My final gift guide of this season! This one is a hodgepodge of great ideas I’ve saved over the past couple of weeks that work for nearly anyone on your list, including that really hard to buy for person!

Ultimate Toys For Men Book – I mean, do you have to be a man to like this book because I’m intrigued and might get it for Josh just to see what all is inside!

Famous Women Game – The perfect game for your next girls night out, or in!

Blue Drawstring Pullover – Is it tunic? A sweatshirt? Or the best pullover of all time? I think the answer is yes to all of these questions. It comes in black, too.

3 Day Emergency Bag – Prepare for the unexpected with a thoughtfully planned kit of survival supplies! Check out what’s all inside.

Navy Monogrammed Garment Bag – I could really use this. It’s the perfect non-wrinkling transporter for weekend getaways!

42 Pressed Calendar – New year new calendar and this one is beautiful designed and unlike any other! Each page is hand ripped and like art for your walls.

Multi Tool Pen – The pen with all the tricks up it’s sleeve!

Sugar Balm Set – One of the most popular tinted lip balms ever, and this set includes 6 shades – an amazing gift in itself, or break the set up for friends, or keep for yourself :)

Blue/Green Yeti Cooler – Well this is the prettiest Yeti I’ve seen. And did you know that Yeti makes an insulated lunch bag, too??

Rolling Picnic Cooler – With a space for everything and it’s pretty darn cute, too.

Watch Case – Anyone else have a husband who collects watches? I have one of these for sunglasses (this one) and I just have to say it just feels special and organized.

Leather Laptop Sleeve – I love this sleek looking laptop and iPad sleeve, and it comes in a some really beautiful colors.

I know I’m cutting it close on this Gift Guides with Christmas Eve just a week away! But if you’re anything like me you’ve only just begun your shopping and are scrambling for ideas, or maybe you’re just looking for that one extra present for under the tree. Either way, here are a dozen more gift ideas for kids that are sure to please – many are tried and true favorites of ours!

Best Gift Ideas For Kids:

Kindle For Kids – This is high on Lilly’s list this year. The Kindle reader for kids comes pre-loaded with tons of classic favorite books and offers kid friendly book cover options!

Stripe Plush Robe – Is there anything cuter than a freshly bathed child wrapped up in a cushy robe? Nope. There isn’t. The end.

Jellyfish Lamp – So both of my kids have these and are OBSESSED. Like, every single night we have to turn them on (they turn off automatically after a little while). They really look like jellyfish floating around, it’s pretty incredible. They’ve had them for a year and are still so into them!

Stripe Bean Bag – Every kid could use a bean bag that they can move around! My kids love their’s and use them when friends come over, to play Nintendo, and to just lounge around the house. If you’d prefer a more classic look, check out these monogrammable bean bags!

DIY Necklace Kit – I love that these necklaces are back in style, they’re super cute, and I love that it’s a craft activity as well.

Illustory Book Kit – Make your own book – how fun would this be?! This kit give instructions and helpful hints to help your kid write, illustrate, and “publish” their first hard cover, 20 page, professionally printed book!

Faux Fur Coat – DVF x Rockets of Awesome just made the cutest fur coat!! Perfect for a little fashionista.

The Mouse Mansion Book – One our family’s all time most favorite children’s books. Both Lilly and Fletcher loved this book equally. It’s so special that I can’t even describe it. Seriously. A must for every child.

Nailmatic Polish – Safe nail polish for kids that won’t stain AND it washes off with soap and water! Love this brand!

Monster Magnets – Mix n Match magnetic parts to create funny monsters on different backgrounds. These would be great to bring along to restaurants, for travel, or just on a rainy day. They remind me of the paper dolls that I used to love as a kid, but they’ll last longer.

Marysia Swimsuit – I love Marysia’s rash guards for kids, they’re well designed and protective from the sun, which makes my day a whole lot easier! So it’s basically a present for the parents. You’re welcome.

Harry Potter Book – A Scratch N Sniff book from the Honeydukes Candy store from Harry Potter!! I mean, how fun is that!! Perfect for any Harry Potter lover.

Yesterday I started all of my holiday shopping and found myself on Chappy’s blanket website because they just make the best gifts for basically everyone. I discovered ChappyWrap this past summer when I was invited to an incredible lunch hosted by my friend Kristin at the founder’s home on Kiawah.

I can’t believe I haven’t shared these photos here yet! It was such a pretty and fun day with blogger friends. I hadn’t heard of ChappyWrap yet so it was great to get to know the mother and daughter behind the brand and see all of the designs in person.

And drink wine poolside and eat lobster rolls. I mean if only every day was like that.

Their kids collection of mini blankets is seriously adorable. I love the little blue fish print!!

If you still have someone on your list to buy for and are struggling, then here are some great ideas! They’re practically the only blankets we curl up with on the couch these days.

Good morning! I hope you all had a great weekend – our’s was nice! We celebrated Josh’s birthday, had a family Christmas with Josh’s side, and caught the Christmas parade last night. The weekend flew by and yesterday was so busy that I sort of feel like I didn’t get much of a break, but I guess that’s just December for you. Must push forward. Today’s post is dedicated to gift ideas for the ladies on your list (or for your own wishlist)! I have my eye on a few of these items, like that amazing faux fiddle leaf fig tree and the raffia wrapped earrings!

12 Gifts For Her:

Fiddle Leaf Fig – It’s faux but you wouldn’t know! (See what I did there?) This is on my wish list! It comes in two sizes and won’t die!!

Travel Cosmetic Bag – A fresh cosmetic bag is always fun isn’t it? This one is so cute.

Birthstone Ring – A splurge but these birthstone rings are so special and stack beautifully.

Leopard Card Case – I rarely ever even use my large wallet anymore, these card cases are just easier for me because I regularly switch out my bags depending on my outfit.

Gingham Napkin Set – My friend Meredith just launched the most adorable linens collection called Butter Radish! A new set of napkins makes for a great gift, or for yourself for your holiday table!

Polka Dot Pajamas – LOVE the green piping on these pj’s! These are the cutest.

Gem Earring Set – I love a good earring set, all three pairs are so fun and I couldn’t pick a favorite anyway!

Cozy Plaid Blanket – Not inventing the wheel here, but there is good reason why a beautiful throw makes for a great gift!

Yeti Coffee Mug – These mugs are ALWAYS a good idea. They make great stocking stuffers as well.

Raffia Gumdrop Earring – I mean these are really cute don’t you think?! ON my personal wish list!

Floral Duffle Bag – For the girly girl. The most beautiful duffle bag!

Fur Lined Mules – Okay these leopard faux fur lined mules must feel like Heaven. So cute with jeans and a sweater!

This reversible travel wrap makes a great gift, too! It’s super soft and comes in a lot of different color combinations. I’m wearing it with this cream mock neck sweater, these pintuck cream pants, and these pink velvet loafers. Hope your week is off to a great start!

Today’s post feels extra special to me because it’s all about nostalgia. Do you remember the first brand that you collected that you were excited about? Mine was Vera Bradley. My friends and I collected the many different patterns and colors of Vera Bradley duffel bags, totes, and cosmetic bags. When one friend would get the new pattern, we all needed it. And trust me, we knew about all of the new bags because we lived just a couple of hours south of the Vera Bradley headquarters in Indiana. We were in the know. Their soft and feminine designs were fun for everyday use, sleepovers, and road trips. I could cram SO much into my duffel bag. And bonus, mom could just throw the bag in the washing machine when it needed a refresh!

Well, for Lilly’s birthday this year I gave her her very first Vera Bradley piece. It felt really special to tell her how I started collecting my pieces as a young girl. Of course, she loved it. It’s hard not to appreciate Vera Bradley’s whimsical patterns and bright, bold colors. Lilly is now the proud owner of the Lighten Up Journey Backpack in the Indiana Blossoms print (because obviously). And it’s the Dashing Deal of the Day today on Vera Bradley’s site, so you can buy them for $100 each (reg. $175) with the code LIGHTENUPLOVE!

This Lighten Up Journey Backpack has the most storage of any backpack I’ve seen. From a designated spot for special papers to a ventilated pouch to stash shoes and worn clothes, it’s the perfect kid and adult friendly backpack for school, work, or travel. It has a padded laptop compartment, a hard case top pocket for sunglasses, and a trolley sleeve that accommodates luggage handles. It has even more storage tricks you can read about here.

For as roomy and durable as this Lighten Up Journey Backpack is, it’s actually surprisingly light weight! It’s also water-resistant.

Vera Bradley is an awesome source for gifts this holiday season! Here are a few more great gift ideas from their site!

I have a feeling the Hanging Travel Organizer and the Travel Duffel will be next on Lilly’s wish list. Check out the Lighten Up Journey Backpack today while it’s the Dashing Deal of the day and make some progress on your holiday shopping!

I have been SO excited to share today’s post! There is something for everyone here, and thanks to Lacoste’s big Winter Sale happening right now you can knock out some holiday shopping with 30% – 50% off select styles (some exclusions apply) plus free shipping and returns on all orders from 12/3 to 12/25!!

Lacoste is just that classic, fun brand that everyone knows and loves. I’ve been gifting Lacoste pieces to my older brother for years. It’s always well received. And not only is Lacoste’s collection well-made and well thought out, but giving back to the community is high on their list of priorities. They’re just a cool and kind company, which is why 2 Lacoste products are sold every second of every day.

I’ve put together 3 Gift Guides today: One for women, one for men, and one for kids. Let me warn you though, these gift ideas may result in a real “one for me, one for you” trend.

That Sweatshirt Tennis Dress makes me want to take up tennis. Maybe I need it for pickleball games. Wait, this isn’t about me. This is about gifting. That Zippered Tote comes in 12 different colors and is adorable!

The Men’s Polo is the perfect gift for any guy. It comes in 40 colors but I love that pink shade the most. The Half Zip Cotton Sweatshirt makes the perfect gift, too! I love the stand-up collar.

You can select your crocodile from over 40 options (even team and flag patterns), choose your personal polo fit and color, and get up to 4 initials embroidered! Head over here to shop Lacoste’s Big Winter Sale with free shipping and returns! Happy holiday shopping and have a great day, Everyone!
