Holiday Gift Ideas 2014



Cheer Up  My loves, It's holiday season! Make life easy! Choosing your holiday gift list and buying gifts 
on-line is  a life saver! Many shops offer free shipping and it  saves on travel and stressful crowds and parking at the malls. 
Gift cards attached to a bottles of wine, or favorite bakery goodies are great for business gifts. Walk to  your local vendors for flowers, baked goods and wines!

Wrapping can be personalized. I like to stay with a theme.  Rough brown paper and white ribbon. Plaid papers.  All white paper with a color ribbon. For  small gifts I print my own paper.  My friend has blueprint  architectural paper. Creative personalization is up to you!  It's the thought that counts!

Here is a list of ideas,  click on the photo  or  store name and it brings you to the web site. Check back for additions to the list! 
Something I've been giving or years are   is pens  or rollerballs (I love to buy silver or black in either cross or another fine brand.
Mont Blanc is pricey! I found after many years my sons, relatives and friends  say they saved them or still use the pens. Another favorite is to send a Cheese cake from cheese factory web site! It's great for long distance dinner gifts to relatives.

Pottery Barn. Love the wine covers. And when there soft knitted throws go on sale I buy lots of them.
 West Elm  is another store that always has amazing gift books and throws that are perfect. Neiman Marcus date journals and gift department is high on my list.   
 Williams Sonoma is full of holiday gadgets. That is one store I love to visit and actually touch everything. On line now is 15% Discount.
Blue Tooth speakers are another great gift and not too expensive.
Try Best Buy for the sparkers and also exercise tracking bands from fit bit or jaw bones. 

Love to give new gadgets for the iPads and cell phones .   Little leather holders and travel items make smart gifts as well. Tumi has a classic selection of leather goods. As well as Coach

Local Flower and Gift shops have awesome Christmas or holiday trimmings and festive gifts. They ship anywhere!



HSN is the TV web site that has hundreds of
gift ideas.  Everything is shipped in time
for the holidays.

Winter Fashion



What to wear!  Winter is  a few weeks away and it  is already
so  brisk and cold!  Have you already worn your winter gear 
and possibly experimenting with your 2014 seasonal favorites!
I've seen touches of color in  classic coats , short furs with 
layers! Scarves long sweaters, leather, suedes and of course still warm as toast is the puffer jacket!  I've become attached  to fingerless gloves and keep them on at my computer.   Trade off between long scarves and just neck warmers!   Not feeling the overly bulky just yet.  However, when the temperature drops, fashion chic goes out the window!

Enjoy the day and welcome  in festive December!

Pretty in Plaids



 November is racing by!  It doesn't have to be only dark colors for winter months. Plaids make a casual and fun statement!   Worn with tights, jeans, white corduroys, mittens and fur.    Want to brighten it up a bit . Consider  plaids! Wraps, ponchos, blankets, are other
ways to wrap and keep warm in winter months.

Happy Thanksgiving Week!
