“Mint to Be”: A Thoughtful Gift Just Because

Let’s talk about a simple thoughtful gift, shall we?

husband-gift-idea-mint-buttonHey guys! I am Jessica, the other half of the creative team at www.prettyprovidence.com, and like Sarah mentioned in her shark week date night post, we are so excited to be the new relationship contributors on Somewhat Simple!

Today I wanted to share a gift I gave my husband just because. He works SO hard. He is the best dad. He makes me feel beautiful and happy and loved. Sometimes in the midst of our every day routine I forget to show him how much he means to me. Although I try to tell him frequently, sometimes I like to surprise him with a little something to remind him that I’m still twitterpated. Of course, I made free printable tags so that you guys could give gifts to the ones you love as well if you feel so inclined!

mint-themed-gift-ideas-for-anyoneI didn’t want to spend a ton of money, so I kept things simple. I found a great deal on amazon for this mint colored tie, and then I bought some Russell Stover chocolate mint truffles at Walmart, and they were actually really yummy! I had the wrapping myself so I spent under $12 for the whole thing!

husband-gift-idea-mintOnce I got going I couldn’t stop at just a tag for a husband/significant other, so I made variations for friends, neighbors, sisters, new mommas and new papas! So many minty possibilities.. if the gift was for me I would gratefully accept a large bag of mint M&M’s and some mint colored nail polish! For neighbor gifts I would go with mint brownies or mint hot cocoa, you get the idea!


Here is what the free printable will look like! You can use these tags for six different options of “mint” themed gift giving! Woot,woot.
