Gift Givin’Makin' a List, Checkin' It Twice
Can you believe it’s already November? If you’re anything like us, holiday planning and shopping began November 1st. We’re not dissing Thanksgiving, but for us, Christmas begins every year as soon as Halloween ends… and we’re sure the anticipation builds each and every day no matter holiday you call your own (tell us about your traditions in the comments below!).
This month, we’ll be sharing five different gift guides with you (and every day in December) to help you get ready for the holiday madness. Check back every Monday for new gift guides that will help you cross everyone off your shopping list. This week were looking at the best products– all $50 or less!
When we think of mom, we think of home– we think of comfort. Show your love with the homiest gifts around: a stripe throw blanket, a geo terrarium, a pair of striped travel slippers, a mercury glass jar candle and a mom charm bangle bracelet.
Dads– they’re our shoulders to lean on when the going gets tough. They deserve the best for always being there, and these gifts speak for themselves: a sleek, leather credit card holder, an apron to embrace the kitchen with, a woody iPhone case, a stripe tie bar for all businessmen out there and a pair of ‘good grief’ glasses (the perfect combination of clever and practical).
For Your Best Friend (Or for a #TreatYoSelf Moment)
Our friends tend to be a reflection of ourselves and our personalities. That’s why, when shopping for our best friends, we tend to buy things we’d love, too. Treat your best friend (or yourself) this season to a print shift dress with pockets (is there anything better than pockets?), a NARS lip pencil coffret, a pair of mesh sneakers, an Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty book (for endless inspiration) and an angles cuff.
For Your Boyfriend or Husband
Shopping for your significant other can be one of the most mind-wracking parts of the holidays. These gifts have you covered: an Arctic Monkeys record to start (or continue) their record collection, a comfy pair of holiday slippers, a book on graffiti-genius Banksy, a bright and festive wallet and a smartphone fisheye lens.
For Your Girlfriend or Wife
When we said shopping for your s.o. is difficult, we weren’t kidding. Maybe your girlfriend will love one of these incredible gifts (they’re all in our list!): an open love charm bangle bracelet, a Marc Jacobs fragrance trio, a warm beanie, an oversized scarf and the merriest pair of mittens.
For Your Daughter
Moms, you’re hip– you’re cool. You don’t have to prove this to your kids, but with these stylish gifts, there won’t be any doubt in your daughter’s mind: a soft drape coat, a pair of black and classic sunnies, a marcail bobby set, a pair of double pearl studs and a medallion jewelry stand.
For the Foodies
Make the foodies’ wishes come true and make their meals worthy of the #FoodPorn hashtag with these fun gadgets: a slate cheese board to give holiday parties a rustic feel, a sleek expresso maker, a zoku ice cream maker to make their own homemade ice cream in ten minutes, a handy (and stylish) wine bottle tote (how else will they carry those bottles to parties?) and a bundt cake pan for all that holiday baking.
