The 12 Days of Gift Guides: For the Fashionista

I’d like to meet the person who is able to get their Christmas shopping done without buying a little somethin’-somethin’ for themselves. They are true heros this season and deserve all of their magical Christmas wishes to come true.

For the rest of us, there is the list below.


1. Black Pumps  |  2. Tweed Draped Jacket  |  3. Nickle & Suede Earrings  |  4. Exposed Rock Necklace

5. Aztec Cuff  |  6. Shooting Stars Necklace  |  7. Red Wrap Dress  |  8. Aztec Leggings

9. Orange Clutch  |  10. Pink Infinity Scarf

Although it may be last minute for Christmas, these items can last you far into the winter. There is always a close friend that we don’t see until a few weeks after Christmas so these are great go-tos.

The Nickle & Suede earrings are perfect for moms or women who are on the run a lot. They are light weight and come in all these great leather patterns. And let’s be honest… you can never have too many scarves or bags.

Happy shopping :)


The 12 Days of Gift Guides: For the Decorator

Calling all decorators and HGTV enthusiasts out there! This one is for you!


1. Picture Frame  |  2. Boxwood Wreath  |  3. IKEA Rug  |  4. Sunflower Painting  |  5. Starry Night Wall Decor

6. Retro Side Table  |  7. Frank Lloyd Wright Clock  |  8. Mercury Glass Lamp  |  9. Floral Throw Pillow

10. Plaid Throw

That pillow, though. Get on my couch.

That’s all folks. This girl has some wrapping to do ;) Let me know what you think and happy shopping!

The 12 Days of Gift Guides: For the Hipster

We all know one. Or we are one. Today… we bequeath the Gift Guide to the hipster. For the items they can say they knew were cool before everybody else.

But I’m not gonna lie… some of these are pretty cool. When I got my new job I seriously considered getting the computer mug. But then I realized I’m too #basic for that. Get me a beanie and that shark Christmas sweater and maybe I’ll reconsider…


1. DIY Viddy Camera  |  2. Cold Bruer Drip Coffee Maker  |  3. Botanicals Coloring Book  |  4. Hipster Owl Print

5. 1920’s Phone  |  6. Computer Mug  |  7. Selfie Album  |  8. Wall Scrabble  |  9. Record Player

10. Shark Ugly Christmas Sweater

Yes, that is actually a selfie album. For the times you just want to look at yourself and a mirror is just not good enough… But don’t just take them with a normal camera. That’s so last year. MAKE your own carmera from cardboard with the Viddy Camera! I’m not going to lie.., that’s pretty cool that technology has come so far that it’s an option to make a camera from cardboard.

Check out last year’s Gift Guide for the Hipster!

But that coloring book? I’ve been looking for a coloring book that had some cool shapes or pictures in it and this one just may be it! Snag me some Crayolas and I’m in for a good night.

With a glass of wine of course.

In my computer mug.    Of course.

The 12 Days of Gift Guides: For the Movie Buff

As a kid, you could often find my family and I conversing almost entirley in movie quotes.  Little did I know that this was not the norm when I eventually grew up and no one knew the lines I was yelling from “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World”. Should I be embarrased by this social faux pas? Not at all. In fact, I’m rather proud of it.

And I’m hoping… if you are anything like me, you have at least one or two people on your holiday list that are the same way as me. Maybe not in movie quotes, but perhaps they are a film student in the making or maybe they love quirky collectibles OR maybe they are the professional-movie-watchers-and-popcorn-eaters-on-a-Friday- night kinda person. Aren’t we all that person sometimes?

Well these items are for those people. The fellow movie lovers out there. Hopefully you’ll find something new and a little out there. I mean, who doesn’t want to sport “Fargo” written across their chest all season?!


1. Awesome Mix Vol 1 from Gaurdians of the Galaxy  |  2. Fargo Sweater  |  3. The Big Lebowski TIME Mirror

4. Muppets Alphabet Print  |  5. “What I Love About Movies” Book  |  6. The Science of Interstellar

7. TCM Classic Movie Trivia  |  8. Science Fiction Star Chart  |  9. Popcorn Maker

10. Movie Slate Board

 All these items make me want to build a big theatre in my home someday. Ahhh dreams. Speaking of dreams, I had a dream about Interstellar the other night. I haven’t seen it but I read an article that the science in it was pretty spot on. So even if you’re a science nut, number 6 just may be for YOU!

And I think I need to become more well versed in my old movies because that TCM trivia game would be so fun. But I should probably finish the ever growing list of old movies I need to watch. And that’s where the popcorn will come in handy;)

Check out last year’s Gift Guide for the Movie Buff! There are still a lot of items I love on that one.

I hope you or someone on your list could go for one or more of these items. But even if they don’t…

The 12 Days of Gift Guides: For the Jokester

I have quite the fan of the gag gifts. Although, I would prefer to GIVE them versus getting them. But I’m sure you can find a few people on your list who like to take advantage of their funny bone. Check out these items! I haven’t decided if I’d rather the inflattable unicorn horn or the Cat-Splosion Sweater more. But think of how perfect they’d be together.

I don’t know if I can handle that much funny in one outfit…


1. Griswold Moose Mugs  |  2. Gravy Flavored Candy Canes  |  3. Catsplosion Sweatshirt  |  4. Oversized Wine Glass

5. Burrito Scented Candle  |  6. Mitten Flask  |  7. Crap To Do List  |  8. Inflatable Unicorn Horn

9. Napsack Decoy Box  |  10. “Happy Birthday Jesus” Sweater

What better way to get ready for the season than donning your new “Happy Birthday Jesus” sweater while smelling the beautiful aroma of a burrito scented candle. And since we love all things savory, you certainly can’t go wrong with a gravy flavored candy cane.

Hope you either make someone laugh with these gifts… or at least don’t offend them too terribly…

The 12 Days of Gift Guides: For the Outdoorsmen

I’ve always loved a good hike or a trip to the upper peninsula to venture out into the wilderness. Unfortunately it doesn’t come often enough. But for those of you who are able to get off the beaten trail a little more often, then this is for you.

Here are some great items to check off your list that will be ideal for any outdorosman or outdoorslady. For me, I think I’m loving the LifeStraw. It purifies lake water, pond water, etc. AS you drink form it. No need to wait 30 minutes to purify your water anymore!



1. Hammock  |  2. Star Map  |  3. Hiking Backpack  |  4. Yosemite T-Shirt  |  5. Polarized Sunglasses

6. Swiss Knife  |  7. LifeStraw  |  8. “Home is Where You Park It” Book

9. FitBit  |  10. BioLite KettlePot

If you are wondering if that little BioLite KettlePot is charging a phone, well then the answer is yes. It cooks your food, warms your drink AND charges. I gotta say, camping gear has come pretty far from your everyday Coleman stove.

And I think it should be a requirement that all outdoorsy people should own a Star Map. I never thought of it before, but now I think it’s a great gift! Instead of naming a star after someone, just get them the whole bunch!

What do you think? Would you go camping with that amazing hammock? And you’re probably wondering why I put another workout band on my list. But I’m starting to think I should add it to my Christmas Wishlist.

It’s the weekend so enjoy the outdoors, friends! No matter how cold it may be out there ;) I won’t be posting tomorrow, as it’s Sunday and I am going to relax. But I’ll see back here on Tuesday for the next Gift Guide!
