My Favourite Things + Holiday Gift Ideas

The holidays are just around the corner, and I'm here to share a few of my favourite holiday gifts, based off of items that I love all year round and think are incredibly practical for any gal on your list!

The first is, of course, my beloved Daniel Wellington watch.  I honestly can't say enough good things about this baby, and have re-fallen in love with it since switching up the leather band.  Now instead of the rich brown St. Andrews watch strap, I'm loving the moody black Sheffield strap - especially paired with the gold details on the face of the watch.  I would definitely recommend gifting one of these gorgeous watches to a lady on your list, especially if she has small wrists and struggles with finding a watch that fits.  If you're thinking about a Daniel Wellington watch, use code 'Holidays_lapetitenoob' to get 15% off your entire order - plus free worldwide shipping!

If you follow me on Instagram, you know how much I love a good breakfast tray.  One of my favourite weekend rituals is loading up a tray with an espresso, some breakfast and a few fresh flowers and keeping it in bed with me until noon.  Breakfast trays are so multi-functional, and can be used to help decorate a coffee table or a bar cart (both of which I do when I'm not using the trays in bed.)  The trays are relatively inexpensive, but still luxury item that not many people would think to buy for themselves, making them to perfect gift!  Here are some of my favourite places to shop:

West Elm:  My first breakfast tray was from West Elm, and it's still one of my favourites.  Their trays are quite small, so they're great for decorating small spaces or for preparing an espresso and cookies for one.

Chapters Indigo: The gold breakfast tray that you see from the photo above is from Chapters, and it's become my favourite.  This particular tray is a tiny bit bigger than the West Elm version, making it a bit more practical for breakfast in bed.

Crate and Barrel: The sky-blue tray that you see in the photo is from Crate and Barrel, and it's definitely the largest of the three by far!  I use this tray in bed when I'm preparing breakfast and coffee for both Brian and it also fills out a coffee table nicely.

My gift-giving technique around the holidays is to share my favourite things with the ones I love most.  What are some of your favourite things to give as gifts?

  1. I actually love giving people books. Its my way of saying that I appreciate them. Specially when the book helps them grow as a person once they've read it.

    Anyways I've also nominated you for "The Versatile Award" - check out my post if you fancy taking part :)

    1. So sweet, I'm so glad that you've found me recently, and have nominated me!

      Books are such a great gift idea!

  2. I have the same Daniel Wellington watch and I never take it off. It's the best!
    Also I love your breakfast treys.. I need to invest in some. What's better than breakfast in bed?!
