My Favorite Things: Holiday Edition

It’s that time of year again…  We’re getting down to the wire and Christmas is quickly approaching! Though it comes the same time every year, Christmas always seems to catch us by surprise. If you’re like me you’re probably suffering from “twofer!” You know, ‘two for me and one for them…’ And that’s probably why your Christmas shopping list is incomplete.

Well, let’s check out a few gift ideas to help complete your shopping list…

Just when you think you already have the coolest makeup brushes, go to Target! Sonia Kashuk will most likely top that!

2014 Sonia Kashuk 'All That Jazz' 10 piece brush set holiday

Every girl should at least have the basics. Go from day-to-night with one palette! (Also available in Naked and Naked 3).

Urban Decay Naked-2

Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. —  $54.00 Available at Sephora and Ulta


If you love rich, elegant, long-lasting fragrances for your home, Voluspa candles will be your new vice. There are several sizes to choose from. Just choose your budget and pick a scent!

Voluspa candles

Voluspa candles– $16.00 Available at Anthropologie  and Nordstrom


I’m a sucker for coffee mugs and these are so adorable! The gold monograms are for a limited time only. Depending on your name, your initial won’t last long!

***Double whammy!***
monogram mugs

Limited Edition Golden Monogram Mugs– $10.00 Available at Anthropolgie 


Two word: “Oprah Winfrey.” Go get it! I mean gift it!


“What I Know For Sure” –$24.99 Available at Barnes and Noble
Teavana Oprah Chai Tea — $14.95 Available at Starbucks


Save your coins in this cute bank!


Parfum Bottle Coin Bank– $19.95 Available at Z Gallery


I know this is a bit off the wall, but Christmas is a great time for bundles. Oral care is important and can get a little pricey. Anytime you find bundles (extra heads, toothpaste, whitening kits)- get it! You’ll most likely save a minimum of $30.00 which you can store in your piggy bank!


Phillips Sonicare Healthy White Electric Toothbrush– $99.99 Available at Target


Lastly, I like to call these perfume samplers “pick-a-scents.” They’ve been on my list for the last few years. It’s a great way to sample the fragrances on your skin without purchasing a full-size bottle. Wear them to see which one is most compatible with your body chemistry, take the scent certificate back to Sephora and redeem it for a full-size bottle!

Shopping for others can be challenging. Sometimes you have to stop and reel it in. If you can’t find the perfect gift, go simple or sentimental! I can’t speak for everyone, but I love getting things that I need, without having to spend a dime…

Happy Shopping!
