Practical Gifts to Give for him & her feat. Mark & Graham

I’m a big believer in giving gifts people will use. After all, you’re spending your hard-earned money so you don’t want it to go to waste! I’m partnering with Mark & Graham to share practical gifts for him and her.  One reason I love Mark & Graham is you can personalize every gift. Adding a monogram is the extra touch and can make a gift truly unique and memorable. Plus, you can shop for anyone there, whether it’s a significant other, parent, best friend or coworker.  My photographer who took these photos is actually looking at items to gift her bridesmaids from Mark & Graham.  I’m breaking this post into gifts for him and gifts for her. If you’re an early shopper, grab some coffee or warm tea and settle in! I’ve got plenty of great gift ideas for you! Plus, Mark & Graham wrap all gifts in their signature gift wrap, so you don’t even have to do anything. Once they arrive, tuck them under the tree and you are all set.

Holiday Sweets :: Baked Dipping S’mores (5-Minute Recipe)

This is easily our favorite holiday recipe, hands down. We make it every winter and devour it in less than 10 minutes. In 2013, we stumbled upon this recipe by Byron Talbott and knew it was something special. Fast forward four years later and we’re still making it!  It’s a simple recipe but sure to win over the hearts of anyone you make it for. These baked dipping s’mores take about five minutes to make and are perfect for enjoying by the fire or while cozying up with a cute Christmas movie. Speaking of, the Christmas Prince on Netflix is so bad it’s so good, ha! I don’t like the representation of journalism on it, but other than that soooo worth watching, ha…

Holiday Ready :: Tartan Vest & Striped Turtleneck

I’m a sucker for festive holiday attire and this tartan vest is no exception! This is the perfect Christmas plaid with hints of green, gold and blue on top of the sea of red. Plus, the navy blue velvet trim really makes this vest pop. What I love about this vest is it’s easy to throw over anything, yet thin enough you can wear it under coats. Whether you pair this with a striped turtleneck like I am here or over a cozy cashmere sweater, you’re sure to look chic. One aspect I love about vests is how warm they truly can be. Keeping your chest and vital organs warm, will keep you warm. This tartan vest is slim and lightweight, but truly really warm with its polyfill. I opt for just this tartan vest over a light sweater if temperatures are going to be warmer than 40 degrees…

Our Personalized Christmas Cards for 2017 with minted

It blows my mind Christmas is less than a week away! I love the holidays because I get to go home and see my family, even if it’s just for a little bit. Living in a completely different state from family and friends can be so hard. Time and chaotic schedules get the best of you and catching up gets harder and harder. This is why I love to send personalized Christmas cards. On the back, Johnny and I write a two-three sentence update about each of us. That way family and friends, no matter where you are, know how our lives are going and what we’re working on. This year, I’m teaming up with minted to create these beautiful personalized Christmas cards. Those who get one know we’re thinking about them…
