the one with a gift guide for the home

Today I’m here to share my gift guide for the home! The 3rd of the 2014 gift guides!!

I love to have people into my home for dinner parties. And by dinner parties I just mean spending time together while eating and drinking. Whether it’s popcorn and wine (like the Pope’s) or eggs benedict and orange juice with my brunching bloggers, I want my home to be an inviting place.

I tell Iron Man it’s why I’m such a neat freak. Clutter is not inviting. But that is neither here nor there so let’s get to the good stuff


globe – globes are everywhere in home décor! If you can find some vintage ones grab them quick!

throw pillow – every home décor enthusiast most likely switches out her pillows on a fairly regular basis. They’re easy to switch, easy to store, and easy on your wallet.

crate & barrel – They’re Olivia Pope’s favorite wine glasses.  So 1. they hold a lot and 2. they’re pretty.

world market – They’ll need a place to hold that wine, so here’s the perfect place. * I super love this and it’s hexagon shape, anyone who wonders what to get me for Christmas*

mrs. meyers soy candle – Since our memories are triggered by certain scents, it’s important to have your home smell appropriate. Long lasting soy candles at a decent price are the perfect gift for anyone!

gem vase – don’t worry these come in more colors than just purple 🙂

blanket – It’s cold, and it’s about to get even colder! A stylish blanket can be left on the couch so you don’t have to pull it out every time you want to cuddle on the couch.

elephant bookends – Bookends can be used for more than just keeping some books together, and I’m all for versatility. Plus elephants symbolize strength, honor, stability . . . everything you’d want brought up on your home.

What’s on your list for your home?

    I LOVE those wine glasses and have been eyeing them for quite some time! We also keep blankets around like crazy because we keep the house a little cooler to save some money! I might have to get that pillow, too, it’s adorable!

    if clutter is not inviting then I need to work on my little space and throw a lot of things away. AND WHEN ARE WE GONNA BRUNCH?
