Happy Holidays everyone!

I hope all is well and you are finding yourself in good spirits during this holiday season! It is easy to get swept up in the magic of it all and forget the mundane tasks of life. Unfortunately, this means we sometimes forget or put off doing things such as shopping for presents. As Christmas is around the corner, I thought it would be a good idea to show you my top five picks for any last minute shopping you might have to do!


This first gift idea is extremely affordable and can serve as either a stocking stuffer or a main gift. This is the NYX Simply lip cream set! It comes with three different chubby lipsticks that are super moisturizing and are great for long lasting wear! I personally think that they are great quality lipsticks for a drugstore brand and they make an amazing gift. You can purchase this set online from urban outfitters or from most local superstores, such as Target and Walmart, making it a perfect last minute gift!

The second gift idea is a bit pricier but totally worth it if you’re looking for a nice present for someone dear to you. This is my current favorite pair of shoes… the Zaraย leather slides with a bow! They are so chic and are comfortable plus they’re made of real leather. They are available to purchase both in store or online so you can get them pretty fast (just in time for Christmas)! ๐Ÿ™‚

This next item is a great gift for practically anyone! This is a mini phone tripod! It is such a useful product that can be gifted to both men and women as it’s not gender specific. These tripods can come in a variety of prices but most are very inexpensive. The one pictured below is the Promark Photo Tripod. You can order this online for approx. $10 from target orย purchase it in store ๐Ÿ™‚

The next gift is great for anyone who likes photography or fashion. This is the Kate Spade New York: places to go, people to see book. This is the perfect coffee table book filled with photos of the lifestyle of a Kate Spade girl. The book is sold both online and in various bookstores. The book is so much fun and is guaranteed to make you want to pack a suitcase and see where life takes you.

The final gift is inexpensive, simple, thoughtful and handmade. I received this gift from my sister for my previous birthday and I can honestly say it is one of the best gifts I’ve ever received. ๐Ÿ™‚ Using simple copy and paste or downloading templates, you can design somebody their very own personalized magazine cover! This gift allows you to get your creative juices flowing and show somebody how well you know them. You can laminate the page or frame it like my sister did. All in all, the magazine cover can end up costing little to nothing and is super easy to create making it a great last minute gift. ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope this gift guide helped you and gave you some inspiration for any gifts you may have left to buy ๐Ÿ™‚ However, don’tย stress too much about finding the “perfect gift”. After all, the holidays are not supposed to be about the gifts. They’re about celebrating religious significance in your life and surrounding yourself with those you love.

Enjoy this holiday season and the eve of the new year!

Much love ๐Ÿ™‚
