Friendship is the best thing ever. BFFs are God’s gift to you. So you know what is the absolute worst? When your best friend moves away. Or when you move away from your best friend! It is like there is a hole in your heart. College and growing up can send you to opposite sides of the country or even the world. Here are 3 sweet gifts for you and your bff to make the distance feel more manageable.

  1. State necklaces: Give your bff a necklace with your states on them! The sweet charms are an adorable reminder of your home and hers, and how you hold each other close to your hearts! Find them HERE
  2. Pretty pillows: Give her an adorable pillow like this one to remind her of you! She will think of you every time she sees it. There is a heart in the place where you live connected to a heart where she lives, reminding you that, no matter how far apart you are, your heart is with her. Find them HERE.
  3. Cute coffee mugs: Who doesn’t love a cute coffee mug? This pair of mugs is the perfect gift for a long distance BFF. Buy them HERE.

Remember, true friendship isn’t about being inseparable. It is about being separated and having nothing change. Just because you are far apart doesn’t mean your friendship has to be!

XOXO, Chels

Christmas Gifts for your BFF

Your best friend is like your sister. Your sister from another mister, that is. When Christmas comes around, you try and get your sister something you think she will love and something that will show her how much you lover her. Likewise, you should do the same for your BFF! My advice? Nothing says “I love you” like a one-of-a-kind gift you’ve made just for her. Here are a few affordable, adorable Christmas gifts your BFF is sure to love!

  1. Homemade bath bombs: I see so many people raving about “Lush Cosmetics” and their super unique bath bombs. You know what is even better? Making them yourself! They will mean so much more when they are made with your own two hands. Here is how to make some. stickygram4
  2. Candy Bar Cake: Pick out all of her favorite candy and shape it into a “cake”! She will love it because when she is having a craving for a sweet treat, all she needs to do is pick a piece off of her “cake”!
  3. Instagram/Polaroid Magnets and Stickers: I love this idea. Make your favorite pics of you and her into magnets and stickers! Visit this site to do so: https://sticky9.com//.
  4. Super Cute Mug: You can either make her a mug or buy her one, whichever you choose! One of my friends and I always get each other mugs every Christmas. I have some pretty cute, sparkley ones from her, and other ones that are goofy! I think of her every time I use them.

None of these gifts calling your (or your best friend’s) name? Gift cards are always a smart choice, that way they can pick out whatever they want!

Merry Christmas!

XOXO, Chels

Some of my close girl friends are in a tizzy right now. They are panicking because they have no idea what to get their dudes for Christmas! Have no fear, Chels is here! I have 3 gifts that will warm any boy’s heart.

  1. 1 month of planned date nights: You know that horrible conversation you have with your BF before date night? The one that goes “what do you want to do?” “I don’t know…what do you want to do?” This gift saves you that convo! Have a bunch of date ideas written out on slips of paper, then fold them up and put them in a jar. This is a gift you will both enjoy!7-candy-bar-saying-ideas
  2. His favorite candy or a candy card: The way to a boy’s heart is food. Get him a mixture of his favorite candies all wrapped up super cute, or make him a creative card using candy like this one! He will laugh at your “sweetness”. 😉
  3. I like you because…”: Boys love to be complimented, just like girls! Maybe even more! They love to hear all the things you like about them. It lets them know how much you value them and appreciate them. Write things you like about them on slips of paper and put them in a jar for him to read when he needs a little pick-me-up. You can write anything you want, he will appreciate your thoughtfulness. It can be something as small as “you have the cutest smile”.

Hopefully I have helped you come up with a great gift idea for your handsome hunk!

XOXO, Chels

What To Get Your Guy For Valentine’s Day!

So many of my girlfriends are stressing because Valentine’s Day is Friday and they have NO IDEA what to get their boyfriends! So that got me thinking, what in the world do you get a guy for Valentine’s Day?! I did my research. It is so hard to know what to get a guy! Here are 3 ideas on what to get your dude for Valentine’s Day:

1. The first suggestion I have is for new couples that have just started dating. A really safe gift for a guy is candy. You cannot go wrong! Go to Walmart and buy a bunch of different kinds of candy, put it in a box or a gift bag,

and wrap it up. He will love it and his taste buds will too! Candy isn’t an awkward gift and it isn’t super romantic so it is perfect for new couples!

2. Guys love hats. Especially athletic guys! Get your beau a hat with his favorite sports team’s logo on it, or get him a hat in his favorite color. He will love it and you will love seeing him wear it because YOU picked it out! Hats are a safe gift for both new couples and couples that have been dating for a while.

3. This next gift is for couples that have been dating for a little while (a few months or longer). Buy him a cool pair of headphones and make him a CD of all of his/your favorite songs. Put songs on it that remind you of him, put the song that you guys say is “your song” on it, any song that you think he will like and that will remind him of you! I am sure that he will love it!

Good luck gift hunting, ladies! Hopefully these tips took some of the pressure of Valentine’s Day shopping off of you!

XOXO, Chels
