Gifts Everyone Will Enjoy!

Thursday, October 8, 2015

I'm always on the hunt for original gifts when it comes to housewarming, congratulations, a heartfelt I'm thinking of you, sympathy, birthday, and anything else that pops up for all of us... and you know that the holiday gift guides will be out soon enough to have all of us swooning for Christmas, but here is a listing of some of my go-to favorites for anyone you're looking to surprise!

Got a friend who just moved into a new home? I love this Hello Decorative Circle wooden door sign to hang on their front door or this Jayes Studio Blue Wave Tub to serve as a mail catchall! 

What about a gal pal that just received a sparkly diamond on her ring finger? This Wishbone Ring Holder should suit her fancy! Or if she is more practical, you can send her a beautiful Art Print from a city that has a sentimental meaning [I'm showing Charleston because it's where we got engaged]. 

Looking for a gift for the culinary chef in your life?? Fill their bellies with recipes from the Southern Made Fresh Cookbook or add to their housewares collection with this Monogrammed Melamine Platter

Of course if you're selecting a goodie for a southern girl or guy, just pick up The Southerner's Handbook and a Beaded Mint Julep Cup and your job is done. 

Needing to give someone a proper "thank you" gift? Hand over this Floral Coaster SetCustom Stationery, or this Barr Co. Hand Lotion and Soap Duo and they won't soon forget your thoughtfulness. 

And of course if there is a new baby to spoil, you needn't look any farther than a KicKee Pants Footie and Swaddle Blanket. The softest material you can fathom and once you feel it, you're hooked... yes, it's a proven fact! 

There you have it... my list of favorites. Now tell me, what are some of your go-to giftables? 


  1. LOVE all of these!! I pride myself on finding good, thoughtful gifts, so these are definitely going on my list!! (PS Do you see that the card you picked from Bella Carta is Louise's stationary??? Didn't Jillian do such a cute job on those?!) xo

    1. you have GREAT taste obviously my dear :)

  2. My go-to housewarming / new baby / pretty much any occasion gift is a homemade meal and a cookbook to go with it, so I'll be checking out that Southern Made Fresh cookbook!

  3. Stationary is the best gift a girl can give and/or receive. I have so much and I just love being able to send a personalized note to a friend for no reason at all.

  4. Lotion + soap duo is a great idea!! And a cookbook as a housewarming gift… genius!! Add a handtowel and a cute burlap bow and that would make SUCH a cute gift!
