Bryan and I sat down last night to figure out our Christmas lists. I had plans to put everything in a spreadsheet and make it nice and organized but on Friday I had my eyes dilated and I didn’t want to look at another computer ever again. And so, we made a list and checked it twice to ensure we didn’t leave anyone out. This year’s theme is “Meaningful,” at least, that’s what I tried to go for. We are so very lucky to have friends and family who have been there to help us move, assemble furniture, hang lights, and of course, financially–and there were friends who stopped by with flowers, food, and housewarming gifts and so many other things we really appreciate.
We’re keeping the Christmas list relatively short and sweet this year, and I want to focus on gift giving that is thoughtful. I hope I am achieving that this year (please note: there are no spoilers here, with the exception of gift #1 which has already been delivered!).
For the foodie and/or New Yorker who has moved out of state: (PS: This is NOT an affiliate link; I worked with them on a campaign this year and LOVED what they do, and so did our influencers so they get an honorable mention!). New Yorker Bagels offers FREE overnight shipping on all of their products because they are obsessed with fresh. With flavors like Jalapeno Red Pepper, Kalamata Olive, French Toast, and more, you can send a box of fresh bagels or a subscription to a bagel-obsessed friend (or a brother and his GF in FL like I did).
For your bestie: Matching shirts! If you are planning a girls trip, a bachelorette party, or you just love embarrassing your friend in public like I do, this would make a great gift. Also, how lame do we look? Click for your own matching bff and couple clothes
For the avid reader: Y’all. This book was maybe one of the best I read in 2018. I had a lot of late nights and nightlight moments turning pages and not wanting to reach the end, because it was THAT GOOD. Click here to purchase The Woman In The Window!
For your significant other: This one falls under the meaningful category, and putting this together is so much fun! I actually wrote a full post about it here. A LoveBook is a book you create to say I Love You, to thank your partner, just because, and even to propose!
For your fashion-forward friend/family member: Bryan gifted me a Gunas handbag last year, and it gets SO many compliments every time I take it out for a spin. It is just GORGEOUS—a beautiful baby blue color and the perfect size for a date night. See pic below—my favorite feature? !00% vegan!
And there you have it—what would you add to the list?!
