Favorite Little Things

I'm sure you're all way ahead of me here, but I have plans to finish up my Christmas shopping today, because it seems like September when it's actually December and I haven't left my house since Wednesday morning and all the world is discombobulated.

I've been keeping a list of some of my favorite things, and this seems like as good a time as any to share them. Most are little things I already have and enjoy every day.

All of them would make super-fun gifts, many are very affordable, AND....there's always the question of Amazon gift-cards and/or Christmas cash. :)

1// Amazingly cool science posters from the Volume 25 etsy shop
2// Origins Ginger Essence perfume - I wear this every day, no matter what. I'm obsessed.
3// Great, visual cookbook, like Share: The Cookbook that Celebrates our Common Humanity
4// Fair-trade jewelry from Noonday Collection - loving this Tesfanish tassel necklace

5// Thrift store mugs (this looks like a fun project if you find some plain white ones!)
6// Fair-trade, hand-woven scarf from fashionABLE - I've got my eye on the Assefa (plaid!)
7// Fancy vinegar or olive oil. (I get mine from our local shop, The Olive Branch.)
Subscription to Cooking Light - This is a staple around here.

9// Special dish soap, like Mrs. Meyer's - it's the little things!
10// Handmade blankets from Ten Thousand Villages. (There's a 30% off coupon on the site!)
11// Goodwill finds - My friends and I love Goodwill gifting! Think vintage bakeware, dishes, linens
12// L'Oreal Voluminous mascara - THE BEST! A great stocking stuffer, and it's on Amazon Prime

If you have any favorite little things, I'd love to hear about them in the comments.

Happy Saturday, Homies!

PS - In a complete coincidence, Noonday is hosting a giveaway for a $250 gift card right now on their blog, featuring some of mine and Stephanie Holden's favorite pieces! Jump over and enter!

  1. Pretty much finished my shopping, but did lots of this kind of buying! Today I focus on making food for the neighborhood gathering we are hosting on Monday night. It is clearly something new for this area. I just want them to feel comfortable and loved! Will you pray for that with me?

    1. I love that you're doing this! God's already on the details. The exact-right people will be there and you'll all walk away better for it! Good job, K! I'm praying now!

    3. THANKS!!!! I want to set the "standard" of easy and casual so that others "might" feel the joy of doing something as well!

    4. We had 4... FOUR...families come last night and they all stayed for 2.5 hours. As they left they all talked about how good it was to get together and meet! :-) For the God-win.......

  2. 1) I must have this ginger perfume, for obvious reasons 2) just shopped 10,000 villages today and lusted for those amazing blankets. Wish I'd known about that coupon!!

  3. Fun! Are you familiar with Soap Hope? They sell all kinds of soap, then use all proceeds to fund loans for women in poverty to start and run small businesses.
