We’re earlier than ever with our gift guides and here’s hoping our families don’t dilly dally with their holiday shopping! Our picks are what’s actually on our Christmas lists lol! In addition to our gift guides, we’re sharing other gift category ideas that we’ve given or would love to receive. Check back as will be adding more gift guides throughout the season!
Wallet: It’s time to replace my wallet, and this metallic rose gold zip-up wallet is beautiful! It reminds me of a metallic green wallet I had years ago that got so many compliments! The size and compartment configuration is exactly what I’m looking for.
Beanie: Never a bad hair day with a cute beanie! Winter cold & rain does a number on my hair, so I love to throw on a cute neutral beanie to run around town or for going on family walks.
Camel coat: I discovered this coat too late last year and it was sold out in my size! I was excited to see it brought back this year. This color and style is classic and will be a winter coat essential for years to come!
Hair oil: I use the Olaplex system to keep my highlighted hair healthy and strong and this is one of the additional treatments my hair stylist has highly recommended!
Felt hat: This brand is top-rated and a favorite of bloggers. I love the slightly upturned brim!
Candle: Our friend makes these soy candles by hand and the scents are truly amazing! I bought a bunch last year as gifts for family and also received one myself. I’m now a fan for life!
Shacket: This jacket trend is still going strong–don’t be afraid of the oversized look. It makes a modern statement! I love these neutral tones and this one is such a great buy!
Bracelet: Both Krista and our friend Dawn of @partytildawn have similar chunky chain link bracelets. I’m obsessed! They look so cool on their wrists and I want to copy them ha! This style comes in other colors but I love this neutral one that will go with tons of outfits.
Sneakers: These are highly-rated for comfort and add interest to casual outfits with the black detail on the side.
Denim dress: I love the style details on this denim dress! Investing in a denim dress that you love is a wardrobe staple that you can style year around!
OTS sweater: This sweater is affordable, stylish and it gets great reviews on Instagram! I love an off the shoulder sweater for a warm date night look!
Snakeskin boots: Julie has these boots in black, so I know they are such a cool style! I love the snakeskin for something different!
Denim jacket: This denim jacket is so unique with its cute puffed sleeves! It’s another year-round denim piece that will be so fun to style!
Black purse: This Rebecca Minkoff bag is cool and oversized, and I love the chunky chain and fringe detail. Rebecca Minkoff bags are always my go-to for a purse update!
Hair tool: I’ve seen this root volumizer demonstrated on Instagram, and I think it will work perfectly on my fine hair! Being a child of the 80’s, I’m always looking for ways to create more lift in my hair!
lsw picks: cozy edition
Fair Isle fleece: Guaranteed oohs and ahhs if you give someone this cozy fleece! Such a cute neutral pattern that brings up visions of woodsy cabins and snuggling up to a toasty fireplace!
Beanie: First rule of cozy is keeping your head warm! This style is simple and modern for the hippest of casual looks.
Robe: I (Julie) have this robe and hands-down it’s the best robe I’ve ever owned! Incredibly soft and cozy, without being heavy. I have it in light gray but I also love this rich plum color!
Candle: Same candle as on Julie’s list. This is the “Warm & Cozy” scent….what more can we say! 🙂
Slippers: Like a hug for your feet! These slippers are so soft inside and will last for several winters. We’ve bought the guy version for the men in our lives and it’s their favorite slipper ever!
Joggers: Soft as can be and so cute with a cozy fleece (see above!). Great for lounging around the house or for pairing with a puffer, beanie, and sneakers for easy casual outfits!
Blanket: The same dreamy soft material as the robe above, this blanket makes such thoughtful and luxurious gift! This subtle neutral animal print is so pretty and would fit with almost any decor.
lsw picks: loft edition
Cardigan: We always gush about this jewel button cardigan because we love it that much! It’s literally the perfect little sweater for the holidays and would even make a fantastic warm layer with a dress for a wedding or special evening. We love wearing it alone but it’s also very pretty unbuttoned over a cami. The buttons and slight puff sleeve make it so special. Comes in two other colors.
Sweater: A universally flattering sweater that makes a great gift for moms, mother-in-laws, sisters, etc.! We both have this sweater and love it over leggings and it’s also cute styled with a miniskirt and boots. The flecked pattern is such a pretty neutral! Comes in other colors and is usually on sale for under $40. A bestselling style that is restocked every year!
Leopard print pants: Krista has these pants and loves the rich colors and small scale leopard print. They make a great fall and winter pant and would be ideal for work or dressed up for date night.
Christmas pjs: These festive pajamas are a great deal since they’re priced as a set! Buy them for all the women in your house to wear on Christmas morning!
Grey skinny jeans: These are actually called jeggings, but they fit like the most amazing denim skinny jeans! The grey wash is awesome–not too light, not too dark–and they have such a flattering and slimming fit. Very comfortable high waist and a nice stretch. Loft jeans are their best kept secret and we’ve loved every pair we own. An incredible price for high quality denim!
Fleece: We love buffalo plaid in winter! This cozy fleece will be a big hit on Christmas morning. Krista has this in the white/black plaid and loves it! Would make a great gift for a teen or young adult girl.
Belt bag: Sherpa is so popular right now and we love the trend of having it on accessories! This sherpa bag is so cute and would make such a fun crossbody too. The neutral color would coordinate with so many outfits!
Scarf: Add a pop of holiday to every outfit with this adorable plaid scarf! Makes a great stocking stuffer or fun gift for all ages.
