Hello hello! Wow, it’s almost been an entire week since I made my blog live and I don’t even know how to thank you all of your awesome, kind feedback. I can’t wait to create more and better content for you all, and I hope you’ll stick around for awhile!

I recently shared a photo of some purchases I’ve made for myself in the past few weeks, and decided to throw a blog post together with direct links for easier shopping! Even though we’re only ONE WEEK AWAY from Christmas, a lot of these items can be purchased in-store; so no need to sweat about your goodies not arriving in-time. Literally everything I’m about to share is under $80 and beyond cute. Most of these items would easily fit in a stocking. Or, you could use the Coach bag AS a stocking, and throw the rest of the gifts inside?! I think I’ve just created a new tradition for myself, LOL.

christmas gift ideas, stocking stuffers

  1. The Coach Canteen Crossbody. I just received mine in the mail last week and it’s honestly the cutest little bag ever. It’s actually quite small, but big enough for the essentials — keys, wallet, phone, and a lip gloss. The bag is shaped like a canteen, comes in two different colors and could be worn during any time of the year! I ordered it from the Coach Outlet…typically I’m not drawn to outlets, but was searching on Black Friday and it was so inexpensive and unlike any bag I own, so that I snagged it up!
  2. Boulangerie Sweet Vanilla Cinnamon candle. HEEEEAAAAVVVEEENNNNN in a jar, people. I have one other candle from this same brand and I love their size, as well as the white porcelain jar and gold lid. Perfect holiday scent, but let’s be real…. I’ll likely burn this guy no matter what time of year it is. They had this guy (along with others) in-stock at our local Anthropologie. It’s also ON SALE – $12.60 (originally $18). Go get one for a friend, AND yourself.
  3. Leopard Knotted Headband. Picked this piece up over the weekend, and it’s my first headband purchase of my adulthood. I never thought they looked good on me, but I decided to give it a shot. I feel like leopard print goes with almost everything, and the knot detail adds a little somethin’. According to the website, the leopard print is back-ordered. However, it was in-stock at our local JCrew Factory store last weekend. I found similar ones in-stock here and here.
  4. Green and Red Striped Trouser Socks. I also found these trouser socks at our local JCrew Factory store, and they were 2 pairs for $12. However, online they are only $4!!! What. A. Steal. I love printed trouser socks — they make me smile and these are the right amount of festive without being obnoxious or tacky.
  5. Madewell Threaded Bar Earrings. I’m usually not drawn to dangle earrings, but these were so delicate that I wanted to give them a try. I have yet to wear them, but would be super cute for a holiday party. They’re currently on sale too!
  6. Giorgio Armani Si Travel Spray. A beautiful scent and convenient travel size that can easily be kept in your car or purse! I linked the full size of this spray on my home page under “Beauty Favorites” as well. It’s the kind of scent that makes me feel luxurious while wearing it. And I mean, who wouldn’t want to smell luxurious?? Located on Ulta’s website, but it’s also in-stock at our two local Ulta’s here in town!
