It’s the season of giving, and there is nothing I love more than figuring out gifts and putting them together! I’m sharing some last minute holiday gifts today and talking all about some themes that you can incorporate while putting together your gifts. From picking out something for your significant other, your girlfriend who loves a good beauty buy, or a little something to splurge on for your mom (or yourself) – I’m including some pieces I have personally used and swear by!
It can sometimes be tricky shopping for a guy between them saying they don’t need anything or just being tough to pick things out for. I have a few pieces that might just help on your search. Firstly, I have to mention Duluth Pack. This brand is one of Armaan’s favorites to receive. Everything is handmade in the U.S., and the quality is exceptional so that they will last for years. Last year I picked up a Duluth duffle for him which he loves, and this year I decided to go for some fun things that he can put in it. Armaan is a huge wine lover. So when I saw this leather wine holder, I knew it would be so fun to put a good bottle of wine in it and add a wine opener for a gift. I also picked up these men’s toiletry kits that can be used for just about anything. Armaan loves to stay organized, so it’s a perfect travel companion. I am sticking some of his favorite face wash and this (really good smelling) cologne in one, so it’s a little extra surprise.
I’ve also included some other fail proof gifts below. From coolers, to bar accessories, ear phones and Patagonia – see some of my other favorites for the guy in your life.
FOR THE BEAUTY LOVER
What girl doesn’t love getting some new beauty products? I’m a huge skincare lover and have quite a few girlfriends that are as well, so these are some of my favorites to put together with skincare products and makeup that I love.
Firstly, I have to start with Uma Oils. I have been a long time lover of this brand, and I am totally in love with their whole philosophy. I can’t rave about the effects and benefits enough. Everything is completely natural and made from the highest quality oils, that work! I swear by their Anti Aging Facial Oil and their Anti Aging body oil (it lasted me a whole year!) to name a few. I’m gifting these to my mom with a sheet mask and a lavender neck pillow for an ‘at home spa’ theme.
My second favorite skincare brand that I swear by and use daily is without a doubt, TULA. This probiotic based brand has changed my skin for the better. I started out with their moisturizer and face mask (great spot treatment too!) and slowly moved on to everything in the line. TULA makes gift giving super easy and has the cutest gift sets that you can give to your girlfriend with a silk pillowcase for a skincare refresh kind of gift. Plus, you can get 20% off your entire TULA purchase (including holiday sets!) with the code KAITLINHOLIDAY.
You can add a little bit of everything to skincare and beauty gifts like this amazing all natural lipstick from Lawless which I love. It’s the most gorgeous matte liquid lipstick that has replaced my MAC one. The more natural, the better. This Mugler perfume is another love and something anyone would love to find under the tree or in their stocking. I’ve literally had people stop me and ask what I’m wearing. Oribe is another brand that is always a great gift. I’m gifting my sister- in- law an Oribe exfoliator with some nail polish and a magazine for a fun ‘at home manicure’ gift. The deep teal color is my favorite!
FOR THE LUXE GIFT
Sometimes, you just need to splurge. Whether it be a big milestone year or just time that you feel like you need to go above and beyond, it’s always nice to pick something unique. For me in terms of jewelry, that would be Dana Seng Jewelry. It’s probably one of my most emailed questions that I receive, asking about where I picked up my diamond ‘K’ initial necklace from! Her pieces are all handmade in California and are just stunning. You can pick whatever initial or numeral you’d like, and she can personalize it with your birthstone. I just picked up another one for myself in Armaan’s initial to layer, and I just ordered another to spoil a special lady in my life this holiday season. It’s a timeless classic that will become an everyday essential for whomever wears it!
Jacy watches are by the creators of the gorgeous Michele watches and are sold directly to consumer, making it a better deal! This watch is stunning with it’s diamond rim and leather strap. They also come in a ton of different metals and leather colors, making it a super chic addition to any watch collection.
Happy gift giving, and hope you can most of your shopping done before the holiday craziness over the next few days! Some holiday home decor is headed here later this week!
