Happy Monday my beautiful friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I had such a great time with my family and disconnecting from all devices, it felt so good to live in the moment and enjoy Aviah's first holiday!
Over the weekend, I did some holiday shopping, taking full advantage of some of the awesome sales that are still going on right now. In times past, sales would mostly be on Black Friday and Cyber Monday (today) and that's it. Now, many stores are extending their sales throughout the week, which is awesome! So, I thought I'd share some of my personal favorites in the categories 'Treat Yo' Self', 'For Her', For Him and 'For Mama-to-be & Baby' this week. This is the first time I'll be sharing a full on gift guide, so I hope you love it!
Let's start off with 'Treat Yo' Self', which are pieces you may need or have been eyeing for a while, and 'For Her.' Before we get started, I just wanted to mention that when I give gifts to my girlfriends and female family members, I like to keep it general with miscellaneous or beauty items. I don't like to gift clothing because it can be hard to get sizings and style preferences right, unless you really know their taste. Plus, when I worked retail, clothing items were one of the most returned. Ladies are less likely to return a cute mug or pair of earrings than a sweater or coat. Accessories, such as scarves, hats, and gloves are also more favored.
Let's get started...
