Perfect Prezzies: 39 Days Until Christmas!

Wait, what??  39 days until Christmas??  How did that happen?? 

Welcome to the third installment of Perfect Prezzies (click here for the first edition or second edition).  I hope you find some affordable and fabulous inspiration for everyone on your holiday list!

For the Entertainer

I have given these chic and eclectic cocktail/appetizer/dessert plates as gifts in previous years, and received great feedback.  You can never have too many beautiful accent plates!  Aren’t they gorgeous?

For Him

As I have said before, I think that men are the toughest to buy for!  I love this vintage, retro, black, steel-cased clock.  It has a great masculine look that would complement any nightstand, desk or bureau.  The description says: “It even has an old-fashioned, rise-and-shine alarm bell.”  Charming!

Speaking of retro, I really like this leather, vintage-looking dopp kit.  Men are always in need of an updated travel case and this one is masculine, sturdy, durable and affordable.

For the Gardener

I love to give little pint-sized bonsais!  Bonsais are interesting, pretty low maintenance and they last forever.  Plus, this Gardenia Bonsai flowers a few times a year and who wouldn’t want their house perfumed with the scent of fresh gardenias?  (Also, Red Envelope is very customer-service oriented — I sent a few jade bonsais to family members a few years ago, and they all came in great condition, except for my grandmother’s which arrived partially frozen.  RE returned it for a fresh plant the next day.)

For Her

I just added this sparkler to MY LIST!  Isn’t it so delicate and feminine?  And only $42?  Yes please.  It would look great tied close to your neck with a little black dress, or tied long and worn over a turtleneck or high-necked dress.

For Kids

In our family, my sister and I got new matching nightgowns each Christmas Eve.  I still love the idea of receiving new, warm, wintery (and maybe kinda matching!) night clothes for Christmas.  Check out these options:

Perfect Prezzies: 58 Days

Welcome to the 2nd installment of Perfect Prezzies.  58 days until Christmas!  I hope these affordable ideas delight and inspire….

FOR MOTHERS

I love this darling necklace from Cambria Cove!  The larger monogrammed charm depicts the mother’s first initial and the “baby” silver charm represents the child’s first initial.  The curly cursive font used on the charms is adorable!  ($80 for chain, $60 for large charm, $35 for baby charm).

FOR HIM

Men are such a challenge!  For cold-weather-climate guys, what do you think about this cool collapsible shovel ($29.50) to get themselves and others out of snowy situations?

FOR MOMS-TO-BE

My sister introduced me to the Gownie ($49.99) — the cute and chic hospital gown made from 100% cotton!  No more exposing yourself to everyone in the hospital with those horrible “tie up the back” neon green hospital rags.  Why didn’t we think of this long before now?!

FOR NEWLYWEDS, COLLEAGUES, TEACHERS OR NEIGHBORS

I just love these Garden of Eden Salt and Pepper Shakers from Jonathan Adler.  They are little cheeky works of art for your ktichen table!

FOR BABY

This blanket ($26) found at Pokka Dots was one of my favorite baby gifts when my daughter was born.  It is so FUZZY and SOFT and makes a perfect stroller blanket.
