With so many of us planning more intimate holiday moments at home this year, I decided to put together a fun collection of great gift ideas to help celebrate.  Each item here represents something I own and personally recommend or one that I've previously gifted to others and they simply loved.  You can never go wrong with something you love and has gotten great reviews.  Let's gift it!

This decanter is absolutely gorgeous and makes for a wonderful item your friends or family will reach for on those "let's stay in" nights all year long.  The monogram gives it character and is special touch that she of us can't get enough of, haha.  I won't name any names.

Speaking of monograms, personalized gifts have my whole heart and are something I could never tire of.  If you have a friend like me, then I am going to say he or she will love these next two picks.  This charcuterie board is so simply yet elegant and stunning.  It's definitely a fantastic choice for that newly engaged couple or friends moving into a new home.  This welcome mat is also one new (or longtime) homeowners will want!

A great set of glasses always fits and is always a welcome addition to any home.  This set is so pretty and looks beautiful in use and on display.  I love toasting to something special with them as well as breaking them out for a quiet night in.

So, when it comes to cozy at home, nothing says relaxing in luxury as much as these cashmere booties.  They make the perfect gift for your mom or sister and a lovely way to say "From Me to Me"!  

The holidays are one time of year when I hardly ever turn my stereo off.  Yes, I'm that girl playing Christmas music on Nov. 1st, haha!.  If you know someone who loves their music too, this speaker system is a great gift option.  Bose makes the most incredibly state-of-the-art sound system that music aficionados adore and no one wants to be without once they've heard them playing.

Honestly, the options for gifting are practically endless but we all know that choosing the "exact right gift" can sometimes feel overwhelming.  Before you stress, give these reminders some thought.  The first thing to keep in mind is that it is the sentiment that counts. Cliché sounding, maybe but true nonetheless.  Friends and family love that we have thought of them and that is what matters most.  And, to make your choosing even easier, I find that if I think of what I love most about the recipient and what makes them special to me, it guides me in the right direction of finding the exact right fit to express how special they are.  Hope that helps make deciding a little easier for you!

If anything has caught your eye, I've linked everything above for you to shop in thumbnails below.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I have loved picking them out.  Have a merry Monday!
