It's that special time of year again! Gift shopping is one of my all-time favorite things to do, and this year has been no exception. It's just so much fun finding the perfect gift for the perfect person. I've compiled a few things I'm currently favoring for that special gal in your life - be it your mom, sister or best friend - I know there is something here that she would LOVE.

Because - PRESENTS!
Okay friends, I want you to take a good long look at this gorgeous watercolor calendar, a collaboration of genius from Papermoss and Nantucket v. Hamptons. When trimmed, each month's artwork becomes a lovely post card. I love the cheeky, summery New England charm of each month's art. This could not make a sweeter hostess gift or Christmas gift (hint hint, Stevie), so make sure to snatch one up before they are gone! P.S. - you can also have the added benefit of bragging about your "small business shopping", which is not only all the rage, it's really how you find the most unique gifts.

Printed on luxe 130lb paper with an eggshell finish, each 5x6.5” month features a one-of-a-kind watercolor that when trimmed turns into a 3.5x5" postcard. Mini magnet included to display each month.

March. Sleepy Baby. Giveaways.

March. Sleepy Baby. Giveaways.
I just had to share these photos. I know they're a touch blurred, but gosh, it's so much fun taking an obscene amount of photos of my child. He was so tired. It was so funny.

HEADS UP: I have a slew of fun baby posts coming at you during the month of March. You could pretty much just call it baby month. Don't worry, those of you who aren't baby people. April will come. But March is for babies and I am suuuuuuper excited to share all kinds of fun content - reviews, baby registry picks, and GIVEAWAYS. Guys, I've got a mad amount of gifts for you. I am partnering with several different brands this month to bring you some really amazing products. Make sure you keep checking back here, and I will also be posting info on my instagram and twitter. Everything kicks off on Monday!

Are you excited? I AM SO EXCITED. Monday, people. It's all going down. Enjoy your weekend, folks! Woohoo!

For the Laughing Littles.

I am ridiculously blessed with nieces and nephews aplenty. They're so much fun to shop for at Christmas time! I love seeing their reactions as they awkwardly tear open the wrapping paper and discover the colorful new addition to their toy family. Their faces cannot tell a lie - they either love a gift or are immediately bored with it. Makes my heart laugh. I do my best to gift books and puzzles, because for some reason I want to be that aunt. This year I came across so many sweet gifts that I couldn't not share some of them. I hope this helps as you hunt for some last-minute kiddo presents. Kids have the magical power of containing MUCH of the Christmas spirit without even realizing it - we should all honor that joy on Christmas morning!

For the Littles (and their sparkling Christmas morning faces),

Holiday Gift Guide: For Her

Thanksgiving is over, but the holidays are in full swing! That means we are legally allowed to listen to Christmas music and shop for our favorite people (as if I needed the excuse.) The big holiday question: What makes a really great gift? I think it’s something you would never buy for yourself. Something just a touch extravagant. Something unnecessary; a “just because” item. Well, here is the opportunity to celebrate the most wonderful chickadee in your life, whether it be your sister, mother or best friend. These fun treats are sparkling with holiday cheer, thoughtfulness and straight up fun. If you’re stumped on what to give, look no further! Presents are just… the best.

1. Sephora Perfume Sampler - $50

I know that Sephora never fails, but I am ridiculously impressed with this gift idea, a 12-piece perfume sampler with a voucher for a full-size of your choice. Not only does this lovely little kit contain mini perfumes from a range of big-name designers, but once your dear friend your dear friend can bring in a voucher (included) to any Sephora store for a full-size version of her favorite! I have the smaller version of this kit and I absolutely love it. The perfume lasts a long time and I love having so many choices to switch between. Does Sephora get women or what?

2. Vonny Casserole Carrier - $48

This adorable carrier is for the true bearer of warm holiday treats. This is a necessary accessory for the lady who likes to cook and likes to share her cooking even more. This case is made to fit a standard 9X13 dish (or smaller) and is available in a variety of colors. What a delight. I want one!

3. Birchbox Gift Subscription - $30

Looking for the perfect gift for that lady who is always on the cutting edge of trends? That’s always hard for me. How can you surprise the ultimate fashionista in your life? Well, Birchbox has made it a lot easier. This 3-month gift subscription contains a variety of full-size and sample-size beauty products and arrives in a perfectly packaged present each month. However, there is a waitlist for this subscription, so hurry and sign up!

4. Baublebar + Essie Snap Happy Set - $50

For the lady who loves to showcase her hands Baublebar has teamed up with Essie to create custom nail polish-jewelry Snap Happy Gift Set. Choose a shade from Essie’s winter collection and two complimentary bracelets for decked-out hands and a surefire gift.

5. One Canoe Two Letterpress Calendar - $26

This 2013 calendar by One Canoe Two adds a special twist to a holiday gift staple. A letterpress calendar is the perfect way to add some whimsy to the year, plus, whomever you give this to will think of you with each passing month! Bonus: This calendar comes complete with a wooden stand, so at the end of the year you can use it to prop up a picture or personal photos. Or a brand new calendar. Love it.

6. Anthropologie Marguerite Headband - $32

This headband is the ultimate girly indulgence. A glitzy headband is the perfect ingredient to amp up any outfit (plus, it decorates your head!) My little sis is a sucker for girly headgear, so maybe yours will be too. Plus, it’s an Anthropologie gift, so how could you go wrong?

Happy Shopping!
