Does anyone else feel like this month is flying by? Being that we move practically every year, I always have my Christmas cards out the first week of the month so that everyone can get our new address via the return label, but here we are in the second week of December and– YIKES– only half of mine are addressed.
I’ve also fallen a little behind on my Christmas shopping this year with LTJG Husband at sea, but I started doing some online shopping today and felt so inspired by all the adorable gifts out there that I made this simple home gift guide for those of you that– like me– love to cozy up your place with dreamy items like these….
Instead of using one large vase, divide your flower bouquet into these six small vases for an adorable centerpiece or scatter them around the house to spread the beauty and fragrance beyond the dining table.
This one would make an adorable stocking stuffer!
There is no way we could have a bar cart in the house with the ages our wild boys are at right now, but if we could this would definitely be the one I’d want on display.
I love this dainty idea for mixing up photo displays.
Most votives have writing or decoration on the outside, but I love that on this one the burning candle lights up an interior message (plus, I love that saying so much right now being that my three year old asks me to read him that book every night these days).
This cookbook is filled with gorgeous pictures and delicious recipes. Please try the lemon butter fish recipe with capers, it is melt-in-your-mouth amazing.
This wall marquee has so much character; it would be so much fun to put up on a simple wall.
I absolutely love throw blankets, and this one looks classic, cozy, and super warm.
SOMEDAY my husband and I will get to sleep in again, and when we do I hope we have breakfast in bed off trays as cute as these.
Anyone that has had dinner at our place knows I am obsessed with the cotton napkins from World Market. I love to mix and match all their patterns and colors with white dinnerware for a festive but rustic dinner table look.
These candles are classic gift material. They are gorgeous and smell so amazing that you may cry when you burn it to the end. But then again, the holder is so adorable you could easily keep it around to use for another purpose, like holding jewelry. There is no way I’ll be throwing mine out when it is used up!
Happy shopping, friend!
