I spent the weekend snuggled up in bed watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade + scouring the web for the best Black Friday + Cyber Monday sales I can shop now (since I am home alone in LA…why not shop, right? :p) From great deals on tech at Target to fine jewelry at Macy’s to handbags at Saks to clothing at Old Navy + Nordstrom and more…there are TONS of Black Friday + Cyber Monday sales shoppable NOW! Shop them + some of my favorite buys below!
My annual Holiday Gift Guide is HERE except this year I went all out! From gifts to get your boo, gifts for your traveling bestie, gifts for your mom or sis + more…I got ya covered on the best gifts to give this holiday season and guess what?! They won’t break the bank! I worked hard to pick options under $300, from retailers like Nordstrom, Target + more because nothing is more important when gifting than shopping at places with great prices + a great return policy just in case you or the recipient wants to return it :p
Shop my favorite picks below + if you are searching for more gift guides comment on this post and I will put some more together!!
P.S. you can shop by clicking on the individual products in the graphics, use the shoppable feed below or click the direct links to the products under the graphics!
Whether you are looking for the perfect gift for your bestie, your sister, relative or more, these options are perfect! If you are a always rocking sunnies like me, these Diff Eyewear pink Cruz sunglasses are a great gift idea (maybe even to gift yourself hehe :p). They are affordable (under $100) + look just like RayBans – plus they are great quality!!
I also love gifting cozy options (especially if you are celebrating the holidays in a cold place). I’ll be in London + definitely will want to cozy up with some nice UGG slippers + blanket scarf!
Gifting your friends? I think this ban.do tumblr or Kendra Scott necklace both make perfect easy gift options. Who doesn’t love a cute tumblr to bring to the gym, work or just running errands? There are various quote options – all sassy of course 😉 Kendra Scott makes the perfect pieces for gals that like a little sparkle or to make a big statement. This necklace is under $55 + is great for a friend, relative, mother in law + beyond!
Finding the perfect gift for your brother, dad, boyfriend or guy friend can be tough. I tend to gravitate towards things I like haha but this year, I was on the hunt for this gift guide to find gifts that every guy will enjoy! Whether he’s a techie, a traveler, a homebody or just likes to keep things simple, these gift options are sure to be a hit.
One gift I know most guys will love is a little tech from Google. I actually received the Google Chromecast as a gift a year or so ago and when my boyfriend saw how easy it was to stream your favorite shows, movies + Youtube videos straight from your phone or tablet to your TV he bought one for himself! It is under $100 + makes life SO SO convenient!
Another gift I am loving this season is this Herschel Supply Co. duffle bag. This is great for the guy who travels a lot, needs a new gym bag or simply needs a convenient + great quality bag to have handy. Pair this bag with the Daniel Wellington Dapper York Watch + the guy in your life is ready to take on anything! New year, dapper you!
Ok, so you have a few people to gift + just aren’t sure what to get them…what are some safe options to gift? All the above!
A NEST Holiday Classic Candle is the perfect gift for a friend, relative, client + more. With it’s amazing scent + long lasting wick, it is a great gift to give yourself too to make your home embrace the holiday spirit!
Ah the tech lover! This is one of my favorite gift guides because I find tech + gadgets so fun to gift. Whether you are gifting a fitness lover who wants to get ‘fit’ for the new year with a Fitbit or a photography buff that would love to easy print photos they snap no matter where they are with the HP Sprocket Photo Printer…these gifts are sure to impress + be super handy!
Are you gifting to a wanderlust traveler? Well whether you are gifting to someone who frequently takes weekend trips, business travel or international voyages, these travel themed gifts will be the perfect gifts to give!
Time flies by so fast when it comes to the fall + the holiday season. Crazy to think Thanksgiving is just weeks away, followed by Black Friday shopping + prepping for holiday parties and gatherings! One of the most stressful parts of the holiday season is planning holiday parties. Whether it is an office party, a family gathering or a larger event, there is so much to do + so little time. Luckily, I am teaming up with BasicInvite.com today to share how easy it is the create custom holiday party invitations + photo cards with just a few simple clicks!
When it comes to throwing a great party, the invitation is pretty much the first impression of what is to come…the pressure is on, and what better way to do that than creating a custom theme or design that suits your style while having over 180 different colors to choose from along with various envelope designs + foil accents to add a little glitz + glam!
What I love about Basic Invite is that the site is easy to navigate + there is just so much room for creativity. With over 250 Christmas card and holiday card designs, you are bound to find something personal to you that will stand out amongst the typical store bought cards shared throughout the season.
Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print + feel (paper quality is key) before they have to place a final order. Now this is something I think is genius, nothing is worse than ordering something online (especially a bulk order of custom invitations or cards) + them not coming out as expected. By being able to order a sample, it makes the process seamless + guarantees satisfaction so every order is a happy order…one less thing to worry about this holiday season 😉
While I will be in London this holiday season, I am tempted to order holiday cards just because they are so pretty! From the chic fonts, to the creative details, Basic Invite has everything you need for spreading joy this season.
As if the amazing cards aren’t enough, Basic Invite also has an address capturing service which allows customers to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social platform to request their friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in the customer’s account + can then be selected during the design process so each individual card + envelope is customized. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no extra cost on all Christmas card orders! Woohoo! (The less I have to handwrite the better hehe…I have the sloppiest handwriting ever :p)
Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend – I sure did (lots of lounging and much needed rest after a busy week and I have a full week ahead…including a charity gala, dinner with one of my favorite PR gals + a trip to the…you guessed it ‘Museum Of Ice Cream‘)! Safe to say there’s lots happening…one thing coming up I am taking time to prep for is Mother’s Day! Mother’s Day is just TWO weeks away – Sunday May 14th.
Whether you are planning on treating your mom to a lovely brunch, dinner or getaway, a card + a little gift is something that is always guaranteed to put a smile on any moms face! My mom has always been a fan of perfume and lotion sets (probably since everything else she likes is wayyy out of my budget haha) but my grandma loves candles and jewelry…So I rounded up some of my favorite gifts I have seen currently available at Nordstrom, Saks Off Fifth, Bloomingdales, Lord & Taylor + more!
It is hard to find the perfect gift for someone that has given you life + so much more, but these little gifts may just do the trick 😉
