Lucky Lexy Lu Winner


CONGRATULATIONS to MARY from Richmond, Virginia on winning the Lexy Lu hat giveaway!  As a mom to two little boys, her next decision will be WHO GETS THE HAT?  🙂

A huge thank you to all of the entrants and to Christi at Lexy Lu for the very generous giveaway. 



Lexy Lu Designs has very generously sponsored a GIVEAWAY for spark!  Lexy Lu makes the most adorable kids hats, and as I mentioned in a previous post, one of these would make a fabulous holiday gift for any little one on your list.

I love that Lexy Lu was founded by a Virginia mom looking for fun, functional and fashionable options to keep her kids warm.

Perfect Prezzies: 71 Days

I am starting a new series, Perfect Prezzies, that will run periodically from now until Christmas (71 DAYS AWAY!) to share some fun and affordable holiday gift ideas.  There are some years that I am brimming with inspiration for everyone on my list and other years that I am struggling on Christmas Eve to find ANYTHING for my family, friends, colleagues and neighbors. 

So, I hope this series will give you some motivation to get shopping early so that you can be sipping spiked cider and eating cookies in front of a roaring fire on Christmas Eve, instead of battling traffic and throngs of procrastinators at your local mall!

For Her

I love this delicate and understated bracelet ($95) by Kate Spade.  It is perfect for both work and weekends.  Isn’t she lovely? 


How awesome is this Guess Drop Waist Peacoat ($138) from Nordstrom?  It’s almost an outfit by itself — pair it with black leggings or jeans and head out the door.  I have been waiting for it to go on sale because it would be a perfect present for my 17 year old step-sister.   




I spotted this glam Nate Berkus Throw ($79.99) over at Matters of Style earlier this week and immediately thought that it would make a terrific Christmas present.  I could design a whole room around this beauty!




For Little Girl

A friend gave baby spark! one of these adorable Lexy Lu hats ($20) for Christmas last year and we wore it all winter.  They are soft and sweet and I love the “whale spout” of grosgrain ribbons!  (For Richmonders, these are available at Rattle & Roll too).




For Him

Aren’t men the hardest to buy for?  My husband, dad and brothers-in-law are always the last ones left on my list.  This masculine, black and white, matted and framed photo of a vintage jaguar ($69.95) from Z Gallerie would make a welcome addition to any man’s office or “man cave.” 



For Neighbors or Teacher

I have been eyeing Red Envelope‘s gorgeous oversized candles for a while and think that this Cherry Blossoms Candle ($49.99) would make a beautiful and thoughtful gift.




Acacia offers the most amazing sets of tableware.  These Japanese Botanical Bowls ($59.95) are so simple and elegant and could be used for everything from soup to cereal to serving snacks. 




For the Dog Lover

We are a family of dog lovers and this fun Buddy Pillow ($88) by Serena and Lily would be perfect for my in-laws who have an affinity for labs and golden retrievers.  It also comes in yellow with a white background and orange with a light blue background.


Go get shopping, friends! 

Oh, and time is running out, so please don’t forget to click on over to enter into the Shades of Light GIVEAWAY to celebrate spark!’s 100th post.
