1. Wooed by Wood Vintage Pacific Sunnies 2. Camp Brand Goods Hoodie 3. Teroforma Whiskey Stones 4. Nixon Rover SS Watch 5. Star Wars Espresso Cups 6. Sony PlayStation 4 7. Jack Spade iPhone Gloves 8. Herschel Vintage Heir Backpack 9. The Art Of Shaving Lemon Kit
As promised here’s the much anticipated gift guide for him. I shaped this one so that it works for pretty much for all the men in your life, whether it’s your significant other, your dad, brother or best friend. And I should probably add it was made in close collaboration with my dude who contributed a few ideas (and I’m assuming a few hints as well!). I’m going to let you speculate on which were his (hello PS4!)…
Personally, I’m a huge fan of the Jack Spade iPhone gloves, as they’re super stylish as well as practical. The Star Wars espresso cups are a no brainer in my books, as are the gorgeous Wooed by Wood Vintate Pacific Wayfarers. I mean those babies are just too cool! Other fun gift ideas include the whiskey stones (which we have and I can attest that they’re fantastic), a fun Camp Brands hoodie for the outdoorsy dude, a classic Herschel backpack and a delicious smelling shaving kit.
In the midst of the holiday shopping frenzy in which I have found myself over the course of the past couple of weeks, I signed up for Botticca, which is essentially a market place for top independent jewelry designers (I don’t think I need to reiterate my love for jewelry here) and it has some pretty sweet deals on occasion during which you can score some fantastic pieces.
As expected Botticca was pretty awesome and while I was looking for a little Christmas gift inspiration one thing led to another and before I knew it I stumbled upon Vivien Frank Designs and became a proud owner of the sweetest, most delicate personalized necklace. Admittedly I was a bit skeptic of how it was going to turn out as I patiently waited for it to arrive, but once I opened the tiny little package it was love at first sight. The last time my heart skipped a beat like that was when I opened my personalized Silver Promo rings.
I’ve wanted a personalized initial necklace for so long and I’ve featured many, many beautiful ones on here before but I just never got around to ordering one for myself. I don’t know if it was the holiday spirit or whatever but I’m so happy I finally got around to doing it. Mine looks like this.
Have I mentioned this makes for an awesome present? You probably picked up on that already
P.S A gift guide for the man in your life will be up tomorrow!
1.Kate Spade iPhone 5/5S Cover 2. Kiehls Soy Milk and Honey Body Butter 3. Kevia Chevron Earrings 4. . Kevia Ring 5. Clare Vivier Star Print Foldable Pouch 6. Kate Spade New York Gramercy 7. Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette 8. Sincerely Jules I Heart NY Tee 9. Anthropologie Limited Edition Monogram Mugs 10. Cowshed Juniper Berry Detoxifying Cream
I have no clue why everything in this gift guide took on a sparkly golden note but as I was selecting it, it seemed very glam gal appropriate. I got the Kiehls body butter on here as a gift myself a little while ago and let me tell you, that stuff is ahhhmazing. Of course, you can never go wrong with a sparkly iPhone cover, a little fun cocktail jewelry or a classic monogram mug with a twist.
Urban Decay’s Naked 2 eye shadow palette is every glam girl’s absolute must have and while I don’t necessarily consider myself particularly glamorous (at all!), I just got it as a little December treat for myself and I’m in love with the wide range of neutrals that can easily take your make up from day time to night time.
Oh, and that Clare Vivier pouch is just a dream! I would sure love for Santa to bring me one (hinting and winking until I’m practically squinting:-)).
When I was pregnant with Lara, I was utterly clueless when it comes to maternity wear. I refused to buy much because of God knows what reason and so by the time I gave birth I owned all but one pair of maternity jeans and two maternity shirts. Not that buying maternity wear is absolutely necessary but admittedly walking around with unbuttoned jeans get very uncomfortable once you’ve hit the 7th month mark (at least that’s when I officially hit shelf/whale status). Instead, I just relied on leggings towards the end of my pregnancy, which was fine I suppose but it would have been nice to dress it up every once in a while too.
I have no clue why it didn’t occur to me to just focus on getting a few pieces that would work during my pregnancy and after it. I mean the oversized shirt and sweater look is kind of what I live by so truthfully I have no clue what I was thinking. I probably wasn’t because, hey I was pregnant and pregnancy brain is sort of something I totally excelled at.
Also, at the time there was no émoi émoi yet because if there was, this maternity concept store would have been an ABSOLUTE pregnancy life saver. Created by Adèle Bounine and Nathalie Fargeon in April 2010 (that’s when Lara was born folks!) it’s THE go-to destination for everything pregnancy related. Émoi émoi features gorgeous maternity wear, tons of natural beauty products and anything else you might need for when the time comes like diaper bags, baby slings and nursing fashion.
Basically, it’s a pretty spectacular place for a mama to be.
Émoi émoi is based in France but they ship internationally to 40 countries.
I wrote about Gemagenta’s stunning jewelry a little while ago when I found the adorable necklaces inspired by Le Petit Prince in her Etsy shop. Well, those are all sold out now unfortunately, but she has another beautiful and very special piece in there: the Under This Moon necklace.
The necklace features a personalized lunar phase charm of your special night along with the date engraved in the back. Now I know the official gift guides haven’t started yet but this necklace is just too thoughtful not to share. Just indicate the special date when placing the order and the moon phase will be handcrafted just for you. Or you can get the Under This Moon bracelet if that’s your preference.
I just love it!
