Making Merry Personalized Gifts

 I first wrote about May Designs (previously May Books) this summer, after I received one of their darling notebooks as a gift. Since then, I've been ordering them for gifts and was delighted to see they just came out with their holiday collection. Though I usually do a name or monogram, I thought it would be fun to create some seasonal books for friends....a pair of Naughty & Nice for making holiday lists.
A clean slate for those 2013 goals!!
La Plates has been a go to source for me for years, but they've added these holly, jolly ornaments this year. Deck the halls with a monogram or your choice of colors. 
I know you're probably thinking turkey this week if you're in the US, but it's never too early to order items that need a little lead time. Get online, then baste the turkey. That way you get to stay home on Black Friday...and enjoy family and leftovers!

I have also ordered May books, they are really darling and have so many fun options. The ornaments are so cute, what a nice little holiday something to bring a hostess too. Anything monogrammed...I love!

Wishing you a wonderful day Elizabeth as you prepare for Thanksgiving, gobble gobble:)

Fun! I don't think I can fit one more ornament on my tree but the notebooks are a cute idea! Wishing you a wonderful week of family fun!

Hi Elizabeth, I love a personalized gift and I think it's never too early to start shopping. Although I'm mostly thinking about flowers for Thursday - my mom asked me to take care of that detail for our family dinner at my parents' house. But there's always time to tap away on the laptop and get a few gifts checked off the lists - for both the naughty and the nice! Happy Thanksgiving week! XO

We think anything personalized shows that you've made an effort when shopping for gifts and those ornaments are darling!

Love ALL of these! I hope you are having fun with your mother!!

I saw Skyfall the other night and remembered that your son is a Bond fan - the Spy Museum in DC has an exhibit on Bond that just opened.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

I like your idea to stay home on black Friday and order on-line! These are ALL wonderful ideas. The naughty/nice theme is really fun and the ornaments are a GREAT gift idea!
