Holiday Gifts:

(View this Polyvore set by clicking here)

      Each year I find that writing out my holiday shopping list gets more and more difficult. And is it just me or are the price tags on items especially shocking this year? I love the "season of gifting" and I want to deliver elegant gifts but I don't want to break the bank. Here is a list of presents all at various price points starting at just $9.99 and nothing is over $100! You're sure to cross lots of names off of your list with's gift guide!

1: Dior Show Black Out Mascara- An elegant and effective mascara perfect for all your product loving friends.
2: Snowflake Ornament (set of 6)- Wouldn't a tree look so serene with these snowflakes falling down over it?
3: Kurt Adler Statue of Liberty Ornament- Ornaments are great gifts because most of my friends don't have any ornaments for their tree yet. Plus I love how universally appealing (and "indie") it is to have a historical land mark hanging on your tree.
4: Cupcake Ring- Since I LOVE to bake and most of my friends have had me whip up a batch up cupcakes for them at some point, I thought this ring would be a nice sentimental gift from yours truly. 
5: Marc Jacobs Daisy Solid Perfume Ring- Like two gifts in one, it's both an accessory and fragrance!
6: Butter London Nail Lacquer- Fancy nail polishes make chic gifts for your lady friends.
7: Cashmere Beret- Clothing is hard to buy for other people but hats tend to be more safe. I think a basic beret is something every girl would love to own but something she would never indulge in on by herself. 
8: Tiffany Notes Disc Charm- How special would it be to give that little blue box away to that one friend who is always there for you?!
9: Candied Apples- Nothing beats homemade sugary goodness created with love in your very own kitchen. (I'm also making this recipe as well this year!)
10: Champagne Flutes- A lot of my friends are getting coupled up lately (see example here) and I thought champagne flutes were a nice way to ring in the new year together.
11: Diptyque Epinette Spruce Scented Candle- For all those home bodies and book worms you love. Give them a scent that will keep them company in their favorite place at home. 
12: DL & Co Bright Skull Candles- For the more eccentric home bodies and bookworms!
13: Tights- I love to give crazy tights as holiday gifts! Most girls I know stick with black opaque tights...give them some sexy tights instead for a special treat. (option 1, option 2, option 3)

Where are you finding 
great holiday gift deals?



  1. What a great list! I'd wouldn't mind 11, 12 and 13 for myself.
