Cozy Gift Guide with Sweet Olive & Co.

Hi sweet friends!

Welcome back!! And Happy Thanksgiving!

Today’s post is super exciting!! We’re talkin’ a collaboration with Sweet Olive & Co. Boutique! 

Sweet Olive is the one-stop-shop for all your holiday shopping and gifting for all the amazing women in your life! They literally have everything. From home decor, to the coziest beanies, they have it all. 

If you aren’t familiar with Sweet Olive Boutique, they’re a trendy, women’s clothing boutique with 4 locations across Indy: Greenwood, Franklin, Plainfield, and Noblesville. They carry sizes small-3X, and they have an online inventory with free U.S. shipping! 

If you’re anything like me, or you know someone like me, and love all things cozy and warm, then this is the gift guide for you.

Cozy Gift Ideas!

Gift ideas for the girl who’s always cold, for the boss babe who works from home in her PJ’s (aka the homebody aka me), or for anyone who just likes really soft, cozy things and a good cup of coffee!

The Ultimate Pullover

Oh hi, perfect! Is this not the perfect pullover? The “Country Hayride Pullover” in camel is not only the cutest pullover I’ve seen to date, but also the comfiest I’ve ever felt. I wish you could feel how soft this is through the screen.  I haven’t taken it off since the day I bought it. Yes, I  bought it for someone else. And yes, I do have to go back to Sweet Olive to get another one for them because this one is now mine. It’s that good.

Can’t Go Wrong with a Christmas Graphic

Okay I know what you’re thinking. Not cozy, not warm, why is this in my gift guide? Well, coffee, duh! Nothing warms my heart more than coffee & Christmas cheer! (It’ll all come full circle soon! ;)) I think this “Christmas Cheer Top” is the perfect tee to throw on under the pullover, so not only are you warmer because of an added layer, but you’re also super festive just in case! You never know. 

The Best Leggings

Every girl can always use a really great pair of leggings, for warmth and for functionality. Or for your pants of choice M-F. (Shhh I won’t tell!) And these, my friends, are a really great pair of leggings. Sweet Olive’s “Classic Premium Leggings” are not see through, they’re seamless, and they’re just really good. They hold up really well, and they’re not super thin! And also now we have a whole outfit, which is always nice. 

Go-To Warm Scarf

Seriously? It doesn’t get better than this scarf. Well, actually I can name a few things that are better. Like Disney World and Golden Doodles. But that’s pretty much it. 

Let’s just start from the top.

The color, stunning. The texture, so good! The style, dead. The ability to keep you warm? Unreal. This scarf is SO warm!

Sweet Olive carries a few color options in this style of scarf! Unfortunately, this exact one isn’t available online, but I would check in-stores!! Here are a few good scarf options that they do have online! I feel like every woman loves receiving winter staples like scarves or beanies for Christmas, so you can’t really go wrong here! 

A Sweet Olive Gift Box!

And last, but certainly not least, we have this super unique gift option: The Sweet Olive Gift Boxes! These are available in stores and are customizable! Each box comes with a bath bomb and a Signature C.C Beanie (you decide the color of the beanie), and the 3rd item is up to you between a mug, a wine glass, a candle, or a gift card! And guess what? It’s a $45 value for only $30!! And it’s the cutest, so it’s a win-win for everyone!!

I chose a mug for mine that reads, “She believed she could, but she was really tired so she didn’t!” Literally me. Lol. Sweet Olive has some super punny and goofy mugs and wine glasses! The perfect addition to any gift! (See, I told you we’d make it back to coffee!! I always do. ;))

The Signature C.C Beanies are my favorite!! I’m not much of a beanie wearer, but these fit so well, and they’re super warm! And they come in a billion colors!!

I hope I’ve inspired some gift ideas for you for that someone in your life who’s maybe always cold, or who you constantly hear say, “OH MY GOSH IT’S SOOO SOFT!!” or who’s idea of a wild night is a cozy night in, by the fire, with a cup of coffee! If you’re curious, all of those things are me. Lol.

Sweet Olive has a super awesome Black Friday deal going on now: THANKFUL4U30 for 30% off site-wide and in-store!! (A Cyber Monday deal headed your way very soon; I will update you, don’t worry!) But on any other day of the year you can use the code: CLAIRERENE15 for 15% off your purchase!

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

valentines-day-4

Hello! 🙂

Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it, does your special someone know what you’d love to receive? I know there’s a bunch of crap spoken about Valentine’s Day, and how “Oh, it’s so stupid how there’s a day to celebrate love!” “Shouldn’t you always show your partner love and make them feel special?”

While, yes you should always celebrate love & yes, you should always try to make them feel special, I’ll be the first to say that not everyday is rainbows and butterflies, and I can guarantee you you and your significant other do not always show an immense love for one another 24/7, taking them nice places every day (which would be ridiculous), spoiling them with nice little gifts, and celebrating your love. Some days are hard. Life gets in the way. Things come up. & Yes, while you still love them with all your heart and they love you just the same, it’s nice to take some time to celebrate that love and express your appreciation and gratitude, letting them know how much they mean to you, by doing a little extra!

SO if you think Valentine’s Day is stupid, go ahead and click out of this blog post. But, if you think all things Valentine’s Day are just the cutest, you love themed gifts, you love gift giving, and you believe  in celebrating your love and going over the top for the one you love, then this is the post for you!

So if you’re anything like me (or your girl is anything like me) you love the simplest things! You don’t have to spend a lot to make your girl smile!

LUSH Bath Bombs & Bubble Bars

Lush bath bombs and bubble bars are the easiest and cutest way to bring a smile to your lady’s face! AND they’re SO inexpensive! They start as low as $5.25 and typically do not exceed $10! Lush also creates gift boxes, gift wrapped and ready to go, with many different products inside!

Starbucks Coffee Travel Cups & Mugs

Okay, hello, cutest cups ever! The new Starbucks Valentine’s Day themed drink-ware is absolutely adorable! If she’s a coffee lover, she can never have too many mugs! 😉 A super cute gift idea is to create a gift that’s completely finished and put together, like a mug + a box of her favorite k-cup coffee + cute stir sticks + even a bottle of flavored syrup for coffee/lattes!

Personal Book/Photobook

These are my FAVORITE kind of gifts! I adore my “What I Love About You” book my man got me a few years ago! Francesca’s has many different book options and they’re all adorable! All you do is fill it out and make it personal, filling in different memories, inside jokes, and things that are only true for the 2 of you!

Another thing I am loving is the website: www.shutterfly.com! I’ve been using Shutterfly for a few years and they have never disappointed! They have an enormous amount of gifts/books/mugs that you can personalize and they make the most perfect gifts!

Polaroid Camera

71ugbf3isul-_sl1500_

If you’re looking to spend a little more money, this Raspberry Polaroid is absolutely beautiful & so fun! If she doesn’t have one, she will love it! It’s kinda like the thing you never knew you wanted! It makes the smallest things much more exciting when you have a cool way of documenting it! PLUS it’s amazing to have for vacation/trips!

Watches

I have found a new love for watches! They add so much to your look and they’re helpful! This adorable Valentine’s themed watch is from Charming Charlie’s and it’s only $16!!! AMAZING!

If you’re looking to spend a little more money on a little nicer watch, I’ve stumbled across the coolest brand! I ordered my boyfriend a watch from TreeHut a couple of weeks ago and it’s quickly become his favorite gift! The sweetest thing about the company is you can engrave a personal message on the back! Right now they’re having a Valentine’s special as well! The watches are made from 100% real wood! They’re incredibly nice! They also sell couples watches where you can buy 2 together!

Jewelry/Change Trays

I also just recently found this company, Frou Frou & Frill! These are the sweetest little gifts! Plus you can either  personalize one ex. adding a name or just change the colors of an item to fit what you’re wanting! Obsessed! You could change the color of the heart on the one on the right, so it’s more manly, and he can use it as a change holder, a place to keep his wallet, his keys, little things that float around in his pockets!

Too Face x Kat Von D Better Together Ultimate Eye Collection

s1892421-main-lhero

You’ve probably been thinking, “Claire, it’s so unlike you to not include makeup!” Oh honey, don’t worry it’s here now. Just take this whole palette in real quick. How fun is this? This is the first time that 2 brands have come together to collaborate on 1 product! So exciting! If your girl is girly, loves makeup, loves themed gifts, and you, then she will DIE when you give her this! It’s actually the cutest!

Fragrances

I think you can never go wrong with perfume & cologne! These are just a few very popular scents for him & her! My go-to is Versace Bright Crystal and man, does it smell AMAZING!! ❤

Home Decor

Of course, I had to mention Target! To me, Target always has the cutest holiday decor! I think a perfect gift is one that can be used over and over! And nothing is more perfect than cutesy Valentine’s Day themed pillows & home decor, for an affordable price!

I hope this helped and you got some ideas! Feel free to share this, so that someone in your life can get some ideas as well 😉

Happy Early Valentine’s Day! ❤
