Bottoms up!

Ok, quickie post here but just had to [humble] brag about one of the Christmas presents my boyfriend gave me this year!  So remember that fun little beer making adventure a couple of months ago?  Well, check out the finished product!

That’s right ladies and gents – SOUTH OF MAIN STREET BEER!  Can you believe such a thing?  The gift being the beer bottle labels (of course), were made from the amazing site Pinhole Press.  They have tons of great ideas for photo cards, calendars, etc. and make fantastic gifts!  The site is very user-friendly and all you do is upload the image and voilà!  They will show you a sample of how the label/card/calendar will look and you have a personable, easy present from the click of a mouse (and some dolla dolla bills).

In case you’re wondering (I know most of you have probably been losing sleep over this), the beer we made came out great!  It has been so much fun drinking something we made from scratch and it actually does take like real-live-IPA!   If you’re in the NYC area, I would highly suggest checking out Bitter & Esters in Brooklyn as a gift idea or random outing with friends.  It’s the gift that keeps on giving!

Sláinte!

With the holidays just around the corner, I thought I would start posting about gift ideas, which is a topic I love!  While I thoroughly enjoy buying for other people, I find it difficult at times to make the gift seem thoughtful, which is part of the reason I try not to buy gift cards (as much as I love receiving them).  What better way to personalize a gift than a monogram?  While there is always the cliché monogrammed canvas tote or button down shirt, here are a few more options with a bit of a unique twist!

Would you want to receive something monogrammed?  Or do you find it to be too preppy?  Personally, I think it’s a trend that will never go “out” and always creates a special detail.  When not overdone, it can be very tasteful.  Check out the monogrammed pillow from this post – doesn’t it add the perfect touch?
