To stay in the Holiday theme, I decided I would show y'all a little of how I decorated our home this year (our first married Christmas!) and also a few last minute manly stocking stuffers.
Aren't those men just so difficult?
I think stockings are a great place to add in some of his favorite things, or some useful things, without breaking the bank.
A pack of his favorite gum is a great little gift, and so easy to pick up anywhere!
I also love gifting little flashlights, they're great to keep in your car or around the house.
A nice leather bound journal is a favorite gift as well, he can use it to write notes in for himself and if you're feeling extra sweet-you can write him a sweet note in the front!
A nice pocket knife is always an excellent gift for any man (plus he can use it to help you open your presents for the rest of the day!)
A fun decal, like this one from Yeti is also a great gift. He can stick it to his vehicle, laptop, or a notebook.
A keychain is also a really nice gift, this Auburn one is a bottle opener too-perfect for tailgating!
A snack is also a super fun idea to stick in there, something that he can take with him maybe if you're traveling a lot on Christmas day?
Chomp's Snack Sticks are a favorite around our house and they are the perfect size for tucking in a stocking!
They also come in several fun flavors; original, jalapeño, and cran chomps are just a few.
These snacks are 100% grass fed beef and don't have hard to pronounce ingredients like crazy additives (think; a healthy version of slim jims)
Now that I've shared my last minute stocking stuffers, I want to share my little "home tour" with all y'all :)
This is an overview of our entire living room (pardon the random chair in the middle of the floor, I was fixing the star before these pictures!)
These beautiful poinsettias are a gift from one of Chris' sweet friends to us, they're absolutely beautiful and make a perfect centerpiece for our large coffee table.
I love to display our family bible (a wedding gift from a sweet friend) and some photo books that I've done for us.
This is one of my favorite little nooks, my cedar chest was an estate sale find and I absolutely love using it to decorate. And of course my believe sign that was a super inexpensive Kirkland's find :)
A little Kirkland's decor in my kitchen, which doesn't really get decorated because I use it too much! But I thought this little tree was perfect!
I love how our living room is divided into little nooks, but is a cohesive room together. I love our chaise, it's such a comfy little place to read or sit. My niece calls it her "princess couch"!
I used a simple pillow from Target, some ornaments inside an oversized Mason jar, a Target dollar spot sign, and a vase filled with my dried bouquet from my best friend's wedding!
Our entertainment center doesn't get too much decor, but it is where we hang our stockings & display our cards!
Another small nook, this is a chair that I bought at an estate sale, I just dressed it up with a red throw pillow and a Target dollar spot pillow.
I love our antler ornaments that are new this year (from Design World!) and our adorable patchwork fabric horses from Tractor Supply.
We usually get a new personalized ornament from the mall each year, but this year my sweet friend Gloria had given us this ornament at a wedding shower to celebrate our first married Christmas so that took the spot of honor at the front of our tree.
Our star is made of branches and was purchased two years ago at Target.
Our gift wrap is all from Target and Tractor Supply. I love the wood grain and antlers for Chris and the other men we buy for; the stripes and the plaid are so festive for everyone else!
This is our entryway (my daddy made this bookshelf when he was young!) and I love changing out it's decor for the seasons. The chalk plate is from the Target dollar spot and I attempted pretty chalk art (attempted being the word). Another Mason jar filled with ornaments, a JOY sign from the dollar spot, and two metallic trees from TJ Maxx and Hobby Lobby, plus a burlap bow to finish it off.
Both picture frames are from Kohl's.
I wish y'all could see how this garland looks in person because this picture does it no justice!
It's from Sears and I absolutely love it!
This is just my little spot on the couch with another red throw pillow and a Hobby Lobby pillow find.
Our guest bathroom got a touch of Christmas cheer this year; I filled my favorite apothecary jar with ornaments and added a tip towel that Chris received from one of his boys in the class he teaches at church on Wednesdays!
I kept my horse head bust and our initial out like always :)
And last of all, this shot that I took of my engagement ring and wedding band with our beautiful poinsettias.
I hope y'all enjoyed it!
