Today I’m sharing the second half of my Holiday Gift Guide – By Category! A couple of weeks ago I shared my Favorite Things Gift Guide for Men and Women, and at the time, I mentioned I’d be back with some specialty gift ideas. I don’t know about all of you, but I haven’t done a lot of shopping yet and I’m definitely still looking for gifts!
Hi friends, today I’m back with more gift giving ideas (last week I shared my Favorite Things Gift Guide HERE)! And as promised, I’m bringing you my Stocking Stuffer Favorites. To me, the stuffing of the stockings is actually even more fun than the “bigger” gifts!
It’s that time of year again; the gift-giving season is officially upon us! To me, it really is the most wonderful time of the year. I know many people dread having to find gifts and they often struggle with getting something appropriate. But I’m here to help! Not only do I love giving gifts, but I find it challenging (and yes, even fun!) to find the perfect gift for someone. Or at least something they don’t want to return 😉
It’s November 1st, so it’s officially Christmas season right?! I know it’s a little early for some, but you’d be surprised how many people are already looking ahead and planning their shopping and decorating for the holiday season. And last year I had so many questions about where I got some of my French Christmas decor, that I thought it would be nice to put it into a post for you this year. Before it all sells out!
For many years, I wanted an antique crystal chandelier in either my dining room and/or entry way. I shopped flea markets and antiques stores, and even Ebay and 1st Dibs, and I kept coming up short. It was hard to find the right size, and of course, the right price! And then, naturally, life would get busy and I’d stop looking. (I never understand people who are such fast decorators! This is definitely not me!) As a result, many years went by with no decent chandelier in either space.
Lately I’ve been really loving mirrors. Which is funny, because, ironically, of all the things I decorate with, mirrors are not usually one of them. I tend to buy art more than I buy mirrors. Not including bathroom mirrors, I have two – two! – decorative mirrors in my whole home! I have a mirror over my living room mantel, and my beloved antique French Trumeau mirror in my entry way which is one of my all-time favorite things I’ve ever purchased. But I’ve been wanting to add a couple more.
