In honor of Black Friday, which is basically Christmas for this blog, I’m doing a big holiday gift round-up with special guest star recommendations from some of my splashiest pals.
Happy Thanksgiving, gang.
As someone who has a love/hate relationship for Black Friday and a strictly love relationship with your blog, I look forward to reading your thoughts! Can you include a teeny bit of kid-friendly gifts too? I have no children, but a lot of nephews and a niece. They are the toughest audience to shop for.
Okay, I am a bit late. I just found your blog, and maybe you are still doing some Christmas shopping. I don’t do any…but like to help others in their shopping endeavors.
Hmm..for girl friend, I suggest Chan Luu leather wrap bracelets. I love those and am lusting with a capitol L for one. You can find some cute, affordable alternatives on ETSY.
I also love Pearl Earrings right now. So classic, yet so hip. Great for wearing with big necklaces. Any woman, from tween to old and grey, can use them. Large silver studs (like Tiffany’s) and knot studs are also great.
Lululemon anything is loved by all active women. I can never have enough Lulu. The Cool Racer-back tank is easy to fit (no built in bra, most women will fit a variety of sizes…I have them in size 6-10 that all fit me!) and is great for exercise and as a layering cami. The groove Yoga pants are also an easy flattering fit for most women. Ditto the Wonder-under for leggings types.
For men…hmm…dunno. I always get my husband Banana Republic gift cards, then spend them on myself. I also spent a 300$ git card WE got for our anniversary on boots for ME, so I suck at this gifts for men things. The Boots are London Fly (Yeven), and and are the awesom-est boots ever, in case you are wondering.
I have 2 girls, boys are another world to me…but I have a few nephews and boy clients, they like gory things involving crap, farts, or death. Little boys like anything Thomas the Train related I believe.
For girls; toddler/preschooler love the Melissa and Doug puzzles, magnetic dress up sets, and stamping kits. School aged girls like the kits to make Jewellery, tattoos, stickers, etc. I got my 9 year old a bunch of long balloons and pump and book on how to make balloon animals and she is loving it. She also loves learning oragami. She is DYING for an iPod touch if you want to spend buck (boys want this too). She also loves the Wii “just dance” games. Kindle is a great gift for any tween/teen who enjoys reading.
