A CG Holiday Gift Guide

Friday, November 24, 2017

Every year it gets harder and harder to find unique, thoughtful gifts, #amiright?? My list usually consists of shoes, and I try to get Matt some things he might not think to buy himself. I'm always trying to think of things that are different and cool, but still functional. I've never done one of these before, so this was definitely a learning process, but I've put together a few things I think would make some great gifts this Holiday season.


HERS
  1. Longs jewelers - John Hardy Classic Chain Square Link Bracelet: An everyday statement piece is always a good investment. Something like this John Hardy link bracelet can be worn alone, stacked or with a watch - classic, fun and goes with everything!
  2. Tanceuticals - Face/Body Kit: Because who doesn't love a sun-kissed glow in the middle of winter #Ifeelbetterwhenimtan
  3. Makeup by Sarah Lord - Rose Water Mist: My girlfriend Sarah (and killer MUA) makes this incredible Rose Water mist that's perfect for a mid-day skin re-fresh, spritzing on your pillow before bed, or used as aromatherapy - it smells SO fresh and clean, and instantly relaxes you. Use code SBSSHIP for free shipping! (now though 12/2)
  4. Apolis Market Tote - Customize Your City Series Market Bag: I recieved one of these totes for my bridal shower and it's seriously one of my favorite things we got. For one, it's customized with my new last name, wedding date and location, and for two, it fit literally everything. The quality is amazing and it has a waterproof bottom, so no leaks! Such a cool, personalized gift idea.
  5. Bali Secret - Hair Vitamins: I just talked about how I much I LOVE this product, so naturally I had to include it in his gift guide. This stuff is too good and makes my hair so shiny and soft. If you're looking for some extra little gifts or stocking stuffers, this is the perfect thing!
  6. Swell - Water Bottle: Other than the fact that these bottles come in the cutest colors and patterns, they are seriously the BEST water bottle. I'll put ice in mine at 8:00 AM, and at 9:00 PM there will still be ice in it... it's like magic, really. Worth the extra few $$ (compared to other water bottles) - and did I mention the colors are SO CUTE?? Oh right...
  7. (Nordstrom) Gorjana - 'Cayne' Crescent Pendant Necklace: Super chic, goes with everything, can be layered, and won't break the bank! Perfect gift for the fashionista in your life.
  8. H&M - Short Coat: I love this black/white checked/hounds tooth pattern. It's just a little bit oversized and can be dressed up or down. Get it while sizes last!
  9. Rebecca Minkoff - Midnighter Medium Crossbody with Chain: A great weekend bag to fit your necessities for a night-out. Structured, studded and so cool - definitely a classic worth having in your wardrobe.
  10. DecZ - Customizable Rain Boots: DecZ is a Boston-based company who makes customizable rainboots. Buy the boots and choose from 30 insert designs to create a style that's totally HER! The best part - the inserts can be swapped out whenever... it's like having multiple rain boots in one! Stay tuned for how I style mine (can you guess which inserts I chose?) Use code GLITTER20 for 20% off your order!!
  11. (Sephora) Kat Von D - Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette: These are the perfect colors for the makeup lover and the less experienced. If she wears a lot of makeup or a little bit, every day, or once in a while - these colors work well across the board. Super pigmented and includes step-by-step instructions for creating three different eye-opening techniques.
  12. (Target) Puregardian - Essential Oil Diffuser: I am obsessed with these things. They make your home smell amazing and work to purify the air. Mix your favorite essential oils to help ease winter colds, get rid of odors (i.e. dog.) or help you to relax. This is one of those things that you'll both enjoy! Check out some of my favorite oils HERE.
  13. L.L. Bean - Wicked Good Moccasins: I've had these since high school and they're for real the best slippers around. They're indoor-outdoor so you can safely grab the mail without worrying about your feet getting cold or wet. I put mine on (along with my PJs most days) the second I get home from work. No shame.




HIS
  1. My Package - Weekday Boxer Briefs: I know what you're thinking.... boxers? Lame. Not these... Matt has *1million pairs and says he'll never go back to regular underwear. They have a little "pocket" for his... you know what... and they're incredibly soft. Really though - I would totally wear them if I had a... nevermind... Great gift idea.
  2. (Target) Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 - Polaroid Camera: This little guy is just a fun thing to have around - it's a legit polaroid camera! You know, one that instantly prints the little photos (this one prints mini pix). Have fun taking silly selfies, bring to a family gathering, or let your friends snap some moments at a party. Grab some film HERE.
  3. (Nordstrom) MVMT - Leather Strap Watch, 40mm: Great everyday watch option at a great price point! Currently on sale for BLACK FRIDAY.
  4. (Amazon) UE Roll -WONDERBOOM Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker: We have 2 of these little guys and they are so perfect for traveling. They're compact, waterproof (great for the beach/pool/lake) and sound AMAZING.
  5. (Nordstrom) Adidas - Beanie: A great, stylish beanie for the guy who wants to look cool, and stay warm!
  6. (Nordstrom) Bose - SoundLink® II Around-Ear Bluetooth® Headphones: Headphones can make or break a plane ride or a workout. Bose makes awesome products and these white ones are super cool. Worth the splurge.
  7. (Amazon) Tree Ranger - Beard Oil: For the guy who grows out a face-coat during the winter months... this stuff smells amazing and keeps those stray hairs in place!
  8. Swell - Water Bottle: Like I said before, maybe twice - Swell has the coolest color options. How awesome is this teakwood pattern?? Man-chic x100.
  9. AmazonPop Socket: Once you go PopSocket, you'll never go back. Trust me. Place this little guy on the back of your phone and rest assured you'll never drop it on your face mid "In-Bed-Facebook-Scroll" ever again.
  10. Amazon - Himalayan Pink Salt Lamp: Salt lamps can help purify air, reduce electromagnetic radiation and airborne infections, ease Asthma and allergy symptoms and even boost your mood and help you sleep. Why wouldn't you want all that?? Also, it looks so cool lit up at night. #Moodlighting
  11. Nordstrom - UGG Slippers: Man slippers. I don't think this one needs an explanation - if he doesn't love the coziness, well... I don't know what to yell ya ;)
  12. Nordstrom - Nike Roshe Two Sneakers: You can never go wrong with a good pair of wear-everywhere men's sneakers. Jeans and a Tee shirt, tailored sweatpants, basketball shorts... anything goes with these.
  13. Patagonia - Better Sweater 1/4-Zip Fleece: Another cozy, chic menswear piece. Great for layering or by itself!

What are on your lists this year?? Let me know what you plan to get your guys too - I'm always looking for new ideas!
