STAR WARS GIFT GUIDE

If you’re looking for the perfect Star Wars gift to give the Jedi on your Christmas list, Torrid has you covered! Just in time for today’s release of The Force Awakens, they’ve launched a Star Wars themed collection featuring shirts from the dark side, accessories fit for a Rebel, and everything in between. My personal favourites from the collection – the faux leather coin purses in the likes of Yoda, C3PO, Vader, and a Stormtrooper. They won’t break the bank and you can bring the force with you wherever you go. In the words of Yoda, “Everyone’s favorite person at Christmas will you be!”

DIY: MASON JAR COCKTAILS

With Christmas less than two weeks away, the holiday rush is officially in full swing! If you’re like me, your gift-giving list is a mix of family members, friends, co-workers, and Secret Santa’s; a group of wonderful people all with varying tastes. So, when I stumbled across this mason jar gift idea on Pinterest, I knew it would be perfect for my entire list! The cocktail combinations are endless, making it an easy gift to personalize for everyone.

To get started, I wrote a fun message on each mason jar using a chalkboard marker. *If you can’t find a mason jar with writable space, you can add gift tag with a fun saying of your own, or the recipient’s name.

Next, cut a piece of twine approximately 24″ long. Wrap and double knot the twine around the rim of the mason jar. Place a straw up against the knot that you’ve tied, and secure it in place by using an additional double knot.

Choose your bottle of liquor and place it up against the straw. Using the same twine, tie a double knot around the neck of the bottle, under the cap (this will keep the bottle from sliding off).

Choose your soft drink and drop it (gently) down into the mason jar.

All the recipients have to do is add some ice and enjoy, and you can relax knowing that your Christmas gift list has been taken care of!
