[ THE FAVORITE THINGS ] HOLIDAY 2016

There are a million gift guides out there, but here is one to sooth your Type-A soul, and tame your OCD tendencies. And let's be honest, if you're reading our blog, you probably like things lined up, symmetrical, and in color-order. We totally get it, and we got your covered. 

[ THE ] HOUSE

1. LE CRUSET COOKING TOOL SET

Matching kitchen utensils gives the your drawers and countertops a finished look. Everything will look clean and organized and give you an opportunity to edit out pieces you no longer like or use. [5 piece set and utensil holder, Williams Sonoma // $89]

2. TURKISH T HAND TOWELS

We organize a lot of kitchens.. and one of our favorite kitchen accessories, is actually a good hand towel. Whether its folded nicely in a drawer or hung on an oven door (this was not intended to rhyme, but it happened, so.. tis the season) Turkish-T towels just make everything look better. And once you have good towels, you'll be able to get rid of the ones you've been holding onto for (way) too long. [ Hand towels, Turkish-T // $19 each ] 

3. THE SPICE JAR SET

How on earth could we suggest gifts to help you streamline your home without mentioning our own products? Our custom spice jar sets add uniformity to your kitchen or pantry and are a guaranteed crowd pleaser. [ THE spice jars // $55 for 12 custom jars ]

[ THE ] KIDS

4. JUNIPER BOOK SET

We are huge proponents of color-coordinating books, but if we could just buy ALL of our books in perfectly color-coordinated order - that would work too. Whether you use these in your kids rooms or on the living room shelves, you'll achieve all the #ROYGBIV goals. [ Set of 11 Puffin Classics // $189 ]

5. GRIMM'S RAINBOW STACKER

Like it or not, our kids have toys. Which means we need to live with toys in our house. But they don't HAVE to be ugly plastic contraptions needing 12 batteries. This rainbow stacker can actually be rebuilt in a variety of ways (you honestly won't believe it but you can make everything from a dinosaur to a doll house) and looks cute while in-play, or sitting on a shelf. [ Grimm's Large Rainbow Stacker // $42.95 ]

[ THE ] WOMEN

6. JEWELRY BOX

Good jewelry storage is hard to find - particularly something that's pretty enough to leave out in the open. This jewelry box holds all your bits and baubles, and is chic enough to leave on top of your dresser or bathroom counter. [ Faceted Mirror Box, West Elm  // $127 ]

[ THE ] MEN

7. TAME THE BEAST GROOMING SET

For whomever is married.. In the same way we need to resign ourselves to living with our kids toys, we also need to resign ourselves to living with our husbands STUFF everywhere. WHY is it always everywhere??? Ugh. Anyway.. for the holidays, get him something that helps streamline a space your share. We love this new set of grooming products because their clean look will give your bathroom / shower an instant upgrade. And just think of the 1 million other bottles you'll finally be able to throw out! [ Beast Box Gift Set // $88

[ THE ] PETS

8. PET FOOD CANISTER

Pet food is something people are always trying to hide in a cabinet or stash in a corner. It's unattractive and bulky. Getting a container that you can actually leave out, is a game changer for your space. [ Pet Food Canister, Pottery Barn // $69 ]

[ THE ] NEW PARENTS

9. SENTIMENTAL STORAGE

Finding unique gifts for new or expecting parents can be hard. How many bibs and blankets can any one person receive? We love this baby keepsake box because it holds all the special pieces from the newborn years, and is nice enough to leave on your bookshelf instead of the attic. [ Library Baby Keepsake Box, Savor // $79.95 ]

[ THE ] STOCKING

10. ACRYLIC PHONE STAND

This acrylic ruler / phone holder / and card holder is a chic addition to almost any room. Whether it's for a teenagers bedroom, a kitchen counter, or a home office - this is an easy and versatile gift that fits perfectly into a stocking. [ Acrylic phone holder, The Container Store // $19.99

Happy Holidays, y'all!
