Favorite Gifts to Give {Favorites on the First}


Blog 2 today!!!

Is it already November 1st? Time to remove my Halloween decor, put up some Fall, and anticipate transitioning to Christmas. Wow! Time flies when you are having fun. I did get my magnolia garlands ordered this week.

Today, I am joining Alison (one of my favorite bloggers) at The Polohouse for Favorites on the First, Favorite Gift Ideas.

Personally, I have two favorite gifts to give. Candles and stationery are a couple faves of mine. Many are personal and easy to give.



I love to give candles for the holidays, specials days, and as hostess gifts. Scents really are a personal way to warm up a room.

My favorites to give are Japanese Quince by Seda France & the New Orleans candle by Low Country Luxe.



I have featured both candles in the past.

I also love to give stationery. I personally adore the lines by New Orleans native, Alexa Pulitzer. I always love to encourage others to write a personal note.
