How many of you are all done with your Christmas shopping? If you’re like me and wait till last min because you are either too busy or simply like to procrastinate, then here is my gift to you – A gift guide to kick you right back on track. I read a lot of gift guides, and its crazy how most of them don’t have any gifts I would ever actually buy no matter how desperate I am. I have no idea who picks those and “recommends” them, but I am here to give you something that will ease your mind. Everything that I am going to post is something I would give to someone or something I would love to get myself. I would never buy something for someone else that I wouldn’t also buy for myself. Also, if you don’t have time to run to the mall, go online. The selection is even better online, and you don’t have to wait in line to pay. A lot of places have free shipping around the holidays as well. And if its December 24th and you still haven’t finished your shopping, then there is always gift cards!
Happy Shopping and thanks for reading!
Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram for all my holiday looks.
CANDLES are a great gift, and who doesn’t love candles? My go to places for nice candles are: Z Gallerie, Henri Bendel, and Southmoonunder. Below are some of my favorites. The Vanilla bean candle from Henri Bendel is amazing! I have to give the credit to my sister for this one. She loves it so much that I bought it for her last year as a gift and figured I would get one for myself to see what its all about. I am now obsessed!
JEWELRY: Everyone loves jewelry. You can get really amazing pieces at stores like H&M, Princee P. Jewelry, Francesca’s, and Southmoonunder. If you are looking for something faaaaancy try Nordstrom or Swarovski. Here are a few of my favorites:
MAKEUP: you can never go wrong with jewelry or makeup and a gift receipt just in case you got the wrong color. I usually shop at Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Ulta, and Lorac. And this is the season of “gift with purchase” meaning not only do you feel good because you just found the perfect gift for your BFF, but you also got something for finding the perfect gift for your BFF!
If you know someone who does not own an Urban Decay Naked Palate, its your duty as their friend to get them one. I don’t know how anyone can survive without it.
I also love lip gloss gift sets because I like to put together gifts for my friends. I take apart these gift sets and then add individual glosses to gifts.
ORNAMENTS: Are always really great additions to any gift. I love personalized ornaments. Nordstrom always has a great selection and usually every mall has a “Holiday” store where they can personalize ornaments. Sur La Table has very cute food related ornaments.
FOR THE HOME: Z Gallerie is the best, they have a great selection of accessories like candles, candle holders, coasters, place mats, etc. I love this stardust tealight holder and these mirrored coasters.
PAJAMAS: After all we are going into the frozen tundra season unless you are one of the lucky ones that live in a warmer climate. My favorite PJs are Victorias Secret. I have a pair of flannel and satin ones. I love the flannel ones when its really cold and satin all the other times. Right now VS has free 2 day shipping on orders over $100 so you don’t even have to leave your house.
HAT, SCARF, AND GLOVES: I mean it is winter after all.
