It’s been a while since I shared any little luxuries, so today, I’m rounding up a few of my favorites that I’ve recently spotted. I can’t say they’d be particularly practical, but how glam and fun would these gold playing cards be on a coffee table? (I was also thinking what a cool art piece they could make!) The Crew is having a big sale on winter items, which includes a few seasonless pieces like this passport cover (I’m dying to take a trip…more on that soon) and embellished baseball hats. Finally, my dry skin battle continues and I’ve been thinking I might have to break out the big guns — or brushes, as it were. I’ve had dry brushing done at spa treatments in the past, and even though I always felt a little like a horse being groomed, it does make your skin undeniably smooth and is supposedly really, really good for your lymphatic system. This cute little set is perfect!
It’s Little Luxuries — holiday style! And with a special focus on stocking stuffers, because they’re one of my favorite parts of the whole holiday gifting tradition. Growing up, my grandmother would always stuff our stockings with lottery tickets and little candies. But every now and again, something really fun and unique would get slipped in too (one year I got a Kriss Kross casette tape. Wait, does that age me?). Inevitably, I’d always forget to “open” my stocking until well after tree presents had been opened and breakfast had been eaten, so it was like the best extra surprise gift ever. Nowadays, I tend to stuff Joe’s with his favorite candies (Haribo gummy bears and wintergreen Tic Tacs…I know, so random), but like my grandmother, will sometimes slip something fun and surprising in too. It’s tough though — I think he’s the hardest person ever to shop for!
All of these items would make great stocking stuffers, Secret Santa gifts, or regular ol’ under-the-tree gifts too. I spent way too much time getting this thing formatted so you can click directly on the image to shop too. Hallelujah! Enjoy it. :)
What types of things do your friends and family exchange in stockings?
SHOP THE POST:
Just a few little things I’ve spotted lately which resulted in an insta-craving…made even worse because of the great price tag!
3. These snakeskin print jeans are something I don’t think I’d ever grab for myself, but when I saw Jessie wearing them at our Access Hollywood shoot, I was sold. They actually look really subtle in person, and are perfect with a solid sweater! (PS, you can check out our feature with Old Navy here.)
4. How wonderfully gorgeous are these pillow shams? They’re the kind of thing I wouldn’t have on my bed all year, but would swap out every now and again for something lush and inspiring. The colors are just so vibrant!
5. It’s always fun to switch up a nail color for a new season. I rarely paint my fingernails (normally just the toes!), but autumn is one time of year where I will don a nail color every now and again. I’m loving the shade of raspberry on this one. Plus, the name doesn’t hurt either!
