There are two places I’ve gone for my holiday shopping so far. My couch (because I love online shopping in my PJ’s) and Downtown Summerlin. If you’re not from Vegas, DT Summerlin is a local favorite. They have everything! Plus, it’s so spread out that you’re not crammed into sweaty and cranky shoppers. I like to make a day of it! So, I’ve picked out a few of my favorite spots and gift ideas to help you out with your holiday shopping lists.
OIL & VINEGAR – For the entertainer (also pictured above)
If you know someone who loves to host get-togethers… you should definitely think about getting them something from here. They have incredible gift sets, plus tasting clubs that you can cater to allergens and flavor preferences. I personally loved the flavored vinegar and oil wall. You can buy a bottle, fill it up with whatever flavor you like, then bring it back for a refill of the same or something different! I’ve been using the Chardonnay Garlic Grapeseed Oil and love it! The Shmoop and I have been eating it with bread as an appetizer while we cook dinner together.
LEATHER COUTURE BY JESSICA GALINDO – For the accessory lover
This entire store is Instagram worthy! From bracelets and bags to cuffs and carry-on accessories,there really is so much to choose from. I was lucky enough to be gifted a monogrammed leather suitcase tag, which is going on my luggage immediately! Each piece is handcrafted in a process that could take anywhere from a few hours to several days! If you’re looking for a unique gift, check Leather Couture out.
MAKERS & FINDERS COFFEE – For the over-caffeinated friend
OK, so it’s not technically open YET… but it’s coming soon! You no longer have to go all the way downtown to enjoy Makers & Finders Coffee. In fact, if you purchase some coffee beans and a mug, your loved one can enjoy it from anywhere they want! I love the care package idea, which allows people to try it out at home, plus it includes a gift card so they can stop in and try one of their many unique lattes.
VICTORIA’S SECRET – For basically any woman on your list
You really can’t go wrong with Victoria’s Secret. Except if you’re a man buying for a female co-worker. Don’t do that. For everyone else…. Vicki Seek is the place to go. It’s more than just lingerie. They have a great beauty line and their fragrances are crazy good (I still love Amber Romance and probably always will.) Can’t narrow down the options? Get them a gift card instead!
***GIVEAWAY ALERT! I”ll be giving away everything you see here to today’s lucky winner! It’s all part of my 12 Days of Christmas. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below saying what your favorite Victoria’s Secret scent is. For a bonus entry, head to my Instagram page (@thenomisniche)
I was first introduced to Jo Malone London last year, and I’ve been wearing it ever since. There are so many different scents to choose from, so your bound to find something you like. The Jo Malone website even breaks down the options into categories. Another great thing about these fragrances is that they were meant for layering. I like to go to the fragrance combining section of the website, find what combinations they recommend, then go into the store to sniff them out for myself (literally). For instance, my favorite at the moment is Nectarine Blossom & Honey and it goes well with Velvet Rose & Oud Perfume (warmer) as well as Blackberry & Bay Cologne (fresher). Can you tell I’m a little obsessed?
I hope this post has given you a few gift ideas!
