Today, I want to share my personal wish list. The Best Gifts for Her Gift Guide is filled with gifts that are my tried and true favorites with a few great finds sprinkled in. This Gift Guide is my Personal Christmas Wish list…so if you are a long time follower and have some of my favorites and want to know what I’m hoping for, this is it! Because my birthday is also in December, it’s a bit longer than it normally would be!
Also, to be totally honest, it is always a bit hard to put this together. There is really nothing that I “need” at all. I am truly grateful for every “thing” I have and will mostly cherish time with my family of 5 and my parents and brother’s family at Christmas. But everyone likes a little something under the tree and for their birthday so….
Watches and jewelry are always on my list. This Moi et Toi Ring is such a sweet gift. I love the two stone ring that symbolizes you and your love. It is custom so available in almost any combination. It takes 4-6 weeks so drop that hint quickly! These earrings are a pretty sparklers that will go with anything. A classic Hermes watch would be quite special! This beautiful bangle bracelet that you customize with the birthstones of your family is on my list for certain. It would also be a great Mother’s Day Gift.
Looking at what I might really “need” it seems to be coats! I’ve not really replaced any of mine in a while (which is the great thing about classics!) but it is time for a bit of an update. I’m loving this gorgeous cream wool dress coat as I need a dressier coat. I did just pick up this great coat under $250 for our trip to NYC. It’s been great!
I’ve also almost worn my Canada Goose parka out! I’ve had it 7 or 8 years and worn it literally hundreds of times. I love it over everything from workout clothes, jeans and a sweater to wearing it over ALL my layers for a soccer game. It is such a great coat. I’d buy a black one this time as I think I could wear it over everything even at night. I do love the white though! I highly recommend it if you need a really warm coat. They are truly worth every penny!
Things I wear everyday are fun to receive as well. These great sneakers would be on repeat with everything from jeans to dresses. I truly need a new robe and this cashmere robe was a favorite long ago. This cozy robe is also one I love. I’d love another Dudley Stephens fleece this year. They come in three styles. The Park Slope is my favorite. I’m always freezing and these fleece tops totally live up to the hype! Chic and warm… Win-win! I love the classic neutrals as well as the beautiful colors. I think it’s best to size up. I’ve linked them both at Tuckernuck and their brand site.
I’ve been thinking about a new bag and this neutral print tote that can be carried as a crossbody is the top of my list. I love the handbags from this brand as they are so well made and timeless. I received this mini tote with pale blue trim last year and loved carrying it. I also love anything from Pamela Munson. This embroidered beauty that is a collaboration with Schumacher and this gold croc embossed clutch are so special! The gold metal style is something new for Pamela and really stunning. And an iconic Bottega Veneta bag would be fun, too. I’d choose this pretty gray. This gorgeous bag is still on my list. The classic shape and the signature bamboo handles make it a classic you (or I!) will carry for years to come.
Beauty gifts are always fun, too. Getting my hair back in shape and healthy has been a big focus this year! I’m trying not to use hot tools on it as much and it seems to help. One of my college girls has this great blow dry curling set and it’s on the top of my list! It is easy to use, her hair looks great and the curl holds. Best of all it’s about half the price of a very popular brand and works just as well! I’d love to try this
As much as I love my favorite fragrances Jo Malone Red Roses for Spring and Summer and Velvet Rose and Oud for Fall and Winter and the YLS Libre that has been a favorite of yours the past two years also, I’m loving adding new fragrances to my rotation. The new Creed Carmina is TOP of my list. We stopped in the boutique in NYC to sample it and it is divine!
I hope this gives you a few new ideas to drop hints about as well. I have other items in the boutique below, too!
