Things I Love Thursday {GIFT IDEAS} // 12.05.13

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 Stuffers
Thoughtful 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.)
Make Up | 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.
One of my favorite annual gifts is an Anthropologie Mug | The GOLD are new this year and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that one will find its way into my stocking!
Hostess Gift 
(For all those holiday parties you're going to!)
Sea Salt Caramels
A bottle of wine wrapped in a dishtowel | I like this one, this one, and this one for the holidays.

A candle | And not just any candle… My absolute favorite candle is Volcano from Anthropologie. This scent comes in lots of sizes and styles. I cannot describe to you how much I love the way this smells.
Linen napkins | I'm dying over these ones from Mark & Graham

Anything from Copper Pot Traditions | I can personally recommend this one or this one. Delicious and wrapped so beautifully for gift-giving!
Under the Tree
A Coffee Table Book | Well-Read WomenSavage Beauty, or Every Day Counts
Leisurely Reading Literature | I love all my 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
A gift card to Stitch Fix | It's just so much fun!
Egg Dish for baubles | Would be especially thoughtful if you also gifted a little bauble to put in it!
Another of my annual favorites is the 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.
