Wrapping up the week of gift ideas with accessories! Who doesn't love a pair of shades, a favorite cosmetic, or a piece of jewelry you've had your eye on. Below is my little list, I'm sure you all have your own.
What do you give when it comes to house related gifts? I feel blankets or throws are always a welcomed yet safe option, whereas monogrammed towels are a must 'luxury-felt' item. Everyone should own a monogrammed towel sometime in their lifetime. As simple as it seems, it's something that feels as if it's yours, you have the right to it on a daily basis. One of the very first things I purchased when I moved into my very own place were monogrammed towels. What would you like to receive as a home-related gift?
This gifting idea is mostly Etsy related. If you are and Etsy member, do you choose to have your favorite items listed publicly? Personally I do. I like to also view my friends favorite items, if we have the same taste, I know that most likely the things they save will be items that I will dig too.
And when you have really sweet friends (*insert- Margo)- they can get quite sneaky and look up your favorite saved items, surprising you with a gift they purchased from the very list. SO SWEET!
I like to save both items and specific shops, always knowing they can quickly by re-visited come time to make a little purchase for a friend, a specific event, or to treat myself. What's saved in your favorites? I've also recently been following the same procedure on Pinterest when it comes to favorites.
Hola! I thought it would be a great week to have a bit of fun and feature a few Bada$$ gift ideas for this holiday season, or really it's just an excuse to post a bunch of things things I like. Fun, no?
Today is a compilation of items which I've personally sent to Santa this year on my wish list (aka Husband of the Lifetime):
Thank goodness it's Friday! It's sunny today, not a cloud in the sky, bright and beautiful with a chill in the air. LOVE December, love that it's Friday. Grabbing my caffeine and out to get this day in the books. Have a great one :)
Alrighty now, I've had my faith restored that it's not cheesy to make handmade neck cowls for my friends for Christmas :) I hope they all like them as much as I do. Of course the ones I've made so far are all in my classic 'go to' colors- grey, beige, and aqua (what's new). I just finished a red one to match my new wellies, can't wait to rock it this winter. Just thought I'd share the progress:
My Mom started out making the grey one for me, I then made my first one (the aqua), then made my first gift one, the beige. Got more gift ones to go, better get on it!
Didn't lay it flat or quite even top to bottom, but here's the first gift:
And a peek at me enjoying both my grey cowl, hugging tightly my new white vase. After Hubby D took this pick, he said he wish he got hugs this tight (awww). Guess I really had a 'thang' for that vase.
