Aka…A gift guide for HER. Your Mom, bestie, sister, Mother In Law, Grandma…all of the special ladies that deserve to be wowed over the Holidays. And this post had to be called My Favorite Things to pay homage to the Holiday song AND because of my 8th grade debut as Liesel in my middle school production of The Sound of Music.
So let’s get right to it- this fleece pullover. Hello, COZY. My Mom (best gift giver EVER) got it for me for Christmas last year and although my time in it was limited then (I was pregnant), I’m definitely making up for lost time in it now. I love that I can wear it at home with sweats or leggings and then wear it out to run errands or for drop off with jeans and sneakers. Austin says I look “sporty” in it. I’ll take the compliment seeing as I’m anything but these days.
I thought this post would be fun because some of the best gifts I’ve ever gotten are probably not what you would expect (there’s a few randoms for sure) and they’re mostly things that I would never actually buy myself (like these Ugg slippers). But for the most part, they are things I LOVE and use all the time. Take for instance, my GLAMbox. It sits (so pretty btw) on my counter and keeps ALL of my beauty and makeup organized. It frees up drawer space and I’ve used it every single day for almost 3 years and it still looks perfect. Same with my Nespresso…I LIVE for it and don’t know what I would do without it. Seriously, one of the best parts of my day is making and enjoying my morning coffee. And I have to mention one of the best gifts I’ve EVER gotten has been…wait for it…this Shop Vac.
You know I love to clean and organize and this baby is a game changer. I can literally vacuum my courtyard, garage and car out in about 10 minutes with it. It’s super powerful and one of those life tools I’m so glad we have. I especially enjoyed it when I was on my pregnant cleaning spree and often found myself using the attachments to clean the corners of my stairway and the dusty, gross crevice where the carpet meets the baseboards. #ihaveissues
Then there are these baskets, gifted to me by my Step Father who loves to organize as much as I do. I showed them to him one day as a solution for all of the toys in my family room and he surprised me with them the next day! Seriously, they look great and can store a LOT of stuff. And I have to mention the luxurious beauty goodies that I’ve grown to love over the years…like this body cream, this body polish and my favorite face cream. All are little things that make me really really happy and are worth sharing in case you need a last minute gift for someone special. How is your Holiday shopping coming? Will you shop this weekend?
