People who receive gifts from me in real life should stop reading this post right now. Spoilers ahead!
I just got my winter West Elm catalog in the mail and was flipping through it while I sat shivering under an afghan (It was in the 40s outside! hooray!) and mourning the Rangers' World Series pitching meltdown. I got super excited when I saw the new Monogram Shop, and the awesome prices that will let me give wonderfully personal (and affordable) gifts this year. I can't believe it's time to Christmas shop, but I always start early and am excited to get my friends and family something they'll appreciate.
Here are some of my favorites:
The pattern and size of these cosmetic bags make them really practical, but still special. Plus, they're less than half the price of Vera Bradley and (I think) more sophisticated. The zipper cases would be great for makeup, as well, and storing small items like phone chargers while traveling.
A monogrammed iPad/Kindle/laptop case would be well received among my friends, and all three options are under $25.
I am so in love with this monogrammed piggy bank speaker - wouldn't it be a cute baby gift?
The catalog had all kinds of other items like cutting boards and dinnerware that aren't online yet, and I'll definitely be checking them all out in store before Christmas.
