Loving Right Now ::: Best Gift Ideas for He and She!

It's prime time for gift shopping, with great deals abound. This year introduced some fantastic new gadgets and gizmos to the world, and of course, a few came out just in time for the holiday season.  

Starting with the guys::: 

1::: A great messenger is becoming a vital part of any guy's wardrobe, what with the need to tote tablets, laptops, smartphones, chargers, etc.  Tumi makes some pretty fantastic bags for girls and guys, but this pick would be a great workhorse for your hardworking guy.

2::: What guy couldn't use a new wallet? A great standard billfold option, or a lower profile zip-style "card case" from a really great travel-bag-focused maker.

3::: A Michael Kors waffle knit hoodie (that you might just steal!) that would work great out on the town or lounging around the house. 

4::: Is your guy a gamer? A gaming headset might be just what he's looking for. The Razer Chimaera headset works for both XBOX and PC Gaming (PC requires an additional cable, not included), and has built in surround sound so he can feel like he's really in the middle of that shooting game he's obsessed with.  

5::: For the watch collector, a sleek wooden watch box will display and store his collection beautifully. 

6::: Keeping his feet warm and toasty around the house, how about a manly pair of Ugg Slippers?  

7::: Malin + Goetz created a great line of products that will smell great and keep his skin and hair looking their best. This travel set works great for quick weekends away, and as a test run if he's extra sensitive. 

And what about for your mom, sisters or best girlfriends?

8::: Is she someone who keeps meticulous schedules? Or is she someone like me who would like to get her schedule more organized?  Get her the most beautiful personal organizer I've come across yet. If she's a goal-maker, there are worksheets in the front for setting attainable goals.  The best part is simply how well laid out each day's page is.  The current supply sold out in record time, but you can get a gift certificate (beautifully wrapped for presentation!) for the next round of stock due in January, or preorder one right now for January delivery, if you choose. 

9::: Is she going green with her products? How about a supply of great skincare or haircare from Acure Organics or One Love Organics to smooth out her strands and soften her skin.

10::: If the warm mug she's holding isn't doing enough to keep her hands toasty, these amazing Ugg gloves will definitely do the trick. Seriously, I have a pair in Chestnut, and they're fantastic. Worth every single penny.

11::: For the flat wearer who hates to give them up in winter because of the cold, give her some Keysocks. They are thin enough that your shoes won't feel too snug, but thick enough to keep your feet warm, and they don't show. They are seriously brilliant, and work with nearly every flat (I tried them with ever pair of flats I own, AND my chucks, and with slight adjustments I was able to keep them well under wraps!)

12::: The coziest and cutest PJs of all, from Nick and Nora, now available at Le Tarjay for a killer price.  I have that exact pair, and I love them. 

13::: Chic up her coffee run with a great fashion collab from Starbucks + Alice and Olivia. It appears it's all sold out online, but many local stores still have this mug in stock.  

14::: Jo Malone and Diptique Candles not only smell wonderful and look super-luxe, but when the wax burns out, the glass jar can be reused as the chicest makeup brush or pen cup around.

15::: A professional, yet cheery, case to stow her business cards while she makes her mark on the world. 

16::: For the makeup artîste (or those who wish to be), an incredible set of soft-beyond-words brushes and a set of Beauty Blender Sponges would be just the ticket.
