Holiday Gift Ideas...by color!

~A Few  Holiday Gift Ideas~

2.  gift tags, set of 10...$18.00
3.  on-and-on loop...$38.00


1.  dahlia necklace...$18.00
2.  set of 14 pens...$20.00


2.  Sicilian pistachio macarons...$1.60 each


1.  waffle-knit crewneck...$44.50


2.  bernard driving cap...$39.50
3.  hands bowl...$50.00


It's no secret that I love color, so I thought it would be fun to put together some gift ideas grouped by color.  I adore giving gifts, but stress myself out completely trying to find the perfect thing. Then when I give the gift, before the recipient even opens it, I am either explaining what they may dislike about it or detailing why I thought it was perfect. Sometimes I just need to shut my mouth! :)

I have not purchased one gift yet and I am starting to freak out! Since we travel during Christmas, I either need plan ahead and have our packages shipped to our destination or buy things easy to pack...Ahh!! I do love the madness of this time of year, though.  I hope you are a little more prepared than I! [or should that say more prepared than me?...I looked it up and I still don't know. Ha!]  I am taking a brief blogging break to work on a few projects.  See you back here on Monday!


Happy Shopping!!

There are tons of gift guides..but this is hands down my favorite. I love how you arranged it by color. So pretty. And great picks too!

I agree with Danielle 1000%. I love how you put this together and I adore the things you chose. You have such a great eye!

I have also not purchased a thing and I am with you on being stressed out. I am like this every year, though, so why change now? LOL

Love love love!

It's 'more prepared than I'. Just put the word 'am' at the end, and you can easily tell which is correct (More prepared than me am?).

it's "than i," but sometimes i just think ME sounds better. =)

Okay, so remember I sent you that email, like an hour ago, telling you that "I'm heading right over" here to comment???

Well, I've been here the ENTIRE time- shopping!! I just ordered 5 items from one etsy shop (including that fabulous dahlia necklace- Santa's gift to me:), and the giraffe print (for Hailey- she loves giraffes)!!

LOVE this gift guide! I'm sharing it on FB right now...

P.S.
I'm also getting other items from this list (including that "How to Behave" book!)

Ana Degenaar said...

Macarons are on my list! I love these suggestions! Lovely!

Damaris @Kitchen Corners said...

what an awesome roundup of pretty things. I love the purple onesie. I totally want it for Maria.

I love this list, Suzie. In fact, I am emailing the post to my husband! :o) Great finds! I especially love ALL of the jewelry!

Michelle Salz-Smith said...

These are beautiful Suzie!! And will get me in lots of trouble. :)

Thanks so much for including our bracelet!

Suzie @ cupcake monkey said...

Glad you like it ladies!! Thanks for the sweet words, too! :)

I still have not purchased one thing!! Yikes! I need to get shopping!!

Michelle said...

Oh, I love all the orange ones! Plus, that guy in the stripped sweater...he's hot. HOT!

Hi Suzie! I have been a longtime reader of your blog, but have never commented before. I feel I have to now because I did every single bit of my Christmas shopping from this post. You have no idea how happy this made me. i also need to tell you that I love that you didn't call it a gift guide. The word "guide" seems so presumptuous...like we MUST use it or something. This is just one of those weird things for me, but I hate seeing people calling their ideas "guides"! Anyway, just wanted you to know that you I am a "lurker" I guess who rarely comments on any blogs, but I do love everything you post.
