2017 Gift Guide - my favorite things

I'm excited to bring you my next gift guide of the season! You know how Oprah did a favorite things episode every winter? Well this is my favorite things post! It's so easy to get carried away by what's new and popular when making these guides that I think we sometimes forget the importance of sharing things we love. Gifting favorite things is such a great idea because you know exactly what you're gifting.

Kendra Scott necklace - I love the simplicity of Kendra Scott jewelry. I actually own this necklace in two colors and it's perfect. It's small enough to wear every day but larger than the Elsa. Plus it's an old style and on sale!

Evelyn Henson Artwork - While I don't own this exact print I do own a few of Evelyn's pieces. They're all bright and fun to make a great addition to your gallery wall. Her map prints are especially fun and would make a great gift for anyone on your list.

Beanboots - I know bean boots are so basic white girl, but there's a reason they're so popular. They have great traction for walking on the icy ground, but are also perfect for chilly rainy days in the south. I actually own this exact pair and love the uniqueness of the navy color.

heated blanket - This may be my favorite thing ever. I brought one on Black Friday last year it is hands down the best purchase I've ever made. There are a variety of prints so this is a great gift for anyone on your list, and at less than $25 you can afford to get one for yourself too!

Smartwool socks - I had never heard of Smartwool until I moved to Colorado, but now I can't imagine my life without them. Maybe I'm weird but I think socks make a great gift. They're something you know will be used but still feel like a bit of a luxury because they're more expensive than your basic white crew cuts.

Philosophy soap - Again, call me weird but I love gifting soaps and for the same reason! All Philosophy products smell great so you can't go wrong with a scent. I'm currently using this Snow Angel in my shower and love it. Plus Philosophy body washes can be used as shampoo and bubblebath too.

Patagonia Better Sweater Jacket - I bought this on a whim last winter during a sale and I'm so glad I did. It feels more put together than my puffy, but is surprisingly very warm. Patagonia is a great quality brand that anyone will be excited to unwrap. My boyfriend has the better sweater vest and highly recommends it too!

Pendant Necklace - Akola is a brand you can feel good about buying because it supports women in need by providing them work. I love the vibrant colors of their jewelry and the pendants are very unique. I own a few of their necklaces but this is my favorite style because its more simple yet makes a statement.
