Holiday Gift Guide (Day 1)

The Holiday Season has arrived! It is finally December and I can (without judgment) start celebrating, decorating, present shopping and wrapping.  It truly is the most wonderful time of the year! So to make things a little more wonderful for you guys and with the help of some uber fabulous bloggers, fashionistas, chefs & DC stars I present you with Garden of Glam’s Second Annual Holiday Gift Guide.  Each day Garden of Glam will host a different contributor who will share their wish list and give list with me (and you) in an attempt to inspire and ease your holiday shopping.  So sit back and relax and let Garden of Glam act as your compass as you navigate your way through this holiday season.

Day One of Garden of Glam’s Holiday Gift Guide featuring Carlis of Spicy Candy DC

To start off the Holiday Gift Guide I turned to the lovely Carlis Sanchez.  Carlis is half of the dynamic duo that makes up Spicy Candy.  Spicy Candy is absolutely one of my favorite blogs that is endlessly inspiring.  I am beyond obsessed with Carlis’ wish & give lists, which is not surprising because Carlis has an impeccable, adventurous and eclectic sense of style.  She is a girl after my own heart, not to mention she is the best brunch date.

Day Six of Garden of Glam’s Holiday Gift Guide: Jaclyn Mason (owner of Charm)

Jaclyn Mason is the owner of Charm, a fabulous jewelry and accessories boutique in Georgetown.  I collaborated with Charm on a previous post, which was dedicated to Holiday Bling and had the best time playing dress up in their one of a kind pieces.  Charm has such incredible accessories and Jaclyn has absolutely impeccable taste making Charm your one stop shop for all things bling!

As a reminder, I have asked each contributor to share what’s on their wish list and give list this holiday season with the hope of making your holiday shopping a little easier.

BCBG Metallic Retro Headphones.  I can’t resist these headphones.  The spikes and crystals make me feel so edgy–even if I’m not!

These headphones are so glam and are the perfect accessory to any outfit.  It is a thoughtful gift for music lovers, siblings, friends or a significant other.  Check out the more gender neutral alternative here.

Fresh, Rose Face Mask.  We all know the holidays can be a stressful time.  When I want to unwind, I use this face mask.  It brightens my skin and is so relaxing.

I am always in the market for great skin products and recommendations are always appreciated.  This mask is soothing and rejuvenating.  It’s a perfect present for a sister, mother, aunt, friend or roommate.

Tory Burch, Coley Suede and Shearling Slippers.  You can’t go wrong with a shearling slipper.  They’re so comfy, and the sequins logo gives them just enough bling.

These slippers look amazing and like something you could live in all winter!  These would be great for a sister, mom, girlfriend or aunt.  Also, in the same realm of comfort, I literally live in my bathrobes, all of which were incredibly successful Christmas presents. How cozy does this one look?!

Dogeared Stud Earrings.  You can never have too many studs!  I love these because they are so small but can stand on their own.

Jaclyn is right, you can never have too many studs!  I love these studs because they are interesting, simple and affordable!  These earrings would be great for a sibling, friend, roommate, cousin or girlfriend.

Tai Bracelets.  These bracelets are just amazing!  We sell these all year round at the store.  They are great for layering or for wearing on their own.

I don’t know if you have noticed, but I love wearing tons of bracelets and am always in search of bracelets to add to the arm party.  The tai bracelets are so great for layering.  Wonderful gift for a friend, roommate, sister or cousin.

AV Max Teardrop Pendant Necklace.  I rarely give small necklaces as gifts, but these are an exception.  The stones are so beautiful, and each one is a little different, so you feel like you’re giving something that is one of a kind.

These pendants are so beautiful!  I normally where super chunky oversized everything, but I am very into simple delicate necklaces right now.  This would be perfect for a girlfriend, sister or friend.
