Last Minute Gift Ideas

With a mere six days until Christmas, most people (myself included) are scrambling to find those last minute gifts for your loved ones! I always seem to have great ideas for most of my family and friends, but some seem to stump me year after year. Naturally I put off those “hard to shop for” individuals until almost the last second (I can’t believe I’m admitting that!) and then I am left going store to store with everyone and their mother….and I still end up not sure what to get them! Well, I have teamed up with Sears this year to share some great last minute gifts for the guys and girls in your life! I hope this post will make last minute shopping a little easier for you.

In my mind, girls are almost always easier to shop for than guys. There are so many easy options out there that most girls would really appreciate getting. I have five girls to buy for in my family and although all have different interests and personalities they would still enjoy these things! Scarves are always a great go-to. This year the blanket scarf is oh-so-popular and Sears has a great one that has been sold out everywhere. Another great option is a wrap cardigan. It’s easy enough and can be worn and accessorized a lot of different ways. More gifts include an iPhone case, a coffee mug, nail polish & simple jewelry!
Now guys on the other hand are not so easy to buy for. Not every guy is going to like the same gift. In my family I have four boys to buy for and each one stumps me almost every year. Some like sports, others don’t. Some dress up, others don’t. So, for the guy in your life who has to dress up daily I would suggest a tie, as it is something they will get a lot of wear out of and they will think of you when wearing it! For the guy who likes sports, a jersey or tee from their favorite team is a great gift! I got Brian an authentic jersey of his favorite team and he flipped out!! Other ideas for guys include a wallet, pajamas, nice alcohol (if of age!), & sunglasses.

I hope this post helped you with those hard to shop for people in your life! But remember, it’s not what you get them that matters…it’s spending time surrounded by the ones you love that really matters. It’s more than a gift. It's the joy of the season. #MoreThanAGift

Lady in Red

There'e something about red this time of year, I just can't get enough of it! Anytime I wear red I instantly feel more in the holiday spirit. If I'm not quite sure what to wear to a holiday party....something red it is! Of all things though, I've never had a red jacket. I didn't know what I was missing until I finally got one. This red tweed oversized jacket is perfect in my closet! It goes with so much and adds a nice pop of color to any outfit. This is one of those outfits that would easily work for a holiday party, all in thanks to the red accessories of a jacket and heels! Both are absolutely killer. I almost wasn't going to post these pictures because, well let's be honest, it was freeeeezing cold the day we shot these and my hair was going absolutely crazy in the wind! But I loved the outfit so much I decided to anyways...judge away! :) (oh, and the bloopers are hysterical! lol)
