Remember that bejeweled initial clutch I made a few weeks ago? Here’s another great idea for a personalized clutch: this nameplate wallet from I Spy DIY.

Remember that post about gifts for the host? Love this addition from House of Earnest if you’re crafty and creative–DIY monogrammed towels/napkins.

The Nailasaurus never disappoints. We’re crazy for this beautiful, festive holiday nail art:


Beautiful DIY Frosted Mason Jars from A Beautiful Mess. We love this idea–it’s cheap, it’s easy, and you can wash the frosted look off the jars when you want to use them for something else.

Did you wait until the last minute to shop? You did, didn’t you? Never fear, The Budget Babe has some good ideas for last minute gifts you can get in store at Marshall’s. We especially love the cookbook, gourmet vinegar, socks, and stylish board games.

And if any of that last minute shopping is for a fella’, here are some manly gift wrapping ideas from Paper & Stitch.

Check out these DIY fabric gift envelopes from Design Sponge. The possibilities of contrasting fabrics and threads to create unique looks are endless!

Muffin top baking cups. This is too funny. Kudos to Fashion Foie Gras for finding them.


XO Jane has given us 17 reasons why we should never stop reading print books. #7 makes a good point.

Have you heard of the beauty brand Mark’s? Neither have we but this round-up of celebrities and their winter lip colors mentions it twice. At $11 a pop, we’re intrigued.

Have a great weekend, and good luck if you’re still shopping!
