3 Christmas DIYs + 7 Sweet Gifts Under $30
I independently selected products in this post—if you buy from one of my links, I may earn a commission.
1. Fragrant, Lovely, & Memorable
I discovered Tocca products (and in particular, Cleopatra, my favorite) when I was a guest at the luxurious Elysian Hotel (now the Waldorf) in Chicago’s Gold Coast. The Elysian Spa smelled like Cleopatra, and the fragrant body wash was at every sink for hand soap. That was many years ago, yet I still have Tocca’s Cleopatra body wash at my own bathroom sink.
Here is a sweet way to experience several Tocca fragrances with hand softening cream:
2. Delightful from a Danish Design Brand
If you have yet to discover the quality and charm of Maileg…oh my goodness!!! It was Monika of the Seattle-based Splendid Avenue who introduced these creations to me in 2010. Because they are always limited release, they will always become collectible.
Adults and children alike will be smitten!
Christmas DIY Idea No. 1: Handmade, Minimal Easy Scandi Decorations
It was the felt star garland that got my attention since I have hand-sewn my own little ivory felted stars. See my own Christmas home tour HERE. But these are made simpler with hot glue.
3. Because STRESSED Spelled Backwards is DESSERT
Who wouldn’t appreciate a bit of truffle goodness? And it need not be wrapped.
4. Not Just for the Holidays
The colors are so gorgeous, and the theme is sooooo not in yer face Christmas that it will look lovely all year round.
Christmas DIY Idea No. 2: Upcycled Thrift Store Finds for Holiday
I picked up a few tips from She Holds Dearly in this frugal romp, and her cozy little window seat reminds me of my own!
5. Sweetly Different Than Other Recipes
Ravneet Gill charms with unusual flavor combinations inside SUGAR, I LOVE YOU and her fresh writing voice.

6. Luscious Lip Smackers
Holiday DIY Idea No. 3: Decorating the Kitchen With Citrus & Cedar
Hers is a simple, cheerful, white kitchen just right for decorating seasonally. I’m always in awe of homeowners who get into the spirit of each season by styling their shelves and thoughtfully accenting with natural touches. (I have not decorated for the holidays a lick yet!)
7. Organic 12 Calorie Glory in Precious Round Tins
I never tire of the Pink Grapefruit & Tupelo Honey, but I actually love all of Torie & Howard’s offerings so don’t hesitate to give any flavor this Christmas. I keep a tin in a bedside drawer (shhhhh!) as it is healthier to satisfy a sweet tooth this way at 9 pm (when I am considering the chocolate cake in the frig).
