Yesterday I shared a look at my updated gallery wall with Simply Framed, a wall that definitely doesn’t shy from the bold or colorful. And while gallery walls tend feel very “one-and-done,” I touched upon the process of continually...
You know, there’s something to be said for knocking all of your Christmas shopping out in one sweep. Impossible, you say? I thought so too, honestly. Because typically this time of year, I can be found running around town, trying to beat the holiday traffic to cross everyone off my Christmas list. So when Bed Bath & Beyond invited me to the store to find gifts for EVERYONE on my holiday list this year…I was game, and intrigued (read: relieved?!) by the idea.
Truthfully, I hadn’t been in a Bed Bath & Beyond since I moved into our home. At that point, it was more like I was visiting the store twice a day; there was always something I forgot I needed. But once we were settled, Bed Bath & Beyond kind of fell off my radar. But after my recent visit, I can tell you it will never fall off my radar again.
Upon walking through the front doors, I was immediately blown away by the range of goods. I mean, I even came to find a whole wine section; they didn’t have a wine section before, did they?! But okay, back to Christmas shopping: as I raked the aisles with my husband, mother, father, Addison, etc. in mind, I spotted a ton of homewares, tech finds and stocking stuffers that would be great under the tree this year. This Amazon Echo, for one, will be a huge hit with the Mr. And I am absolutely obsessed with my cordless kettle that I have in my bedroom, so I’m gifting one to my mother…she’ll be in heaven. Grilling accessories for dad, and plenty of coffee and a few Kate Spade goodies for my MIL. And of course, I HAD to pick up a little something for myself…I mean I collect copper cookware, so this mini version was calling my name.
If you’re still scratching your head over what to gift that last person on your Christmas list, check out what I snagged from Bed Bath & Beyond below. It really was a one-stop-shop for gifting this year. I’d love to know: have you finished your shopping yet?! Truly, MKR
Pawslife™ Plaid Fleece Dog Blanket/Bone Gift Box with Toys in Red
For my fur baby and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Addison, this festive plaid fleece blanket is going to be a hit. She loves cuddling up on throw blankets (and laundry), so it’s perfect that now she can have her very own Christmas blanket and toys, to boot.
This cordless kettle…let’s just say that I’m obsessed. I know my mom will love it as much as me too. I keep mine in my bedroom, where I boil water for nighttime tea, warm water & lemon in the morning, etc. I’m considering buying another one for our guest room; it would be perfect for entertaining out-of-town guests.
This is such a strong gift for the techy on your list; that’s my husband Anthony for me. The Amazon Echo is the latest-and-greatest hands free device that lets you control music, thermostats, lights and more with the sound of your voice. I know he’s going to love it!
Perfect for the chef on your list (and yourself), these gorgeous stainless steel pots and pans with a striking copper exterior finish create a timeless look. Each piece comes in a miniature size, which is a) irresistible because everything mini is adorable and b) perfect for whipping up a quick meal by myself or for my husband and me.
kate spade new york One in a Million™ Initial Business Card Holder
This sweet gift basket will be perfect for my BFF who just had a baby! As a big fan of Burt’s Bees, I feel good about gifting this set that includes a mini lotion, a kimono and pant set, bib, hat, blanket, and more to keep her baby warm and cozy in soft, organic cotton.

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, we’re busy preparing to set the perfect holiday spread. That of course includes pulling out our favorite Thanksgiving table essentials like these figural pumpkin serving dishes and the pretty gold flatware!
If you haven’t started scheming your holiday spread, don’t fret. There’s still time to pick up heirloom-worthy dinnerware (this collection is quintessential Turkey Day!) and festive touches (LOVE these turkey place cards). And it’s the perfect time to score some deals with Williams-Sonoma’s fall tabletop event (everything’s 30% off). Along with these gems, we’ve included 13 Thanksgiving table essentials below to get you Turkey Day ready. Tell me, what’s on the top of your list for Thanksgiving table essentials? Cheers, Kat
P.S. Looking for the turkey recipe to end all turkey recipes? Here you go. xo
Make a statement with quintessential Thanksgiving dinnerware. The rich, timeless design dresses up any table and will give your guests all the feels, long after their plates are clean and their bellies are full. Added bonus? They’re on sale!
Speaking of depth, place mats are a must! Not only are we always a fan of rattan and jute everything, but we especially love it on the table. These beautiful straw place mats will be used long after the holidays are done, too.
These white pumpkin serving dishes and vessels are the perfect marriage of festive and functional. You’ll love bringing these out every year with tradition, and you’ll relish the chance to pass them down for generations to come.
Can’t forget about the serving set! This matching gold serving set is an essential for serving up a drool-worthy spread. And like the flatware, this set will quickly become an entertaining staple on all of your tabletops.
It’s time to bring out the fancy wine glasses! These gold red-wine glasses dress up the holiday table, and should never, ever run dry! Remember the importance of the day and toast your glasses to what you’re thankful for.
How cute are these napkin ties?! It’s an incredibly easy way to include a little festive flair to the table, and very kid-friendly for little fingers! And under $20, it’s the perfect addition to even the simplest spreads.
Set the scene with these white tapered candles. We especially love this set because they’re made in the USA, and are smokeless and dripless (!). This way, you can rest easy that you won’t have a big old mess on your Thanksgiving table. There are more important things to worry about and it starts with a “t” and ends with an “urkey.”
A simple finishing touch? These turkey place cards. Place cards take the question out of where to sit, and encourage meaningful conversation around the table. Why not include cute turkey designs on them while you’re at it?
In our opinion, there are five crucial things you must have with you when you’re having a picnic in the park: a great picnic basket, a roomy blanket for everyone to lounge on, easy and portable food, good tunes, and of course, outdoor games. I’m a huge fan of ladder toss, bocce is always a crowd-pleaser, and these oversized yard dominoes are just awesome. (Be sure to catch our tutorial on Home Depot’s blog for this DIY ladder toss game.) Tell me, what are you always packing for a day at the park? Cheers, Kat
