The holidays are upon us and Christmas is just around the corner.
For this weeks Things I Love, I thought I'd do a little "year-in-review" of some of my favorite things and categorize them for present ideas. Admittedly, these are female-focused… but you'll find a few things here for the fellas.
Stocking StuffersThoughtful baubles | Latitude Necklace (Honor the place you wed, where your took your honeymoon, where you got engaged, etcetera.) Custom Brass State Ring (It's important to celebrate your roots.)
Gimme Brow (I love this stuff! It subtly and effectively enhances brows, and adds some control), Elf Blush and Bronzer Duo (You cannot beat the $3 price tag. This is often available at Target. The blush and bronzer are close dupes for NARS Orgasm blush and Laguna bronzer.), Essie Polish in my (current) favorite shade.
Anthropologie Mug | The GOLD are new this year and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that one will find its way into my stocking!
(For all those holiday parties you're going to!)Sea Salt Caramels
this one, this one, and this one for the holidays.
these ones from Mark & Graham
Copper Pot Traditions | I can personally recommend this one or this one. Delicious and wrapped so beautifully for gift-giving!
Under the TreeA Coffee Table Book | Well-Read Women, Savage Beauty, or Every Day Counts
Penguin Classics because they are so beautifully bound and because they contain wonderful stories too: Wuthering Heights or Pride and Prejudice. Another favorite this year was the Newbery Medal recipient for 2013, The One and Only Ivan. (This is a very quick, very touching read.) Or anything by John Green but especially The Fault in Our Stars
Egg Dish for baubles | Would be especially thoughtful if you also gifted a little bauble to put in it!
Paper Source Wall Art Calendar | I love this style calendar. I've had the pleasure of receiving it for the past several years and it's never been a disappointment.
For the people on your list who have a tremendous capacity for tasteless humor, you cannot beat the deck game, Cards Against Humanity. | Be warned: This is seriously NOT a game for everyone--but can be the BEST game for the right one(s). The two reviews posted HERE will give you some indication.
