Holiday Gift Guide (aka, My Wish List)

A 'gift-guide' is the perfect blog tool to put your own gift wish list together.  I find that I buy a lot more stuff for myself during this time of year, while I'm shopping for others.  The sales, the festive 'treat yo self' atmosphere of the holidays just makes me cave.  So, without further ado, here's my Christmas wish list not really disguised as a gift guide!  Maybe I'll just forward this along to my husband...

Yoga Towel/Mat I really could use a yoga towel.  For now, when I go to hot yoga, I line my mat with a beach towel.  It works just fine, but it'd be lovely to have a spiffy little number that fits my mat.

Jaybird Headphones My husband just gifted himself a pair of these Bluetooth headphones and now I'm kinda jealous.  See, this is why we never get anything to put under the tree - we buy ourselves gifts all the time!

Oiselle Gift Card  Speaking of buying ourselves gifts all the time...  Having a gift card would make giving myself gifts much easier.  The Wazelle long sleeve, pictured above, has been on my list of 'gifts to buy myself' for awhile.

Toms Sunglasses My cheap blue Target wayfarers will always be my go-to for running.  But, I've had my current pair of 'nice' sunglasses for at least five years and would love to update them with these super awesome Toms.  When I'm not running, I'm a fan of aviators, and I love the idea of plastic framed ones.

Clarisonic Mia 2 Sonic Skin Cleansing System, Lavender

Clarisonic Mia This thing has been around forever, and I have always kind of wanted one.  But, I just can't bring myself to spend my own money on it.  Will someone buy it for me?

Cable Knit Pillows Our couch pillows are boring/match the cushions and I think these pillows look so cozy.  The Paprika color would totally punch up our couch and be festive for the holidays.

Long 'Jane' PJs This is another item I can't bring to buy for myself, 'I have enough serviceable pajamas, etc.'  But they're so cuuuuuute!  I'll take a size small in the dark grey, please and thank you.

Elago iPhone Case I took a spill on a recent run and totally scuffed up my favorite iPhone case.  This one held up nicely and I will most likely gift myself another soon, as it's not terribly expensive.  Maybe I'll even change up the gold/turquoise one for indigo or rose this time...

Cards Against Humanity Games are such a fun gift for the holidays, and I've yet to play this one.  I'm thinking it'd be good for when we're all camping out for Ragnar Trail...

One Line a Day, Five Year Memory Book If you are new here, you might not know how this book speaks to me.  I'm a big fan of daily tasks and routine.  What a cool way to keep a journal.

Tastes of Chicago Ohhhhh yeah.  Getting a package from any of the vendors through this service would be heavenly.  *cough* We like the Lou's pizza packs and Portillos hot dogs the best. *cough*

AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker with Bonus 350 Micro Filters

Aeropress I do love my cheap Target espresso machine.  But, since it was cheap, I'd be willing to cheat on it and try the latest craze in coffee.

Gold Pyramid Studded Cuff Bracelet It's the time of year again for Dot Dollars and I'm tempted to get this for myself...

'Elle' Drop Earrings

Kendra Scott Earrings So cute, right?  I've yet to cave to my own pair of Kendra Scott earrings.

Kate Spade Small Stud Earrings However, I DO have a pair of these babies - and I want MORE.  I have them in yellow (which is a deceptively neutral color that goes with almost everything) and I wear them all. the. time.  I think I need to get them in turquoise...

Tieks in Lemon Patent Speaking of neutral yellow...  One day I would like to see what all the fuss is about with Tieks.  And I would love them in this lovely, sunshine-y, happy yellow.  

Had to go out with a bang, eh? Happy shopping holidays to you - I hope you get everything on YOUR list!


  1. I've recently become obsessed with Stella & Dot. So many cute things! I highly recommend the Wazzelle LS too.
