2013 Em for Marvelous Gift Guide: Bright Gifts

9 December 2013

John and I finished off most of our Christmas shopping over the weekend, with just a few goodies and some stocking stuffers to pick up this week. In case you’re still checking things off your list, too, here are a few of my brightest suggestions!


A. Colorblock double-strand necklace ($42) | Bright and colorful with jeans and a tee.
B. Letterpress Alabama camellia print ($25) | My Mom gets the credit for discovering these beauties! So fun to build a collection of states to which you have a connection.
C. Merry Christmas Y’all pillow ($15) | Southern and merry.
D. Lola sunglass cake ($22) | I think this case would make me smile every time I pulled it out of my bag.
E. Pieces and patterns wall calendar ($25) | So beautiful you’d want to frame each month when the year’s over.
F. Halcyon print ($35) | Gorgeous and girly colors.
G. Molly Blue cosmetic bag ($24) | Just big enough for weekend essentials!
H. Floral pillow cover ($48) | Bright and beautiful, and less than half the price of similar options from Society Social.
I. Dotted napkins ($5 each) | A perfect set for everyday use.
J. Buffalo check iPhone case ($35) | A little expensive, but I love the pattern.
K. Mason jar soap dispenser ($24) | I know I put this on last year’s guide, but it’s too good not to include again!
L. Pool confetti note set ($18) | So pretty! I’m actually planning to try my hand at DIY-ing these, though…
M. Prinstagram gift card (varies) | For the person who has everything… printable memories!

Which is your favorite?

P.S. 2012 and 2011 bright gifts.

Hi Em,
I’m loving your gift guide posts (as I also share a lot of your style). Loving ‘A’ here, the necklace, great to get some ideas. And I agree, with jeans and a white tee it would look great. Happy holidays, and congratulations on becoming an Aunty.

Emily, if you end up DIY-ing the confetti notecards, I fully hope to see a post about it and photos of the process and final product! :) One of my favorite things to make are my own cards, and I have never considered a design like this, but now I’m inspired! xoxo
