With the major promotions going on now, I decided to take full advantage of them and get things that have been on my list for a while for each family member… and some for myself.
These five places are where I always keep an eye on, and have been fortunate enough to get things I want the most: Shopbop (top must have is this “it bag”, now 35% off with code BIGEVENT12! Plus their year-round 70% off sales, great place to get all the iconic pieces that rarely go on sale combined with great deals); Saks Fifth Avenue (It’s the place I score high-fashion pieces. Various discounts now plus free shipping/return with code HOLIDAY); Ralph Lauren (you can never go wrong with Ralph Lauren. Extra 25% off and free shipping); Nordstrom (With free shipping and returns every day, it is a reliable place where I don’t need to worry about promotion code and expiration date). J.crew (My favorite affordable brand. 25% off with code COLOR25 both in-store and online. Stores may have deeper discount whereas you have more size options online. Popular pieces sell out quickly).
In my opinion, the best gift is what he or she wants but don’t necessarily need or splurge on. Below are my picks, hope can give you some inspirations. Don’t forget to share with me your gift ideas!
For all the ladies (from left):
Tory Burch bow glove (for grandma who always reserve good things for me, from homemade brownies to vintage silk scarves)
La Mer Crème de la Mer (mom’s favorite!)
Marc by Marc Jacobs classic Q zip around wallet (picked purple for stylish aunt who are also my best friend)
Gorjana Knox necklace (for my sister-in-law; also a great gift for your BBF!)
Tom Ford lip color (for my sister, she always looks great in “true coral”)
For all the “gentlemen” (clockwise from top left):
Ralph Lauren aviator sunglasses (sunglasses could easily get lost or broken, especially for men. Always good to prepare one more pair, let alone this iconic one!)
Dodocase for J.crew Ipad case (for my younger brother. Nowadays you can never go wrong with tech-related stuff for teenage boys)
UGG men’s Ascot leather slippers (for Dad, great for both indoor and outdoor wear)
Trafalgar ‘Cromwell’ belt (for my uncle)
For the “angels” (clockwise from top left):
Forever 21 faux leopard fur vest (I want to have one too!)
J.Crew kids ‘Urbanears™ headphones
Target soccer table lamp
H&M imitation leather sneakers
UGG infant’s Erin bootie (how cute is that! This that-kid-wears-Prada sneaker is also a cool gift idea!)
Iconic fashion pieces that I’d like to keep for myself 🙂
Michael Kors oversized watch (no doubt a timeless piece, since it’s never on sale, this event is a great chance to score)
MICHAEL Michael Kors faux fur snood (I featured here, and completely fell in love with it!)
House of Harlow 1960 station leather necklace (I know I should get it last year…)
