Gift Guide 2014: For Her & For Him

gift guide, this holiday, gift ideas under 75, gifts under 75, affordable gifts, gifts for her, gifts for him, gifts for guys, gifts for men I can’t believe I’m already posting the final gift guide for this season! Today’s guide doesn’t have a theme- I just wanted to round up a few more gifts under $75 for women and men. Maybe I should have renamed this one the J. Crew/J. Crew Factory guide because a lot of these items come from there. If you’re looking for a one-stop shop, I’d recommended either store/site because they have lots of great gift ideas (and good sales too). I hope you enjoyed this year’s gift guides! I’ve bought about half of my gifts so far and I plan to do the rest of my shopping once I get settled at home in CA.

Tell me: How’s your holiday shopping going?

Gift Guide 2014: For the Homebody

gift guide, this holiday, gift ideas under 75, gifts under 75, affordable gifts, gift guide homebody, gifts for the homebody, gifts for stay at home When I’m putting these gift guides together, I’m often thinking of things I would buy or would love to receive as gifts. Today’s guide in particular is absolutely perfect for me. My friends know that I’m a total homebody and I’ll frequently choose a cozy night in by myself over a night out. When I get home, first things first, I get into my comfies, and then I’m usually glued to my laptop or my latest read for the rest of the night. When I’m at home, it’s all about coziness and comfort, which is why I’ve included lots of soft, snuggly picks in today’s round-up. I like to unwind by brewing a cup of tea (or pouring of glass of wine if I need something stronger), lighting a fragrant candle, and getting lost in a book or TV show. If you have any friends that are homebodies, I hope this guide will give you at least one idea!

01. Pointelle Button Sleep Tee 02. Tea Tins Gift 03. Aragon Pant 04. Flannel Sleep Short 05. Marled Boot Sock 06. Stemless Wine Glasses 07. Nordic Sleep Legging 08.

Gift Guide 2014: For the Home & Kitchen

gift guide, this holiday, gifts for the home, gifts for the kitchen, gifts for the foodie, gifts for the kitchen lover, gifts for the house Sometime over the last few years, getting things for my home or kitchen has become nearly as exciting as getting new clothes or books. It really takes time to turn a house (or apartment) into a home and it’s fun to add your own little personal touches. I like to switch up the decor in my room from time to time and I’m slowly building up my baking tools (next on my list- a donut pan). These are a few fun gift ideas that I think many people would be happy to receive for their home and/or kitchen. I mentioned that I had a bunch of ideas for gift guides, but I think I’m aiming to do about five in total, so there might be a few more combo guides like this one. As usual, everything in this guide is under $75!

01. Lace Gold Frame 02. Metal Basket 03. Jordan Carlyle Feathered Pillow 04. Trinket Tray 05. Initial Candle 06. Faceted Vessel- Live Bright 07. Geometry Espresso Cups 08. More Please! Metallic Salad Servers 09. But First Coffee Mug (need this) 10. Ceramic Cutting Board 11. Star Cookie Cutter Set 12. Donna Hay: The New Classics 13. Ho Ho Ha Coasters 14. Emily Henry Pie Dish

Gift Guide 2014: For the Beauty Obsessed

gift guide, this holiday, gifts under 75, gifts for the beauty lover, beauty gifts, beauty wish list A couple of weeks ago, I shared my beauty wish list and today I have several more beauty-related gift ideas. Many of these are also on my list (you know the nail polish addict in me is heart-eyed over that Formula X set) or items that I think would make good gifts for people in my life. I also love the idea of the Sephora Favorites sets that were released for the holidays because you get to sample a bunch of great brands at a fraction of the price.

Speaking of shopping, who’s gearing up for Black Friday? I don’t plan to go to any stores (it’s way too crazy out there for me), but I will be browsing the deals online and possibly sharing some of favorite deals on twitter. I’m hoping that I can order a few things and knock a couple of gifts of my Christmas shopping list.

To those who celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and good luck to all the Black Friday shoppers. I’ll see you guys back here next week!
