Happy Thanksgiving!! I figured a day filled with cooking, baking, and eating is the perfect day to share my christmas gift ideas for the chef in your family. It’s the perfect day to sneak in the kitchen and see which of the items above they need or need a new one of. In my family, if your borrow it, you get one for Christmas. Ha!
Personally, I love cooking. I am all about eating real food, meal prepping, and avoiding processed foods. This means my kitchen is well stocked for all my cooking needs. This holiday gift guide is filled with my favorite brands and products, along with a few items on my dream wish list. All of these items are staples for any cook to create all the yummy meals!
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day! Thanks for taking some time out of your day to stop by the blog. Be sure to check back bright and early tomorrow for a full list of Black Friday Sales and one of my favorite work looks for fall.

Holiday Gift Guide for Men
Happy Thanksgiving Eve!! I have a hopefully short day at work and then I’m headed home to check out a few early Black Friday sales online. I’ve listed a few of the ones I have found at the end of today’s post for you! Also, I have several gift guides coming at you over the next few days, so you can take advantage of a few sales while doing your gift shopping. Be sure to check back daily for all the Cyber Week sale fun!
My Christmas gift ideas for men hit on a few different types of guys. I included a few tech products like the Echo speaker with Alexa and top of the line bluetooth speaker. For my outdoorsy men, a travel hammock and a few drink containers. For my scotch drinkers and entertainers, I found a couple decanters with cool designs. I think the globe with the ship inside is pretty cool. It’s functional and a decoration. Maybe it’s the fashion blogger in me, but I like buying guys clothes. It’s the perfect excuse to enhance their wardrobe a little or introduce them to a new color or style.
A few grooming products are also included in my gift guide. I include this toiletry bag every year because I think it’s the perfect guy gift, especially if you know a man who travels a bunch. I have purchased this one before for a family member. It’s a good size and durable.
Be sure to check back tomorrow for another fun gift guide perfect for both men and women, plus on Friday I will have a big list of Black Friday sales along with a super adorable work look. Happy Sale Shopping Ya’ll!

Holiday Dinner Dress
Happy Thanksgiving Week! What are your plans for the week? I have to work for the first half, but the second half is all about family, comfort foods, and sale shopping! Don’t worry I am planning a big sales list on Friday and Monday for you along with a cute fall work outfit post on Friday. I’m going to spend the next few days making my gift buying list and a list of all my places to check out for a little treat yourself shopping. I’ve been holding back on a few purchases to hopefully find them on sale this week.
With Thanksgiving just a few days a way, I wanted to share the perfect holiday dinner dress that can also be worn to the office. If you saw my casual Thanksgiving outfit post on Friday, then you have gathered that I’m loving the brown and black for Thanksgiving this year.
This dress is so comfy ya’ll! Tie waists and Thanksgiving are totally meant for each other too. If you over indulge, you can just loosen the tie a little. 😉 I also love the ruffle sleeve on this dress. It has a band at the wrist which really makes this dress work in a variety of weather, perfect for our crazy Texas weather. I wore this dress to work and pulled up the sleeves to 3/4 length during the hot part of the day and pulled them down in the cool morning and evening.
Also, these peep toe booties are the same ones from Friday. I love that they pair so perfectly with both jeans and dresses! They come in a few colors, but I love this brown shade for fall and spring.
Alright ya’ll, have a wonderful start to your week! Be sure to check back on Wednesday for my next gift guide, and Friday for the cutest work outfit plus a full list of Black Friday Sales! If you are looking for something specific during the sales, drop me a comment and I will see what I can find!

Black & Brown Thanksgiving Outfit Idea
Happy Friday friends!! We are also less than a week away from Thanksgiving! Do you have your Thanksgiving outfit idea yet? My holiday plans include hanging out with family at my Grandma’s for a yummy and traditional turkey dinner. My outfit plans are for something comfy but still chic. Most likely something along the lines of today’s post.
I love the chicness of the all black look and the pop of this gorgeous rose gold necklace against the black. I wanted to break up the black, so I added my cognac brown peep toe booties. The design of the shoe also helps dress up the look a bit. All together, I think it perfectly accomplish my chic and comfy desire.
If you have never purchased a Gibson sweater, you should know they are the comfiest and softest sweaters! I own a few and LOVE them! When I saw this cute little off the shoulder one I had to have it. It has that trendy off the shoulder style, the chic black color, and the comfy I love. It’s basically all the makings of the perfect sweater for all the fall and winter events. You could make this work for date night or brunch with different color jeans, heels, and some statement earrings.
If you are looking for something dressier, check back Monday for the perfect dress for Thanksgiving dinner! In case you missed it, I launched my Christmas Gift Guide Series this week with gift ideas under $50. You can check it out HERE. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend, and I will see you back here on Monday!
