Oh Santa..Where are you...

Thursday, December 17, 2009

It's that time where you are trying to find that perfect gift.  Man, sometimes it is so hard.  I think women are easy.   I tell my husband you can never go wrong with a good handbag (a.k.a Chanel) or a piece of jewelery ;} wink wink {;  I have a hard time finding that perfect something though for the men in my life.  Something that is unique yet that they will get good use out of.  So I go to the ole' tried and true gift guides that pop up this time of year.

Here are some of my favorites...

My sister's and my all time favorite magazine was Domino.  Sadly it went out of business this past spring but and new version has come out called LonNy Mag.  You can view it at www.Lonnymag.com
They have a great gift guide OR buy the magazine and give it as a gift...love those kind..they last all year.

I found this awesome website through LonNy that is very 20's, Flapper, East Village inspired called  www.patchnyc.com.  Perfect if you are looking for a unique, luxurious present.  THEIR WEBSITE IS WAY TOO COOL!

Oprah always has the gift department covered.  Check out her great list.  She has  food, stocking stuffers, art work, clothes and more.  I love this photo by www.allpopart.com that has been Andy Warhol-ized.  It would be cute for a favorite pet!   You can also do something similar on canvas through your local Costco.


Cool Mom Picks has some good stuff. I love how they list it everything $, $$ or $$$. They also have some coolly worded titles like "For Your Twilight-Infatuated Niece" or "For Your Sister and Best Friend who's a Million Miles Away" (like mine, sniff sniff )

Hope these help. 
Oh P.S. Neiman's is offering free Rush shipping and gift wrap with code HURRY.  You can never go wrong there!

Merry. Merry. Merry...I am worn out!

This has been the week of parties and I am exhausted so I am going to put the whole week in one post. Wednesday night we had my husband client apprecitaion party at Franklin Loan Center. We hosted about 300 people. Ruth Chris did the food and we served beer and wine. I was in charge of the decorations. We did LOTS of red roses, crystals and candles and the tables looked great. A girlfriend Kelly of mine did these crystals on her table for her birthday and it looked amazing. You can get flowers delivered in bulk from Costco. This is the third party I have done this for and every time they have turned out fantastic. You have to order them the week before, on a certain day, for the flowers to be delivered fresh. I got 200 long stem red roses for about $150. Its a great deal. If you need bulk flowers check it out, (make sure to read shipping info though) not a lot of people know about it.

Friday night we had the employees party for FLC.  It was a great time too.  Walter and I are so grateful for everyone that works at Franklin without them we would not have the company that we do.

Everything looks cool at night with all the lights ;)

Today I was at the Sacred Heart Tea selling LLB stuff.  It was lots of fun.  There were about 600 people there and some really great vendors too!  A few of them were Ashley Hackshaw from www.Lilblueboo.blogspot.com, Lisa Walker from www.ellebows.blogspot.com, two sweet sisters Amy and Cara who own She She on El Paseo, Allison Hanlon Clothing and the ladies that own www.happychickadee.com which has darling things too!  If you have a chance check out these blogs and website.  Everyone has great things..I am adding some pictures and then off to bed...12 more days will Christmas...and I haven't even done any of my shopping ahhhhh....

Christmas Bucket for $18 perfect for hostess gifts!

Merry Christmas, Lily's Laundry
