Since we’re already creeping up to Christmas, I thought it would be a good idea to share some of my favorite gift ideas with you! A lot of these are items I’ve already bought for my friends, and the rest are just some great gift options I’ve seen throughout stores. I hope you enjoy!
Madewell is one of the cutest stores I’ve ever shopped from. And although it’s a bit pricey, I love finding some good deals in the sale section (especially around the holiday season). If you’re looking for a gift for a close friend or family member, they have a lot of high quality and simple jewelry that would be great options. My sister got me a ring from Madewell for my birthday a few years ago, and I still wear it all the time (they last forever)! Here are some links to a few of my favorite pieces on their website!
- Beaded Faux-Pearl Necklace | $ 29.99 (on sale)
- Pavé Circle Stud Earrings | $14.99 (on sale)
- Crossover Ring | $22.00
Anthropologie, by far, has the most aesthetic stationery I’ve ever seen! It’s definitely my go-to store when I want to buy gifts because they have such a huge variety of things, like clothes, jewelry, accessories, and stationery (which is definitely my favorite option). My friends are probably sick of getting journals and pencil cases each year, but everything is just so perfect and I know anyone would love receiving these pieces. Here are a few of my favorite picks!
- Rifle Paper Co. World Travel 2019 Calendar | $26.00
- Farm Fresh Weekly Meal Planning Pad | $15.00
- Penned Posies Journal Trio | $15.00
Sephora Skincare & Makeup
Sephora has a really good sale going on right now, so if you’re looking to buy makeup or skincare for a gift, then this is the time! They put together small packs of skincare or makeup products and are selling them for amazing prices, so I wouldn’t miss out on any of these. I found the links to a few of my favorites (and I even bought one of them myself, shhh…)
- GLAMGLOW Forget the Filter INSTAMUD™ Set | $35.00 (on sale & $68.00 value)
- TARTE Girl Boss Goodies Skin & Makeup Mini Set | $15.00 ($34.00 value)
- FIRST AID BEAUTY Priming Paradise | $28.00 (on sale & $60.00 value)
I hope this list helped you get some new ideas! I chose these three stores as my favorite options for gifts because I’ve found that it’s a lot easier to buy stuff like stationery or skincare than it is to buy clothes (and it’s definitely a lot less stressful)!
Thank you so much for reading, and comment if you have some more gift ideas that you can share!
