Love List – November

All things holiday are amongst us! I know I speak for many of our readers when I say I’m excited for the season this year. I’m not sure why, but this year feels different for me.

It’s been a crazy time in our country (jeez, or WORLD for that matter) and no matter how the year is ending, how nuts the year has been, or how insane our weekly schedule is, the holiday traditions ground our family and bring us back to home base.

Here are some fun items I am loving as we embark on all things sparkly, glittery and holiday!

Thymes Heirlum Pumpkin Candle ~ $29

This year I made a switch to Thymes candles. The price point is higher than some, but the burn time is insanely long – over 65 hours! The fragrance is also a bit more tame, and not overpowering like with some scented candles. I’m looking forward to burning these from now through December!

Rocketbook Wave Smart Notebook ~ $27

Our editor, Alicia, just ordered one of these bad boys. She’s excited to have her written notes from work pushed out to an app for digital storage – and to erase the ink off the pages when she’s done with them! Would also love this for grocery and to-do lists at home. Hello holiday shopping lists?!

Pottery Barn Advent Calendar ~ $59+

This year, I’m focusing on creating more memories and experiences throughout the holiday season, while getting my kids just a few special gifts that come in a box for Christmas. Advent calendars are a great way to bring a little delight into the days leading up to Christmas and through Hanukkah — and kids always love counting down!

Summer Fridays Overtime Mask ~ $44

After hearing a number of friends rave about this face mask, I just had to try it. It gives my skin a nice polish as the weather shifts, and the light pumpkin scent feels seasonally appropriate – HA.

Skip Hop Bear Winter Edition Mealtime Set ~ $20

My boys love these dedicated dining sets that correspond with holiday themes. We will use this winter-themed set through January, for sure — and you know how I feel about buffalo check.

Construction Site on Christmas Night ~ $12

The latest edition to the series is just in time for the holiday season. My boys love these books, and we are super excited to add this book to our holiday line up.

Merkury Innovations Charging Station ~ $18+

If I could show you the “charging corner” of our kitchen counter, you would probably seriously relate. You know, the place where the wireless speaker, our phones, iPads and Kindle all end up when they need to be juiced. After having this in my life, I would sell these things door to door – that’s how much I love them!

Because the station doesn’t come with cords, here is what you need.

Tucker + Tate Cozy Reindeer Hat ~ $19

Move over elf hats, this deer beanie is so cute it makes my ovaries hurt.

Lolleez Organic Throat Soothing Pops; Pack of 3 ~ $29

Tis’ the season for colds and the crud. These have been a major hit in our house this week as my two boys navigate our first round of colds.

Hanna Andersson Holiday Long Johns in Organic Cotton ~ $44

You better believe my family is rocking holiday ‘jams already. Day after Halloween is go time! Hanna always has my fave prints when it comes to holiday styles. Typically this time of year, you can always find them on sale (like, now!). This year I am digging the holiday gnome print.

Hanukkah print:

That’s it for November. I hope you found something to get you a little excited about the season. Happy Thanksgiving!
