    wonderful picks.
    (sadly the polka dotted mug doesn’t seem to be available in blue :(

  2. annawithlove says:

    love it, I’ve gotten two ideas already from this – thank you!!

  3. Brigitte says:

    Love the green/blue, but just so you know, the last link (masking tape) just goes to a general Etsy search.

  4. Ashley says:

    So many fabulous options. I’ve decided I’m going with a lot of red for my holiday decorations (including a garland I made and wrote about today), and the red leather satchel from Toast would “go” so well under my tree!

  5. Honey Duggan says:

    Thanks so much for posting this gift guide! I just snagged the red stadium throw – for myself! :)

  6. Emily says:

    the red satchel and jade ring are my favorites – so gorgeous!

    Love pretty much everything.

  11. So much color!!! Love, love, love!! I’m especially digging the blue/green scarf {and fortunately, the weather in Dallas has finally cooled down enough that I can wear scarves again! yayyy!}.

    I love the gifts and love that you set them out in color. It makes them even more attractive.
