The It List–Christmas Part 1

With only 28 days of shopping left before Christmas, here are some fun and easy gift ideas to get you in the holiday spirit! 

1.  Mother Lode Weekender TLS Convertible by eBags

Either bought as a gift or a "to me from me" this bag is a great addition to any travel plans.  Mike and I purchased these "packs" for our trip to Europe last year.  They are carry-on size and are comfortable carried as a backpack.  We use ours all the time and I can't imagine traveling without it!

The space saving compartments inside make it easy to get the most bang for your buck. 


2.  Sorel Boots

Winter boots.  I don't have any...yet.  I'm hoping Santa brings some my way this year.  Obviously I don't need them on a day to day basis here in Florida, but they will definitely come in handy for our Wisconsin Christmas plans (my theory is that since we go every other year, these will probably last me the rest of my life)!

Mike has a pair of Sorel boots that his brother got him a couple of Christmases ago and says they are super warm.  The online reviews were also very I have my fingers (and cold toes) crossed!


3.  Family Glassware by Uncommon Goods

As we start our new little family of 3 (only three months away!), I thought these family glassware tumblers were adorable.  They would be perfect for kids when learning to set the table and can be used as place cards to mark each person's special spot.  So cute!



4.  Unique Ornaments by Bronner’s

One tradition that Mike and I have is that we buy an ornament for each other every year, commemorating something that happened over the past 12 months, or any of our interests.  I love looking for unique ornaments that you can't find just anywhere and have had great luck at 

They have anything and everything under the sun when it comes to ornaments; from humpback whales to passports to sushi on a tray.  If you can think it, they probably have it.  Check it out!


5.  Personalized Kitchen Towels by Red Envelope

I have come to realize that if something is personalized, people love it.  I know I do.  These personalized kitchen towels are just the ticket for the foodie in your life.  Red Envelope offers 6 different designs all customizable.  This would be perfect as a hostess gift as well!
