Gifts for Him and Her

Gifts for Him and Her

The holiday season is here! I can’t quite wrap my head around the fact that it is nearly December, but it is and that means it is time to start your holiday shopping. I have started my gift guides for the season and am so excited to share them with y’all! Today, I am sharing my guides for him and her.

Let’s start with the ladies! I developed this guide at several different price points and I think these gifts are most applicable for your friends, sisters, sister-in-laws, moms, mother-in-laws, grandmothers, girlfriends, fiancés and wives.

I have been wanting experiences more than material things this year, but I still love great presentation. I think the *perfect* gift would be the Tuscany Marvel Book with a trip to Italy as a surprise inside of the book! I also love bundling cook books with kitchen tools. If you have a friend who loves to cook, you can’t go wrong with the New Defined Dish Cookbook, Meat Masher, a set of Spatulas and a chic Apron. If your friends already pre-ordered Alex’s new book, try out Big Macs and Burgundy. I would wrap all of this together and add this Have Yourself A Merry Margarita Ornament to the gift wrapping!

If you’re looking for some designer splurges, I always recommend the Louis Vuitton Neverfull (if you don’t have one, I use this every day!), I’m also eyeing these Chloe Geometric Sunglasses, Golden Goose Cowboy Boots and a Bottega Veneta Card Holder. If your girl is trendy, get her this Mint Green Nylon Prada Bag with Pouch. And if you have designer taste without the budget, get this Mini Kelly Dupe…It is less than $200 and looks *identical* to the real Hermes Mini Kelly.

Let’s all take a minute and admit that it is really hard to buy gifts for the men in our lives. With that said, I have learned a few tips about giving gifts to men over the years. For my dad, I know that a handwritten note is the absolute best gift I can give him, but outside of that, I’ve started paying attention to what my dad buys for himself. Mostly golf stuff and Peter Milar anything. So whether it is your dad, husband, brother or grandfather, look at what they buy themselves and maybe get them something they already have in another color or pattern. 

When I was telling my dad about the gift guides, he told me that when you’re thinking of a gift to get the men in your life, you should follow their hobby. So basically, if they’re a golfer or a car fanatic, look at that and then do some research on a great gift in that area. Also, pay attention to what they say they want. My husband and dad both want very few things in this world so whenever I hear them say, “oh wow! I want that!” I immediately make a note in my phone and save it for their birthday or Christmas. 

I hope these gift guides help in your holiday shopping journey and remember to buy things sooner than later as shipping has been taking FOREVER this fall!

Brit’s Birthday Dreams

Brit’s Birthday Dreams

Happy Monday, friends! I am so excited because it is officially just one week until my birthday! I know I’m probably too old to feel this way, but I love my birthday and get so excited for it every year. When I was little, I would actually start planning my next birthday immediately after my birthday party that year…it was a little over the top, but that’s who I am!

To kick off my birthday celebrations this year, I’ve created a birthday dreams wish list and decided to giveaway one of my favorite items on the list to one of my lucky followers…a Hill House bath robe! I love this robe because it is super luxurious and has a really fun neon trim around the edges. I have been wearing mine non-stop and can’t wait to give one away!

Blue Floral Dress, Alphabet Soup Bracelet, Chloé Sunglasses, Robe with Neon Trim, Jo Malone Earl Grey and Cucumber Perfume, Hermes Oran Sandals, Floral Pareo, Floral Bikini Top, Floral Bikini Bottom, Rose Prick Candle, Sleeper Feather Pajamas, Facial Steamer 

How gorgeous is this robe?! One lucky winner will get one of their own!

What are your favorite birthday traditions? Leave me a comment and let me know!

XO,

Brit
