MY ‘BEST LAST-MINUTE GIFTS’ GUIDE 2012 | Plus: Best LOL Pet Video, Best Paper Tree Installation, Best Frenchie Instagram Pics, Best Self Tanner, Best Other Stuff, Etc…

My shoulders are at ear level right now.

Let’s jump right in.

Best video Honey sent me this week, by far: 

Best Instagram pics of frenchies, imho:

Personal favorite one of my Instagrams from the past week: click to view.

Best new thing I learned this week: what “fapping” means.  Did I say best?

We start with the Best New Thing, of All the Things.… ok ready for the show-stopper?  On my way home from buying a $400 dollar cup of Keurig coffee at my dentist’s office this week, I harmlessly swung by Williams Sonoma to delight my senses a bit and gather up some good last-minute gift ideas for you guys.

#1 ==>  I found these mugs five steps in.

Gold monogram mugs from Williams Sonoma.

I bought too many.

They were on sale though, 6.99 from 9.95.  I had to.

#2 ==>  If you’re looking for the *original* monogrammed mug, they were made famous by Anthropologie with these babies:

#3 ==>  A little bit more from Anthro, because of course.  This time it’s a stellar pick for your coffee table:

As we go along- keep in mind that I highly recommend you go to the stores to be *sure* you get these gifts in time, especially since most online stores can’t guarantee shipping before Christmas if you place your order later than Thursday afternoon.  (Don’t quote me on this!)

#4 ==>  Honey and I stumbled upon these Milk Bottle Measuring Cups and we had to have one of them.  We are in love with it.

^ Obsessed! ^

#5 ==>  Gloves = something I loves.

This was at J.Crew, Columbus Circle.  I know I am being a total girl, but I am loving what J.Crew is making happen these days.

#6 ==>  Sparkly shoes, anyone?  They had LOTS at J.Crew… though these babies are what my feet really need this season.

Ok I just checked their site and it’s true; 30% off “everything” in store and online.  Online discount code is “CELEBRATE.”

I mean…

#7 ==> Hey.  Have you been to an H&M recently?  Here are some of my fave picks from a visit this week (yes I bought these things because no one thing was more than $5.  Five dollars!!!):

Above was the uber cute (did I seriously just say uber) display at the Columbus Circle store.

I would rather speak with Ryan Gosling using Facetime (aka, I Always Look Terribletime), than see another one of these damned Keep Calm posters.  Let it go.

Oh, speaking of Ryan Gosling.

#8 ==> For one of my favorite ‘Best Things’ today, we have something really special.  In fact it’s probably the very best thing ever in the history of having orgasms that blind you.  <– perhaps the greatest gift of all.  So before I share it, I’d personally like to extend my sincere and heartfelt thanks to everyone who told me about the article in the first place.  Which was an alarming amount of people.  So many, that it led to a brief introspective period on my part, earlier in the week.  But I digress.

And so now I present to you, my official choice for this month’s “Miss Baby Goose 2012 Ultimate Supreme Princess” in the category of: Loaded with Hot Images of Ryan Gosling Flexing/Walking Places with Her.  (Well, my official choice UNTIL I ATTEMPT, IMPOSSIBLY, TO TOP BUZZFEED’s GOSLING PROWESS BEFORE THE NEW YEAR ARRIVES, AND THEN RE-JUDGE THE PAGEANT UNFAIRLY).  Anyway, the article.  In the meantime, the following are my two fave pics of him from that post.  Do share which ones were your faves in the comments, if you’re into him I mean.  I know not everybody’s into him.  My mom, for one, doesn’t get the fascination.  And I don’t get the fascination with John Travolta, mom.  So we’re even.

For some extra fun, peruse the many times I’ve TMI’d all over the Gosling right here on the blog.

#9 ==>  Best Self-Tanner I’ve tried, and I’ve tried many, is Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel.  OMG get this if you’re in the market for it.  My mom introduced me to this brand a couple months back and I’m hooked for life now.  Self tanning gel is the single reason I can still go out in public during the wintertime.

#10 ==>  Is this gift for a girl in your life?  TAKE HER (or buy tickets so she and her mom can go) TO THIS:

Are you an actual girl?  Then enjoy THIS just for the sake of it:

#11 ==>  The complete discography of John Mayer.   Shut up I know.  But seriously.  You know you love him.

xx!  Hope you like the list!  And its last-minute-feasibility-ness! (assuming you have transportation to/from a mall!)

Have you gotten all your holiday shopping done?  Or are you all over the place like me?  And any faves from above?

-Alison

P.S. – I’m still trying to figure out a way to top Bambino’s holiday outfit from last year’s post… any suggestions for a look you’d like to see on him?  I’m open.  

P.P.S….

Label(s): Mr. McPuppyPants, {Holiday}

Love all of this...
