2020 Holiday Gift Guide

Can you believe we're already in November? The holidays are right around the corner and Black Friday is next week which means many of us are already starting to buy gifts. I'm usually the type of person to leave gift shopping until the last minute but with COVID putting a damper on my actually going to the store, I won't have the luxury of waiting until the last minute. I'm sure delivery services will be backed up more than ever this year so make sure to start your shopping early!

I've rounded up some great gift ideas for him, her, the techy, the jetsetter, the beauty junkie, and more. If you have any other gift ideas you'd like to share let me know!

Gifts for the Beauty Junkie

  • IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream with SPF 50: I just started using this and I can tell you it makes a huge difference from the moment you put it on your skin. Doesn't get oily or crease. I use the shade Fair and mix it with the Drunk Elephant Bronzer. Use the code FREESHIP on the Sephora site for free shipping off of any order until 11/30/20.

  • Damn Girl, Those Lashes & Lips! Set: For the person obsessed with lips and lashes (like me) this little Too Faced set is perfect. The Too Faced Lip Injection is my all-time fave.

  • First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Oil-Control Moisturizer: I've been using this moisturizer for almost a year and my face just keeps getting softer and softer. 10/10 would recommend.

  • Cooluli Mini Fridge: Any serious skincare junkie will want this mini fridge to keep their items cool.

  • Vacuum Blackhead Remover: Yes, this is better than the nose strips we've all been using. You can actually see the dirt coming out of your face.

  • BYREDO Perfume: I love love love the BYREDO scents. I still have samples from a year ago that I use sparingly but Gypsy Water is my favorite scent.

  • + LUX UNFILTERED by Sivan Ayla: Never miss having a beautiful tan again. The gradual self-tanner makes the perfect gift and you can also pair it along with the face drops.

Gifts for the Jetsetter

  • Stoney Clover Lane: Basically anything personalized from Stoney Clover is a hit. I recently visited their Palm Beach store and fell in love with everything!

  • Relavel Travel Makeup Case: This amazon makeup case is famous for its removable dividers so that you can fit your full size or travel size products.

  • JJ Power Travel Packing Cubes: Have I told you how much I love packing cubes? I was able to fit almost two weeks' worth of clothing on a carry-on for a trip to Europe using these.

  • Dagne Dover Landon Carry-All Bag: This bag comes in five different sizes and a bunch of different colors. It includes a crossbody strap and under the shoulder handle as well.

  • Brita Plastic Water Bottle: A great gift for under $25 this water bottle comes with a Brita filter so you can feel safe filling it up from anywhere.

Gifts for Her

  • PrettyGarden Loungewear Set: This is the number 1 best seller on Amazon for loungewear and comes in a bunch of different colors!

  • Abercrombie & Fitch: I know a lot of you are thinking we're not in high school anymore and you don't wear this brand but I'm here to say that they've really leveled up. They are currently offering 40% off the whole store. 100% recommend their jean selection.

  • WeWoreWhat Active Wear: Aside from loving her denim pieces and overall style, Danielle Bernstein's WeWoreWhat Active line is nothing short of fantastic. The material is buttery soft and flattering. Plus she is offering 30% off select items for Black Friday.

  • Deluna x Josi Woven Necklace: While we're on the topic of influencer brands, this Deluna Jewelry collaboration with Josi Pellicano is amaze. Check out this woven necklace that doubles as a mask chain, key chain, and purse chain. So chic!

  • YSL Monogram Zipped Leather Wallet: Who would I be if I didn't have a couple of luxury items on here. Small leather wallets are in and big envelope style wallets are out. This is a perfect size that fits cards, bills, and change. Check out MyTheresa for their selection.

  • Golden Goose Sneakers: Everyone's favorite luxury white sneaker. If you're looking to invest in a high-end sneaker, this is the one. Yes, they are the ones that are $400+ that come scuffed with dirt but they are extremely comfortable, stylish, and will last you a long time.

  • Stephanie Gottlieb Fine Jewelry: I've been following Stephanie for a while now and although some of her pieces are out of my budget I appreciate that there are other pieces available that I can treat myself to this holiday season because it's been a rough year. Treat yo'self too!

Gifts for Him

  • Home Depot: Tools, tools, and more tools. You can never go wrong with getting your man something from their version of Target. If you were wondering, yes they are having a Black Friday sale.

  • Harry's Razor Club: Give the gift of a razor subscription so you never have to hear "I ran out of razors" again!

  • Bartender Kit: Now you can pretend to be Tom Cruise in the movie Cocktail with this fully stocked kit that comes with an organizer.

  • Veja Sneakers: Stylish pair of casual sneakers that look great with a pair of pants. Gone are the days where we see basketball sneakers and jeans as a look.

  • Theragun Mini: Working from home has its downsides like neck and shoulder pain from working in odd spaces that are not ergonomic. The Theragun is a great handy tool to take care of those aches and pains.

Gifts for the Techy

  • UV Smartphone Sanitizer: After constantly touching your phone all day and setting it down on different surfaces you'll 100% want to get this.

  • Baby Yoda Airpod Charging Case: If you haven't been tuning in to the Mandalorian and you have no idea who Baby Yoda is you're missing out. I'm obsessed and you should be too.

  • Dual Wireless Charger: Okay I was really skeptical about this but I recently put it to use while on vacation and it was great not having to deal with 10 different USB wires and chargers.

  • Coffee Mug Warmer: I hate when my coffee gets cold and it usually does because I babysit my drinks. This coffee mug warmer will heat that right back up without having to stick your cup in the microwave.
