What I’ll be gifting (and asking for) this Christmas.
I really let this month slip by without getting a few gift guides shared at my usual early time. Better late than never though, and this year I’m keeping it simple with just one amazing gift guide. As buying for women, and knowing what women want is my specialty, I’m focusing on what to gift her this Christmas. Luckily, there’s something here for every age group. A bow or treasure box for the young miss, a cozy lambswool blanket, cashmere socks and mittens, and lip gloss sampler for the young lady, and an elegant camel hued coat, chinoiserie ice bucket (that doubles as a flower vase), statement bow heels, and an ornamental flower to brighten up the her space. Oh, and treats for all in this imported goodie basket all the way from the lovely UK!
Pink lambs wool blanket – I bought a gray gingham version of this blanket for the little one a few years ago, and it has become the favorite blanket coveted by all!
Blue cashmere socks – A very reasonable price (even more if you get them during Black Friday sales) and a beautiful blue color that she will love.
Pink cashmere convertible mittens – I am all about functional gifts that can be used and enjoyed, and you know she will think fondly of you each time she is warmed by her darling pink mittens! (These are on my wish list, too!)
F&M goodie basket – For the Anglophile who has sadly, not been able to get back to the UK since 2018 – ok, it’s me – this basket of goodies from Fortnum’s is the perfect gift for her. What I love doing with things like this is breaking up the contents and making my own personalized gift baskets (with silk scrunchies, a fancy vessel, or a cute festive notepad) and knocking out multiple gifts for multiple people in one sweep!
Porcelain flower – This is slightly random, but I am obsessed with this thing! If she loves interior design and decorating, this is the missing piece to her puzzle.
Lip gloss set – If you’re going to gift “beauty” items, make sure they’re non-toxic!
Camel coat – Talk about a worthwhile investment! Year-after-year a camel coat remains a style staple of the cold-weather seasons.
Baby blue bow barrette – The perfect sized bow that completes any outfit. Under $35 for Black Friday sales and comes in lots of pretty colors.
Chinoiserie ice bucket – For the lady who loves to entertain, or the lady who just likes a hundred and one ways to display flowers around the house.
Designer travel bag – Not just for long distance! We use these bags for everything; I like to use it as a handbag organizer and keep everything in it to make switching handbags easy, and the girls stash away all of their favorite pens and markers in them.
