The Gift Of Giving | Sugar Paper Holiday

Oh Christmas, you are almost here! I couldn't be more excited for you to arrive. The weather forecast predicts we'll be having a cold & cozy day...I am so looking forward to spending it with the ones I love. 

Like most children, as a little girl, I couldn't wait to see what goodies Santa had brought. Nowadays, although I do look forward to seeing what might be under the tree, I find myself most excited to watch my loved ones open their gifts. Especially this year, as I have a few extra special surprises ❤️

Another part of Christmastime I've grown to adore is gift wrap. I  l o v e  finding wrapping paper that fits the personality of the loved one I'm shopping for. I absolutely fell in love with Sugar Paper's line of gift wrap at Target this year - I was able to find wrapping paper perfect for every gift I'm giving. As you might be able to tell, this pink polka-dotted one was my favorite :)

Because I love sending & receiving mail, I sent out these gifts to a few friends as little Christmas surprises on their doorsteps. These beautiful Anthropologie monogram ornaments provided the perfect way to personalize them.

I actually picked up these sweet winter greeting cards from the Sugar Paper Los Angeles shop a couple months ago. I love how well they ended up coordinating with the gift wrap.

Wishing you the most magical Christmas morning - just 3 days away! What is your favorite gift you're giving this year? ❤️

Holiday Loves & Ornament Giveaway

Happy Holidays! I'm so thrilled this time of year has arrived. I've been enjoying the cooler weather, indulging in seasonal baking, and of course gift shopping! With Christmas only 9 days away, there are just a few more items on my list and last minute preparations to begin. I also plan on finding some time to sit down to watch The Holiday - would it really be this time of year without watching it?

If you know me, you might know that I'm absolutely in love with love ❤️ As this time of year is all about spreading love, here are a few things that have made my heart particularly full this season:

Holiday Loves

My little sparkly Christmas tree decorated with tiny heart ornaments
Snowflake-shaped marshmallows with hot chocolate
A brisk breeze through the window that only this time of year brings
Finding the perfect gift for someone you love & the anticipation of watching them open it
A fire in the fireplace
The N'sync Christmas album (of course)
Late night baking 

In the spirit of the holidays, I'm so excited to give away this adorable heart-shaped ornament (nearly everything is better when it's heart-shaped, don't you think?!)  To enter, leave a comment sharing what you love about this time of year. I can't wait to hear!
