You bb’s know I love a gift guide! Valentine’s Day is coming up quick and while I def don’t think you need to go cray with the gifts, it’s always nice to get your loved ones a lil somethin’ sweet. Eddie and I seem to do something different every year on v-day! Sometimes we’ve stayed in, other times we’ve gone out to nice dinners - but truth is I think there’s a lot of pressure and expectations that are put onto this one day. So we prefer to just have fun and take it easy, no matter what we do! I rounded up a bunch of cutie patootie lil prezzies that are sure to put a smile on the faces of those you love. Whether you’re going all out for Galentine’s day with your girls, hanging with fam, or planning a date night with your partner - I gotchu covered.Read More
I just love gift-giving. In a way it’s a bit selfish of me, because it enables me to do some major shopping minus the guilt that usually comes with buying goodies for myself. No guilt here when it comes to givin prezzies! I had so much fun putting together each of these lil gift guides for the special people on your list. I was really picky with it and only chose things that I would want for myself (kekeke), or already am/would purchase for my family and friends. Hope you enjoy and maybe find some treasures you hadn’t thought to gift before! Happy shopping, bb’s.Read More
Don't get me wrong, I loveee shopping for myself - who the heck doesn't? But holiday shopping for other people is my absolute fave. When you find that one special prezzie that you know your loved one is gonna go gaga over - isn't that just the best feeling?! I look forward to doing my gift hunting every year, and always from the comfort of my own home - no crazy malls and Black Friday lines for me plz. So I've rounded up the biggest baddest boho gift guide for all those free spirited, plant loving, decor obsessed babes in your life. This also doubles as my own personal Christmas list, because tbh I want every single thing on here - some things I even already own! Keep scrolling for alllll the treasures, and happy shopping!Read More
The Stylish Guy
Eddie and I are both earth signs (Taurus & Capricorn - yep, a stubborn bull and an equally stubborn goat!) - take one look inside our home and you can tell. We love all things planty and wooden, so when I first laid eyes on JORD Wood Watches, I instantly fell in love. They really are works of art! Every piece is special looking and one of a kind. The one I chose for Eddie is the Chronograph in Walnut & Jet Black from the JORD Conway series. I actually gasped when I opened the box - it's even more beautiful in person than it is in pictures! I absolutely love how the earthy walnut wood looks combined with the jet black watch face - so sleek and stylish. Plus, being a chronograph it also functions as a stop watch in addition to a traditional display watch. Perfect for all of Eddie's athletic endeavors.
I also loved the gorgeous wooden box the watch came in - it really makes a beautiful gift I think any guy would be thrilled to receive. I know mine was! Eddie loves that not only is it a super unique and very cool looking watch, it can be worn with just about any outfit - casual or formal.
Added bonus, not only is JORD having a crazy awesome Black Friday Sale, they also have an amazing giveaway going on right now! You can get a free $25 e-gift card automatically just for entering HERE. Doesn't get any easier than that! Meanwhile, I'll be browsing through the JORD women's watches dropping hints for Eddie like there's no tomorrow...

The Comic Book Fan
This is an awesome two for one gift - if the guy on your list loves Star Wars or comics or BOTH then this is the perfect prezzie for them! Star Wars: The Original Marvel Years Omnibus is a beautiful collection of the original Marvel Comics' Star Wars series from the '80's. There's lots of Star Wars comics out there but Marvel published the very first, so you know it's legit. Being a Star Wars fan myself, it's really cool to see the characters we all know and love from the movies in comic book form.
It's a huge book so it makes a super nice gift - there's over 40 issues in it! I got Eddie Volume 2 since Boba Fett is on the cover and that's one of his favorite characters, but I believe there's 3 volumes total if you want to go all out with your gift giving this year.
The Cool Guy
You really can't go wrong with a pair of Ray Bans. Even if someone already has a pair, who doesn't like to have sunglasses in a few different styles? I love the cool, subtle tortoise frames on Eddie's pair. They're the Justin Classic series - similar to the iconic Wayfarer sunglasses but with slightly larger rectangle lenses and a rubberized frame finish. Perfect for that cool guy on your holiday gift list.
The Music Lover
Music is always a great holiday gift. Whether the guy you're shopping for is an avid record enthusiast or just getting started building his collection, vinyl is a really fun present to receive.
If your guy doesn't have a record player, that's an amazing gift to give as well! I bought our Crosley Turntable for Eddie a couple years ago - I think it's a great starter record player, it's affordable and sounds good when plugged into an external speaker system.
Eddie and I love a lot of the same music, so even though these records (Ty Segall, Wavves, Fleet Foxes, and Modest Mouse) were technically a gift for him, they were pretty much a gift for me as well hahaha woops! Win-win in my book.
The Cocktail Enthusiast
This is my brother's rad bar and as you can tell, he falls under the cocktail enthusiast category. He's always the bartender at every get-together and loves trying out different drinks, so I thought these Mixology Dice would be a fun gift for him. The dice come in a recycled wine bottle tumbler that's cut and polished to perfection. It also includes an instruction booklet that shows you which dice to roll to make different types of traditional drinks, as well as what ratios of ingredients to use, and mixing instructions.
Bartending books also make a super fun gift! The Drunken Botanist and The Curious Bartender are both really gorgeous ones with drink recipes and great history lessons on your favorite cocktails inside. Get the guy on your gift list a bottle or two of his favorite booze combined with these books or mixology dice and you'll get maaaajor brownie points - or at least a couple delicious cocktails as a thank you!
