Christmas // The Gifts

Friday, December 28, 2012

My family usually keeps it pretty simple as far as gifts go, but my mom decided to go all out this year. I had been talking about ordering a nespresso pixie for a while, and she ordered one for me! I gave up lattes for iced Americanos when I started the paleo challenge, and then became addicted to said Americanos. Buying an iced coffee during the winter in Chicago seemed so irrational, and it was getting pretty expensive which in the need for a nespresso. Thanks, mom!

The colorblock shell and sequined top are on sale at J. Crew and were each an early Christmas gift.

Sparkly hair ties, neon pink J. Crew socks (now sold out online), and a disco ball ornament from Alaina.

J. Crew Glittens. Mine are not cashmere, but these are the only ones available online.

Gold mouse pad, Jonathan Adler scarf (for Buddy), and signed Jonathan Adler book from my sis.

Faux fur throw from Restoration Hardware (currently on sale).

What was your favorite gift this year?


  1. Oooo you got some nice stuff this year!! I'm so jealous about the espresso machine!! =)

    I have to check out those glittens...they look so pretty and I love that you can cover your fingers or not!

    Glad to hear you had a great Christmas! =)

    Happy Friday!

  3. Fabulous presents Danielle. This year, my husband and I didn't give each other presents on Christmas, we had our Christmas a few weeks earlier when we treated ourselves to Minibar in DC. Lola did get a new Restoration Hardware blanket, she loves the luxury of it.

  4. I love that throw! It looks so favorite part of Christmas was watching my family open their gifts! I love giving gifts so much...thankfully, they loved everything I picked out (even the clothes, which are risky!), but my favorite gift I received was definitely my new cat eye sunglasses! Love them! xo Lacey

  8. Merry Christmas Danielle! I got the striped tee for myself (it was on sale!) and the throw as well, isn't it the softest thing ever?

  9. Love that Nespresso machine! I would LOVE to try one. My hubs surprised me with new Ugg moccasins in gray-- they are LOVELY. AND we are going to Mexico in 2 weeks with NO kids. :)
