I have a guest author today! She just turned 21 hours ago and when I asked her what she wanted for her birthday a few weeks ago she rattled off a list of about ten things, and then I asked her to write a blog about it.
It’s amazing how agreeable a daughter can be when she wants something.
Without further adieu…a blog by my #1 girl.
My lovely parents decided that instead of giving me a bucket load of Old Navy fleece pajamas and quarter zips this year, to instead skip the entire ordeal of the “returns and exchanges” line, and to give me money to pick out my own gifts. (THANK YOU, M & D!!) Here are a few ideas that I have been considering for how to spend my money for Christmas and my January 3rd twenty-first birthday… hopefully these will serve as good ideas for all you out there going crazy thinking of Christmas gifts for the 20-somethings in your life!
1. Collarless Asymmetric Tweed Coat | Oasap.com
I initially found this coat on Pinterest and fell in love with it. The color is gorgeous (and so is the black) and who could beat $48!?
2. Large Fractal Beaded Pouch | Anthropologie.com
I have seen this clutch in person and the colors are beautiful. It’s a great price point for a nice gift and is well made and a definite eye-catcher
3. Classic Pave Link Bracelet | JCrew.com
This bracelet adds a tasteful bit of “bling” to any outfit. It is a great size and looks great with anything! I am in love.
4. UGG Ansley Moccasin | Ugg.com
I have been wanting Ugg slippers for the longest time because they’re incredibly soft and are so well made! I love these moccasins because I could maybe get away with running errands in them… Don’t judge. I also love this soft grey color because it would match my room perfectly!
6. Frye “Dorado” Riding Boot | Zappos.com
These would be an ABSOLUTE dream. They are the most well made boots in the world and positively gorgeous. Everyone I know that has them is in love with them and they last forever. This is personally my favorite style, and if I had them, I would wish for it to be winter all year long.
7. D.L. & Co. Candle | DLCompany.com
I have a friend that bought these for herself. They come beautifully wrapped and are the most glamorous candles I have ever seen. As a candle fanatic- this is a must-have.
8. Longchamp “Le Pliage” Large Tote | Nordstrom.comLongchamp bags are so great and perfect for carrying books to class, as a carry-on bag, or even as a purse. I love this color- I think it is called “bronze.”
9. Trish McEvoy no. 9 Perfume | Nordstrom.com
I once received this perfume as a gift and I have been wanting to replace it ever since it ran out. The vanilla and blackberry scent is feminine with a hint of a “musky” scent which I love.
10. Kendra Scott “Danielle” Earrings | KendraScott.com
I actually got my sister a pair of these for Christmas and it was so hard to give them away! They add a pop to any outfit and are so beautiful. They come in so many colors, so I would never be able to decide on one.
