Happy Monday! I’m hoping things get a little less crazy now that camp has started and the piles and piles of paperwork are soon to be forgotten. Speaking of forgotten, I haven’t forgotten about you guys! I feel awful that I’ve been so inconsistent on the blog lately. The guilt is two-fold, A) for not showing up for you guys, and B) because this is my job and I haven’t been treating it like one as of late. I know exactly how I fall into this pattern, of all my jobs, blogging is by far my favorite. Because I LOVE what I do here it always feels like “play” rather than “work” and that’s how it sometimes falls to the bottom of my laundry list of things to do. Okay, enough of this boring talk- let’s get to talking about some easy, affordable housewarming gifts with Hope & Steston!
Today’s post is in partnership with Hope & Stetson, as always all opinions are 100% my own. And as a friendly reminder, I ONLY partner with brands and businesses I love, and more importantly, that I know you guys will love too. This is one of them! Hope & Stetson is a women-run, local business out of my home state (CT)!! Talk about a perfect match!
Remember when “Love Languages” were all anyone was posting about on their Instagram Stories a couple of months ago? No? Well I do. At first I ignored it, but after a week or two I finally wanted to see what all this talk was about. Long story short, my love language is definitely gifts. More than receiving gifts, I love giving gifts. [Fun fact: my boyfriend is the exact opposite here.] So when Hope & Stetson reached out to me to help promote their Simple Gestures gift bags I was so on board!
Let’s all agree here that we’re over being sent fruit baskets. As much as I love getting cupcakes in the mail, it’s so hard to send those to people with everyone’s food allergies and dietary restrictions. Enter stage right: Hope & Stetson. Hope & Stetson aren’t just making gift giving easy again, they’re making it affordable. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m not about to spend $80 on a fruit basket that will just sit out for a couple of days before being thrown away.
Hope & Stetson curates gift bags for all sorts of occasions and they start at $20! Moving into a new home, celebrating a birthday, appreciating a teacher, having a baby… Hope & Stetson has all of the occasions covered and more! What’s also really cool is that they have a selection of gifts for no occasion at all, because Hope & Stetson believes that you don’t need a special occasion to send someone a gift. A belief that I 100% stand behind.
Hope & Stetson has gift packages for any budget. Shipping is included, which is awesome, because who wants to pay for shipping these days? No one! One of my favorite details that I can’t forget to mention is that any Hope & Stetson gift comes with a bouquet of dried flowers sourced from local farms. It really adds a special touch! By thinking of Hope & Stetson the next time you’re looking to send a gift you’re A) making your life a lot easier and B) supporting a small, women-run business. Now that’s something to celebrate.
Here’s a sampling of a few other Simple Gesture gifts on their website:
The sweetest housewarming gift that is perfect for anyone. Really, anyone. I’m talking from your best friend to your boss, these Simple Gesture gifts are exactly that: simple & sweet.
I should also mention this housewarming gift was a total hit for Ranger! She was really interested in the dried flowers and the twine around the candles & matches. Hope & Stetson is definitely Ranger approved. Ha!
