It’s that time of year when blogger gift guides pop up all day every day!
I think they are a lot of fun and I have such a great time assembling my own gift guides for you guys, so today I am sharing the first in a short series of PBF gift guides.
Below you will find some of my favorite fashion and beauty finds.
Nothing is over $100 and I tried to cover various price points. I hope these ideas bring gift-giving inspiration to those of you who are at a loss for what to get your loved ones this year!
This jewelry is so delicate and beautiful and I adore the sweet messages that come along with each piece. The simple necklaces can easily be worn with casual clothes or add a little sparkle to a feminine date night dress. I think this is a great gift for a girlfriend, sister or sister-in-law. My favorites are the horseshoe necklace, guardian angel necklace, mother/daughter heart necklace and the small cross ring.
This bag reminds me of the gorgeous (and much more expensive) Marc Jacobs bag I’ve been eying ever since Janae blogged about it last month. I love that the bag has both a handle and a long strap. More cute satchels: Steve Madden, Kensie
- Vintage Cocktail Ring
Ever since Merri gave me a beautiful vintage cocktail ring as a bridesmaid gift when I was in her wedding, I cannot stop wearing it! The ring adds a little flare to almost any outfit. Check local antique stores for vintage finds near you. (NYC friends, Merri found these rings at the Antique Showplace.) I also found some stunning rings on Etsy by searching “vintage cocktail rings.”
My friend Merri’s mom makes the cutest ear warmer headbands and after she gave me one last year, I fell in love with the look. My girlfriends and I have been trying to get her to open an Etsy shop, but until then, I found a bunch of similar styles to share with you guys. This gray cable knit ear warmer and this braided lilac headband look scozy and feminine at the same time.
- Crossbody Bag
At only $10, this Old Navy crossbody bag is an awesome find! (Plus, you can use the code ONSAVENOW to save an additional 20 percent.) I am all about crossbody bags because they’re both functional and cute.
I’m sure I’m not the only one out there who is in love with slippers! Even living in Florida, I cannot have too many pairs and love sliding into a soft pair of warm slippers at the end of a long day.
Some cute slippers that caught my eye this year:
- Soft Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Slippers
- Michael Kors Sparkly Slippers (available in sliver and gold)
- J.Crew Moccasin Slippers (available in navy and tan… I also found a cheaper version available in lots of colors here)
- BEARPAW Comfy Slippers (available in lots of colors)
If you have a big-time beauty product lover in your life, a Birchbox subscription might be something they would absolutely love! For only $10 a month, Birchbox subscribers receive a selection of beauty samples, from both well-known and emerging brands. The women’s Birchbox contains everything from skincare to makeup samples. You can give someone a three, six or 12 month subscription.
I blogged about my beloved Smashbox primer last year and I stand by the excessive praise I gave this fabulous product. I started using primer two years ago and I cannot believe I went so long without adding it to my makeup routine. Smashbox primer goes on light and makes my makeup last 10,000 times longer. It’s amazing! It’s also pretty expensive, but one bottle lasts me more than a year.
The classic print on this cosmetic case simply called to me! This water-resistant case is oh-so-pretty and is the perfect way to transport your favorite beauty finds!
I finally found a curling iron that seems to work! After years of curling iron frustration, I spoke with a woman at Ulta who encouraged me to buy a curling iron that gets extra hot. She assured me this would make a big difference and help my curls last longer. I walked away with this Hot Tools curling iron and have been using it at least once a week ever since! (And for those who asked, yes, I have been curling my hair differently and I promise to post a hair curling tutorial soon. It’s on my to do list!)
