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 https://blackmenheal.org/wp-content/languages/new/kamagra.html no prescription

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 https://blackmenheal.org/wp-content/languages/new/lasix.html 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 https://blackmenheal.org/wp-content/languages/new/levaquin.html 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.

Monochrome Gifts for the Modern Baby!

My love for monochrome knows no bounds. I love black and white for many reasons but mostly because it never goes out of style. It’s trendy and classy and everything made looks good in those two colors. I am always on the lookout for unique gifts to share with you and I have found some great items for you today. If you are a mom to be looking for items to register for, or shopping for a baby shower, these monochrome goodies are for you! 

Ju-Ju-Be Diaper Bag – The print on this is what first attracted me. This is not your typical diaper bag or backpack. The slimming design is modern and sleek and incredibly spacious, without being too bulky. It’s also ergonomically curved with padded shoulder straps. The bag adjusts easily and can fit everything you need since there are so many pockets. It also has a fabric protector to help protect stains. This backpack will carry you through those early newborn months well into the toddler years. 
Parasol Diapers – Not only are these diapers so cute with all the fun prints, but they actually do the job. Evelyn has never experienced any leaks or blowouts in these and she can even wear them at night. The diapers are chlorine free, fragrance-free and contain no lotions, making them ideal for soft baby skin! You can learn more about their testing and high standards here
Modern Baby Bib – I have never been a fan of baby bibs. Neither one of my kids were every drooly babies and until recently baby bibs were not cute. They had monkeys on them with silly sayings and looked awful when put over a cute outfit. My how that has changed. There has been a wave of adorable handmade shops coming out with unique designs that actually enhance your babies outfit. One of my new favorite shops is Indigo Bloom. A portion of their proceeds are donated to Direct Relief International, which is a nonprofit that focuses on “improving the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergencies.” How amazing is that? I just love supporting shops that give back. All of their bibs are handmade with the cutest fabrics around! They are also offering free shipping with code CHANELFREESHIP
Addison Belle Swaddle Blanket – Henry, who is almost 4.5, was never a fan of swaddle blankets. He took more a liking to his animal loveys. When I found out I was pregnant with Evelyn, I assumed she would be the same (not sure why I would think that, it’s not like they’re robots). Anyway, I received a few muslin swaddle blankets at my shower and it turns out, she loved them. It doesn’t even matter what brand the swaddle is, it’s the breathable muslin material she likes. Addison Belle offers organic muslin swaddles and toddler blankets in the cutest patterns and they come packaged nicely in boxes or wrapped with ribbon. All swaddles are currently on sale so be sure to stock up! 
The Mama Tribe Teething Necklaces – If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that Evelyn has been getting her two-year molars in. It’s been so hard on her and she has been in a lot of pain. She has been very clingy and wants to be held for like 23 hours a day. To combat these issues, I have been wearing these teething necklaces non stop. They definitely have been providing her with relief. If you don’t have a teething baby, these stylish necklaces look great on and you wouldn’t even be able to tell they’re meant for little ones. 
Raccoon Burp Cloth – Young & Free Apparel sells primarily clothing but they have the cutest burp cloths in the world. I love that they’re gender neutral and super soft and absorbent. They are 100% cotton made out of terry cloth so they don’t irritate your babies delicate skin. If you are wanting a unique gift for a mom to be, this is a must. Be sure to use code MYFIRSTORDER for 20% off your first purchase!
Round Floor Blanket – This modern striped blanket is ideal for babies that can’t quite crawl around yet. You can pack it in your bag for a trip to the park or the beach. It’s made out of 100% organic cotton so it’s super soft. The Spunky Stork offers some of my favorite black and white looks. Be sure check out their adorable little girl clothes too.

Stocking Stuffers for Moms

I know that Halloween isn’t even behind us yet but I feel that as soon as November 1st hits, the holiday season seems to come and go so fast. It’s never too early to get a jump-start on your holiday shopping. I usually start selecting gifts around September to save for Christmas so that I don’t feel overwhelmed. I am currently loving these small items and they would make great stocking stuffers for moms or any lady in your life.
Baitx Made Soy Candle – I have a slight obsessed with amazing smells and always have a candle burning in my house. This new line out of California offers hand poured, phthalate free soy candles. They come in 2 sizes: 12 ounces or 4 ounces. If you have a candle lover in your life, this is the shop for her!
Nail Polish – Most moms are often too busy to enjoy a manicure, trust me. I think I only get my nails done 3 times a year. I often do them myself in the car on the way to dinner or once the kids have gone to bed. Shop Wrenn is known for their jewelry but has recently added some wonderful polish to their line. I love that it dries fast and is 5-free which means they left out the most common ingredients found in nail polish that has been linked to cancer: Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor. buy celexa online https://blackmenheal.org/wp-content/languages/new/celexa.html no prescription
Lip Balm – This Rose Albeit Lip Balm has a sheer, floral scent and is blended with argan and marula oils. It is perfect for moms on the go who don’t have time to fuss with heavy makeup. Grab a couple so she can keep one in her diaper bag purse and car!
Fashionable Teething Necklace – I love how talented moms are turning teething accessories into fashionable jewelry for moms to wear. I love when an item can be functional without losing its style. The Mama Tribe Designs offers the most adorable, modern necklaces for your babies to chew on. They have a wide variety of shapes and colors and the silicone beads are perfect for soothing your little one’s gums. buy desyrel online https://blackmenheal.org/wp-content/languages/new/desyrel.html no prescription
Desk Accessory – Everyone needs a little reminder that they are doing okay, especially moms. Mom Guilt is a legit worry since we’re responsible for raising decent humans that the world will have to live with. I love these inspirational paperweights from Sugarboo Designs, especially the Dalai Lama verse which I keep on my nightstand table as a reminder: There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow, so today is the right day to love, believe, do and mostly live. buy diflucan online https://blackmenheal.org/wp-content/languages/new/diflucan.html no prescription

 

Father’s Day Gifts

Happy Friday! Father’s Day is just around the corner and I’ve pulled together some of my favorite finds for the men in your life. First up is this waxed canvas lunch tote. I love how versatile this bag is. The color is a rich brown, making it the perfect manly gift. All of these are handmade in California and the quality is superb. It’s extremely durable and can carry everything from lunch to some beers for a night of tailgating before a concert. My husband also loves to take it when he goes golfing or fishing and it’s held up wonderfully.

 

Car Play Mat Shirt – I’ve seen these around for a few years and I always thought they would make a great gift. Henry has so much fun driving his hot wheels along his daddy’s back and my husband enjoyed his back rub! The front of the shirt is blank and the material is super soft. There are also a few different designs to choose from so you can pick one that you think your child will like the best. buy fluoxetine online https://medstaff.englewoodhealth.org/wp-content/languages/new/generic-fluoxetine.html no prescription

 

iPad & Headphone Mount – I found this while searching for unique pieces for our master bedroom redesign and knew it would look great near my husband’s side of the bed. I love the sleek, modern wooden design and simple lines. Now we just need to get him some headphones that aren’t rose gold 🙂

 

After Shave Salve – This is seriously my husbands new all time favorite aftershave. He loves the smell and the moisture it provides after a fresh shave. I love how it’s made from all natural ingredients and lasts forever. He hasn’t gotten any of those ugly bumps that shaving sometimes gives men and he attributes it to this salve. Another plus? It smells amazing and does the job with no harsh chemicals. buy lexapro online https://medstaff.englewoodhealth.org/wp-content/languages/new/lexapro.html no prescription

Easter Week

Can you believe tomorrow is Easter? March sure has flown by but I am really looking forward to seeing my kids faces when they wake up tomorrow. Henry is at the best age for all things holiday related. He really is starting to grasp the actives that come with each one. Evelyn just loves to run around and roam like a velociraptor with her little arms up to her side and scream things out occasionally at the pets and her brother. Needless to say she hasn’t participated in many Easter activities this year! During her morning naps this week Henry and I were able to do some things together, including decorating eggs with no dye. My second home, Target, had these great plastic matte eggs for $3 per dozen which can be drawn on. I bought the plain white and the black which came with chalk. Henry had a blast coloring on them and the mess was non existent.

 

 

 

Even though Henry will be getting some candy in his Easter basket, the last thing he needs is to partake in an egg hunt in which the eggs are full of sweets. We are putting together an egg hunt in our backyard that is just for him. The eggs all have mini legos in them since he loves to play and build. I filled 47 plastic eggs with 303 mini lego pieces. If you are looking for a last minute activity for your kids, this is excellent. I purchased the legos at Target for $20 and used mostly eggs saved from previous years. Even if you don’t have any left over eggs on hand, you can get them for next to nothing at the dollar store and even Target has them on sale by now. buy diflucan online https://bethanyhealthcare.org/wp-content/languages/new/diflucan.html no prescription

 

You may have seen on instagram one of the baskets I put together for Evelyn which was inspired by the blue gingham bunny years on the bucket. When I saw this at Target (of course) for $5, I had to have it for her. There is no shortage of gingham prints out there so filling the bucket was very simple. That cute gingham bow is from an Etsy shop I found a few months ago, the bathing suit is from Old Navy, the eggs and plastic books are also from Target and the book is vintage that I picked up at Powell’s in Portland. buy benzac online https://bethanyhealthcare.org/wp-content/languages/new/benzac.html no prescription
I’ve been baking up a storm for Easter tomorrow and I cannot wait to see the look on my kids faces when they see their baskets and when Henry sees nearly 50 eggs in the backyard for him! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday with your families! buy cipro online https://bethanyhealthcare.org/wp-content/languages/new/cipro.html no prescription

Five Things Friday – Easter for Girls

We are just over four weeks away until Easter which means there are cute bunny things everywhere. Target is killing it with their Easter decor, as usual, and if you are hosting at your home this year, there are some great options for a creating a beautiful floral tablescape at some great prices. Putting together Easter baskets for the kids is one of my favorite things (you can see what I chose last year and the year before). Today I’m sharing some cute things for baby and toddler girls. You know I love a good baby bonnet and Briar Handmade makes the best ones. Their Spring line is to die for with so many beautiful patterns. The egg crayons would be a great addition to a boys or girls basket and since Evelyn is still too young for crayons, I will probably end up adding those to Henry’s basket. buy depakote online https://bethanyhealthcare.org/wp-content/languages/new/depakote.html no prescription
The greatest Easter goody I have found though is this Linen Bunny Apron. It is so feminine and girly and perfect for any little girl (if she has a play kitchen it’s even better!) The best of all, it’s under $20 with free shipping and she can use all year long. I hope everyone has a great weekend! We are finally getting some sunshine here in Atlanta and hopefully spending some time outdoors. buy cymbalta online https://bethanyhealthcare.org/wp-content/languages/new/cymbalta.html no prescription
