So I realize I’ve been pretty MIA from the world of blogging for a while, but I couldn’t let the holiday season go by without putting together a gift guide! Full disclosure, these guides are basically just things I like that I think other people would like too. Maybe that’s every gift guide though…?
Let’s get to it.
Snood is a great word. If you live anywhere that gets even remotely cold, a substantial collection of scarves is a must. I’ve been digging the neutral, cozy, chunky look this winter…and not just because they look like they’d be good to nap in. A lot of the amazingly cozy looking scarves are made overseas, but this one is made in the US, and as of 12/5 has Christmas delivery guaranteed! 1. A chunky knit cowl scarf/snood.
2. Yes – I’m still into subscription boxes. And yes, it would be more financially smart to just go to the library, but a 3 month book subscription is a gift that keeps on giving! Well, for 3 months. Book of the Month lets you choose one of 5 books each month, and the options are pretty broad. Cheesy romance? Yup. Murder mysteries? Got it! Non-Fiction? Check. BotM will introduce your giftee to some great authors…and something to do when they’re cozied up on the couch with that scarf!! 🙂 Book of the Month 3-Month Subscription.
Okay so I hadn’t planned on doing a themed list, but when you’re cozied up in your scarf reading a new book, it only makes sense that you’d be drinking a glass of wine, right? And how are you going to open that wine? This fab bottle opener. Joe and I have this one, and I love it. Plus everyone could use a corkscrew that doesn’t feel like it’ll fall apart if you twist too hard, right? 3. Rabbit Wing Corkscrew.
Continuing the trend…(seriously, as I was pulling things for my list I didn’t choose themed things purposefully!) Having friends over for a movie night? Bringing snacks out on a nice serving tray of some sort makes you look like you have your shit together – even if you don’t. 4. White Marble Cheese Board.
I’ve read review after review saying this lotion gives people the best night of sleep ever. It apparently smells amazing (I have yet to try it) and has the same effect as taking a melatonin before bed. Sounds perfect, right? It also has the added benefit of being made with natural ingredients and cruelty free. Doesn’t get better than that! 5. LUSH Sleepy Lotion.
I discovered this website when putting together a wish list for myself, and fell in love! I’m not an eye mask user, but these designs were too cute not to post. They’d be perfect for anyone that a) travels a lot or b) needs total darkness to get some shut-eye. For the record, I put the 6. Set of Travel Eye Masks. laundry bags on my list.
Everyone could use a little bit of well designed trivia in their lives, right!? This book seems like it would be a great conversation starter, or something to leave on your desk if you need a quick brain break. 7. Random Illustrated Facts.
Each of these notepads are only $4, and as I’m typing this out I can think of the perfect use for every style. Grocery lists, to do lists, doodling….plus they’re just tiny and cute! Clearly running out of steam on this whole wordsmithing thing. 8. Colorful Mini Notepads.
So there we have it! Gift Guide 2017. Unintentionally ‘cozied up on the couch’ themed for the most part. Also, I guess I should include a note that none of this is sponsored by any of the brands I included – but I do get a free book if you sign up for BotM through my link! 🙂
Happy Hump Day, and happy 19 days until Christmas!
