Trueprep: Christmas Edition

Now that Thanksgiving is over and the snow is falling, there is something I must admit: I have a slight obsession with Christmas time (and by slight I mean quite extreme). You may or may not know this, reader, but I go a little overboard when it comes to the holiday season. As soon as the turkey is put away, the last piece of pumpkin pie is devoured, and my father is fast asleep on his chair by the fire, it begins. “It” entails decorating with as many lights as I can find around the house, consuming copious amounts of baked goods, and listening to Nat King Cole Christmas carols for days on end. I even make my dog wear stupid Santa hats and mistletoe… poor Liberty never has a chance. However, when I’m wrapped up in all this holiday spirit (no pun intended…), I seem to forget that others do not 100% share my enthusiasm all the time – much to my chagrin. Friends have shared with me that although they see tons of products they would love to have during the year, when it comes to the gifting season, they have no idea what they want. In response I say, “Cheer up, Scrooge! I have PLENTY of gifts that can help jog your memory.” They then reply with a joyous “Whipee!” and we skip off together to Candy Cane Land to enjoy our holiday treats. (Alright, maybe that part I made up but who doesn’t want to visit a place called Candy Cane Land???) So to help all of you get an idea of what you may want under your tree, menorah, etcetera here is my basic Christmas list that I’ll be placing in an envelope and mailing to the North Pole ASAP. Happy Chrismahannakwanzaa and don’t forget to stay preppy. <3

The Confessions of trueprep

Dear Readers,

I have a confession. I was trifling through my things getting ready to leave my house for a day trip and came to the realization that I have a serious problem. It’s called monogramitis. This terrible disease is basically the need to monogram everything one owns. From pillow cases to gym shorts to my backpack, I have my initials on practically everything. Not only is monogramitis a personal issue, but it is infectious and has caused many of my friends to start down its dangerous path. It has proven quite difficult for me not to adore things that are specifically mine and cannot be mistaken for anyone else’s so I have decided that, despite how risky this is, I need to share my love of monogrammed items with all of you. I have found Converse shoes, iPhone cases, virtually indestructible “Roadie” cups, and rain boots that can be monogrammed to your liking. (By the way, Vineyard Vines also has phone cases that make me happier than a five-year-old in Disney World.) If monogrammed things aren’t for you, that’s fine too. I discovered some classy knit bow ties to keep you/your guy’s preppy neck warm for the fall and winter and some tacky shorts to watch the London Olympics in. Enjoy!

Send in pictures of your favorite monogrammed item to the Twines & Vines Twitter page and you may be featured on our Instagram!

<3 Stay Preppy
