The Best Gifts I've Ever Gotten

The other day I came home to a package on my doorstep. I hadn’t ordered anything and thought it might be for David but it had my name on it. When I opened it up,  it was 4 spode wine glasses. Talk about being surprised! It made my month and was truly one of the best gifts ever. It got me thinking about all of the best gifts I’ve ever gotten….

  1. The spode wine glasses – because it was such a surprise sent in the mail when I wasn’t expecting anything. I definitely want to remember this for next year. Sending something “Christmas-y” at the beginning of the month gives the recipient so much time to enjoy it!
  2. David Yurman Bracelet – David gave me one for our first Christmas together and one for my birthday last year. I wear them everyday, and when I look at them I always remember those special occasions. Plus they are timeless and go with everything. Check and check
  3. A leather jacket – my sister got me a leather jacket when she was living in NYC and sent it down to Mississippi. It was such a BIG surprise and  a thoughtful gift since I had told her how much I loved hers. That was at least 4 years ago and it’s still one of my favorite jackets. I kind of love that we have matching ones too – it reminds me of when we matched as little kids
  4. pearl earrings – similar to the David Yurman bracelets, these go with everything and are so meaningful since David gave them to me.
  5. The adirondack chairs my parents gave us are one of my favorite gifts because they were on the “want” list for a WHILE – I love that they are from the desert (what we call our families lake house) and we use them ALL the time. Clearly I like things that I use a lot haha.
  6. The Signet ring – this is such a great gift. Who doesn’t love a monogram? It’s another timeless piece of jewelry that is so fun to wear.
  7. This scarf is just the picture I am going to use to represent a gift card to your favorite place. My sister sent me a gift card to TCBY for my birthday this past year and, although some people think giftcards can be impersonal, I think if they are to that person’s favorite store – like J. Crew, or their favorite dessert destination, like TCBY, it can be SO sweet and really show how much you know that person. Plus, it’s the gift that keeps on giving.
  8. Moscow Mule Mugs – I am OBSESSED with my set of these. I think this falls into the category of “every girl wants them” but they really aren’t a “necessary” which makes it hard to pull the trigger sometimes. 8 of these has been one of my very favorite gifts ever.
  9. Cupcakes and Cashmere book – I love blogging, and I love Emily Schuman. I’ve gotten her first and second book as gifts and I LOVE them. They are full of great information – like easy decorating ideas, how to make a good cheese plate, and how to de-clutter.
  10. the Tile – find your iphone …. but for your keys…. or your purse…. need I say more? you put the tile in your purse or on your keychain and there is an app to make it make a noise. YESSSSSSSSSS
  11. Brittany Fushion paper – it was the sweetest gift from my mother-in-law. Something that showed how much she knew about my likes and interests. I still love using the pad she got me to make lists 🙂
  12. Annie Glass – the prettiest pieces of glass. Annie Glass is made in California but most popular in Mississippi because that is where people do the most entertaining. I love it! It was such a special gift and I think of my best friend every time I use it.
Speaking of gifts – I am about to knock out the rest of my Christmas shopping .. are you done? Christmas music is currently on and I have all the gift wrapping supplies I need to wrap the gifts I already have. Between the coffee with cinnamon and Nilla snuggles I think this will be an enjoyable Christmas activity indeed! Have a wonderful day and thank you so much for reading 🙂
