I just love the ruffle detail and gingham print on this top. Even though I am tall I got the petite size so that the top wouldn’t go past my butt! These NYJD jeans are also super stretchy and comfortable. I decided to get these this summer for the bootcut look, and it’s a refreshing change from my usual skinny jeans. Based on my bag an earrings I clearly have a new thing for pom poms too! What trends are you loving this summer?

Next week, we are heading to the beach in South Carolina for a long week and I’m really looking forward to a relaxing Fourth of July. I’m sure I’ll repeat this outfit too when we go out to dinner. If your patriotic plans are a little more casual that the look I am wearing, you may be interested in some of the items I’ve linked below!

Keepin’ it Casual

I recently got the blue and white striped dress linked below. A dress like that  would be perfect for a more fancy affair this Fourth of July. I have also linked some red, white and blue accessories to enhance your patriotic outfits this summer.

Feelin’ Fancy on the Fourth

What do you have planned for this year’s Fourth of July? Will you have a red, white and blue outfit or wear one of the three colors? I tend to gravitate to blue clothing, but red can be just as patriotic and stylish this time of year.

I would love to hear all about your plans for fun and fashion. And whatever you do, I hope it’s a blast!

Cheers!

Affordable Housewarming Gift Ideas

affordable housewarming gift ideas - sarah camille's scoop - scsscoop.com

There is a big difference in a house and a home. Personally, I love finding little unique pieces of decor that add a personal, homey touch to our abode. But, it can be tricky to find an affordable housewarming gift that suits someone else’s home. There are many gift ideas that you can consider without breaking the bank. I love finding gifts that are unique to the host and putting a little thought into a gift can go a long way when you are trying to make a good impression. It is important to not pick the first thing you see that you secretly want for yourself! Remember to consider the personal style, favorite colors and home decor of the gift recipient. With that in mind, here are a few of my favorite, go-to affordable housewarming gift ideas.

“Home is where love resides, memories are created, friends and family belong and laughter never ends.” — Unknown

Canvas Prints

If you have a friend who loves personalized decor, canvas prints will make a great housewarming gift. It can be personalized to suit the preferences of the recipient. One of the most popular ideas is to use a family photo. A heartwarming quote printed on canvas is also a good idea. Choose a good frame to complement the print and the style of the person you’re giving it to.

Cheese Board

This will make another affordable housewarming gift, especially for someone who loves hosting intimate dinners and parties at home. Look for materials that are not only durable but also good in terms of aesthetics. Marble, wood, and brass are some of the best materials that are available. The cheese board will be a functional and decorative piece.

Candle

This is one of the most popular gifts to bring in a housewarming party. It is functional and affordable. The scent and the color of the candle are two of the most important things that you have to consider. The design is also important. Make sure that it will look good wherever it will be placed at home.

Wine or Wine Rack

Like candles, a bottle of wine is a common housewarming gift. You probably know your friend well and it won’t be hard to choose a wine that he or she will love. It also helps to choose a wine that suits the personality of the recipient. If you’d like to take a new twist on this gift idea, your wine-loving friends may appreciate a wine rack, like the ones below!

Flower Vase

A nice vase will make an excellent accent piece in almost any part of the house. When giving a vase, it will also be good to pair it up with nice flowers. You can pick fresh flowers from the garden if you have one. I was recently given the brass vase pictured below and am loving how it looks in our living room.

Here are a few more affordable flower vases you can give!

Tool Kit

This will be a great gift for those who love DIY tasks. Both guys and girls who love doing things on their own will love it. Choose a simple set with the basic tools needed in most tasks, such as a screwdriver and pliers.

Accent Pillows

This is another cheap idea that is great to bring in a housewarming. Give up to three pillows with different colors and patterns, which are sure to make an excellent decor in the living room. You can even have the cover personalized.

Potted Houseplant

No, you do not need to give the large ones. A miniature plant in a cute pot will make a good gift, especially for people who love gardening. It also makes for nice decor, by adding a touch of nature indoors. There are some cute herb plant kits, like the ones below, that are not just affordable but also practical.

“Your home should tell the story of who you are, and be a collection of what you love.” — Nate Berkus

Shopping for an affordable housewarming gift should not be a complicated task, but I know from experience it can be challenging! Hopefully these suggestions will make someone (and their home!) happy with your little present!

Now, I would love to hear if you have received a housewarming gift that made a great impression on you and your home. Do you have a favorite, go-to item you like to give for housewarming parties or for hostess gifts? Let’s chat in the comments section!

Cheers to a wonderful week!
