Wednesday Wishlist: Holiday Gift Guide

Hey guys! I can’t believe this is the last weekend before Christmas, which means Nico and I have A LOT of shopping to do this weekend. To be honest, I have been buying tons of gifts online this year because of the great deals and quick shipping! My neighbor just told me that him and his wife finished all their shopping last night on Amazon Prime – they even got the gifts wrapped and delivered to their family’s house in PA! #genius That way, when they load up their car with the baby, all the luggage and the dog for the 6+ hour drive, they don’t have to pack any of the gifts! Amazon lets you put in different delivery address and they gift wrap for you and even put a note on each saying not to open until Christmas! Love that!

How cute are these seasonal inspired gifts? They are perfect when you just don’t know what to get someone or even better for yourself if you’re hosting a holiday party! My mom gets me Christmas socks every year and I wear them all winter long ….and into the Spring šŸ™‚ Oh, and all the links to the exact products are below the collages – just click on the number!

I mean, this time of year Iā€™m all about drawstring pants, hot peppermint tea, fuzzy socks and a great candle. Even better if the hot tea is replaced with a hot mulled wine. So basic, yet so heavenly. I made it recently and put up a recipe here.


Wednesday Wishlist: Gifts for the Food Lover

I was never a fan of online shopping — my parents never did it when I lived at home, so I guess I just didn’t think it was a good option. Turns out, it’s pretty amazing. I mean not only do most retailers offer Free Shipping, but you can basically buy a bunch of stuff (like clothes or shoes, for example), try them on and ship back what doesn’t fit..for free. It’s kind of genius especially if you don’t like fighting for a parking spot or waiting in long lines in the stores during this holiday rush. There are definitely times that I end up not buying something because of the long line.

SO, I started exploring with online shopping, ever since Nico got signed up for Amazon Prime (w/o knowing about it but we’re so obsessed now!)  For the past year, I have been sending Food Baskets as sympathy gifts to friends or family who are mourning a loss and live too far away — It’s different from the traditional flowers and definitely offers a bit of comfort #comfortfood.

As the Holidays are approaching, these food baskets also serve as amazing gifts – especially when you don’t know what to get someone. I mean, who doesn’t love food or coffee or wine? It’s the perfect time to share with all the parties going on, so it is a perfect gift to bring to share.

I selected some of my favorite food items you can order right from the couch at home:

Best of Cyber Monday Deals

Happy Cyber Monday! I hope everyone had plenty of leftovers over the weekend and is taking some time to do some desk shopping today. I had way too much food and even ended my weekend at a diner after a night out of drinking for my best friend’s 30th birthday on Saturday, not to mention the 4 hour drive home from Jersey, stopping at Mc’Ds  to fuel up! Ahh, I’ll be doing a nice little cleanse before the next round of holiday parties. #judging

For all the sales today, I took some time to list out (at the end of this post) the best online deals along with discount codes to use. Each number coordinates with a direct link to that item at the bottom of each collage to make it easier to shop.
