Last Minute Gifts + Stocking Stuffers

Last minute gifters unite, Amazon prime is our bestie this time of year & we are rounding up a handful of the best gifts that you can still have on your doorstep by the end of the week.

 one // two // three // four // five // six // seven // eight // nine // ten // eleven

1. My favorite bowls of all time, perfect for your mom, your bestie or even yourself!

2. We are obsessed with our amazon echo! We have it programmed to turn the Christmas lights on and off, add things to our grocery list & the girls love to ask for Alexa to play their favorite songs. The unlimited streaming music is definitely my favorite feature! Want something a little smaller + less expensive for an office or kitchen? Try the dot, all the same functionality with smaller speakers!

3. These are the best water bottles in so many pretty colors, and they are glass so you can add essential oils to your water!

4. Super warm, cozy hats for the whole family under $10!

5. One of my favorite essential oil diffusers ever, it holds a ton of water & turns all different colors!

6. My husbands favorite watch for everyday use, it’s waterproof & super durable!

7. This is the starry night light we have in both girls rooms, they love watching it as they fall asleep.

8. One of my favorite decorating books ever, perfect book just for styling on the coffee table & for beautiful home inspiration.

9. Who doesn’t need a giant fluffy sloth?! Cutest gift for the little ones who aren’t quite sure what they want for Christmas yet.

10. Felt letterboards for kids just learning to spell (or maybe just for ourselves?!) in every color.

11. For your glitter gel pen obessed little guys or gals, you can never have enough art supplies!!

What are your favorite last minute gifts & stocking stuffers?! xo

Brunching Around the Christmas Tree

The holiday season brings everyone together, and we think the very best thing to gather around is food & Christmas lights! With little ones, it is sometimes hard for us to have dinners and evening get togethers with friends, so we love to find ways to make this happen in the morning or early afternoon. We partnered with Einstein Bros Bagels to share their festive box of bagels, the easiest way to bring the goodness to your gathering!

We got a Baker’s Dozen box with 13 bagels & two shmears, but they have many different size options to choose from. Not going to lie, one of my favorite parts about working in the agency world years ago was someone almost always brought Einstein Bros Bagels into our office each morning during the holidays. No reason why I can’t carry on that tradition and pick up some bagels for my current co-workers (even though they’re all five and under) right?

My all time favorite bagel for years has been the Asiago Cheese bagel (toasted!) with Garlic Herb shmear. If you have not tried this, RUN to your nearest Einstein Bros location & make this happen. The girls were huge fans of the toasted Chocolate Chip and the French Toast bagels with Plain shmear, and I can’t argue, it’s delicious!

So if you are a bagel lover or just appreciate a good brunch to go, grab a box from Einstein Bros (and use this $2 off coupon!!) for your next holiday huddle!
