Last-Minute Luxury Gifts for Her

We are getting down to the wire here, with just a little over a week before Christmas. It can be hard to find the perfect gift, but it doesn't have to be. With online shopping, you can find some really great items she'll love, and ones that  don't cost a fortune either.

Etsy can be a great place to find something beautiful and unique. Some items on Etsy have a longer processing time, but some, particularly the jewelry and candle shops, tend to have things ready-made. Thus you're bound to find some very beautiful and unique gifts. You just have to check the deadline for Christmas in each shop's announcements. Some will even work with you on rush orders, so it never hurts to ask!

Snapshots from the Week


I've been posting to Instagram relentlessly over the weekend, and when I sat down to unload my DSLR pics onto my laptop, my tired little Toshiba displayed "downloading 255 images." Between a lovely stay at the Renaissance hotel and a trip to the Oklahoma Bridal show, this week's snapshots were a matter of editing down, that's for sure. Pictured: Sony A330 Digital SLR

I hope you had a lovely weekend and are enjoying the holiday. If you're working anyway, as I am, at least you can justify taking it easy today and distracting yourself from your responsibilities, with social media and your favorite websites. If for some reason that includes this blog...thank you!


The Renaissance Tulsa hotel was my favorite hotel stay in town so far. I look forward to sharing it in my new Checking In column.


Before checking in, we spent a few hours at the Oklahoma wedding show, sampling yummy cake and enjoying the bridal runway show. Cake by La Villa di Dulce.


For dinner, my fiance and I went to Abuelos near the hotel, and oh my word, I forgot how much I love this restaurant. The decor is amazing, the service is good, and the food is both delicious and affordable. Definitely going back there.


We finished off the evening in the hotel bar with a glass of Pinot and a glass of Merlot...both very yummy. I'm trying to save the hotel info for my actual hotel post, but I have to say that sitting in the courtyard of the Renaissance, in candlelight and with the waterfall sounds coming from the koi pond (yup, and indoor koi pond in their courtyard), all of the stresses of the week faded away, and we smiled at each other like, "Yeah, we're coming back here in the future."

    1. Thanks, Mary.:) It was okay. I have to say the cakes that were by far the most yummy were by a place called Merritt's Bakery in Tulsa.

  2. This getaway looks so sublime! I want to eat about 5 pieces of that cake and i'm not normally a cake person! I've been to a bridal show before and they are absolutely stellar. Hope you enjoyed yourself and got inspired!
