How is it December already and I am all done with both my Christmas shopping AND wrapping!? This is definitely a first although I still don’t have my Christmas tree up. That hopefully will happen this weekend. Along my shopping adventures I have found some great buys and must haves! Here they are, my top 20 Christmas idea list:
1.) Very cute and inexpensive T-Shirt from The Home T. For only $28 and with proceeds going towards MS what’s not to love? I purchased one of these (Illinois) last year and got a ton of compliments, now I need a California shirt. #homeawayfromhome
2.) Tory Burch Perfume. This is the first fragrance for Tory and it’s a great scent, very light, airy, and clean. $82
3.) Knuckle rings are hot right now, and I am in love with this one buy Urban Outfitters for only $10.
4.) Bib necklaces are still on trend and I have had my eye on this one ever since I saw it in the store…. and bonus, it’s now on sale at Intermix for $189
5.) Here is a style stealer bib Necklace from Nordstrom, I love how they incorporated the rope. $38
6.) Everyone needs a nice functional duffle bag and this one by Longchamp is functional and lightweight. One of my favorites for $320.00
7.) My current must have since the weather has turned bitter cold are these Restoration Hardware Faux Fur Slippers and for only $16 you can give them as a gift and get a pair for yourself. *they run a tad big*
8.) Hands down best product for the softest, most kissable lips. Philosophy $20
9.) I have a rule for Christmas and birthday gifts, they should NOT plug in. Meaning guys, save vacuums, and blenders for a “just because” gift not for a personal meaningful gift. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE gifts that plug in and actually wouldn’t mind the new gold IPhone but they should be given for something other than Christmas. Including the IPhone, one of my few exceptions are these T3 Voluminous Hot Rollers for $99. My hairstylist used these on me and my hair looked better than it ever had…considering I still use my mother’s hot rollers from 1973, it is probably time for an upgrade.
10.) These Beauty Blender sponges from Sephora are a PERFECT stocking stuffer. These made such a huge difference in the way my makeup went on, flawless and airbrushed. $19.95
11.) These Nike Free 5.0 with Swarovski rhinestones are currently sold out, luckily I got my order in just in time! I emailed the owner and will update my Facebook page when they come back in. How ADORBS for $160!
12.) Starting tomorrow on Gilt.com they are offering a rare GOLD Starbucks card. If you have a Starbucks obsessed person you need to buy for…. this is a limited edition gift (only 1000 available) and worth checking out.
13.) This Elliot Luca cross body bag is perfect for carrying during holiday shopping. Lightweight and easy to find things in. $140
14.) Cross body Splurge and on my list this year. Louis Vuitton Palermo PM.
15.) These Aerie sweatpants are thee most comfortable lounge pants. $25
16.) This Victoria’s Secret lightweight robe is perfect for getting ready. There is nothing worse than doing hair and makeup and being in a big, hot, bulky robe. $45
17.) If you are looking for something leather and personalized you have to check out Mark and Graham. There are so many things I absolutely love on their site I couldn’t pick just one.
18.) I recently found this Pinterest dress I have been obsessed with for only $14. WHAT!?
19.) I am loving all the Fair Aisle print this year. Like this sweater from JCrew. $98
20.) Last but not least, but certainly the least expensive yet most rewarding is giving back this holiday season. Donate to your favorite charity, bag gently used clothing and give it to a local women’s charity, sit with a neighbor that might be in need of a friend, be kind & and love. Merry Christmas and happy shopping!
