The holidays are coming up fast and the days are dwindling down. I feel like I haven’t even had time to digest my thanksgiving dinner, but here we are! December 9th, and only a couple weeks left to get all our gifts situated. So how about we help you out. Whether it is a little something extra, a last minute gift, super awesome stocking stuffer, or even a little something for yourself :
WE GOT YA COVERED!
Got a special lady, or a sister? Girls, got a best friend whose stuff you borrow on the daily?
Well we’ve gathered some our favorite little items for you (and even some awesome ones I feel get overlooked) :
1.Spirit Hoods Snow Leopard Full Hood: Spirit Hoods have gotten so popular over the last year. Celebrities from Bruno Mars, to Ke$ha, to notorious Khloe Kardashian to even Snoop Dogg have been spotted prowling in one of these babies. Soft, warm and a portion of the proceeds goes to a good cause. The best part is that they are versatile throughout all four seasons (I mean, they are made in Los Angeles guys!)
2.San Diego Hat Co. Knit Utility Cowl Scarf in Yellow: Maybe I’m just biased because A. I love the cold and B. It’s yellow, but the cowl scarf is one of my favorite winter accessories. It’s big enough to cover your shoulders and keep your neck warm. TIP: pull the back over your head to cover your ears. Bingo! Three in one. Perfect.
3.Obey Women’s Horizon Beaded Belt: The Navajo trend has been exploding everywhere. It’s gone from blankets to purses to tees and dresses to even shoes. I’d be covered head to toe. But maybe some of you aren’t ready for that. The Obey Horizon Belt is a perfect little piece of that trend. I can see it thrown over a denim shirt-dress or even just paired with some cut off shorts and a basic tee. Effortless. Best part: it’s beaded
4. Women’s’ Sunglasses: It doesn’t matter if it’s summer or winter, your eyes should always be 100% protected. Did you know you can still get a tan (or worse, BURN!) on an overcast day? Did you know that snow is reflective? Do yourself, or a loved one, a favor and protect those peepers.
5.Cheap Monday Kat Panties & Liv Bra in Skin: So this might be a little more on the intimate side of gift giving, but I feel like it’s just too cute to pass up. Not too sexy with just the right amount of lace and the perfect shade of soft pink. I could never have too much underwear. And throw in the bra to match? Hallelujah!
6.Vans Women’s Sophie Saddle Shoes: This Vans shoe is a take on the original they made a season before (minus the tan). I actually enjoy the tan. This style has been seen the last couple of fall seasons, and it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere. Paired with a cute dress or even a flannel and skinnies, these shoes are killer.
7.Flud Opposition Watch in Teal / Seafoam Green: Flud Watches have a variety of styles and colors. The Turntable and Boombox watches have been a huge hit, but this one really catches my eye. Not too flashy, and a pretty teal color. I know this would go with most any outfit I own.
8.Glitterlimes Minty Earrings & Glam Naturale Vintage Key Necklace: These Glitterlime earrings are the perfect festive accessory. They are made from real candy! Don’t fret; these candies are encased in water-resistant, glittery resin. Throw a little holiday cheer onto that little black dress number you have going on. Or do what I do and pair these with the ugliest Christmas sweater ever. So festive!
9.Knitwits Delux Kitten/Cat Ears Pilot Animal Hat in White: Delux is the hat company with all the crazy, cute animal knit hats. I love them, but I don’t think I would be as cute as some of you younger folk in a knit hat with a penguin or monkey face on it. Luckily, Delux has also made this hat; sans face. This pilot hat is fleece lined which makes it extra warm and is detailed only with little kitty ears. There’s even one in black. PUUUUUURRRRRFECT! (Sorry, had to.)
10.Women’s Iron Fist Wallets: Iron Fist has been on fire (I love my Zombie Stompers). They are constantly coming up with the cutest designs to adorn their clothing and shoes. And their wallets and bags are no exception. What makes it better is that there is almost always a matching wallet and/or bag for all you coordinated people. I like to keep mine mismatched and crazy. P.s. We also carry the zombie stomper wallet if you dig that print as much as I do.
11.Delux Cable Knit Mittens in Plum: I go through gloves like no one’s business. And I’m 100% guilty of buying cute gloves over functional gloves. Problem solved! Just like their hats, these are warm & fleece lined. Cute AND functional. I win.
12.Neff Kelly Beanie in Gold: OOHH! Mustard yellow! How I love thee! Cable knit, mustard yellow and pom pom. No brainer. (Pair this hat with those plum colored mittens. Heaven.)
13.Bluebell Flower Headband: Around the office, I think I’m known for my accessories (among many things). I’m a huge fan of jewelry; rings, necklaces stacked on necklaces, earrings. I love it all. That includes hair accessories. I’m a HUGE fan of a turban, especially on a bad hair day. If a turban is a little too much for you, opt for this femme flower head band. Imagine loose curls or even a sleek up do.
14.Pan Am Mini Explorer Bag: Pan Am (the show) made it’s debuted back in September, and these little vintage inspired pieces have been going like crazy. Planning a trip soon? Pick one of these up and be as fashionable up in the clouds as you are down on the ground.
15.Neuvo Digital Watch in Brushed Bronze: I’m a blog junkie and I prowl and creep for the latest and greatest. Something I’ve been noticing and can’t get enough of is men inspired pieces in an overall femme outfit. Blazers, creepers, brogues. Give me them all! I’m head over heels for this Neuvo watch. It looks a little like something I’d find in my dad’s accessories. I love it. Think of “the boyfriend shirt” in accessory form. My favorite part is the slight pink hue the bronze has.
16.Chelsea Crew Jenny Oxford Shoe in Black & Beige: Most girls can’t get enough shoes. I own more shoes than I care to admit. The loafer/brogue style is so in. So what could be better? Slap a heel on it! Ta da!
17.Betsey Johnson Tease Suede Leather Pump in Blush: I’ve had my eye on these since they came in. There is something so sexy and classy about this shoe. And the blush color just gets to me. I’m pretty sure I can find an excuse to own these
18.Palladium Women’s Tactical Boot in Brown & Olive: Palladium makes great boots. This pair is one of my favorites; everything from the style to the color. It’s made of a nylon upper with a gorgeous leather trim. Made with a moisture-wicking plaid print lining, it’ll keep your toes warm and dry. Remember how I said looks good and functional?
I really dig men’s fashion. Either making outfits for someone or just a little men’s fashion for myself (Neuvo watch!!). I actually get quite jealous when the men’s fashion comes in. You guys just get some of the best stuff.
1.Palladium Men’s Pilot Baggy Leather Boot : Palladium boots are so great. Like I said, they look great and are functional. Not just a fashion boot. The Australian Wool lining wicks away or retains moisture to keep your feet comfy. Keep them folded down, or lace them all the way up.
2.Flud Zip Wallet in Black: Flud has expanding from watches to other accessories. This wallet is such a good color blocking combo and is equipt with a full zipper around to keep your valuables safe inside.
3.Obey Bradley ID Holder in Brown: Maybe you don’t like the bulk of an ordinary wallet (or the bulk a wallet makes in your back pocket). This ID holder is perfect in size and has enough compartments for all those little extras.
4.Cotton Treats Bow Tie in Liam & Nathaniel: I’ve been drooling over the bow tie trend since my boss showed them to me. I’m dying to get my hands on one of these little treats (heh, get it?). Pair with a contrasting color or pattern button up, sweet cardigan, and a pair of brogues or loafers. Throw on suspenders if you’re feeling a little daring.
5.Toddland Worst Gift Socks & Underwear Set – White/ Green : Know that one person who just can’t get enough of practical jokes? Well the jokes on you, buddy. You’ll probably be getting Toddland’s Worst Gift Set. Better than coal cause really, who doesn’t need more socks and underwear?
6.Toddland Men’s Grizzly Bear Boxer Briefs: I give props to Toddland designers for always being funny, playful and quirky. What other underwear can you say that about? (Don’t answer that.) We’ve got a good selection of their boxer briefs. Check out the cheeseburger ones. I don’t want to admit they make me hungry when I see them.
7.Publish Hacienda Belt in Brown: I’ve seen my fair share of studded belts growing up. But Publish has found a way to make the studded belt a little classier. Maybe it’s the color, or just the overall way it’s crafted. It’s made of genuine leather detailed with 3 rows of miniature brass studs.
8.Obey Blanket Beanie in Charcoal: As the cold approaches, keep your head warm. Snag one of these and while you’re at it, snag their matching gloves. The special guy not into the stripes? Obey also makes solid color beanies.
9.Brixton Carby Beanie in Brown & Mustard: Mustard yellow for the fellow! Cuff it up, or let it slouch. How about you buy the mustard yellow NEFF beanie for yourself? Matching couples: Too much?
10.Rothco Shemagh Desert Scarf in Tan: These scarves have been a hit over the last couple of years. I own one myself and I think they are a perfect transition scarf from winter to spring. Warm for the winter, but breathable if it gets warmer out.
11.Proof Bird Bamboo Wooden Sunglasses: Our wooden accessories are a big hit. Flud and WeWood watches are so rad, so why don’t you pair them with these wooden sunglasses.
12.Ray-Ban Clubmaster Sunglasses: Ray Ban has been a big name for a while. And the Clubmaster are an original classic. This is definitely one of those accessories you could borrow from your fellow.
13.NYC Subway Map Mighty Wallet: New York: The city that never sleeps. I wish I lived in New York. It’s by far one of my favorite cities. Can’t live there? Give a little keepsake with this Subway map wallet. Constructed of Tyvek, this wallet is tear-resistant, water-resistant and expandable. The Tyvek is folded origami style to create an incredibly tough and versatile wallet. I <3 New York.
14.Generic Surplus Suede Dury Shoe in Teak: Sneakers and boots aside, I feel every man should own a great pair of shoes. The perfect shade of brown, they are so simple, clean and classy. These shoes are just another example of men having an amazing wardrobe piece.
15.WeWOOD Date Watch in Army Green: WeWOOD watches are a great conversation piece. Pair one of these with Proof Wooden Sunglasses for the ultimate combo. And your guy will be thanking you for making him a little more coordinated.
16.Neuvo Digital Watch in Brushed Gold: Back to the Neuvo. But this time in gold. Such a perfect piece for any outfit. If your guy is a little less flashy, opt for the silver or the sleek black. Or go my route and get them all. Too sweet to pass up.
17.Richer Poorer Walk On Socks in Red and Navy & Yellow: Even the men in business suits have been sneaking in a little crazy fashion here and there. Through my blog prowling, I’ve noticed a lot of patterned socks making an appearance under those boring, old, black slacks. And if your fellow isn’t the wall street type, maybe those socks will accentuate his favorite graphic tee.
18.Herschel Supply Co. Little America Backpack in Black: Herschel is a perfect look at the Americana trend that blossomed not too long ago. These are great bags for the out door man. This particular style is my favorite and a best seller.
19.Altamont Sniper Gloves: Shoot, I’ll probably get these for myself. I love these gloves. They have the perfect little Fair Isle pattern that’s coming into trend. They even have matching socks!
20.Brixton Cutter Fingerless Gloves in Heather Grey: Does your guy have a Smartphone? Is he more attached to that thing than you are to oh say, your shoes? Help him out a little with Brixton’s fingerless gloves. They are even detailed with a contrasting leather palm.
I may need to do a mini shopping spree for my loved ones (and myself) after this.
I hope some of our favorites are yours! And I hope I helped some of you in that last minute, perfect stocking stuffer, gift giving dilemma.
I love seeing what you guys give/get from us for the Holidays. Feel free to post photos on our Facebook page!
Happy shopping! And Happy Holidays!
