Gift Guide: For Him


YSL cologone / phone + wallet case / plaid shirt (under$25!) / striped sweater with elbow patch / fitness watch / tie box set (tie, socks, pocket square) / whiskey rocks (under $20!) / non-iron button up shirt / maccasin slippers / wireless headphones / plaid PJs / beanie /

Is it just me, or are guys HARD to shop for? My dad, my brother, my husband...ah! It's so helpful when they provide me with a list, so I took their wish lists and made them into the Gift Guide For Him. I also threw in a bunch of things *I* would love to gift the guys in my life.

I got my husband this cologone on our wedding day, so it's a favorite of mine. We went to the store together and tried on a bunch of different scents, then surprised each other with the one we liked best. This was the winner! This particular cologne comes in a set with a small travel sized bottle and a normal size that you can leave on the dresser. In our house, we're huge fans of things you don't have to iron, so this shirt is a favorite. I got my husband wiskey stones last year and they were a hit. Recently, he came home with these wireless headphones, because often he has to work at night on his computer, so I wear the headphones to watch my tv shows ;) This year he's asking for a few new warm shirts and sweaters (I'm obsessed with elbow patches!) and he's been wanting slippers for a while now too.

We absolutely LOVE this record. It has 2 discs, so 4 sides of great oldies and christmas classics. My husband is obsessed with vinyl and records, so this would have been the perfect gift for him!

He also loves our french press! I wish I could have you all over in the morning for my handsome husband's coffe! I don't drink coffee, so we don't bond over that ;)



Here are lots of other gifts at various price points for the men:




What are you getting the guys in your life? Would love to hear more ideas!

ATTENTION GALS! Anthropologie is having a 30% off all clothing sale now. No code needed! This never happens! I LOVE this top for the holidays.

Gift Guide: For the Home


DETAILScandle (under $20, 8 scents! Favorites: vanilla cinnamon, pumpkin, oatmeal cooie) / coasters (lots of colors!) / gold bar cart (on sale now!) / hello lovely marble cutting board / DIY skin care book / hello it's me doormat / holiday dish towels / 2017 wall calendar (under $30!)/ choose joy pillow /

Next up in our gift guide series are gifts for the home! If you know someone who just moved into a new place, is a newlywed, have a friend who LOVES home decor (like me!) or are gifting to your sister or mom, here are some of my favorite ideas for you. Each year I ask for a planner and / or a wall calendar. The one above is so cute, with different illustrations for every month. I also love the idea of giving sweet pillow cases (like Choose Joy, or I love this one, too!) Candles are a great gift for anybody! I've never met someone who doesn't like a good candle ;) They make an especially great gift for in laws or a hostess.

Want to pretty up your gifts?! Attach the intial of the person you're gifting to the ribbon on the package. These are so cute and can then be used as ornmaments after!


Don't forget the dudes! Here are some gifts for the home that guys will love. My husband is obsessed with coffee (like the pour over and french press style. We don't even own a coffee maker because he is a snob ;)) so that coffee book or this Chemex would make a great gift for those who love coffee.




A few more gifts for the home, including the softest blankets on the planet!

Our Christmas Tree



It's offically Christme time around here and we're loving it! We got our tree the weekend after Thanksgiving and I'm honestly shocked we found this perfect of a tree for the small space we have to work with! We had a strict "no bigger than 40 inches in diameter" shopping rule and we nailed it ;) I'm happy with the size, too. But most of all, the smell is so refreshing. I don't think we'll ever get rid of it, ha!

We kept it simple this year by using neutral ribbon I found at Hobby Lobby for 50% off. It has the cutest woodland metallic design on it. Then we did all metallic and a few red ball ornaments, mixed with some gold snowflakes. I have a huge collection of personal ornaments that are my parent's house, so when I go next week I'll be bringing a few of those back to further personalize it :) Our tree topper was borrowed from my mother-in-law, so I'm not sure where it's from. My sweet mom bought us our first tree skirt from Pottery Barn as an early Christmas gift! We're cheesy and did a timelapse of us decorating our first tree:

Here she is:


Neutral paper with trees, get it here! I used another wrapping paper to create gift tags tapped on by washi tape.




My bird clip-on ornaments are on sale + free shipping right now! These are the best for patches of the tree that are large, but dont fit an ornament very well.


It's magical at night!

Cheers to many fun memories around our trees, friends!

Did you catch yesterday's Gift Guide? It's a goodie!

Gift Guide: For Her


DETAILS | pj pants / reversable scarf (under $25!) / stripe clutch / kate spade stripe bag / floral phone case / wood carved picture frame (for the home or picture lover!) / pecan pie candle (rum and wine also available!) / lipstick (200+ colors available! I have "speed dial" and "plumful"/ Hunter boots / 2017 planner (this is the brand I get each year and love it!) /

Today I'm sharing a guide to some fun gifts for the ladies in your life. Whether that's a sister, best friend, mom, daughter, or you want to give a little hint to someone else about a gift YOU want, I've gotcha covered!

There are certain gifts that are great for everyone. A candle (especially one that smells like pie...I mean, really!), PJ pants (I tried these on and promptly added them to my Christmas list! SO SOFT), and scarves (these are all around $25!). If you're buying for someone who lives in rainy or cold weather, Hunter Boots are the best. I got them two years ago and wear them all the time in the snow with these inserts. Wearing really thick, tall socks like these (on sale!) is a necessary added layer! 

About every other year I ask for a new perfume, since I'm about out. This year I dont' need one, because my husband got me this Daisy scent for our wedding (so fun!) I LOVE this one especially, though I've always been a big fan of Marc Jacobs, I've never had this one. It's so fresh, simple and sweet. Another great idea is getting these


Need to get gifts for your bridesmaids, sisters, or girlfriends? I adore the Love Ophelia robes I got for myself and my bridesmaids for our wedding!

Finally, here are a bunch more gift ideas for her, a lot of which are under $30!
