As you can see here, I’ve hopped on the leather sweatpants bandwagon, and it has been a delicious decision that takes wearing pajamas in public to a whole new level. (I splurged a bit on the pair shown here, but this version is well under 100 bucks!)

SO many fun parties and events at this time of year… I love a good festivity and am excited to have a few celebrations on our upcoming calendar. We’re going to a German Christmas celebration later today, and the menu is full of authentic dishes – including something called fire punch!
As much as we rely on bringing a bottle of wine or bundle of flowers to our kind hosts when we come for a visit, I also appreciate the opportunity to surprise and delight with something just a bit more unexpected, you know?
Check out this week’s episode of S&P TV for a collection of some clever hostess gifts that will make sure you get invited back again and again. :)
Many of the goodies featured here are from Smeeks in Phoenix, but check out my round-up below for more shopping options!
Shop the Video // Potted herb plants, Vintage trivet, Pineapple or other fresh fruit, Quirky corkscrew, Candy playing cards, Printed paper straws, Pink Himalayan salt, Dark chocolate (fair trade & organic, please!)
And a few extra ideas…
P.S. – I’ve got a whole Pinterest board devoted to this very topic, so feel free to follow along there as well!
Feels like I’m posting way out of season with the bare arms and bright sunnies here, but these photos were taken just last week at our Thanksgiving Day celebration at the beach!

Lots of shopping going on over the past several days, and I’d say most of us are in the midst of gearing up for some serious holiday gifting, yes?
Now that we’re back from our Thanksgiving trip to the West Coast, I’m diving right in to the holiday season as a style expert on the T.J. Maxx and Marshalls holiday gifting hotline happening this week!
Starting today, you can give us a buzz at the number below and my fellow Gifters and I will be dishing up tons of great advice for all of your holiday shopping needs. I can’t wait to help our callers pick out the perfect presents for everyone on their list, and am already so inspired to share how the goodies I’ve found at T.J. Maxx and Marshalls have helped me wrap up my own Christmastime shopping for the year (Hooray)!
If you’re seeking a little gift-giving guidance, you can give us a call at 1-855-404-GIFT (4438) anytime between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. EST, from Tuesday through Friday (December 3rd-6th), and in the meantime – we’ll be looking forward to helping you pick out some fun presents very soon!
P.S. – I ended up snapping up these tall brown boots and this fur collar (both on clearance!) during a mini Cyber Monday shopping spree yesterday… I’m dying to know – Did you grab any goodies for yourself?
