Being the perfectionist that I am, the HOLLA-days and the gift giving that comes along with this time is very stressful. Sometimes I over think gifts so much that I pass thoughtful and crossover into the “I don’t get why you are giving this to me” territory. That’s right, I’m SO thoughtful that people don’t even understand it. And I’m humble. Anyways, looking at the J. Crew Holiday Gift Guide is my salvation around this time of year. Mainly because it allows me to live in a fantasy world, an obvious hobby of all the JCR gals. Here are some of my fave picks for gifts to give from Crew (some may not even be featured on Crew’s official gift guide, so ya know, these ideas are pretty exclusive. Gosh, my humble attitude is coming out again, please excuse me.) All of these babies will be $25 and under for those of us who get visibly excited when there is actual money in our possession aka we are broke. Rich folks, you wait your turn and come back for the more expensive selections in some later posts.
Archie Grand for J. Crew Notebook $10
This notebook is supacute and before you give it you can pre-program J. Crew Review in there for your bestie. Muhahaha.
Horseshoe Charm Necklace $22.50
I have always wanted a horseshoe charm necklace! So if you didn’t know anyone who wanted one before you read this…now you do, hint hint. Seriously though, this necklace is just so darn cute and priced perfectly at just $22.50!
Crystal Hand-enameled Bangle $22.50
Continuing with the jewelry theme, pretty much all of the bangles from Crew are under $25! With the term “arm-party” being coined this year, stacking up sparkles is the newest and coolest thing to do. And I’m sure Crew bangle would be more than welcome at any get together happening on an arm.
Malin+Goetz® votive $16.00
Anything that smells good is an automatic hit. Done.
Okay, so it’s possible to be broke and still be an awesome gift giver. High five! Now get out there and dominate gift giving, don’t over think it, it’s easier than you think!
