BLWB Gift Guide

I really love shopping for others and trying to find that perfect gift. I compiled a little list that could include something for someone on your list, or could at least inspire you to think of the perfect gift.

Gifts for Healthy Living, Food, and Fitness Lovers

Gaiam Everything Fits Gym Bag

Thorlo Experia Running Socks
My friends Heidi and Ed bought me two pairs of these amazing running socks for my birthday this year, and they are perfect for long distance running. They keep my feet comfortable, dry, and blister-free. I even wore them when I ran my half marathon - a great decision!

UnderArmour Fleece Storm Full Zip Hoody
I already gave you my review, but I friggin' LOVE this jacket.

You see these in almost any picture of me working out. I LOVE the sparkle headbands, and I love that they stay on and don't move throughout my entire workout. 

The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook
My friend Jenn sent me this article about the author of Smitten Kitchen, who wrote what looks like an awesome cookbook! I browsed through her recipes on her blog, and if the book is similar, this book would be awesome!

Tin Roof Cutting Boards (a splurge gift for a special chef)

These unique designs and combinations of wood are gorgeous! A perfect addition to any kitchen.

Gifts for Almost Anyone

You can read here why I love our Nook, even though I love traditional books.

Puffer Vest

I'm not sure why, but I think these vests are SO cute!

I want to wear these all day.

Travel Kit (for that hard-to-shop-for guy in your life)

Harry & David Gift Boxes (for someone special who lives far away)

May it be a very happy holiday season of gift giving! 

What's on your shopping list this year? Suggestions?


  1. I love that cutting board, i have never seen one like that. oh and those pears, to die for. I would love some of those too

  2. i want one of those cutting boards! they are so beautiful! i wouldn't have to use the crap plastic ones from target i always use now :)

  3. Awesome gift ideas! I love that puffy vest!

    I am always a big fan of charitable gifts. One of my favs is glassybaby, which donates a portion of the proceeds to great organizations.

  4. I got all the shopping for my family done super quick this year and even offered to help my mom with some of her shopping since she's been so busy. I might try to knock some of that out today or see if I can find anything fitting.

  5. I love Smitten Kitchen! The icebox cake/cupcakes recipe she has is one of my fave easy desserts to make...except I don't use homemade chocolate wafers like she does :D.
