Christmas 2010 is long gone by now, but all this snow we’re getting is making me want to revisit the holiday season. We had a pretty exciting holiday as usual, with a lot of fun family time, and a few pretty superb gifts. If you happen to have to buy another gift for someone special anytime soon, these are our favorite gifts of the holiday season. Some are silly, some are useful, but all of them made us smile extra big on Christmas morning.
Ah, my beloved wayfarers. As you know, I’ve coveted these for quite some time on my sidebar and my dear husband finally gave into my obsession. I felt that maybe these were a bit too “hipster” for me, but my father (the optometrist) reassured me by saying I made a good choice with such a classic design. Yeah, classic. Not hipster. I knew I loved these frames for a reason. Oh, and on a sidenote, I also love my 50mm 1.8 lens that I haven’t used in forever. Just check out how dreamy this picture is! I’m hoping Ray Ban begs me to use it in their next ad campaign.
My second favorite gift was this dress. Get it. Now.
(I couldn’t take a picture of it because it was being washed. From me wearing the heck out of it). I confess: my coworker bought this dress first, and I immediately wanted it. Apparently I’ve had some unhealthy obsessions with clothing items this year, but that’s another topic. I may have mentioned this dress to a certain mother-in-law and what do you know? Santa Claus brought it to me. It’s the most comfortable, most flattering dress in all of existence and you should buy it immediately. Oh, and it comes in petite too.
Why yes, you read that correctly. The little bottle of magic says Poo-pourri. Apparently I don’t have a filter when it comes to this blog. My mom purchased this perfect little stocking stuffer for all of the men in the family and I send my immense gratitude her way today. In the words of my father “this stuff really works”. Enough said. Sidenote: when you start to type “poo” into google, Poo-pourri is the first thing that pops up. Thank goodness.
This is a gift that I actually purchased for my husband, but it won me the award of “best. gift. ever.” so I figured I would share. My good friend and I were talking before Christmas about what I should get my husband (ie. typical guy who likes electronics, music, etc) and she suggested these awesome headphones. She’s in the music biz, so I figured her recommendation was more than adequate. Turns out, it was perfect. Once my husband listened to these headphones for 20 seconds, he was in love. Mushy, gushy, electronic love. I may have made a big mistake with this purchase, actually. Drat.
