{Favorite Things} To Give

First, thank you all so much for the sweet birthday wishes yesterday!  I think 29 will be my best year yet {yes, I said that about 28 but I really think 29 will be my year!}  If you haven't already, make sure you enter the giveaway I announced!

This series of link-ups with Elise over the last three weeks has been so fun!  Not only I have found tons of great gifting ideas, but I've found a few new amazing blogs to follow too!

On to my favorite things to give!  When I find something that I love {product, kitchen gadget, clothes, brand, you name it!} I feel the need to tell everyone about it, and give them as gifts.  I just like to share the love!   Here are some of my favorite things that I'll be giving as gifts to sweet friends and family members this year!

> Fun jewelry!  I don't think you can go wrong with this one, and Loft is always one of my favorite places to look for accessories.

> Cooking gadgets:  O gave me this amazing digital thermometer by Food Network a few years ago & I can't cook without it!  Takes the guess work out of "do you think this is done?!"

> A gift certificate for a mani/pedi, facial or massage.  So often my friends and family won't treat themselves to things like this!

> I love these pitcher tags from Ballard Designs!  Makes a nice little hostess gift for all those holiday parties too!

> DVD TV series.  I have all 10 seasons of Friends on DVD, O has all of Seinfeld.  If someone you know LOVES a TV series, or wants to start watching one from the beginning, this is a winner.  If you're looking for a new one, I suggest Mad Men.  OMG.  Put Scandal on the list too ;)

> O and his brother do a Bourbon Exchange every year.  Being born & bred in Kentucky, these boys do love their bourbon and this gives them a great way of trying new kinds!  If bourbon isn't your thing, you could always try a new beer or wine.  And it doesn't have to be alcohol--anything edible is always a winner in my book!

I have SO enjoyed linking-up for the past three weeks sharing some of my favorite things!  You know what else is one of my favorite things?  YOU GUYS!  When I started this little ol' blog, I never thought for a minute that anyone other than my family would think our life was exciting enough to read about!  Reading your comments and visiting your blogs are seriously a highlight of my week!  Y'all are just great!  I can't wait to see what is on your list!


  1. Ah a bourbon exchange sounds awesome! Such a fun idea :)

  2. The idea to do a bourbon exchange is genius! My husband would LOVE that! He can get the bourbon... I'll get those earrings :) Love the list -

  3. massage certificate and bourbon would be my hub's ideas of perfection. after looking at some of these posts today, i think i'm definitely going to get him a massage gift certificate!!!! gotta try to be sneaky about it though because i can't let him see where it's from on our joint account...!!! EEEK! gift giving is so fun. :)
