Holly Yashi is always a favorite gift to receive. Every season offers a new array of beautiful jewelry she will be sure to adore. Delicate and extremely feminine, you just can’t go wrong here. For a pop of color, we love the Royal Moon earrings. The eternity necklace is a classic that she will adore for everyday wear. I love the Meridian earrings and necklace that you can pair with just about any outfit–it’s a wonderful way to add color and charm. For a meaningful gift, I love the Valor necklace to signify resilience– we can overcome difficult obstacles and succeed.

When it’s time to go out and exercise in cooler temps, I absolutely adore base layers from Smartwool. Available in various patterns for both men and women, they have you covered from the cold when it’s necessary to be outside. Their Women’s Classic Thermal Baselayer color block 1/4 zip is my new favorite go-to. It  is the perfect weight. The 100% wool fabric feels amazingly soft and comfortable and allows you to stay toasty, while moving sweat away from your body. I love the black and blue color blocking!

A great gift for those that love to exercise, or those who want to get better at exercising, is the Venu Sq 2 from Garmin. This watch is good for men or women and comes in a variety of colors and face sizes. Whichever one you pick, you will have selected a fantastic smartwatch and health tracker. It will track specific exercises, your steps, heart rate, sleep tracking, stress tracking, it has a pulse ox sensor, will track women’s health, gives you mindful breathing exercises, hydration tracking, and fitness tracking, of course. But, it still goes way beyond that. Use it as a coach, create your own workouts, get your texts and notifications, use it for safety and tracking, and even use Garmin Pay for contactless checkout in stores. This watch is amazing with all that it does. Not to mention, it’s water resistant and very comfortable to wear.

For all your sunglass needs, we can’t rave about MethodSeven enough! These speciality polarized sunglasses come in a variety of styles and are available for a wide range or purposes. Whether you are a pilot (or just like the look of one), a grower, a trail runner, or just want to make sure you are protecting your eyes for everyday wear, they have you covered with a wide array or great looking styles. We love their Lennox Sun Polarizedglasses for women. So comfortable and great looking on. They are easy to use with phones and other screens, too, which is a must-have. You can choose from several different lenses that cater to specific needs in this style, so be sure to check out all the variations. We also love the Evolution Sun Polarized that comes in a very hip tortoise shell or black finish. No matter the pair you choose, we know she will be very, very excited to open these on Christmas morning. Want to try them out for yourself or your favorite gal? Do it, you won’t be disappointed!

I grew up in the 80’s and I love the idea of the instant camera. You better believe I am super excited about the fact that Fujifilm Instax Mini 40 is here for Christmas. This mini instant camera is really fun to play with for adults and kids alike. It’s got a great retro look with faux leather print on the outside. Take impromptu photos of anyone and anything or even selfies with this easy to use camera that will be sure to turn heads everywhere you take it. This makes a great gift! While you are at it, be sure to snap some pics of mom with her favorite people during the holidays so she can keep those mementos in a place she sees often. 

For even more fun, I love the Fujifilm Instax Square Link smartphone printer. There are so many creative ways to use this, including fun print modes, decorative digital stickers, frame templates and best of all, the photos get printed on the spot!

Want to give the gift of health? Vitamins are where it’s at. With all the things we are fighting every day, it’s hard to know exactly what it is you need to stay healthy.  Persona Nutrition has you covered. Follow the prompts to try a sample pack for yourself. You will be given a simple quiz to figure out what supplements your body specifically is in need of and they will customize a bottle of vitamins just for you. Are you tired? Stressed? Anxious? They will specially formulate a custom blend of nutrients your body needs to get you on the right track and send it to you in the mail. The whole process was very interesting, actually. I could customize every little detail and request add on supplements. What I received were two boxes for morning and night. They dispense individual packets labeled with my name and the supplements included with directions for taking in the day or evening. They couldn’t make getting healthy any easier. Once I began taking them, I could immediately feel a difference in how I felt. You can’t give a better gift than that!

Who doesn’t love receiving flowers? It’s a great way to brighten someone’s day. Unfortunately, though, fresh cut flowers can’t last forever and they quickly begin to wilt. That is, unless, they are from The Million Roses . These specialty dried roses are honestly quite breathtaking. Packed in a variety of eye-catching ways, these preserved gorgeous roses are available in a variety of bright colors, perfect for anyone on your list. They are presented in a lovely gift box. The great thing? They last this way without water or any maintenance whatsoever for up to three years! You can’t beat that!

I love a great pair of shoes. Shoes are probably my favorite part of an outfit. I love shoes that are a little different and stand out from the rest. However, I have some issues with my feet that make it so the shoes have to be comfortable or else, I just can’t wear them. I’m sure I’m not alone in that. My fellow moms out there know that if you have to stand on your feet all day, it’s of utmost importance that the shoes offer some serious support and cushion. We want the support of a sneaker, but the look of a very cute shoe. The Sneakerfrom Rothy’s is exactly that! Available in a wide array of colors and patterns, these shoes can be work with or without socks, year round. They are adorable and feel fantastic. For dressier occasions, I adore their Mary Jane‘s. There are a couple of different styles to choose from, but the ones with the bows are my absolute favorites! There’s never been a time I’ve worn these without receiving tons of compliments.

Would you guess they are good for the environment, too? That’s right, the signature material used in Rothy’sincredible shoes is made up of used water bottles! Unbelievable! The other unbelievable thing about these shoes is that when they get dirty, you can toss them in the washing machine and have them come out looking and smelling brand new! Whether you want a pair of shoes for everyday wear or for dressier occasions, there is something for everyone. We also adore their latest addition, their Lightweight Tote. Available in a variety of stylish colors, this Rainstorm Green color especially is perfect for the holiday season. It’s perfect for all your errands, day trips, and getaways. You’ll wonder how you got by without it for so long. Best of all, it is completely washable and sustainable–it’s made from recycled plastic bottles! 

I was recently introduced to Public Rec and now that I have tried them, I want you to, as well! Their clothes are absolutely amazing! For women, I love, love, love their All Day Joggers. I am short, so I can have a really hard time finding pants that fit well. Public Rec designs pants for women that you can select your inseam and waist measurements for the absolute best fit possible. Wearing these joggers makes me want to throw out all my other clothes and just replace them with these. Pair them with the All Day Jacket and it makes the perfect outfit for activities of all sorts. I really can’t stress enough how comfortable and flattering these clothes are. I also love their Here to There Leggings sized the same way the joggers are. Absolute perfect fit for exercising and they are so soft on your skin. Be sure to get their Here to There Longline Bra for the ultimate workout gear.

Carhartt is known for their durability and quality. While, I typically think of their products for men, you would be amazed at how many wonderful items they have for women. I love their women’s loose fit washed duck sherpa lined jacket for winter to keep her nice and toasty warm. The material for the jacket is thick and strong, making it perfect for cold wind because nothing is getting through it! If she loves vests, be sure to pick up the Women’s Montana Reversible Relaxed Fit Insulated Vest–a perfect layer to keep her comfortable and warm throughout the cold months. Not only is their clothing made to last, it looks great on, too!

Also for the traveler, I have to tell you about Koolaburra’s Yosha sneakers. These slip on sneakers come in black or white and will take you everywhere you could possibly want to go in comfort.

For all those holiday parties you plan on attending this December, it’s fun to add some pizazz to your wardrobe. It is fun to get to wear shimmery and sparkling items to celebrate. For just such occasions, I love Birdies shoes, like The Heron. Available in a wide array of colors and patterns, they offer seasonal selections that are perfect for Christmas and New Year’s. Velvety options are available and you may just want to pick up more than one pair. I love the charcoal ones, especially.

We love the layered look of pairing multiple necklaces together to create an extremely unique signature look. Such a great gift idea for the women and girls in your life!

I love giving personal gifts. I was recently introduced to MemoryStitch and I can’t rave about them enough! I’m sure you have a stack of well-loved t-shirts from trips, college, sporting events and concerts that create a patchwork of incredible memories if all put together. That’s exactly what MemoryStitch thought when they made it possible for us to create one of kind patchwork blankets made from those same t-shirts. This is the greatest gift idea and so simple to do. Simply visit their site, select the size of your blanket and begin the process. All you need to do on your end is select the correct number of t-shirts for the size you are creating. You can cut them to size, or for a small fee, let them do the work. Select the stitching and backing for your blanket. You ship it to them and that is where your efforts end. Before you know it, your t-shirts will be returned and transformed into a very special gift that will be cherished for years to come.

Love to traipse in the snow? Whether you like to go out in the snow for fun or because you have to, we have the greatest boots to share with you that we absolutely love. Baffin boots are top of the line, superb quality and design and the greatest thing to happen to winter in our opinion. We love the rugged Snow Monsterboots for men and the Nunavut for women. Designed with northern Canadian winters in mind, you know you will be set for the utmost warmth and comfort when wearing these boots. I love the fit and durability in these boots that can be worn doing outdoor activities, not just to keep the snow out, but to perform, unmatched by any other brand I have tried. But they don’t stop at snow boots. They have great options for hiking, too! The Borealis for Men can take him on adventures from Fall through Spring. A perfect hiking shoe for all seasons and intensive activity levels. For a versatile boot that can take you hiking and through the elements, but also look amazing as a casual shoe, the Southern is a great option, too! For women an equally multitasking boot is the Telluride. It looks incredible on whether you are going to dinner, to work or walking through the snow.

With a new year comes the renewed desire to be organized and put together. I know balancing schedules for the entire family, or your own assignments if you are a student, can be a challenge. I love the new Student Life Planner from Moleskine. This cork spiral bound planner is invaluable to the daily life of a busy student. Loaded with lots of room for assignments, goal setting, trackers and more, this planner is the perfect tool to get your thoughts and assignments organized. When utilized, it will help you focus in on your goals and help you feel accomplished and successful. All great things! Moleskin has a wide array of other great products, too. I love their notebooks and journals for a way to unwind at the end of the day and revisit your thoughts.

When it’s time to unwind at the end of the day, throw on your favorite pajamas and some of these oh-so-soft LâMO slippers. We love the Aussie Moc in red plaid to match your favorite holiday decor, but you can also find more neutral colors in this style as well. Once you slip them on your feet at the end of the day, the faux fur lining will feel so luxurious and warm, your feet will thank you! You won’t want to take them off, but that’s ok, too, because if you find you have to go somewhere, these are made to go outdoors, too!

We love the gift of relaxation. Believe it or not, one of my favorite ways to chill out is to do a paint by number painting. Pink Picasso has kits that include everything you need to get started. Select a print and when it arrives, you’ve got the canvas, the paints, the brushes. You just need to add the water and a nice comfy spot where you can take some time to let your creative side flow. But, if you are not creative (like me) you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find this is a very easy project that will end up looking like you knew what you were doing. All the while, you’ve been able to decompress, take some time away from screens, and really relax. You’ll find you want to grab a few to have on hand to enjoy. Check out all the great options available for gifting this holiday season. Pick the infamous Las Vegas sign or enjoy a Brilliant Bouquet to get you started.
