The red cups are out. Next week is Black Friday. The holiday madness has officially commenced. I’ve noticed that this year there are a few items that are especially awesome. I probably will not buy these for myself right now -especially because you’re supposed to buy for others this time of year. I feel like the perfect recipe for a gift idea is buying someone something that they wouldn’t usually buy for themselves.
But I really would love to have them so best believe I’ll be picking some items up after Christmas. I hate to be this kind of person but I am a realist and know my faults. Here are my gift ideas for her (your wife, girlfriend, mom, bestie, whatever) or if you’re planning on buying your favorite blogger something *ahem* I’ll send you my shipping address.
HOW cute is this tee?! Knot it or layer it under a black blazer. I’ll take one. Size small please. Get it here. It’s on sale for $5.98!
Wine is a one size fits all gift. Winc has a fabulous selection of wines with free delivery and so many gift options. This adorable bottle of rose is only $13. Check out their website for more. I’d add a pair of cute wine glasses and make it into a gift basket/date night.
Glossier is one of those brands in skin care and beauty that just gets women. The minimalist pretty packaging will look nice in the bathroom and the products are legendary. She (I) has been eyeing this body wash & hydrating lotion for months. $35 for the set won’t kill your wallet and will definitely earn you brownie points. Scoop it up here.
One of my favorite beauty gurus Desi Perkins has her own line with Quay sunglasses and they’re as affordable as they are good looking. $65 is a perfect price point for higher end sunglasses. I’ve been eyeing the high keys for some time but they looked way to big for my face. A few weeks ago, Quay dropped the high key minis and I am all over it. Seeing how I managed to lose my favorite sunglasses, I am in need. Pick her (me) up a pair here.
Because instant cameras are awesome. And pink instant cameras are even better. $79.00 here.
You can’t go wrong with a personalized gift. It is thoughtful and means you didn’t get it last minute. A monogram necklace is timeless so it won’t end up at the bottom of the jewelry box with the Pandora bracelet from 2003. I’d want my monogram to be MMD for Mindy, Max & Dante since I don’t have a middle name *fun fact. Click here to shop.
If your lucky lady is a snuggler, then this is going to be her favorite gift (I think this would also make a great Valentine’s Day gift as well). I may never leave my bed again if I had a chunky knit blanket like this. I’ll take it in cream, grey and pink #pleaseandthankyou. Order yours (mine) here.
JLEW Bags are made in the USA with an INSANE amount of attention to detail. I personally own a few of this brand’s bags and can say that they are so well-made and durable. She will love the fact that the reversible tote is 2 bags in 1. It comes in a couple of color options but the burgundy/nude combo is my top choice. Get it here. Purchase it on 11/30 and get an additional 25% off!! JLEW is having a deal every single day from Black Friday until 12/20! Here’s how I styled the bag both ways:
Classic & Gucci. No brainer. $395 earns you husband of the year status. Snag this hotness here.
