Gift Guide: For Him

Can you believe we're less than TWO weeks out from Christmas? Ahh! Where is the time going? We just got back from celebrating Christmas down in Southern California with my family, and it's gotten us majorly in the spirit, not to mention both kids wishlists have now doubled with ideas on what they want! #oops!

On to the men's wishlist...the hardest one IMO...

Electric Corkscrew Wine Opener: How handsome is this wine opener? Perfectly masculine and functional! Win-win.
YETI Duffle Bag: Airtight, waterproof and submersible? What man wouldn't want this bulletproof carryall?
Menorah Socks: Because honestly, these were the best print of all the J.Crew men's socks.
Bose Wireless Headphones: So he can run with the dog and not get tangled up with the leash!
HydroFlask Low Ball: So he can drink on the go? Or keep it cool wherever he goes? Ha!
Single Malt Glass: So he can drink in home.
The North Face Fleece Vest: For the man who runs hot, but needs a little warmth!
Shun Chef's Knife: The ultimate knife...super sharp and worth every penny! We have this brand and swear by it.
TOMS Slip On Shoe: On my husband's wishlist this year...easy to slip on and off!
Herschel Supply Co Wallet: Because he can always use a new wallet!
Billabong Board Shorts: A good reminder to escape the cold this winter!

And just in case you missed it...

Gift Guide: For Her

Happy December and Happy Full-Swing Holiday Season!

Today's gift guide is all about the gals! Whether you're shopping for yourself, your wife, your mom, your sister or your friend, I've got you covered! I have first-hand experience with many of these wishlist items and know any woman would be thrilled to receive something on this list!

Velvet Headband: I have this headband in black {so safe, I know!} and love how it can instantly make an outfit feel a bit more festive and/or fancy! I am definitely thinking I need another color!
Slip Pillowcase: Ok, this is definitely more of a luxury item, but hey! When they say it has "anti-aging" benefits, who can argue with that? Personally, I'd love to try it out to avoid breakouts and hair breakage!
Terez Sparkle Leggings: I mean, how fun are these??
Barefoot Contessa's Cook Like A Pro: I love love love me some Ina Garten, so naturally her latest cookbook is on my wishlist! It makes for a great hostess gift too!
Cookbook & Tablet Stand: How pretty is this stand? Perfect for my new Barefoot Contessa cookbook or for whipping up a dessert a la Pinterest!
Laura Mercier Mini Eye Collection: I luuuurve Laura Mercier caviar sticks and think this would be a fun way to test out other colors. But, to be clear, the "Burnished Bronze" color is the best!
Mini Circle Belt Bag: How fun is this alternative to a crossbody bag or a clutch for going out? Definitely need this!
Madewell Fringe Earrings: I love how delicate these statement earrings are! And all three colors are perfection!
Krisin Ess Flat Iron: I've had my flat iron since college, so I'm due for a new one. This one gets rave reviews and is under $100!
Baggu Pouch Set: The best bags for makeup, carryall for your purse or keeping your jewelry together while you travel!
EMU slippers: I just got a cheap pair of these to try out, but can imagine using them more as house slippers during the summer. Cozy, but not too hot!
BRYEDO Gypsy Water: Ok, this is a splurge for sure, but hear me out! I have the Mojave Ghost scent and get compliments everywhere I go. Random people stop me at CVS...or at work...or at the airport! It's that good! And yet super subtle. I never notice it while I wear it and I'm always surprised others can smell it. Worth every penny!

Happy shopping!

Gift Guide: For the Kiddos

Yay! My first gift guide of the season! 

This one is for the kiddos...who seem to get harder and harder to buy for each year! Especially brothers or sisters who are relatively close in age...they both seem to want the same thing! So this year, we're opting for more gifts they can share!
Magna-tiles // We've had Magformers before, but many times when I pick Wyatt up from pre-school, he's playing with these magna-tiles! I think both boys would enjoy playing with them. And as a bonus, they're on sale right now too!
Moon in my Room // Ethan's been into space a lot this past year, so I know he'll love this moon that lights up and shows the different phases of the moon!
Lite-Brite Magic Screen // A cult classic! I remember playing with this as a child!
We're All Wonders Book // A sweet book about "choosing kind".
The Incredibles Action Figures // With the recent release of Incredibles 2, this is sure to be a hit!
Patagonia Hooded Puffer Jacket // Wyatt could definitely use a new jacket {poor kid mostly gets hand-me-downs from Ethan!}.
Nintendo Classic Edition // Another cult classic that I know the boys will love!
Instax Camera // The boys always love taking pictures with my iPhone so I would think this would be a hit!
Wooden Cash Register // Every now and then, the boys really get into playing restaurant where one will be the waiter and the other will be the cook {and we are the customers, naturally!}. I think they would love this play cash register!
Indoor Trampoline // Ethan wrote a letter to Santa requesting a trampoline. Unfortunately, this time of year doesn't lend itself too well to outside jumping so I figured this indoor version would do! And there's enough room for both boys! 
Wireless Microphone // My boys are BIG hams and I just know they would love performing on our catwalk with the help of this microphone!
