Day Fifteen of Garden of Glam’s Holiday Gift Guide
Today is the fifteenth and final day of Garden of Glam’s Gift Guide and the special guest is none other than your curator of all things fabulous, me. I hope you have enjoyed the gift guide as much as I have and have been inspired by my incredible guests and their creative, unique, and swoon worthy wish and give lists. The downside to compiling this gift guide is that my wish list has tripled, but on the upside this has been the most stress free shopping season EVER. Not to brag, but I finished all of my Christmas shopping with time to spare, this has literally never happened to me before. But fear not shopping delinquents, there is still time for overnight delivery and of course shopping in a store.
I want to thank all of my wonderful contributors–this absolutely would not have been possible without you!! Thank you thank you thank you and Happy Holidays!!
MY WISH LIST
Polaroid Instant Digital Camera. I am totally obsessed with this camera! It’s time to bring back the polaroid, they are the definition of instant gratification and there is something about polaroids that just makes the pictures better! So amazing! This is on my wish & give list this season and would be perfect for a significant other, sibling, friend, roommate or cousin.
Cole Haan Cassidy Bootie. I have been in search of the perfect black bootie all fall/winter and I have finally found it! They are the perfect height for every day wear and I love that they have a brown heel. They also use Nike Air technology, which I’m assuming means they are the most comfortable shoe to ever exist. These are at the top of my wish list! Perfect for a significant other, sibling, cousin or friend.
Warby Parker Preston Glasses. Warby Parker is such an incredible company! Not only do they have stylish, flattering glasses that are reasonably priced, they also donate a pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair that is sold. I currently wear the Zagg frames and am excited to add Preston into the rotation. This would be a great gift for a glasses wearing friend who likes to mix things up. And don’t worry about finding the perfect frame as a gift, you can also buy gift certificates and they make amazing sunglasses now!
MY GIVE LIST
Kindle from Amazon. This is a practical and thoughtful gift (and also on my wish list). Kindle’s are wonderful, because they are light weight, you can download anything instantly on them, and you can adjust the font size making it a perfect gift for people that have vision problems. I prefer the original kindle to the fire, because there isn’t any back lighting making it easier on the eyes.
Tickets to Book of Mormon on Broadway. My boyfriend is literally the hardest person to shop for in the whole entire world and I normally strike out when I buy him material things so I have moved on to experiences. This year I bought us tickets to see Book of Mormon on Broadway, something that he has been dying to see. Obviously, you don’t have to buy tickets to this show specifically, but check out what’s at the Kennedy Center! I love going to the ballet and try to see Alvin Ailey whenever they are in town, not your thing? What about the symphony or a play?
Smart Wool Socks. These get me through the winter every year. I went to college in Wisconsin and quickly had to learn how to adapt to the subzero winters and these saved me! They come in different thicknesses and lengths and are perfect for boots. I also have a pair of Smart Wool gloves that are to die for! This is a gender neutral gift that you can give to anyone in your life!
