8 Great Holiday Finds

Finding holiday gifts that suit your loved ones can really be difficult – especially if they have everything!  I think that many of us fall under this category  because for the last decade or so the internet has made it easy to buy what we need/want without much waiting.  However, I must admit that I still love receiving gifts even though I don’t need anything.  It’s the excitement of the packaging, the unknown, and most importantly that someone went out of their way just for you.  So if your having trouble finding something, here are some holiday finds that may give you ideas…

1.  Mum Slippers,  Uncommon Goods  2. Sparkling Bow Tote bag,  Forever 21   3.  Spooled Candle, Anthropologie  4.  Winter Tree Boxes, West Elm.

5.  Coral Cluster Necklace, Charm & Chain  6.  Suede Ankle Bootie, Madewell  7.  All Natural Pear Candy Cane, Hammond  8.  Snowflake Cookie Box Kit, The Container Store.

Doesn’t the coral necklace above just look so vintage chic?  It’s made of glass faceted beads and has a perfect coral color that makes me happy.   (Update:  It must make alot of people happy because it appears that it’s now sold out.  However, they do have this necklace available in turquoise).  In fact, I can see pairing up the necklace and the gray suede booties in the same outfit – coral and gray go so well together.

Let it be known that I am not a fan of peppermint candy canes.  I think the reason is that one year when I was a kid we used them as ornaments for our Christmas tree.  When it was time to take the Christmas tree and its ornaments down, the candy canes were also packaged away.  The same candy canes were used for about 2 years.  By the second year, the candy canes had begun to liquefy and so an awful sticky peppermint mess got on our Christmas decorations.  I remember getting just sick from the potent smell.  From that point on I just didn’t like peppermint candy canes (if I ever did).  BUT, I do like other flavors and Hammond’s has candy canes in other flavors that are all natural and handmade since 1922.

Finally, if your making treats to give for the holidays check out The Container Store for holiday boxes.  These look like gifts themselves.
