Great Last Minute Gifts!

When it comes to the holidays it seems that most people fall into one of two categories: those who adore everything about the holiday season (including shopping for the perfect gift!) and those who can't wait for the whole affair to be over. Being the ever cheerful, optimistic glass-is-half-full girl that I am, you can probably figure out to which category I belong, no? I mean, my personal tag line is "Happy girls are the prettiest girls"; ergo I do everything in my power to be happy! Which I why I embrace all things holiday related: Christmas music playing on the radio. Brightly lit shop windows filled with holiday decorations. Really amazing holiday sales on the hottest designer items! Picking out a Christmas tree (then dragging it ten blocks and up three flights of stairs!). Decorating what is left of said Christmas tree with adorable little ornaments that I have been collecting since I was seven. Holiday parties (and party dresses!) — even the dreaded holiday office party. Sugar cookies with frosting and sprinkles. Curling up on the sofa with a mug of hot cocoa on a blustery day…in a comfy cashmere sweater and chic designer jeans…and an adorable pair of casual/chic flats. But I digress…

Anyhoo, back to the holidays and the wonder of it all. Or, more specifically, wondering exactly how to pull off a fabulous holiday in these less-than-fabulous economic times. Everyone is feeling the pinch this season, and most people I've talked to are scaling back on holiday spending this year. While this may sound like bad news to some, it's actually good news. Not only are people taking a step back to evaluate their personal financial positions, but they are also taking the opportunity to look at what's really important — friends, family and the true spirit of the holidays. And the really good news is that retailers are responding by offering amazing deals, deep discounts on to-die-for designer goods and other incentives like free shipping. Which translates into even more savings for you!

So exactly how does one have a chic and stylish holiday on a somewhat restricted budget? Well, this year I am going for quality over quantity. I'm going to buy the best quality item I can for the budget that I set. And I am going to stick to that budget! I may not be able to afford a cashmere overcoat for my dad this year, but I can certainly get him a pair of great cashmere-lined leather gloves! And with that in mind, here are a few of the great budget-friendly items to be on the prowl for this holiday season:

For Her: Great gifts for mom, sisters, girlfriends, sisters-in-law, etc.

  • A gorgeous sterling silver bracelet. It may be simple, but it is solid sterling. Remember, when it comes to gifts buy the best quality that your budget can afford!
  • Oh-so-comfy slippers. An elegant pampering item that she would probably never buy for herself, but will absolutely adore as a gift.
  • Scrumptious scarf. Again, look for something elegant in silk or cashmere. Great sales out there make it possible to afford this little luxury.
  • Designer wallet. Just one glimpse of that designer logo will bring tears to her eyes!
  • Exquisite perfume. Remember, quality over quantity. A tiny bottle of a really fabulous perfume is far superior to an economy sized bottle of run-of-the-mill cologne. One of the wonderful little bonuses of the holiday season is that you can usually get a great deal on a fragrance gift set, many of which also come with a little free gift for you!
  • Cashmere gloves. Another of life's little luxuries that one never seems to buy for oneself!
  • Luscious home fragrance set. I actually received this as a Secret Santa gift from someone at my book club group and I adore it! In fact, I have snapped up several to give as gifts to co-workers.

For Him: For dads, brothers, best friends or boyfriends!

  • Guys are gadget freaks. You'll never go wrong with the latest piece of useful technology.
  • A unique and masculine photo frame (with a photo of you in it, natch!)
  • For the music lover, a great pair of high-quality headphones (preferably wireless) is perfect!
  • Burnished money clip. Keeps those bills nice and handy and safely organized. Added bonus: no more wallet bulging from his rear pocket like a hideous growth.
  • A subscription for streaming music or media.
  • An Amazon Prime membership. Seriously. Best Gift EVER!

Fun Family Pick:. The Lego Batman Movie. Your kids will watch this one over and over again (while you curl up on the sofa in your new fleecy comfies!

Uniquely Fabulous Hostess Gift: Because regular glasses are boring and I love all things pineapple, this adorable pineapple tumbler is perfect! A set of two is even MORE perfect. And you can never go wrong with an exquisitely scented candle.

For Yourself! Of course you deserve a reward for all the hard work and effort you've given to make this holiday bright. And if you're like me, you have indulged in a few too many cups of cocoa and platters of baked goods. So play it safe and limit your rewards to size-independent purchases:

  • New skyscrapers to kick off the New Year in style. These are particularly lovely because the heel is uniquely and stylishly sculpted, but is not too high to be able to dance the night away!!
  • A gorgeous cashmere scarf to brighten your winter coat.
  • A fabulous new slouchy handbag to replace the one I slammed in the car door and dragged through the mall parking lot.
  • And just for fun, a little something from Tiffany's…!?!

Well my dears, the clock is ticking and I'm off to finish up my holiday shopping!

xoxo,

Pretty Mama
