I hope you guys are starting to wind down your to do lists and getting excited for lots of good food tomorrow! As for me, I’m trying to figure out when I’m going to disconnect and when I’m going to make sure everything gets done – because there is a LOT to tell you all about this week!!
But before we start talking about sale roundups, I thought I’d get one of my favorite gift guide categories up: the best home and kitchen gifts! I also rushed to get this up pre-Black Friday, because a ton of these items (especially kitchen gadgets) are either already on sale or going on sale this weekend. Such a great time to knock out of a few gifts on your list this year at a discount!
Gift Guide for the Home
When in doubt, I love getting people cheese boards. Even if they already have one, who couldn’t use another pretty one to put out at parties?! I love this monogrammed wood board and this marble one that says “Gather.”
Le Creuset Pots and Pans
Okay I know, Le Creuset pots are really pricey, but my parents got me one on sale a few years ago and it is one of my favorite things they’ve ever gotten for me. I’m serious! I get so excited every time I make a big pot of soup now, because I get to use my Le Creuset dutch oven. Plus, now is the perfect time to buy because a TON of their pots and pans are on sale this weekend! Go go go!
Otherland recently sent me 3 of their candles to try out, and now we can’t stop burning them! We got Canopy, Tapestry, and Chandelier – and each one of them smells better than the last. But the best part is that you can get 10% off your first purchase with the code lakeshorelady! Between the gorgeous gift box, the pretty labels, and the amazing scents, this is the perfect gift for pretty much anyone on your list.
Umm duh, right?! Who wouldn’t want a cozy throw? I love this faux fur blanket, but this one and this one are great options, too. Plus this one is on sale right now! WOO!
If you’re looking for a more unique option, this water color blanket is my favorite that we own – and it’s made by my friend, Carly!
Even though I included another diffuser in my Gift Guide for Women, there are just so many pretty options right now! I have this one, but if I was getting a new one, I think I’d get one by Serene House. As for oils, I have this gift set and they’re great!
It can be a little tricky to get friends and family framed artwork, but this gold foil print of the Chicago skyline is just so lovely! I also found this map of the Chicago neighborhoods, this more colorful version, and this Wrigley print by Rifle Paper Co!
I’m a big fan of both gifting new kitchen gadgets for Christmas. Like the Instant Pot, for example! I’ve been hearing about how great they are for so long, but for some reason I haven’t purchased one yet. This is the perfect time for me to either snag one for myself on sale, or ask for one from my family. Along those same lines, I’ll keep an eye out for sales on Air Fryers, too!
