Who’s afraid of a little sparkle? Certainly not you. Even if the rest of the year is spent being dutiful and practical and, you know, adulting, as everyone’s calling it, this is the season for sparkle and for fancy shoes and for a little bit of holiday magic. And while your busy devising new shenanigans for the dreaded Elf on the Shelf and filling the stockings of all the littles (and not-so-littles) in your life, don’t forget to pick up a little something glamorous for yourself.
Of course, I’m here to help… with a roundup of some of the best ways to spoil yourself this season. From a miraculous hair tamer to a personalized purse, you’ll find the prettiest, poshest and most pampering gifts available, right here.
(As always, just click on the product picture to shop!)
1. Sleek Straightener
On bad hair days, my locks look just like the before in this picture, but the ceramic plates on this magic hair straightening wand quickly eliminate frizz and fluff.
2. Personalized Purse
Take your favorite Kate Spade purse, and customize it to your heart’s content. Add a customized strap, tassels, stamps and even your name in gold letters. So fun!
3. Colorful Kicks
These scrumptious suede tasseled loafers from J. Crew are just the boost your cool-weather wardrobe needs. They add a little oomph to all your tired winter neutrals.
4. Fun and Faux
Fluffy and fabulous, this coat offers instant snuggly style at a price that won’t break the bank. Especially with the extra discount (see caption for details).
5. Sharp Shades
I used to wear oversized sunglasses for the glamour, and, while that’s still part of it. I also love their ability to hide dark circles and other signs of sleep deprivation.
6. Rollon Wonder
You may not know this about me, but I have a little thing for facial oils. They are just so luxurious to use, and I love the glow they give my skin. Orchid Youth Preserving Facial Oil from Herbivore Botanicals smells amazing, and the handy, portable roller makes application fun and neat!
7. Fancy Feet
Velvet shoes are a pretty, quick update, since it’s possibly the hottest shoe trend of the moment. These on-trend booties from Steve Madden check all the right boxes: an updated, slightly higher ankle, jewel-toned velvet and a great price.
8. Sensitive Scent
This handmade, sandalwood-and-cardamom based rollerball scent uses a base of safflower oil and no alcohol, making it great for those who are sensitive skin.
9. Happy Dress
I love Shabby Apple, and if you haven’t discovered this online treasure of a site, this is a great time to check it out. Use code HAPPYDRESS and you’ll get a free happy dress (choose from a selection of cute, comfy knit dresses) with the purchase of any dress or skirt. I’d choose this timeless-yet-not-boring black and white sheath.
10. Organic Beauty
I’m already obsessed with Juice Beauty’s Ylang Ylang Spa Lotion and Spa Wash, so I can’t wait to check out some of the line’s other products. The luxury organic beauty brand is offering 30% off its bestsellers. The Flawless Serum Foundation and Luminous Lip Crayon are on my must-try list. Hurry, though, because this offer is for Black Friday only!
I hope you enjoyed this roundup of some of my favorite spoil-yourself gift ideas. I’ll be sharing more gifts for everyone on your list over the next week!
