2017 Gift Guide For Her


1  / 2  3  4  5 / 6 / 7 / 8


1. The tiny pailettes in the necklace give it an intricate, yet delicate look. Still super shiny, but understated at the same time – this is jewelry that a lucky lady will love, without breaking the bank. I think I might have to get this for myself!
2. The most unique and intoxicating fragrance I’ve ever smelled. I personally want this, but haven’t taken the plunge yet.
3. Basically a wonder-serum, the La Mer renewal oil is the perfect little luxury for your skin. A couple of drops revitalize and renew skin for a soft and even complexion. It feels and smells amazing!
4. This time of year calls for a great jacket- and the one I can’t live without happens to be my leather. While my go-to is black, this beauty from The Arrivals is a versatile and feminine shade of blush. Plus, the removable fur collar adds an unexpected edge that can make the jacket seem totally different.
5. Jason and I are obsessed with our Bose portable speaker.  You can easily take it in any room of the house, even outside if the weather permits.  Simply connect it to your smartphone via Bluetooth and you’re good to go.  This is a MUST HAVE on any list.
6. A pair of pricey sneakers that she might not buy herself, Golden Goose are all the rage and come in such a wide variety of textures and colors- there’s one for every personality!
7. We women love our cosmetics – and what’s even better than having all of your beauty faves, is having them perfectly packed in a beautiful case! This one from Bobbi Brown is the most beautiful shade of Bordeaux, and the structured shape makes it seem even more glamorous.
8. Did I mention that we women love our cosmetics. This set of travel brushes packs a punch with high-quality bristles, but in a petite size perfect for packing. Plus, how cute is that case?!


Mother’s Day Gift Guide



Mother’s Day is right around the corner, so I thought I would share some thoughtful gift ideas to spoil your special lady.


P.S. Mom if you’re reading- no, you’re not getting ALL of the below.


1. Notes: Sugar Paper.

My mom loves to write hand-written notes and letters.  I love Sugar Paper’s products, as they are always classy, but have personality. I actually chose Sugar Paper cards when writing to my parents and now husband on my wedding day. The classic notepad with gold foil detail would be a pretty accent to mom’s desk. SP also has custom stationary available if your mom loves to write letters like mine does. And if it’s a little bit of a splurge, Etsy is also a great destination for personal stationary. I love this store that lets you customize and make a truly personalized gift!


2. Card Case: Prada.

You can’t go wrong with a wallet, because I think it’s a luxury gift that you might not buy for yourself. I love this Prada card case, because it’s obviously beautiful, but it’s also the perfect size for slipping in a clutch or cross-body on a summer evening.


3. Candle: Diptyque.

My mom is a serious candle lover who creates ambiance by burning candles all over the house every evening.  This Diptyque candle is always a favorite, filling any room with its sultry, floral scent.


4. Cleansing Brush: Clarisonic.

My mom actually got a Clarisonic a couple years ago for Mother’s Day, and she absolutely fell in love. The deep-clean feeling is amazing and undeniable.  The Mia Fit is a new addition to the Clarisonic line, boasting an even more compact and light-weight design with two speeds (delicate and power cleanse).  It’s the perfect size for a mom on the go and can even be charged with a USB chord when traveling.


5. Hand Cream: La Mer.

I’ve recently found myself becoming one of those women who is constantly putting on hand cream. Call me a grandma, but I just call myself moisturized! My favorite hand cream by far is the hand treatment by La Mer. It’s gel-cream texture goes on like silk, and doesn’t have a thick or greasy feeling. I love that my hands instantly feel moisturized, but still clean – and without a film over my rings. I know it seems like a splurge, but once you try it, you’ll be obsessed. And so will mom!


6. Fragrance: Maison Martin Margiela.

My friend Rachel wears the Margiela “Jazz Club” fragrance, and ever since I smelled the slightly masculine and smoky vanilla scent – I’ve been wanting a bottle of Margiela’s “Replica” to call my own. While Jazz Club might be perfect for the cooler months, Flower Market is amazing for spring. It’s fresh, crisp, and you guessed it…floral, while not being overpowering.
