Today’s gift guide just might be my favorite and was by far the most requested – Dear Santa! The perfect list of swoon-worthy goodies for your holiday wish-list, or the perfect excuse for a pre-holiday treat yo self (or someone else of course, because ’tis the season).
The older I get (ahem, hello 30), the more I look for quality of gift rather than quantity of gift. Some of my picks are must-haves that I own, LOVE, and totally think you need in your life. Others are things on my personal wish-list that I think make the ideal holiday ask.
This guide is perfect to forward along to a hubs, boyfriend, or family member asking what you want for Christmas this year!
As usual with my gift guides, every image is ‘clickable’ and shop-able. Just scroll over, click, and it will take you directly to the goods! I’ve also included a little breakdown of why I love each product so much.
1 // This scarf is such a classic that legit never goes out of style! I asked for it for Christmas a few years ago and am so glad I did. It’s definitely an investment piece, but it’s one of those staple items that you’ll love for years!
2 // I love a great pair of pajamas. This isn’t something I started appreciating or investing in until the past year or two, but a good pair of pj’s really do make all the difference for a great night’s sleep. These are amazing quality and beautiful! You can also get them monogramed, which I think is a fun touch!
3 // I’d been on the hunt for the perfect gold watch with a black face for a few years. Nothing really impressed me until I found this beauty during the Nordstrom sale! I’ve already gotten so much wear out of it. Bonus, I just looked and it’s on sale!
4 // The worlds coziest robe! This one is actually on my personal wish-list for the year! I’ve been eyeing it for some time now. The material is buttery soft, luxe, and, of course, it’s the cutest neutral leopard. The perfect Christmas treat!
5 // If you’re a cold weather girl, this coat is gorgeous! It’s warm, chic, and comes in multiple colors. This is another one of those pieces you’ll have and love for years!
6 // For years, I’ve been borrowing Alex’s headphones and secretly wanting my own pair. Well I guess my coveting wasn’t such a secret after all – Alex surprised me with this pair at the hospital. It was so nice to have them to watch movies, listen to music, and just zone out while we waited for sweet Kins. The quality is amazing, not to mention they are beautiful! If you’re in the market for a great pair of headphones, I highly recommend these. They also come in black and would make the perfect gift for the man in your life. These are also on sale for 10% today!
7 // I can’t say enough good things about this blanket! If you love pom poms and being cozy, this ones for you.
8 // I love the idea of asking for a milk frothier. If you’re a coffee loving gal (or chai like me), having things like a frother that make your morning sip more fun are always a good idea!
9 // The best slippers at a great price! These are also a fun little ‘treat your self’ gift that you’ll wear all season long! I have the tan color, but they come in a darker brown and red as well.
10 // Another thing that’s on my personal wish-list is a new wallet and how cute is this one?! Leopard everything please!
11 // The most amazing smelling candle! It’s also really pretty and once you burn it down, it doubles as a cute way to hold matches, pencils, makeup brushes etc. The Vanille is my favorite smell, but it comes in a bunch of different scents!
12 // If you’re a detail oriented girl that likes paper planners, this is the perfect ask! It’s the best, and allows so much room to write, make lists, etc. Not to mention it’s super cute!
13 // This has quickly become my favorite bronzer brush ever! It’s definitely a splurge at $115, but that’s what makes it the perfect gift!
14 // If you’re a fan of dainty, gold, jewelry this necklace is perfect for everyday wear! It would also be a super cute gift for mom or your best girlfriend.
15 // I’ve been asked a lot lately what my current favorite perfume is and it’s the new Ralph Lauren scent, Women. Scents are so hard to explain via text, but this smells AH-MAZING. If you’re looking for a new perfume, I love this one!
16 // My newest beauty find and current obsession is this curling iron! I really can’t say enough good things about it. It’s the absolute best one I’ve ever used. It gives me smooth, voluminous curls that last for days and it also doesn’t go above a certain temp, so it helps limit damage to your hair!
