Perfect Gift Exchange Gift Idea {$100 Gift Card Giveaway}

I love the holidays and finding the perfect gift that will make someone smile. Back when I was in the work force we would do gift exchanges or I would simply buy small gifts to give out to my coworkers. It was a nice thing to do, but I just loved seeing their smiles when they received the gift. My favorite type of gift to give is something that will be used. When I was a cashier I purchased the small bottles of hand sanitizer from Bath and Body Works for all the other cashiers, then I just tied a simple tag with a note and signed my name. I placed them all in a basket and set them at our front desk that way everyone on all the shifts could grab one. During the cold and flu season it was the most thoughtful and useful gift,  yet so small and inexpensive! I had no idea how much that little act of kindness would mean to everyone I worked with. One of my coworkers actually cried when she picked out a bottle from the basket! Even the guys were happy to get the hand sanitizers, everyone likes to have clean hands and smell fresh. So many great gift ideas at Bath & Body Works, check them out and enter below for a $100 Gift Card!

My Holiday Fashion Wishes Come True With Lane Bryant

This post is sponsored by Lane Bryant. All views and opinions expressed here are my own.
This year is just like every other year I listen to my son, my niece and my nephew as they all spout off their holiday wish lists with a smile. I remember being young and wanting all the toys, games and craft kits I would see on commercials. Now that I'm an adult my holiday wish list is simple. I want the things around me to make my life better, more organized, less stress, with no fuss. When it comes to my fashion sense I'm all over the place. One thing that keeps my clothing style centered is I like to be comfortable and hope to wear styles that flatter my shape. Which is exactly why I love shopping for myself at Lane Bryant. This year I've made my own holiday wish list, perhaps you'll like something I'm hoping for too? Check out some great gift ideas from Lane Bryant below, plus enter for a Lane Bryant Gift Card!

Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing this prize for the giveaway.  Choice of winners and opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation.  I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post.
Are you excited about Christmas? I am! We set up and decorated our tree the day after Thanksgiving. I've been shopping for Christmas gifts year-round, so I'm feeling ready for the holiday. I love watching the kids all open their gifts, but just to see them play together is fun too. Buying candles in holiday scents help to set the mood, but what I really love to do when I'm wrapping gifts is listen to Christmas music. This year I'm listening to Amy Grant's Tennessee Christmas and you can too! Read more about this new holiday release and enter for a chance to win your own copy below!

Bring Christmas Cheer With Books From National Geographic Kids

I received the below mentioned titles in exchange for this post. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 

Reading is great for the brain at any age, but I love how well the Booper can retain more of what he reads. Getting his hands on books that teach him about science and mechanics is really important to me, so I love National Geographic Kids. He is so interested in learning how everything works, and honestly I don't always know the answer to his questions. Having a book to that answers his questions is great, but the pictures inside National Geographic Kids books actually show him things he might not get to see otherwise.
