Every year I try to think of new, creative gifts to give during the holiday season. Even though there are limited days left to get your shopping done, I wanted to share some of my favorite fashion related gifts to give this year. The good news is you can get these gifts when you’re short on time so if you’re still looking for some gifts to cross off your list this gift guide is for you!
Chanel mascara is my personal must-have mascara I can’t live without. I love giving Chanel mascara as a gift, too because it’s the BEST I’ve ever used and every woman loves a great mascara. A trip to the Chanel store doesn’t hurt 😉 plus the mascara comes in the cutest little Chanel bag to make the gift extra special. For me, gifts are all about the little details like the little Chanel bag. It’s those small details that make the gifts, big or small, feel unique and personal. Chanel mascara is $32.
Unique trend items are a great gift for the holidays. Hats are a total must have for every woman, in my opinion. This season, it’s all about the beret hats and I’m just in love with this faux leather style. The best part is it’s super affordable at just $25.
In the past, I’ve hesitated to purchase sunglasses as gifts. That is, until I came across these insanely versatile Ray-Ban sunglasses! Seriously, I’ve never seen a pair of sunglasses that look so good on everyone. Our whole family (myself, Jason and Katya) have these sunglasses and we all love them. The mirrored lens is super stylish and we all love a pair of sunglasses. These Ray-Bans are $178.
This velvet red perfection from Gucci is my latest obsession! I saw it in person recently and completely fell in love. Most women have a classic black handbag, but this red color is a great alternative but still a really versatile color. The crossbody style is perfect for mom’s on the go, when you need hands free. This luxe perfection is $1,490.
Initial rings and bracelets from Dana Rebecca. Dana Rebecca is always on my list for gift ideas. Anytime I have a gift to purchase, I almost always make a stop at Dana Rebecca. Their designs are timeless and stunning, and initial rings + bracelets are a great way to give a personalized gift. Whether you choose to gift rings, bracelets or both the designs are everyday pieces perfect for any woman’s style. Dana Rebecca currently has a pop-up shop on Walton, perfect to pick up a few gifts.
Portable chargers, I don’t know about you but my phone dies up to 3 times a day. Every time I’m out with friends someone is asking for a charger. Portable chargers are a great gift that’s affordable, and your friends will love you for getting them! Personally, I love this rose gold option because of the gorgeous color. Rose gold charger is $22.49. For extra special gift, you can customize the charger with a logo or saying on VistaPrint.
Jewelry is always a great gift, who doesn’t love jewelry?! I’ve always loved Imperfect Grace, but when I found this ‘mama’ necklace I thought it was perfect to give to mom’s. The mama necklace is available in silver, yellow gold, and white gold and is $700. Imperfect Grace is known for the timeless edge and versatility to their pieces. Another one of my favorite pieces from this brand is this black diamond necklace.
I’ve personally used this palette for years and absolutely love it. It’s a great palette for every woman’s makeup collection because of the neutral colors included, it’s super versatile. If you’re looking for a great gift collection, this is perfect paired with the mascara or portable phone charger mentioned above. Urban Decay palette is $54.
This Is The Order recently launched a few holiday gifts for the season and I’m in love! Candles are always a great gift, anytime I go to a party in someone’s home I love to bring a candle. There are so many candles to chose from but Nicole, from This Is The Order created the most unique candles I’ve seen in a long time. They even come gift ready, packaged in a black box and ribbon. Candles are $35.
Don’t forget to check back, Nicole and I collaborated on a special gift wrapping tutorial we’ll be launching this week!
Card cases are my personal go to and find they make great gifts. They’re a great way to give someone a luxe gift that you’re sure they will use everyday. I’ve fallen in love with this blush color card case by Gucci, it’s a great color variation a bit different than the typical colors. This card case is $250.
Ok, seriously how cute is this sweater! It’s truly the most perfect sweater for the holiday season. I recently added this to my own wardrobe and received so many compliments when I wore it. It’s such a fun sweater to style in different ways, and bound to get anyone in the holiday spirit. Sweater is $75.
My dear friend Ceta from Clark & Stone introduced me to this cell phone grip and stand, and I’m in love! For someone who’s on their phone a lot, this is life changing. You can even customize with a logo or initial for a personal touch. The cell phone grip is $15.
Winter is officially here, and since we all need winter accessories they also make great gifts. I, personally, like to gift unique winter accessories to friends and family. Everyone has the basics, but mittens like these with the ribbon detail add a different twist to a super functional accessory. These convertible mittens are $52.
Mama + Me Outfits from Lola and The Boys. Katya and I love to wear coordinating outfits and it’s such a unique gift idea for a Mother, Daughter duo. The butterfly blazer is such a fun piece on it’s own, but even more fun to match with a mini me. Adult butterfly moto jacket is $68, kid size is $58. I love supporting Chicago based businesses, and if you’re in the Chicago area you can get your Lola and The Boys picks quickly because they’re local.

Rachel Lynn jewelry is one of my latest Chicago designer discoveries and I’m in love with her gorgeous jewelry designs. I love these beaded bracelets, especially with the option to create custom bracelets. These types of bracelets are easy to wear everyday, and great to layer with other pieces which is why they’re so great for gifting. Custom bracelets start at $75.
Recently, at an event I saw my dear friend Michelle using a customized clutch bag and thought it was such a cute gift idea. Customized gifts are always extra special, what’s better than custom? The options are limitless, whether you have the clutch made with kid’s names, last names, or even a blog name. These custom clutches are $255.
Graphic tees are such a fun gift to give. Everyone loves t-shirts, especially when they have unique graphics on them. I found this brand Benya & Zubrik a while back and I love getting their tees as gifts. They are a Ukrainian brand and use play on words and phrases from popular fashion brands for their graphics. I absolutely love this Chavel tee and it’s only around $33, the Humus tee is a close second favorite.
Gifts with a little humor are always a win! I recently stumbled upon this brand Unkosher Market and couldn’t get enough of their funny graphic tees. Not only are they cute, they’ll give a little laugh. They carry quite a few different shirts with various sayings, but personally I love this Matzah Ballin’ tank. Tank is $48.
There are so many parties going on during the holidays, finding unique hostess gifts can sometimes be a challenge. I’m all about personalized gifts, like this monogram bottle stopper. The monogram detail adds a special personal touch to the gift and it’s only $20.
