For Her Gift Guide

When it comes to suggesting gifts for myself and others I don’t really like to go overboard with the cost. Sure there are a few “bigger tickets” on my Christmas list this year, but smaller gifts are just as, if not more so, thoughtful to me and go a long way. That’s why I suggest this gorgeous Silent Night Christmas Print by Bloom Handletteringa beautiful modern jewelry holder from Urban Outfitters; my favorite floral desk series by Rifle Paper Co.: the Botanical notebook collection and Weekly Agenda List; a handmade waterproof messenger bag from Ika Bags in Paris; and a cozy handmade cowl scarf; lush fuax fur slippers from Restoration Hardware; and this “Don’t get your tinsel in a tangle” shirt by Sass and Cloth!


Is it hard for anyone else to shop for their husband?! My husband’s big ticket item list is generally longer and more technologically sophisticated than mine. So I generally go for the small, stocking stuffer items that he’ll enjoy. Have you ever checked out Restoration Hardware stocking stuffer gift section? It’s amazing! They have so many fun, practical, and classy items for anyone really. I’ll just say these are “for him,” for the sake of flow in this post. My husband has travels come up here and there, and what feels better than being classy when you’re away from home?

Leather Key Cover / Travel Sonic Toothbrush Case / Travel Phone Mount / Vintage Electronic Football Game

For the Pup gift guide

Do you get something for your favorite furball at Christmas? I honestly do think it’s the cutest thing to see them get into tearing open wrapping paper! If you love your puppy, you should get him the good stuff. For chewing, have you tried an antler? My Australian Shepherd LOOOOVES them. They take time to chew, don’t make a mess, and won’t upset their stomachs. For a tug toy the Wubba is king! You can even get them in ridiculous super sizes. Time for a new shiny collar? Cycle Dog Collars are made from recycled bicycle rubber and have a bottle opener on them. Yes. Necessary. And they DONT STINK. Perfect for the wet winter season. We LOVE ours. To go with it, get a soft leather leash to change your walking experience. Nylon leashes are cute, but they hurt like a ‘b’, these leashes are amazing. Keep your dog smelling good over the holidays and beyond with my favorite long lasting Coconut Verbana Deodorizing Cologn for dogs! Look no further for your favorite frisbee- this Nylabone Frisbee flies high and evenly even for the beginner thrower. If your dog has a sensitive stomach, but you still want to treat him try a grain, poultry, and meat free treat like these Salmon Sweet Potato Biscuits.

Now for the best part! As a gift for you, I’m giving away 4 spectacular gifts from my “For Her” gift guide! This “Don’t get your tinsel in a tangle” shirt by Sass + Cloth. The Rifle Paper Co. Botanical’s Notebook Collection. A download of Bloom Handlettering’s Silent Night print. And this Rifle Paper Co. weekly agenda desk pad! How fun is that?!
