9 gift suggestions for your small group

It's that time of year. The time of year where we purchase, or make, gifts for those closest to us.

The woman's small group that I am apart of has been together for a few years now, and each Christmas we exchange small gifts. Granted, you don't have to participate, but we all do anyways.

This year I was on the hunt for the perfect gift that wouldn't break the bank. There are six of us in the group, so I do have to think small.

Here are some of the things I was looking at purchasing. They are all available through Dayspring.

First on my mind were coffee mugs. The majority of us in the group are coffee and/or tea fans. Actually I'm not so certain that the word "fan" is strong enough. Seriously.

Enter these gorgeous mugs. They are $10.99-$12.99 each. Pair this with a couple hot cocoa packets or tea bags, and it is the perfect gift. Or toss in a Starbucks gift card so your friend can pick up a cup of coffee when out and about.



I wasn't convinced that coffee mugs were right. Not this year.

Next I found myself thinking jewelry. Necklaces to be more precise. These two made my list. I loved the simple phrasing and the designs. Most women like necklaces, so I figured these could be a possibility. (I say most women because I am one of the few who doesn't wear them.)



Now I know you're thinking, "Laura, you said you wanted budget-friendly gifts. That necklace is $24! That is not budget-friendly". Am I right? Well I'll let you in on a little secret, both necklaces are currently on sale for $10 each. See, budget-friendly! (on sale as of December 8, 2016)

My next option was these beautiful coasters. YES, I said COASTERS. I love them. I would totally buy them for myself.

As much as I love those coasters, I still wasn't sold that it would be the perfect gift. Plus my ladies might not like coasters as much as I do. Even if they are pretty.

I was starting to feel defeated and figured I would go with my usual gift of a journal. Those who know me, know that I am journal obsessed and I love to share that obsession with others. Enter the two beauties. Swoon!



Ultimately though, I wanted something different. I wanted something that would be looked at day after day, and could be used year after year. So, this year my small group ladies are going to receive perpetual calendars. I purchased five different titles because each one spoke to me and I have each lady in mind for each calendar. I'm only sharing two here though. You can see all that Dayspring has a offer on their website.

My friends know that I love everything by Holley Gerth. So when I found these perpetual calendars I knew they had to be mine -- err, rather my friends. (I will need to go back and buy one for myself.)



There you have it. The 9 gift options that I came up with for my small group ladies. I hope they enjoy their perpetual calendars, because I know I love them.

By the way, if you're not in a small group, these items would make great gifts for moms, grandmas, sisters, aunts, teachers, or friends. Well really anyone would appreciate them, or so I believe.

Do you and your small group exchange gifts at Christmas?  What did you select for them?

*disclosure: this post is not sponsored by Dayspring. I just really love their products and happened to purchase some things to give to my friends for Christmas.
