We celebrate Christmas with everyone on my mom's side of the family which means it's one of the few times a year all nine cousins are in the same place! My grandmother likes us to open presents one by one so everyone can appreciate the thought that went into each gift. It makes the magic of Christmas last a little bit longer and it's always fun to see what everyone had in mind while doing their Christmas shopping. For the past few years it's safe to say we've had a very J.Crew Christmas... :)

J.Crew is probably the one place where all of us — girls and boys — can find something we have to have so it's kind of a slam dunk for giving and getting. What's your one-stop holiday shop? Do you celebrate with your immediate or extended family? I can't believe it's only 19 days away!

Keep up with Design Darling

I love this post! I did (almost) all of my shopping for the men in my life on J.Crew or J.Crew Factory this year! It felt great to get it all done in one swing. I loooove that scalloped bikini, too!

I think it's safe to say that JCrew dominates every one of my wishlists all year long! They still reign as my favorite store ever, which is a long long time! Love all your picks!

My mom always makes us open gifts one by one- she says it makes it more special and I kind of agree! I will take one of everything from J.Crew- sounds like my kind of Christmas!

J Crew is perfect! If I'm on a budget I can find a million things at Target for everyone!


Mandy Russell said...

Love all of these picks..especially the necklace! We do the same with opening gifts one by one each year. When I was younger it drove me crazy, but as I have gotten older, I love it! It's fun to see what everyone else is receiving and really enjoy the time together.

We had to open gifts one by one... and my mom handed them out so she would save the best for last! The excitement would build around the tree all morning!

My family's Christmases are very Vineyard Vines! Adorable picks. :)
