Favorite Things Gift Guide

Good Tuesday morning friends. I hope y’all had a great weekend, I’m still over here trying to figure out where it went!! Today on the blog I wanted to share some of my favorite products that are perfect for gift giving this holiday season. Whether you’re looking for a stocking stuffer, a personalized gift for a loved one, something for the teen in your life or a hostess gift, I think I have you covered!


The first super cute gift I want to share with y’all is this adorable mug made by Kelly at Kelly Castle Creations. You can find all of her available items here and also follow along on Instagram here.


Kelly has so many super cute mugs available and she also takes custom orders. Which is how this mug was born! Kelly is a super sweet gal and one of her cute mugs would be the perfect gift for anyone on your Christmas list! Add a bag of coffee for the coffee lover on your list and maybe a Starbucks gift card, or if its tea they love simply add a cute tin full of their favorite teas and maybe a tea-pot. The possibilities are endless with this piece and at $16 a mug its perfect for the budget!!!

The second item on my list is a gorgeous personalized cutting board made by Our Board Boutique. You can find all of their beautiful pieces here and also follow along on Instagram here. img_2711img_2397

I absolutely love our personalized cutting board from Our Board Boutique and the family behind the business. This little business is run by a daughter duo and their father! Not only do they engrave these gorgeous cutting boards but they can engrave just about anything. So if you are looking for a personalized item this is almost a one stop shop. This cutting board would make the perfect gift for a new home owner, newly married couple, the in-laws… I mean honestly personalized items are perfect for everyone. Gift it with some cheese and a bottle of wine and you have a beautiful gift. Another budget friendly purchase at $17.50

While we are on the subject of personalized items I have another one to share and it may just go perfectly with one or both of the items I have already shared this morning. Personalized utensils!! These personalized utensils are made by Chloe at Sweet Mint Handmade. You can find her shop here and also follow along here on Instagram.img_2648img_2686

I just love the big spoon little spoon set that the Mr. and I have. It’s a sweet little reminder to us and having them on our coffee bar makes me smile each morning. These spoons would make a cute add-on, personalized piece to any gift. I love the idea of gifting one of Kelly’s mugs and a spoon. Chloe uses almost every utensil from the drawer so even a personalized cheese knife along with the personalized cutting board would make an awesome gift!!  A funny saying for your teen, wedding date for the newlyweds, coffee or tea-spoon for the hot beverage lover. I truly believe you can never go wrong with a personalized gift and at $14 you can get everyone on your list their own personalized spoon!! 😉

Next up, I have some super cute cell phone cases to share with you guys!! These cases are made by a young woman named Madison. She designs the cases herself and I must say, they are super fun! You can find all of Madison’s creations here and also follow along with her shop on Instagram here.


The Madison cases I have are the two above, the monogrammed shiplap and the black and red plaid. I love both of these cases, they’re light, durable and so fun! These cases would be perfect for the teenager, sibling or even yourself. Who says Santa can’t drop one in your stocking?? Madison is super creative with her creations and I love having a fun case on my phone. Plus her prices are fantastic, at $23 you can have a super cute case for your phone as well!

My last favorite thing for today are candles. These candles are hand poured by Shannon at Greyden Candle Co. You can search her scents here and follow along on Instagram here.



When it comes to candles I am VERY picky! Due to my allergies there are certain candles/scents that I can not burn. I have tried 5 of Shannon’s scents so far and I have to say, I have LOVED every single one!! Snatch these up for stocking stuffers, hostess gifts or a little add-on to a gift you already have but need another little something to go along with it! I highly recommend Christmastime, Gingerbread House, Ginger Apple + Sandalwood, Under the Mistletoe and Cranberry Spice! These 8oz candles are $14 each, again super budget friendly!!

I hope you’ve all enjoyed reading about some of my favorite things today and I hope that its given you some great gift ideas! Not only do these items make perfect Christmas gifts, they also make perfect all year gifts!! Birthdays, anniversary, Valentine’s day, Wedding gift, graduation, New home owner.. I mean the list goes on doesn’t it? I hope you all take some time to visit these shops and give them a follow if you are on Instagram! So many amazing makers out there and I’m a major sucker for handmade items!
