I am allll in the holiday mode: thinking, planning, scheming and BUYING. Hahahaha! And my husband said a big AMEN there. LOL! I have been trying to come up with some unique ideas for all the ladies in your life. I feel like so many bloggers throw random products in your face, hoping you buy something, but I can honestly say these few I am sharing today are either meaningful or things that I have either already purchased or would personally love/have loved for myself.
The Gift of the Day Towels
These are personalized hand towels that have your family’s handwritten recipe or notes right on the towel. So, think of your mom or grandmother’s favorite recipe. All you do is snap a picture of it with your phone and email it to her. That’s it! I simply can’t think of anything more special! And of course, it doesn’t have to be a recipe. This could be any handwritten note. Such a heartfelt gift! From now until November 15, she is offering 15% off your entire order with code Memory15. You can find her on Instagram or her website .
Audrey Durden Monogrammed Gifts
Monograms is just a classic look that never goes out of style! Give me allll the monograms. In fact, when my kids were in diapers my husband always said I was going to walk in one day with a monogrammed bag of diapers. I just LOVE them and don’t know of any lady that doesn’t! Whether it’s on a necklace, bracelet, ice bucket, dish towel, pitcher, Audrey has you covered. Everything in her shop is beyond adorable! Here are just a few ideas. You can find her on Instagram or Etsy. *Be on the lookout for a giveaway of hers coming soon!
Let’s not even talk about how much of this I have. It’s quite the collection because it is so stinkin’ adorable! I mean, if you’re like me and you love to celebrate, you need this in your life. Perfect to add to YOUR Christmas list, but I also had the idea of how fun it would be to purchase for others because you can always add to their collection of attachments for future gifts. I personally just bought a teacher one and love knowing I can get her attachments as other gifts down the road. I know they have been having a 20% off sale with a free Christmas attachment, but I think it may end tomorrow so hurry. I am betting they may have another one before Christmas, although I don’t know that for sure. Be sure to head on over.
Coffee Table Books
I love a good coffee table book! In fact, I love them so much that I went to a Favorite Things Christmas party last year and took 3 of these Southern Living Christmas books. And instead of gifting with a card, you can always write a sweet message on the inside of the cover. Southern Living is obviously a favorite of mine, but I have several James Farmer and Carolyne Roehm’s books that are favorites as well! I can get lost for hours in pictures of these homes, tablescapes, decorations and recipes.
Themed Gift Basket
I just love a collection of themed items as a gift and then gifting inside a basket or bowl. Whether it’s kitchen goodies such as a recipe book, cloth napkins, kitchen towel, spatula, etc. and presented in a beautiful mixing bowl. Or a basket perhaps with a coffee table book, coasters, candles, etc. You get the idea! Doesn’t that just sound like something you’d love to open. The options are endless here. There are so, so many themed ideas to gift.
I hope this has given you at least one idea, friends! These are all gifts I love enough to share with you and either already have or would love for myself! I have already started my Christmas shopping. My goal is to have everything bought this month. Making my lists and checking it twice. Happy Shopping!
