Finding a fancy gift for every person on your holiday shopping list can be daunting!

One of my favorite gift ideas this season are monogrammed mugs from Anthropologie. I received two of these as a wedding gift and use them every day! I also gave one of these as a gift last year to one of my fancy friends who really enjoyed it. They make me smile.

At just $6 a pop, you may be able to afford to throw in some tea or coffee samples as well. Consider buying the coffee from a local shop that roasts the coffee beans in house. Try White Rock Coffee in Highland Park or Peace Coffee for a delicious brew!
