gift guide: for the littles

Admittedly, I do not know the first thing about children and what to buy for them. However, I got some real-world input on this here guide and you’d be a great gift-giver if you got any of the things on this list. I didn’t want to stick to one age, so I just grouped it all into “littles” and there’s something here for everyone.

black friday + cyber monday sales

black friday and cyber monday sales


Is there anything better than a sale? Aside from winning the lottery and kittens, of course. Likely, the answer is no, there is not. That being said, I thought I’d do you all a solid and let you know where the deals at. What kind of blogger would I be if I didn’t let you know who was having the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales? The worst, that’s what kind. I figured I should share this BEFORE Black Friday and Cyber Monday since everyone is traveling and with family and not internetting but bookmark this ish, it’s solid gold goodness.

holiday gift guide: for him

gift guide for him


flask set // briefcase // hat // catchall // money clip // scarf // whisky rocks // boots // mug

What on earth do you buy for him? Honest answer? Unsure. But I tried to cover various bases in this gift guide for him mostly based upon how incredibly difficult my boyfriend is to shop for. Now, if would you would have told me that the mere thought of shopping for him makes me want to hurt myself 8 years ago, I’d say you were nuts. Now I laugh at my 21 year old self. Self, you were a moron. That being said, this is a pretty solid round up. Some “fun” things, and other “need” things. I know my boyfriend needs a new hat and scarf. What man can’t use a pair of good boots? Also, a catchall so I don’t have shit all over the place. I win.

Also, your guy (or brother, neighbor, dog walker) may like some of my picks for Dad. Don’t miss out on my guides for Mom & Her, either!

holiday gift guide: for her

gift guide for her | via

cashmere sweats // lucite letter // monogram necklace // clairsonic // cross body bag // rebecca atwood pouch //scarf // birchbox subscription // darling magazine // birchbox subscription // mug 

I think shopping for the ladies is easy. Now, I don’t know your mom, but she might like a lot of these things also. You’ll notice that this gift guide for her also includes the clairsonic. It is amazing. Get it. Okay? Anyway, these are great gifts for friends, sisters, neighbors, the sweet girl that watches your screaming children, etc. But maybe you’re all “Christin, really…cashmere sweat pants?” and I’m like “yea, I mean…but like…it’s damn cold around here” or whatever. But like, it’s a sampling, okay?

If you still hate everything I picked, which is doubtful, or if you’re just greedy and want some more inspo, the following stores have great “gift guide” sections: Nordstrom // Bloomingdales //  CUSP // Saks // Sephora //J. Crew // Shopbop // C Wonder  // Anthropologie // Revolve Clothing // BaubleBar
