I love giving gifts and picking things out for the special people in my life. We’re not really exchanging gifts with extended family this year. Todd and I are getting some memorable gifts for Hudson’s first Christmas and we’re exchanging presents with each other.
But there are a few friends and other people in my life with whom I am exchanging gifts. So here is my guide for 2009 Christmas shopping.
Louis Vuitton: Art, Fashion, and Architecture - $53.55 on Amazon.com
This book is a whopping 400 pages. It features all of the Louis Vuitton collaborations with artists, designers, architects, and photographers. And look how pretty the book is! If I walked into a house and that book was sitting on the coffee table, I’d immediately pick it up.
A Blurb Book- starting prices range anywhere from $12.95 to $74.95
During these hard and uncertain economic times, quality is better than quantity. And what makes a more quality gift that one that comes from the heart? We made a Blurb book of Hudson’s birth day and will make one for every birthday he has until it becomes painfully obvious that he’s too old to have his mommy at his birthday parties.
I am obsessed with these candles. I have them all over my house now, thanks to my mom. I found them at The Paris Market and Brocante in Savannah while we were there for our anniversary. I think the best part is that the candles are actually made in Savannah. They are packaged so beautifully and every single one of the smells is delicious.
You can choose from scents including Savannah, Charleston, Gullah, High Cotton, Sea Grass, and Spanish Moss. They also have a Limited Edition New Orleans scent.
My personal favorite is High Cotton.
Sophie the Giraffe
Hudson loves his Sophie. She is the best teething toy around, but she’s also kind of a collector’s item. Sophie the Giraffe (not our particular Sophie) has been around since 1961 and she comes in an adorable box. Click here to read the story of Sophie.
Y’all know I love my MomAgenda. As the year ends and the new year approaches, all the ladies need a new calendar. I am lost without my MomAgenda. Again, if your gift recipient isn’t a mom, get her a MyAgenda. And if you don’t have a gift recipient that could use this, just get one for yourself. We can buy for ourselves at Christmas, right?
No? We can’t? Oh well.
Just click here to find out more about the MomAgenda and the MyAgenda.
And stay tuned. At least two of these items will be featured in my Favorite Things Giveaway later this month!
These are all items that I’m giving someone in my life this year. What are you giving the people you love?
(And I asked Todd for a specific pair of earrings, the Violet Hunter Wellies, and a Garmin.)
