Holiday Wish List: Melissa’s Picks

The Holiday season is upon us and we are making a list and checking it twice.  Here are a few of the things I’m hoping to find under the tree this Christmas:


1. Personalized Stationary | Rifle Paper Co. | $50

The past year has felt a little frantic – between starting a new job and moving to a new city, I have been overwhelmed with change and have spent many nights and weekends at home avoiding any unnecessary plans.  I’m hoping to make 2017 a year of reconnecting with loved ones.  I am jump starting my goal by sending these holiday cards and plan to continue the trend throughout the year with personalized stationary from Rifle Paper Co.

2. The Sherpa Slipper | Madewell | $49.50 (plus 25% off)

My boyfriend is sick of me stealing his extra thick and cozy socks (these) to wear around the house.  I’ve been searching for the perfect slipper (classic white slip-ons) forever (which has been surprisingly difficult).  The search finally came to an end when I spotted these Madewell Sherpa Slippers which are both everything I’m looking for and are currently on sale.  Win.

3. Fleur-de-Lis Cocktail Napkins | One Kings Lane | $25

Nothing adds a little fancy to an after work cocktail like an embroidered cocktail napkin.  The Fleur-de-Lis is a classic Louisville symbol and will pair perfectly with a rocks glass of Kentucky bourbon.

4. Soho Leather Tote | Ivanka Trump | $295

My current bag / purse situation is not working – think cross body stuffed full with my personal and work needs.  The size and organization of this tote make it the perfect carry all – complete with a battery pack to ensure a fully charged phone and a variety of large and small pockets for easy access to your go to items.  Learn more about the features of this take-everywhere bag here.

5. Cruiser Turntable | Crossley | $99.95 (currently on sale for $79.95)

Friday nights in our house often include drinks and music as we decompress from the week and prepare for a few much needed days of rest.  This Cruiser Turntable is the perfect addition to our weekend ritual and will allow us to easily switch between our current favorites on Pandora and classic records.

6. Halter Bow-Tie Swimsuit | J-Crew | $118 (currently 30% off)

Our Christmas will be spent in FLA and I’m dreaming of warmer weather and pool time.  Love this one piece from J-Crew which is conservative in the front and a party in the back.  When paired with breezy linen pants, this suit can go from the beach to lunch with ease.


Stay tuned for Sheena’s wish list later this week.  What are you coveting this Holiday season?
