I never got around to putting together a gift guide this year (I blame it on the baby), but I thought I’d share some of the things I’ve got on my own wish list. If you don’t know me personally, I am pretty much like a child when it comes to gifts — I love giving them and I love getting them. #sorrynotsorry
First up is the L.L.Bean Ultrawarm Coat. I have a similar coat that I got on Ideel several years ago, but I’ve worn it to death and it’s definitely not the same quality as Bean’s. I posted back in September about my love for beautiful coats, but when it’s freezing outside and I’m just going to and from work or running errands, I’m more interested in whatever keeps me the warmest.
I’ve got a couple of Everlane items on my list: the Drape Tank and the French Terry. The tank would be a great layering piece for under my many open cardigans — not too clingy around my post-baby body. And the sweatshirt looks like comfy, but not sloppy. Perfect weekend wear.
My stylist recommended Denman brushes to me as a MUCH MUCH cheaper alternative to a Mason Pearson brush, which I was considering splurging on. She likes the combination nylon/boar bristle versions, so I’m going to give it a shot.
While wandering through Nordstrom recently, I came across the Barefoot Dreams ‘Bamboo Chic’ Drape Front Cardigan. I’m not sure what drew me to it, but I reached out and felt one of the most luxurious fabrics I’ve ever felt. Soft doesn’t really do it justice. This was in the lingerie section near the robes, so it’s intended to be lounge wear, but I think if I get one I might never take it off.
I wear a lot more yellow gold jewelry these days, so I’m in need of a gold-tone watch to go along with it (not that I’m opposed to mixing metals in some cases). This Kate Spade Gramercy watch is big, which I like, without being too heavy.
What are you hoping to see under the tree (or next to the menorah) this year?
