Farm Girl Gift Guide

Good news for all you last minute shoppers desperately seeking gifts for that special farm girl in your life! Here's a gift guide to help you make all her down-home dreams come true. Included are a few of my all-time favorite possessions, plus a few I'm hoping to find under the tree. Sure to please any lucky farm girl on your list...

1. Nothing beats a Le Crueset dutch over for cooking up buttery, belly-filling casseroles. I treasure the goldenrod yellow model that I inherited from my grandmother. Fifty years later, it still gets the job done.

2. My all-time favorite hoodie, Crescent Sunshine, by The North Face. Looks great with jeans and boots, but also comfy enough for lounging around the house.

3. It's never to early to start planning your garden! This nifty gadget turns newspaper into starter pots. Talk about up-cycling!

4. This room spray smells fantastic and does wonders when a certain someone brings stinky barn boots indoors.

5. Forget Team Edward or Jacob, the real question is Rhett, or Ashley? Winter is a wonderful time to crack open an epic tome like Gone With The Wind. A classic edition will look great on your farm girls lap now, and on her bookshelf later.

6. Burt's Bees lip balm is my go-to for kissable lips all winter long.

7. Every farm girl needs a sassy apron.

8. Feeling poetic?  Moleskine journals travel well, thanks to the elastic strap that keeps them shut tight, so you can capture your whimsy on-the-go.

9. I am absolutely in love with Darn Tough socks, the most comfy, rugged socks around. Made right here in Vermont, they are guaranteed for life. Her toes will thank you.

10. It's worth investing in a good pair of Felco pruners. Woody plants heal faster when clipped with good shears. She'll think of you every time she trims her roses or cuts a bouquet of lilacs. 

11. Farm girls love unfussy, nature-inspired jewelry. Dangling gold earring looks great with broken-in jeans!

 12. There's nothing like a thick glob of Weleda Skin Food to make your weathered hands feel shiny and new again. I keep a tube handy at the kitchen sink so I remember to lather up after washing the dishes. A must for any gal frequenting sub-zero winter climates, like me.

Merry Christmas!
