Here we are, only a little more than a month away from Christmas! Seriously, where did this year go!? This week I've really been getting into the Christmas spirit as I was pinning away some Christmas decor ideas on Pinterest. That also reminded me that I haven't even handed out my Christmas wish list to The Husband and my family yet... Just kidding, I don't do that... not every year...
At first I thought, "nah, I don't need anything", but let's be real, it's nice to get something nice for Christmas. I decided to make a list anyway of things that would be awesome to get *winking feverishly in The Husband's direction* and I also added some items that I personally own and would definitely recommend as gift for a special female in your life.
FRENDS Layla Headphones $150
|Get these at Net-A-Porter|
I'm not a huge fan of the headphones you get when purchasing an Apple product like the iPhone or iPod, and I'm totally in the market for some new headphones. Of course I'm lusting after these because, you know, they are rose gold.
RIFLE PAPER CO. 2015 Travel The World Calendar $26
|Buy it at Rifle Paper Co.|
I'm obsessed with this beautiful calendar, and I might just get it for myself for Christmas. (You can check out the full calendar on their website). I think most people would appreciate this as a gift.
OLYMPUS PEN e-PL7 camera $599
|Find this camera here.|
Dear Santa, I've been SO good this year... Pretty please!?
DIPTYQUE Do Son Eau de Parfum $140
|Get this perfume at Nordstrom|
Perfume is one of those go-to Christmas prezzies for women, and for good reason. Who doesn't like some smell-good from Santa? There are many I could recommend, but this is one I own and would buy in a heartbeat for someone else.
DANIEL WELLINGTON Classic Sheffield watch $199
|Buy this watch at Daniel Wellington|
This watch is a timeless classic and I wear mine almost every day. It's light-weight, simple and classy. I know most ladies would be thrilled to receive it.
ACNE STUDIOS Canada scarf $175
|Get it at NET-A-PORTER|
This is my favorite scarf; so soft and big and perfect for winter! Of course, you don't need to spend this much, just make sure you get one that's soft and made of high quality materials.
HUNTER rain boots $135
|Get them at Shopbop|
Damn, I love these boots! I have a tall and a short pair, and wear them all the time during the cold and rainy months. They come in so many colors, and if you are buying it for someone else, I'd recommend staying with the neutrals just to be safe.
CLARISONIC Mia cleansing system $99
|Find it at NORDSTROM|
I can't say enough good things about these cleansing systems. It really is worth the price tag and the hype. I use mine every day with a gentle face wash, and it makes my skin so clean and smooth. There are many different ones to choose from, with different functions and speeds and gimmicks, but I've been using the classic Mia for a long time and it's really all you need to have a squeaky clean face.
JO MALONE candle $80
|Buy this candle at NORDSTROM|
Christmas time and candles go hand in hand as far as I'm concerned, and you really can't go wrong with a beautifully scented candle from Jo Malone. Yes, they are quite pricey, but they last for a really long time and their scent payoff is way better than a lot of other candles. Plus, the packaging is just gorgeous!
LUSH The Olive Branch shower gel $9.95
|Get this shower gel at LUSH|
Whenever I smell this shower gel, I always think of Christmas time. The Husband and I love this shower gel for this time of the year, and I promise you that you wouldn't think twice about getting it if you were to sniff it in the store.
That's it, folks. I recommend getting one very special item instead of buying lots of little random things. (Of course, you don't have to buy anything from this list, it's just for fun and to give those of you who need help some ideas.) Also, it doesn't hurt to ask your loved ones if there is anything specific that they really really want for Christmas; it will make your Christmas shopping a whole lot easier and everyone will be happy.
*** I will be announcing my Christmas giveaway next week, so stay tuned!***
I wish all of you a very merry holiday season!
