The occasions closet in our house is one of my favorite places. It goes through cycles of being super organized one minute and in complete disarray the next, but I blame that on the fact that I use it so much. Don’t be fooled though — our occasions closet isn’t nearly as glamorous as it may sound! It’s really just the closet in our guest bedroom — so as you can imagine, it’s a bit of a catch-all.
I’m not always as prepared as I’d like to be, but I do try to keep a couple of gifts on hand for a few different occasions, in case I’m ever in a pinch. I store these gifts on a shelf in my occasions closet, conveniently located next to my wrapping supplies. (And if I’m really on top of things, I go ahead and wrap them.) Today I’m sharing four things I try to keep in stock in my occasions closet at all times.
For A Hostess: Pistachio Dish
I was given this gift idea by my aunt, and I absolutely love it! Sometimes I’ll even throw a bag of pistachios in with it.
For A Birthday Girl: Amazing Grace Body Lotion
Fragrances can be kind of personal, but this fragrance is light and fresh enough to (hopefully) not offend anyone. I love giving it as a gift, because women don’t always want to spend much on everyday body lotion, so this feels like a treat!
For A Birthday Boy: Yetti Rambler Colster
Men can be tricky to shop for, but Mr. AG was given this by his brother’s mother-in-law (follow that?!) for Christmas and loved it, so I added one to our stash!
For A Baby: I’ll Love You Forever
This has always been one of my favorite children’s books! I don’t necessarily have this specific one on hand at all times, but I try to keep a sweet book stashed away in case I need it for a baby or child gift.
Does anyone have any other gift ideas I should stock up on?! Do share!
