How’s everyone holding up with the new normal? Since I’ve been navigating the stay at home mom life for the last 9 months, I haven’t had to make too many changes to my day to day life, but my husband has been working from home since Monday which has taken some getting used to. But its also nice to have an extra set of hands with the baby. I think he’s a little confused as to why dad is home all the time now. I am thankful he’s oblivious to all the craziness that is happening around us now, and he’s just living is best baby life. Kudos to all you parents of older kids that are having to homeschool and entertain them, while also working from home.

I know its hard to think about anything other than coronavirus right now, but we hope to continue to provide a little bit of an escape for all you readers out there. Justin & I will be celebrating our 5th anniversary this year, and I’ve already started brainstorming gift ideas. So if you are also celebrating your 5th anniversary later this year, or just need some gift ideas for friends and family, I hope these ideas help!

#1. Wood DC Bottle Opener from Godet Woodworking

As you may have learned by now, Justin & I are big craft beer fans. And while we have quite a few bottle openers already, its hard to pass up this gorgeous, handcrafted, DC-shaped opener. If you’re not a beer drinker, they also have some beautiful DC-shaped cutting boards which would be great if you love to cook and entertain.

If you’re looking for a cutting board shaped as a different state, I love the boards from AHeirloom.

#2. Personalized Docking Station

Is your partner’s desk/night stand/dresser always a mess? These docking stations double as a valet to keep all of their essentials neat and organized.

#3. Daisy Earrings from Rachel Pfeffer

I LOVE Rachel Pfeffer’s playful designs, and I own a few of her pieces. They are so fun, and easy to wear everyday.

#4. Rose Quartz Roller

Is your partner into skincare products and/or self care? These facial rollers have gained popularity recently, though the practice has been around for centuries.

What gifts have you given and/or received that would fit these themes?
