Countdown to Christmas {Link Up} || Gifts for All ||

Morning, ladies! Happy last full week of 2015! Can you believe it? Christmas and 2016 is almost here, wow. For today's Countdown to Christmas I am sharing my take on a gift guide. Yes, I know there have already been a bazillion in the blog world, but I still wanted to share some gifts I enjoy and think others will enjoy as well.


I have become a Butter nail polish convert. The colors are seasonally perfect and they glide on like a dream. I swear I'm not just saying this for clicks, I LOVE the set I bought and am scouring for more on sale as we speak.

Our first Christmas together I bought Le Husband whiskey rocks and have been hard pressed to find another gift that impressed him as much as they did. He's a huge whiskey fan and will drink it neat if he doesn't have his whiskey stones. I love surprising him with great gifts and I promise if you get these for your hard liquor drinking guy he will LOVE them too.

After Amanda introduced me to Sugar Fresh lip glosses I've been suggesting them to all of my girlfriends. They come in great colors, go on smooth, aren't sticky and give you just the right amount of color. I keep three in my purse at all times [yes three] and always feel more put together with my lips done.

Coffee mugs are one of my favorite gifts to give, you can theme them to a personality and you know they will get daily or weekly use. Kate Spade has some of my favorites for my gal pals, she just makes you feel special with her designs, right?

For the workout friend in your life head to REI to snag some Thorlo running and workout socks. Yes, these socks are expensive but on sale they are straight up money. I don't run long distances in ANYTHING else than Thorlos. They are super cushy and don't feel sweaty after a long workout.

Sad as it is, phones and technology run our lives so when we can't update because of the cold we get cranky. Enter tech gloves for the techies and none techies. Personally I find the more expensive and often not as cute gloves work better than the super cute patterns. I have yet to find a pink pair that actually work, so I usually stick with a tried and true brand when giving gifts.

If you're looking for a gift that gives back, check out THIS POST by Lindsey.  She broke down a few that intrigue me and I think it's awesome to give a gift that also gives back to someone else. Thanks for sharing, girl!

Now it's your turn to link up your Christmas and holiday posts. Can't wait to read em!

  19. This is what I get for getting behind on my blog reading and skipping some days...missing a link up. :) I am going to go fix that right now! Tech gloves are a must have...and I think I agree that the non'cute' ones definitely work better. I need to remember those whiskey rocks for my brother's birthday. I think he would definitely make use of those! And the socks, too - he's an avid runner! Thanks for sharing!

  20. Great ideas! I love stocking up on gifts-especially coffee mugs-when they are on sale. I have a gift box that I use year round for my girls and family. It is a lifesaver.
    And the thorlo socks. The best. I love those:)

  29. Sugar Fresh --- I have heard SO many talk about it, and always want to try it but delay. It isn't sticky at all? Is it a subtle color?

  31. If your man is pushing you away and acting distant

    Or if the guy you’re after isn’t giving you the time of day...

    Then it’s time to pull out all the stops.

    Because 99% of the time, there is only 1 thing you can say to a standoffish guy that will grab him by the heartstrings-

    And get his blood pumping at just the thought of you.

    Insert subject line here and link it to: <=========> Your ex won’t be able to resist?

    Once you say this to him, or even send this simple phrase in a text message...

    It will flip his world upside down and you will suddenly find him chasing you-

    And even begging to be with you.

    Here’s what I’m talking about: <=========> Is your man hiding something? He may need your help?

    Thanks again.
