Jessica’s Holiday Gift Guide
Kendra Scott Alex Earrings in Navy Cat’s Eye ($55) — GIVEAWAY ITEM
I am a HUGE Kendra Scott fan. I love that with KS you get a lot of bang for your buck. Not only do these earrings look fantastic, they’re also affordable. Which leaves you with plenty of cash to buy more! I love the shape and color of these earrings so much, that I may have to get myself a lil’ Christmas present — if you know what I mean!
New Balance 574 Sneakers ($79.95)
A smart mama knows she can never have too many pairs of cute running shoes. From the carpool line to the gym to casual Date Night, and everything in between, nothing says sassy, comfortable-chic like a cool pair of sneaks. And I am loving these.
With multiple toddlers (all under the age of four), I quickly learned that continuing to collect designer handbags was an exercise in futility — at least for now. Unfortunately, my favorite Chanel clutch didn’t hold many diapers or wipes, or really anything useful for play dates at the park. So a pretty yet durable baby bag makes a more sensible investment. But, I would use this Tory beauty for babies and beyond. Just saying.
Little Giraffe has always been my go-to for sweet, plush lovelies for my babes. And now, they make adult products for the home! Were they spying on me in my sleep? Because this is a real-life mama dream come true. Curl up under one of these babies at nap time, and you’ll be saying, midnight feeding who? This is the perfect gift for a mom who needs a little pampering and a little something special.
How adorable are these dessert plates? I am no Martha Stewart, but I love collecting beautiful, unique dishes for my kitchen. Even if I’m only using them to serve Pop Tarts. And these most definitely fit the bill.
I’ve always had a fascination with the French. And comfort food? It’s basically a win-win. “Author Hillary Davis, journalist and creator of the popular food blog, Marche Dimanche, has made collecting recipes her mission — particularly those that have spanned generations. In her charming cookbook, she pays homage to these traditional recipes with delightful dishes you’re sure to love.” This has stocking stuffer written all over it.
Alaskan Lake Framed Print ($449.25)
Perfect for the art lover, and the woman looking to finish off her dining room with a couple of reproduced oil paintings. On sale nonetheless. Raises hand sheepishly.
Had to include one more stocking stuffer idea. How fun are these nails? I would totally rock these festive lovelies. But then again, I love plaid for the holidays.
Quin’s Holiday Gift Guide
For Christmas, I am interested in items that are practical for my everyday life. Well, and pretty of course! So here are my favorite picks for some holiday surprises. They range in price from based on how much someone might want to spoil me this Christmas. (Wink. Wink. Hubby. 😉 )
I hardly carry a purse nowadays because I never want more with me than necessary when chasing three little boys! So I love using wristlets instead of purses, but I need one that is made to hold my phone too. And this Kate Spade one does! So classy and practical. Love!
I love my Fitbit, but I hate how it looks! This is a great option for hiding a Fitbit by making it a stylish accessory. But FYI…it only works with a FitBit Flex with tracker.
I love the idea of having something not someone (me) clean my makeup brushes! This is so fun and something I would never buy myself.
Listen, when everything else is expanding when you’re pregnant, you still have your feet that can be stylishly adorned. That is why I love these fringed booties by Joie. Definitely a splurge that would only happen at the holidays!
I love, love cute maternity jeans. And since I live in Houston where the winters are mild, these can be used throughout the season. They are a must-have for my maternity look! And they’re on sale!!
Jack & Monroe, Metallic Black Leggings ($15) — GIVEAWAY ITEM
And what pregnant girl does not include a pair of leggings on her Christmas must-have list?! Leggings are the best because they are stylish and grow with you throughout the pregnancy! These metallic leggings from Jack and Monroe are my very favorite this season because they allow you to create an edgy look while still sporting a bump! And they are only $15!!
I love any jewelry that reminds me of my babies and I love that these are thin enough, I could have four rings for my upcoming fourth child on my finger and still look exquisite! Plus gold is just so fun.
Is there any more I need to say about this? I crave sleep like never before since becoming a mom AND being pregnant. I could wear this everyday!
I love, love, love beautiful brows! So this kit is fun and practical!
Lanie’s Holiday Gift Guide
Ballet Barre ($114.95)
This barre is perfect for when I have to work-out at home during kiddo’s nap-time. It’s great since you can move it around your home whenever you’re ready for a workout.
Cotton Wreath ($69)
Here is a quirky and rustic take on the traditional wreath that can be displayed throughout the year. So cute!
Pajama Set ($88)
The holidays were invented for lounging in your pj’s with cups of hot cocoa, weren’t they? Loving a monogrammed shorts-set for this season!
This fits in my purse and let’s me print adorable photos instantly or share online with friends and family! AWESOME!
My pinterest may be “bursting” with recipes, but I’m truly a sucker for a beautiful cookbook. Besides introducing scrumptious new recipes, Ella also talks about how she’s living and loving her vegan lifestyle. An inspiration for anyone looking to make that jump.
Jasper Jade Necklace ($135) — GIVEAWAY ITEM
The Hightower Collection, launched officially this year, is a treasure trove of gorgeous pieces. I can’t wait to get my hands on this Jasper necklace but let’s be honest, I have more than just that stunner on this year’s wish list…
Sarah’s Holiday Gift Guide
This sleek gray Le Creuset set is gorgeous and would look great in any kitchen. Prepare your meals in style with this beauty this holiday season and for seasons to come!
Who doesn’t love anything made of cashmere? I know I sure do. This cashmere poncho is perfect since it can be dressed up or down with casual attire. It’s a quick and easy way to add a little glamour to your look.
These grey suede heels are calling my name! Perfect to wear on a date night with the hubs or anytime this winter season.
I love this stone bucket bag from Gigi New York. It changes up your purse game from your every day tote or handbag that you normally wear. And it’s great how you can wear it over the shoulder or as a backpack when you need both of your hands chasing after the littles.
Nest Candle in Hearth ($38) — GIVEAWAY ITEM
Candles make every house feel more like home and these Nest Frangrances candles are the best. My husband also loves the scent ‘Hearth’ so you can be sure that the whole family will love it. It’s guaranteed to make your home feel more like Christmas.
PBTeen Maison Bookcase ($599)
Add a little starlet style to your study space with this Maison bookcase that takes its cue from Hollywood Regency design. The roomy shelves accommodate everything from literary greats and textbooks to framed photos and keepsakes. Stunning!
This beautiful book written by Kimberly Whitman shows that monogramming is still very much in vogue. From linens, lamps and chairs to silver, china, desk accessories and more, you’ll see exquisite examples of how to use monograms as your “personal logo” in stylish, elegant ways in any part of your home.
Nina’s Holiday Gift Guide
Louis Vuitton Neverfull bag ($1,260)
If you’re going to be toting around your little one’s things (extra clothes, diapers, wipes, toys, even a dirty diaper bag) on top of all of your things, you might as well be carrying a cute bag, right?! 😉 Well, this Neverfull Louis Vuitton bag is the perfect thing. It has enough room to fit everything you need and feel fabulous because LV goes with every outfit.
Life in Play – ToteSavvy ($80) — GIVEAWAY ITEM
Now that you have a large bag for all your baby’s and your things, you need an organizer to keep everything neat and together. Digging in your bag trying to find your baby’s pacifier as he is wailing in the restaurant is the last thing that you want. This diaper bag organizer from Life in Play is the best! You will LOVE it!
Lush Bath Bombs ($5 – $9)
Taking some time for YOU is so important. A soak in the tub is always a nice retreat, but with these bath bombs, you will feel like it is the ultimate luxury. I seriously will never go back to just regular baths. These are the perfect stocking stuffers for every mama!
Anthropology Leopard loafers ($130)
If you ask me, leopard is a neutral. It adds a little pizzazz to your wardrobe and goes with any outfit. I’m obsessed with these loafers from Anthropologie. So cute and sassy!
Baby Chick water bottle ($20)
Hydration is everything! I’m guilty of not drinking enough water throughout the day, but this water bottle from our shop is the best and reminds me to keep hydrated. It can be used as an infuser water bottle to create your own recipes or as a regular bottle for whatever you crave. You will love it!
For an extra pop of color for your bar cart or coffee table, these coasters are spot on! It’s no secret that my favorite color is pink so I’m drooling over these gorgeous pink agate and gold gilded coasters. Gorg!
Lulu & Georgia Texas pillow ($168)
Lulu & Georgia have the cutest state pillows. You need to check out your state’s pillow on their site. If you’re from Texas, their ‘Texas’ pillow is the best!
Kate Spade Gold Pen Set ($25)
I pretty much adore everything that Kate Spade makes. All of her office products are perfection (and in my office) and these gold pens are no exception. Another great stocking stuffer that you will use daily!
I’ve tried several lip glosses and this Bobbi Brown high shimmer lip gloss is by far my favorite. When you’re in a rush and want to put on ‘your face’, this and some maskcara does the trick. The assortment of colors allows you to pick the right shade for you and it looks great on everyone.
