Summer Gift Exchange

I was super excited when Emma from Harper and Will reached out to me about co-hosting a summer gift exchange. Neither one of us had done this before but we thought it sounded like the perfect way to celebrate the beginning of summer. I had such a great time collecting up some fun summer surprises for Taylor and her daughter Harper from A Princess Made Mommy. Check out what I got them here. I truly hope they enjoyed receiving their package.


Elin and I were so excited when our package arrived all the way from California from Erin and Lex from Hello Erin. I have been following Erin’s blog for quite some time and I love reading about what all they are up to. Erin and Lex completely spoiled us with some of the coolest gifts!!! To say there were squeals and confetti flying as we were unwrapping would be an understatement….and they weren’t all from Elin!

Elin was so excited to rip in the package that I couldn’t get her to look up for any photos.


The first thing Elin noticed was the ice princess wands. These things are so cool!  They are sparkly straws that that are in a special tray where you can make ice wands for your drink and additional star ice cubes! We are both so excited to try this out! Elin is loving stars right now so this is perfect! The next thing Elin grabbed was cool silicone molds for making push pops! How awesome is that? I am already dreaming of all the concoctions to make! As evidenced by the photo, Elin immediately starting ripping into the package!


Next Elin grabbed an adorable beaded necklace with sea creature beads. She loves it and definitely staked her claim on it by not allowing me to touch it.



I am obsessed with the insulated mason jar tumbler. I love my water to be ice cold, therefore I usually only use insulated cups at home and work and I am so excited by this one with the handle and and a thick straw which should be perfect for smoothies!!!

Also, check out the gorgeous hair ties!  Aren’t they the most gorgeous colors?!?!? They are so beautiful and I can’t wait to wear them.


Seriously, I can’t thank Erin and Lex enough for our lovely gifts! It was so thoughtful and exciting and will definitely brighten our summer! Also, a huge thank you to Emma for thinking of this brilliant idea and allowing me to co-host and to everyone who participated.
