FEWER, BETTER GIFT GUIDE

cuyanaholiday-3093

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.

The beginning of December means only one thing; holiday parties. I never want to show up empty handed so I rounded up a few of my favorite hostess gifts just in time for the celebration to begin. I love putting together a little package, whether it be a bottle of wine and a cute opener tied to the top, or a candle with a match box; these small gifts will be a huge hit!

GIFT GUIDE NO. 3: FOR YOUR GUY

Gift Guide For Him

We all know the men in our life can be tricky to shop for, so today I enlisted my husband to created his ultimate wish list. What you probably do not know is that he loves to online shop (but never in the store). He is the best at doing his research and finding new-to-me brands.  It is always fun when I see a brand he has been wearing for years on my favorite retailer’s sites.  One of these brands is Mizzen and Main.  These dress shirts are machine washable and made of dry fit material.  So cool, right?
