best gift ideas

‘Tis the season for holiday shopping. If you’re looking to impress everyone on your list this year, I have carefully curated a selection of the best gift ideas for everyone on your shopping list. I pride myself on being resourceful and sharing solutions I have found with others. As a result, I love collecting fun beauty hacks and sharing insightful gift ideas for the tough ones to shop for. You’re bound to find something for everyone on your list; and while you are at it, don’t forget to treat yourself!

For the beauty and fashion lover on the go:

Winged Eyeliner Stamper: No more winging it! This tool is a game changer, especially because a winged eyeliner look never goes out of style. With this smudge-proof winged eyeliner stamp, you can guarantee a perfect, precise wing every time. Now, wings will be a quick and essential part of your makeup routine and not a daunting task.

Dyson Air Wrap: Goodbye dry bar! I can now achieve salon blow-outs right at home. The winner of the Allure Best of Beauty Award, the Dyson Air Wrap is easily one of the most popular tools within the beauty world right now. This device cuts the styling process in half, and I couldn’t be more impressed!

Lux Unfiltered Tanning: Just because the summer season fades away does not mean our tans should, too. Often, self-tanners come with several disadvantages such as uneven textures, strange odors and blotchy coloring. After sampling pretty much everything on the market, I have found LUX Unfiltered to be one of the cleanest products I’ve tried — it’s non-toxic, vegan, and cruelty-free.

Living Proof Dry Shampoo: Are diamonds really a girl’s best friend? Or is it dry shampoo? Bad hair days have finally seen their wits end. The Living Proof Perfect Hair Day rejuvenates my hair, leaving me feeling fresh and new.

Laniege lip mask: A little truly goes a long way with this lip mask. The formula works to hydrate and soften lips, preventing dryness with key ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil and Vitamin C to name a few. For best results, apply the mask to your lips before bed and then let the formula sink in overnight. Thank me later!

B’Dazzled: B.Dazzled! is one of my go-to online shopping resources, especially for holiday gifts. The owner, Robin (and my dear friend), sells unique clothing, handbags, accessories and gifts from New York to Los Angeles and everywhere in between. From everyday pieces to customized looks, Robin scours the world to find clothing and gifts that her clients won’t see sold everywhere. I love the unique gifts offered from B’Dazzled and anyone on your wishlist will too!

Pink and Blues: Looking for the ultimate gifts for teens and tweens? Look no further than Pink and Blues. Pink and Blues features the hottest fashion trends in contemporary dresses, sportswear and accessories for women, juniors and tween girls. The owner Lisa goes out of her way to provide the best customer service (I’ve even used a drive by pick-up service in a pinch!), which makes it even more special. I can always count on Lisa and her team when I need the perfect gift — and they even gift wrap. Can you say convenient?

Give the gift of a spa day:

Eau Spa Gift Certificate: You can’t go wrong with a spa day near Palm Beach. Recognized by Forbes as a five-star spa, this adult playground is 42,000 square feet and the array of services will leave you in a sheer state of bliss. Whether you ask for pure indulgence, ultimate relaxation or glamorous pampering, the Eau Spa treats you like absolute royalty.

St. Regis Spa Day: At St. Regis Hotels & Resorts around the world, anyone would be delighted to experience revitalizing spa treatments in surroundings that indulge mind, body and spirit. Give the gift of the ultimate day of luxury. Bespoke and discreet, all St. Regis Spa treatments are designed to be individually personalized and tailored to everyone’s needs. My personal favorite location: The Remède Spa at the St. Regis in Aspen!

 For the home body looking for a cozy night in:

Barefoot Dreams Blankets & Throws: We’re all for cozy chic! The blankets and robes are undeniably soft. While they are pricy, they live up to the hype. Their one-of-a-kind fabric is really the best part of this blanket and what makes the price point so worth it. It’s made from 100% polyester microfiber which is a machine washable knit, guaranteeing warmth and softness. With a variety of patterns and colors, anyone on your gift list will appreciate this comfortable gift.

Diptyque candles: Give the gift of all-natural candles. These high-quality candles contain no harmful synthetic fragrance products. The all-natural fragrance in each Diptyque candle not only ensures that the fragrance of each candle stays true, but the natural ingredients ensure that the candle is safe to use. My personal favorite candle scent is the Tubéreuse, which is made in France and has lovely floral notes.

For the techie:

Peel phone case: The perfect phone case does exist! I have always liked a very minimalistic case, and peel makes a nice one. The form-fitting, ultra-thin cases were designed to be the happy medium in phone protection. It protects against scratches, dents and light drops.

Add a pop socket to that case: Pop sockets are extremely convenient for holding the phone, taking photos or watching videos on the go. This gift is practical, useful and always a great conversation starter. If you want a D&Co pop socket, just email us and we will make that happen!

For the foodie:

Board Love Miami: Dessert charcuterie? Count us in! Board Love Miami is turning everyone’s favorite sweet treats into custom candy boards. Their premium gummy candies, which can be customized by color, shape and size are made to be arranged into unique gifts and make for a great display at any holiday party. It’s the perfect “eye candy” centerpiece! Board Love Miami knows how to make your gift extra special – the owner Lisa can even add a special message with candy or add a name or monogram to the board itself.

Eat Me Guilt Free Brownie Subscriptions: The gift that keeps on giving! An Eat Me Guilt Free subscription box that gives exclusive access to a new brownie or blondie flavor every month. The box of 12 is just $30 a month and is the only Eat Me Guilt Free subscription that offers free shipping. With a monthly subscription, baked goods lovers can enjoy a simple and beneficial way to receive automatic shipments of their favorite items, directly to their doorstep. Perks of this subscription include exclusive first tastes on all upcoming products, early access to purchase unreleased products, exclusive promotions and sales, access to Eat Me Guilt Free’s VIP Facebook Group, and anniversary gifts at three and six months, and then every 12 months — the longer the subscription, the better the gifts.

Sweet Guilt by Angelica: Sweet Guilt is a boutique confection bakery that specializes in customized designer cakes, couture inspired cupcakes, French macarons, Glam Cakes in a Jar, unique tarts and themed dessert tables. With plenty of options for holiday dessert assortments, Sweet Guilt is perfect for any lover of sweets! All orders can be customized and they use organic products, local fresh ingredients, natural sweeteners and NO preservatives.

Zola Bakes: A sweet surprise for everyone! Zola Bakes is a women-owned business and its rainbow cookies are traditional in size and sometimes shape, but that’s all that is conventional about them. Bursting with flavor and bright, customizable colors and fillings, you won’t be able to have just one. All cookies are handmade using only the best ingredients to ensure optimal quality. An experience for both the eyes and taste buds, these treats are truly in a class of their own.

Jewelry for her:

Ring Concierge: Men, listen up! From simple studs for the perfect stocking stuffer to bold diamond heirloom pieces, Ring Concierge has something for every budget. Ring Concierge sets itself apart from the chaotic diamond market and offers a one of a kind, personalized options.

Stephanie Gottlieb: At Stephanie Gottlieb, each piece of jewelry is intended to be delicate and sophisticated, with its own punch of personality. Stephanie curates a selection of jewelry and designers based on current industry trends, and her own personal design aesthetic. Stephanie’s signature design, the Slider Bangle, was inspired by her desire to represent significant people and events in her life through her daily jewelry stack. Many of the pieces you will find on her site have a selection of style iterations available to be customized specially to best suit your personal aesthetic. Stephany Gottlieb also offers gift cards. This virtual, e-gift card makes sending gifts easier than ever!
