Gifts that Give Back

Gifts that give back

It is that time of year again, and everyone is on the hunt for the perfect gift for their loved ones. This holiday season, give gifts that give back and have a dual purpose, to make your loved one happy and to help someone in need.  Think of it as constant “buy one, get one free!”

Here are some of my personal favorite stores that are advocates for wonderful causes!

  1. Enrou- This site has tons of items on it that support artisans across the globe and empower communities by creating jobs, providing training and health education.
  2. Toms- Purchase a fashionable pair of shoes from this site and they will provide a pair of shoes for a child. Purchase any of their eyewear and they will help restore sight to an individual through sight-saving surgery, prescription glasses or medical treatment. The sales from their coffee provides safe drinking water systems in seven countries. For other wonderful ways Toms gives back, click here to learn more.
  3. Sudra- This organization provides safe, steady employment and life skills to women in India and prevents them from the modern day slavery of sex trade.
  4. Warby Parker– A personal favorite of mine not only for their awesome retro frames, but for their amazing company culture, Warby Parker provides eyeglasses to those in developing countries for the small fee of $5.00 a pair.

DIY Handmade Initial Flower Wreath

DIY Monogram Wreath

My moss colored “M” wreath was looking pretty tired, so it was time for a makeover. I decided to tie in all the white with the office, and use white artificial flowers to bring the  wreath back to life. This project can be completed with any color flowers, and some faux leaves would be beautiful for Fall!

Items you will need:

  • Artificial flowers or leaves, enough to cover your entire initial- these can be found at AC Moore, Michaels or JoAnn Fabrics
  • Letter, wood or cardboard- I got mine at Hobby Lobby
  • Ribbon
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Stapler
  • (Suction Cup if you would like to hang your wreath on a mirror or glass surface. Here are the ones I purchased, they seem to be holding up really well.

Here is how to complete this project:
1.Since I had moss on my letter “M” already it all needed removed prior to adding the flowers in order to start with a clean slate.

3. To add some dimension to the project, I added some artificial greenery to the top and bottom and hot glued that on first.

4. Then, I began adding each flower with a dab of hot glue to the letter.

5. Once the entire letter was covered with flowers I held it up to find the bare spots and added more flowers in those areas.

6. To add a hanger, hot glue or staple ribbon to the back on one side and make a bow at the top, staple it and then attach the ribbon to the other side of the initial making sure it is even.

Voila! Your fancy wreath is complete and you made it all by yourself. Find a great place to hang it! I would love to see your wreath so feel free to leave a comment below with an image!

P.S. This wreath would make a wonderful custom Christmas gift or look lovely as a wedding centerpiece!!

Custom Sympathy Cards to Show How Much You Care

Custom Sympathy Cards by Positively Glamorous

When someone you care about looses someone it is nearly impossible to express how sorry you feel about their loss. I have often lingered in the card aisle for a long time searching for that perfect card to express how sorry I felt. Recently another family member had lost a father… I cannot even imagine how devastating that would be.

There I was again, searching for the perfect words and the best way to express how much I cared. I thought there had to be a better way. As I was googling quotes, Helen Keller’s, “What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us” really spoke to me. I thought it would be amazing to somehow customize the card to the specific person with this quote, to not only provide comfort, but a keepsake. I absolutely love the vintage classic look which is why this card has the polaroid esthetic.

Any loss can be difficult, whether it is a pet, relative or a friend. I hope these custom cards provide you and your loved one some comfort. To order, simply order the card from my shop (you will be redirected to etsy.com for checkout) and email your photograph to positivelyglamorous@gmail.com Each card comes with a recycled envelope ready to be mailed.
