The holidays are in full swing and this is my favorite time of year!! I love shopping, wrapping and giving the perfect gift and, let me tell you, I have a gift idea to share with you today that will be perfect for every woman on your list!
While I love shopping for gifts, what is even more exciting is finding an awesome idea that multiple people on my list would love and this year, Michaels Stores has got me covered with their exclusive Recollections Calendar Kit that becomes a keepsake scrapbook at the end of the year, all for just $39.99! I may have squealed and done the happy dance when this came in the mail:
That is always a good indication to me that someone else would also be excited to get this for a gift! Plus, I had far too much fun with this, so much in fact, I am going to just keep this one and then go pick up like 5 more for my mom, mother in law, sister in laws and bestie!! They will all love it!! The great part about this is if you have a crafty friend, you can simply just give them the kit, it comes with everything you need from the album, blank calendar pages, dividers, plastic inserts, and designer insert cards in two sizes! But for moms and grandmas, you can a personalize it first by adding birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions with the acid free pen and fun little stickers that come with the kit- so it is as useful as it is adorable! As you can see, one of the first things I added was in April…
The kit also comes with these adorable little designer insert cards that fit perfectly into the plastic pages for each month. They have all the holidays and seasons covered so you can give it as is and it is super cute! What would also be fun is to add pictures as you go, or even flashback pictures from the year before! Halloween costumes, first day of school, holidays- all would be fun to put in and then find again a year later.
Lastly, and this is just me being practical.. and a bit ocd, I love that it comes in a nice, sturdy box that is perfect for wrapping- or even just plopping a bow on top! Now, I am not saying this ever happens to any of us, but, if you are ever making a last minute emergency gift stop- it is nice to know that all you would have to do is open up the plastic, put the lid on top of the box and your present is wrapped. Amazing planning if you ask me!
I can’t wait to give this to all the gals I know!
