For the first time since I’ve started blogging, I have never felt like such a blogger, until Gordmans asked me to co-host this wonderful event. Giving Tuesday! In part with Gordmans, I was asked to create gift-baskets in order to give shoppers some gift inspiration. I was nervous. I was excited. I was anxious. I was thrilled.
This is exactly the boost I needed in order to continue to blog, because sometimes it gets discouraging.
One of the things that I loved the most about co-hosting with Gordmans was getting to interact with the shoppers that were just so nice and welcoming. I also loved getting to walk around each aisle to put together the two gift baskets featured.
Gordmans has wonderful and affordable gifts for everyone– EVERYONE! Of course, I’ve come to realize that gift-baskets are perfect because they include a little bit of everything, like love and wishful thinking.
The first 50 shoppers were given a $5 gift card. They were also entered for a chance to win a $100 gift card to shop at Gordmans. Another cool aspect of the night was that 10% of the sales went to the Susan G. Komen Organization.
The first basket I created includes home decor inspired by the Christmas spirit. It included a cinnamon scented candle, a picture frame, a vase, a tree ornament, a wooden bird statue, and of course chocolates.
The second basket is inspired by my dad’s garden. He keeps that thing running in the dead of winter. We all need a little green in our lives and at every season. This basket includes a pretty LED light up vase, a gnome (that was a hit for the shoppers), a couple cactus decorations, an inspirational stone decoration, and a night lamp rose. Plus there was plenty of love to give around, ha!
In addition, you’ve seen the pants, you’ve seen the booties, but what you haven’t seen is this pretty sweater from hm.com. Micah helped pick it out. He’s been so sweet during this collaboration. He’s literally my much needed No. 1 fan.
