Good morning friends! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kind condolences about my dear Grandma Nola. It’s a tough loss and we miss her terribly, but I’m comforted knowing she lived a long, wonderful life. She had friends all over the world, many of which she’s being reunited with in heaven. I can only imagine what that must be like. I also feel her presence with me and she will always be a part of me, no matter where she is.
We actually took some mommy/daughter Christmas photos recently, and I know she’s gonna LOVE how they came out! I can’t wait to share them with you soon! Over the weekend, I got inspired by all the Christmas decor I’ve been seeing everywhere on Instagram. Although I haven’t started decorating yet, I plan to soon. I like to start early so I can enjoy it for a long time.
And I took it one step further and created my first gift guide of the year! This one is full things for your bestie, mom, teacher or YOU! ha! It happens to the best of us! 😉 Since I haven’t started ANY shopping yet, these are giving me good ideas for the women in my own life.
HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE | STOCKING STUFFERS
Bliss Throw • I don’t know a single person who doesn’t appreciate a cozy throw blanket and this one has rave reviews. It’s plush and soft and comes in a ton of colors to fit any preference or decor. It’s practical for snuggling and also looks great in a woven basket or draped casually over your sofa or at the end of your bed. And it’s only $39.
Gold Bangle • This delightful gold Kate Spade bangle is inscribed on the inside with the sentiment “heart of gold.” Save this one for someone extra special. It looks great worn alone, or layered with other bracelets.
Gorjana Bar Necklace • For a necklace she can wear everyday, all year long, the Gorjana bar necklace is the answer. It’s super chic and simple, and outstanding quality. I had mine for three years and it wore the heck out of it and it still looked good as new. If you haven’t seen me in it lately, it’s because we had an unfortunate indecent where I was carrying Jordan and she accidentally pulled it off my neck and it broke. “Sorry I broke your necklace mommy.” #sweetgirl
Beanie • How cute is this beanie with faux fur pom?! It’s one I actually just ordered for myself. 😉
Coffee/Tea Warmer • I have to admit, lots of things on this list are influenced by my personal preferences, including this coffee/tea warmer. I use it everyday and like it so much that I bought a second one! I keep one on my desk in my office and one on my nightstand. My morning cup of coffee sits on my desk as I get to work, and my evening peppermint tea sits on my nightstand to help me unwind for the night. This one is extra chic in a white marble with an easy on/off switch and red light to let you know it’s on. It’s from Amazon, and although it’s not in the collage, these beautiful plaid fringe scarves make great gifts too. They’re only $12 with FREE prime shipping! See them styled in my October Amazon Haul.
Monogram Tile Mug • This stylish monogramed mug makes a great gift on it’s own, but you could take it one step further and add in your loved one’s favorite coffee beans or tea, or gift it with the coffee/tea warmer.
Lipstick Set • All the shades she’ll ever need from lovely neutral to bold red in a luxurious balm-like formula. It’s by Bobbi Brown, so you know it’s good!
Monogram Keychain • Everything feels more special and personal with a monogram or initial on it. These keychains are super cute with little tassels attached. You can gift them on their own, or attach them to the wrapped gift as a gift tag.
Notebook Set • I don’t know about you, but my stocking could be filled with nothing but pretty pens and paper goods and I would be a happy girl!
Stone Facial Roller • Now here’s one I don’t have (yet!), but have heard amazing things about. You roll the beautiful rose quartz in upward motions on your face to reduce puffiness and wrinkles by helping drain the lymphatic system. Facial rolling is said to be super relaxing and the rose quartz corresponds to the heart charka, the energy center of LOVE.
Marble Phone Case + Pop Socket • I get asked almost daily about my iPhone case and pop socket, so I know y’all are interested in it (must be all those mirror selfies!). Speaking of, the pop socket is actually useful. It helps you grip your phone better and makes for taking a selfie easier. I have a selfie tutorial saved to my Instagram Story Highlights if you need a lesson! Hint: you turn the phone upside down!
Candle Trio • I’m of the opinion that most people don’t splurge on nice candles for themselves, that’s why they make such perfect gifts. You cannot go wrong with this gorgeous set that smells divine and burns beautifully. For extra bang for your buck, you can divide the set into singles and give each candle separately!

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? Last year I was so good and prepared with a stocked gift closet, but this year, not so much!
Have a great day!
