Some of my favorite things

Okay, so this is the week to start your shopping. I thought I would help get you started by giving you some ideas. These are a few of the things that I like, they are small, simple gifts that are great for stocking stuffers, teachers gifts, hostess gifts or great to get for your self for the season.

CrateandBarrel.com Owl ornament $7.99

Landsend.com Chunky cable knit stocking $24

Westelm.com Alphabet letter mug $4

Westelm.com Ceramic owls $9-$16

Anthropologie Rosebud strawberry lip balm $8
Anthropologie Royal apothic roll-on fragrance $16

Anthropologie Illume votive $10

Etsy Artofsilver charm necklace $46

Sweet gifts for the Kiddies

New York Stamp set $9-$16
Puppets hand crafted from recycled sweaters $40

owl backpack $42
crochet animals - suzette the cat $46

And last but not least, this is one of my favorite gifts to give. This is a great DIY project.

These are paperwhites. A pretty holiday flower that you grow yourself. Just go to your local garden shop or home improvement store that has a garden. You plant the bulbs in anything and they are so easy to grow with a little bit of watering. I grow them in terra cotta pots and tie with rafia with a little tag and give as gifts.

I hope that at least one of these items will help you with your Christmas/Holiday shopping this year.
Have a great day.



  1. Thank you for sharing Leslie! I love the ideas. How long does it take for the paperwhites to begin growing/blooming? Happy Thanksgiving too!

  2. Leslie - Thanks for the tips. I just ordered two custom necklaces from Art of Silver for Steve's Mom and for me. I love them with the chunky silver and the kids names on them. Never would have found them if it wasn't for your Blog. Thanks for the tips. Keep them coming!!
