Start writing a post

If you are don't have a large budget to spend money on expensive gifts this year for your S.O yet still want something that will put a smile on their face, here are some ideas. You can try to do it if you either have a lot of time or not enough time and some of these are fairly simple to make while others might require a little more time and effort.

Knitted hat and/scarf, etc.


This first item is a very sweet and affordable gift you can make for your S.O. I consider making a scarf the easiest gift to make. If you want to get fancy, you can make a hat. You can even make a sweater if you are really ambitious.

Photo album or Love Book

If you are into scrapbooking or collecting photos, it could be a sweet and cool idea to create a scrape-book of all your adventures together. You can also include cute little stickers or neat backgrounds that will make your photos pop and come alive.

Stitching a bag or a pouch

If you like to sew, embroider and/or stitch, you can take a piece of cloth or a used fabric or even a used fabric bag and create either the bag or decorate a plain bag with nice embroidery. Or you can create a pouch to carry change or small items that your S.O might carry around on a daily basis.

Keychain accessory

This you can get creative with since all you need is an idea of what you want for your keychain. There are plenty of websites that can show you how to make a personalized keychain and maybe you can come up with your own.

Painted boxes

If you want to just make something that doesn't require a lot of time and effort to make this is a good idea for a personalized gift for your loved one. Get a unpainted box of any shape or kind and paint it however you want it to be painted.

Tie yourself down to your chair and grab a glass of Prosecco because this is about to blow your little, perplexing mind.


Tie yourself down to your chair, or your toilet, and grab a glass of Prosecco because this is about to blow your little, feeble mind. Let's be clear about ONE THING. You're not crazy. You're not delusional and you're definitely not a weirdo. You're a spiritual being. You work from a place within. If you've ever had or experienced anything of these things, you're probably the next Long Island Medium, or you're just simply a highly spiritual DIVA.

"Bridgerton' is a period drama created by Chris Van Dusen and produced by Shonda Rhimes based on a series of novels written by Julia Quinn. The show follows the eight siblings of the Bridgerton family as they attempt to find love and happiness in London high society.

Since its release, Bridgerton has taken the world by storm and has left every viewer talking about it. While fans of the show have been left with a lot to discuss, one of the conversations I hear most frequently is about fashion. Fans can't get enough of the shows regal and vintage fashion. So much so that this new interest in fashion from this era has been dubbed as "Regencycore." As the popularity of this show and similar shows only continues to grow, I suspect to see this trend only continue to grow throughout the next year. So here is how I think Bridgerton and Regencycore style will affect fashion trends in 2021.
