Holiday Gift Guide – Lil Hoot’s Sarah Crawford

My second gift guide feature is from the super talented Sarah Crawford of Lil hoot blog and Lil Hoot parties! I’ve had the distinct pleasure of attending a number of Sarah’s perfectly executed soirees and I can tell you this, she DOE NOT disappoint on any level. See her amazing Sip and See gathering here.


for little boys:

my handsome nephews would look awesome in these skull caps from Crewcuts.

for wee ones – boys and girls:

I could not resist these matchbox mice for C & P’s stockings this year!  They love putting things in boxes and carrying them around so I think they will just adore their pet mice.

for little girls:

love-loving the doodlebugz crayon aprons.

for sister/friend:

My personal fave- the kate spade idiom bracelets.  I’m a sucker for something with a special sentiment and that’s classic kate spade style!

Also, love this Bobbi Brown party shimmer compact.  I have lots of beautiful sparkly people in my life {that like to party} so this is the perfect gift!

I’m also surrounded by people with a sense of humor that would appreciate this Jonathan Adler pill-popper keychain as much as I do.  Maybe if I really like you, i’ll even slip an ambien in there.  juuuuuust kidding . . . or not.

for anyone:

Bananagrams!  those close to me know i am self-proclaimed scrabble dork!  i played with my dad growing up and now try not to let WWF take over my life.  You can imagine my excitement when I was day-drinking at nantucket Christmas stroll last weekend and beside the monkeys playing quarters was a somewhat civilized group playing word-game, bananagrams.  worship!  I purchased the sack full of letters before i got on the ferry to gift to C & P.  C totes around the banana everywhere she goes and loves naming the letters.  so i highly suggest this game as a stocking stuffer for young and old alike.
Also, if anyone in your life has not had the privilege of viewing friday night lights– the complete season is the best gift you could ever give.  a real-live game changer.  it is the BEST!

I feel almost as strongly about Mad Men.  I’m jeally of anyone who gets to cozy up and watch some don draper for the first time this winter. 

And i have a love/hate r’ship with Breaking Bad – but i can promise you this – the dudes in your life will love it.  it is sick and twisted and surprisingly enjoyable.

3 cheers for turvis tumblers!  I think pretty much everyone could use this shatterproof drink ware.  Add a monogram for that special touch.  BONUS: made in the US of A!

Gift for someone special in your life:  
I’m always looking for that gift with the extra something personal – usually a clever way to showcase a pic – this year I’m loving these Erin Condren personalized lucite trays.

Another somethin’ somethin’ i like to give a lot of are movie tickets {teachers get these – who needs to escape reality more than they do?  HA}  and also I love to sponsor an animal in someone’s name at best friends animal society.

 You can choose the exact pet that the donation will go towards and their stories are so touching and heartwarming.  It’s a special way to give back that means a lot to me as my pups are spoiled rotten – A wonderful way to spread the love!
