Thanks to the earlier start I got this season on shopping for those on my gift list, I’m ready to start wrapping a few. This is of course coming from the girl who is usually always still wrapping on Christmas Eve! It has been my goal this year to have everything done by mid-December so that I can enjoy a couple of weeks of cheer before we start our move. (A hectic holiday combined with a move sounds pretty awful!)

 

I picked up a few things from Bloomingdale’s, where I know I can always find something for everyone on my list. Gadgets for dad (last year I got him this digital photo frame that actually looks like real photos rather than some electronic), something cozy for mom like a Barefoot Dreams blanket, something Brandon wouldn’t buy for himself (like this Ember mug, now in a bigger 14oz size!), and even toys for this kids. Bloomingdale’s has some of the best deals I can find all season long and with the free shipping and returns, it has always been one of my go-to shops.

Right now at Bloomingdale’s but ending 12/1, you can take 20% off purchases of $100 – $249, 25% off purchases of $250 – $499, and then 30% off purchases over $500! There are also plenty of things on sale, which can then be stacked with this (almost) sitewide discount. Also, all beauty purchases over $100 are 15% off and many gadgets are 15% off with code CYBER.

 

 

I picked up this Adinas Jewels necklace trio, which would be such a great gift for a sister or any stylish gal! I like that it’s three necklaces that can be worn separately or layered together.

 

 

Another gift I grabbed for Brandon (hoping he isn’t seeing this!) is this Ullo Wine Purifier. Not only does it aerate your wine giving it such a better taste, but it also removes sulfites from your wine! I’ve ready a lot of reviews saying people don’t wake up with headaches after using this since the sulfites are taken out. Has anyone ever tried it? The reviews are incredible, so I have high hopes. (It’s fun giving a gift you get to enjoy also, haha!) Super unique gift under $80… and then take 15% off this and other gadgets using code CYBER.

 

 

And you know how I feel about giving candles… I love a luxury candle as a gift! Sounds corny, but it’s truly the gift that keeps on giving. Most luxury candles burn for around 50 hours or so, of course depending on the size, but then the candle jar can be repurposed afterwards. Three of my favorites are the Cire Trudon Abd El Kader Candle, which you can see above in the turquoise box, the Nest Holiday Candle, which I actually burn all year long, and any of the Jo Malone London candles, with my specific favorites being Wood Sage & Sea Salt, Lime Basil Mandarin, and then English Pear and Freesia.

 

 

That Kid Made Modern Arts and Crafts Library you can also see above is something Watson and Rosie will be receiving! Honestly, they might get to open it early so that we can make some fun crafts in the days leading up to Christmas.

 

 

I’m wearing this sweater, which sadly sold out over the weekend, but some similar ones are here, here, and here.

 

I’m sharing lots of other great gift ideas below! Don’t forget the sale…
