It’s Day 204 of the Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Project and I’m excited to share some Keep Calm and Carry On stocking stuffer gifts that are British inspired and girly, all for under $6! After a successful interior coaching session, since I was on the other side of town, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to stop in at Home Goods, which I don’t have near me, and the TJ Maxx next door naturally followed. As a self-proclaimed Anglophile (a person who is fond of or greatly admires England or Britain), I am enamored with anything to do with English tea, (like mugs, teapots and scones!), and equally adore the Keep Calm and Carry On motivational slogan that was used to raise the morale of the British people during World War II as England awaited mass air attacks. I became aware of the posters when I fell in love with Rachel Ashwell’s Shabby Chic style. She incorporated the them into her decorating and made the slogan, and innumerable variations, popular this side of the pond. The fact that I found three Keep Calm and Carry On stocking stuffer gifts that wrap British, girly and affordable into pretty little affordable packages is so Pink Collar Savvy & Chic! I’d love to be the girl getting this stocking!
Giving thoughtful gifts that have a cohesive theme is one of my favorite things to do at the holidays. And I’m committed to being a good steward of my resources while I do it. It’s possible to do both. A stocking filled with small treats that speak specifically to someone’s personality and preferences, presented beautifully can be as meaningful as an expensive gift that was purchased with less intentionality. I’m always on the lookout for items that may not have much of an impact on their own but pack a punch when grouped together. The end caps are great for that! Another example is when I recently spotted some large Godiva mugs while browsing a Goodwill store with my soul sister Kibby. Her son works at a Godiva store, but is young and doesn’t have Godiva gift package funds. Kibby is giving him the mugs so he can fill them with the chocolate, wrap them in cellophane and a pretty bow, and Voila’! Two Godiva gift packages made on Goodwill funds!
As a Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose shopper, I hope these ideas inspire you to do some creative stocking stuffing. It doesn’t take a lot of money. It just requires thought and time. If you Keep Calm and Carry On, you’ll score some stocking stuffers that fit your budget and bless your family and friends. The same applies to those in your work world.
How can you be Savvy & Chic on Purpose with your shopping and stocking stuffing this season?
Be savvy & chic,
