Dear Santa… Holiday Gift Ideas 2016


What do you want for Christmas?
Ummm… IDK…

Sound familiar? Have a point of view already! There are tons of fantastic options out there, and you don’t want errands (mall returns) for Christmas, do you? Instead, opt for items you actually want and will use. Some food for thought below!

Cashmere Wrap

This oversize cashmere wrap (currently 40% off!) is perfect for traveling – keeping you chic and cozy as you jet off for business or pleasure. Comes in five color options (I honestly can’t choose, they are all so versatile!). Here’s another very similar option to consider: Fringe Cashmere Wrap.

diptyque candles and fragrance

They smell amazing. And, when you’re done with ’em, they make super trendy pencil cups, tiny vases, or vessels to store your Q-tips. #recycling.

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer

The hair dryer of the future will *only* set you (or Santa) back $400.

Hunter Wellies

If you’ve had your eyes on Hunter Original High Gloss Boots, you’ll be happy to hear there are new color options in stock! I have the Original Black Gloss, but Graphite Gloss, Dark Slate, and Military Red are oh-so-tempting, too. Also think the short Sperry ‘Saltwater’ Waterproof Rain Boots are cute-as-can-be.

La Mer

Confession: I’ve never owned any La Mer products, but from the rave reviews, I trust they’re onto something. While definitely a splurge, take advantage of holiday offers and gift sets.

Le Creuset

All I need is one of everything, and we’ll probably have the next Julia Child on our hands. Probably.

M. Gemi Shoes

I’ve never owned a pair of M. Gemi shoes, but something tells me they’re magic. Enjoy $50 off every pair until Monday!

Sail to Sable Dresses
I mean, how hard is it to pick just one?

Now that we’ve hopefully inspired your “gift-to-self” or “Dear Santa…” list, what else should we consider gifting this season? Share your favorite gift items in the comments below!

Snow, Ice and a Nice Coat from Crew

I wasn’t dreaming of a White Christmas…but there is plenty of white to go around whether we like it or not.

We won’t let this snow emergency turn into a fashion emergency.                 Repeat after me: “Even in the snow and ice you can look nice!”

A few little lessons before you’ll be granted your gold star…

Lesson #1: A Nice Coat from Crew can be both Cozy & Chic

Santa just brought me the Stadium-cloth Boulevard Trench…and I’m obsessed! This Minnesota winter’s got nothing on me! (…ain’t got nothing on you babe…)

Why it’s the S#!+

  • Stadium-cloth is Crew’s warmest fabric (made esp. for them in Italy)
  • “Inspired by the fabric used in vintage football jackets, stadium-cloth is a compact, high-density wool that adds tremendous warmth without the bulk”
  • The trench is the classiest most timeless silhouette, ever.
  • Falls just above the knee…keeping your derriere warm
  • Cinched belt keeps you skinny….you lean, mean, snow-fighting machine!

…Don’t fight the cold, embrace it with the luxurious Boulevard Trench!

Lesson #2: Footwear Can Still Be Fun!

Just because there’s a nip in the air doesn’t mean you have to wear Uggs! Get some winter wellies (see also Hunter wellie warmers, I’m obsessed!) and some cutie booties!

Stylish and Sturdy….Just add some weatherproofing spray! Anyone own Quoddy boots? They look cozy…but are they cute? I’m undecided…let us know what you think of em!

Just add hats, scarfs, hoods, snoods, earmuffs, tippets and camp socks and you’re all set to venture out in a winter wonderland!

If you’re learned that snow and ice don’t have to get in the way of looking nice…then I grant you a Gold Star!

Until next time…MM
