My first gift guide is here! This one is full of things I think any classic lady would love. All price points, too. It starts at $16 and goes up to… well, let’s just say there are a couple splurge items. But you know we’ve got to add things to our own wish lists too!

  1. Isn’t this mug the prettiest? I love the idea of gifting a mug with some hot cocoa mix inside, or any other little surcee tucked into it.
  2. I fell in love with this tray a while back, then spotted it in the Southern Style Now Showhouse and decided I needed it. So of course, it goes on this gift guide, too!
  3. These tortoise shell earrings would go with most anything and they are under $50!
  4. I have this PALMS book and think it adds such a nice touch to any table or shelf. It’s small—not a huge book at all. You guys also know that I think a palm branch adds the perfect little something to any room. Gift this to one of your tropical-loving ladies!
  5. Isn’t a silver mint julep cup such a classic piece? I use mine to keep pens inside on my desk and another to hold pheasant feathers on a bookshelf. This one is under $30 and can be personalized!
  6. I wear diamond stud earrings every single day and rarely put on other earrings. These are a great faux option under $23!
  7. I’m on my second year with this planner and am obsessed. I actually have the weekly planner that is 2018/2019, but this yearly planner by Appointed Co. is brand new and ready to fill with special dates! I especially love the spiral binding so that it lays perfectly flat when I’m writing in it. You’d think a planner would be a personal item to buy for yourself, but this one can be personalized with embossed initials on the front, making it a super nice gift. I get asked about mine all the time, so I truly do think any classic gal would love this.
  8. I have a huge love for this Beautycounter Hand Cream Trio. You can separate them and give to a couple girlfriends… and then keep one for yourself! You’ll be hooked. It’s the best hand cream ever. Actually, all of the Beautycounter holiday gifts this year are really good! I always buy some Christmas gifts from that collection.
  9. This Mark & Graham Essential Crossbody Bag is under $100. It comes in six colors and is a best seller! I have a few Mark & Graham pieces and think the quality is amazing.
  10. Ohh how I love a boat tote. Every member in our family has at least two or three! I also give them as gifts all the time because it’s one of those guaranteed-to-be-used kind of presents. I prefer the Lands’ End Canvas Tote Bags because they have so many pockets inside and one on the outside. We always get the extra large size.
  11. Last year Brandon gave me a gold bangle that was custom made (locally in Charleston!) by Christina Jervey Jewelry. This one on her site is thinner, but otherwise it’s just the same as mine. This is obviously a huge splurge item since it’s solid gold, but Christina can also make bracelets using brass. And you can always use this as inspiration and choose a gold plated bangle, like this one for $32!
  12. Girls, add this LAKE Pajamas Robe to your wish list right away! I live in mine. It’s incredibly soft and just the right thickness to wear you can wear it all year. The color options are gorgeous, too.
  13. A classic pair of red gloves is a timeless gift. And these are tech-friendly!
  14. A travel jewelry case is something everyone needs, but it’s not something you’d think to buy yourself on a whim. (right?) My parents gave me one a couple years ago and I’ve been so thankful to have it whenever we travel.
  15. The NEST Holiday Candle is my all time favorite!! We burn them all year because it’s not overly Christmas-y. Brandon always compliments the way our house smells whenever I have it lit. It’s also available in this smaller size for just $16.
  16. Can’t beat this classic toiletry case for just $22!
  17. I recently treated myself to this exact notepad from Dixie Design and have been in love with it since. It feels so custom and special—and only $26. A notepad is something everyone needs, but receiving one that is personalized like this or like any of their other notepads would be such a treat!
  18. Here’s another splurge, but this Madewell Transport Weekender was one of the best gifts I’ve ever received. It’s the perfect size for a weekend away and will stand the test of time.
  19. I think this manicure set is adorable! It, too, can be personalized. I always wish I had something like this in my bag whenever I break a nail or if a nail starts to feel a little jagged.
