Father’s Day is around the corner and it usually comes with a little less fan fare than Mother’s Day so let’s show some love for Dads! Dads are amazing.

Beyond the ties, sports stuff, and hobby accessories let’s take a look at some great gift ideas for dad.

This week I’m going to help you prepare for the ultimate Christmas emergency situation: the unexpected guest. You know the feeling: you finished your Christmas shopping early, managed to wrap all the gifts ahead of schedule, the house is ready for company then…it happens. Your company arrives with an unexpected guest (a long lost friend or family member you haven’t seen in a while)…and you don’t have a gift for them! Ugh!!!

Well, fear not! There are a few gifts you can buy and set aside as an ’emergency stash’ so you’re never caught unprepared for an unexpected guest.

Only 11 more shopping days until Christmas so welcome back for another installment of Santa’s Sleigh List where you won’t just impress your friends, family, and colleagues, you’ll ‘slay’ them! 😉

This week I’ll be sharing gift ideas for one of the most nerve racking holiday tasks: choosing “office appropriate” gifts.

Most offices may have rules on who can or cannot give/receive gifts or place a cap on the maximum amount of money that can be spent on a gift (e.g. less than $25) so this list was created with those considerations in mind as well as choosing items that would be suitable for both men and women. You can find many affordable options of these gifts at any local Staples, Target, and other stores as well as online on Amazon.
