8 Days Until Christmas?!? A Last-Minute Gift Guide

8 Days Until Christmas?!? A Last-Minute Gift Guide

Hey Modern Farmhouse Girl!

MERRY-ALMOST-CHRISTMAS! I have so much to catch you up on from the last…TWO MONTHS?!! GIRL, I’m so sorry I haven’t been busy on the blog…I was just too busy VISITING THE MAGNOLIA SILOS IN WACO, TEXAS !!!!! (I’m NOT KIDDING! I WILL BLOG ABOUT IT SOON!!! Among other things...) I also spent Thanksgiving in New York City and this past weekend in Boston!!! Still, sending you hugs and hoping you keep coming back, because I intend to blog again regularly since I don’t have any more big travel plans (yet!).

But, um, can we talk about the fact that…there’s just EIGHT Days until Christmas!!?!!?!!!??!!! This truly is the most wonderful time of the year; my most favorite season. And since I know you’re everything like me, I know you’ve been busy too: decking the halls, fa-la-la-la-la-ing and jingling all the way. (Are you also jamming out to Christmas music 24/7? Lauren Daigle’s album is my FAV. I’m also a Harry Connick Jr. fan. Thanks Mom!)

You probably already have your gifts all wrapped and arranged thoughtfully under your tree, too. I did last year. But this year I’ve been so busy, I haven’t even had the time to pick out a tree. (I’m kind of sad about it. But there are more important things!) I DID decorate my house for the season, dropping ornaments all over the place like confetti and wrapping big red bows around everything from my rooster statue by the front door to my potted plants in the living room. My stocking is also hung by my faux-fireplace (it’s electric!). I’m ready for Santa!

Also: I’ll just put it out there. I haven’t completed my Christmas shopping yet! So, I’m semi-shopping from the couch as I write this. Do you maybe need some last-minute gift inspiration?

If so, here are 8 gifts I think are pretty great:

The Cutest Little Camera

These Fujifilm Instax Mini Cameras are just adorable. Who wouldn’t want one? And I love the sentiment you could include on the card: “Here’s to capturing another year of sweet memories” or something REALLY CUTE. C’MON. YOU CAN BE CUTE! Of course, we modern farmhouse girls will all love this mint green color.

Cozy Pom Pom Throws

I think everyone needs a cozy throw for snuggling up on their couch under. Give me fleece. Give me pom poms. These are perfection.

Girls Night Swag

Stephanie May Wilson has my heart! And she’s going to have yours and your girlfriends’ too! If you don’t know about the Girls Night podcast, please go download it ASAP! Also, go download a free copy of her book The Lipstick Gospel. I read it in an afternoon it was SO GOOD! (And I’ve given it as gifts to a few treasured friends—it’s a great gift too!) I love all her cute swag, like this bright T, for modern farmhouse girlfriends.

Twinkle Toes

My very stylish cousin was rocking THESE HEELS at our family Christmas party yesterday and let it drop they were from Old Navy!!!! Love O.N. too much And these shoes are so special. Get a pair for all the ladies in your life.


Sweet Tunes

I can’t wait to get this awesome CD (yes, I do mean CD… my car has a compact disc player!) And I am always certain the best gifts to give are the ones you’d like to get. I know you know it too!


The Nicest Notebook

I’ve never had a Moleskine notebook myself, but I know so many people that love them. So why not gift one in the recipient’s favorite color?

A Cordless Drill

Beautiful, beautiful cordless drills… making all a modern farmhouse girls’ house projects so much simpler. (I own a NON-cordless drill, which I’ve gotten adept at using hooked up to a very long extension cord.) Maybe this will be a gift-to-myself this year!

Jo’s Home Book

If your friends and family didn’t pre-order it on Amazon months in advance (like I did) you want to buy them “Home Body” by Joanna Gaines. The perfect coffee table book that you will learn loads from. Love you, Jo!

Merry Christmas to you and yours!
