Holiday Gift Guide: Twice as Nice Totes from Thirty-One Gifts #personalized #giftgiving

Another holiday season is upon us! We love the spirit of gift-giving and believe the presentation of the gift deserves just as much thought as the gift itself. With that said, it doesn't have to be a time-consuming endeavor to create a gift presentation that conveys how special the people in your life are to you. This year, we came across the Thirty-One Gifts Twice as Nice Totes and love the ease and personalization they've brought to the traditional gift bag. Create the perfect bag with a holiday embroidery icon, initials or festive message that fits your special someone. These totes are a fantastic idea for a holiday party hostess gift as well!

Save with Energy Star Washers and Dryers at Best Buy #BestBuyCSR #ENERGYSTAR

Do we love doing the laundry? No. It's time-consuming and does no favors to our utility bills. In our home, it seems like laundry is a never-ending chore. With as many loads as we do each week, an ENERGY STAR ® certified washer and dryer is a must. It keeps our bills low and we like knowing that we're minimizing the impact on the environment as well! 

We just purchased a new washer and dryer from Best Buy this month and can't say enough about how easy they made it. The delivery men were extra careful taking them up our new stairs and had each installed in a snap. 

If you're in the market for a new set, Best Buy's ENERGY STAR ® certified selection is vast. They are committed to helping families through their commitment to positively impacting our environment, with a huge assortment of sustainable products and appliances. This includes their large selection of energy-efficient products, including ENERGY STAR ® certified electronics and appliances.

GE Appliances Prep for the Holidays #BestBuy #GEKeurigKcupRefrigerator #GEProfileGasRange

Best Buy has been our go-to place for home appliances for years. This year, we're on the hunt for a new stove and fridge as a holiday gift (to us, from us!) for our new home. Best Buy is currently promoting GE appliances this holiday season. We already own a number of GE products and appliances, for two key reasons: they're dependable and they have a unifying appearance: clean lines with minimal curves. Two front runners this season are the GE Profile Gas Range and the Keurig Kcup French Door Refrigerator.
