Want to make Christmas a tad less stressful this year? Order some of the fabulous gifts in today’s post now (many with an exclusive DoSayGive discount!) and you will be so glad you did come December. Great ideas for neighbors, teachers, clients, parents, friends, and more!
First, if you are new to DoSayGive, welcome! One of DoSayGive’s missions is to make thoughtful gift-giving easy and fun. This October post is so popular every year because it reminds us to order the gifts that might have a long turn around time (so they will arrive in time for Christmas!) as well as gives DoSayGive readers an incentive (read: discount!) for getting a head start on the holiday rush!
Two Funny Girls Personalized Cups!
Two Funny Girls has the cutest selection of personalized gifts, everything from burp cloths and key chains to cocktail napkins and decals for your pumpkin! To help get you a head start on Christmas entertaining and gifts, Two Funny Girls is giving a special discount on their popular personalized holiday cups.
A sleeve of styrofoam cups makes a cute gift for families and neighbors (because no one can have enough cups during the busy holiday season!). Personalized cups would be a wonderful and helpful hostess gift for your in-laws hosting Christmas this year.
Two Funny Girls has lots of cute holiday cup designs you can choose styrofoam, coffee, stadium, or the shatterproof cups. Order 500 cups ($179) and they will come in sleeves of 10 wrapped with a bow. For orders less than 500, contact Two Funny Girls to request bow/bags ($1/per set) to make your own easy gifts.
Use code DOSAYGIVE for 10% off Two Funny Girls cups through Friday, October 14th. The code is good on all personalized cups, including Halloween and Thanksgiving. Dallas residents: contact them to do a porch pickup and save on shipping. I actually need to order some for my husband who loves his own stash of masculine monogram cups (the only gift he ever really asks for!).
Not your grandmother’s jam! With flavors like peach thyme prosecco, blackberry star anise merlot, and orange hatch vodka, Jammit Jams is sure to wow this holiday season. Your healthy and foodie friends will love that Jammit Jams are made in small batches with seasonal organic fruit and raw cane sugar.
Another nice touch: each jar has instructions for both sweet and savory food pairing suggestions so you aren’t just giving jam, but a way for the recipient to entertain as well. Try over artisan cheeses, a delicious sauce over pork of beef, or even paired with ice cream for a delicious treat. The apple-cinnamon bourbon jam is DIVINE when warmed up and poured over vanilla ice cream.
One jar ($8.00) is perfect for a little neighbor or teacher gift. Even a stocking stuffer for mom and dad! The cute 2-pack gift box is $5.00 and makes a perfect client or corporate gift! And this 6-jar holiday mini sampler set would be perfect for the foodies in your life and is packaged beautifully.
Don’t forget to order yourself some extras because you never want to be empty-handed when a neighbor shows up on your doorstep with a gift or just wants to chat over an easy holiday snack. (Rasberry ginger stout jam over a block a cream cheese, anyone?).
Susan Woodard Watercolors
Looking for a really meaningful gift this year? A custom watercolor portrait is sure to bring on happy tears Christmas morning! I am in love with Susan Woodard’s sketch portraits. Susan is a respected artist out of North Carolina who has been featured in Southern Living, Design Sponge, and more. Look at this painting she did for me from our time at the beach:
The detail is exquisite, isn’t it? I will cherish forever this painting she did for us:I also love this idea for a bride or groom’s first Christmas gift. Or go in with your siblings and give your parents a painting of all the grandchildren. Or capture forever a childhood or first home with a watercolor house painting.
The turnaround time for Susan Woodward’s custom watercolor sketch portraits is 10-12 weeks, which puts us right at Christmas! But, good news, Susan has opened up a limited number of spots for DoSayGive readers with guaranteed delivery before Christmas. Contact Susan via her website to order this week.
Joy Creative Shop!
Joy Creative Shop stationery designs are distinctively sophisticated with the right amount of fun. I love these new oversized gift tags to make gifts really pop this year. A set of 20 conveniently comes with the red twine!
A set of their handwritten family stickers tags is a great gift to drop off on friends’ porches in early December. My friend did this for her friends one year and it was so helpful to be able to use them throughout the holiday season. (It’s also nice to give these type of gifts early because half your Christmas deliveries are checked off your list the first week in December!).
I also love the beautiful monogrammed folded cards – perfect for monetary gifts and gift cards! Here are some more holiday cards and stationery from Joy Creative Shop:

I hope you loved this list! Note: we are launching our 2016 Holiday Gift Guide in early November and it is going to be the most researched and fabulous gift guide out there.
