Holiday Gift Guides

With Christmas just a few days away, I spent the weekend buying final gifts for my family and friends. I’m almost done but I still have a few things to pick up and I’m waiting on a few to be delivered! This year I accomplished most of my shopping online, a first for me, and so far it’s gone really well!

For those of you who have yet to finish your shopping, I thought I’d pull together a little guide of my favorite online gift guides I’ve been looking at this season. Enjoy and try not to wait until Friday to check things off your list!

A Gift for Family and Friends 

1. FabFitFun created the perfect Holiday Gift Guide “A present for everyone on your list!” I personally love the Family Tree Picture Frame {a more personal gift} and the Spa Finder Gift Card.

2. Esquire shared “15 Last-Minute Gifts For Everyone on Your List.” One can never go wrong with a sweater from Banana Republic for men and gifts from J Crew for ladies.

3. FabSugar posted the ultimate guide “What We’re Gifting Our Friends and Family This Holiday!” The Diptyque Candle and Moleskine Artist Marketplace-Customized Notebook are perfect for your mom. The Lanvin Bow Tie Cufflinks and Woolrich Heavy Wool-Blend Jacket are perfect for your dad, brother and guy friends. I love the BaubleBar Think Pink Wrap, Catbird Alphabet Rings and Anthropologie Monogrammed Mugs for your sister and girl friends.

Gifts for Him 

1. FabFitFun threw together the perfect “Guys’ Holiday Gift Guide.” There’s something for your husband, fiancé, boyfriend, and the new guy.  My faves: Couple’s Massage and Weekend Away.

2. The Zoe Report put together a list of “10 Macho Holiday Presents.” Every macho man needs a Leather Strap Round Watch and Thatcher Sunglasses.

3. People found the “Perfect Presents for Your Guy!” Not only are there great gifts but the magazine paired them with our favorite Hollywood men. Check out the Miansai Bracelet and Converse Leather Sneakers.

Gifts for Her

1. The Zoe Report started a “20 Glam Gifts To Give & Get,” perfect for your girlfriend, best friend, sister or mother. I’d love the Polaroid Instant Digital Camera or the DVF Heart-print Earbuds.

2. People posted the “Best Celeb-Approved Gifts to Buy Right Now!” Every “it” girl needs a Kate Bosworth Funky Bangle and Stacy Keibler Flameless Candle.

3. Lucky made a list of “15 Wildly Cool Gifts,” all under $150. Personal faves: Anthropologie Scarf and Sissy Yates earrings.

Favorite Blogger Gift Guides 

1. nyc PR girls posted a “nycPRgirls Gift Guide” this weekend. The girls have listed gifts for your office BFF, manager, parents, brother, best man friend boyfriend, sister and real life BFF. It’s the perfect gift guide for those last minute gifts.

2. One of my BFF’s, Jackie at Simple Me, posted the perfect recipe for homemade lip balm. She also shared a link to other great recipes for homemade gifts!

3. If you have not visited The Confessions of a Product Junkie you must! Sarah is the go to girl for what’s in and has the best style! For the month of December she has been posting different holiday gift guides every Thursday.

Happy Holidays!
