Good Morning! With just about one week to go, how is everyone’s holiday shopping going? Personally, I have to shop for a few more family members and hope to check off my list this week.
Continuing on with this year’s gift guide, here are some suggestions for a friend or even a bestie. This is one of my favorite people to shop for as I would love anything on this list! Anything else in mind you would love to gift to a girlfriend? As the saying goes, “one for you, one for me”. 🙂
Have a great start to your week and happy Monday! xoxo
I know we are past the gift-giving frenzy of the holidays, but there is one gift-giving trend for 2013 that has caught my attention. The monogrammed gift. Monogrammed gifts provide an extra touch of personalization for ‘that someone special’ and I’ve been seeing initials on everything–from mugs to jewelry to shirts. I remember when I was younger and would go to stores like Things Remembered to get items monogrammed for my family and friends. It just made my gift more unique (and also showed I put some thought into the gift!). Well, I personally like this idea and would love to buy one or two Anthropologie mugs below.
While the holidays may be over, there is that one ‘holiday’ coming up dedicated to you and your special someone where you might want to think about gifting something personalized. Valentine’s Day. Too early?
With two weeks (and counting!) until the big Christmas Day, I am dedicating this week to gift guides for the various special and VIP people in your life. Let’s start with gifts for your girlfriends, from BFFs to co-workers. Have you started shopping yet??
Between decorating my new house and finding new inspiration to spruce up my place for upcoming holiday fetes, I am sensing that my creativity meter is at an all-time high. Whether it’s a chevron pattern, stripes (the old standby), a flower motif, leopard, or what have you, I love playing with patterns for home decor. Whether you are buying a new rug, table linens, or mirror, here’s some inspiration…do share what you like/dislike!
Since I will be throwing a couple of holiday parties this year, I have been on the hunt for decorative pieces for my house and in search of yummy, but easy recipes. In today’s Part 1 of the holiday guide, I’d like to share some shopping finds to either 1) accent your home for your party or 2) bring as a gift to the next party you attend. Part 2 tomorrow will be decorating yourself (finding that perfect outfit!) and planning the cocktail and dinner menu.
Here we go!
