Gift Guide

HOST OR HOSTESS | 2014 gift guide 1. Scented Candles – 2. But first, Coffee Wall Print – 3. Amazeballs Drink Chillers – 4. Faceted Terrarium – 5. Atari – 6. Hexagonal Coasters – 7. Tabletop Calendar – 8. Bar Tool

A quick little guide, and the last one on my list. This is probably a good round-up for a secret santa gift too. A little token a gift to show your appreciation for the one throwing a part and hopefully useful, unique and general enough that they don’t already have it. And the Atari? I know what you’re thinking, probably the best gift on all of my lists. Happy Friday, and happy shopping – if you are shopping, that is.

I teamed up with Uncommon Goods for our second to last gift guide. Since they have the perfect gifts for all those secret Santa’s, people you just maybe don’t know that well but still really like, or people who you have no idea what the heck to get them. Uncommon Goods, (if you haven’t heard of them before) carries some of the most unusual items and handcrafted gifts out there, it’s the type of stuff you see and think “oh, well that’s pretty clever”. One third of those really cool items are made from recycled or up-cycled materials making sure never to harm people or animals, because they like to work in harmony with the environment.

I picked out my favorite items from their site that would be great for a secret Santa, maybe a bro or sister-in-law, a newish friend, a niece or a nephew that lives far away. Gifts for the hard to shop for, because you haven’t seen them in a while and you aren’t sure what they own now, because you sorta don’t know what they want but know what they like, those sorta gifts. I wanted to call this gift guide: uncommon gifts for uncommon people, because it’s basically like saying it’s a secret Santa gift guide but maybe slightly more offensive (even though I’d be joking) – so I side-barred it. If you have someone that’s hard to shop for, or an uncommon person to shop for, Uncommon Goods is a great place to start and end your search.

YOGI | 2014 gift guide 1.Mesh Insert Leggings (great for hot and regular heated yoga) - 2.Yogitoes Towel (great for hot yoga) - 3.Om Tee (great for before an after hot class, or a relaxed regular heat class) - 4.Sports Bra (light support, wear alone or under a tank or tee. Or a tank with a built in bra – this one is my ultimate fav ) - 5.Cork Block (great prop for all types of yoga) - 6.Passport To Prana (a great pass for newbies or anyone looking to try different styles/studios) - 7.Jade Yoga Mat (favorite, favorite – great for all types) - 8.Teeki Electric Night Legging (great for hot and regular, and just awesome) - 9.Niko Backpack (throw everything you need for a class in, probably a mat even) - 10.Vinyasa Scarf (great for before and after class as a scarf, blanket or a wrap) - 11.Yoga Strap (Excellent prop for all styles of yoga – expert and beginner) - 12.Yoga Mat Strap (my favorite way to carry my mat)

Well that was already a mouthful, so I’ll make the rest of this pretty short. Go for the good stuff when it comes to your favorite yoga lover (more eco and economical to buy things that last/aren’t disposable). If you’re shopping for your yoga newbie, well then start with a couple good basic items (like a mat, leggings and a tank or sports bra + tank combo) things she (or he, minus the bra and tank, obv) can use for any workout, forever. And because I know someone is gonna ask, why yogi and not yogini? Well, I’m not a fan of dudette, so yogini sorta falls into the same “not really doing it for me” category – just feels weird to say or be called it when dude and yogi work just fine.

LITTLE HER | 2014 gift guide 1.Swell Mini Bottle – 2.Little Fashion Designer Kit – 3.Dory Fantasmagory Book – 4.Slippers – 5.Goldie Box – 6.Easel – 7.Louise Loves Art Book – 8.My Magical Mermaid – 9.mini mioche x Heart + Habit Baseball Dress – 10.Bath Time Doll – 11.Apron and Cooking Set

That’s a whole lot of gift guides, all neatly lined up in a row. I know and I’m nearing the end, hopefully they have been a little helpful while you do your own shopping. This one is for the little lady, ages 3-6 – this was actually my toughest gift guide to put together. Mostly because I’m clueless as to what to buy wee Harlow this year, when we ask her what she wants this year, she just says: “I don’t know, girl stuff!”, and I’m all like “but what is this ‘girl stuff’ you speak of!?” Of course without question, she wants something (anything!) Frozen related (probably an Elsa or Anna doll), but we all know that’s about as easy to track down as the gold at the end of the rainbow – so it’s on my list, maybe just not this (above) list.

These are a few of the things I’m eyeing and think would be a great gift for most any little lady – also like the LITTLE HIM list, many items are good for him or her (it’s just fun to separate). Also hey look, STOCKING STUFFERS.

A quick sneak in before Black Friday ends, in-case you are into shopping today! Many of these items I’d also like for me, so ya know gifts that are great for him and you can also quietly enjoy (or steal). Have a great weekend, we don’t have much for plans this weekend which is how we like it when the weather gets cold – I’m hoping for at least one PJ and movie day.

LITTLE HIM | holiday 2014 gift guide 1.Star Wars Calendar – 2.Magic Set – 3.Perplexus (great to start with junior or original) – 4.Before You Grow Up Book – 5.Socks – 6.Simon Game – 7.Marble Maze – 8.Tic-Tac-Toe – 9.Mini Mioche x Heart + Habit Cowl Hoodie – 10.Baseball Pitcher – 11.The Book With No Pictures – 12.Over the Door Indoor Basketball Hoop – 13.Snap Circuit – 14.Chess Board

Mostly for the little guy in the 4-7 age group, since naturally that’s what I gravitate too. And when I say little HIM any of these things could also be great little her gifts, it’s just more fun to separate things – I know my kids both enjoy both classic him and her gifts. This is the list I’ll be pulling from for Kingston’s gifts, it’s a good thing he won’t be checking the blog anytime soon, or he’d be mighty confused when he got Santa laid his presents under the tree. More gift guides, still to come (you know, if you’re interested): LITTLE HER, HOST/HOSTESS, SECRET SANTA, HIM, YOGA (can’t leave it out), STOCKING STUFFERS, and maybe LITTLE THEM or FAMILY.

HER | holiday gift guide just for her 1. Astrology Calendar – 2.Shawl Funnel Scarf – 3.Quartz Necklace – 4.Waxed Canvas Bag – 5.Marbled Notepads – 6.Fedora – 7.Marble iPhone Case – 8.Crawling Earring – 9.Striped Oversized Tee – 10.Black Zipper Pouch – 11.Face Mask

The first or our gift guides, I have a few more lined up. I wanted to get them all posted prior to the crazy sale season (not to be confused with the actual holiday season) but sick kiddos take priority over everything and I’m running a tad late (on everything). So (enough with the excuses) here is my first round-up of gifts, great for the big HER in your life – friend, sister, cool teenager (IDK, I don’t know what’s hip with the kids these days), maybe mom, and probably you (just nonchalantly, show your partner). Happy Hump Day, and stay healthy – I’m off to wipe more boogers!
