HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas and NYE are my favorite holidays ever since I was a child. I love decorating the Christmas tree, the house, baking Christmas cookies, making a gingerbread house, but most of all I love choosing gifts for friends and family. And the organized person I am, I get all my gifts in advance to avoid late delivers, out of stock items or lost mail.
I decided this year to write a blog post with some gift ideas whether for you or your loved one, family, friends etc. So keep reading to see my gift recommendations. Although I have to say it takes a lot of will power not to reveal the gifts too soon lol.
For the fashionista in your life:
We all have at least one fashionista friend in our life. If you are thinking what would they like try some of these gift ideas: Cool pair of shades, these RayBan shades go with every outfit. Designer beanie, this Acne Studios beanie is so cute, and the pastel color mix is to die for. A currently trendy jewelry piece is a chain necklace, and this Ana Luisa is perfect (plus they are an eco-friendly brand!). Statement earrings will be in fashion next year too, and these Vivian Westwood logo earrings are classic. A fashion designer book as the perfect accessory for their coffee table, I love the catwalk collection books, and this YSL one is next on my to buy list. Stylish reusable shopping bag, nothing cooler than being sustainable when grocery shopping and this Beyond Green Anti Plastic Bag Club is perfect!

Whether they are obsessed with skincare, make up or hair care I got you covered! A mini fridge for skincare is every skincare junkies dream, so you won’t make a mistake purchasing that. Skincare products are never enough, and this Drunk Elephant set is perfect for any skin type and any age, plus the packaging is adorable. The perfect lip shade for everyone is the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk, and this set is perfect for the make up junkie. A make up brushes bag is a very thoughtful gift and ideal for all make up lovers.
