Gift Guide: Gifts I’ve Actually Gotten People

I love browsing gift guides because it’s fun to see what different people curate, but some guides can seem really aspirational. So I wanted to offer a practical yet special gift guide of items I’ve actually gotten for either myself or family, friends, and coworkers.

Check out my skincare and beauty gift guide, or browse gift guides for home and stocking stuffers. These shops offer fast shipping so your gifts can arrive before Christmas. Happy holidays!

    I actually want that Chanel book! I remember seeing it in a boutique and I sent it to my mom. She said she’d get it for me for Christmas. I mentioned it to her a few weeks back and she had no idea what I was talking about. She obviously forgot. Guess I’ll have to buy it myself. Question, how did you get the writing underneath the images from the boutique widget?

      Yeah it’s a totally adorable book – I love the whole series! They’re beautifully illustrated and they feature other female bosses like Amelia Earhart, Maya Angelou, and more. To get the text under the photo, just select “show caption”. Hope that helps!
