Holiday Gift Guide for Her

Our first holiday gift guide of the season!!!! You guys know I LOVE putting these together, especially this one since it’s basically a round up of all of my favorite things!!!! Let’s get right to it!!

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven // eight

Ceramic Mug // This travel mug is my absolute favorite! It keeps my coffee hot and my hand not, and you can also sneak wine in it when necessary. Such a great gift at a great price point!!

Marble Serving Board // The scalloped edges give me all the heart eyes! The perfect gift for the hostess with the mostess, or to put on your own wishlist to add a feminine touch to your kitchen.

Striped Pajamas // I live in these pajamas!! They’re so soft & stretchy, I wear them around the house (and to Starbucks and preschool drop off), but they’re lightweight enough to sleep in and not get hot! The color is SO pretty in person!!

Leopard Twist Headband // Ok you guys saw me wear this during our entire trip to NYC last week, I didn’t expect to love this as much as I do but it is the cutest thing ever!! Keeps your head & ears warm without giving you hat hair, plus keeping it festive with all the SJP/Clark Griswold vibes. I also have the matching gloves and they have a super cute matching scarf as well!

Wine Glasses // Another thing every gal needs in her life, these amazingly oversized wine glasses!! These are the red wine glasses and the shape of the white wine and champagne glasses are equally as cute!! And they ship free!!!! Also love these for a little bit less expensive option!

Ceramic Diffuser // I love this ceramic essential oil diffuser, it’s so pretty and runs for 10+ hours. I also have a few of the smaller version and they’re perfect for smaller spaces like bathrooms or offices. If you want info on what essential oils we love, you can read more over here!

Espresso Machine // We spent quite a bit of time after our trip to Seattle this Spring researching espresso machines, it is one of my favorite purchases of all time!! I love this one because it is so easy to use & doesn’t take up a ton of counter space. Get ready to make all the lattes and hot chocolates of your dreams!! Pictured above with my favorite Christmas mugs of the season!!

Fuzzy Slippers // These fuzzy slippers are the BEST and everyone absolutely needs them! They are SO soft. I vote for the pink but there are a few other cute color options!

And of course a few honorable mentions:

The bomber vest of my dreams, this is at the top of my Christmas list. Fun fact: the black puffer vest that I wear daily is TEN years old.

This sherpa pullover hoodie that everyone needs in their life.

If you don’t have a Saranoni blanket yet, add this to your Christmas list immediately. If you do have one, then it might be time to upgrade to the robe.

And last, these adorable monogram pouches perfect for the person who is so hard to shop for, no matter their age or interests!! Love every single one of these!!!

That’s all for today! Stay tuned for our gift ideas for men, kids & stocking stuffers coming soon!! XO

Ten Fun Things to do Before November is Over

Where has this month gone?! November has been flying by and I’m convinced Christmas is going to be here before we know it. I wanted to share with you guys a few things we are planning before the month is over & thought they might be fun things you could add to your calendar as well!!

  1. Plan Friendsgiving. I love Friendsgiving because it is so much more casual and less pressure than the official Thanksgiving dinner. Invite over your besties or your neighbors and eat all your favorite food together, doesn’t even have to be turkey!! It’s also so fun to have a kids table and a menu just for them, let them indulge and plan the menu themselves!! Picture the scene where buddy the elf is eating his syrup drenched spaghetti.
  2. Make a holiday playlist. Then jam out to it allllll season long. May I suggest a little Kenny G. Our holiday playlist is coming soon!
  3. Start your holiday shopping. It’s never too early to grab some gifts and start stashing them away for Christmas morning. Or do as I do, and add all your favorite things to your cart now and check out on Black Friday when they have the best deals of the season!! I’ll be sure to share lots of gift guides & all of my favorite sales right here!
  4. Have a wine + cheese night and watch all your favorite Thanksgiving TV episodes. Fun to do alone, with your spouse or with your girlfriends!!
  5. Go on a long walk with a podcast & a coffee. Enjoy all of that fresh Fall air before it freezes, this is my favorite time of year to be outside!!
  6. Declutter & donate. It feels so good to do before the holidays & we love being able to donate to local shelters and community centers for those in need. And if you have the capacity, adopt a family this Christmas!!
  7. Cozy up your home for cold weather. It’s time for all the cozy blankets, twinkle lights & diffusers!! I also love putting flannel sheets on all the girls beds!!
  8. Try a new soup or chili recipe. We try to do this every Fall but this year it has truly just flown by too fast. We do make this white chicken chili every year and it is always a fave. Probably because we serve it with Fritos.
  9. Plan an intentional coffee date or afternoon with a grandparent. Grandparents are such treasures & seem to only be in our lives for a short amount of time. If you still have a grandparent living, be intentional about planning time with them, you will be so thankful you did.
  10. Host a “turkey & touchdowns” day after thanksgiving football watch party. Black Friday is one of the most fun days of the year, football on TV, leftover cold turkey sandwiches & online shopping in your pajamas from your couch! Why not make it an excuse to invite friends over to enjoy the fun.

My enneagram 7 is in overdrive during the holidays, can you tell? Ok you guys, I hope you are truly having the best November ever with your friends & family, tell me what fun things you are doing this month!!!

Deck the Halls

Happy Friday! I have been collecting little bits and pieces of holiday decor and cannot wait to start putting it all up! We are hosting Friendsgiving this year, and having our formal Thanksgiving dinner at my parents house, so really nothing is holding me back. This weekend’s freezing cold temps might just be the push I need!!

Rounding up all of my favorite holiday decor favorites for you as you prepare to deck the halls, and the best part is? Almost all of it is currently on SALE!!

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven

One // Frosted glass ornaments are always my favorite, I buy a few new ones every year and this year went straight for the vanilla wafer, the cotton candy & the gingerbread house! Also obsessed with these tinsel balls!!

Two // My favorite holiday mugs of the season, currently on SALE!! Also still in love with these Santa mugs from last season.

Three // I am a sucker for Christmas stockings, I love the chunky knit poms on these!!!

Four // Whimsical santa plates that aren’t glass?? Yes please! These melamine plates had to come home with me, fun for the girls to use but also look so cute set out on display. They are dishwasher safe too!!

Five // These nostalgic mini ornaments are my favorite year after year, I love them in a vase or an old bread board. They are small but make a big statement!

Six // Tree collars are such a great alternative to a tree skirt, I love that they hide the base of the tree and look so chic! This one has a great price point and looks even better in person!! If you prefer the more traditional route, this pom tree skirt wins at life, and this is another one of my all time favorites.

Seven // One can never have too many festive holiday pillows, yes?! Had to grab this fun lettered one by Rifle Paper. Now to decide which bed or couch it will go on?!

A few more faves worth noting:

LOVE this fun letters to santa mailbox! Would be so cute in any room of the house, especially in an entryway or playroom!!

These matte latte bowls are SO fun and the easiest way to swap out colorful holiday decor throughout the seasons!!

These Santa measuring cups are also the cutest, they’re both practical and darling to set out on open shelves!!

Ok, so tell us, are you decorating already or waiting until after Thanksgiving?! Happy weekend, friends!! XO
