Today we’re teaming up with some of our mostest-bestest-cutest-favoritest boutiques & businesses to share our sweetest, softest, coziest, creative, festive favorites for you to wrap up your shopping and check off everyone on your list! Without further adieu, here are some of OUR favorite things that will be tucked under OUR tree this year or passed out to OUR dearest friends and family!!……
This year, skip the generic Starbucks gift card. She dotes on your child, teaches them, and puts up with their tantrums or trigonometry questions. She no doubt adores your kid, but doesn’t need another hand-made popsicle stick framed photograph of your little darling! Give her something sincerely appreciative of the hours she invests and effort she makes all the live-long-day to nurture and care for your child. Nothing says that better than a personalized market tote! Fill with a cozy afghan. Or holiday magazines. Or baked goods. Or bring her a home-cooked meal in this on the last day of school before Christmas break! These totes will be a functional favorite she’ll cart back and forth to class for years to come.
GIFTS FROM SANTA
Its a tradition at our house…..on Christmas Eve, just as we’re finishing our fancy dinner with Spode china after a beautiful Christmas Eve candlelit service, there is always a jingle of bells at the front door and the kids go racing to see if they can spot Santa fleeing in sleigh. To date, no sighting has ever been made, but that sneaky Santa leaves a bag on the doorstep every year that is the source of much excitement. Christmas pajamas!! This year, Santa’s little helper has picked out precious nightgowns for the little girls. Darling styles in the softest flannel are a winter must-have! These nightgowns come in a variety of styles. Choose from sweet smocking, tiered hems, long or short sleeves. Available colors include aqua, light pink, lavender, red and white. Guaranteed there will be “visions of sugarplums” dancing in their heads as they slumber in these sweet nighties!
Whether you’ve been invited to a cocktail party in the home of a friend or you need to thank your neighbor for watching your kids so you can run errands before Christmas, we’ve got the perfect gift to express your gratitude!! Village Candles!! We recommend keeping a stash of these on hand. There are always moments popping up during the holidays when you need to pull out a gift….and everyone loves candles! You cant go wrong gifting these to the hostess or the neighbor! A few of our favorites include:
Costal Christmas – A superb balance of the seaside wind fused with fresh balsam to create a twist on the classic holiday fragrance.
Let it Snow – Freshly fallen snow coats the ground outside, ready for making a snowman. Inside you’re comforted by the sweet notes of vanilla, toasted coconut, caramelized sugar and zesty nutmeg.
I know, right?! YUMMM!!
