Not a Kid Anymore — Teen Costumes

Being a teen at Halloween is sort of like being at a crossroads.  You’ve outgrown trick-or-treating, but you’re not yet partying with alcohol (right?!) and you also aren’t taking your own children trick-or-treating yet.  But there’s still a part of you that wants to take part.  You want to put on a costume and celebrate!  And there’s no shame in that.  Putting on a costume is crazy fun, and Halloween is the perfect excuse to do it.  Maybe your high school is letting you dress up for the day, or you’re throwing a Halloween party.  You’ll be glad to make an excuse to be something else for the day!

The Teen Peacock costume will get you noticed.

First Anniversary Gifts

You’ve made it through one year.  One magical year filled with ups and downs, peaceful times and fights.  But you’ve made it through a whole year!  And whether that’s a year of going steady or being married, it’s definitely something you need to celebrate.  Make those dinner reservations, pick out the perfect outfit a week in advance, and get just the right gift.

Traditionally, the 1st anniversary is considered the year of paper.  It can be fun to think of creative ways to interpret the paper theme.  For instance, a picture frame fits the bill nicely, the photo being printed on paper, after all.  A Personalized Frame makes for a romantic and thoughtful gift.  Click here for one that can be personalized with both your names, plus your anniversary date.  This couple frame is beautiful with its “Love” inscription and clean, modern design.  Your loved one will be touched by this gesture.  A Personalized Romantic Print is also a lovely way to interpret the paper theme.  While “paper” may seem like a boring gift theme, it actually can be the platform for some rather creative gifts.

Of course, you can think outside of the traditional paper theme for your first anniversary gift.  Check out an adorable Personalized Mug here.  Your loved one can think of you each morning with some coffee!  And this Personalized Love Pillow Case Set is a beautiful addition to the home the two of you share.

You may feel some pressure to really do it up big for the first anniversary, but the important thing is to not get overwhelmed.  Often, the simplest gesture can be the most meaningful.
