It seems like every year no matter how well I think I’m ahead of the game, Christmas sneaks up on me and I’m scrambling last minute to buy gifts! My house is conveniently located across the street from a Francesca’s and I’d be lying if I didn’t say it has saved me on many occasions. I can always count on Francesca’s for some of my favorite gift items such as the oh so popular Volcano candles. I don’t know a single girl who does not squeal when they open up a Volcano candle gift! It’s a fool proof gift for all ages. It’s seriously the gift that knows no bounds!
One of my favorite parts about Francesca’s gift selection is that they have funny and unique gifts which is always a safe bet to give someone who is extremely hard to buy for or that already has everything else! Whether you are looking for the cozy lover, beauty lover, the girl who has everything or your sister who is impossible to buy for, I promise you there is something for everyone at Francesca’s! Just a heads up that today is the last day for FREE standard shipping before expedited shipping costs start to occur. You have until 11:59 CST!
*Thank you Francesca’s for sponsoring this post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.*
Dear Santa…. please just leave your credit card under the tree 😉 But if not then these things will do! My family has been hounding me for my Christmas list so I thought if I was rounding up my list for them I might as share with you ladies as well! Safe to say I’m loving leopard and cozy things. Surprise, surprise! What are you asking for? I’d love to hear!
Continuing on with the holiday gift guides, this one is for all of the coworkers, employees, bosses and business acquaintances. I put a lot of thought into these gifts to hopefully make your holiday shopping a lot easier! Click any of the images above in the collage or below in the swipe through carousels to shop the items!
1. Coffee Mug/Thermos/Tumbler
As cliche as it sounds, no guy or girl can pass up a new coffee mug, especially if they are a coffee lover! My personal favorites are the ones with funny sayings or my initial.
2. Work Bag
Most working ladies don’t want to carry a purse and laptop bag so a larger tote is usually a good compromise. Check out some of my favorites below.
3. Desk Necessities
From one 8-5er to the next, there are a few desk necessities that after being in the office for a few years I can’t live without. Some of these items include picture frames (let’s make it a little homey in the office!), ceramic tray (for rings and other jewelry that might get in the way of a keyboard), and a docking station (to charge phone/ipad).
For some insane reason that I will never understand, office buildings are always the equivalent of the North Pole temperature year round. I always keep a few different colored cardigans/wraps at work for this purpose.
5. Funny Gifts
And if you just have no idea what to get your coworker, you can’t go wrong with any of these!
Cozy gifts really do make the best gifts which is why this gift guide is always one of my favorites to make each year! Some of my go to gifts for ladies in my life who seem to have everything are always something on the cozy spectrum whether that be my favorite $10 candle(volcano knock off) and a bottle of wine or arguably the best cozy throw of all time.
Don’t forget that today is day 2 of 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways. If you are just joining, check out all of the details HERE and a running list of the giveaways HERE.
HO HO HO! Happy December 1st! Santa Shelbi is back for another year of 12 Days of Christmas giveaways. It’s time to kick off the holidays by giving back to all of you for following along with me all year and also to spread some love and Christmas cheer!
A couple of weeks ago my girls and I got together for a pajama party which is code for photoshoots and of course breaks for Momma’s hot chocolate (recipe HERE)! I warned you that a lot of these cute sets would sell out on Black Friday and unfortunately I was right. I’m sad to report there are a few items pictured that are no longer in stock. That being said, there are still quite a few cute ones in stock and on major sale. My family always does matching pajamas every Christmas Eve and it’s one of my favorite family traditions and makes for some cute photos too (always a plus!). I linked even more holiday pajamas and cozy items HERE.
Don’t forget there will be 12 straight days of giveaways starting today on my Instagram and running through the 12th! All winners will be announced HERE on the 13th.
