Happy Friday! I know it’s been a killer of a week. Last minute shopping + gift wrapping + tying up loose ends at work. But, we made it! It’s Friday. I have a bottle of chardonnay in the fridge waiting for my arrival. And I cannot wait to enjoy the next 11 days work free! And guess what peeps? I’ve pre-blogged so you will still be getting emails everyday next week to your inbox while I’m still snoozing in bed. And tomorrow – the last Elf on the Damn Shelf – Final days. Have you planned out the departure of your Elf? Ha. Kidding. Of course you have, probably since December 2nd.
I’ve got 5 things on my mind…..
ONE – Stocking Stuffers // This year, the first year EVER, I nailed it on the stocking. I normally hit up Target about this time and walk up and down the isles looking for random shit to fill the stocking up. Not this year. I’ve been gathering little goodies as Bay mentioned she liked things. Most things, I even got on sale. Which is a huge plus. Stocking stuffers can get expensive AF. So if you’re in need of some ideas…check out what I grabbed below. I’ve linked every little item I’m stuffing the stocking with this year. And Santa gets all the damn credit…lol!
Chocolates // Slippers // Honey // Ruffle Top // Emoji Coin Purse // Pom-Pom Hair tie // Mary’s Angel Ornament // Velvet Hair Bow // 2018 Planner // Amazon Echo Dot // Hand Sanitzer Kit
TWO – Teacher Gifts // I had messages asking for this sooner, and I straight up dropped the ball. I meant to share this last week and forgot. This would make for a great hostess gift + homie gift + neighbor gift. Really anyone, if you ask me. I know I’d be pumped with Seka Hills products + spiced nuts 🙂 Anyway, this is what Bay took her teachers yesterday. I’ve already got a request for more of the spiced nuts once school starts back up after the new year.
Seka Hills Olive Oil // Balsamic Vinegar
THREE – The Royals // Raise you’re hand if you’re as obsessed with the Prince Harry + Meghan Markle as I am? Their engagement photos are everything. I mean, that dress! I die! What a lucky bitch!
Another day, another gift guide. Really I just feel like shit and I don’t feel like typing a recipe. Or taking a #ootd. Or pretending that I’m all peppy and shit. So, another gift guide it is.
Once again, ALL tried + true or on my actual wish list for the holidays.
There’s something for the ladies that like to cook. Lovers of pretty things. And cute stuff to wear.
Those jams + robe are calling my name right about now.
Today I’ve rounded up some of my tried + true favorite things. Everything on this list would make for a great bff + hostess with the most + teacher gift. I’m always on the hunt for the perfect little something for the chicks in my life. You know, the ones that you want to put some extra thought into. The ones that a Starbucks card or bottle of wine just wont cut it. Don’t get me wrong, I like all those things! Ha.
There’s something for the lady who loves to entertain.
The friend that loves to cook.
Or the girl who just loves pretty things.
Oh yeah, and did I mention they are all under $25? Yep. Love my peeps, but I’m also on a budget.
Father’s Day is RIGHT around the corner! If you’re anything like me, then you are currently scrambling to find the “perfect” little something for the dudes in your life too. We’ve got a solid 4 days to make shit happen ladies!!
I’ve rounded up some go-to classics and some things that I would even like…lol. Hope this helps a sister out!
Gift cards are always a great option for SUPER last minute too 🙂
Let’s be honest, do kids even pick out their classroom Valentines anymore? I know Bailey doesn’t….lol. I search Pinterest for a couple cute options and see what I can find at Target. She’s ALWAYS on board with whatever I find. This year I totally lucked out. I headed to Target to grab a couple dinner ingredients and whala – my eye caught these cute eraser rings. I grabbed two bags and called it good. Hit Pinterest the next day with key word Valentine eraser rings and this adorable free printable popped up.
It was meant to be.
Here’s what you’ll need:
