Hello Loves! Who else is excited about Thanksgiving, Black Friday & Christmas?! Since the Holidays are coming up & Black Friday is in just a few days I thought I would give you a gift guide! I know that I really like to buy gifts for people that I KNOW they wouldn’t buy themselves. So check out the list I have come up with! I have also added my favorite place to buy Christmas cards!
Spa Gift Card
A Facial, Massage or any other spa treatment would make an awesome gift. You can look on Groupon to find great deals (make sure you check reviews) or purchase a certificate from a local Spa. This would make a great gift because people don’t typically go to get massages or facials. It’s something we all want but we never do for ourselves! Facials and Massages usually cost 50$-200$ depending on the length and treatment you get. Make sure to consider the person’s skin type when purchasing a particular facial/treatment!
I know this may seem like a different suggestion for a gift but trust me on this. No matter who you are you cannot deny that you don’t love being comfortable. I know that every morning I get ready in a robe especially in the colder months. Growing up I always saw my parents in their robes all year round. Gifting someone a nice, luxurious, high quality robe would be awesome. It’s the gift somebody never knew they wanted. I recommend the Barefoot Dreams Robe, these robes are super soft & high quality.
Perfume or Cologne is one of the BEST gifts you can give someone. But, it can also be the hardest to pick out. Perfumes/Colognes are a great gift because they range from 50$-100$ and it is not something that people typically purchase for themselves. I find that people usually purchase one perfume that will last them a year or so and that they typically don’t have more than 2-3 at a time. When purchasing a perfume for someone else take note of the perfumes they already have. You can get a good idea of the scents they like or you can always purchase an iconic favorite such as Chanel Chance or Gucci Guilty. Sephora has perfume samplers where you get about 10 samples and you get to pick out your favorite for a full size! They make a sampler for men & women & it’s only 65$!
I am pretty sure everyone loves candles. My husband loves Fall Scents & Balsam. My Dad last week was asking about which candles he should buy & how he wanted them to be high quality candles LOL. There are the obvious contenders, Bath & Body Works & Yankee Candle, which are awesome. But I am talking about the extra special candles. The ones that act like a piece of decor and fill the entire house within seconds of lighting them. Anthroplogie has some amazing options. Their candles are beautiful to look at, they also smell great & the scent carries through the entire home!
My friend Bre recently wrote a blog post about adding more quailty pieces over quantity and picking out timeless pieces for your wardrobe. I couldn’t agree more with her. Purchasing someone a timeless bag, jacket or pair of shoes is a great gift that will get years of use. Purchasing something more simple such as a plain black purse, trench coat & classic pair of shoes will help your loved one create the perfect capsule wardrobe. This is perfect gift for men and women!
Weekend Getaway to Your Local City
A weekend getaway is such an unexpected gift to give someone. It is a way to create memories, have fun in the city, & it may not be as expensive as you think. You can look on Airbnb or Groupon to find cheap places to stay for a night. Search Yelp for some unique local restaurants to eat at for brunch and dinner. Looking for shops, local events, a museum, or even a broadway show can also fill up your time in the city & make the gift extra special.
Finally, the perfect Holiday Card!
Last but not least we have got to talk about cards! Although gifts are not purchased for everyone, holiday cards are a great way to give a little something to everyone. Basic Invite has 400 amazing options for holiday cards. I picked out the cutest holiday cards for newlyweds & they came out beautifully! The quality and sharpness of the print is truly amazing. The paper is also very durable & smooth. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card. Basic Invite has 180 different color options as well as metallic foil so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it! You can also choose between 40 different peel and seal envelope colors! I am in love with how my cards came out! Their holiday cards are also very well priced so you should definitely check them out for your 2017 Christmas cards!
