Gift Guide: The Girls

I hope everyone who celebrated had a lovely Thanksgiving! I spent the weekend at my parents house and the only productive thing I managed to do the whole time was put together a week of gift guides for you. Other than that, I shopped online, watched movies and Gilmore Girls and enjoyed leftovers, and managed to come down with another cold, which I think will be my third this year and I'm pretty bummed about it.

Even though it's Cyber Monday, I'm pretty shopped out after the weekend. I think no fewer than half a dozen packages will be arriving at my house this week. It is a great time to take advantage of some good deals, some even better than they were on Friday.

But on to the gift guide! Naturally I like to start with the easiest, the girls, aka, stuff I have and like or have seen and want. I spotted the metallic purse in Target and even though it's not leather it's the cutest thing, and definitely looks like a Kate Spade bag, except it's $20. Those fur mittens seem like they'd be super warm, which I would love since my hands are perpetually cold, and if you haven't checked out the home section of H&M, it's time you.

  1. I ALMOST got that striped sweater last night but I was trying to be good and I didn't get it because ALL I DID WAS SHOP FOR MYSELF! Seriously, I have GOT to not keep doing that!

  2. Everything is so cute! I'm trying not to shop for myself but I have a feeling I might be bad today.... o.O

  3. The Rifle Paper calendar is one of my favourite things to buy myself each year, and to gift to friends, too - I'm not a huge Rifle Paper fan overall, but the travel illustrations are just so fun and they make for such a great conversation piece when people come over. And the copper elephant ring holder may just be the most adorable thing I've ever seen - so sweet! I made one big purchase, albeit on a very significant sale, during Black Friday, so that's it for me and shopping for the foreseeable future, except for gifts for others ;)

  4. That calendar is so cute!! Sounds like such a fun weekend! I spent it watching Gilmore Girls too :)


  5. Love this gift guide!! That lippy and that calendar might be my two favorites!

  6. I love all of these options! Sorry to hear about your cold, take lots of vitamin c. Anytime I feel something coming on I reach for emergenC which seems to help.

  7. Sounds like a productive weekend! Who's supposed to do a ton on a holiday? Love this guide, I may need to order that calendar for myself...
