the holiday gift guide

Can you believe it’s that time already?! I feel like some people start holiday shopping as early as the summer up to September/October, but it’s definitely in full swing by November. I love getting dressed in a cozy vest and jeans, buying a hot chocolate or caramel apple cider from Starbucks, then walking around my favorite shopping streets and areas. I swear, the process of shopping for the gifts is half the fun.

Because I’m not all about the consumerist culture of the holidays, I think I’ll only be sharing one holiday gift guide this year. Everything on this page is sectioned into categories by price and are all under $150. My gift giving philosophy is to give people special things that they may have had their eye on, but never actually bought for themselves. There are certain things like this for me that come to mind such as silk pillowcases and certain accessories. I’d love to have them, but always have something else come first. Those kinds of things make perfect gifts!

So, get your cup of hot chocolate and happy shopping!
