Hello friends and welcome to French Country Fridays! I hope you’re all enjoying the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, but without too much craziness! I’ve had a few friends say on Instagram that they are done with their shopping! What?!! Seriously, I’m only about half way done, but I am so in awe of these people who get it all done so early! And I never wrap gifts early either which is something I definitely need to work on, haha! My husband and I are always crazily wrapping right at the bitter end!
For years I kept bringing out the same Christmas decor, year after year. I never really changed much aside from adding a new ornament here and there. However, now I really relish changing things up a little. It’s amazing how a few new things, an added style, or just a new color can make it all feel so much fresher!
Well, I shared my final tour of the year yesterday – though that doesn’t mean I’m not still looking at Christmas inspiration! I don’t know about you, but I love getting ideas from other designers and bloggers. Not only do I hop around the tours I’m in to get inspired by the other bloggers who are there, but I also can’t stop pinning this time of year!
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!
For a blogger who normally posts roughly twice a week, this season has sure been busy! Hopefully you’re not sick of hearing from me, as I’m sharing another holiday home tour post today. This time I’m joining the 12 Days of Holiday Homes Tour hosted by 11 Magnolia Lane and Evolution of Style, and I’m excited to show you my Soft & Subtle Christmas Front Porch!
