Stocking Stuffers for the Ladies & Gents

This gift guide is my favorite every year!! Stocking stuffers are so fun and my mom always nails our stockings. Often our favorite gifts were tucked away in there! Usually this is where we'd get experiences, like sporting events, concerts, or when I was younger, my dad would get us tickets to the ballet for our dad & daughter dates. So special!! My mom usually tucks in undies, something beauty-esque (polish, scrub, hair clips, etc.), a book and a couple other trinkets. 


Ladies first!






one: my favorite Lemongrass Body Scrub and Body Butter. The smell is so fresh and the scrub gets your hands and feet so soft! On sale until Wednesday!
 two: I always get socks in my stockings and for good reason-- I love being cozy! These are so soft.
 three: if you're not using a foundation brush to do your foundation, you should be! These fit perfectly in a stocking.
four: I love these soft hair ties...no more ouch!
 five: 3 different, yet equally amazing mini face oils. On sale now!
 six: Growing in Gratitude-- I got this book in my stocking last year and it was so, so good. Highly recommend!
 seven: Recipe cards for the one who loves to cook and bake.
 eight: I think this velvet clutch just might fit in a stocking and you could fill the clutch with some fun littler items! It comes in a bunch of colors.
 nine: love this portable wine mug...and monogram it for a special touch!
ten: tortoise shell hair clips, practical and cute!
 eleven: I tried these North Face mittens on last week at the mall and they were amazing...promptly added to my Christmas list ;) I think mittens keep your hands warmer than gloves. The inside is all fuzzy polar fleece.
 twelve: monogram purse pouch. So sweet and vintage!
 thirteen: my friend recommended this hydrating mask the other week...it goes on this deep green color. So fun! It's made in Kauai, one of my family's favorite places on earth, and it's all safe!



Filling my husband's stocking is so fun for me! (Not sure if he feels the same about putting mine together...ha!!) I always do Christmas boxers, his favorite candy, a bag of coffee beans, maybe a pair of gloves, a hat or something wintery that he needs, and a couple other fun things. This year he's getting a new silicone wedding band because his recently broke and he likes to wear that kind the most...go figure! ;)




one: we've wanted this Ring doorbell camera for a while. I think it'd be great in a stocking! Under $100.
 two: some tech savy driving gloves.
 three: Air Pods are at the top of my husband's wishlist! They'll make such a difference in experience for someone who likes to work out a lot. 
four: beautiful and functional wood and marble coasters.
 five: this Charcoal Cleansing Bar is great for ladies and gents (it's for your face), but I think it's a perfect stocking stuffer for the guys. It will last upwards of 8 months!
 six: if you have a hubby with a beard, this beard oil is awesome!
 seven: we got the Meater+ for my dad this year! He loves to grill meat and this thermometer connects to your phone so it keeps you posted on how the meat is doing and when it'll be done to perfection!
 eight: my dad swears by these Tiles-- you connect them to your keys or a suitcase, or whatever you don't want to lose ;), and then you can find it through wifi. If you lose your keys then you can use the app on your phone to make the tile sound so you can find it. If you lose your suitcase in travel, then you'd use the app to locate it's location. It's so cool!
 nine: like I said, I always get McCann Christmas boxers in his stocking. I love these and for under $10...yes!
ten: this is a great gift for the ski lover. It is padded, so it protects your skiis while they travel!
 eleven: a handy little speaker so your guy can blast his music wherever he goes ;)


Is there an item you ALWAYS get in your stocking or put in someone else's?! I want to hear!

Happy Stocking Stuffing, friends!

O Christmas Tree 2019

Oh, friends! I'm so excited to be here sharing our Christmas tree this year! We went to a sweet tree farm on Black Friday to get it and my husband picked it in about 4 minutes of being there. I had some anxiety on the way home that we didn't even look at other trees much, but once it got put in place I really loved it! It's the perfect size (ironically, it's smaller than our apartment trees because we don't have the best place for it here).

Here she is!


Lincoln looking thrilled that a tree from outside is now inside ;)

I ordered some matte navy ball ornaments to tie in the blue from around our house and I love them! I only got 12, I wish I got more! Maybe I'll add to the collection next year. 


While I didn't win the flocking debate (my husband didn't grow up knowing what a flocked tree was so he didn't want one) I did stuff some flocked branches into our tree to give it a bit more of a "full look". If I had it my way, our whole tree would be flocked ;) Maybe next year...

I draped white wooden beads as garland around the tree and I think it's really cute! Usually I do ribbon, but I like switching things up from year to year.


I got this pretty garland from Hearth & Hand via Target and I love it! It has some blue berries in it to tie in with the blue colors we have throughout the house. I wrapped some twinkle lights (battery operated) around it and filled in some holes with real greenery and viola! 



I'm a sucker for white roses! I just add some holiday greens this time a year and it's so festive.



There you have it!

Last week I went shopping for you in prep for the big sales! I tried on tons of items and I'm only showing you my very favorites! Unless otherwise noted, the clothes are true to size.

LOFT: 50% off your purchase with code FRIYAY

Lou & Grey Signature Softblend Sweat Pants-- if you get one thing this Black Friday, let it be these pants!! I live in them. They're the softest things I've ever worn! Come in black and gray and they're this cute crop style.


Pink Flecked Sweater -- this was one of my favorite sweaters I tried on. So soft and loved the fleck!



Poncho (loved this with a turtleneck under it!

White lace blouse-- the detail on the neck and shoulders was so pretty!



Berry colored peplum blouse- great for holiday events!



Plaid Cardigan-- absolutely LOVE this one!! Wasn't itchy either.

Plaid dress-- I'd size down in this.



Striped sweater-- comes in other colors/patterns.

Covers the bottom, which is great for leggings!



Eyelet blouse-- I needed a size down in this (they didn't have an XS, so I'm wearing a S and it had too much room, but I loved this!)



Floral Jumpsuit-- this was so beautiful! I love this for a special occasion.


Madewell: 30% off everything with code GIFTWELL (I wanted everything I tried on!! ;))

Hunter Green Sweater / Jeans (they came home with me! SO GOOD!)









I'll be sharing some more ideas on Instagram throughout the weekend and hope to update this post with other sales I find! 

Happy Shopping!
xoxo
