2016 Gift Guide: Holiday Plaid
2

Lauren-Nelson-Holiday-Cards-Minted

When it comes to holiday plaid, there are a select few retailers I visit first: Mark and Graham, Tuckernuck, Williams-Sonoma, and Pottery Barn. If my mom taught me anything, it’s that the more plaid – the better. Did you see my roundup of holiday plaid blankets and pillows for your home? So many goodies! From plaid blankets to tartan plaid coffee mugs, your home can never have enough holiday plaid during the holidays!

I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite products you can incorporate into your decor as well as your wardrobe.

My mom’s a teacher so I got her this tartan plaid tote for school.

For the wine snob on your list, I love love love these plaid wine bags!

I personally want either this plaid clutch or this plaid cosmetic case.

I have a plaid Barbour scarf and am obsessed. Also love this option with the monogram.

How cute are these Sperry duck boots?

Last but not least, this plaid mini skirt is perfect for the holidays.

2016 Gift Guide: The Top Beauty Gifts

With Black Friday and Cyber Monday quickly approaching you better believe I’ll be stocking up on some of my favorite beauty gifts! I love gifting skincare or makeup over the holidays because the price points are typically on the lower end, beauty products make for great stocking stuffers, and for the most part – if you stick to a great brand, the person on the receiving end is  always more than pleased when they open a killer new lipstick or eye shadow!

What I love most looking back on my beauty gift guides is that I continue to feature many of the same products year after year. That’s how you know they are good! You can see my 2014 beauty gift guide here and 2015 gift guide right here.

This year I broke out this gift guide by face, eyes, lips, my everyday basics and Caudalie must-haves. It’s no secret that I love and have blogged about the Caudalie brand over and over so I thought the brand deserved their own category. Many of the products included in the collage and under my everyday basics are products I use religiously.

2016 Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers Under $25 Dollars
4

stocking-stuffers-gift-guide-holiday-mantel

If you’re just tuning in, I launched my annual gift guide series last week! Today we’re talking stocking stuffers under $25 dollars. Growing up my mom always had a huge stocking full of little goodies. For whatever reason, I always loved unwrapping little gifts. Stocking stuffers don’t need to be expensive – it’s always the thought that counts!

Who wouldn’t love a little Keihl’s under the tree?

I picked up this plaid holiday mug last year – still use it all of the time, especially during the holidays!

These gold-flecked votive candle holders are CHIC.

Coffee table books are a no brainer stocking stuffer. Take a peek at my book worm gift guides from 2013 and 2014 – many of these Amazon links still work!

And as a FYI, there are a few ways you can shop my favorite products this season.

// 1. Each Gift Guide will include a round up of a select few products I see fit. The “+” sign next to each product is the link that will direct you straight to where you can preview/shop and buy the product. I think it’s much easier then linking at the bottom of the post!

// 2. Because I can’t include every single product in my collages I have also included a scrolling product widget at the bottom of each gift guide. Here you can view more of my favorites that aren’t highlighted in the collage.

// 3. Pinterest, Pinterest, Pinterest! You can shop ALL of my favorite items directly on my Pinterest page! I will have a board that correlates to each one of my gift guides – hopefully making it much easier for you all to shop!

A Holiday Home Tour That Will Make You Want To Decorate Asap

I’ve been a fan of Monika Hibbs for quite some time now. What I love most about her blog and style is that she is truly authentic. This girl has seriously mastered how to decorate for the holidays. No matter what the theme, I think one of the main reasons we keep coming back to Monika Hibbs home each and every holiday season is the neutral color scheme, metallic touches and a hint of whimsey throughout each room. In case you missed it, you can take a peek at Monika’s holiday home tour from last year right here!

Any who, I’m taking in some major inspiration from this holiday home tour for my own apartment this year. As you guys know, this is the first year I’m living a lone and can really go all out for the holidays. I picked up this tree from Home Depot and a few ornaments from Pottery Barn so far. I haven’t had a chance to fully decorate yet so needless to say, this holiday home tour has kicked my butt into gear! I loved how Monika mixed holiday greenery with traditional pieces that doesn’t feel terribly festive but more so, fresh and elegant!

Keep scrolling to take in this beautiful holiday home tour and you can see the entire article on Style At Home. Xo. Lauren
