Gift Guides 2017: For Him

Sorry for the delay on posting this week- I got hit with a nasty case of strep and am seriously down for the count. Typing to you from my bed (which I will soon be asleep in). But here is my first gift guide of the season- for him. I tried to categorize it a bit this year by interests/styles, so I hope you find that helpful! Happy Thanksgiving to you all, and I’ll be back on Friday with another guide!

When Life Gets Crazy

(Just a  random stunning kitchen I’m loving from Bria Hammel)

Hey Guys- My weekend was an absolute sh*tshow of a very sick toddler + husband away and I have a big, full day of meetings so my post will have to wait until tomorrow. Sorry! Gift guides begin tomorrow though, so get excited.  My categories this year are For Her, For Him, For Kids + Pets, For Home and Under $100/ Stocking Stuffers.  If you have any specific requests please comment, I’d love to hear what you guys are looking for, what kind of budget ranges appeal to you and anything else you look for when doing your holiday shopping! Can you believe its that time already????

XOXO,
Erin
