merry shopping

I’m sure most of you have already done a bunch of your holiday shopping, since I assume you are like me and do it all online. But in case you’re still looking for some ideas, here are things I’m giving to others and/or asking Santa for this year.

Hyperbole & a Half book – $11 – If you’re still living under a rock and haven’t read the blog of the same name, you are missing out.


Super Fisheye Lens for your phone – $25 – This just seems fun. I might be addicted to taking photos on my phone though.


Monogram Tote Bags – $36 before any coupon codes – These are a classic for a reason! We have three of these in the large and XL sizes and use them ALL. THE. TIME.

Botanical Labels and Stickers from Rifle Paper Co. – $10 – if you’re a pinterest-y, Martha Stewart type, it would be so fun to have these stickers/labels to dress up your homemade goodies.


Personalized handmade ornaments – $18 – I order one ornament each year for each kiddo with their name and the year. But you could get it personalized any way you’d like!


Here are the ones we got last year, which I love.

Monogram floral wreath notecards – $12 – These are just so lovely, I think everyone needs a set.


Clarisonic Mia – I know, it’s sooooo 2011 up in here. I’m finally jumping on this bandwagon. Any lovers or haters out there?

Golden Goddess Leaf Headband – $23 – I cannot explain it, I just want it.


Would you like to share your favorite item to give or what you’re wishing for this year?

    I had no idea what that face cleaning device was, or that people considered these things necessary? I love the headband too, want. Glad you like the totes!
    Under a rock in PA…. Nice List.

    I have a Clarisonic and would NEVER use anything else again! So worth the investment!
