Now that we have fin­ished with the basics — men, women & kids gift guides - we are going to move on to themes! First up is a gift guide for the foodie. A foodie is defined as a per­son with a par­tic­u­lar inter­est in food; a gourmet. I have never con­sid­ered myself a foodie, but I sure do love food! I was think­ing these gifts would be great for a food love, a home cook or a chef.

My hus­band does a lot of the cook­ing in our house and I think that he would love that beau­ti­ful cut­ting board, the cook­book or the Bloody Mary Mix. I know that I would enjoy that toffee!

Happy Thanks­giv­ing! A lit­tle belated as it was yes­ter­day, but hope­fully you are all still cel­e­brat­ing today like I am. Today my hubby and I are cel­e­brat­ing in Win­ter­set (the town we are mov­ing to in Decem­ber). There is a town fes­ti­val that includes a hol­i­day movie, photo’s with santa, an ugly sweater & gin­ger­bread house con­tests, live music and for the grand finale — the fes­ti­val of lights!

We are both excited about the upcom­ing move, which is only two weeks away. It is going to be so won­der­ful to have Christ­mas in our new home. Also, a beau­ti­ful blan­ket of snow arrived this week. Lov­ing win­ter as long as I don’t have to drive too far. To keep you cre­ative until next time…

Fun finds this week:

Today we move on from sweet & dainty to down and dirty — yes, I am talk­ing about lit­tle boys! I actu­ally found some truly fun and adorable gifts for the lit­tle guys on your list this year. Ani­mals and robots seemed to be a big trend for boys this year.

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

Sev­eral of these gifts were cute enough to make it onto my list. LOVE the unique block robots and the lion coat. The lion coat doesn’t come in my size, but if it I did — I would be all over that!

Now that we have the guys & dolls out of the way, we move on to the fun shop­ping! I love shop­ping for kids as they are quite easy to please. Offer them some­thing cute/fun and you are a sure win! That actu­ally sounds about like shop­ping for myself, I love cute and fun things. Today’s is girls day, but check back Wednes­day for awe­some boys gifts!

So my favorites for this week are the crown (what lit­tle girl doesn’t want a crown?) and #5 the sweet lit­tle cot­ton dress with foxes on it. Hon­estly, I think every gift in this col­lec­tion would make any lit­tle girl’s holiday!

PIE

Win­ter makes me want to nes­tle in and eat soup, nib­ble on pie and drink lots of cof­fee. I love gaz­ing out the win­dow at the beau­ti­ful snow and lis­ten­ing to the whis­tle of the wind. Work­ing from home has blessed me with a greater appre­ci­a­tion for snow, now that I don’t have to risk driving.

Beyond the snow, this week was a mag­i­cal week for me, as we had the final inspec­tion on our new home and all went well. Our clos­ing date is now for­mally set for Decem­ber 15th. I will keep you posted on how things go. To keep you cre­ative until next time…

Best Friend Gift Guide

Most of us enjoy the com­pany of many friends, but there is always that spe­cial friend in your life that you just can’t wait to hear from and you love to see as often as pos­si­ble. This is the per­son you call when times are tough and puts up with you, even when you are a pain. This is one gift that takes a lot of thought and has to be very special.

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

I tried to put together a set of really unique gifts that I would con­sider for my BFF. A few of them might not be amaz­ing enough to be the main gift, but maybe they could be paired with some­thing else. I just thought each of these items were fun and unique. Hope­fully these will inspire you and help you find the per­fect gift for that per­son you hold very dear.
