His and Hers Christmas Gifts

I hope everyone had a peaceful and lovely Christmas.  On this Monday after Christmas, I thought I would share with you what J and I got for each other this Christmas.  Let's just say personalized gifts was the name of the game this year.

First up, my gift to J.  While watching an episode of Modern Family (one of our favorite new shows), J admired a decanter set Marshall drank from.  That got my wheels turning.  J is more of a gin drinker than a whiskey drinker, but I figured any type of alcohol would taste great when poured out of a personalized decanter.  I also picked up two glasses for him to sip from.  

I added a little message to the back of the decanter so that years from now we would remember when and where it came from.  It's a little hard to read in the photos since gin is clear but it says Eat, Drink and Merry Christmas!

J got me a beautiful jewelry box which he personalized with a message inside.  I promised him I wouldn't share the message but here are some pictures.  The top is an etched mirror with two little birdies sitting on a branch.  The mirrored surface made it hard to get a great photo of it but it is beautiful!

It has room for lots of rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets--just what I need because right now they are all in little boxes on a shelf in my bathroom!  This means I can never find what I'm looking for since I have to open multiple little boxes each time!

I love that it has a second drawer for bigger items too!

So those where our Christmas gifts to each other this year.  I think we did pretty well and it was definitely one to remember since it was our first as a married couple and the first we've spent together in the five (almost six) years of our relationship!

What did you get your honey for Christmas this year?


  1. I got Matt tons of clothes since most of his are threadbare and also I got him a Shutterfly book of all pictures of us, with a little story about how we fell in love. <3 He said it was the best of all the presents. :)

  2. Aww that Shutterfly book sounds awesome! What a great idea! :)

  3. I love the chest. I did something similar for my mom this year as her Christmas present.

  4. Thanks! Yeah, he did pretty good this year :)
