Preppy Gifts for Her

Hello, dear friends.  I hope that you had a good week.  The weather here in the Big D has been nothing less than spectacular. I find my stroll jog lasting longer when the weather is cooperative, and I am listening to a good book.  This one has an interesting premise and is keeping my attention, which is quite an accomplishment these days.

The Mister and I checked out a few subdivisions yesterday.  We are now giving some thought to building a house.  We've got our docket full of Open Houses this weekend, so we shall see.

You know I love a good gift guide.  
It's even more fun to write one.  
So this is for all my preppy friends.
Are you listening Annie, Mary, Delaney, and Laurie?
This one's for you. 

I have a couple of these totes.
You can design your own bag.
I think I need this one.
It has my name all over it.

This too!

A great way to spot your black bag at the baggage claim.

For the traveling Prep.

These jams are perfect for me to bid 2020 goodbye.
It can't come fast enough as far as I'm concerned!

This reminded me of when my girls used to jump on their beds and sing five little monkeys jumping on the bed!

Whenever I visit Newport, my first stop is always the Kiel James Patrick store. 
I have yet to walk out of the store empty-handed.

I forgot to include this in my last post.

Love this!
I think I need to buy myself another a present.

Nothing says the holidays like plaid.

I need these.

Always an appreciated gift.

I finally resigned myself to the fact that we still have a long road ahead, so I have invested in some cute masks.

Btw... no one notices one's double chin when wearing a vibrant mask.  I know from experience.

Every year I buy myself one of these planners.
The hardest part is settling on which pattern to buy. 
And filling it in smackdab in the middle of a pandemic.

My latest Instagram posts.

Stay safe.

Until next time...

Shhh... don't tell Chili, but this little number is on its way.

  1. The ig post about the bookdrop made me laugh! I hope you have some luck with the open houses! Great preppy ideas. Love all the jewelry and the totes too.

  2. Cute ideas. I don't envy you in the house hunt, and especially not in a new build!

  3. Personalized gifts are the best! You have some great ones here.

  4. So many great gift ideas on here... a few I'd add to my own list!

  5. New build can be great! Just moved in Jan 2020, put a bunch into pool and backyard landscaping...just in time to find a respite from covid. It’s a development so fewer choices to make but plenty still to make it ours...bet you’d build a beauty!! Always enjoy the lists, those Amazon earrings added to my list!

  6. I love all of these! Thanks for sharing them =)
    Also, thank you for linking up today!

  7. Building a house ... now that would be exciting! I'm never going to do it again but I'd love to dispense 'helpful' advise will observing from afar! As usual I want everything in this gift guide. EVERYTHING!
    After getting our final landscape renovation invoice, my misters says we may not spend another dime this year. What?! Just call him Scrooge. I'm looking for work arounds. xo
