Valentine’s Day is next week! For all you late shoppers like me, I thought I would share my gift picks for Valentine’s Day. These gifts would be perfect for every girl, and even for you to get ideas for yourself, (go ahead and let your guy know what ya like)!

I’m a sucker for a great pair of earrings and these are just STUNNING in rose quartz. I also love cute and comfy graphic tees and this ‘Xoxo’ one is perfect. I bought myself one over the weekend that says, ‘Kiss, Kiss.’ It was so hard to choose between both tees, but I knew I had to add it to this gift guide!  I’m addicted to candles. I can never have too many. This limited edition one is a must – these always smell unbelievable!

A few others include the perfect silk-cashmere wrap (great for any woman, any season), this ‘Heart’ catchall, and these sexy pink pumps.

During this time of year the best gift sets and palettes hit the department stores, and it’s just a no-brainer kind of gift! Every year I give at least one to my sister. It’s also great to get a couple for yourself too. The thing about palettes is that all the color combinations are done for you – the guess-work is gone. Whether you’re looking for neutrals, shades of purple, or smokey tones there’s a palette to help you combine the perfect options. Palettes are great to travel with too! Just pop one or two in your bag and you have endless options while on vacation.

Will you be gifting a makeup palette? Do you have favorite?

Gift Guide for Him

Holiday Gift Guide: For Him

December 03, 2014

Gift Guide for Him

plaid shirt | shave kit | sunglasses | bracelet | running shoes | travel pouch | headphones | passport holder | duffel bag | cologne

The big question:  what to get the men in your life who have everything? I ask myself this question every single year! I have a lot of men in my life to shop for — my husband, dad, brothers + father-in-law. They all have great taste + they are all hard to shop for! I’ve rounded up some ideas to help you shop for the traveler, the gym buff, the sophisticated man + the laid back guy(s). My husband, Tony happens to own a few products shown above (the bracelet, shirt, cologne + shave kit). A couple he bought for himself + others were given to him as gifts.  He loves them, I love them + he says he gets compliments all the time when he wears them.

The plaid shirt is cool. What guy doesn’t like a plaid shirt? It looks better in person. But I chose it because it’s an easy gift + when Tony wore it, I found myself asking him several times throughout the day where he got it » means I really liked it on him. It fits great + he will get a lot of wear with this one! Ok, this shave kit is something special. Us girls like to indulge in our creams, lotions + potions…Well get your man a luxurious grooming kit! If your guy has to shave everyday (mine keeps his goatee tidy), or has sensitive skin, then get him the gift of the art of shaving. These Maui Jim sunglasses are really nice. It’s a great brand and the sunglasses are made extremely well. The ones I chose will look good on almost any face shape. This David Yurman bracelet is a bit of a splurge, but it’s a good choice for the guy in your life that enjoys wearing jewelry (my hubby loves his, I got him one for Father’s Day). These Nike running shoes are great for the casual guy or the runner. I own a couple of pair (woman version obviously), and really like mine. They are very comfy + lightweight. This travel pouch is so perfect for the traveler! It’s suede + I like the more rugged look it has. It makes a great personalized gift. These Bose headphones are so cool! I like them in white. Bose products offer amazing quality + your gamer/traveler/music lover will no doubt LOVE these! Travel in style with this vegan-friendly passport holder. Monograming is free! This duffel bag is affordable + great for him to carry to the gym, the airport or to work. Finally, this ‘Platinum’ cologne by Chanel is so wonderful – It smells ahhh-mazing!! One of my husbands favorite fragrances. GET IT, he’ll love it too!

I hope my guide sparks some ideas for the men in your life!
