My Gift Up Close


i got all of my gifts from world market (not sponsored).  while anthropologie is one of my favorite stores for fabulous gifts, its a bit out of my price range, and world market has some pretty comparable items that are equally drool-worthy, but at a price that allows you to not only justify buying some gifts, but maybe even some for yourself!  if you just can’t handle waiting to see if you win all these goodies, i’m including links below for you to purchase on your own.


batter bowl /  mini colander /  measuring spoons /  bakers twine /  egg dish


hazelnut syrup /  “good morning” coffee mug /  “note to self” paper pad


dish soap /  hand soap /  tea towel /  dish towel


a Rafflecopter giveaway

don’t forget to “hop” to each blog above to enter their giveaways, too!
