Christmas is right around the corner, and if you are anything like me this year, you haven’t done any shopping. I’ve been so consumed with my little one that I haven’t had time. For all of you late shoppers, here are 3 holiday gift guides where nothing is over $200. Something for her. Something for him. And something for the baby girl. A smorgasbord of gift ideas if you will. Enjoy!I! FYI…. All of these items can be found on my 2015 Holiday Gift Guide on Pinterest.
Gift guide for her: If you’re trying to keep her on trend, gift her something in Serenity or Rose Quartz. Pantone has officially named these pastel colors the hautest colors to wear next year. This baby pink Rebecca Minkoff Micro Avery Tote is a must have bag that is on trend and under $200. Can’t beat that!!!!!!! Or how about this chic Bebe fedora in blue grey that’s the perfect accessory for the casual chic doll and only $44. Have her think pink from head to toe in Banana Republic while wearing this Mesh Mixed-Knit Sweater paired with a Shirred Drop-Waist Skirt and Aiden D’Orsay Flats. But not everything has to be clothes, sometimes a doll loves a comfy nightshirt inspired by her favorite man like this one in hydrangea at J. Crew or a sexy two-piece set from H&M. If fitness is her thing, she just might like this Fitbit Charge HR or these New Balance or Nike running shoes. If accessories are her things, gift her with a few baubles like these Poinsettia Earrings, Bold Beaded Strands Necklace, Garland Brooch Collar Necklace, Orb Ear Jackets, or Anderson Ear Crawler Set from Baublebar. P.S. This Lavish Alice Collarless Cape Blazer is a must have! And don’t forget that every doll needs a pair of booties so why not gift her with these Cole Haan booties in blue suede or Kristin Cavallari for Chinese Laundry Liam Bootie in Mahogany. Just for the heck of it, here are a few other gift options: a Beaded Kimono from H&M, Chanteuse Jumpsuit from Anthropologie, Portolano Leather Gloves, Flared Skirt or Embroidered Bomber Jacket from Zara, Sephora + Pantone Matte Lipstick in Serenity or Rose Quartz, Eat Cake for Breakfast Watch or Cedar Street Cali from Kate Spade,Needle & Thread Tulle Maxi Skirt, BP Chunky Knit Pom Beanie, Avila Pumps from Banana Republic, or Ivanka Trump Trika Embelled D’Orsay Flats.
Gift guide for him: I hardly ever post anything about fashionable things for him, and its probably because I don’t follow menswear trends. I just know what I like to see B in, and thats what I buy. He’s not too trendy, just your guy’s guy. He’s not into the extremely fitted looks nor is he into a lot of prints. So keep that in mind when shopping this guide. I love shawl collared sweaters like this Shawl-Collared Stripped Cardigan from Old Navy or Fair Isle Shawlneck Sweater from the Gap. If buffalo checks are his thing, try this Lambswool Crewneck from L.L. Bean or Vintage Oxford Shirt from J. Crew. If clothes are hard for you to buy, try to focus on his outerwear. Keep him warm in this Faux Fur Trim Gap Parka and Bickley + Mitchell Glove and Beanie Set. Are shoes his thing? Well doll, we have options! Is he a rugged man? If so, he might like these Bullboxer Thrasos Boot or Expedus Cap Toe Boots. Maybe he’ a trendy sneaker man? So he might like a pair of SWIMS Luca Sneakers or Converse x John Varvatos Chuck Taylors. If you can’t think of anything else, try a nice wallet like this Coach Compact ID Wallet or Salvatore Ferragamo Card Holder. Help him be fashionably on time with this Timex Easy Reader Watch, Ted Baker London Watch, or Armani Exchange Black Steel Watch. Or try any of these dapper finds from Ted Baker London: Playzbo Silk Paisley Bow Tie, Rickle Birdseye Stitch Wool Socks, or Lapel Pin and Pocket Square Set. And if you’re on a budget, try these extremely dapper looks from H&M: Dark Blue Dinner Jacket , Tuxedo Pants, and Wool Hat paired with Suspenders, White Tuxedo Shirt, and Bow Tie and Handkerchief. To compliment the look try a Ted Baker London Smoking Slipper or for a hip look, Suede Sneakers. P.S.S. Splurge a little on these Brooks Brothers Velvet Fleece and Shears Slippers, indulge in some Express goodies like this Trapunto Trim Leather Bomber Jacket, Slim Photographer Twill Jacket, or try a little denim from J. Crew like the 484 Jean in Cheshire Wash or 770 Denim Cabin in Wilkens Wash .
Gift guide for a baby girl: This is P’s first Christmas, and I am so excited. She’s a newbie so I have not gone all crazy, but trust me, next year when she’s one, it will be an entirely different story. Anywho, I’ve been kind of obsessed with getting P dolls that look like her. I was so happy when I saw these gorgeous little dolls from Shades of Me and Cotton Candy Dollies. I also love these monogrammed leggings from Project Nursery. Just like mommy, P is destined to be a Gap kid in a Embellished Graphic Tees, Love Shower Ruffle Top, Quilted Mix Tutu Dress, or Colorblock Snowman Sweater Dress. Her shoe game needs to be on fleek (as all the cool kids say lol) so obviously I love these cute Baby Oxfords or Baby Maryjanes from the Baby Boy Bakery x Zuzii Shoe Collection. And just like mommy, she might like a pair of Uggs so these Bixbees, Jesse Bows, or Erins might find their way in my shopping cart. Or perhaps we could be twinsies and having matching tulle skirts from Bliss Tulles. She also needs to stay warm so she just might need this Ralph Lauren Snowsuit or Mini Boden Hooded Knit Jacket. And my little peacock most definitely needs the perfect hair accessory like these Baby Turbans from Mookiraer, and Zelda Matilda or this pretty Baby Bling Cable Knit Headband. And because she’s daddy little’s girl, I love this 2 Piece Bodysuit and Tutu Set from Carters. I can’t deny how adorable this Mini Boden Pretty Printed Top and Pant is either, and just like mommy, she needs a pair of OshKosh B’gosh Floral Lined Overalls. Although P can’t enjoy it now, I surely do want to get her this Dexton Kids Flower Tee Pee, but instead I’m more likely to get her this Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Chair or Bright Beats Smart Touch Play Space , Little Tikes Little Ocean Explorers 3 in 1 Adventure Course, or ALEX Toys ABC, 123, & First Words Learning Center or Spinning Bees.
