It’s only one week until Thanksgiving, can you believe it? The holiday season is really sneaking up on me! Each holiday, one of the things I love to do is make lists of the perfect gifts for the people in my life – including friends, family, and clients! I search out the best sources and fun unique ideas to make the holidays brighter for the people who are on my gift lists.
This year, I thought it would be fun to bring you some of my favorite things – the go-to gifts that are perfect for anyone on your list! That includes the fantastic new book from Kate Space, Places to Go, People to See, which is part travel guide, part fashion photography, and a whole lot of style!
I also love jewelry, and the iconic T earrings from Tory Burch are among my favorite things to wear (might have something to do with the initial, right)?. But I also love to give them to others. And this year, Tory Burch is also offering an amazing fretwork necklace that contains a surprise – a solid perfume that smells fantastic!
I’m also loving the copper and rose gold trend right now and this open-work cuff by Sabine is a gorgeous look in warm metal.
Anyone who knows me knows that I love kelly green – it’s one of my signature colors! So I adore this python embossed clutch in that fab color from GiGi New York!
I also love a little bling – who doesn’t during the holidays? This Ted Baker embellished sweater in a gorgeous shade of blue is perfect for those parties and events for the holiday season! I think this color should have been the Patone Color of 2014.
If smelling great is on your holiday to do list, Kate Spade’s Live Color Fully Scent is fresh and fun all wrapped into one! Not only is the fragrance fantastic, but the packaging is gorgeously bright and bold!
Of course I also have some favorite items for the home, too! Not only is home decor my business, it’s my passion – and I’m a real homebody in my personal time, too! I love to curl up with a good book at home by the fire, and these Ralph Lauren throws are perfect for snuggling.
Cooking is another of my favorite things to do at home, and when there’s a crowd for Thanksgiving dinner, nothing is better than this multi-tiered rack from Williams-Sonoma. It saves space and time! It makes my oven a work-a-holic just like me. Ha!
This glowing solid copper tray is another fave from Williams-Sonoma – perfect for serving drinks at a Christmas cocktail party! And you look like you are right on trend with all the copper I’ve been seeing at market.
This scented candle from Diptyque is a fantastic scent for winter months. My favorite year-round Diptyque scent is Fig, but for the Chilly season of the year, it’s Feu de Bois with the smell of a warm wood fire!
For the fabulous men in my life, How about great accessories like this handsome plaid scarf or the sophisticated Michael Kors watch!
And of course I can’t forget my favorite holiday gift this year for the kiddos on your list! My daughter is all about shoes (wonder where she got that?!), so these Clarks Snugglehugs boots will be perfect for sledding this year. They’re cozy and fun and go with the great sled she got from Santa last year. And I hear we’re in for a lot of snow in Arkansas this winter, so these will be perfect. Wahooo!
So there you have it – my list of favorite gifts for this holiday season! Soon I’ll be telling you what I hope Santa gives me this year. But for now, I hope you found a present or two while you were looking through these photos! If you would like to see MORE of my favorite things, go to my pinboard by clicking here!
