Valentine’s Day Gift Guide 2017

How sweet is this old photograph of Rob’s grandparents? It’s from their dating days back in Cuba. The joy on their faces is enough to make even a stranger feel love and when we asked his grandpa to send over a few old photos (to have in our home), this one immediately brought a smile to our faces. It’s photos like these that remind us why we love documenting everything so much. It’s so special to have these memories to look back on and share years down the road. Can’t wait to have this framed, along with a few others. ūüôā

With¬†Valentine’s Day right around the corner, we thought we’d share a few fun gift ideas that¬†would be perfect for any guy or gal in your life. ūüôā READ MORE

Holiday Gift Guide: The Go-Getter

Each season we try to start a littler earlier with checking a few gifts off our shopping list and every year we fall victim to the same go-to gifts for our loved ones. We’ve been trying to think outside the box a little bit and find some useful and fun gifts those close to us. We’ll be sharing a series of gift guides over the next few weeks and thought we’d kick things off with some gift ideas for the “go-getter” in your life. Think: the one who loves being outdoors, into music and all the new gadgets, the one who’s always ready for anything, the adventurer.

Holiday Gift Guide for Him with UGG

New Darlings - Holiday Gift Ideas for Him with UGGLast night we drove back from Joshua tree (that place was such a dream!), picked up a pizza to-go on the way home, curled up, and watched The Santa Clause by the tree. As much as we look forward to Christmas day, the build up and little traditions carried out during the holiday season is our favorite. The music, movies, gift giving…just call us Clark Griswold. We love it all!

New Darlings - Cluse for the Holidays

It feels SO¬†good to have the house decorated for the holidays. At first it felt a little silly busting out the holiday decorations as quickly as we did, but with designs and decor up in the air for most of the rooms in the house (we can’t wait to mix things up a bit), it’s been nice having¬†a room that feels somewhat complete. When we take everything down in January, it’s going to be a sad day in this bare living room, but¬†that’s a ways away. For now, we’ve been enjoying trimming the tree and adding little holiday touches here and there. Picking up some fresh garland for the mantle and the¬†archways makes everything feel so cozy. A few of you guys asked on instagram if we made it — I wish! We picked it up from a local nursery: Berridge Nursery in Phoenix. If you’re in the area, definitely check them out. It’s where we get most of our house plants too.¬† READ MORE

Father’s Day Gift Guide with Jack Spade

New Darlings - Father's Day - Gift Guide New Darlings - Father's Day - Gift GuideFather’s Day is coming up and we thought it would be fun (and hopefully helpful) to share some gift ideas. We both have a tough time shopping for our dads…it feels like they have everything they need and they are both kind of work-a-holics. So what can you get them that would feel like a little indulgence or special treat, while still being thoughtful along with a hand written note? Usually around any holiday there are a ton of gift guides floating around the internet and they all have a similar feel. Our dads couldn’t be any more different from one another…one likes sports the other likes cars. One is a little more handy around the house, and the other enjoys the outdoors. One goes to work with a suit and tie each day, and the other works with his hands. So with our very different dads in mind we rounded up a few our favorite items from Jack Spade, that will hopefully give you a few gift ideas for your dad too! They have a great selection of classic pieces, for every type of guy. We may or may not have focused on some travel essentials for them, that would be perfect for when they visit¬†AZ…hint, hint. ūüėČ (Hello, dads trip!!)

Stocking Stuffer Ideas

We both shared the same tradition as¬†kids…opening up our stockings last to see a little surprise on Christmas morning. One thing we always wait til the last minute for around the holidays are stocking stuffers. ¬†Sometimes we end up throwing in a few candy canes, a gift card or two, and some chocolates. ¬†While those all are fun treats, we wanted to come up with¬†some stocking stuffer ideas that were a bit¬†more¬†useful and thoughtful¬†this year. ¬†¬†Here are some of our favorite¬†gift ideas, all small enough to fit in a holiday stocking, while still making a big impact. ūüôā READ MORE
