Is it just me, or can we start our holiday season early this year? I'm already anxious to set-up my Christmas tree and hang the twinkly lights on the hedges. That said, I guess it's time to start my holiday shopping list. This year, my theme is C O Z Y. Since we've been spending more time in our home lately, I decided to dedicate my shopping guide to adding some warmth and happiness to our everyday lives. Plus, some playful and light-hearted gifts to brighten up your days. Enjoy and happy holiday shopping to you all!
Winter Book Series
Not only is this the best holiday/winter book series to keep you company this season, it's also a special signed collection from the Nantucket Book Store. For anyone that loves romance, drama, and Nantucket Christmas...this is a wonderful and personal gift to give.
cozy Lake Sweaters
Give the gift of nostalgia with a Lake Minnetonka or a Gull Lake sweater by Ellsworth & Ivey. Watch out for my kids line coming in late November! Available in my Minnetucket shop.
For The Rustic Chef
This year, one of my favorite chefs collaborated with Etsy and launched a rustic-chic line of cooking and baking goods. The Half Baked Harvest collection is great for the cook in your family, here are some of my favorite pieces:
The cutest linen apron that is so adorable. Crossback Apron - $85
Want to bake your gifts this year? And why not have great packaging while you're at it! Deluxe Cookie Boxes (Set of 3) - $30
Beautify someone's cooking space with this gorgeous cookbook (or tablet) holder.
Holiday Wine Sampler
It's like an Advent Calendar for wine! This fun wine sampler includes 12 mini bottles of wines and spritzers. Give the gift of clean wine...and you can even gift yourself :)
His & Hers Winter Moccasins
I love Minnetonka Moccasins, they are the warmest and coziest foot apparel I own! Minnesotans can truly appreciate this holiday gift, especially on the coldest of winter days. Here are a couple of classics:
Best Blanket Ever
I got my first Chappy Wrap this year, and it's the only blanket I use now! I love that it's so versatile--perfect for the boat, beach, or just snuggling on the sofa. They have great prints, but I love this winter green plaid for winter. Add a luxe hot coco mix to your gift to complete.
luxe Movie Night Accessories
Winter weekends are looking great for movie nights. Give the gift to make these nights extra special and fun with some extravagant appliances. Pairing a unique culinary item is a great way to wrap up these gifts. Yummy!
There's nothing better than walking into a cozy home that has a mulled cider candle burning on a cold winter night. I found Barbara's candles years ago, and they're the only candles I burn at my house. She has the best variety of fragrances that will keep your home smelling amazing all the time. And I love her jars. *If you're local, you can stop by and pick them up!*
My holiday favorites include : Mulled Cider, Warm Spice, and Vanilla Bean. All 3 would make for a fantastic gift set.
I hope you've enjoyed my C O Z Y gifting ideas. I can't wait to have my shopping list checked off, so I can start planning my holiday cooking and baking! Happy shopping and take care this season.
