Gifts you’ll love to give or get!🎁

Happy holidays everyone! Hard to believe we’re already half way through December, and I know a lot of us (including me!) are still purchasing last minute gifts. This can be stressful, so I’ve rounded up my favorites, the season’s bestsellers and a couple of style boards to make it easy for you to click and shop last minute Christmas gift ideas!

I also have a few pro tips for you when shopping at Nordstrom. Believe it or not, there is still time to get free shipping, and many things will arrive by Christmas Eve! And did you know that if you happen to live close to a Nordstrom store, you can shop online and pick up in store — AND get free wrapping? WOW, what a time saver! Read on for gifts you’ll love to give or get 🙂


The comfiest pant you’ll wear 24/7

Vuori zip hoodie | Vuori Jogger

If you’ve followed me for awhile, you know how much I love the Vuori jogger. It’s probably the number one selling item on this blog, and everyone loves it — even my 20 something nieces! If you haven’t tried them yet, pick up a pair immediately – you’ll be glad you did. And since matching sets are THE 2020’s trending outfit, I decided to purchase the matching hoodie. Not only does it make a nice-looking outfit, it works perfectly under any of your jackets or coats. See yesterday’s IGTV here for more gift ideas!

The Slip face covering is SO good! It’s comfortable and soft, the colors are really pretty, it has an adjustable nose wire, and it’s washable! I dare say it’s one of the best ones out there. Consider the Silk pillowcase for yourself or a loved one — it’s luxurious and anti-aging, so they say 🙂

Nécessaire body wash is all over Instagram, which means I had to try it — and it smells INCREDIBLE!

Tula is another cult favorite, and I’ve been using the cleanser, the brightening eye balm and the primer. I  absolutely love all 3!

Olaplex #3 is on Emily’s list, and everyone thinks it’s great!

The Nars lipstick is my girlfriend’s absolute favorite nude color

I had to include the egg cooker, it’s my favorite household appliance — and now Nordstrom carries them!



Sparkle tops under $60


 Cheers sweatshirt | Sparkle tee | Mother denim

Check out this 1901 sparkle tee — it’s so cute! And last year, this Cheers sweatshirt sold out pretty quickly. It’s a festive piece you’ll have for years to come, and who doesn’t need a little sparkle?



Perfume … the ultimate luxury

Le Labo, Santal 26 candle

The love affair with Le Labo continues, and Santal 33 has been my go-to, every-day fragrance for the last few years. Ever since I read the New York Times article about “that perfume you smell everywhere,” I was intrigued and even wrote one of the first blog posts about it here. There are other favorites too, including Jo Malone, Tom Ford, Creed, and this newcomer Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris. Everyone loves a new perfume!






Charlotte Tilbury

Not only is Charlotte Tilbury a personal favorite, but the packaging is really beautiful, making it the perfect gift for everyone. You can pick up a set like this, or a beautiful eye palette like this one, and I’m positive it won’t get returned!

I tell this to all my friends: never go to one counter and have your makeup done, and then walk away with everything from that same line. And though I believe that with all my heart, for some reason I still have a drawer full of Charlotte Tilbury (!) I’ve purchased many items over and over (read more about it here). Here are my must-haves: Magic Cream, Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder (I use color medium), Magic Away Concealer (I use #3 for reference), Pillowtalk everything, and these lipsticks: Kidman’s Kiss, Sexy Sienna, Kim KW, Tell Laura, and Pillowtalk.


Splurge beauty gifts

Splurge on a Dyson hair dryer – it’s the besst!

These Artis brushes are a cult-favorite, they’re on my list to try

Since we’re all at home these days, diffusers are everywhere!

Augustinus Bader is another product everyone seems to love

The GloPRO microneedling device is my personal favorite I use regularly



Puff sleeve top and new denim

Puff sleeve tees and fun sweaters are everywhere, and I know you’ll just love these new ones! Remember, no matter our age, we can all find a version to try. This Rails sweatshirt is so cute, and I found some new ones like this Frame sweater and this cozy velour top.

Two new favorite jeans are this one by Frame, and this one by Mother.


The coziest sweater for $69!
