SMI's Favorite Things

This post contains Amazon affiliate links. Thank you so much for reading and supporting our blog!

We are so excited to share a list of our favorite things over here at SMI! Whether you are shopping for your mom, kids or even better, yourself (!), we hope this list helps you get in the shopping spirit!

#1: A Cozy Blanket

We can't stop talking about Barefoot Dreams blankets over here! Both of us girls at SMI snuggled with this blanket after having our babies. Add to your own wishlist or gift to someone that needs extra rest this holiday season!

#2: Toddler Tree

This little felt tree is the perfect addition to the kitchen for busy toddlers - our little guys both love to stand and keep busy while we prep for dinner. The ornaments can be put on and taken off as many times as their little hearts desire and it can be used year after year!

#3: Ice Ice Baby

The holiday season calls for lots of late nights and early mornings. This ice roller helps with headaches from late night cocktails or middle of the night wake-ups with crying babies. Gift this SMI favorite to your best girlfriend to help her wake up and feel her best!

#4: For the Host

Frog Tree Farm is not only decking the halls with gorgeous wreaths, they have gifts for under the tree as well! These charcuterie boards are perfect to bring to the holidays filled with Christmas cookies and then left for the host to enjoy for years to come!

#5: Winter Reading

As avid readers, holiday themed novels are the perfect way to cozy up next to the Christmas tree after putting the baby to bed. Winter Street is the first of four books in the Winter Street Series by Elin Hilderbrand. These easy reads are the perfect gift for the reader in your life!

#6: Family Game Night

This game was a hit over Thanksgiving! An easy game to play while chatting, the suspense makes for hilarious reactions and can be played with all ages! Bring as a game to play during the holidays or for the prankster on your list that can play with their friends!

#7: The Smartest Diffuser

Our favorite gift for the home this year is the Pura Smart Diffuser! You can have your favorite Capri Volcano scent all over your home without even burning a candle and it's all controlled from an app on your phone! Studio McGee even has their own fragrances this year... they are on our wishlist!

#8: The Perfect Pout

Getting dressed up for the holidays is more fun with lipgloss! This clean lipgloss from BeautyCounter is our favorite way to tie a holiday party look together - or to add a little color to our early Christmas morning gift opening!

#9: Stay Hydrated

As heard in the SMI office, "I miss my Stanley travel tumbler when I forget it in my car." We may take the Stanley obsession to the extreme, but we sure are hydrated! This cupholder friendly water bottle is the best holiday road-trip companion and will even impress your college-aged kids as the perfect gift!

#10: Beauty Rest

The last thing on our list is the perfect way to end the holiday season - with lots of rest! These silk pillowcases are the perfect way to extend your blowout and are easy on your delicate skin as well! Gift this to the beauty lover on your list!
