VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT IDEAS FOR HER!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it’s time to think of a special gift for the special woman in your life! Check out some wonderful ideas to bring that spark in her eyes…

Wine is always a classic. Go for a very premium brand, or choose her favorite year or personalize the bottle with say, a digital print wrap that spells “Be Mine” or “Love You”!

If you know the kind of jewelry she likes, then go for it without a second thought. Else, depending on the pocket pinch you are ready to bear…choose a simple but chic silver ring or pair of cute diamond earrings or a fashion statement neck-piece.

Who doesn’t love a luxurious and smart handbag? Immensely utilitarian and style statement too.

Gifting fashionable clothes is tempting but slightly dicey! If you are certain of the right size, then buying that sassy dress might be a good idea. But if you have even a single grain of doubt, go for a beautiful shawl or stole to win her heart!

Up for some spicy romance? Gifting aromatic bath oils and exquisite bath salts is a fabulous idea!

Moments of love should stay in your hearts forever. Gift our floral, gorgeously finished photo frames…cherish togetherness with your dream girl. (http://tinyurl.com/frame-of-love)

If you have a creative streak, try these ideas. Make a keepsake box with cardboard, felt, ribbons etc. You can also make heart shaped soaps from colored glycerin soaps usually available. Get the word “LOVE” stamped on each of them! A simple idea is also to tie a chic silver belt around a bright red cushion and dangle a tiny frame with your picture inside. Or pack a romantic movie, a light blanket and a packet of popcorn in a dainty basket for a lovely evening.

Nothing’s sweeter than chocolates…but make it unique. Make small, round paper cutouts for the paper cup base of each chocolate. Write words of endearment and appreciation on each cutout. She will smile every time she has a chocolate!

Nothing says it better than flowers…specially if you have created the arrangement yourself or a flowering plant in a stunning porcelain pot will be great too.

And if you can take her on a vacation, then there’s no better gift possible. Share, connect and enjoy!

IDEAS TO CELEBRATE THE NEW YEAR IN STYLE!

It’s that time of the year again! And it hit me when a friend asked what my resolutions were going to be for 2015? Then again I am notorious for not sticking to my resolutions but I am famous for planning the party!! So here are some ideas that we at Uberlyfe think, will simply rock the revelry you are planning when this year ends.

First things first…bare walls no matter how beautifully painted, will not set the mood for a party. Our “HAPPY NEW YEAR” wall decal will instantly make the difference! Or if you just want your walls to look gorgeous but no theme, choose from our beautiful floral stickers for an unique interior. http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-newyear; http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-floral

A very creative idea is to display a collection of different clocks at a “hard to miss spot” in the room where you are partying. Better, set the alarm for midnight and wait for the fun 🙂

Streamers, paper lanterns or pom poms are a must! Shiny, colorful or bright and white…go wild with options.

Lights are very important…we think when effectively used, they can create magic! For instance if you frame a large mirror with string lights as shown below, the look will be enchanting. Candles are great too, see what we have: http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-tlight

Balloons never go out of fashion. Create some quirky decor with them. Hang snapshots of the best moments from the last year from a bunch of balloons. Or use golden paint or glitter to customize funky messages on dark colored ones!

If you have a bit of glitter or some shiny paint, you can add zing to everyday stuff and make them eye catching. Like the stems of these wine glasses were painted in fun colors and the blue crystal like adornment around the rim of the glasses is colored sugar!glass

To stand out from the crowd, paint shiny numbers on the drinks glasses…10, 9, 8,7…just like a countdown! Use cool, glittering stirrers to add some spice. You can make your own too with some cardboard, glue and glitter.

A sparkling disco ball never fails to cheer things up and is a must have if you are planning to dance the night away…

Lay out a beautiful table for your hungry guests…i have always noticed that using contrasting colors create a more interesting look. And it increases the visual appeal of the food, don’t you think?

Customize the food…and you won’t believe the number of compliments you will get! Cookies that resemble clocks or champagne glasses will be hard to resist. If you are serving cupcakes, make clock cutouts from stiff paper and stick them on the top!

Lights can steal the show no matter what the occasion! String lights, paper lanterns, antique lamps, candles, diyas (on Diwali)…can transform the ambiance magically! They can be bright or suffused depending on the mood you want to create.

 Floating candles or flowers or both in a shallow urn of water look extremely pretty. You can also make it a daily ritual to spread positivism around the house!

 Fragrance is a major charmer when it comes to creating a fabulous memory…use floral, fruity or other delicious smelling incense or candles to make it “feel like heaven”…

No festival is complete without food! So table presentation is crucial…bring out your best linen, place-mats, napkins, crockery and cutlery to create a memorable eating experience. Flowers in vases or submerged in water or floating aromatic candles can add an extra spark.

 Finally…the delicacies that you have so lovingly prepared will earn many times its worth when presented in a creative and eye-catching manner. So whether it’s a salad or meat or dessert, attractive presentation is always a winner 🙂
