|Large Assortment Decorated Autumn, Fall, Leaves,Pumpkin Spiced Latte, Plaque Assorted Gift Box ($50)|
First up is The Tailored Cookie's beautifully decorated shortbread cookies. I wasn't even looking for cookies when I stumbled upon these babies but the fall assortment caught my eye. The detail of these cookies are incredible and the shop owner makes all sorts of cookies for different occasions (she also does custom orders for you creative types). I would, personally, feel guilty about eating such a work of art but I'm thinking I'll buy them, stare at them for a while, take several pictures of them to post to social media and then give them as a gift so someone else can do my dirty work.
|Personalized Casserole Dish ($45)|
I love a personalized touch both for myself and for gift-giving and I had intended on buying this casserole from Chic Monogram for my friend's wedding. Unfortunately I procrastinated and she got a gift card instead (it's the thought that counts, right?). I can still get a jump on Christmas shopping and I do feel like the shop's abundance of personalized home and office products make for really thoughtful gifts. Oh, there are quite a few items I want for myself but first thing's first! I've been eying this customized basketball sticky note cube for my son's coach.
|Note Cubes with Sticky Adhesive 700 Sheets ($24)|
Speaking of holidays, we usually travel back east to visit family for Thanksgiving which means plane travel, of course. Which means germs, of course. (There is not enough Airborne in the world!) I don't remember what I was looking for when I found the Scough but I'm so happy I did. They're basically scarves that filter out cooties and they're way more stylish than SARS masks! (I'm partial to the infinity scarf designs myself!) I will be investing in these gems for the whole family before we board any kind of mass transit.
