The holidays often mean that we, as mothers, find ourselves busied with the tasks associated with the season. The baking, the decorating, the hustling and bustling. There's a buzz everywhere you go, a touch of magic in the crisp air. As I've gotten busier over the past couple years since having my two girls, I've realized how easy it is to sometimes forget ourselves or literally have no answer but "uninterrupted sleep for one night" when asked what it is that is on *our* wish list. So whether you're shopping for yourself, sending gift ideas to your significant other, or searching for the perfect gift for that hard to shop for aunt or girlfriend, we've put together a gift guide of some of our favorite items. These are all places that we've shopped at and grown to love, and we hope you do too!
Perfect for: your mom + dad, grandparents, and the person who has everything.
Whether you’re wanting something small and classic or something larger and statement like, Le Papier Studio has exactly what you need for the perfect gift this year.

Our favorites are the Heirloom Silhouette Ornaments, The Tiny Charm Necklaces, and the Silhouette Tie Bars + Money Clips. Since all of Le Papier Studio’s pieces are crafted with the silhouettes of your loved ones these are destined to become family classics that are handed down generation to generation.
2 - Seek and Swoon

3 - True Botanicals
Perfect for: you, your sister, your best friend
I am horrible at sticking to a routine when it come to beauty products. That's until I discovered True Botanicals! I have become obsessed with their products not only because they are so good to my skin but they are easy and quick to use...major mom bonus! They are made with the best of organic ingredients - I will never ever put on another product on my face. Watch for their Cyber Monday Sale! These amazing products rarely go on sale so this is your chance to scoop them up!

7 - Candelles
Perfect for: your best friend, co-worker, sister-in-law and neighbor.
There’s nothing more perfect for the season than a beautiful candle. Hand-poured by a small team in Pennsylvania this isn’t your typical candle. The scents are delectable + divine (my personal favorite is the Peppermint Bark, it’s absolutely amazing) and since it’s 100% pure soy wax it has a phenomenal burn time and burns beautifully.
Candelles has an amazing offer just for Le Papier’s gift guide! Use code “HOLIDAY25” to receive 25% off any regular priced candles now until the end of December!
8 - Farmgirl Flowers
Perfect for: your babysitter, boss, hairdresser and yourself!
Farmgirl Flowers is my go-to choice when I need to send flowers. Their service is incredible and their arrangements are breathtaking. They make a total statement when the recipient opens her delivery and is taken aback by the beauty and unique design of these arrangements. With very reasonably priced overnight shipping across the United States it’s easy to see why Farmgirl Flowers is fast becoming a fan favorite.
Perfect for: you, your college age daughter, your on top of everything best friend
I am a write it all down type of girl. If it needs to get done it needs to be written down. I love using a planner to keep all business related task organized. We use iCalendar for all family activities but when I need my paper planner, I love how simple and easy Emily Ley planners are. I use the daily myself. One additional bonus? They are oh so pretty so I love to carry it in my purse or display it on my white desk.
May all your holiday shopping be joyful + merry!
