Christmas is quickly approaching and I’m already thinking about my gift giving plans. Have you started shopping? Are you finished? I do not belong in either of those categories. I tell myself every year that I will start my gift buying in October. Ha-ha!! Never happens. I have good intentions but sketchy follow through.
When it comes to gift giving I always think about two things:
1. What does the receiver of the gift like/enjoy?
2. Would I like to receive this gift?
Sounds vain doesn’t it? I swear it’s not intended to be. It has actually served me well over the years. How you ask? Well let’s be honest, sometimes you just have no clue what to get someone. You know their favorites but sometimes that well runs dry. So you have to start from scratch. For example, last Christmas one of my friends received a sampler pack of mascaras from Sephora. When she told me about it I instantly thought I want that too!! And then it hit me – I’ll get that for my sister in law. I knew her likes and interests but I didn’t want to keep getting her the same thing every year. The mascara sampler was such a great idea I knew she would love it too. And I was right, it was a hit!!
So I thought I would share some of my gifting favorites of this year! I don’t know about you but I’m always looking for new and different gift ideas. And maybe this will help you with your Christmas list too😉
This is a cute, inexpensive, perfect for all seasons gift. Do you know someone who just bought a house or loves to decorate outdoor spaces? This might be the perfect gift.
Ahhh yea. This is so true these days.
Who doesn’t want Chip & Joanna Gaines everything in their home? I love this scent and I think the jar is adorable and could definitely be recycled for another use!
Dear Husband: I want this. Is it Gin or is it Espresso? Either way it’s a great traveling mug.
First Things First.
I love this BP scarf. It’s a great accessory that could go with so many outfits. Everyone needs something with animal print on it… right?
Steaming clothing seems so much more dreamy then ironing. I also think I️ might be the last soul on earth that irons. Also, this would be great for someone who is a traveler.
I tried these on at Target and wanted to take them home with me. I resisted, but it was difficult. These are awesome!!! Buy a pair for a loved one and yourself!
Ohhh Kate Spade….
Kate Spade Take 2. These would make work at the office better. They would for me anyway.
$25 Dollars and Up
This gold and tortoise necklace is the cutest. Dress it up or dress it down. Perfect jewelry staple.
I love quilted pattern anything these days. If you follow my Instagram you might have noticed. This would be such a cute tote for work or the gym. You decide 🙂
Planner lover? Me too. I love the floral cover on this one and the fact that it’s hardcover. If you have never used a planner you should do it next year. New Years Resolution Time.
This Baublebar necklace is so stunning and classic. A must have in my book.
This Naked Palette is such a beautiful assortment of colors. Perfect for the lover of make-up and choices:)
This Sole Society tote comes in a two colors and I love how chic it looks with it’s simple detailing. Sold!!!
Pottery Barn has really hit the mark with this jewelry binder. This looks like it could solve hours of time spent on tangled necklaces and searching for loose stud earrings.
This Sole Society Weekender bag is so cute!! The best thing about it is the bottom zipper compartment for shoes- Genius.
I hope this was helpful in some way!! Take care and enjoy your holiday shopping!!
