Need a few more Christmas ideas?

Here are a few gift giving ideas for your decor loving friends and family and an idea for the kiddos that I couldn't resist sharing!

What about a home decor magazine subscription for that faithful design/HGTV follower? 

HGTV magazine is 10 issues for $15.  You can give a subscription as a gift, click on the gift subscription page to order for your loved one.  Keep in mind subscriptions usually take 6-8 weeks to get going.  In the meantime, you can purchase a copy at the store, wrap in a cute box and attach a tag that says "coming soon".

For the kids!!  I love paper ...journals, books, sketchbooks, newspapers, magazines, cards, hand-written notes.  I truly think penmanship and the written word is a lost art form.   I happened upon this site called Minted.  They have lots of paper products, but I especially love the personalized journals.  I am getting this one for Luke {don't tell him}...

You can not only personalize the picture but also the text boxes.  I am putting some of his favorite things that he would use this for ..words like invent, music, stuff, etc on the cover.  I am also using one of the boxes to put words that describe him like smart, funny, musical, inventive, etc. You can order them lined or unlined and you can also create a book "plate" on the inside cover.
For Olivia,  I am creating a sketch book.  She's my little artist and we love to sketch together.  Yes, we have five million sketch books and journals....but this one is different because it is uniquely hers. I love this design to put a big ole picture of her sweet face.

It's personalized and I think they will get a real kick out of seeing their face on something "published",  $16.00 each.

I love these pillows from They are made from linen and have a stitched detail.  The cross pillow is $26.99 and the heart pillow is $25.49.

Great books for your decor-minded friends and family.  Design Sponge by Grace Bonney from the blogosphere.  I love this book because there is plenty to pour over which includes home tours and tons of DIY projects, $24.00 from Barnes & Noble.

Patina Style by Brooke Giannetti and Steve Giannetti. Decor that is warm and worn yet timeless.  The Giannettis, creators of Velvet & Linen, show you how to recreate this style,  $25.50 at Barnes & Noble.

Saw this fun, yet simple store on a recent HGTV show's called Muji.  They have lots of home and organizational items.  I love these little wooden "sculpture" sets.  They have them for Tokyo, London, New York and Paris,  $17.95 thru their online USA store.

Artwork from 20X200 this site for original artwork and photography.  Here are some of my favorites by Jane MountJeremy Kohm and Carrie Marill.   It is very affordable and there are tons of choices from emerging artists.

Have some unique present ideas...share!!!  Happy Shopping!!
