- FOR THE BEAUTY OBSESSED: The holidays are the best time of year to pick up products from your favorite beauty lines – brands usually do limited edition sets and unique palettes for gift purposes. A few favorites: Napoleon Perdis Greatest Hits Brush Set, this NARS cheek palette, and this Sephora VIP shadow set (ideal for creating the perfect smokey eye)! I’d also love to get my hands on this colorful lip gloss set. Some other products I highly recommend as gifts include Laura Mercier’s body souffle (the pistachio scent is incredible!), the best holiday red nail polish by Bobbi Brown, and this eau de parfum from Valentino – the scent is fresh and floral, and the bottle is even prettier!
- FOR GIRLS WHO LOVE SPARKLE: I always recommend Oscar de la Renta tassel earrings to anyone who will listen – they lend a glamorous feel to any outfit, even if you’re in a button-down and boyfriend jeans! This pair of sparklers by Dannijo is another statement earring option to love. On the less expensive side, J.Crew has a bunch of lovely pieces like this gold collar, these metal medallion earrings and this cameo ring. Don’t forget about Tory Burch watches!
- FOR THE WORLD TRAVELER: For the international traveler, this bright orange (and personalized) passport cover is an essential – it’s easy to find even in the deepest, darkest of your bags! This canvas + leather weekender is ideal for shorter trips or to use as a carry-on. Loving this printed hanging cosmetic case from Tory Burch too! Make your luggage pop (and stand out on the carousel) with this Anya Hindmarch tassel – I have one in blue! If you have a friend going to Paris soon, get her this little book.
- FOR THE HOSTESS: First of all… this tray. I need it. With malachite on my mind lately, I’m head over heels for this candle. Chic and aromatic. If your girl’s into gold, you must check out this chevron decanter, these glittering coasters and this set of leopard appetizer plates! Since rose gold is all the rage right now, this 4-piece hostess set from Kate Spade is a no brainer. For the book lover, be sure to check out Flourless (75+ gluten free desserts!), The Forest Feast (yummy & easy vegetarian recipes), the Neiman Marcus Cooks recipe book, and Camille Styles Entertaining. Oh, and I’ll take these crystalline paperweights too.
Ask any one of my friends and they’ll tell you I’m really bad about getting gifts to people on time. This can be said for wedding gifts, birthday gifts, baby gifts, and pretty much any national or religious holiday. I certainly want to get gifts to people on time, but things get so crazy around here and I just end up forgetting! Anyone else have issues with that? For the sake of getting my mom a gift right on schedule, I decided to pull together some Mother’s Day gift ideas a little early to get my butt in gear. Since she travels to much these days, this monogrammed garment bag and matching slipcover would be an ideal gift that she’d get a lot of use out of. I also know how much she loves and wears her current black pair of Rockstuds, so this pretty nude pair would be a perfect addition to her spring and summer wardrobe. What are you thinking of getting your mom this year? Hope some of these gift ideas help you decide!
