Holiday Gift Guide

Christmas is inching closer and closer. I thought it was time for a run down of some great gifts for yourself and for others this Holiday season.

First is something that I have absolutely fallen in love with. Michael Kors' Very Hollywood Perfume. It smells incredible, very light and sophisticated. The largest size retails for about $85
If you don't want to spend that much money, you could instead purchase the eau de parfum rollerball and lipgloss. These retail for $18 and are perfect to put in your purse while you're on the go. Purchase either of them here: Sephora
  My second item is perfect for coffee/tea/hot chocolate lovers. It's the Keurig which is a single cup drink maker. It's amazing in that it makes your drink perfect every time (in a couple minutes) without having to do any clean up. They can range anywhere from $100 to $200. Purchase: Keurig
For the jewelry lover, I have included the House of Harlow 1960 jewelry line. This jewelry by Nicole Ritchie, is definitely affordable (in terms of jewelry). They have an old world feel with aztec like designs. The first piece I chose is the Triangle necklace. It retails for $80. Purchase: Nordstroms
The next piece is the starburst leather cocktail ring. It retails for $50. Purchase: Bloomingdale's
For the shoe lover, these new Jeffrey Campbell platforms are all the rave. They are called the Lita and retail anywhere from $100 to over $200. They are in such high demand that you'd be lucky to find them anywhere right now. I would suggest checking ebay. 
Another in high demand gift is the Apple iPad. This product starts at $500. Purchase: Apple
For the book and tv lover, I suggest not only watching the Pretty Little Liars season 1 (find on itunes) but also catching up on the book series. The first four books of the series are in a box set for under $20. Purchase: Overstock
For movies, one of the biggest films of the year has just been released. Inception on the blu-ray/dvd combo pack is now available for $18. Purchase: Amazon
For the tv viewer who loves sitcoms, Modern Family season 1 is the perfect gift. Retails for $35. Purchase: Amazon
This next gift idea is a simple weekend bag. Perfect for your winter getaways. It's called the Pendleton Plaid Weekender bag. Retails for roughly $200. Purchase: UrbanOutfitters
The next item is one of my favorite things. I cannot live without the candles by Seda France. The scents are unmatched to any other candle I've ever found. I have a few of these but my absolute favorite is the Japanese Quince Pagoda candle. They retail for about $30. Purchase: Seda France
The next item is a classic. Every girl should have a McQueen item, for his genius in design is unparalleled. These silk scarves have been worn by celebrities for years. They come in a large variety of colors. Retail from $260-$400. Purchase: Alexander McQueen

This is such a cute winter jacket. It's very feminine with the pleating in the back. It's called the Cooperative Fur Collar Lady Coat. Retails for $100 right now! Purchase: UrbanOutfitters
If you are going to Holiday parties but don't want to appear too dressed up, this next gift is for you. The Lily Lattice Dress. It has a very simple front with a more dramatic back. Retails for $58. Nasty Gal

I hope this gift guide has helped you make some great choices in gifts for yourself and others! Don't forget you can buy all your Chickey Designs needs at
