Ultimate Christmas Wish List

Screen Shot 2012-12-07 at 10.47.04 AM

Christmas is quickly approaching (T-18 days!). So this begs the question, “What do you have on your Christmas Wish List?” To me, this season is all about blush tones, soft scarves, and looootttttsssss of bling. I am talking about rhinestones and crystals on everything from bracelets to iPad cases. If you are looking for a stellar Christmas gift for the lady in your life, check out these options.

1. Glittery iPad case: It’s colorful, it’s bright, and your nifty tech gadget will never be out of sight!

2. Metallic jeans: This interesting take on a classic apparel item blends the best of both worlds: the comfort of denim with an eye-catching twist. These would be perfect for New Year’s Eve.

3. Perfume/Cologne: It’s easy, it’s simple. Besides, everyone likes to smell good!Screen Shot 2012-12-07 at 10.33.49 AM

4.  Leg warmers/boot socks: Pull on a pair of these so that they peek out over your boots. Such an easy way to add some interest to a plain outfit.

5. Scarves: these are my favorite Christmas gifts to buy for others because they are affordable, and I have never met anybody who doesn’t like scarves. They can be soft, fuzzy, plaid, or sparkly. Check out your local boutique for these items. Chances are you will find an item that no one else has!

7. Wrap bracelets: Wrap bracelets were this summers hottest trend, and there is no chance that they are going out of style anytime soon. Can’t go wrong with this item.

8. Anything homemade: Truly, it’s the thought that counts. Some of my most treasured gifts have been photos, scrapbooks, and recipe books. Knowing that someone took the time and effort to make you a treasure is almost unbeatable.

9. Good lip balm and lotion: I am not talking about the $2 stuff that you get at Walgreens. I am talking about good quality and highly scented products. My favorite line is Tokyo Milk’s “Dark”. These scents are rich, bold, and earthy. My favorites are their “Salted Caramel” lip balm and “Excess” lotion, that draws out the fragrances of amber resin, oak bark, blood orange, and patchouli. Check out your local boutiques to find exclusive lines of products.

10. Donations on behalf of charities: Christmas is the season of giving. Look into local charities and make a contribution on someone’s behalf. Nothing beats the feeling of helping out a soul in need. My favorites are:

St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital

Smile Train

Salvation Army

Also, don’t forget that your local community will have countless toy drives and “angel” tree opportunities!

Have you been naughty or nice this year? Your Christmas wishes might depend on it!
