Christmas Gifts Ideas

Let me just say when you are looking for Christmas presents to buy for friends and family it gets a little stressful. So I came up with two ideas for a gifts!

The first gift idea is a picture in a frame. I know it seems unoriginal but you can actually put your own twist on it to make it your own.Gift Idea 1

I bought this photo frame at Michaels for $6. Then I printed out my favorite photo of the person I am giving it to! I then added little notes, inside jokes, and quotes on the outside of the picture in different colors. And since we have a joke about frappuccinos I am going to buy her favorite Starbuck’s frappuccino.

The second gift idea is my favorite. I went to Target on Black Friday and found a throw blanket for $10, and a picture frame for $4. This idea was so cute and I would love to receive a gift like this! In the photo frame I am going to put a picture of my friend and me. Gift Idea 2

I am also going to buy a bag of her favorite candy and add it to the gift. This gift will definitely last a long time and is very thoughtful.

The reason why I chose these to gifts to show you is because they are all very personal. I always like getting a more personal gift then a gift that is just store bought. I love the two picture frames because it really shows you put time and effort into there gifts and that you really care about them.

Quote of the Day

“Show me your friends I’ll show you your future.”-Unknown

This quote is so important for people to think about. When I look at the people I hang out with I know that they are going to motivate me to always be at my best. But if your friends are on drugs and drinking alcohol then you will most likely become an addict too. So when you look at your friends ask yourself, “Are they making me a better person? Or worse?”

Do your friends have good grades? Are they respectful to everyone even if they don’t like them? Are they cautious? And the most important question, am I happy when I’m around them?

If you can answer all these questions with a “yes” then you have a great group of people that will stay by your side.

So what does this quote really mean? It means that if you show me your friends and how they act then I will show what your future will be like. Your actions speak louder than words. So show respect towards yourself and others. Remember you are a great person you just have to show the world that, and if you stick with the right group of friends then your future will turn out just the way you would like it to be.
