Mom & Dad Holiday Gift Guides // 2015

 

How are you doing on present buying, friends? While it might be early December, we’re feelin’ a tad stressed! We’re excited to shop for our parents though, because they’re the most fun to surprise! We’re looking to treat mom to some luxurious beauty care she might not buy for herself, some great DIY or cook books that she’ll dive right into, and some fun and comforting items for around the house, like a good calendar, a useful tool or some cozy slippers!

2015 Calendar Love

If there’s one thing to help us keep that New Year’s resolution of being more organized, it’s a fresh new calendar. People have really been stepping up their design game for them these last few years, and we’re finding it tough to pick just one!

Iphone Cases

GM_IphoneCases_new

While we anxiously await the new iphone, there are still a few of us who can’t afford to immediately jump on the preorder wagon. In the mean time, we’ll be doing just fine with our 5’s & 5C’s, fancied up with some fun cases like these…

Happy Weekend!

This picture just makes us want to rent a rustic place in the mountains and relax a bit! This week felt extra long and stressful, huh? Let’s take some time to ourselves this weekend, do something fun (whether it be lounging or going out). And if you’re lounging, make sure to check out some of these links…

Design Feature: Rifle Paper Co.

Rifle Paper Co. has been one of our favorites for years! We first read about her little company in a small Country Living blurb, and became immediately obsessed with her cheerful illustrations, and hand done typography which covers cards, calendars, recipe boxes and wedding invitations. We’ve given them as gifts, gotten them for ourselves, and been happy to present fantastic cards to family and friends. We figured with the holidays coming up, we’d love to share with you the amazing holiday collection she has out now. You might have noticed a sneak peek of her Winter Foliage Set in our Mother Gift Guide, but that was just one design out of so many more – take a look!gm_RPC_Set2gm_RPC_set3gm_RPC_set1gm_RPC_Set5gm_RPC_Set4
Post cards, regular cards, ornament cards, and foil cards! So many options!

And since it was Christa’s birthday this past Saturday, we decided to check out some birthday cards and items that you could give as gifts, whether it be the holidays, birthday or just because!gm_RPC_Birthday
