Holiday Gift Guide

You survived Black Friday, endured Cyber Monday, and yet you are still hunting for the perfect gift for that special person. Have no fear, my friends. I've got you covered. I have scoured the internet to find you some of the best products out there that are sure to make any recipient holly & jolly, all for a reasonable price (under $60). You're welcome.
Gifts for Her

1. Clean On Me Body Wash: This is my absolute favorite body wash. It smells INCREDIBLE and it is smooth smooth smooth.
2. Textured Bangle Set: These bracelets from J. Crew make the perfect (affordable) accessory for any outfit.
3. Vintage Polka Dot Tee: Who doesn't love a comfy polka dot tee?
4. Golden Monogrammed Mug: Adorable. Metallic. $10. It's a win for all.
5. Fair Isle Cardi: And so continues my obsession with fair isle sweaters.
6. Perfume Rollerball: These are perfect for the perfume-lover and have the added advantage of not being as expensive as a full-size perfume bottle. They come in a variety of scents and are ideal for travel.
7. Volcano Candle: Best. Candle. Ever. You'll never be the same after smelling it.
8. Coach Glitter Wristlet: Because every girl needs some glitter in her life.
9. Statement Necklace: I love J. Crew necklaces as much as the next girl, but they can get pricey. Etsy has some great alternatives at a fraction of the cost.
10. Leather Card Holder: The perfect pop of color for anyone's purse.
Gifts for Him

1. Leather Laptop Case: Who says guys can't have attractive laptop cases too?
2. Striped Happy Socks: A touch of whimsy for any guy's outfit. They come in lots of styles and colors (and are available for women too).
3. Art of Shaving Kit: Guaranteed to help the man in your life achieve a closer shave with less razor burn. Who doesn't want that?
4. Upcycled Wallet: Unique and eco-friendly. Each is handmade from newspapers and magazines in Delhi.
5. Moleskin Weekly Planner: Friends, this is the best planner. With plenty of room to write your schedule for each day of the week and a whole page for notes, it's perfect for the busy worker, student, mom, dad, anyone. It's also the one I prefer to use.
6. Vintage Airplane Cuff Links: Because you know he's always secretly longed to be in "Top Gun".
7. Mango Cutter: We all know how delicious mangoes are, but they are a pain to cut. This handy tool will save him oodles of time in the kitchen. (Can you tell I make Husband cut the mangoes in our house?)
8. Fossil Aviator Sunglasses: Affordable and oh-so-sharp-looking. These are sure to make your man feel infinitely more cool.
9. Baseball Hat: Manly, vintage, & affordable. Perfect for the sports fanatic.
10. Banana Republic Cotton Tee: The most comfortable tee your man will ever wear. I challenge you to resist snuggling with him when he's wearing this. (Can you tell Husband owns several upon my request?)

And who says these gifts have to be for someone else? Chances are, you deserve a Christmas present from you to you this year :) I've bought myself several.

Should Be: Doing homework and/or baking cookies.
Watching: Boy Meets World
Excited To: Eat dinner with Husband
Days Until Christmas: 23


  1. I love that body wash too. I went to Sephora the other day to get the big bottle and they don't carry it anymore!!! But they have the new Sugar Crush scent and it smells super yummy. BTW...if you like that Clean on Me scent, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle perfume smells almost exactly like it.

  2. Isn't it the best? That's so sad though they don't carry the big bottle! I wonder if that's true for every store, if so I will definitely have to stock up. And I didn't know that about the Mademoiselle perfume! I am definitely going to try that next time I'm there. Thanks for the tips!
