Perfect Gifts For Her & Him

Phew, what a wirlwind week! I have so much going on right now (will tell you more next week!)  and I just need to get the holiday gifts off my chest. So, here is my last list. And once again, no dreams or pretending– everything on my list (s) are things I truly like and can see myself going for.

2011 Color-A-Month Daily Planner Box Set.

A chatty Ohh La La Recycled Felt Applique Pillow.

Back Lace Boot. (Gorgeous!).

Petal skirt.

Felt Peace Sign Wreath (14″ diameter).

Is it crazy to give holiday decor as gifts? I don’t know, but I wouldn’t mind being on the receiving end of this Burlap Sack Advent Calendar.

Recycled Glass Balloon Vases.

Amethyst tealight holder. (Very nice for a little bit of glamour!).

Love this vase from Tiffany. (Simple, beautiful and, to me, almost Swedish looking).

I always have a tough time finding perfect gifts for the Mr. I really had to dig deep on this one.  But here are a few ideas.

On at least 3 occassions I have been talking about framing old vinyl covers (for sentimental reasons as well as for great art). It turns out that Pottery Barn is now selling wood gallery frames made specifically to protect and display vintage records and album covers. (You need to take out the mat if you want to display the cover).

Leather IPad Cover.

Monogrammed leather journal (for the bedside table).

Monogrammed leather Catch-all (my hubby desperately needs one!).

Penguin water carbonator. (It should really be on MY list!) Perfect for those who want to eliminate the need to purchase soda/sparkling water.

Patagonia wind-proof gloves.

Ugg Men’s Shearling Slippers.

Professional immersion blender.

Stainless milk frother. (You will get a home made latte in seconds).

Belstaff Roadmaster Jacket. (Nice design and waterproof. Made in Italy).

And for him or her go shopping for some antique prints (E-bay is one good source). Beautiful and something that will never lose its value.

There you have it. My gift idea contribution. I hope you did not fall asleep!

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!

And make sure to visit next week when I have a fun thing to announce! (It will hopefully explain why I have been such a lousy blog friend lately).

    Lovely things – I especially love that Ooh La La pillow! :-)

    Hope everything is fine with you, it´s SO much snow here in my parts of Sweden right now and I hope it will hold til Christmas… Fingers crossed..! :-)

  • Greet says:

    What a list!! My husband also need a catch all box! Wonderful idea! Thank you Mon!
    Wish you a nice snowy weekend!

  • Charlotta says:

    Nope, I am wide awake. The ‘hers’ list did that for me! Have drooled over the same pillows. Will one ever tire of graphic prints?
    Also think the ‘book a month’ is fantastic! What a brilliant idea.
    The recycled glass bottles. I am determined to bring some into our home when we settle in Sweden. The ones you shared are stunning!

    Thanks for great tips my dear. Love it when you do.

    Hugs and have a relaxing weekend (if you can..)xx
