IN PURSUIT OF PRESENTS: THE JET-SETTER

Don’t we all secretly want to be the jet-setter, flitting off from one exotic location to the next? Unless you have a private plane at your disposal (which I most certainly do not, and if you do, do you have room for one more?) the actual getting there part of travel can be decidedly unglamorous.

Here are a few presents she’ll be happy to put to good use on her next getaway. They might not make up for the indignity of walking through security barefoot, but at least she’lll feel a bit more stylish holding on to a leopard print passport holder.

Bon Voyage!

IN PURSUIT OF PRESENTS: THE BOYS

1. Patagonia Classic Retro X Jacket | 2. Sid Mashburn Gingham Shirt | 3. Warby Parker Thatcher Sunglasses | 4. J. Crew Sherpa Lined Hoodie | 5. Smathers and Branson Bill Fish Belt | 6. Tartan Credit Card Holder | 7. J.Crew Cashmere Socks | 8. Vintage Bar Tool Set | 9. Everlane Weekender | 10. Tuckernuck Decanter Set | 11. Keihl’s Moisturizing Facial Fuel | 12. Timex Andros Watch | 13. Sensor Touch Knit Glove | 14. LL Bean Wicked Good Slippers | 15. Sid Mashburn Fox Tie

I have to admit, the first two gift guides in this series (The Decorator and The Accessorator) were a breeze to put together, but I was a little stumped at first when it came to The Boys. Ultimately I turned to my boyfriend for advice who reminded me that for most guys, comfort is king. You also can’t go wrong with the classics.

I’ve personally given at least four of these gifts, and each received rave reviews. My boyfriend particularly loves his Patagonia Classic Retro X jacket and J. Crew Sherpa Lined Hoodie. They’ve become somewhat of a uniform for his morning dog walking duty. Perhaps this year I’ll complete the outfit for him with some sensor touch gloves!

I’m curious, when do you start decking your halls for the holidays; are you a die hard day after Thanksgiving type or do you always wait until December 1? Personally, I try and get my decorations up early so I can enjoy as much time with them as possible before heading home to celebrate with my family. In case (like me) you’re a little bit behind with your holiday decorating this year, here are some pieces I think are just gorgeous.

I’ve been collecting vintage Shiny Brite ornaments for my tree, but fell hard for these glass ornaments from Serena & Lily. They’ll look great mixed in with my vintage pieces and with 25% off and free shipping today who can resist? When it comes to wreaths, I think magnolia leaf wreaths are stunning. They’re a bit pricey, but also don’t scream holiday so you can leave one hanging well into the new year. No time to decorate? Pick up a Nest holiday candle. I promise the scent will instantly make your house feel more cheerful!

P.S check back tomorrow for the start of my gift guide series! I hope you’ll find a few things for the loved ones on your list.
