gift guide for your guy.

I think it's about time that I finally posted a few gift ideas for that special guy in your life.  I know that my husband definitely deserves some goodies.  So here are a few of my faves.  I love a guy in a hat, period!  This lamp would be the perfect addition to his office.  You can't go wrong with a pair of classic sunnies.  And my guy already loves his dodocase, and their newest product, dodonotes, is pretty rad.  A paper notebook for you to rest your phone in.  I mean, I'm definitely a girl who always loves a little handwritten note from my guy.

I definitely think the little succulent sculptures from yesterday's post would be the perfect hostess gift, and it made me think about what other hostess gifts I've recently come across.  Below are a few of my faves.  Uhhh hello, that adorable heart shaped ice tray is less then $5.  And be sure to check out my first little round-up here.

a birthday gift.

As soon as I spotted this Oh Dier sign via Tara's blog I knew that we had to have one.  I mean come on, that "you're killin' me smalls" one was plain old cracking me up.  So when it was time to find a birthday gift for G, I knew that one of these signs was the perfect present.  G and I don't normally buy one another birthday gifts.  Weird, I know.  ha!  Well it's not that we don't buy one another presents, it's more like we don't surprise each other with the gifts.  We are total dorks and when our bdays roll around we usually go shopping together and just pick out one special item.  Very anti-climatic, right?  But honestly we both kind of love spending the day roaming around helping one another find the perfect little item.  Well I went rogue this year and decided I was gonna surprise G with his gift.  The only problem, the big surprise was almost ruined when the gift showed up while I was away on a bachelorette party.  Crap!  Well I quickly made up some crazy story about how I had bought my cousin a gift on etsy and asked G not to open it cause I wanted to ship it to her in that same box.  He totally bought it (and sorry cousin Em, I didn't really buy you a gift...ha!).  I asked Oh Dier if they could do a custom piece and they were more then willing (btw, awesome etsy shop.  I highly recommend them).  I chose an acrylic white (you know our favorite color) sign, and asked them to use "love you, love your show".  It's a saying G and I always say to one another, so I knew it was just perfect.  Speaking of, people often ask us what it means and truth is I didn't entirely know.  It's just our little way of saying I totally love you.  Then I looked it up and found this definition on urban dictionary, "to be fond of someone, grow a liking to, fancy someone, intensely favor their whole being".  Yep, that about sums it up.  I love your whole being G and am so happy to share my life with you.

flower power.

I spotted this print via Making It Lovely's blog and instantly fell in love.  The funny thing is, I'm not usually one for floral patterns (often times they can go a little too old school for me), but I couldn't stop staring at these.  I love that the flowers are big and bright and just cheery.  Definitely thinking that one of those Rifle journals would make the perfect little gift.

My obsession with geodes continues.  Growing up my mom had a lot of jewelry made of amethyst, crystals, various natural rocks...all of which I've forever loved.  These little gems all hold a special place in my heart and really remind me of my childhood.  The various uses below, are all beyond gorgeous.  Ummm and if someone finds a bracelet similar to the ones below, please tell me.  I need one asap.

Yesterday my friend and I were chatting about the perfect gift to bring over when visiting a friend.  These are some of my fave items that I believe would make the perfect little hostess gift.  Ohhhhhhh and I may already own that gold feather and can attest to it's awesomeness.
