Holiday season is upon us. While I usually enjoy frantically maneuvering through the mall for last minute gift purchases (it just feels festive) this season I’ve finished a large chunk of my shopping already. I have a few gift guides planned over the next few weeks but I thought I would start with my own “wish list” to kick off the season. I put together this “wish list” as inspiration for your shopping, I know if I have my eye on an item there is a good chance you guys will love it or know someone who would love it too. Though, if you want to hit up Nordstrom and buy a piece or two for me I’ll promise to squeal with delight and act surprised when you give it to me (:
My Holiday Wish List
Camel Jacket| A classic camel jacket can be dressed up or down for work or play. I love this sophisticated Ralph Lauren version that is currently ON SALE! Grab it for your sister, Mom, bestie or treat yourself (I promise not to tell).
Spa Facial (or a really great at home mask)| I am a skincare fanatic but don’t usually splurge on a facial for myself. I had a facial so luxurious it put me to sleep this summer while I was in Germany and I’ve been dreaming about another ever since. Drop by a local spa and grab a gift card for someone who needs a little extra luxury in their lives (many spas offer discounts and specials around the holidays) or pick up an at home facial product like this one I’ve been dying to try.
Cashmere Scarf| An ivory cashmere scarf goes with pretty much everything and will keep you cozy for the cool months to follow. I love a classic cashmere piece because it’s timeless meaning your money is well spent on an investment piece rather than a trend that will fade out of fashion by next season. Another great option instead (or in addition to) a scarf, super soft cashmere gloves or cashmere mittens #AllTheCashmerePlease.
Fashion Coffee Table Books| I collect fashion coffee table books and stack them around my living room (don’t worry I actually read them first). I have a few on my list include: The World in Vogue: People, Parties, Places, Barbie Style and Claudia Schiffer.
House Plant| Bring a little life into the home of somebody you love with a pretty plant. Be sure to pick up a pretty planter like this hanging one from Anthropologie (and while you’re at it can you pick up the whole shop for me?).
Gucci Wallet| Really treat yourself with this whimsical piece from Gucci, available in pink and black, the wallet is at the top of my lust list.
Elle Woods Mug| I love browsing Etsy for unique gift ideas, in fact search any book/movie/television show you or someone you love likes and you can really fall down a rabbit hole. If you know a law student or Elle Woods fan this “I feel comfortable using legal jargon in everyday sentences” is a fab gift sure to make the receiver smile.
Super Chic Candle| In the winter I light a candle the moment I get home from school/work, it’s just a cozy ritual that calms me down and helps ease any tension from the day. You can’t go wrong with a Diptyque candle (or set of three) and of course Anthropolgie always has beautiful candles to gift at a reasonable price point (this one and this one are so pretty)
Silk Sleep Set| The gift that every girl wants but no one will splurge on for herself, this luxe silk sleep set is sure to enhance your beauty sleep.
Laila Ballet Slipper Pump| These little beauties come in navy or ballerina pink. Act fast, these pumps are currently 40% off!
Sephora Gift Set| I adore all of the gift sets available at Sephora over the holidays, I wish I could try every last one. You really can’t go wrong with a set of hand cream during the dry winter months or fab lip colors for the girl who loves to experiment with makeup. I always enjoy trying new hair products and the masks in this set are great for an at-home spa night. Finally, my curling iron was stolen from my hotel room during a trip to Las Vegas in March, I’ve made do with a cheap one from Bartell Drugs but I would LOVE to upgrade to this styling wand.
I am having so much fun shopping for gifts this year and I am totallyexcited to do a little Black Friday shopping this weekend. Thanks for checking out my first holiday gift guide. I know there are a lot of options out there so I really appreciate everyone who let me be a small part of their holiday shopping experience. Be sure to let me know what is on your holiday wish list! Happy shopping <3
