Killing two birds with one stone today and sharing some great gift ideas for the home & hostess as well as a few wedding registry must haves! I know we are getting down to the wire before Christmas but I made it easy for you last minute shoppers! All gifts are from Macy's, Nordstrom or Bed Bath & Beyond, so you can stop by your nearest location to shop!

1. personalized cutting board - I love anything personalized, from jewelry to home decor! This cutting board makes a great gift! (under $100)

2. candles - The holidays are the best time to gift a candle, in my opinion! I think they have such a homey, cozy feeling about them. I love the larger 3-wick size candles in yummy scents like sugar cookie!

3. Picture Frame - I know there are a million frames out there, but I really love the sentimental ones, like this one that tells 'our love story' for the newly engaged or newly married couple! I also love this one for your BFF or this one for a family member

4. kitchenaid mixer - Dying for one of these so I can start baking like a professional ;)

5. Faux fur throw blanket - I love this blanket & all of the soft shades it comes in! This blanket would be so cozy draped over a chair or the end of a bed.

6. stemless wine glasses - lots of people have wine glasses, but how many have stemless wine glasses that also happen to be festive? I love the hold touches on these & the price (under $50!)

7. serving dish - fill a serving dish with your favorite snacks or dessert & bring it as a hostess gift. Leave the dish at the end of the night!

8. coffee table book - I think this is such a great gift idea! I love the gorgeous photos that come along with all of these books. 

9. crystal vase - a pretty vase is always a good gift idea. Bonus points if you fill it with flowers! (under $25!)

10. Unexpected Appliance - Lots of households have the basic appliances & electrics but how about gifting something unexpected like an electric kettle or a citrus juicer?

This is my last post until after Christmas so I want to wish you all the HAPPIEST, MERRIEST, MOST RELAXING Christmas weekend!!! 
I'll be back with posts next week :)
