2011 Holiday Gift Guide

My family has decided not to exchange gifts this year. I find it has been a really nice change of pace to remove the stress of buying a ton of gifts all at the same time. However, I haven’t been able to resist doing a little web browsing and have put together a quick list of a few holiday ideas for your loved ones.

1. These ceramic fruit baskets would be a great way to fancy up this postcard calendar journal from Design*Sponge. Anthropologie, $14.

2. This wicker wine bucket would be a great addition to a backyard dinner party on a warm summer night. Z Gallerie, $24.95.

3. A Foodzie tasting box subscription. Choose from a variety of food themes or let your recipient be surprised every month. If a monthly subscription is too much for your pocketbook, they also have one-time gourmet boxes available. Foodzie.com, starting at $29.95.

4. Monogrammed items are a great way to personalize a gift. This Monogrammed Teapot is so elegant it could be left on the counter as a decoration when not in use. Pottery Barn, $49.

5. I can’t wait to try this DIY dye dipped shirt from Martha Stewart. It is a chic way to give someone you love a handmade gift. You could even make a matching scarf. Dye is only about $4 per bottle so you could make gifts for a ton of people very inexpensively. Step-by-step directions can be found at marthastewart.com.

If you have any other great gift ideas, I would love to hear about them in the comments. Happy Holidays!
