Gift Guide for Her

We are back with another gift guide today, basically a collection of all of my favorite things or things on my wishlist!! You won’t be surprised to find all things coffee + cozy!

1. Smeg Coffee Maker // The prettiest coffee pot I’ve ever seen and I have been wanting it forevvvvvver. I’m typically not a fan of countertop appliances but everything by Smeg is an exception to the rule! They also have it in tons of other pretty colors!!

2. Platters & Boards Book // This is one of my favorite coffee table/cookbooks ever, every single page is so beautiful & inspiring! If you love to cook and entertain, or know someone who does, this is the most perfect gift! Pairs well with pretty dishtowels.

3. Ember Temp Controlled Coffee Cup // A ceramic coffee cup that allows you to control the temperature of your coffee from. your. phone. Yes, please.

4. Pom Slippers // I live in these slippers, they’re the warmest (legit, warmmmmest) and softest slippers that I’ve ever had.

5. Striped Pajamas // You know I love a good grey + white stripe pajama set, and there’s no such thing as to many pairs!

6. Skin Gym Quartz Roller // All the hype right now over these gorgeous gemstone rollers that reduce puffiness, promote collagen production and also just feel so freaking good rolled all over your face if kept in the fridge. The perfect gift for any of your beauty product loving girlfriends!

7. Sorel Wedge Booties // I got these a few weeks ago (after wanting them for years!) when we had our first snow and I am absolutely obsessed with them!!! I love that they are super durable and you can really trudge through snow in them, but they’re also super cute and don’t scream “snow boot.” I wear them with jeans, leggings, and probably even pajamas.

8. Ceramic Diffuser // One of my all time favorite essential oil diffusers, I keep this one on my nightstand and love it’s soft glow at night.

9. Gem Crawler Earrings // I always love big gemstone earrings, and these are no exception. They’re fun for any dressy occasion but I especially love them for the holidays to dress up festive graphic tees or flannels!

10. Saranoni Blanket // You’ve heard me rave about these blankets dozens of times, the softest blanket ever made, that keeps its softness wash after wash. I LOVE giving these as gifts at Christmas!!

I hope that is helpful for those of you shopping for all the special women in your life (or maybe yourself)!!!

Gift Guide for Him

It’s been snowing all morning over here & the girls are at school, so I got to spend the morning drinking coffee and putting together my most favorite gift guide of the year! Brandon did a lot of this himself, he sent me a list of all of his favorite things and some things he has been wanting. I am hoping he wants that sweatshirt in a size Small, because I officially need it.

1. Camp Brand Goods Crewneck // Camp Brand Goods is forever our favorite place to shop for day to day graphic tees and sweatshirts. They’re a family owned company out of Canada and truly they are always the softest, best fitting clothes. I look forward to every single new season of their clothes, trust me, the men in your life would love a sweatshirt or tshirt from Camp Brand and will probably never take it off.

2. Apple Airpods // Brandon has been obsessed with his forever, and finally convinced me to get a pair, even though I swore they couldn’t be any different from the ones with cords. Per usual, I was wrong, they are freaking amazing and anyone who is on the phone often or listens to music during the day should have these!

3. MVMT Watch // Watches are always the most perfect gift for guys because can one ever have too many?! MVMT is our favorite watch brand, I love the brown leather and the pop of blue on the white face. Also obsessed with this one!!!

4. Drone Quadcopter // I don’t think there’s a guy out there who wouldn’t be thrilled to receive one of these as a gift. My husband, dad and brothers are all obsessed with them and they always provide tons of Christmas day entertainment.

5. Dollar Shave Club Subscription // We have both been using DSC for years, not only the best razors for guys, but gals as well! So you can totally steal from his monthly subscription. A super thoughtful and functional gift!

6. Weekender Duffel (on sale!!) // This is Brandon’s everyday bag, I asked him why this one over any other option, and he said because he can fit gym shoes and dopp kit, but also isn’t too big to shove in a locker or put in overhead storage when traveling. Solid answer! 

7. Front Pocket Wallet // I got Brandon this wallet for his birthday over the summer, and we give it a ten out of ten for both style and function!!

8. Sonos Speaker // This was our Black Friday splurge and I’m never looking back. Worth every penny for the amazing sound quality and fun ways you can control it all from your phone!! Prepare to be addicted and to want them in every room of your house.

9. Best Made Weather Station // I got this for Brandon for our ten year wedding anniversary, it is a weather station that the old man in him just really loves. 😉 Another fun idea would be this Brass Pocket Tape or these Solid Brass Dice which would be a great stocking stuffer!

10. Chukka Slippers (on sale!!) // I want these for myself. Seriously these look SO warm but also like you could totally wear them to the grocery store. Sign my cold, lazy self up!! But alas, I will get them for Brandon. And just borrow them on occasion. On the topic of shoes, Brandon most recently bought these, he swears they are the best brand of shoes for the outdoors.

A few more fun stocking stuffer ideas, these beard trimmers, a Carhartt hat and a cribbage board are all great options!

Hope this helps you with your shopping this year, can’t wait to hear if any of these land under your tree this year! Gift Guide for Her (aka. my wishlist!!) coming tomorrow!! XO
