If you are anything like me (Sydney), you just realized that you have less than 2 WEEKS until Christmas and you still have tons of gifts to buy! Where did 2017 go?! Of course, I’ve had months to shop and prepare, but instead I’m ordering last minute and rush shipping everything. I’ll be using our 2017 gift guide to knock a couple of things off my list (slash I’ve already ordered a few of these things for myself – Merry Christmas to me!). It’s broken out by category to make it easy to shop – For Him, For Her, For Baby, For Toddler, For Kids, and Stocking Stuffers Under $25.
Though you couldn’t go wrong with any of the items on these lists, I’ve highlighted a couple of my favorite items I will be buying this next week!
The Nest Learning Thermostat is one of my favorite things we have in our house. You can change and monitor the temperature on your phone through the Nest app. So, if you are out-of-town, you can turn the air down and save energy and then when you are headed home, you can set it to the perfect temperature. My husband and I always battle about the temp (I always think it’s too cold and he always thinks it’s too hot) so this also a good way you can change it without the other person noticing… I’m joking… kind of. We love our Nest thermostat and it is a great gift that any man would love!
This Barefoot Dreams ‘In the Wild’ blanket is by far my favorite blanket I own. Like all Barefoot Dreams products, this blanket is so soft and cozy. Since it is finally cold in Houston, I have been cuddling up with it by the fireplace because it is big but lightweight. The only thing that would make snuggling under this blanket better would be to have my favorite Jo Malone candle lit next to me (and a glass of bubbly in my hand).
A tradition in my family is to open up one present on Christmas Eve, and it is always pajamas. I look forward to opening up my new pjs to wear for Christmas Day and I am excited to continue this tradition with Camden this year! I am going to order this Beaufort Bonnet Knox’s Night Night onesie for him. I love everything by Beaufort Bonnet because they use high quality fabrics and they have the cutest prints.
Stocking Stuffers Under $25
I bought this Peter Thomas Roth ‘Meet Your Mask’ set for my husband to put in my stocking… subtle, huh? It includes 6 of PTR’s most popular masks. I have been wanting to buy a larger version of one of these, so this way I can test them all and see which one I like best for my skin type. Since I already know it’s in my stocking, it’s hard for me to not walk downstairs and grab it to use right now… but I’ll wait for the 25th!
The holidays can be stressful and overwhelming, but hopefully this gift guide will help alleviate some of the pressure because your gifts are just a click away. The holidays are a very special time and I hope you all enjoy sweet time with your family and remember the real reason for this season. Merry Christmas! xo Sydney
