5 Productive Gifts to Give a List Maker

It’s sort of a point of pride for me that I don’t like to just buy people gifts for the sake of buying gifts. I like to find presents that will really mean something to a person. It’s why I keep a list of gift ideas for people throughout the year, to make sure I’m giving them the best gift possible.

But sometimes, I still get stuck!

letterOne of my favorite assignments I was given in elementary school was to write letters to our “future selves”, a few years in advance.

Fab Find: Wear Your To-Do List

bandsList makers take notes everywhere – on receipts, sticky notes, napkins, envelopes or even on the back of our hands. Anything that can be written on, will be. However all these scrap pieces of paper can be difficult to keep track of.

I’m bringing back “Fab Find” because I found the perfect solution on KnockKnockStuff.com.  Wearable wrist bands! I think they are great for anyone who is constantly losing their lists! Just write on the band, wrap it around your wrist, and voilà—your to-dos are literally at hand. Why not keep a few wrist bands in your bag just in case you need to jot something down?  They cost 6 bucks for 25 bands.
