Even though it’s inevitable this year that the focus of gift-giving in my family is going to be on our one-year-old (and the only grandchild on both sides), I still want to take the opportunity to choose nice things for The Dude, my mom, and my in laws. Since the in laws are in Colorado and we’re traveling by plane to visit them, we have to choose our gifts wisely; we can either buy small things, or we can purchase online and have them shipped directly to Colorado, then wrap them when we get there. (We have done this the past couple of years, and it works out pretty well!)
I’ve also got a few things I’ve been eyeing for myself.
WHAT I’VE ASKED SANTA FOR
Handmade Linen Cocktail Napkins from Smith Handmade, $23 for a set of 6
I realized after busting out the “nice” napkins for Thanksgiving that my nice napkins are actually puke colored, perpetually wrinkled (yes, I tried ironing them), and non-matching. So I think it’s time for something new and cute! I am obsessed with the neon + neutral combo (still not sick of it).
