Thoughtful Gift Giving This Holiday Season

This is a sponsored post written on behalf of KISSES DELUXE Chocolates and Walgreens as part of the #SayMore campaign and all opinions are my own.  Thank you for supporting the brands that help make this blog possible.

When it comes to holiday gift giving I have learned a few tricks over the years to making my life easier.  I spent too many years walking the crowded malls looking for just the right gift.  It was tiring, frustrating, and not how I wanted to spend my last days leading up to Christmas.  So now I plan ahead, have a few staple gifts I love, and spend my time enjoying the gift giving process instead of dreading it.

For the ladies in my life I like to put together thoughtful homemade gifts with something yummy, and perhaps a cute detail like a monogrammed ornament.  Everything is useful yet pretty enough to make this gift feel special. 

For the teachers, mail carriers, neighbors, party hostesses, and co-workers in life, I say chocolate is always best!  But I don't just stop at a box of something sweet.  An ornament and bow show that I took thought and effort into making the gift special for them instead of just grabbing anything at the store.  Plus I love that these KISSES DELUXE Chocolates come individually wrapped.  They are perfect for the recipient to put in a holiday bowl at their desk or in their home.  And for those of us trying to watch our growing waistlines this time of year, my gym buddies can hide these in the cupboard where they will stay more fresh than the generic box of chocolate since they are individually wrapped.

For my family, I will be splurging a little more on their holiday gifts.  Whether for my husband, parents, nephews, or siblings, I like to find one meaningful gift and then make the wrapping unique.  I am totally digging how cute these cordless headphones are wrapped around the KISSES DELUXE Chocolates.  With this tech savvy world we live in, who would not love this gift combo right here!?

I love sneaking in unexpected gifts.  For my husband, I often mix his stocking with a few things to snack on Christmas morning as well as a gift he has been wishing for, like these sunglasses.

Whoever you are shopping for this holiday season, taking the small extra effort to make the gift special is sure to win you points for creative gift giving.  Whether working with a small or large budget, a well placed bow and handful of edible treats makes any gift that much more thoughtful.

While most of my larger purchases are well planned out - I am hitting specific stores or ordering online, the rest of my gift purchases are being done at my local Walgreens.  Not having to deal with crowds and a long commute through traffic, I am in and out in minutes with all I need to finish off my holiday gifts.  I love that I can #SayMore this holiday season with Walgreens and KISSES DELUXE Chocolates.

I am so excited about the KISSES DELUXE Chocolates.  They come in a variety of gift sets, boxes, and pouches for however you want to give them away.  I say grab a handful of options and add a few to every gift you are giving this year!

I love that the KISSES DELUXE Chocolates are smooth, crunchy and twice the size of the KISSES Chocolates that everyone knows and loves, all in a small batch of goodness!  With a whole hazelnut and rich milk chocolate, I know everyone is going to want to get in on trying one of these yummy little treats!
