I love how festive and beautiful everything is, the holiday parties, the cookies, the Bailey's, and yes, the shopping. Especially for my children, especially when they don't give me a list with impossible to find toys on it, and when they remember to stay within Santa's budget!
I also enjoy shopping for my mom, best friends, and my sister. Because that means whatever I find for them... I get for myself, too. (Wait.. .am I doing this wrong?)
Anyway, here are some great gift ideas for giving—or for receiving, hint, hint—this holiday season!
Loulou's Top Eight For Her:
Sephora Color Daze Blockbuster: This make-up palette has all the make-up you're going to need for a very long time. This expandable palette includes lots of your Sephora favourites, in every colour you can imagine. The set contains 64 waterproof eye shadows, 12 cream eyeliners, 48 lip glosses, 3 blushes, 6 multi-purpose eye, cheek, or lip creams, 3 multi-purpose luminizers, 3 make-up brushes, and a partridge in a pear tree.
Tory Burch iphone case: My sister has asked for a new iphone case for Christmas, and since I'm a huge Tory Burch fan, I think this would make a great gift
Aqua Solid Wrap Scarf: I want this scarf in every colour! This time of year, my accessory of choice is a colourful scarf. This makes the perfect gift for almost anyone on your list, and it's only $58.
Nostalgia Electric Theater Style Stirring Popcorn Maker: Popcorn just happens to be my favourite snack, especially when I'm watching movies and TV shows in the comfort of my home. How fun would a girls night in be with popcorn, wine, and Homeland on TV? Pretty perfect if you ask me!
Books: I have always loved receiving—and giving—books for the holidays. There's nothing I love more in a home than seeing bookcases filled with dozens of books. To me, books make a home, and that's why my children always get a few books for Christmas to add to their little library in their rooms. I love giving friends copies of my favourite books.
Osolee Bracelet: I have a few Osolee bracelet's and I wear them every single day. And every day, I get a new compliment on them. I love the "India" Turquoise and Gold Wrap Bracelet so much it's hard to believe it's under $30. Seriously! Time to stock up, my friends.
