Did y’all have a good weekend? I mostly fought with our Christmas tree and I’m not sure who won! I guess I did, because I salvaged it from the broken-down-tree-graveyard, but I couldn’t get the burned out lights lit, even with this tool. It showed the lights working, but not when they were on the strand. Soooo frustrating! So, I bought several new strings of lights and got busy restringing! In the end, it looks pretty good- I can’t wait to show you the pics soon, but if you want a sneak peek before then, see Stories this afternoon!
I also started shopping for our annual Favorite Things party– it’s coming up in a few weeks and our limit is $25, so I thought that would be a perfect first gift guide collage to make for you. Truthfully, I love making collages (I’m old school and still use Polyvore + Pickmonkey to make most of mine!) and it’s especially fun when I love everything in the collage!
I’m glad I’m sharing this Stocking Stuffer gift guide with you today because, with these great sales and prices, I’m worried the things will sell out fast! With the exception of two things on this list, everything is $25 or less! Can you guess what I’m bringing to our party??
Earrings • These earrings are sparkling and stunning in person and look very classy. They are great for moms of babies or toddlers because the kids won’t be able to pull on them. But they’re also a pretty everyday or dress-up earring. They’re normally $32, but on sale now for $24! They’re on the smaller side- see the online photo for a good size representation.
Beanie • Oh, this is just adorable and fun! This color looks great on everyone and when you need a warm hat, why not have a fun pom pom on top?! It also comes in 3 neutral colors- grey, black and white.
Reed Diffuser • These reed diffusers smell divine! And they even have a ‘balsam & cedar’ scent that is perfect if you want the smell of a real tree, but have a fake one! (raises hand). They also just look nice in your room.
#1 Teacher Frame • Teacher gifts can be tricky- we usually end up getting a gift card, which I know they appreciate, but I thought this framed ornament was too cute and more personal. It’s 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches and holds a 2 1/2 inch square photo.
Personalized Keychains • I first saw these lettered keychains in the catalog and immediately tore the page as a reminder not to forget about them! They make a sweet little gift on their own, but also a cool gift tag. An honorable mention also goes to this faux fur pom pom keychain that I couldn’t fit in the collage! #sorrypom
5 Year Memory Book • On a recent trip to the bookstore, I picked up this small book because it reminded me of the gratitude journal I used to keep in my 20s, but have gotten out of the habit of keeping. This book has the date at the top of each page, for example “April 23” and then lines to jot thoughts for the next five years. It could become a beloved keepsake, especially if you write things about your kids in it because they love to hear stories about themselves! I like these pens to go with it!
Leopard Scarf • I’m pretty sure everyone needs a pop of leopard in their life. If you know someone who is deficient in that area, you can rectify the situation with this leopard scarf, on sale for only $15! Because it’s lightweight, they can wear it year round!
Kate Spade Tumbler • This colorful insulated tumbler is sure to brighten someone’s day! I’ve seen them at most places for $20 and up, but I just ordered them from Amazon for only $12! They are delightful and so pretty in person! This one holds 20 ounces.
Reversible Plaid Scarf • I’m loving the bright pink colors in this reversible plaid scarf. One side is solid pink/red and the other side is plaid! The perfect way to perk up your Fall/Winter outfit!
Brush Set & Case • This rose gold brush kit is extra special with the compact travel size and lovely case. It comes with the three essential basic brushes you need for applying makeup- a blush brush, eyeshadow brush, and shadow liner brush. You dip the angled brush in your shadow (wet or dry) and then apply it like liner and smudge to soften the look.
Swell Water Bottle • I was late to the swell water bottle game, thinking I wouldn’t like having to untwist the cap to take a drink. Well, I was wrong! I’m a huge have of the slim size that fits easily in your car’s cup holder and bag, and the insulation works big time! It keeps your water cold all day long! It’s also a bit of a fashion statement when they looks so dang cute! Of course, I like the gold, but they come in a variety of colors and patterns.
