Gifts for Her: Under $40!

December 15th, 2013

1 // It by Alexa Chung – My sister in law suggested this book to me. Apparently all her friends who remind her of me have read it. Can’t wait :)  2 // Chalet Turban – Keeps the head of any creative warm wether she is just needing to look good and get inspired, or if she is genuinely just cold. Win win. 3 // DSLR Camera Hand Strap – The thing you didn’t realize you needed until you realized you really needed it. For anyone with a DSLR, it is a must. 4 // French Press – Coffee has never been so special 5 // La Vie Boho Cardigan – I mean, could you say anything negative about this gorgeous and comfy sweater? Nope. 6 // Feather Tumblr – This would look perfect on any desk or work space. Clean. Special. Functional. Perfection. 7 // Cream + Sugar – To go with her special coffee. 8 // Wooden Flash Drive – If you have to transfer files… Do it with style.

I’d be lying if I said that I had all of my shopping done. 
I’d be lying if I had any of my holiday shopping done.
I really like to go shopping (or make gifts) in a good head space, after much long and hard consideration on what I want to give the special people in my life.
This weekend I was able to think through these things a lot, and I feel so accomplished. 
I have a plan of attack.
And now, it’s time to attack.
This week. Yes. the week before Christmas. I will be starting my holiday shopping.
But the truth is, Christmas (for both sides of my family) has gotten so wonderful over the past couple years. We usually do secret santa, so we are focusing on just one of our family members, and then most of our time is spent giggling about silly stocking stuffers, and enjoying much needed time with each other. So to be honest, I could probably show up empty handed and no one would whine. Which is really cool of my family, but not how I roll.
So long story short, I can’t wait to put the pedal to the metal this week and buy/make some things for the most wonderful people in my life. Gosh. Christmas. THE BEST.
Also, long story short, in the spirit of gifts, I am sharing above some gift ideas I thought about for people like me. And me, of course. So, if you are looking to purchase for a fellow creative, or me, well, have fun!
