Every year, I like to share a simple gift guide. It's really just a fun way for me to round-up some of the products we plan to give each other and/or have used and loved recently. Hopefully you see something that might work for someone on your list this year...
Harry Potter Illustrated / in my head this book works for anyone aged 0-125, but Santa will be bringing it to Ellerie this year. It just arrived Thursday and oh man, it's so beautiful. I cannot wait for the girls to be able to really read and enjoy it. I can't imagine how they will print all seven (some of the books are so long) but I would love for our family to collect them all.
Pinhole Press photo calendars / these have already been mentioned on the blog many times, but they deserve it. Hands down the best grandparent gift. My parents always cut it up at the end of the year to frame the photos so this really is the gift that keeps on giving.
toddler stringing bead set / this set is awesome though still a bit advanced for Ellerie. I can tell that we are thisclose to enjoying it. She's also really loving safety scissors and happily cuts paper for 20 minutes (!!)
giant blanket scarf / okay so this I don't own or plan to buy, but I'm obsessed. I actually saw it on a girl at a coffee shop and it looked great (she told me the etsy shop name). I can't justify it given that we hardly have seasons and I already own 4 or 5 scarves, but if you live in a colder climate, please enjoy or gift this for me.
ceramic coffee dripper / Paul is taking his coffee brewing to the next level and wants to try single cup pour-over on the weekends. I am all for it and really just grateful he makes the coffee. Also, we love coffee subscriptions as gifts and Pony Brand Coffee makes great stuff.
The Crafter's Box subscription / this new subscription club was just launched by my friend Morgan and I had the pleasure of contributing to one of the boxes that will be available this winter. It's the perfect gift for my crafty sister-in-law and I am so excited to dig into the first box, a weaving kit and class taught by Maryanne Moodie, as soon as I find a spare moment.
a craft beer subscription / and on the other side of the coin, the perfect gift for my cool brother. Or for Paul. Or for me.
2016 Get To Work Book / for the planner, list-maker, dreamer, doer, wants-to-get-it-done-er in your life. I'd be a complete failure of a business owner if I didn't at least mention it here on the blog during the holiday season. ;)
button-up PJs (in many cute patterns) / I had no idea, but button up PJs might be the ideal item of clothing for the nursing mama in the cold(er) months. With my summer baby I could get away with just a nightgown but I was freezing sitting in my chair to feed in the middle of the night this time around. Loving these.
rewinded candles / I appreciate how long the burn time is and we always get compliments on ours. The scent is perfectly subtle.
ps: here's the 2014 and 2013 gift guide. I'm still a fan of (and even more miraculously we still use!) everything on those lists with the exception of the tripod because I only use my iPhone 5 for photos these days.
