The Greatest Gifts for the Holidays

Happy Sunday, everyone! I hope you’ve had a great weekend so far. Today I’m teaming up with People StyleWatch and a few amazing brands to talk about the perfect holiday gifts for everyone in your life. I’ve received and tested out so many products and am so excited to share them with you! For me, the holidays is about giving special gifts to those who have are important in your life. With the StyleWatch 2016 Holiday Hits, you can find a gift for everyone in your life!

Marc Fisher Heels: these heels are amazing. They are the perfect holiday shoes and are currently on sale. They are also super comfortable, which is a plus. I’m obsessed with the velvet detail and the heel. It’s a subtle touch of glitter but just enough to make a statement! They’re also perfect to give to a friend or loved ones who collects shoes (I know a few of those). I’ve always loved Marc Fisher so receiving this as a gift (whether I treat myself or someone else treats me) would call for a very happy holiday indeed. Mobile Charger and Sonix Pouch: I can’t even begin to express how much I love each of these products! this is one of my favorite brands. It’s super fun and has the best gifts and agendas (I own two agendas). Everything is lighthearted and priced amazingly. This mobile charger is a perfect gift for the gal in your life who uses her phone way too much (me) and needs a backup charger while on the go! They even have a section of gifts under $50, which is a perfect and easy way to find some gifts fast. I have this agenda and how cute is this?! It’s perfect for every blogger! This is a brand that emphasizes the girl boss aspect of life, so it’s essential for that friend who is a total girl boss.

Sonix: all of my phone cases are from Sonix! They are the best. They last forever and are so fun and spunky. This pouch is perfect for throwing in your purse and putting all of your essentials inside of it. The reason I pictured it below with the charger is because I put my mobile charger in this pouch and then put them both in my purse on a daily basis. They are the perfect gift duo. Sonix also just came out with sunglasses and I’m dying for theseOPI Infinte Shine Prime + Gloss Duo Pack, Nail Envy Strength, Avoplex Hand & Nail Cream and Cuticle Oil To Go: OPI is one of my favorite brands for nail polish and nail care. I recently tried their Infinite Shine line and love it. It’s perfect for someone who doesn’t want to do 2 weeks of gel (or pay the price) but still wants to have their nail color last them a while. I also have been loving their Avoplex line. Everything smells so fresh and delicious and the small cuticle oil to go is especially perfect for throwing into my Sonix pouch while on-the-go and traveling. If you have a friend who loves nail care, these products are for her! This would be a great gift for my mom (mom, don’t be reading this!). Quay Sunglasses: Quay has the best sunglasses at the most amazing prices. I first heard about them a while ago when my friend who has a store started carrying them and I’ve been obsessed ever since. I’m dying for these, these and I have these but in the brown and need the pink. These also look like my Dior glasses but for a fraction of the price. I have so many friends/family members who love sunglasses. I could definitely gift a pair to my sister and she would be so happy! All of the sunglasses are under $100, too. Like…hello?! So perfect! My pink ones match with everything and I love the way they look on. Urban Expressions Crossbody: this little crossbody in berry has been my savior while going out at night when I want to be hands free, have a purse with enough space and a purse that is cute and adds a statement to whatever I’m wearing. Urban Expressions has the best vegan accessories! And the best part is that everything is reasonably priced so you can buy quality for an amazing price. This little bag is so beautiful, too! I also want this backpack. 

Dr. Brandt Magnetight Age-Defier Mask: this mask is perfect for those who want to take care of their skin, especially when it comes to aging. Dr. Brandt has such amazing products and you can search them on the website based on what your concerns are. For me, it’s hyperpigmentation from cystic acne so these products are what catch my attention. I tried the age-defier mask and it felt so great on my skin and the best part is the process of taking it off with a magnet! My skin felt rejuvenated and tight and it was especially needed after a stressful week of finals. I included it in my gift guide for beauty lovers because it’s that good.

For the 4 below items, make sure to check my Instagram throughout the day to see pictures of them! 

Sally Hansen Color Therapy: Sally Hansen is one of those brands that has been around forever that you love, trust and use regularly. There are 38 shades and I have the “Ohm My Magenta” color, which is a magenta/red color and is so pretty. I especially love the brush of the nail polish because it makes it easy to apply at home. Since I’ll be on a pretty tight budget in NYC, this is easy for me to do at home and it lasts up to a week for me! I want the Blushed Petal color next… it’s so pretty! Again, another perfect gift.

Makeup Forever Artistic Palette: I’m a sucker for eyeshadow. I have so many palettes in my bathroom but this one is one of my favorites because of how pigmented it is! It comes with 9 colors and is only $34, so is another perfect gift or stocking stuffer. My favorites are the neutral colors because those are what I wear on a regular basis!

Jergens Ultra Healing Lotion: now that I’m moving to NYC, I’ll need the best lotion I can get to keep my skin moisturized throughout the colder months. This one is perfect and has a fresh scent. I bought one for my mom, who has dry skin, and she loves it. I would put this in a beauty care package for Christmas for my mom (if she didn’t already have it because I went out and bought one for you!).

Kipling Velvet Crossbody: I love the mix of velvet and nylon. It adds a special touch to this cross body and the velvet is so soft! It can also fold over and it so comfortable and spacious. This is the perfect crossbody for a girl on-the-go who has a lot of things to carry but wants to have her hands free! And it’s on sale for $99.
