Every year it gets harder and harder to tell people what I want for Christmas, especially since Im able to make my own money and buy whatever I want. I also find it extremely hard to buy present for others as well. Buying present and making someone else happy is the best thing I know of. I will splurge more on the people that mean the world to me rather then on myself.
For the holidays Marie Claire releases their ultimate gift guide with 101 gift ideas for the girl who likes beauty, home, fashion and more in their December issue. It is truly the ultimate gift guide with items for everyone in various price ranges as well as current and upcoming trends. I have rounded up and gathered items from the gift guide that I would absolutely love, but that I also think are some great items and ideas for gifts to others. To subscribe to Marie Claire you can do it here. It is also a great idea to give away a subscription to any friend, sister, mother or girlfriend who are interested in fashion, trend tips and how-to guides.
Starting off with beauty gifts we have the Prada’Candy’ Eau de Parfum Collector’s Edition (Limited Edition) ($114). I have the Prada Candy Perfume and I absolutely love it so therefore I would not mind having a pretty gold bottle among my perfume collection either. Second is another perfume and it is the Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Eau De Parfum ($25-$115). It smells so good and is definitely one of my top perfumes that I would recommend not only to myself but also to by for someone else. New in stores is the Fresh Cocoa Body Exfoliant ($45) and I just love Fresh. I use their face moisturizer daily and it is just an amazing brand. Thereafter something that is so in trend right now and so gorgeous is rose gold shadows. I chose one which is a little bit cheaper but amazing which is the Colourpop La La rose gold in an Ultra Metallic Finish ($5) and also if you feel like splurging a little bit you can get the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Scratch ($19).
Moving on to some of my fashion mut-haves or wanties a fur coat is everything and you need to have at least one in your closet. This Oversized Faux Fur Coat from DKNY is currently on sale so take the opportunity! Secondly I love a good pair of pumps and these Open Toe Pumps from Nine West (NOW $49.99) are not only gorgeous but so easy to wear. Splurge real good on a nice watch and spoil yourself, or a loved one because what do girls love more then diamonds? This Two-Tone Gold Diamond Watch from MICHELE is a bit pricy, but if you want to gift a nice watch from MICHELE you can mix and match bracelets and watch heads as you want and skip the diamonds if it isn’t within your price range. The Blouse from H&M Studio has been one of my absolute obsessions that Ive wanted to get for so long and it is also below $100. Finishing off with some must-have bags is a really nice Leather Messenger Bag from ZARA with a gorgeous feather detail and finally if you are more on the splurge side the oh so classic and beautiful Saint Laurent Sac De Jour Nano leather shoulder bag which is the mini version of the tote.
