Holiday Gift Guides 2012

Clockwise (L to R): Anchor Scarf, Acorn Necklace, Personlized Towels, Preggo Coat, Chalkboard Piggy Bank, Tea Pot, Lamp Base

Holiday shopping have you stumped?  I'm here to help.  Being a whiz at online shopping also happens to make me a fantastic gift giver.  I am paying it forward this week and sharing my favorite gifts for the holiday.  Each day will be a slew of gifts for you to ogle over.  Get excited!  It's going to be fabulous.

What better way to start, then with a few of my favorite gifts on MY holiday wish list.  As they say, the best gift to give someone else, is a gift you would love for yourself.  This statement only works if you and your friend both love anchor printed clothing... I digress... Enjoy!

J Crew Anchor Scarf - It's the most Melanie scarf in all the land!  Is it too much if I wear it with my anchor printed rain boots?!  I think it's a must for any nautical loving cutie such as myself.

Acorn Necklace - This necklace has so much charm.  It's a little glittery, a little fall and isn't too overwhelming.  It represents everything I'm loving from this season.  What a great gift for a friend who loves fall as much as you!

Monogrammed Towels - I have always wanted towels with my new initials on them.   Not sure why, but nothing says "Congrats!  You are officially married and adults!" like towels with your initials on them. 

Hatch Collection Coat - Ok, so being Pregnant in the winter is WAY better than the summer (from what I hear).  Better to get to bundle up instead of sweat to death with swollen ankles right?  While I see this point, good winter coats are really hard to come by.  I've been coveting this Hatch Collection Coat for quite some time.  It's chic and stylish but still leaves room for a growing bump.

Chalkboard Piggy Bank - I have been loving piggy banks this year!  I'm toying with the idea of creating a collection for my baby.  This one is extra sweet because you can right notes on it!  Is it too early to write "Save for College" on it?

Tea Pot - I'm the tea drinker of the bunch, while the hubs drinks coffee and loves to make cappuccinos.  I just can't get enough of this beautiful C Wonder Tea Pot that makes tea for one.  It's a gift that any tea drinker will cherish.

Lamp Base - Ummm this lamp is from Land of Nod!  That's right!  It's a children's lamp.  I'm obsessed and I don't care if it goes in the nursery, office, bedroom or living room.  I want it in my life!

I can't tell you how stoked I am to spread the holiday cheer this week!  Here is to a wonderful week of gift giving inspiration!
