Tokens to Make Anyone’s Heart Expand

Kora is one of my favorite skincare brands. The ingredients are clean, natural, and I love the price point, too. These are two masks are some of my favorite products, plus they come in a bundle! The perfect gift for a skincare lover.


I love every item of Farmhouse Pottery. I would pair these set of mug with a bag of my favorite coffee beans.


I gave my friend Lori this Agent Nateur youth serum for her birthday and she says it’s the best. She didn’t break out and the smell is heavenly. I can’t wait to try it myself.


This inexpensive styling brush from Revlon is your best bet for fast styling. It’s under $30. Perfect gift for a teen or anyone with long hair.


I think a pair of pajamas makes the perfect gift. More so if they’re soft like Eberjey’s. I own several models and they wash amazingly never losing their softness. They have children’s and men’s, so you can cross off everyone on your list. They have a huge Black Friday sale, by the way.


A cozy throw blanket makes a great gift for anyone on your list. These ones from Anthropologie seem to be warm, soft, and cozy: a perfect trifecta for cold days. There are more high end ones from Jenni Kayne or from Naked Cashmere (both holding a sale right now).


I’ve been struggling with tired and puffy eyes lately so I gave these Jillian Dempsey’s hydrating eye masks a try, and I liked them a lot. I popped them in the fridge for a good half an hour before I use them.


C & The Moon is a cult’s favorite t for a reason. I love the smell and how my skin feels after I use it.


A set of pink coupe glasses makes a good and original gift for a gracious hostess. I love the color, too.

Splurges

You know I am a skincare junkie. I’ve been dying to try Dr. Barbara Sturm’s products, and I was lucky to attend to a master class with her at her L.A. flagship. First of all, Dr. Strum is an amazing human being with amazing energy. I loved all the products, and I couldn’t decide which one was my favorite. I ended up getting a discovery set, and I have to say I’m still with the same dilemma: I love them all! These is a cute Holiday set with her signature serums. Perfect if you’re new to the brand, or if you’re a long-time user, they’re TSA approved to take them on your next vacation.


I love Mackage coats and puffers. I own an olive green ski jacket that gets lots of compliments. I find this black one chic and versatile to use with jeans in the city, at the slopes, for après-ski cocktail. An alternative to the “everyone-has-it” Moncler jacket. Although, don’t get me wrong, I love a Moncler puffer, too.


My daughter Amanda and I have the AirWarp from Dyson on our wishlists. It seems like a dream come true for hairstyling, plus it’s beautifully designed. Rumor has it that it will go on sale on Black Friday. Crossing my fingers.


This houndstooth Chanel wallet on chain (pre-owned) has been on my wishlist for years. When this pattern first came out I looked for it literally all over the world and the sales persons laughed at me. They were sold out instantly. I find it timeless, chic, and to go with everything

I think I’ve never used a pair of boots as much as I’ve used these. I’ve taken these Gianvito Rossi chelsea boots to the snow, day and night, to hikes, on motorcycle rides (I know, don’t ask), everywhere. They’re worth every cent.


A Saatva mattress. Yes, might be odd to include a mattress, but every person that I have recommended it loves it. I already feel like their spokesperson, so why not include the best gift that anyone can give you which is better sleep nights.


My list wouldn’t be a complete one without a Zimmermann dress. I love this silk robe-like dress because you can dress it up or down. It can be used during Fall with nude suede tall boots or with sandals during warmer weather.


I’ve become obsessed with olive green and I love small purses. I find this Loewe bag like a dream come true.


Yeah, yeah, yeah… this is not the first time that you’ve seen this Dr. Dennis Gross LED light mask on my gift guides. It’s just that I really think this one’s the definition of the gift that keeps giving.


I gifted this Breville coffee machine to myself last year, and it makes me smile every morning.

Happy shopping and happy holidays!

Love,
