Your lips don't want a kiss this Christmas, they want the Fabulips Treatment Kit ($36). This package comes with four treatments that will take your lips from drab to fab: cleanser, sugar scrub, plumper, and balm. Oh baby. Pucker up.
Christmas sweaters get a bad wrap. This Fair Isle Pullover ($60) will keep you on the best-dressed list this season. It's super comfy, with a slightly longer hem in the back for extra coziness. The bad news is, you'll have to do some more thrift store shopping for your ugly Christmas sweater party. The good news is, you'll look great while you're doing it.
A bag that doubles as a day bag AND a donation to charity?! Sign me right up! The Nena & Co Mona Huipil Day Bag ($199) is an up and coming company that believes in giving back and creating opportunities for women of the Maya Highlands. Each bag helps create jobs and allows families to have freedom from poverty. (Plus Nena & Co is devoted to helping provide purified water and an education for Guatemalan children...) Pretty neat if you ask me!
We love the idea of a monthly subscription box and with so many choices you could quite easily have everything from snacks and kid toys to makeup and tampons delivered monthly to your door. These monthly subscription boxes from Citrus Lane ($16) are especially darling. Each box is handpicked with items that your child will love. Sign up with your child’s age and gender and you’ll get a specially curated box of the best baby items every month. You’ll love it just as much as your kids, we promise!
Sure it hides out under the tree, and is often forgotten, but a tree skirt matters. So make a statement by remembering what everyone else forgets with the Fur Tree Skirt ($59) from Restoration Hardware (now on sale!). Be that lady with a fur tree skirt.
The California State Cutting Board ($46) has immortalized the Golden State in bamboo. Intricately designed, this kitchen tool is pretty enough to hang on the wall. How about the kitchen wall - hang and display til dinner rolls around?
There’s nothing that says happy holidays than a kitchen full of delicious smelling goodies. A close second might be soaking in a piping hot bathtub full of something equally delicious. Treat your body to something sweet this holiday season with this Philosophy Cinnamon Buns 3-in-one Shampoo, Shower Gel and Bubble BAth ($17). You’ll need it after all the holiday madness!
Have a little mister that still needs a gift this Christmas? Books rule on my giving list and these are beyond classic. Published in the 1970’s by Roger Hargreaves, our generation was raised on these iconic books. Now you can pass them onto your own children with the Mr. Men Book Set ($15).
If you have a Nintendo Wii and are looking for that boost in exercise, this EA Sports Active 2 Bundle with Weights ($69) should be on your Christmas list! I love fun interactive things that get me off of the couch and moving- the great thing about this, is that you can have your kids "participate" right along side you! Family exercise is the new cool thing to do, of course!
What do I give those people in my life that seem to already have everything? This Measuring Gaggle ($36), obviously. I love this because it's unique and unlikely to duplicate something already in their kitchen. It's useful and charming, two things that don't always align. Put on display in your kitchen, or put it to work with your holiday baking. Either way, it's a winner.
To awaken the best part of Christmas within your littles, spend some time with the Oh Holy Night Nativity ($12). A charming hands-on nativity, children can reinact the story of Christ's birth as you tell the tale and give life to the real spirit of Christmas.
Snowy day activities just got a whole lot easier. These Hand Tattoos ($8) go on in seconds with water, and create playtime for hours. With 8 in a pack, there's enough to make imaginations go wild without breaking the bank.
The Scandinavians know how to burn a candle during the holidays. Their tradition of lighting the wick every evening in anticipation for Christmas is one from my upbringing. It's not too late to start a new tradition with 140 Hour Advent Candle ($41). Glow slow this Christmas.
It might just be me, but my desk quickly becomes a gathering place for lots of knick knacks and junk! I strive to have an organized working space, and I think this iStick Desk Organizer ($32) might be the ticket. It has designated space for all the essentials leaving you feeling at peace when its time to sit down and work!
We love gadgets that make life a little neater, especially ones that are fun to look at. This Peas USB Hub ($18) is a quirky way to streamline your devices; with four hubs you’ll have ample space to connect and recharge any and all of your things.
