{mini} Perfect Prezzies: 26 Days To Go!

Well, today, I am battling my way through the Magic Kingdon at Disney World with an over-exuberant 3 year old and a reluctant husband.  In my absence, I thought I would post mini Perfect Prezzie posts.  If you weren’t a reader at this time last year, Perfect Prezzies are posts on holiday gift suggestions!  Can you believe there is only 26 days until Christmas??  Aaaack.

Without further ado, this gorgeous angel wing platter would be a perfect prezzie for any gal or couple on your list.  It would be a great gift for someone at work or serve as a very generous hostess gift.

This would work beautifully on a console in the front hall or perched on a dresser to neatly collect change, jewelry and sunglasses.  Stay tuned this week for some more Perfect Prezzies!

Hooooo Doesn’t Love Owls?

I can’t get enough of the gorgeous owl’s round little figure, inquisitive eyes, serene disposition and infinite wisdom. 

How adorable is this tea set from Viva Terra?

I love both colorways of this cute owl lantern from Urban Outfitters too.

A quick search on Etsy will uncover some gorgeous wall art and home decor items featuring owls, like this little gem:

This owl lamp from West Elm reminds me of Jonathan Adler, but it’s only $99!

I wouldn’t mind having this little guy underfoot!  (Owl Door Stop from Anthropologie)

Truth be told, this wallet ($9.99!!) was the inspiration for this post.  I couldn’t leave Target without him yesterday!

This trio from At West End would look great on a tablescape or mantel!

And finally, I just love these fluffy feathered guys from Z Gallerie.  I think they would look amazing sitting atop a bookcase or gazing from a console table in the front hall. 

Buy This, Not That — Headboards and Beds!

So, I have been looking around for a new headboard for my daughter’s big girl room and am WOWED with Target’s selection of beds and headboards, and really impressed by the favorable customer reviews too, that I was inspired to do another bed/headboard edition of Buy This, Not That!  Enjoy and happy weekend!

Perfect Prezzies: 17 Days!

Sorry for the unexpected blogging silence!  Work and life has me hopping this month.  Not to mention that there are still pumpkins on my front porch….

Speaking of, YIKES — 17 days until Christmas!  Here are some  unique, fun and affordable stocking stuffer inspiration for all the great peeps on your list:

For Her

What gal doesn’t like fun, dotty accessories?  I love this belt from Boden (on sale for $32)!  It would look great with brown, black or any color!

And this dot scarf from Garnet Hill ($58) adds some fun to bundling up.

And speaking of accessories, this triple strand headband from Anthro ($32) would make a great stocking stuffer for any girl on Santa’s list:

I would love to hang these fabulous icicle quartz ornaments from Viva Terra ($44 for a set of 12) on little pine trees on either side of the front door.  Or even from a chandelier.  Gorgeous!

For the traveler on your list!  You would never overlook your bag at baggage claim or forget your passport with these awesome faux croc Ivana passport cover and luggage tag from Z Gallerie ($16.95).

 

For Kids

I just bought this Fair Isle Hat from Gymboree for baby spark! and we both love it (on sale for $11)!

For the chic-est baby on the block!  Check out these zebra booties from Layla Grace ($10).  So.Darn.Cute!

Wouldn’t this stag toothbrush holder ($8) from Urban Outfitters be so cute in a kids bathroom?  Gotta love useful antlers.

 

For Him

Can’t have too many of these.  And for $4!  Check out these nice fleece gloves from Old Navy:

This is totally random, but is your man as obssessed with shredding as much as mine is?  I thought of him immediately when I saw these shredding scissors ($8.99) from the Container Store.  No need for that bulky shredder by the trash can anymore! 

Check out this great off-season deal: 4 piece barbeque tool kit for $7.48 from World Market.

And of course, the good ole standby in our house for all stockings: Moose Munch by Harry and David.  Yummmmm.

I hope these ideas have inspired you!  Off to start decorating — merry merry!

Buy This, Not That – Lighting!

Happy Friday!  You can have chic, modern and fabulous lighting for less.  Enjoy!
