The most wonderful time of year is here! The holidays (shopping) season is upon us! I really love everything about the holidays: the music, shopping (sales!), festive decorations, and food… lots and lots of food. There really is nothing I dislike. I don’t even mind trying to find parking at insanely busy malls or longer than usual checkout lines. To celebrate the first shopping weekend of the season, I am sharing my A-Z shopping guide. It includes items from my wish list as well as thinks I am hoping to pick up for family and friends. Enjoy 🙂
Adele: 25 is Adele’s first album in 4 years and it is epic! I have been listening non-stop since it came out last week.
Personalized Book: I picked up one of the for Dash and one for his cousin Xander for Christmas this year!
Clarisonic Mia: I use this religiously every day. Great gift for mom, sister or friend!
Denim: Greg is in need of of a denim upgrade this year. I think this pair will be his new favorite!
Burt’s Bees Family Jammies: Who doesn’t love being matchy-matchy?! These topped Oprah’s favorite things list this year. I picked up the gray ones in the perfect sizes for the whole family.
Gloves: Some how I always lose one. This year, I will keep an extra close eye on this gorgeous pair!
Hope for the Holidays: I am a new fan of Philosophy’s Hope line. This gift set is a great way to try out a few of my favorite products.
Sonix iPhone Case: I got a beautiful new rose gold 6s iPhone a couple months ago and would love to top it with this beautiful case.
J.Crew Everything: J. Crew is outfitting my family for the holidays. Here are a few pieces we picked up. PS- J. Crew is having a great 30% off sale on most items and J.Crew Factory has everything priced at 50% off. Stock up!
IKEA Play Kitchen: Dash loves playing in our kitchen so we just might get him one of his very own this year.
Living Proof No Frizz Set: This is the absolute best product I have found for my hair. This gift set is a great way to try it out.
Freshly Picked Moccs: Dash may or may not have 10 pairs already but we are definitely adding to his collection for Christmas. Freshly Picked just had their annual Black Tuesday sale and I am excited to get some great deals from some of our other favorite mock shops like Sweet n’ Swag and Bare Soles Moccasins.
Novelty Tees: I love shopping small and have found some awesome shops like Wild World Clothing, Trilogy Design Co, and Slyfox Threads to outfit Dash. I have already picked up these two new tees and look forward to scooping up a few more during the holiday sales.
OMG Bag: I have mentioned this beauty before, but it is the absolute best bag for work/travel. I have the army green one, but I have been lusting after this classic black one.
The Mindy Project Pencil Set: These are sold out, but I am obsessed with this show and these beautiful pencils that feature some of Mindy’s best quotes. “A best friend isn’t a person. It’s a tier,” “Life, liberty & chicken wings,” and “love me in a way I can show on Instagram” are a few of my favorites! I will be stalking this store until they are restocked!
Quilted Boots: I have had the same pair of Sorel boots for the last 3 winters. They are still in excellent shape but they could use some new friends in the closet.
RH Baby and Child Robes and Slippers: These are just adorable! I can’t wait to wrap Dash up in the charcoal one.
May Designs Stationery: I picked up personalized stationary for my sister in laws this year. Such a fun gift to give and receive!
Land of Nod Teepee: I can’t wait to get Dash his own little hide away!
Vintage Honey Shop Necklaces: This is a great gift for new moms. They are also great for baby showers and Mother’s Day.
Apple Watch: I have been eyeing this since it came out and decided this beautiful rose gold one will go great with my new phone!
XX XX Infant/Toddler Scarf: Mama Sew Happy has the coolest scarfs for stylish tots. This is the perfect accessory for Dash’s holiday looks.
Yeti Tee: Yetis are the new reindeer this holiday season 🙂
Zara Must Haves: By now you probably know about my love affair with Zara Kids. I suspect a few of these items will end up under the tree.
Happy Shopping Everyone!!
