We are just fifteen days away from Christmas eve and my little holiday break could not come at a more oportune time. I am ready to unplug and recharge to start the new year feeling inspired.  We will be traveling to Scottsdale to celebrate the holidays with my family and I am feeling extra giddy because my grandparents are coming this year. We have planned a weekend full of  family traditions, like going to Zoo Lights and celebrating my mom and Patrick’s birthdays the day after Christmas. They happen to be one day apart just days before Christmas.

Since I have a few extra gifts to find this year, I decided on gifting really special presents this year. When it comes to finding the “perfect” gift for someone I think something personal makes it extra special .  I have always been a huge fan of the brand, Cuyana (see here and here) and their mission for fewer, better things. This year I am taking on their mantra when it comes to gifting my loved ones.

While I can’t spill the beans on what I got my family this year, be sure to check out Cuyana’s gift guide for a few ideas.  They have a great selection (and price range) of quality leather goods and super soft cashmere sweaters.  A few of my favorite things from the collection are my classic leather tote in black and these travel cases. They are seriously the best travel companions and the little gold monograms don’t hurt either ;).
