A present can be so much more if you add just the slightest touch.

Creative Christmas Present Ideas For People That Really Like To Go All Out With Gifts

For some people, Christmas presents are one of the biggest parts of Christmas. Not presents for oneself, but presents for others. It’s hard picking out that special thing someone will like while making it a surprise and while sometimes trying to top last year’s gift to him or her.

Christmas presents can be especially hard when you’re in college and want to Christmas shop, but instead have to study for finals. Wanting to get someone jewelry, but only being able to afford a shirt is also a struggle. Sometimes, last-minute gifts can be turned into a gift that looks very well thought out. Most people will appreciate that you put a little more effort into their present. Here are some ideas for anyone that wants to spice up their gift to someone, starting with the easier ones.

Get them a card.

The most obvious one. This can make a huge difference in a gift, and can make a present more meaningful.

Decorate their present.

You can never decorate a present too much. Bows are nice on a present, but there are actually hundreds of other things that can be placed on a gift. A lot of them are cheap and can be hand-made, too! Bells, holly, fancy string or anything else someone likes can make the present more desirable looking to open.

Use interesting wrapping paper.

Interesting wrapping paper can go a long way. A lot of companies, such as spoonflower, have the option to customize wrapping paper with something pretty or something funny that will make a present super unique. There are even some gift-wrapping ideas for those who really want to make a present impressive.

The mystery gift.

Boxes are exciting, but what can make a gift even more exciting is a conspicuous shape of something that looks like an animal, a bizarre object, or something completely out of the ordinary. Who says a present can't be a star, circle, long line or even a house! Try this with someone who you really want to impress.

Make opening the present more fun or even strange.

Again, the way a present is opened can almost be as fun as finding out what the present is. Get creative by putting one small item in five large boxes or put bubble wrap over tin foil over a box. Make the present hard to get to. Chances are the person receiving the gift will get a laugh.

Try to get creative every year and find out what your friends or family like best. It's always fun to have a unique gift and it can make someone feel more appreciated.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
