Last Minute Cards with American Greetings

Who else is in shock that Christmas is less than 72 hours? I can definitely say that 2016 has been one of the fastest years of my life and December has flown by. Life can get the best of me as a stay at home mom of two and the last thing I want to do is brave stores with last minute shoppers. We have several family members in different states and friends all over the US. Sometimes the thought of addresses an stamping 60+ cards can be daunting. With American Greetings, you can easily send cards anywhere in the world with the click of a button.

American Greetings has hundreds of holiday cards to choose from and you can easily search by theme and design. If you’re a long time reader of my blog or know me in real life, then you know I have crazy cat lady tendencies. My husband always jokes that if I wasn’t married with children I would live in a one bedroom apartment with 27 cats. You can probably guess what the first thing I searched for was. I love the humor section on American Greetings. It’s always nice to make someone smile, especially if they are having a tough time around the holiday season.

5 Last Minute Gifts for Men & Women!

Where did 2016 go? Christmas is in 11 days and I can’t possibly wrap my head around everything I have left to do. If you’re anything like me, you still have some shopping left. Nearly everything in todays post can be purchased on Amazon or the sites have delivery before Christmas!
Nature’s Kindle Candles – Handmade in California, these hand-crafted soy candles are some of the best smelling on the market today. My favorites are the Campfire, Coffee Shop, and Apple Cinnamon. Everything is under $30 and they have several smaller sizes available. These are perfect stocking stuffer ideas, especially for the men in your life!
Daniel Wellington Watch – I recently received one of these watches and I was blown away by the clean, modern look. Typically I don’t like bulky bracelets or watches but this one is lightweight and the perfect size. They offer classic styles for both men and women and are simple enough to be worn every day. Aside from sold in stores you can also find them on Amazon and take advantage of the prime shipping before Christmas!

Also have a look at these brilliant Sinn watches as they are just incredible so well worth and will be a perfect gift for your love ones!
S’well ‘Sparkling Champagne’ Stainless Steel Water Bottle – These water bottles are available in 36 colors and three sizes. They keep your drink cold for 24 hours and hot for up to 12 hours. It’s the ideal gift idea for anyone who’s constantly at the office or on the road. I love the champagne color for women and the Onyx for men. You can also find these on Amazon for quick shipping!
Weekend Bag – It’s always fun to start the year off with a new bag for future travel. I love a great duffle or weekend bag because they are usually gender neutral and can fit so much stuff. They’re perfect for a short road trip or as a carry on. Lately I have been loving my StorkSak Cabin Carry on and cannot wait to use it for our Austin trip in two months!

Cross Pens – My mother has always had the most beautiful handwriting and she even addressed all of our wedding invitations! She can also be hard to shop for so I knew this pen from Cross Pens would make the most beautiful gift. This holiday season my brother and I wanted to get her something she could cherish every day that brought her happiness. I love how @crosspens engraved our names on the pen so we would always be on her mind (as if we weren’t already!) They also have complimentary engraving so you can add that special touch. If my dad were still with us, I know he would have loved this pen. Even with having a computer and a smart phone, he still used old fashioned pen and paper all the time. Every time I see a nice ballpoint pen, I think of him. buy kamagra online no prescription
Still stuck for ideas? Gadgets are always a popular gifting option. Take a look at this fun guide filled with gadgets for men over on the Coolest Gadgets site. Do you have any go-to gifts you swear by? Leave them in the comments below!

Luxury Chocolate You Need

Raise your hand if you have a huge sweet tooth but the thought of baking overwhelms you. Or if the thought of going to the grocery store during the holidays at all stresses you out. As a stay at home mom, I love when things are easy. That includes being able to do most of my holiday shopping online. Vosges Haut Chocolate offers the most luxury, gourmet chocolate on the market. Everything they make is beautifully crafted and packaged. Almost like you’re opening a one-of-a-kind designer gown. I’ve never tried anything so rich and decadent in my life. There are several people I know that can be tough to shop for but I’ve learned that people always love great food, drinks, and desserts, especially around the holiday season. All hail Vosges and their incredibly delicious chocolates and treats.
One of the most popular pairings they offer are the wine and chocolate gift boxes. I have several people in my life who love great wine and great chocolate and these luxury pairings are a total home run. Here a few of my other favorites from Vosges!
This Bubbles + Brunch Gift Box would be perfect for any lady boss. Buttermilk pancakes with fruitwood smoked bacon chocolate smothered liberally with aged bourbon barrel syrup and toast with a morning mimosa. It does not get much better than this, especially when you have some time to yourself to indulge.  If anyone wants to send me one, email me for my address 🙂Drinking Chocolates. Need I say more? We set up a hot chocolate bar every year from the day after Thanksgiving well into the New Year. There are fewer things I love than coming downstairs in a quiet house before everyone wakes up and making hot chocolate with all the fun toppings. The gourmet drinking chocolates would taste like heaven! buy lasix online no prescription
I love champagne. Probably too much. It’s my go to drink and these Champagne Truffles scream my name. They are blended with 85% dark chocolate and Krug Champagne so you know they will probably be the best thing you’ve tasted all year. Did you know that you can store any of the Vosges truffles in the freezer for up to 4 months (just make sure they’re sealed). Once you’re ready to enjoy, you can pull them out let them come to room temperature!
Any of these chocolate bars would make the perfect stocking stuffer. I also love how you can buy them in collections for someone who really appreciates gourmet chocolate. I’m putting the Noble Pig Chocolate Bars under the tree for my husband. He loves bacon, beer, and chocolate so this is a no brainer. buy levaquin online no prescription
I can confidently say that the Caramel Marshmallows were by far the most amazing thing I have ever tasted. I hated that I had to share them with my husband (you’re welcome babe). If you only order one thing from Vosges, these need to be it!
Going to a New Year’s party? Need a gift for your boss who has everything? Want to send something just because? Vosges has gifts starting at $25 and under so there is really something for everyone. Use code HENEVE15 for 15% off your order! You can find Vosges on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

3-Step Holiday Sangria

Hosting parties and entertaining is something I have always loved to do. With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, I love having a go-to recipe that is inexpensive, easy, and tastes delicious. Sangria is always a crowd pleaser and so simple to prepare.  The cranberries and apple cider in this recipe add a festive feel and it’s great for winter months. One bottle of wine makes about 8 servings of sangria, so you can always make two batches. That is the beauty of make ahead cocktails, you can do this the night before a party!

Holidays with Harry & David

A few years ago, around late December, I ordered a Harry & David Gift Basket for a friend. It was late in the month, I hadn’t had time to do any shopping, and I was just flat out exhausted. I remember having to call and order because my internet was down. I was dreading making the call because I hate talking on the phone and rely so much on the convenience of online ordering. I was so pleasantly surprised at how amazing their customer service was! They went above and upon to make sure my friend got the gift basket at her home in such short notice. It was at that moment when I knew I loved this company and would be a life long customer. Since then, I have always referred my friends and family to Harry & David.
One of my favorite things about these amazing gift baskets is how they are equipped for sharing. Everything is packaged nicely in their own bags or boxes so that you can enjoy the treats longer. I love opening up the yogurt covered pretzels for the kids as an afternoon snack, or enjoying some fruitcake for breakfast with coffee. Everything is top notch, fresh quality and absolutely delicious. This Classic Christmas Gift Basket comes with gourmet popcorn, milk chocolate covered cherries, assorted truffles, peppermint bark, jordan almonds, fruitcake, yogurt covered pretzels, raspberry filled shortbread cookies (by far my favorite) and Royal Riviera pears. The pears taste like Heaven on Earth  and are the most delicious fruit you will try this holiday season. buy acticin online no prescription
The presentation of the baskets are always so gorgeous. When I think of Harry & David, I think of high quality gifts for: business partners, people who are hard to shop for, and host/hostess gifts for parties. Everyone loves holiday treats but not everyone has time to spend all day baking or braving the grocery story rush. That is what makes Harry & David so special; they do all of the work for you.  If you have any last minute shopping to do, or you just want to make someone’s day, be sure to keep Harry & David in mind.

Last Minute Stocking Stuffers

Opening the stockings is one of my favorite parts of Christmas! It’s when everyone really gets surprised with the little but thoughtful things ‘Santa’ remembers to bring them and there is so much excitement to see what they hold! Growing up, my stocking was always filled with face creams, makeup, perfume, etc. so today I am rounding up some of my favorite last minute gifts for the lady in your life!
My husband is a huge soccer fan and next year Atlanta is finally getting soccer team! This jersey will be perfect to wear when we go cheer on the Atlanta United! If you have any soccer fans in your life (and who doesn’t?), check out some MLS goodies here.
This adorable trinket dish from Tri-Coastal Designs is only $8 dollars and so perfect for a nightstand table to catch jewelry on.
Speaking of jewelry, how perfect is this bracelet with my kids initials? I love smaller pieces that don’t get in the way and the entire line from Brin and Bell fits my needs. buy advair online no prescription
Busy moms and women are constantly forgetting things … at least I am. A small notebook fits perfectly inside my purse and car center console. I am always thinking of things I need to do while waiting in the carpool line and this is perfect for jotting down my ongoing to do list.
An adorable coffee cup, no brainer on that one. Loving this 90% cream, 10 % coffee since it describers me perfectly and this All You Need is Love mug.
I rarely have time to escape for a manicure, but I love changing up the color on my nails (even if it’s the drive through at Zaxby’s). This non-toxic, odorless nail polish from SOPHi is safe to use even while pregnant and doesn’t contain all of those horrible ingredients. There are 25 different shades and each is under $8 a bottle!
My hands gets so dry in the winter and I am always forgetting to apply lotion. I am obsessed with the Capri Blue Volcano hand cream from Anthropologie. It’s formulated with coconut oil and shea butter to smoothe and soften your skin.
Dry Shampoo/Face Wipes. Have you ever been driving and realized you haven’t washed your hair in 3 days? Yeah … me too. I keep mini dry shampoo bottles in my purse for when I need a pick me up. This floral scent from Batiste is my favorite and I know tons of my girlfriends love it too. This would also make the perfect addition to a “new mama” gift! I also keep Yes to Cucumbers Towelettes nearby in case I’m forced to get out of my car. {If my husband is reading this, I would love an oversized stocking filled with these please}. buy orlistat online no prescription
Lastly, energy bars for on the go are a must. I keep probably 10 on hands at all time in my car, purse, and diaper bag. These Redd Superfood Bars fill me up and keep me focused all day. They’re perfect for men or women and will definitely be one of the most delicious things eating throughout the year!

Unique Christmas Gifts for Girls

1. Ice Cream Stand – Tenderleaf Toys is one of my favorite websites for unique gifts. I featured their parking garage in my gift guide for boys. This colorfully painted wooden ice cream stand is perfect for little hands and big imaginations. It encourages imitative play, social skills, communication skills and promotes dexterity, hand-eye coordination, and balance. I know Evelyn will get a lot of use out of this over the next few years! 
2. Lovey – Evelyn is obsessed with her muslin swaddle blankets but they are becoming too big for her to be dragging around now that she’s older. She seriously reminds me of Lunis sometimes and I cringe thinking about how many germs get on those blankets. Blankets make great gifts. There are even websites like now, where you can create personalized photo blanket. I’ve been on a mission to find her a smaller lovey that is easier to carry around and doesn’t get so dirty. Enter Bearcubs Co. At 17″x17″, these loveys are the perfect size for your growing toddler. They are so soft and snuggly and fit perfectly in a diaper bag. I am obsessed with this classic Christmas print and think it would be an amazing gift for babies first Christmas. And let’s talk about this monogram toddler blanket. How sweet is that E? If you’re ordering for Christmas, be sure to get your orders in by December 1!
3. A not so typical baby doll – Bash Petite Dolls hand makes each of their unique dolls in Connecticut. Their creative use of patterns and colors make for gorgeous, one of a kind dolls. I first discovered them on Instagram and spent a good 15 minutes scrolling through their incredible gallery of beautiful dolls. If you are interested in any of these amazing dolls or even something more, message them on Etsy or Instagram and they can help you. Be sure to mention code HENEV10 for 10% off! {good until 2.28.17}
4. Kid Friendly iPhone holder – Even though we try and limit screen time, sometimes we do give in. It’s hard for our kids to sit still while waiting for dinner and there are days when I really need a shower … so the iPad or phone wins. This adorable furry stuffed animal by PawdPet is more than just a cuddle buddy. It has a magnetic belly so the phone sticks to it, preventing damage. There is a pocket in the bag and it has a carry strap. I have to say that this is one of the most genius products that has come out this year. 
5. Building Blocks – These are definitely gender neutral but since I have an almost two year old daughter, they are going in my girl gift guide. Smiling Tree Toys handcraft each of their toys in Minnesota. I love that you can get most of their items personalized. One of my favorite items of theirs is this custom name puzzle. Evelyn has really been into animals and letters. For some reason she thinks every letter she sees is an A. She is constantly yelling out “an A! an A!” These Picture Alphabet Blocks will be perfect for her to learn the alphabet. 
Can you believe that Christmas is in just under a month? Where has the time gone! Have you done all of your shopping or are you late to the game like me?
