Blan

Wow! Summer is already in full swing. There is often so much going on this time of year that it is easy to forget days that mean so much to others. Thankfully, gift giving doesn’t have to be difficult. A simple selection from the “Essentialgifting” website can have you enjoying your longer days while someone special gets your surprise!   

Giftspiration by Essentialgifting Patio to Park Picnics Jul/Aug V8

Speaking of enjoying longer days, do you ever run out of things to do to keep the family entertained and having a great time? Here’s a simple solution… have a picnic!

The best part about picnics is that they are so versatile. You can have one in your favorite park, at the beach, or even in your own backyard.

All you need are a few key items:
• A picnic basket
• A blanket
• Decorative mats, trays, and plates
• Lanterns and citronella candles (for those days when the picnic continues after sundown)
• A first aid kit (just because you should)

Of course, some delectable treats are an absolute must. Lunch meats, cheeses, fruits, veggies, or anything that sounds light yet satisfying. Top it off with some chilled wine spritzers and sweet, finger desserts and you’ve got the perfect meal for a picnic.

Perhaps one thing that makes picnics so wonderful is that you can transition the outdoor space into this beautiful, inviting dining space.  As you tablescape with bright colors, you and your loved ones can sit back and relax, taking in all that the summer day has to offer. Or, you can have some fun, play some games, go fishing, start up a baseball scrimmage, or play some music and dance barefoot in the grass.

It’s a picnic. Make it yours. Do it often. And make some memories.


GRATITUDE GIFTING TO THE BBQ HOST AND HOSTESS



 What happens when you find yourself on the receiving end of a BBQ invite? Remember, during summer, BBQ’s are very common so there is a good chance that you will find yourself in this scenario at least once.

You want to go and enjoy yourself so you reply with a yes and ask what you can bring or contribute. The response? “Just yourself – we’ve got everything covered.”
Now, as much as you would love to show up empty handed without having to lose time in thought on what you should or should not bring, you know deep down that if someone invites you to their home, you cannot show up without even a small token of appreciation.Essentialgifting

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s the perfect thing: A gratitude gift basket.

Gratitude gift baskets can be designed in many ways, but for the BBQ host or hostess, how about something that will stick to the theme at hand? For example, why not choose an Unwind Summer Gift Basket filled with all sorts of goodies to help the couple unwind? Or a Summer Essentials basket with everything that can make summer a hit without worry. And, lastly, a BBQ Gift Basket seems quite fitting – maybe some unique BBQ seasonings, sauces, grill tools, and an apron?
