Gift Guide – A few of my favorite things….

Hello, hello my blogger friends! I’m sharing my last gift guide with you today…I’ve chosen a few of my favorite things and each item on this list is under $175.00. Happy Shopping!

Are you excited for the holidays? We’re getting a little snow storm here today in Boston. It is beginning to look like it’s going to be a white Christmas!! (and an extra chilly winter)

1. I LOVE J. Crew necklaces. Nuff said!
2. How precious is this little girl crown? I came across this Etsy site today. Darling indeed…..
3. I live in scarves all winter! I wear them with all my sweaters…(pink is one of my favorite colors)
4. I need these!!
5. What pretty pink coasters! The perfect gift for the stylish someone on your list.
6. La Mer – I’ve always wanted to buy this face cream, even if I splurge on the little jar. I absolutely believe a great skin care regimen keeps you looking younger!!
7. I own this tote and love it!! I use it as my work bag. It perfectly fits my lap top and all the other trinkets designers carry around on a daily basis.
8. These Bass chukkas were stylish when I was growing up in the 80’s and 90’s. I think my boyfriend needs a pair! Every closet needs a few classics!

Gift Guide – for little ones

I thoroughly enjoy shopping for the little ones in my life! I find I discover more unique items on-line or in boutiques then at the mall. Here is a selection of my favorite finds this year!

1. Every child needs a set of blocks. I love watching their little creative minds in action. I prefer wooden toys over plastic ones for a slew of reasons….
2. How sweet are these booties?
3. I like to keep a few hats on hand for each of my children. I’m liking this simple pink one from Crewcuts. It looks as if it will actually stay on!
4. Books! I never tire of “new” children’s books. When my life feels chaotic I try to remind myself that someday my young children won’t want to snuggle up with me and read a story.
5. My daughter loves her “stuffies”, as she calls them. I can’t resist buying her a new one each year.
6. I like to give my children (my mom started the tradition) a new pair of pj’s on Christmas Eve. I always splurge on better quality ones….
7. I love vests (I’ve posted about this in the past) – therefore my children also own them! 😉
8. What young child doesn’t love to push “stuff” around in “things” with wheels. This cart may be under the tree for my daughter this year. This is plastic but it would work well outdoors and for the beach.
9. One word: adorable!!
10. As a designer I have a weakness for wall art. Visit this Etsy shop for an array of colorful prints.

3. You can’t go wrong giving a bit of bling bling. Bauble bar is having a sale today!
4. I adore this necklace from J.Crew.
5. Classic totes are a wonderful gift. They are a staple in my world.
6. I think I need to add this cashmere scarf to my wish list.
7. Gloves via one of my favorite shops.
8. This glamorous Kelly Wearstler designed bottle opener could become an heirloom treasure.
9. Diptyque candles burn forever and aren’t too strong scented.

Gift Guide – Wish List

Dear Santa, Here are the items on my wish list!! I know some thoughts are a stretch (the Cartier watch for example) but a girl game dream, right?
Most of the shops that I’ve linked to are having amazing sales today! 
1. Ahh, J. Crew , you never disappoint. J.Crew is having a 30% off entire site today.
2. I live in classic jackets with jeans and fitted pants during the chilly season.
3. I really want the Tory Burch blanket but for now it’s sold out. I dream of owning a Hermes throw for my new living room.
4. I will own one someday. I’ll most likely buy it for myself! 🙂
5. I adore the C. Wonder fox belt buckle (they have it in the store) but this heart is pretty cute too!
