Christmas: A Few of My Favorite Things

My husbands parent's surprised us with one of our favorite photos from the wedding printed on metal!

My aunt made these adorable little gumdrop trees for us.

How cute is this wine bottle sweater - and look, it comes with a matching hat too!

A set of festive wine glasses from my sister in law.

Cute cookbook holder that I desperately needed because 2 of my favorite cookbooks are soft cover and they are impossible to keep open.

Candy Cane Martini Tea Light Holder

Philosophy Snow Angel Gift Set, Spa Gift Certificate, Hand Made Coasters, Moisturing Beauty Bar.

Part of mine and my husband's gift was our trip to New York a few weeks ago but we needed something to put under the tree too. My husband totally surprised me with a gift certificate to go ice skating. I've been trying to get him to go with me for years now with no success so it came as a complete surprise that this year he is willing to give it a go! He also got me a remote car starter which will be great for this time of year. No more scraping the car off when it's 0 degrees outside.  


  1. Sweeeeeeet gifts (including the trip to NYC)/

    I have one of those wine bottle sweaters and hat!! My grandparents gave all the grandkids a bottle one year with those - totally adorable.

    Amazing pic of you and your hubs on metal. What a GREAT idea.

  2. The picture is beautiful-what a wonderful gift! And so jealous of your coupon for ice skating. My boyfriend has been playing hockey all his wife, and I still have yet to get him to take me/teach me how to ice skate. So thoughtful.

  6. Awww. I love the photo of you two. Such a great gift. :) My family bought me a remote starter for my car 2 years ago and don't know what I'd do without it. It's definitely well worth the money!
