11 Gift Ideas Found Around My Home

In the lead up to Christmas, there is a lot of panic and stressing about finding that “perfect” gift … not to mention, a lot of time is generally wasted running around in search of what to buy for your friends and family. Personally, I try to gift things that I know are timeless and things that someone will have forever … along with a few little items that are a tiny bit luxurious that someone may not want to buy themselves!

Sometimes when I’m struggling for a gift idea I like to take a walk around my own house for a little inspo … I take a mental note of items that I absolutely love and that I feel others would enjoy just as much as I do! This is such a simple way to get some really great ideas and then to hit the town with a plan and some items to check off your list … rather than wasting time running around in circles … hungry … irritated and flustered … LOL!!! We’ve all been there, right?!

Welp, I took a little cruise through our house and below are some items I came across that I think would make the perfect gifts (in my opinion ?) for many of those on your Christmas list! And the best part?! You can get all of these from Nordstrom!!

1. Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick

I love this lipstick because it’s packaged so beautifully and looks adorable on your bathroom vanity and it’s awesome lipstick, I love its square flat tip which makes it so easy to apply! And it’s cruelty-free!!!

2. Voluspa Candles

Candles make the perfect gift, in my opinion, you can never have too many candles and I feel like most people don’t necessarily like buying candles for themselves so they make for a little gift of luxury! I always have so many candles lit in our home as it makes it feel so cozy … and smell delish!

3. Hunter Boots

I love the idea of gifting Hunter Boots for a few reasons … first off, no one wants to buy themselves rainboots … even though they are ADORABLE!! Secondly, they make Hunter’s for the whole family … and you all know just how much I like to match my boys!! I mean … just look at how cute the baby Hunter’s are below … ?

4. Pink Converse

Need I say more?!?!

5. Patagonia Sweaters

I looove Patagonia sweaters for all of our outdoor activities, and it’s another way (just like the Hunters!) I can match Leo and Justin!! LOL!! Can you spot a trend here??

6. Google Home

We just recently got our Google Home and I’m in love with it … I didn’t think I would use it much but I was completely wrong!! Every night before dinner I request it play classical music for Leo while he eats … and BOOM … a classical music playlist magically comes on … LOL!! I love the fact that its hands-free, that comes in super handy in our busy household.

7. Nest Cam

This is a techy staple in our home, Nest Cams are a bit of an investment but they are so worth it. We use ours as a home security system AND as a baby monitor! You can also go back and check the footage as everything is saved, it’s such a smart investment!

8. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Care

This is one of my little saviors … it’s a nightly serum that helps reduce the signs of aging. Perfect for those friends of yours who may be new moms! LOL!!

9. DryBar Blow Dryer

My absolute FAVE blow dryer around … again, one of those things you never want to buy yourself but something you use every day!

10. Kate Spade Earrings

These are the perfect oversized studs for the fashionista on your list!

11. Initial Pendant

Everyone always asks where I got my “L” necklace from and truth is, Justin got it from a jewelry store downtown Vancouver but there are so many cute options that look so similar at an amazing price point!! These are such a cute, sentimental gift that can be worn every day!
