Christmas Gift Wrapping Ideas

Yesterday I almost finished my Christmas wrapping and thought I would share a few ideas.

When I wrap I like to wait until I have about 10 or more gifts and then get out all my supplies and make it a fun night.  
I put on my favorite youtube channel and tuck right in.

Last year I started using decorative boxes with a few wrapped in paper.
It makes it so much faster and the boxes I will reuse year after year.  This is better for the environment too.
I use boxes from our shop and from Sugar Paper found here.

The inside of the boxes are so pretty that no tissue paper is required.
When the tree comes down I pack up the boxes and store for the next year.
They are all nesting boxes so it makes storing them a cinch.

Since my two boys were little I would build excitement by slipping a few gifts under the tree as Christmas approaches.
I will put little hints on tags as to what is inside.  I have done this for years.  
They are older now, but I still can't resist.

And because my mountain biking boys are missing riding in the mountains
I brought some evergreens to them.

When I purchase a gift I write it down in my planner and then when it's wrapped I check it off.  
I try to have the same number of prezzies for each boy.

We will be open late tonight until 7 p.m. and would love to help you wrap!

We can text gift cards right up until Christmas Eve.  Text (801) 232-3276 for the details.

Happy Holidays!

Red Austrian Crystals and Late Night Walks

Yesterday we received a pendant necklace from La Vie Parisienne in a beautiful red Austrian crystal.

The photos don't do it justice, but scroll down to see how it catches the lights.

We ordered this in for a customer last week and when it arrived we knew we needed more.

Earrings available too.

Austrian crystals are cut to attract light.

We are also enjoying our new candles from Illume.  The blue green and pink jars are beautiful.


And we have a few new arrivals to Madeleine's Closet!

A tan trench-style wool coat.  It's 1/2 off!  And a pretty matching leopard scarf.

This is definitely the busiest time of year and my favorite.  I wish time could slow down.  
There are so many things I still want to do.  
Enzo and I walk late at night because that's when I finally get the time and he loves the cold.

The great thing about walking late is a leash is optional.  
He loves a bit of freedom and I love to look at everyone's pretty holiday lights.

At night it's been in the twenties so the formula to stay warm
is three pairs of tights under skinny jeans.  haha 
Over the last month I have gone from one to three pairs.
Not the most attractive look, but it works.


Treats from the BEST shop neighbor who also lives in my neighborhood and has a stunning home.
If you are local and haven't eaten at Vito's put it on your holiday list!

Much love!

Illuminate your Holidays

Noel and Fa La La votive candles $10

Our holiday line from Illume has been one of our best-sellers

and we quickly sold out of our Balsam and Cedar large candles.

We were never able to order their popular gift set, as the company sold out,

until now!

We have a waiting list for the Balsam and Cedar gift set

and it arrives today!

If you are on the waiting list one will be held for you.

I was told about this item from a new customer who loves it 
and tried to repurchase it at Anthropologie,
but they were sold out and we came up as an Illume shop.

I'm excited to get a few for myself for last-minute gifts!

We love to listen to our customers' recommendations 
and we are happy to track items down for you.

Love to have you!

Hand-knitted with Love

Our Madeleine hand-knitted scarves are now available in pink and cream

and soon available in black and cream and red and cream.

(custom colors are available upon request)

For years I have worn a beautiful black and cream flower scarf like
this one.  Everywhere I go people ask me about it.  It's my favorite and most-worn scarf.
It's been so long ago that I purchased it that don't remember where I got it.
So finally we had one made.
Just for us.
And it's beautiful.


Featured with our new line of affordable jewelry.

Earrings $8, Necklaces $12

Comes in the cutest packaging too!

It reminds me of this beautiful necklace found here.

If you are looking for a luxury gift this would be perfect.

Holiday Gifts

With Christmas right around the corner

we have pre-wrapped gifts under $20 wrapped up and ready to go!

These petite candles from Illume make great gifts for teachers, friends,

and stocking stuffers.

My dress is from here.

Enzo is ready for Christmas!

We are so grateful that he is doing a bit better and going to see Santa another year.  
He turns 13 in February and when we adopted him he was four years old
and the vet thought he would live to be about ten.
Daily walks and belly rubs really do make a difference!

Pink peppermint almonds available at the shop in pre-wrapped packages for gifting.


Thank you so much for visiting!
