Or I wouldn’t turn away these or these. Cozy and beautiful!
And of course anything handmade, homemade (especially if it were by a certain nine or twelve year old), or thrifted trumps all of the above!!!
And the “sugar on top” would be a mango bubble tea from our local Vietnamese restaurant or maybe a cup of the peppermint stick flavored coffee that is for sale at ALDI these days and that I ran out of yesterday. I seem to be craving both right now. 🙂

Tweens. Some of my favorite ages but not always my favorite to find gifts for! They are close to or have exited the “toy phase” but aren’t quite yet into clothing, tech gadgets, sports equipment, etc. As my nine year old little lady was writing out her Christmas list the other day she said “I just can’t think of any toys that I want”. (wink, wink) With just a hint of sadness but mostly gladness I told her that she just might need to try and think of some other things this year. Honestly, I could get her a stocking full of pretty notebooks and stationary and she’d be happy – she’s definitely my girl. Next week I hope to find some “under the tree” ideas for your tween lady! In the meantime, happy weekend to you!
