Behind The Butter

ELR Holiday Gift Guide



In honor of Cyber Monday, here’s a list of my top gift ideas this year. If you’re a manic online shopper like I am, you’ll hopefully appreciate this holiday and this list. I know I’ll be doing some holiday shopping today…and probably some baby shopping, too, if I can find great deals on some of the items we need for the nursery. We’re actually moving to a new house a few towns over this week and I’m so excited that I will soon have a nursery to decorate!

I’ve been able to hold off buying any baby items thus far since I knew that we were moving and didn’t want to lug anything from the old house to the new house that I didn’t have to. Soon it will be game on. I can’t wait to show you guys some before and after photos when we take them!

Anyway, happy Cyber Monday! I hope you can find some goodies for loved ones {and yourself!} today!

Melody Joy Organic Cotton Cowl. I have one and love it! It’s so warm and cozy!! $54

INA 2.0 FashionABLE Scarf. Handmade in Ethiopia and provides employment to at-risk women. $32 {shop TODAY at get 20% off your order + free shipping for Cyber Monday! Use the code “CYBERSALE2013” at checkout}

Fresh Lemon Sugar Perfume. This is my favorite scent. It’s clean, crisp and always puts me in a good mood. A great gift for sisters or best friends! $20-38

Noonday “Gatsby” Necklace. I love this long, unique necklace! It’s always a big hit at my trunk shows. $42

Colorful Geometric Pottery Rings. These are great and perfect stocking stuffers. I love mine and wear it all the time. Love that they are waterproof so you don’t have to take it off when you wash your hands. $24

Kindle Fire. I couldn’t live without my Kindle. I got it for Christmas a few years ago and it’s still one of my favorite gifts that I’ve ever received. I owe you guys a book post soon – I’ve been reading some great ones lately! $119

Stella & Dot Sanibel Necklace. This is gorgeous! It’s a little on the pricey side but I love that it’s reversible and can be worn a few different ways. $79

TempleSpa Quietude Spray. This is a calming aromatherapy spray that you mist on your sheets and pillows before bed. I have some and use it every night. It’s part of my sleep ritual…that and an eye mask, that is. $30

TempleSpa Candle. These are gorgeous, long burning candles that smell divine. We have one and Adam loves it! $38

Lisa Leonard Tiny Twig Necklace. I love Lisa Leonard and this necklace is stunning! I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t love this special piece of jewelery. $44 {but on sale right now for Cyber Monday!}

Wooden Ipad Stand for the Kitchen. A great way to cook from recipes on your ipad! Plus, it looks so cute and is a beautiful addition to any kitchen. I love mine! $39

Breville Compact Juice Fountain Juicer. I love this beautiful compact juicer. It’s a total steal at $89, too!

Emily Ley Simplified Planner. Now here’s something that keeps me sane. I have mine out and open before me every single day. Couldn’t get through without it. I love staying organized and love all of Emily Ley’s beautiful paper products! $56

Noonday “Take My Hand” Gloves. Does it get any more classic than the gift of red mittens? Soft and pretty, these are hand-knit in Peru by our skilled group of artisans there. It’s a gift that gives back! $48

Wusthof 12 Piece Knife Set. We got these knives as a wedding gift and absolutely love them. I highly recommend them as a really nice gift for foodie friends! $149

Alice Waters Simple Food Cookbook. This is my go-to cookbook right now. I’m loving the simple seasonal recipes. Everything out of it has been great – especially the bean and butternut squash soup! $25

This list contains a couple Amazon referral links as well as links to my personal Noonday Collection shop and my mom’s Stella & Dot shop. All opinions/reviews are always my own. Thank you for supporting this site!

    You can never have too many cookbooks as far as I’m concerned! I’m definitely going to check that one out. And the wooden iPad stand! You’ve just increased the length of my wishlist. 😉

    You should have considered the blog title Eat Live Move.
    Any chance of a kitchen tour at your current place? It looks so cute when it pops up in photo backgrounds.
    Best of luck with your move!

    By the way – the Lisa Leopard tiny twig necklace actually starts at $54, then discounted. I was in the middle of buying it at $44 plus 25% off and then in the middle of it, it switched up. Like they realized the error or something. Just thought I would let you know.

    The planner looks to be the bee’s knees, but it’s sold out for the year! Have you stumbled into anything similar that could get me through 2014? I’ve been looking for something just like this.

    Already on the waiting list for 2015. 🙂 Thanks for the recommendations!

    I’m so excited to hear what books you have been reading! My sister just got a Kindle for an early Christmas present from my parents (had to take advantage of a Black Fri deal) and she’s a fan so far. I remember when you first mentioned those gorgeous pottery rings and have been contemplating them ever since. I’m definitely thinking about making a purchase from there for a gift this year!
