As we all know, holiday gift giving is not limited to just our closest friends and family.  It also extends to all those who make our lives easier throughout the year – work assistants, manicurists, hairdressers, waxologists ;-), etc.

Coming in at #8 on my Countdown to Christmas list is a gift pick for all those who help take the stress out of everyday life.  These notebooks are the perfect little token of appreciation.

Who’s on your gratitude gift list this year?

Number 9 on my Countdown to Christmas list is ‘what to wear on Christmas Day’.  This year I’m planning to keep it casual so you can only imagine my delight when I found the perfect pair of AWESOME Christmas leggings.

Comfy and stylish, what more could a girl ask for (especially a girl that’s 8 months pregnant)?!?

How fun are those?!?

For #10 on my Countdown to Christmas list, I’m focusing on decor again, but this time we’re going outside… specifically, the front door which is where your house makes its first impression.

I’m smitten with this little vignette… the embellished pine-cone garland is gorgeous, and the red door is just perfection.  This definitely gets my holiday-chic stamp of approval.

If you haven’t already, this just might make you paint your front door red.

Coming in at #11 on my Countdown to Christmas list is a gift pick for… ME! I’ve had my eye on these kicks for a while now, and I think it’s time someone buy them for me :).

I mean, are these not the perfect combo of sporty and chic?!? I’m in love, oh and I wear size 7.5… (just a subtle hint for my husband) LOL!

Any chic kicks on your Christmas list?

25 Days of Christmas Countdown #12

In my book, Sundays are made for lounging… except during the holidays when they’re made, of course, for shopping. But that doesn’t mean I can’t fit in a little pampering, which is why I’m treating myself to a mani today.

And that, my friends, brings me to #12 on my Countdown to Christmas list… Christmas-inspired nail art.

Any fun Christmas nail art you’re planning to try this year?

It’s going to be a jam-packed weekend for me and my family… errands to run, Christmas shopping to do, and Christmas parties to attend, but the thing I’m most excited about is that we’re going to pick out our Christmas Tree today.  And this brings me to #13 on my Countdown to Christmas list.

Hope you have lots of fun plans for the weekend too!

In case you didn’t know, today is National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day, so I felt it only fitting to make the ugly christmas sweater #14 on my Countdown to Christmas List.

Ugly… but kinda cute, don’t you think?

One of the best things about the holidays is curling up on the coach with a cup of hot cocoa and warm & cozy blanket… which is why, #15 on my countdown to Christmas list is what I think is the coziest blanket in all the land.

Whether you’re treating yourself this holiday season or looking for a universal gift that will make anyone on your list happy, this chunky knit blanket is perfection!

Timing for some snuggling!

For many of us, a key way of getting into the holiday spirit involves watching some good-old Christmas movie classics.  Which brings me to #16 on my Countdown to Christmas list… my favorite holiday movie of all time… Home Alone!  It’s been a family tradition for the last 20+ years to watch Home Alone on Christmas Eve while wrapping presents (and maybe a couple of times before then too).  It always does the trick of keeping me motivated to wrap the plethora of presents resulting from my shopping addiction (and procrastination) :)

Number 17 on my Countdown to Christmas is another gift pick for the little ones… and this one’s for the girls.  I’m completely obsessed with this little bunny.  She’s so feminine and adorable; every little girl will fall in love at first sight.

How cute is she!?!
