Today, I am kicking off what will be a week of glorious holiday gift guides! I'm serving up interesting and (mostly) wallet friendly ideas for the fashionista, jetsetter, workaholic, handmade faves, eco-conscious, dapper dude, and chefs in your sure to stay tuned each day!

Magazine Subscriptions - I love magazines. I can't get enough of their glossy goodness. Every time I go home to visit my parents, I beeline it to the couch where my mom keeps her stash....and I sit there until I have read all of them from cover to cover. My faves? Elle, Bazaar, and Nylon!

Hive & Honey Callie Bootie*- Every girl needs a comfortable and casual bootie to traipse around town in from spring to fall. These fit the bill nicely without going insanely over budget.

Elizabeth and James Nile Round White Topaz Stud Earrings* - These silver-plated Elizabeth and James post earrings feature white topaz crystals and a gold-plated surface at the disc details. 

Deborah Lippmann Lacquer in Supermodel*, Billionaire*, Waking Up in Vegas*, and Superstar* - If it's high-fashion manicures you're looking for, then Deborah Lippmann is it. I am smitten with this color are many top editors and celebs.

Alterna Caviar Polishing Serum* & Build It Blowdrying Agent* - Every 'it' girl knows that the perfectly unperfect 'do is a gals best - and free! - accessory. Keep your mane looking healthy, bouncy and and shiny with the help of these luxe hair products. Want a sleek blow out for the party tonight? No prob with this spray. And need I mention why there is a caviar hair serum on this list? Does it get any richer than that? Perhaps if there were diamond shards in there...

Chan Luu Geometric Chain Fringe Necklace* - This gunmetal-plated chain necklace features beaded triangles and chain fringe at the bib. A little bit tribal, a little bit hippie. I have one thing to say about this necklace: RADICAL.

Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System* - My dermatologist swore by the Clarisonic, and if you had seen her glowy, perfect skin, you would have been just as shocked and awed as I was that such a little scrubber could deliver such amazing results. She also said don't accept imitation sets. Luckily Clarisonic made these smaller 'Mia' brushes that are more wallet friendly than its bigger, more robust sister.

Kris Nations Braided Friendship Bracelet*, Chord Bracelet in Green*, Taner Charm Bracelet by Gorjana – Consider yourself cordially invited to the arm party that is gracing the wrists of every stylish lady from here to Timbuktu.

Nikon Compact System Digital Camera* - With all those fab party invitations and Sartorialist-worthy ensembles, the "it" girl needs the power of a DSLR without the chunkiness. Enter the Nikon 1, the lovechild of a point and shoot and DLSR.

J.Crew Wool Hacking Jacket* - Inspired by traditional British riding jackets, this wear-with-everything jacket in a bright reddish hue is perfect for both winter and spring seasons. With its slightly nipped in waist and lean silhouette, it's definitely going to be one of those trusty 'go to' pieces in your closet.
Elizabeth and James Eldridge Sunglasses* - Whether your are avoiding getting papped (seriously, mom...put the camera down) or fighting a killer hangover from last night's soiree, a good pair of sunnies is always necessary to amp up the glam factor.

Parisian Chic: A Style Guide by Ines de la Fressange - Our Netflix instant que is lined up with French films, I have a deep love of macarons, baguettes, and striped tees. I admit it, I am a bit of a Francophile. That is why it makes total sense to take style tips from one of the chicest Parisian women, Ines de la Fressange.
