Friday Five :: Gourmet Goodies

One of the best parts about going to Market in Atlanta is their amazing gourmet foods section! Every year that we go, we find fun new kitchen gadgets, gorgeous cookbooks, and of course yummy foods and treats. This year didn’t disappoint!

Here are a few of the new gourmet goodies we found!

Friday Five :: Valentine’s Day

This year is flying by – it’s hard to believe that it’s already the end of January! That means Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and it’s definitely not too early to start planning. Whether it’s something special for your someone special, or a fun little surprise for kids, grandkids, or friends – here are 5 gift ideas to get you started!

Jon Hart

Get your order in TODAY for free monogramming! We love Jon Hart for gifts because they have something for everyone. Great gifts for guys (the shave kit, duffle bags, koozies, and boot bags are the most popular!), fun little bags and purses for girls, and functional totes and makeup bags for women.

Plus, in the new year, Jon Hart introduced several new items – including this fun mint color and several new items to their leather goods line!

In Atlanta, we found new brands of kitchen and home goods that make great gifts! The pops of color and fun patterns are the perfect addition to a gift basket and are sure to brighten someone’s day!

Gift Ideas at B. WhimsyValentine’s Tees

Many of you have been eagerly waiting for new clothes to arrive at B. Whimsy – and we are excited to say we have gotten in some really cute new tunics, tops, dresses, and scarves!

We also got in a couple of new graphic tees for Valentine’s Day. Yesterday on Instagram, we posted this cute graphic sweatshirt, but what you couldn’t see – the so adorable heart shaped elbow patches. We also got in this LOVE baseball tee. And we LOVE them both!

Eleventh Day of Christmas

Thank you so much to everyone who celebrated our 10th Day of Christmas yesterday at our annual open house! Like always, we had so much fun helping you decorate for the holidays and pick out gifts for loved ones (and maybe a few things for yourself too!) We truly appreciate the wonderful support we get from this community and those who travel to see us!

Today, for the 11th Day, we are sharing 11 looks at our Mark Roberts fairies and Santas. We know that for many of you, it’s not Christmas without one of the newest fairies! This year, we are loving some of their speciality items too – like decorative wine bags and stocking holders!

Kari has been busy adding the fairies to arrangements and, of course, decorating the signature B. Whimsy Fairy Arch!

Tomorrow we will wrap up our 12 Days of Christmas with a giveaway! So be looking for instructions on how to enter!

Nine Looks at Mariana

On the ninth day of Christmas… nine looks at our newest Mariana!

In years past, our Open House shoppers have mostly focused on home decor items, as they gear up to decorate their homes. We want to remind you that it’s a great time to cross some items off your Christmas Gift List too. And Mariana is definitely a favorite gift!

We’ve gotten in a new selection just for this week’s event. We stocked up on the popular clears and pearls, as well as some fun Christmas looks – reds and greens. Here are a few looks at what we have new!

8th Day of Christmas

On the 8th Day of Christmas, we are highlighting 8 Holiday Scents (all of which will be 20% off on Thursday at our Christmas Open House!)

Candles and holiday scents are one of the easiest ways to make your home feel cozy and cheery this time of year. We have lots of new products this year, plus some of your annual favorites.

Stock up for gifts and yourself at our Christmas Open House on Thursday!

15XmasOpenHouseHere are a few of our new and favorite holiday scents!

We introduced the NEST brand last year and everyone has loved it! Their candles are so fragrant and last a really long time. Last year, I bought one of the 3-wick candles for Christmas, burned it pretty regularly, and it lasted until May! This year they introduced a new scent, Hearth. This has been our go-to candle while we’ve been decorating for Christmas – it definitely has a hint of holiday, without being too winter-y or Christmas-y.

Holiday Candles by B. WhimsyWe also have the popular Holiday scent (shown in the jumbo 5-wick candle!) and the Birchwood Pine scent (shown in their new candle + diffuser gift set).

Christmas Candles by B. WhimsyOne of the most popular scents so far this season hasn’t been a candle at all – it’s these new firestarters, that come in scents like coffee, cinnamon, fresh cut pine, and maple bacon. These make a fun gift!

Christmas Gifts by B. WhimsySpeaking of non-candles, we’re excited about Mixture’s granite cleaner in Siberian Fir. Great for making your house spic and span for company and also smelling like Christmas instead of bleach!

Christmas by B. WhimsyBack by popular demand, we have in a new selection of Frasier Fir products – candles, sink sets, room spray, and diffusers!

Christmas Candles by B. WhimsyIf you’re not quite ready for Christmas, we also have a selection of pumpkin candles and diffusers for Thanksgiving!

Fall Candles by B. WhimsyAnd last but not least – we hear so often that people love the look and smell of candles, but don’t like having the open flame. Our collection of flameless candles have been such a great alternative! And we LOVE the new glitter candles for the holidays! Add a diffuser nearby and you get the look and scent of candles without the flame!

4th Day of Christmas :: 4 Ways to Give

The #purchasewithpurpose movement has really taken off lately. So many products are coming to market that exist to contribute to greater good. This Holiday season, as we all look for ways to give back, these products with a purpose are perfect gifts – both for your friends and family and for those who benefit from their charity.

For our 4th Day of Christmas this year, here are 4 gift ideas that give back too.

Purpose Coffee

Started here in Dalhart, Purpose Coffee offers gourmet coffees, with all proceeds benefitting child wellness projects around the world. $5 of each bag goes to mission work in the same ares where the coffee originates. They are sponsoring projects like improving access to clean water and providing vitamins to undernourished kids, rescuing orphans and placing them in permanent care, and equipping schools and providing school fees and supplies.

They recently introduced a bold Colombian roast and a light chocolate-y Ethiopian roast, in addition to the original Thai roast – all available at B. Whimsy!

PurposeCoffee

Bridgewater Candles

Pair your bag of coffee with a holiday candle, and you have an awesome gift set! Our new line of Bridgewater Candles also aim to help kids in developing countries. With the purchase of a candle, 3 meals are provided to a hungry child. So one candle feeds a kid for an entire day!

(And the candles smell great too!)

Christmas Gift Ideas by B. Whimsy

Unwined Candles

Here’s another candle with a purpose behind it – but this company’s mission is to reduce, reuse, recycle, and relax. These unique candles are made from recycled wine, beer, or liquor bottles that would otherwise clutter our landfills. Pick up their Holidaze seasonal candle or one of their awesome everyday scents!

Vera Bradley Breast Cancer Awareness Pattern

Vera Bradley started a foundation for breast cancer research – and they always introduce a pattern from which the proceeds are used to fund the foundation. Their current pattern is this fun pink and blue geo pattern – available in lots of different products! Vera Bradley is always one of the most popular teacher gifts, stocking stuffers, and gifts for girls!

Vera Bradley at B. Whimsy—————————

Hope everyone finds a few ways to #purchasewithpurpose this season! And, hint hint, for our 5th day of Christmas we will send out the announcement via text. So, make sure you’ve joined our mobile community before then! If aren’t a part of it, you can join by texting the word BWHIMSY to the number 40691, then follow the prompts on the screen!

Friday Five :: Jon Hart Specials

If you follow us on social media, you’ve probably seen that we decorated for Christmas a few days ago. One of our favorite parts of the Christmas season last year was our 12 Days of Christmas, where we featured different gift ideas, shared decor tips, hosted giveaways, and sent out coupons. So, we are bringing the 12 Days back this year – and kicking them off on Tuesday!

12 Days of Christmas at B. Whimsy

On the first day of B. Whimsy Christmas, we will bring to you… One Jon Hart Giveaway! Our rep will be here to host our first Jon Hart Christmas Trunk Show, with specials on some of their most popular items as well as free monograms. Come by the store to enter to win the giveaway!

For our Friday Five this week, here are a few of them items that are on special! (If you can’t make it on Tuesday, we will be honoring sale prices and free monograming today and Saturday as well!)
