Gift Guide: What's on MY list?

So, y'all know that I post lust lists and gift guides all the time. All of the things I mention are things I really love, but still, those lists are a little different than things I would really ask for myself. 

I've missed a few days of posting within the past couple of weeks because my mom has been really sick. I went home to be with my parents for a little while. My mom is by far the most selfless person I know, and that's not me being biased. Even though she has been incredibly weak, she is still begging me to put together a Christmas list. That's the last thing she should worry about! 

Honestly, this is the first year I can ever remember when there's not one single material thing I really want. I think when you are reminded how precious life is, you're also reminded what's actually important, so I just haven't been thinking about things like shoes and bags lately. If I could have just one thing for Christmas, it would just be to have my Mom all better (I think we are on a road to recovery, by the way!).

But, there are still elves out there that are asking me over and over to make a list. So I've put together a little something to give them a few ideas. You know, just things that would look awfully nice under the Christmas tree. ;)

Cuyana Travel Bag Set // $95 (red, personalized with MSS)    |     Soft Sea Giclee Print // $30

Plum Pretty Sugar Robe // $65 (small - I love this set, too!)     |     Stud Earrings // $18


  1. I think the Cuyana Travel bag set it such a great choice - I have been lusting after the Cuyana tote bags, which are currently on my personal list.

    I hope that your Mom gets better, soon. Family is really the most important thing and I'm sure your Mom appreciates the time that you spent with her recently.

  2. Hoping your Momma is all better before Christmas! I am sure she is thankful to have you come home and see she is on the mend. Looks like you have put together a great list for Santa ;)

  3. Love those earrings and the price is on point! Sure hope your mom gets better soon - Cadence had it for an entire week and is just now finally getting over the fever and cough! Tis the season for colds I suppose. Prayers for your mom!

  4. Sorry to hear your Mom has been sick. Hopefully the road to recovery she is on is a short road and she will be better very soon! :)

  5. Prayers for your momma! Putting together a gift guide can be so hard once you realize you don't "need" anything...really realized that this year after I have been out on my own & working as a nurse. Have a great weekend!
