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

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

That Donna Karan pillow looks so soft and heavenly. It’s so nice to have your shopping done early and avoid the Christmas rush.

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!

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!

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.

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

Susannah November 3, 2018 at 17:31
