Merry Christmas Eve, friends! I hope you guys have the most wonderful holiday surrounded by loved ones. With family visiting this time of year, I’ve booked a few larger airbnbs lately and have gotten lots of requests for the listings! We lucked out with both rentals – one in Hudson, NY and one in the Boston area (I’ll share this listing after we check out) – as they’ve been clean, comfortable spaces with well-stocked kitchens that are great to cook in.
Below are a few more photos of the Hudson home we rented. This was a nicely restored house in a rustic style with modern touches, and had plenty of bedrooms to accommodate our group. It was about a 10 minute walk to the central Warren Street – we would’ve liked to be a little closer, but we walked there each day with the stroller and it wasn’t bad!
The BP sweater I’m wearing here has been a favorite to lounge in lately and would also make a super cozy gift. True to its name, the material is very soft and fluffy, and the petite-friendly length is on the shorter side. The overall silhouette has a slouchy chic cut to it with slight dolman style sleeves. I wanted petite jogger pants and these Gibson ones fit well (I would actually go a size up for a looser fit, in hindsight) but note these are lightweight and did pill on me after a few wears. They are lounge at-home instead of wearing outdoors pants, so my search continues for thicker petite-friendly jogger pants that can be worn out in athleisure outfits – suggestions are welcome!
For my fellow last-minute shoppers, I’m partnering with Nordstrom to share about their buy online, pick up in store service which I rely on for same-day gifts! Just browse their website and filter for stock at your closest store. Our local store also has curbside pickup service, so I text once we’re in the parking lot and they bring the order right out to your car (this is glorious when a sleeping baby in the backseat is involved!). Some of my tried and true gifts from Nordstrom under $100 include:
- For mom, MIL or sister: Ugg water resistant slippers, on sale (another sale style; I usually go half size up)
- For anyone needing something cozy: can’t tell you how many times I’ve gifted this Bobeau fleece cardigan (wearing it as I type!)
- For music lovers: Bose micro bluetooth speaker
- For your guy: Topman bomber jacket (I gifted Nick a prior year version – see his fit review for this year’s!)
- For colleagues: Sugarfina gift sets are always a hit
Thank you to Nordstrom for partnering on this post.
