Special Holiday Gifts for Her

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year,” and if you haven’t started your holiday shopping yet, time is a wasting!  My tree is up, my lights are on, there is holiday music in the background and I’m making my list.  Today, I’m sharing a few of my favorite “holiday gifts for her” and including a special giveaway…a beautiful pair of Layla Grayce earrings.

For the tech-savvy girl – An Alesya Bag.  I had the pleasure of meeting Alesya at a Charleston tweetup just a few years ago.  Since that time, she’s on the second run of her signature luxury bags, which beautifully house a laptop in a gorgeous leather purse.  No one will know it’s your laptop bag unless you choose to tell! With a recent appearance on the Today Show, the bags are going fast.

For the health conscious – Consider gifting a subscription to Goodebox, a monthly service that delivers healthy, sustainable beauty products.  You can gift anywhere from a one to six month service for your recipient.

For the domestic diva – A Hip Hostess apron.  I’m a big fan of their chic aprons, having done a giveaway not too long ago.  With more than a few aprons to choose from, I always reach for my Hip Hostess.

For the fashionista – An embroidered cashmere scarf.  The most coveted fabric on earth, and for good reason.  Red Envelope will do the embroidery for you.

For the expectant mom – I recently discovered EcoMom.com and love that each purchase made on their site helps to feed a hungry family.  At the top of my list are their mama-to-be gift baskets.  Their Buttercup & Jake Deluxe Box is under $50 and comes beautifully packaged.

And now, onto the giveaway!

I love Layla Grayce! Layla Grayce earrings are a personal favorite of mine and always a “go-to” gift for any occasion.  What better time to share my love of their jewelry with you than the holiday season?

I’m delighted to be giving away a pair of their Whispy Ruby Red Flower Circle Gold Earrings to one lucky reader (a value of $48).  Designed with hand-selected gemstones, the earrings feature ruby red chalcedony stones hanging from delicate 14K gold-plated flower pendants.
