My birthday is coming up next week, so I thought this would be a great time to share some things that this soon-to-be 29 year old thinks would make great gifts. I don't understand how I could possibly be turning 29, but it's happening. Parker has asked me 4 million times what I want, so I'm making it easy for him. And any of you that are trying to buy logical or frivolous gifts for 29(ish) year olds!
Believe it or not, I seriously struggled when trying to come up with ideas for this post. Parker said if I don't give him any ideas, he will just give me a gift card for a shopping trip at the Shops of Saddle Creek in Memphis. And I think that must have thrown off my brainstorming process because I am 100% ok with that idea! However, I enlisted the help of some of my best friends who are 28 and 29, and they suggested some fabulous ideas that I have included in the list below!
I'm going to break it down into 3 parts. In the first part, I'm sharing an outfit that would be perfect for a birthday girl. In part 2, I'm sharing 10 specific products 29 year old girls would love to receive. In part 3, I'm sharing 10 general ideas that would have to be narrowed down based on the girl receiving the gift. Also, NEVER FORGET the birthday dessert. Parker learned this lesson the hard way. There must be some sort of sweet treat- cupcake, cookie, cake, pie, something!
Part 1: The Outfit
Part 2: 10 Shoppable Gift Ideas
Glamour Wash Diva- the BEST smelling laundry detergent
Neulash- lash enhancing serum (haven't tried this product but have heard amazing reviews)
Tarte Concealer- to brighten up our under eye area
Lisi Lerch Earrings- the most adorable statement earrings
