Gifts on a Budget: 6 Gifts that Will make them Think You Broke the Bank

Christmas budgets suck. Unfortunately, we don't all have Black Amex cards at our disposal and therefore have to determine not only how much we have in total to spend, but how much to spend per person. It ends up becoming a game of "Who do I love more and will therefore spend more money on" or "Who is going to spend a lot on me so I have to therefore spend a lot on them?" Who do you rank above who? It is a popularity contest that no one wants to play (or find out they are at the bottom of). The goal becomes to find cheap gifts that look like you've spent money. And don't worry about purchasing inexpensive gifts, because in the end, it is always the thought that counts!

Acrylic Name Necklace Gift

The goal when looking for inexpensive holiday gifts is to find items that look like they cost a pretty penny. And in reality you aren't counting pennies from the crevices of your couch to pay rent because you spent an exorbitant amount on a Christmas gift.

Here are some examples of great Christmas gifts that won't break the bank but are very thoughtful and will garner a big holiday hug!

Engraved Dog Tag Keychain
Engraved keychains are very popular right now! Personalized keychains are not only a great gift to give a guy or a girl, but if the recipient is not a big jewelry-wearer, a keychain is the next big thing. One of the most popular engravings we've seen this year is "Love You to the Moon and Back!"

Acrylic Name Necklace
Can't really afford a silver or gold name necklace, but still want to get someone on your list something nice? What about an acrylic name necklace? Not only can you choose the name or word you like, but you can make it extra special by putting it in their favorite color!

Acrylic State Necklace
Everyone has one state that they love more than any other, which is why the Acrylic State Necklace is such a good choice! If they have a favorite sports team from that state, you can get the necklace is one of the team's official colors! (And if you are looking to splurge just a bit more, there is always our Sterling Silver State Necklace with Initial!)

Celebrity Monogram Necklace in Acrylic
Do you have someone on your list who is into the monogram jewelry trend? We love monogram accessories and we love inexpensive ways to wear our initials. That is why our Celebrity Monogram Necklace in Acrylic is so popular. Show off your initials in a fun and fabulous way! And if you are unsure how to monogram a necklace, don't worry, we can help!

Stainless Steel Dog Tag Necklace with Initials
Hands down, men can be hard to shop for, especially when it comes to men's jewelry. We are always reading up on the best gifts for men. But when you mix men with inexpensive gifts, it can be even more difficult. That is why we love personalized dog tags! Dog tags are the best when it comes to looking for jewelry for men. And this dog tag with initials is simple, stylish, and something a recipient is sure to like. 

Personalized Key Bracelet on Shamballa Cord

We love the stackable bracelet trend going on right now. Arm candy is no longer that cute boy walking with you but the amazing bracelets you have stacked around your wrist! Our favorite bracelet style has to be shamballa! They are fun, colorful, and we have many styles available with an assortment of pendants. Our Personalized Key Shamballa Bracelet is one of our most popular because not only can you choose the color cord and engraving, but also the birthstone! 

What inexpensive gifts would you buy for Christmas?

MyNameNecklace Shares: Thanksgiving Traditions

Everyone has their own special Thanksgiving traditions they do every year. Even the President of the United States has an annual tradition - he officially pardons the National Thanksgiving Turkey and allows it to live out its remaining time on a farm with the other pardoned turkeys from years before. There is no stronger holiday for traditions than Thanksgiving. We decided to ask around the MyNameNecklace office and find out some of our coworkers' Thanksgiving Day traditions.

Keep Calm and Gobble On

Showing Thanks
Every year, my mom puts branches of a tree using construction paper on a wall. When you walk in, before you are able to sit at the table to eat, you need to take one of the green cut-out leaves, and write what you are thankful for. In the end, there is a beautiful tree with what everyone is thankful for.

The Family that Watches the Parade Together, Stays Together
On Thanksgiving, the parade is on and we are all watching it together. Usually I am sitting on the couch peeling potatoes and my mom can be seen in the background stealing glances as she cooks dinner. No matter what, we all watch it together and then we can talk about it over dinner with family and friends.

Throwing Around the Ol' Pigskin
While dinner is cooking, we all go to the local park and play a game of football. Usually there are other families doing the same thing, so we get one really big game going on with the whole neighborhood! And every year the moms come out and bring us all hot cider while we play!

Unearthing Christmas Decorations
After the Thanksgiving meal, while some people watch football, the rest of us go into the basement and officially bring up the decorations for Christmas. We sit around and remember stories behind tree ornaments and wall decorations, while also deciding how to decorate the outside of the house!

Bringing out the Board Games
We are not huge football fans, so after the meal, we bring out all our board games and play. We often get a good game of Monopoly going but other old school games like Boggle, Trivial Pursuit, and The Game of Life are also popular choices!

Movember at MyNameNecklace

Our office got a whole lot fuzzier this month! And no, we didn't get an office pet (but how cool would that be, *ahem*?!), we are celebrating Movember in the MyNameNecklace headquarters. Movember is a relatively new movement where men everywhere ditch their razors and for a month and start to look a bit like Grizzly Adams to raise awareness for men's health issues, including testicular and prostate cancers. What started in 1999 as a small movement has now exploded into a global tradition. The Movember Foundation has raised over $500 million to help support health programs for men!

Keep Calm it's Movember

Here, we do what we can for our guys! Not just the ones who work for us but also the guys that come to our shop looking for personalized gifts for others as well as something for themselves! To raise awareness in our own office, we went around with our Mustache Necklace and asked people to take pictures with it!

 How do you think we look with this mustache? Regal, thoughtful, or kind of like we are about to be up to no good?
 We had a whole lot of fun with this photo shoot! (And don't mind the hats hanging in the back. Our office manager got a little too festive with the holiday decorations! But we love Christmas!)

To learn more about Movember, please visit the Movember Foundation!

MyNameNecklace Tutorial: How to Wrap Christmas Gifts

With only a bit more than a month left until Christmas, by now you are starting to shop for Christmas gifts. That list isn't going to complete itself! But of course, after you buy Christmas gifts the next job is to wrap them! Of course they need to look all nice and pretty for the 5 minutes they are under the tree. You know, before that careful wrapping job you did is in pieces all over the floor and around the Christmas tree. But not everyone knows just how exactly to wrap a gift for Christmas! Don't worry! At MyNameNecklace, we are here to help you! We present to you our Christmas wrapping tutorial!

What You Will Need:
  1. Wrapping paper (you can go as festive as you like, but comics from Sunday's newspaper does just fine as well!)
  2. Scissors
  3. Tape
  4. Ribbons and other decor 
  5. A smile on your face as you think about how happy the recipients will be once they open your present (this is totally not optional!)
  6. And of course, the gift you want to wrap!
MyNameNecklace Gift Wrapping Tutorial

Step 1: Measure and Cut your Wrapping Paper
Place the gift to be wrapped at the center of the wrapping paper. Make sure you have enough extra paper on the sides so they meet in the middle. Cut out the piece that you need!

MyNameNecklace Gift Wrapping Tutorial

Step 2: Make Your First Folds
Fold your first side over and secure with some tape. Then fold the second side over and secure with a piece of tape. You should have a clean edge.

MyNameNecklace Gift Wrapping Tutorial

MyNameNecklace Gift Wrapping Tutorial

Step 3: Let's Get to the Bottom of It
If you have some excess paper at the ends of your gift, you can cut a bit off, but make sure to leave a bit so you can do the necessary folds. Take the shorter sides and fold them in in, crimping the edges, and making the long side look a bit like a V. Do the same to the other side so you have two flaps. Fold one flap over the over, and secure with tape.

Step 4: Rinse and Repeat
Do the same thing with the other side of your gift.

Holiday Gift Guide: Here's One for the Fashionistas

As we are approaching the end of our gift guide series, there is an important group that we have left out - fashionistas! These are the girls that follow the latest jewelry trends and watch to see what their favorite celebs are wearing to emulate it! So for all the fashionistas out there, we have the perfect gifts for you! Don't forget to put these on your Christmas wish list!

First and foremost, all fashionistas need a monogram or two...or a whole collection, in their arsenal!

We have loads of styles of monograms just for you - our Celebrity and Premium Collections remain some of our top accessories of 2014 and will totally not stop in 2015! Every girl will want a monogram just like yours!
