It is officially the holiday season, dearest readers! Seamless & Savvy couldn’t be more excited to celebrate with Mariah Carey Christmas tunes and the Hallmark Countdown to Christmas movies. With black friday and cyber monday behind us… it’s only right to think of the little gifts and stocking stuffers for you and what you think your friends and family would enjoy.
This year for the first time my family is doing a “secret santa” between our cousins. And as my personality would have it, of course I coordinated it, and found out who is my secret santa… (Hi Dan!). So let’s be real, I know he’s going to read this so maybe a few things you’ll read below are a total hints strictly for him… but around $30 is our budget, I think 😉 Each year, gift giving seems to be the best part of christmas- a thoughtful gift for a close friend, coworker, or family member truly can put you in the spirit. So, I will try to keep the prices at an easy, affordable gift giving option with a few splurges. Come along and get into the holiday spirit with me!
Warning: some of the below items are total holiday party must haves to be known as the greatest gift giver. Make sure to give Seamless & Savvy a shoutout on instagram (@seamless_savvy) if you purchase any of the below, I can’t wait to see!!
Invisibobble ‘Original’ Hair Tie (Set of 3)
Funny this is the first… I bought these at Sephora when my gal pal Emily had 20% off. After reading so much about them I had to have them. And of course, I. Am. Obsessed. They are great! They give a pony tail volume, and leave no marks in your hair when you put it up. Seriously they leave no marks. When I was out of town and my sister was home, she stole one from me and there was no way I was getting that back. Really we’re all hooked. They come in so many colors and you can never have too many. I stick to the clear color option because there’s no need to pay attention to my hair if it is up in a ponytail… LOL!
Yeti Tumbler 30oz Rambler
If you haven’t heard about the cooler brand, Yeti, you really should look into it. My dad is obsessed and he bought me the limited edition pink tumbler and I have gotten SO many comments on this whenever I use it, which is everyday. I prefer my cold drinks in these as the ice cubes are put in at 8AM and they’ll be there at 6PM once I get home. Yeti has a stew price tag on their coolers/ accessories, but the technology they use to make their insulated cups and coolers work is very high tech and worth it. My dad actually tested the cooler and left ice in it for a week. When he went back, yes, there was STILL ice in it. This is a no brainer for a cute stocking stuffer!
Chambong Set of 2 Curved Champagne Glasses
If this doesn’t scream holiday party essential, or holiday FUN, I don’t really know what does… take it to the next level with these glasses and I promise you’ll have a good time. What more do you need? Add a little bit of champs and you are good to GO!
Bose SoundSport In-Ear Bluetooth Headphones
This is a bigger stocking stuffer, money wise, but at least it can fit in there! I am totally the only one at the gym who still has a cord attached to their cell phone all the way to their ears. Getting caught in my arms, dropping my phone… the whole deal- I think it is time to invest in some bluetooth earbuds. Bose has impeccable brand awareness that keeps their business just right and people coming back. I am a big fan of their bluetooth speaker, so I know these are the ones I would purchase for ear buds.
Sugarfina Champagne Bears Cocktail Kit
The champagne gummies and rose gummies are super trendy, and the well known brand that makes them prepared a kit for you! How cute is this? All you need to do is add the champagne and go! This would be perfect for a NYE party, huh?
Kate Spade New York Taxi Mittens
I mean, who even calls a taxi anymore? LOL if you’re spending your holidays in NYC- these gloves are for you! They’ve been a Kate Spade favorite of mine for a while now, and they’re a classic little statement piece to have each winter. The perfect amount of detail for your chilly little hands! These mittens also come in other prints and styles. So if you aren’t in NYC or any other city for the holidays, check out what else they have! Although, Kate Spade anything really would be a win in my christmas book.
Polaroid Zip Mobile Photo Printer
For all of those selfies and memories you’ll be making this holiday season… this is just one of many little gadgets for mini photos. This allows you to print out the pictures on your phone in minutes! All your gal pals will be so happy with you, guaranteed you’ll be the hit of the party with this, you’ll need to buy some extra film for sure!
Rodan + Fields Lash Boost
So, I just bought this… With all of the reviews and talk around town and the office, I cannot wait to give this a whirl. I have very short eyelashes and when I had on fake ones for the #foreveryflynn wedding, I’ve been so obsessed with having longer, fuller lashes. They’ll be a Seamless & Savvy post coming on this in the next 8 weeks… perfect larger stocking stuffer for, well, myself? LOL!
L.L. Bean Wicked Good Moccasins
Literally my most favorite comfy item I own, if you don’t already, I highly suggest you invest in one of these. I have tried the Ugg moccasins and these are just that much more fluffier and comfier. Plus L.L.Bean has a lifetime warranty so, an investment totally worth it.
Mark and Graham Universal Travel Cosmetic Case
Okay so Mark and Graham, a Williams – Sabina, Inc brand, have some amazing gifts and usually they have some good deals. This travel cosmetic case is such a cute gift for someone who travels constantly or just could use an adorable and functional accessory. Added bonus-You can monogram the majority of things on their site. Hello? So trendy! The site has its own gift guide and separated by price starting at 30$ and under so it’s perfect for every price range. And as if the added monogram bonus wasn’t enough, they have the most adorable free gift wrapping! One less gift I have to wrap? Sign me up!!
