so, if you’re anything like me, it’s like four days before christmas — and while you had all the best intentions to really plan out super-fun gifts…you didn’t.
elle webb style to the rescue! after all the fun finds i uncovered last year, i have been so excited to present the second-annual official elle webb style holiday gift guide. this year, it just has *much* more of an abbreviated, last-minute focus (busy toddler plus four-months-pregnant will do that to you!).
when putting together the list last year, i shared a bit about my inspiration behind, if you will, “curating” the best in trinkety goodness. and that spirit continues this year, with a roundup of special little somethings that caught my eye.
hit me with your best shot
while hunting for kitschy extras for a recent party, i came across these delights at urban outfitters. remember those cheesy cameras people used to place on their wedding reception tables, that featured pre-printed designs of wedding bells and champagne flutes? enter the modern, more hilarious versions.
i opted for the “unicorns & rainbows” and “yolo-and-other-crazy-phrases” models. i’m dying to see the “after” shots, plus doesn’t taking film to be developed feel so gleefully “old school”?
look good (and feel even better about it!)
some people love shoes. i also am a major shoe-fan, but my real passion is bags. it doesn’t even matter what type. trendy handbags, monogrammed canvas totes, or a myriad of can-this-really-be-this-cute recyclable shopping bags — i’ll take them all. may be time for a support group.
so you can imagine what stood out when browsing the site of new san diego startup vava vida (read more on them here). in spite of my addiction, i can feel good about purchasing the amazing teal dahlia travel bag. made by members of a women’s co-op near new delhi, sporting this arm candy actually helps a fellow female provide for her family. now that’s empowering!
my sweet friend kelly just gifted me with a fabulous velvet manicure kit by ciaté. while i haven’t had a spare second to give it a spin, the minute i saw the box — i was hooked. so perfect for the holidays, and even the busiest mom can warmly welcome a nail-sized dose of glam!
call me, maybe
yes, i know. now it will be in your head for the rest of the day. but doesn’t humming this little tune secretly make you a bit more cheerful?
so will this glittery wristlet / cell phone holder from target. the finishing touch of sparkle for that christmas eve cocktail party or starbucks run before holiday light-seeing.
and while you’re at target, make sure to pick up the elf eye palette. the.best.five.dollars.you’ll.ever.spend. who needs more of a description than that?
happy holidays! may they be merry and bright.
