Two years ago, I forgot to fill Chris’s stocking. I just forgot.  He does the girls stockings and I get all the gifts and I felt awful. Never again! I like to fill it with his favorite treats (inca corn and beef jerky haha) and then a few little things, too!


1. Water Bottle: $18 to keep your water cold all day long!

2. Smart Plug: $8 so they can voice control everything

3. Rose Quartz Facial Roller: $20 I roll this over my face every morning and it’s so soothing and great for inflammation and puffiness!

4. AirPod Case: $14 so their favorite thing can become their even MORE favorite thing

5. Game of Phones: $10 a scavenger hunt within your phones–what could be more fun!?

6. Bro Mask: $28 made extra large to fit a man’s face and extra cooling to repair skin

7. Pencil Case: $28 for your little artiste!

8. Love Handle Phone Loop: $9 my favorite little handle that attaches to the back of any phone

9. Lip Sleeping Mask: $22 to slather on every night for the pucker-iest lips!

10. Ankle Socks: $12 for the cutest peek-a-boo!

11. Tile Slim Bluetooth Tracker: $23 so he can stop losing his wallet every day

12. Indoorsy Keychain: $10 it’s a lifestyle, really.

13. Embellished Velvet Mask: $24  are cool, beautiful masks the new socks?! I think so!

14. Silk Pillowcase: $23 I sleep on a silk pillowcase every night and it’s so good for hair and skin

Almost daily I get asked what I would call my home style. I don’t like to box myself in, but I definitely lean Modern Traditional with an emphasis on comfort when it comes to our home. This especially came up when I shared our Powder Bath Reveal on the blog. I think it changes slightly […]
