What better way to help your sister missionary ring in the new year than a cute watch necklace? These pretty pieces are the perfect combo of decorative jewelry and functional utility. Plus, you can find them in a variety of styles (don’t believe me? Just try searching on etsy), so you can be sure to pick out something that’s just right for your missionary. A few of my favorites? Well, since you asked…I adore this little camera and this sweet teapot, and please don’t get me started on this vintage sewing machine. Also, if we’re being completely honest, I already own this robot necklace. And look! He comes as a keychain, too!
These necklaces are inexpensive, and should be very lightweight when it comes to shipping. That’s good news for sister missionaries overseas!
I know I’ve already done a puzzle letter post, but I had to share this one. Just in case you’re late to the cafe press party, it’s a fun site that lets you customize stationery and other products. My sister just sent us an adorable custom puzzle for Christmas. As I was oohing and ahhing, she sang the praises of the cafepress website. How fun would it be to receive a puzzle of a special family portrait, or a photo of the two of you for a Valentine’s Day gift, or even a picture of favorite pet!

First of all, it’s not just any lip balm, it’s Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm. This is a product suitable for men AND women, don’t worry. Plus, there are a ton of different skin care products to try, and they are all quality.
(And don’t bees make a cute addition to any Spring-themed care package?)
Sometimes I don’t know how people come up with things — but I’m glad they do. Check out this idea: A card you can plant! There are shamrock seeds embedded in the paper of the card. What a creative little gift for St. Patrick’s Day.
If your missionary is serving in a colder climate, February can be one freezing month. Luckily, hand warmers come in very festive shapes!
These are offered all over the web, but for a start, here are some on Amazon: Heart Hand Warmers
If you’re looking for a more personal gift for your missionary, check out Lily Gene on Etsy. She does these cute prints of special places, and can even add little details like a postage ink-stamp of a particularly important date. It’s all totally customizable! With all the options she offers, there are several fun things you could do. Either send the missionary a map of the country or state where he’s serving (what a great idea for a farewell or homecoming gift!), or send a print of his home state / country. Lily Gene also has a “someone in _____ loves you” custom postcard and other ideas. Lily Gene was featured in this month’s InStyle, so check out the shop before things get backed up! I can’t stop thinking about what a cute idea this is, not only for missionaries, but anyone!
