It should go without saying that we aren’t the type to brave the crowded lines for Black Friday sales. I mean….can you imagine us?! As far as we’re concerned, no flatscreen TV is worth breaking a sweat or getting elbowed in the face for.
Instead, our typical holiday shopping purchases take place from under a blanket with a mug of tea or flute of champagne in hand. I guess you can say it’s where we’re most inspired. Which is why we wanted to create another gift guide so you too can do the least while doing the most. You’re welcome.
[ THE ] RAINBOW EDIT
We’ve heard that every time a rainbow item is purchased, an angel gets its wings. Just saying.
[ THE ] TRAVEL EDIT
Carry-on items that double as survival mechanisms.
[ THE ] SURVIVING NOT THRIVING EDIT
Our life motto. Not sorry about it.
[ THE ] COZY EDIT
Who’s cozier, Joanna or a hibernating bear? We’ll leave it up for discussion.
[ THE ] ROBERTA APPROVED EDIT
When Roberta approves, the world takes a deep cleansing breath. *exhales*
[ THE ] CHAMPAGNE EDIT
“A life without champagne is not a life worth living.” -Anonymous. (Okay…it’s me, Clea.)
[ THE ] BEAUTY EDIT
Psssst, we have a secret. There’s nothing wrong with buying a gift set for a loved one, only to unbox it, grab the item you want, and wrap the remaining items in a separate gift bag.
Or maybe that’s just us? Alright, just be the better person and gift the whole set. They’ll love it.
[ THE ] FASHION EDIT
What we love when we’re not wearing sneakers, black leggings, and our rotation of THE shirts and/or hoodie. Style icons, basically.
[ THE ] HUSBAND EDIT
Because he deserves something, too.
[ THE ] KID EDIT
We prefer gifts that don’t take hours to put together, make our lives easier, and look good in the house at the same time.
*Oh, and this seems like an appropriate time to shamelessly plug our NEW BOOK (!!!!), The Home Edit: A Guide to Organizing and Realizing Your House Goals.
You can preorder it here. Let’s be honest…the fact that we finished writing this book is a Christmas/Hanukkah miracle in itself.
Xo, Clea + Joanna
