I am so excited to share some specially curated items with you today that I know you guys are going to love not for sharing with friends and family but maybe you’ll even find a little something for yourself or to add to your wishlist as we approach one of the busiest holiday seasons of the year.
To make things just a little easier for you, I’ve done some of the heavy lifting for you by providing each of you with some of my favorite items from some of my favorite brands and places to shop.
It was difficult for me to narrow it down to only a few categories but below you’ll find some of my faves in home, for him and her, for kitchen and entertaining and for families. I sure hope you find some things that you like and, even better, that you feel you or someone you love, just won’t be able to live without.
As you read and shop below, you can click on the links under each of the listed images to go directly to the product of your interest. Many of the products you will see below are affiliate links and I will receive a small commission from your purchase but does not affect your purchase price. As always I am so thankful for your support in many ways around here and this is just one of the ways I can support my family while doing what I love and also continue to create meaningful content for each of you! THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING ME!
GIFTS FOR THE HOME
Of course I’m beginning here with gifts for the home because it’s just so stinking fun to decorate and just happens to be one of my favorite areas to gift. Of special mention below (while ALL of them are my faves) are the throw (top left) and the diffuser. Throws are an easy gift as they can serve so any purposes in the home and I’m all about my oils and diffusers right now for not only making our home smell scrumptious but for fighting nasty colds and germs throughout the season.
GIFTS FOR KITCHEN + ENTERTAINING
Okay, maybe I lied. Give me all the fun products and gadgets and decor for the kitchen. I know you guys are with me. I absolutely adore anything in my home that gives me the opportunity to add a bit of flair and personality and from the items below, the vintage wall basket and those striped linen napkins. My goodness, guys. You’re probably thinking OMG I have enough linens. I just need you to know there’s no such thing. The striped ones below and somewhat of a staple and can go with just about any tabletop decor or design. They have quickly become some of my faves. I even love taking this beyond the table to our bathroom. I love the idea of placing napkins such as these in a basket on the counter in a bathroom and having them at the ready for guests to use and toss into a separate basket after each use.
GIFTS FOR HIM
I’m pretty sure Larry wil get all of this for Christmas. (surprise Larry!) This one was so fun to make as I absolutely adore shopping for friends but I LOVE shopping for my mister. Two of my favorites here are the docking station because it’s handmade and something you won’t see everyday. It’s perfect for a nightstand if you have space for it there or for the top of a dresser in a bedroom or closet. Second fave would be that Le Labo scent set. These are OUR favorite scents. I love that Le Labo is natural and made from some the highest quality oils. You best believe they are all worth the price (a little more on the expensive side) and the bonus…they’re for both male and female. Don’t tell Larry but when I buy them for him…they’re really for me too. Shhhh…
GIFTS FOR HER
OMG. This may sound crazy but this list was harder for me, friends. I’m not sure why but it could have SOMETHING to do with the fact that us girls have so much to choose from and most of us are always buying for ourselves. Just me?
Pics from this list: the Aritzia blanket scarf and the Honest Beauty facial oil. The blanket scarves I’ve literally not been able to live without over the past couple of years. They’ve been wrapped around me only, me + my kids at sports events and even served as comfort on the grass, as the name states, as a blanket when I’ve forgotten to pack one. It’s a staple as far as I’m concerned and I’m also slightly obsessed with facial oils over the year. I’ve seen a real difference in my complexion since I decided to begin using them and this one from Honest is one of the best.
These lists are by no means exhaustive but I hope you find something that you love or that you know friends and family will love. Thanks for letting me share some of my favorite things with you all!
