Mens Holiday Gift Guide with Nordstrom

Hi, Friends!  If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that we are currently in sunny Orlando, Florida on a little family vacay. We flew in Friday morning and spent the entire day on Saturday at Disney World (We got there at 7 am and didn’t leave until 11 pm…seriously LOL) We wanted to surprise the girls with a little early Christmas present by bringing them to Disney World for a few days. Brielle is off of school for her Thanksgiving break so the timing was perfect for a little getaway. Brielle and Brynleigh are at the perfect ages for Disney. They are just in awe of everything and it’s so fun to just see their cute little faces light up all day. We are having such a blast. Yesterday we just hung out at our hotel and relaxed. We’re staying at the JW Marriott Grand Lakes in Orlando and it is GORGEOUS. If you are planning a trip to Disney anytime soon I would definitely recommend staying here! It’s super close to the park and it’s SO nice, plus the pool has a lazy river and the girls are obsessed!

We are heading back to Disney World today but first I wanted to share today’s post with you all! I already shared my picks for my gift guide for HER but today I’m sharing my gift guide for any special guy in your life. Whether it’s your husband, Dad, Brother, or a Boyfriend shopping for the guys in our life can sometimes be tricky. I wanted to share a few things I picked out for Darek this year from Nordstrom as well as a few more of my favorite men’s gift items! When I need to pick a gift or something special out for Darek Nordstrom is always my first stop. It’s the perfect place to shop for him because they carry all of his favorite brands and they have so many accessories, shoes, electronics, and clothes he loves. Everything from high-end pieces to more affordable options.

This cologne has been his favorite for a while now and it’s also MY favorite because it literally smells like a HOT guy. That’s the only way to describe it, LOL. He picked these joggers out a few weeks ago and loves how comfortable they are. I absolutely LOVE athleisure on him and always think he looks so handsome in his casual workout clothes. I bought these slippers for him a few months ago and he lives in them around the house and mentioned several times how comfortable they are! I’ve linked all of these items plus a few more of my favorite men’s gift ideas for this Holiday season below.  Thanks for stopping by, Babes! XO

Holiday Gift Guide (under $100) for Her

Happy Thursday, Babes! Today I’m sharing some gift ideas for the women you love in your life! Even though Thanksgiving is next week, I love to get a jump start on Holiday shopping early so I’m not stressed out at the last minute. I’ve already bought a few gifts from Nordstrom for my Mom and sister I know they will love! Nordstrom has such an amazing selection of gifts for the entire family! If for some reason your loved one needs to exchange or return an item, I love that Nordstrom has an amazing return policy and the best customer service! Whether you’re shopping for your Mom, sister, friend, or daughter these gift options are sure to please! I’ve listed all of my favorite finds below for y’all! The best part is all of these gorgeous gifts are under $100! XO

1. Cozy Pom Throw- How gorgeous is this cozy blanket?! It’s perfect for the Holidays and I love the poms! My Mom is always cold (like mother like daughter) so this will be perfect for her!

2. Knit Beanies- You really can’t go wrong with a cozy beanie!  I love these options here and here!  They are both $26 or under and feel high-end IMO.  I actually bought both of these for myself because I love them so much, LOL.

3. Soft PJs- I have always been a huge fan of pjs and loungewear! My favorite thing to do is to come home and change into my comfy clothes. I love these pj sets as a gift and you can’t beat the price!  I own this set and it’s all I want to wear at home!  The cute Holiday prints make these the perfect gift option.  All of these sets are under $75!

4. Cozy Scarves- These scarves are so cute and cozy! I LOVE to buy scarves as gifts, I’ve been doing this for my Mom and friends for years.  I wore this plaid infinity scarf last week (in the pics above) and I also love this scarf.  Both are only $26!  When you’re buying gifts, sometimes clothing is tricky to buy as a gift because you’re not sure what size is correct but scarves are one size fits all!

5. Beauty Gift Sets- You guys already know I’m a huge beauty product junky and my Mom, sister, and most of my friends are too. This Bobby Brown makeup set is GORGEOUS and includes 8 stunning eyeshadows and blush. This Glamglow mask set is the perfect option for anyone and so luxurious. I’ve been using the original GlamGlow mask for years and it’s amazing. It gets your pores SO clean and leaves my skin glowing.

6. Cozy cardigan- How cute is this cardi?! I own the cream version and it’s so soft and cozy! I love that it comes in several different color options and the fabric is so comfy and stretchy.

A few more Gift Ideas I’m Loving (all under $100)…

“Baby, It’s Cold Outside…”

My Outfit Details:

Happy Monday, Babes! We had a busy weekend around here. Brynleigh had her birthday party with all of her friends and family on Saturday.  We let Brynleigh call a lot of the shots when it came to planning her party (she’s very particular lol) so we had the party at Chuck-E-Cheese, per her request, complete with a kitty cake, balloons and pizza.  She had the best time and was so cute running around and thanking and hugging all of her friends for coming to her party.  It was the sweetest!  She had a non-stop huge smile on her face the entire day and that alone made everything more than worth it.  We could not love that sweet girl more!

Ok- so onto this adorable outfit in today’s post!  It’s officially cold here in the Midwest and the Holidays are right around the corner.  I love this time of year!  I’ve been stocking up on cozy sweaters left and right.  If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that Express is one of my favorite stores to shop for on-trend casual, affordable pieces.  Even better, they’re having an AMAZING 40% off site-wide sale right now.  It’s the perfect time to stock up on new Holiday styles at some amazing prices!  I stopped into Express last week and found this gorgeous blush sweater.  It’s so soft and I love the ruffle details on the sleeves!  With the cold temps, I’m all about layering right now so I paired it with this GORGE blush faux fur hooded vest.  You could also dress this vest up over a dress with booties for a Holiday party!  One of my favorite accessories to add to any outfit in the winter is a hat.  This cute pom beanie is adorable and you can’t beat the price!  It’s the perfect cream color to pair with so many looks.  You’ve seen me style these ripped skinnies before (they are one of my favorite pairs) and they are on major SALE right now!  They are high-waisted, super flattering and have the perfect amount of stretch to them.  They’re so comfy and the perfect medium wash!  If you’ve been looking for a new pair of denim, be sure to check these out while they’re on sale!  XO
