Dollar Shave Club: if your dad has a beard, why not go with a membership to the Dollar Shave Club? The prices are affordable and the shaving kits make excellent gifts.

 

Bluetooth speaker: if you have a tech savvy dad, there might be no better gift than a set of Bluetooth speakers. The speakers range from $30 up to a few hundred dollars, but can be moved around and used in a variety of ways.

 

Liquor holder: for the sophisticated dad, buy a glass liquor holder, the kind that are used in movies, and let dad feel classy when taking a drink.

Floral Plates: if you can’t make a huge purchase, just go small instead. Floral plates added a fun pop of color and look wonderful when set on the dinner table.

 

Re-paint a coffee table: most apartment managers will not let you paint, but what you can do is repaint a coffee table instead. Try sanding it down and then repaint it a bright summer color—your coffee table will look like new.

 

Marker Dyed Pillows:  buy white or tan throw pillows and color pieces of them with a marker. Put some alcohol on a rag and use it to spread the marker around and cause it to streak in a tie dyed form.

New Year’s Goal Setting for 2016

New Year’s Resolutions are for people that are not serious about making change. Resolutions are typically dropped by February and then picked up again the next year. Goals, however, are life changing propositions, and people with goals change the world. If you are looking to make a change in 2016, forget the resolutions and write down goals. Voice your biggest desires and dreams, then set them into the universe by writing them on a piece of paper and even showing the closes people in your life.

Just remember, chasing a goal is hard work and will not be easy. 2016 will knock you down and stomp on your dreams, but the challenge it gives you, is to get back up every day and build life-altering habits that will one-day build toward larger success. Greek philosopher Aristotle said “excellent is not an act, but a habit”. So get out there and chase your dreams.
