2015 Holiday Gift Guide + Giveaway

holiday-gift-guide-portrait-1Finding The Perfect Present:

With less than two weeks away from Christmas, I wanted to share my holiday gift guide to finding the perfect present this season.  Whether you’re gifting for a fashionista, a foodie, or a zen lover, these are some ideas that top my list and should definitely be contenders on your gifting or wish list this holiday season!

[line]For the Hostess[line]

Diptyque Paris – Feu de Bois Candle $32 / $60
What’s more inviting than a beautiful scent to welcome someone into your home.  You really can’t go wrong with a candle from Diptyque, but the Feu de Bois is a must try!  If you’re in Atlanta, you can find their retail store at the Shops at Buckhead.  We had one of the Signature 34 Collection candles burning at my recent Peachfully Chic Blogger Holiday Soiree and it was heavenly!

Swoozies “Champs Drink Champs” Stemless Champagne Flutes $4.95
Any respectable hostess will have an arsenal of stylish bar cart essentials, like the ones in Swoozies Holiday Guide, including the perfect champagne flutes and matching napkins to be paired with the perfect bottle of bubbly.  It doesn’t hurt when you throw in a sassy saying like “Champs Drink Champs” – now that’s what I call motivation!

Marche de Macarons – Custom Printed Macarons $34 / $64
What might be better than receiving some delicious Macarons right to your door just in time for the party?  I would say receiving custom printed macarons made with love straight from the southern hospitality kitchens of Marche de Macarons in Savannah, GA.

Mu – Coffehouse Cocktails
Delicious signature creamy coffeehouse-inspired wine cocktails in flavors Vanilla Latte, Creamy Coco Cappuccino, Creamy Chocolate Chai, and Creamy Espresso Macchiato make the perfect thing to spice up a party for the season -OR- stock some mini mu’s in the adults stockings this year!


[line]For the Zen Lover[line]

Smart Glass Jewelry – Open Recycled Small Earrings $42
There’s nothing like a great piece of jewelry to finish off an impeccable look, but when that jewelry is made from recyclables, like these glass earrings from Smart Glass Jewelry, you’ll be perfectly set with a great outfit while being environmentally friendly!

Scentsicles – Scented Ornaments $8.99 
One way to really set the mood and really start relaxing is to make sure you’re enjoying great smells. Scentsicles will set the mood for Christmas ten-fold with scents like Pine, Spruce, Fir, Cinnamon, and more!

Oka-B – Peep Toe Wedges $56 / $60 
Besides looking great in a cute pair of peep-toe wedges, being zen means they’re comfortable too.  So these Oka-B peep-toe wedges will be the perfect gift for bringing a flair of style to your comfy feet.


[line]For the Foodie[line]

Trudeau Kitchen –  Star Cookie Cutters $14.99
For those with a sweet tooth, making sure you’ve got fun cookie cutters on hand like these Star shapes from Trudeau will be the perfect gift for baking cookies.  Since Trudeau carries all types of kitchen gadgets, you’ll be all set for any baker, wine lover, chef, or fledgling culinary genius.

Wild Heaven Craft Bees – Emergency Drinking Beer
While beer may be an acquired taste for some, for those who love beer, think about gifting some nice craft beers like the Pils-style Session Ale from Wild Heaven called Emergency Drinking Beer or any of their other Georgian craft brews.

The Sweet Trend Gift Basket $50+
While you can always give a great gift basket anytime of the year, The Sweet Trend can help design something memorable for any personal or corporate holiday gifting making sure to delight both foodies and the “norms” as alike 😉


[line]For the Fashionista[line]

Roberta Roller Rabbit Scarves $50 / $110 / $125 
This all season versatile wardrobe essential is THE perfect gift.  Combine that with the bright designs that Roberta Roller Rabbit brings to the table and you’ve got stylish accessories like the Pom Pom Scarves, and all the other fab home decor, women/men/kids clothing, and a whole lot more!

Rigby & Peller Lingerie $37+
You may recall my in-depth introduction to this British invasion when Rigby & Peller opened in Atlanta earlier this year, and I’m a big fan.  From intimates to bathing suits, Rigby & Peller can pull a look together starting at the base with some seriously great fitting and great looking pieces right from the start.

Vincent Peach Jewelry $43+
Bringing casual elegance to any fashionista with beautiful jewelry they can wear, Vincent Peach jewelry started out of Nashville but offers options online or in boutiques all over the US and abroad.  So no matter where you are, you can gift a beautifully crafted piece of jewelry this holiday season!

Duri Cosmetics – Fingernail polish $5.89
Every glam gal needs her nails on fleek and Duri Cosmetics have the ultimate Nail Polish kits in a slew of colors to match any look or pantone of the day.


[line]For the Workout Maven[line]

Flywheel Pass $28+
When it’s time to stay in shape and have fun, flywheel or flybarre will get you there.  So it’s a natural fit to pass on the gift of fitness with a gift card to one of the cycling or barre classes with Flywheel Sports.

Sweet Scarlett Grapefruit
When you’re working out, it’s a top priority to make sure that your diet complements all the hard work you’re sweating out at the gym.  So helping that workout maven eat healthy might be easier with a sweet little gift basket of Sweet Scarlett Grapefruit.

The Savannah Bee Company Travel Set $14.50
As you may recall, I have a love affair with The Savannah Bee Company (remember they sponsored my Peachfully Chic First Anniversary Brunch and I highlighted them on my 2015 Charleston Weekend Getaway).  So I was thrilled to see that Target will begin carrying their Majesty Travel Set now nationwide!   You can still get the amazing gift kit (I love the Tupelo Honey) on their site which makes the perfect gift  for that post workout shower on the go!


[line]Other Favorites To Consider[line]

Ace Intown Hardware
Most people I would assume (just like me) didn’t know that Ace had some serious gifting options available but they do!   Think about Gift Cards, Yo Socks, or mini Legacy Root Seasonal Candles.

Restaurant Gift Cards
Everyone’s got to eat…. so consider gifting restaurant gift cards to treat them on a great night out like Red Pepper Taqueria or Maya Steaks & Seasfood.

Pampering at the Spa
Sometimes it’s hard to put yourself first when you care about the well being of so many people.   So treat yourself this holiday season for a little pampering at White Spa & Salon or Three thirteen spa.

ArtCrate.Co – Custom Selected Monthly Art
Send the gift that keeps giving, by signing them up for a membership with Art Crate.  You get to provide insight on what your style is, and Art Crate will select art pieces to match and send you a new piece every month!


And to make things EXTRA SWEET…. I’ve got a great giveaway of some of my favorites from above in this 2015 Holiday Gift Guide Prize Pack!
