Snowy Holiday Gift Guide

in , by Lavender Elizabeth, November 26, 2022
I absolutely love winter! I don't know if it goes back to my Canadian roots or not, but chilly weather and snow make me so happy. Some of my best memories are from this time of year, including trips to Lake Tahoe, playing with my cousins in Toronto, ice skating in Chicago, and so many more. These memories are filled with laughter, new experiences, and child-like wonder. In honor of today's gift guide, I'm sharing three of my favorite snowy memories...

Holiday Gift Guide: Ornaments

in , , by Lavender Elizabeth, November 24, 2022
One of the traditions that I've carried with me as an adult revolves around ornaments. Whenever we traveled as a family, we would purchase an ornament to commemorate the trip. Now, whenever I go somewhere new, I buy an ornament for my tree (check some of them out here). This love of ornaments has cascaded into other areas of my life, as well. Each year, I gift my family and friends ornaments that either represent something important in their lives or big that happened in the past year. It's one of my most-loved things to gift, as they're so personal, as well as represent core memories. To help you find the cutest ornaments for your loved ones (or yourself), I've rounded up some of my favorites, all divided into different categories to help you shop!

Merry Swiftmess! I've recently become quite the fan of Taylor Swift (I took me a while), so I thought it'd be fun to put together a gift guide inspired by the pop queen herself. Enjoy the subtle nods to some of her most popular songs below, perfect to gift the Swifties in your life.

Holiday Gift Guide: Camping

It's officially time to kick-off gift guide season on the blog! I absolutely love choosing gifts for my loved ones, so always look forward this time of year. If you're new to Lavender Elizabeth, rather than do gift guides "for her" or "for in-laws," etc., I put together themed, curated lists for you. This year, I've chosen to share ideas for both things I love, as well as what my family and friends love.

First up - gifts for campers and hikers. My family grew up camping every summer and those trips are some of my most cherished memories. Thankfully I have friends that love camping as much as I do, so I've been able to enjoy it as an adult, too. Below are some tried and true items, as well as some fun additions to enjoy around the campfire.
