Holiday Gift Guide: For Him

Why are men so hard to shop for?  I feel like they usually just buy themselves what they want, so you have to get creative! Here are some of my no fail picks!

1. Basketball jersey poster- this whiskey one, or this beer one, are also cool!
2.  Cool sneakers.
3.  Golf watch- who knew something like this even exists?
4.  Some smart phone friendly gloves
5.  A membership to a whiskey of the month club! Some other cool memberships: bacon of the month, hot sauce of the month!
6.  Cast iron skillet cookbook.
7.  A shaving kit.
8.  An iGrill meat thermometer for the BBQ king. 
9.  A cozy hoodie.
10.  A subscription to Sports Illustrated.  Or if sports aren't your guys thing, maybe Popular Science, or GQ?
11.  My husband says these are like the Bentley of underwear
12.  Unique stocking stuffer- a knife that makes butter spreadable at any temperature.  I feel like guys love butter.

Holiday PJs

Ophelia's holiday jammies from last year.  

One of my favorite parts of the holidays is seeing my little bunny in her Christmas pjs.  I know it seems early, but the best ones sell out fast- so here are some of the cutest picks! I can't decide between these (with these matching ones for me?!!) or these for Ophelia this year.  

Seven // Eight // Nine

Cold Weather Maternity Favorites

Hat is from here, top is from here, jeans are these (highly recommend!) and boots are these.  

It's getting cold and all of my shirts are getting too short.  Maternity dressing in the cold weather is totally new to me.  I've found my favorite maternity leggings, and highly recommend these awesome maternity jeans.

I've also got this cozy sweatshirt, and these joggers for cold winter nights on my wishlist.
