Somehow this year I remembered how much I do not enjoy the scramble to get last minute gifts. My shopping was finished and the theme this year was very much about peace, tranquility and beauty + a big dose of comfort.

I thought I’d share a few of my favorite gifts to myself and from others ~ basically you’re shopping my family room, haha.

p.s. I was invited to partake in the Deck the Halls: Donna Karan Home  Pillow Challenge, so to see how a holiday minimalist decorates, my favorite holiday decoration and a quick peek into my family room that I’ve been slowly but steadily decorating, click over to my decor blog, MagicalMined.blogspot.com.

Details:
1. Ansel Adams and Georgia O’Keeffe, Carmel 1974 by Alan Ross
2. Teepee print and Horse print by Plumed
3. Eames: Beautiful Details
4. West Elm Mongolian Lamb pillow
5. Donna Karan Modern Classics Raw Diamond Pillow
6. Jeff Nixon Photography

Love that photo – so atmospheric. I am having a craze on photos at the moment, weve just got one of a LA scene,

I normally always get my Christmas shopping done pre-December, but this year I am behind schedule. I must admit, the shops are not quite as frantic as I remember, but I still prefer to shop earler. This is lovely selection, the Donna Karan pillow is positively dreamy.

Good evening and thank you for coming by to visit my post. I will look at the link that you provided for me, for I’m always open to a new book and passage way into MAGIC…I love the articles of fashion on your sidebar; and those DIAMOND DROPS? I need to investigate those!

Wow, these are some gorgeous gifts!

You know, i don’t get stressed out about presents because i only buy them for people i really love and have spent time with during the year. The same goes for xmas cards. Is that cheap of me? I don’t know, but this way, every present counts and is given with thought and love. Others are just a waste of money 🙂

Have a lovely weekend. Now over to your other blog, which i ADORE!

These gifts are truly calming and you have certainly been very organised with your Christmas shopping. I just have a couple left to buy!

These are wonderful gifts…calming and tranquil is definitely most needed at this time of year. I did all my shopping early too & whatever else I’ve needed, I have ordered online. I went out shopping once and it was too stressing, the grumpiness of others just spoiled the Christmas cheer, so I just saved myself the hassle and ordered online and enjoy singing my Christmas carols 🙂 These are perfect gifts, I am particularly loving the pillows, so lush and opulent!! I do hope you have a wonderful weekend doll xx

Christine’s prints are beautiful! I love Jeff Nixon’s photography as well. And I don’t think I would mind receiving the Eames book as a gift. It’s all about books this Christmas for me. I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend
