This whole scenario is atypical for me, being that it’s Christmas Eve eve + I’m still finishing up my Christmas shopping. Buying gifts for my loved ones is arguably one of my favorite pastimes, and as a result, I’m usually the girl who’s got everything checked off on Cyber Monday. But this year, a move + living out of a suitcase for a month have put me in this unusual position of heading out to fight the crowds two days before Christmas to finish up that one. last. gift.
If you’re like me, and some of the people on your list might be getting New Year’s gifts instead, here are some ideas for you. I’m always looking for new pretties to hang on my wall, and am a total sucker for anything that reminds me of my travels. So if you have a fellow traveler still hanging out on your “to buy for” list – consider something for their home base that will continue to inspire adventure all year long.
I love love these art prints and maps from Minted (they have gold foil now! fancy!!) – and if I could cover my wall entirely with Chicago-themed things, I probably would. What can I say, I am certainly not lacking in hometown pride. Every globetrotter likes to be reminded of their home, even if they’re now a transplant in another awesome city somewhere.
And nothing says “Happy New Year” like a 2015 calendar (especially the kind that’s pretty enough to be repurposed as framed art once it’s 2016) – I love this vintage-inspired travel calendar or perhaps this one for your foodie-traveler friend. Side note – can you BELIEVE it’s almost 2015?!
Wishing you my beautiful friends a most happy holiday season + I’ll be back after the New Year!
