Christmas Gift Guide 2012
I did a Christmas gift guide last year, and the year before. They were quite popular posts, so I thought I’d do another one for THIS year! Turns out I’m not the only one who gets a little stumped when doing that last minute Christmas shopping!
So without further ado… here is my Christmas Gift Guide for 2012!
Nothing says girly-girl like this whimsical monogramed coffee/tea mug from Anthropology (I LOVE mine!):
This Jewelry Tree from Urban Outfitters (another one that I have and LOVE):
Stella and Dot Hope Bracelet: This is such a sweet and pretty bracelet! I actually got choked up when I saw Jenny post a link to this… something about angel wings makes me think of our first baby… plus the meaning of “hope” behind it – just. perfect.
Owl Mug – I have an unhealthy obsession with all things owl right now! Just bought this in silver for my home desk… umm hello mega cute pen holder:
Oxo Mini-beakers – these are GENIUS (for measuring small liquid amounts and pouring them – mess free!)… i’ve seen them popping up on other food blogs & am seriously wanting a set for myself!
This super cool Culinary Tools Print from Pop Chart Lab – they have numerous sweet food related prints (image from their website):
Mason Cocktail Shaker: mason jars have taken over by storm this year!! I love the Rustic Southern charm of them… this cocktail shaker is adorable!
Thermapen: I have heard AMAZING things about this thermometer… it’s speed & accuracy is unparalleled!
DIY Recipe Kitchen Towels (via spoonflower.com): I love love LOVE this DIY idea… taking an old handwritten recipe card (maybe one of your mother, grandmother, or even great grandmother’s handwriting). What a cool way to preserve a loved ones handwriting for forever!
Craft Coffee Subscription: Craft Coffee is all the rage these days… this company hand selects the best of the best and you can subscribe for 3, 6, or 12 months of freshly roasted coffee (sent each month!):
Nike Free Run+ 3: I got these this year and am OBSESSED with these sneakers!!!! SO comfortable… Plus I was able to snag a pair in HOT PINK!
Polar FT7: I was gifted this last Christmas and absolutely LOVE it. It monitor’s your heart rate during your workout and let’s you know your calorie burn when you are finished! I highly recommend this product!
Oh Gorgeous Carry-All Gym Bag – I’ve been lusting after this bag for a few years now…
Stand Up Paddle Board: If these weren’t so expensive, I could TOTALLY get down with one of these! It’s SUCH a great workout (WAY harder than it looks, ya’ll!), it gets you outdoors, and is FUN!
Spike Ball: Okay, I know I posted this last year, but I purchased this for hubs sometime this past year and can now say for FACT that any man in your life will LOVE. THIS. GAME. Plus, the people over at Spike Ball are GREAT to work with (I had to make some changes on my order and they were gems and took cake of it right away!)
Beer Tasting Flight Set: As ya’ll know, hubs is a home brewer (something that is becoming ever so popular!)… he would LOVE something like this!
Beer Bottle Opener/Hammer: talk about double duty… when your man is hot & sweaty working on a project, he doesn’t have to fumble around looking for a bottle opener to open his icy cold brew – he’ll have one in his tool belt at all times! 🙂
Big Green Egg: We have a knock-off version of this but hubs would LOVE the real-deal one day… you can grill/smoke/ and even BAKE in this bad boy. And trust me… most guys are PYROS & hubs loves sitting by this all day long smoking some meat!
Maverick BBQ Thermometer: this thing is super cool! It measures 2 temperatures at once… the meat temp and the actual grill chamber (making it the PERFECT thermometer for monitoring your smoking meat!):
