2021 Gift Ideas

I’m sure you’ve seen a lot of gift guides already this holiday season, but if you need a few more ideas, I thought I would share some of my favorite things, items I’m getting others and pieces on my wishlist. Of course, it’s so easy to order online, but don’t forget to support your local businesses! Plus, shopping in person is way more fun.

First up is the gift guide for those interior design lovers. Help them complete their space with a piece that will make them think of you!

| book 1 & 2 | lamp | candle | scalloped tray | blue and white bowl | gold flower | tea towel |

Guys are hard to shop for! I’m sure they get bored by all the clothes, so I added a few other things that might peek their interest.

| bar tools | whiskey cocktail book | sneakers | decanter & old-fashioned glasses | socks |

| needlepoint belt | puffy vest | yeti cooler |

Lastly, I included items for your fashionable friend! In my mind, the more color and texture the better!

| matching top & shorts | woven bag | pave studs | floral dress | sherpa mules | Gucci scarf |

| sunglasses | colorful necklace | teddy headband | shearling sneakers |

I hope you have the most wonderful Christmas season filled with family, friends, good food and lots of laughter!


Stocking Stuffers

Who needs stocking stuffer ideas?! I included everything from fuzzy socks and printed face masks to silk ties and a diamond necklace. I hope these make your Christmas shopping just a little bit easier!

Women’s Stocking Stuffers

| headband | printed masks | fuzzy socks | diamond necklace |

| wrist weights | face roller | sunglasses |

Men’s Stocking Stuffers

| tie 1 & 2 | sunglasses | personalized golf balls | masks |

| accessory travel case | AirPod case |

Gift Guide for the Girls

Need gift ideas for your girls? Mamas, friends, girlfriends? I picked out everything from home decor to beauty depending on what your best gal loves!

| headband | stemless glasses | tiger coasters | pictures 1 & 2 |

| bow heels | leather bag |

Well, you know I love a headband. They are the best accessory and add such a fun pop of color and texture. They also make a great stocking stuffer! If your girl loves to host a get together, stemless wine glasses, colorful coasters and a print on the wall are perfect.

| pajamas | round brush hairdryer | face roller | beauty set | leggings |

| silk pillow case | wrist weights | hoodie & joggers | sneakers |

My new favorite thing is this set of wrist weights! I love a power walk, and these are the perfect addition. Add these leggings and funky sneakers to complete your workout look. Because many of yall are still working from home, shop this loungewear set to make working from home a little more fun and comfy.

| floral dress | eyeshadow palette | shawl | puffer jacket | sunglasses |

| jewelry case | headband | ginger jars |

I’m obsessed with this metallic bomber. How great would this be paired with jeans and a sweater or your go-to workout gear?! You could even layer it over the floral midi dress. One day I hope my home is accessorized with a few ginger gars, and maybe your girl does too.

I hope this post filled with a few of my favorite things helps you shop for your girls this holiday season! XO, MS

Gift Guide for the Guys

Guys can be hard to buy for especially when they have everything. I love buying something that I know they wouldn’t buy for themselves. Personalized gifts are a great option because they show you put thought into your selection, and let’s be real, most guys aren’t going to spend the extra money on their own monogram. Below you’ll find some of my favorite gift ideas and some I’ll even be buying for my guys!

| hoodie & joggers | poker set | coffee table book |

| personalized glasses | suede loafers | AirPods case |

Henry has been told to avoid this blog post because it will give away some of his gifts! He loves the MLB and played baseball growing up, so I really think he’s going to enjoy looking through this coffee table book of old and new baseball parks. He also needs a new pair of loafers and updated athleisure.

| quilted jacket | quilted vest | rolling suitcase | canvas briefcase |

| personalized golf balls | camo slippers | accessories case |

If your guy loves to golf, he’s going to freak out over his very own personalized golf balls. Some people are still working from home, so a fresh pair of slippers paired back to the athleisure set above will be perfect for him. If he’s dreaming of travel, the accessories case and the rolling suitcase with be a great refresh.

I hope this post made your Christmas shopping a little easier this year! Let me know what you think! XO, MS
