Gifts are my love language.
Personalized Pet Sculpture
My sister-in-law Jenn is TFB's virtual assistant (she keeps the events calendar and jobs board updated) I send her little tokens of appreciation like her favorite moisturizer or a book I think she might like every so often. She LOVES her dog, Ollie. I found an Etsy shop that makes custom figurines. I sent in a few photos that I pulled from her Facebook page and surprised her with this. It turned out perfectly.

Handwritten Recipe Cutting Board
My little brother has our late mom's recipe card holder filled with her recipes. One Christmas, he scanned them all and put them on a USB drive for me. I wanted to do something special for him, too. I saw this idea in an issue of Oprah Magazine, and then found a retailer on Etsy to make it for me. My sister corroborated with me and sent a photo scan of the recipe card so that I could send it off this Etsy Shop to get made. Chicken Divan is both of our favorite meals that she made.
Custom Plush from Petsies
Commissioned Floral Painting
After following her for a while on Instagram, I had Lydia Carns make a watercolor illustration of TFB's office. I also had her make one for my friend Lyndee and her husband Matt of their first home. I love following her company, The Illustrated Life. She releases new designs every month that are sized to use as iPhone backgrounds.
