One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is gift shopping. I could spend forever trying to find the RIGHT gift for someone. I’m one of those people who can’t give a gift unless it has some meaning to it. It could be anything from sentimental value, to an inside joke, to a simple monogram. I love to make gifts personal and special for the other person.
So I always try to find a really good selection of personalized options because other people have to be this way too, right? Luckily I’m finding tons and tons of personalized stuff out there that’s all REALLY good. One of my absolute favorite pieces is this Maya Brenner necklace. I have been obsessed with getting one of her initial necklaces for ages and I think it may be a great birthday gift to myself. This would be perfect for a mom with the kid’s initials. I think the diamond version makes it a little something extra special for the holidays, but there’s also this version without the diamond which is what I’ve got my eye on.
You know my love for Cuyana so when I found this leather laptop case (NO. 3) I knew it was meant to be mine. I have this oversized tote as well which is amazing for everything you could imagine. Another great gift option are these travel cosmetic bags, they’re the perfect size! You can personalize any of their leather goods. They also ship super fast and have amazing customer service so I can’t recommend Cuyana enough.
An easy gift to get literally anyone you know is a scarf. The thing that makes it stand out is a monogram. I am obsessed with this pink scarf which will be perfect for January/February when holiday colors aren’t in season anymore. It also comes in 5 other color options including this red and white which is perfect for the holidays.
Another cozy idea that’s a bit of a splurge is this cashmere robe. There is nothing I love more than a really good robe and a glass of wine if we’re being honest. This is sort of the epitome of #SelfCareSunday and any busy woman deserves to relax in some cashmere.
Speaking of self-care, the Slip pillow case is a great stocking stuffer for any woman. Silk pillowcases are amazing for your skin and hair, especially if you wan’t to keep your hair style in tact for the next day. It also helps prevent wrinkles but don’t mention that when you give it to her, say the hair thing. Women are always looking for ways to not wash their hair two days in a row.
For the fashion lover in your life, this Gucci belt is going to be the to-die-for gift. I’m obsessed with my solid Gucci belt, but wanted this one so badly and it wasn’t in stock. Now it’s back and you need to grab it up quick because it will sell out quickly. Less of a splurge item is this Gucci card holder. These little card holders are such a game changer for small purses and make life a little more luxe.
Perfume always is an easy pick for someone you know well enough to buy a nice gift for, but not well enough to know what they actually want or need. Everyone always needs good bottles of perfume. For something floral, the Chloe perfume is my go-to. It smells incredible and the bottle is perfect for dresser decor. My go-to perfume is Tom Ford Noir. This may be surprising, but I always pick masculine scents when going for perfume. I love that Tom Ford makes unisex perfume/cologne and this is always my pick. It’s the perfect date night perfume too.
