a secret-santa {combo} gift...

December 07, 2011

a few of my favorite gals & i are having our Annual Christmas {gift-exchange} Party this friday! and this year we decided to mix things up AND kinda live on the edge... because instead of our usual White Elephant {gift exchange}, we are doing a good ole Secret Santa {gift exchange}! which i am SO excited about! i think my current excitement ratio is 75% to spend quality time with my gals (while drinking lots of yummy champagne), 20% to treasure hunt for the perfect Secret Santa gift, and a good 5% to see what creative goodie my little Santa got me! so all-in-all... i'd say i'm 100% in the holiday spirits and looking forward to my first (of a few) fabulous Christmas Parties! i LOVE Christmas!!! eat, drink, be merry!

**see below for some clever Christmas Gift Combos... for UNDER $40! 
***a little side-note: this year i think i'm going to go for the challenge of getting as much awesome (& useful) goodies for under our $40 budget! a little Christmas goodie-bag!


{the goods:}
all these goodies are from (either):
Modcloth {all jewelry, squirrel paper clips, scarf}
Forever 21 {beanie, socks}
Anthropologie {vase, candle, bowl, journal, pot holders}
Nordstrom {actually nothing in this collage is from Nordies, but the BP department has great inexpensive finds!}

a little note:
if you're an online kinda-gal (check out): Modcloth, Forever 21, Urban Oufitters
if you want a little Christmas spirit while you shop (these places are pretty & festive): Anthropologie, or Nordstroms (BP department,  less-expensive)


do you have a secret Santa this year??? 
well, if he's a boy... check out some great MAN-GIFTS here!
