I’ve just returned home after a whirlwind 8 day trip to Miami and Costa Rica. It’s so nice to be back in the city! I’ve spent the last few days wandering around my ‘hood – admiring all of the festive wreaths and lights. I really want to go ice skating at The Standard hotel and enjoy hot cocoa at The Plaza. What are some of your favorite Christmas traditions in the city? Do tell! I won’t have time to do shop in stores this year, so I’m ordering everything online (which is better anyway!) I wanted to share a few of my favorite gifts that I’ll be giving to loved ones this year. I’m giving my sister this cozy Eberjey nightshirt and Ugg slippers. I’m giving my best friend Chrissy Teigen’s Cravings book (there are so many yummy recipes inside.) I’m giving my mom this frame with a special picture from this past summer. I’m giving my aunt this beautiful Aerin perfume set and my cousins these lip glosses as little stocking stuffers. Other gifts I have my eye on for friends are this book, these PJs and this easy hoodie. You can also check out my SHOP pages for more inspiration and past gift guides here. It’s hard to believe that Christmas is only 2 weeks away!
