Let The Holiday Gift Guides Commence + A Giveaway

Holiday Gift Guide, Waiting On Martha


It was brought to my attention yesterday that over a quarter of you have already completed your holiday shopping!?  I immediately thought, “Seriously a quarter of you, that’s crazy?!”  And then I thought, “What do you do now, just sit back and sip egg nog while the rest of us scramble?!”  And I realized sipping egg nog sounded way better than fighting all the holiday crazy that is about to commence.  So with that I bring you the first, but definitely not the last of our holiday gift guides.  

And because it’s better to give than receive (at least that’s what they tell me), we’re starting the season off right by giving away a $200 gift card below to one of Team WOM’s favorites, Shopbop.  Shopbop just opened their Holiday Gift Shop and it’s full of everything you need for everyone on your list plus there’s East Dane for the men in your life.  So my Loves, let’s get gifting!  Truly, MKR



ONE.  Jewelry Box  ||  TWO.  Footed Salt & Pepper Shakers  ||  THREE.  Peace & Love Mini Appetizer Plates  ||  FOUR.  Kate Spade Mini iPad & Keyboard Holder  ||  FIVE.  Zodiac Votive Candles  ||  SIX.  Buffalo Check Cookie Jar (or dog treat jar)  ||  SEVEN.  Tory Burch Fitbit Bracelet  ||  EIGHT.  Noir Earrings  ||  NINE.  Kate Spade Camden Pom Pom Slippers  ||  TEN.  Alexandra Von Furstenberg Coasters  ||  ELEVEN.  MCM Dog  ||  TWELVE.  Love Light  ||  THIRTEEN.  Buffalo Check Dog Coat  ||  FOURTEEN.  Oscar de la Renta Fashion & Style Book  ||  FIFTEEN.  Diamond Earrings  ||  SIXTEEN.  Convertible Leather & Knit Gloves  ||  SEVENTEEN.  Kate Spade Dream A Little Dream Eyelash Mask  ||  EIGHTEEN.  Gold Fortune Cookie
