Kelly’s 15 Favorite Things – Holiday Edition

Today, I’m sharing my 15 favorite things holiday edition. These are things I own, use and love. From my favorite sugar scrub to the cutest candle to an adorable $3 vintage Shiny Brite dishtowel (I use them as napkins!) to a scarf that will update any outfit and so much more. I hope you’ll find some fun gift ideas or treat yourself. Not only am I sharing my favorite things … I’m also sharing some of my friends favorite things at the end of this post.

The oversized fringe on this scarf is amazing (and it’s on sale)! It will update any outfit instantly and keep you warm to boot (it comes in three colors – I got the taupe)!

Gorgeous tassel scarf

This sugar scrub (less than $13) will leave your skin feeling so soft and smooth and the bonus is it smells like a tropical island.

Once you use the Face Halo, you’ll never go back! This makeup remover pad just needs water to remove every last speck of makeup and its reusable.

I can’t say enough good things about my new Smart Oven / Air Fryer. I will never go back to pan frying chicken cutlets again. My potatoes and veggies are always cooked to crispy perfection and I love knowing that I don’t need lots of oil to make things taste great.

I’m addicted to these air-fried zucchini sticks!

Forget blow drying, then straightening. This Hair Dryer / Hot Air Brush combo does it all and really pumps on the volume on my hair. My girls swear by it too!

Every girl needs a signature scent and mine is Flowerbomb. It truly is the bomb!

This reproduction light up ceramic Christmas tree adds some vintage cheer to my home and I love that it’s battery operated so you can display it anywhere.

I can’t resist a good monogram and this initial necklace takes it to the next level with a bit of bling that can be dressed up or down.

When I saw these adorable little house candles, I knew one had to come home with me! I also love this wood tree candle that you can display long after Christmas. They are on sale too!

This paperclip chain necklace is the hottest accessory of the year and I couldn’t resist scooping one up for myself. I think it will be fun to add some charms to it to make it more personalized.

If you love vintage Shiny Brite ornaments as much as I do, then you need this vintage ornament dish towel! The best part is the $3 price tag (here’s a sneak peek at my Christmas table using these dishtowels as napkins)!

This huge round wood tray sits on my counter all year long displaying my favorite things but it does double duty as a charcuterie tray! I love the raised edges so nothing slips off and the handles make it easy to transport.

Love this giant wood tray as a charcuterie board

I use this tote bag as a beach bag but also love it as a shopping/grocery bag (since most stores charge for bags now). I have the large size which fits a ton and I love that you can personalize it with your name, initials or anything else you want (I have my zip code embroidered onto mine).

Sparse trees are my favorite for showing off favorite ornaments and this sparse Christmas tree is less than $200 making it an affordable option. It’s similar to the pair I put in my dining room every year.

This portable bluetooth speaker is easy to take anywhere and I love that it’s waterproof (it even floats)!

  1. Hi Kelly – I didn’t even know that paper clip necklaces were a thing. Now I do – very nice – will make a nice gift for my sisters. 🙂 The sparse trees in your dining room will always be one of my favorites – I love how you decorated them. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. XO
