last week I began shopping for my Secret Santas – I had two family members and one blogging friend. I will be handing the Secret Santa gifts to my family members tomorrow night at our family progressive dinner party, but to send my gift to my blogging friend, I got a little creative!
I went shopping on JC Penney and had so much fun going through their gifting options – I love that they have their website broken down by price point too, because I had a budget of $50.00 to spend on my blogging friend and that made it so easy to find the perfect gift for her!
I found this beautiful necklace, and it was right in my budget, at $49.99.
However, I was having too much fun to stop shopping there! I was finding so many great gift ideas on JC Penney that I just kept going through each department and changing my mind about what I wanted to get her (and I found some ideas for things that I wanted for myself too!). Take this gorgeous jewelry box as an example – isn’t it lovely? Each new department I began looking through held so many options in every price range – I honestly had a hard time deciding what to get my Secret Santa!
I can’t tell you what I eventually picked out for my Secret Santa blogging friend, because hello, it’s a secret! But I will tell you that I took advantage of their super cool Secret Santa Tags! Have you heard about them yet?
JC Penney give you a cute little Who’s Your Santa gift tag, and you simply scan the barcode with your QR reader on your smartphone. Once you scan it, it opens up the appropriate website where you enter your phone number and then…you receive a phone call asking you to record your message! So your Secret Santa gift recipient received a personalized Christmas message from you with their gift! I had so much fun recording my message – it took me a few times to get a recording that I liked, and I am excited for my Secret Santa gift recipient to receive my gift and hear my message! I just know that she is going to love it!
You can find out more about the Secret Santa Tag here and you can even watch this video to see how it works in action! I can’t wait to receive my gift from my own Secret Santa next week – I am so excited to find out who it is and I love surprises, so it is going to be a blast opening up my gift!
I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of jcpenney and received a jcpenney Secret Santa gift and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
