Of course we can’t put a price on our furry friends, but I will point out that Americans love them enough to spend $56 billion on them last year. Just let that sink in for a minute. Fifty-six billion dollars. That obscene amount of money pretty much proves that a pet-centric gift is going to be a home run, especially if it teaches the pet to pull its own weight in the household. (Seriously, it’s about time Bacon starts earning money to pay for his food. He gets more Instagram likes than I do!) And, while I didn’t include it here , this inflatable cat unicorn horn is pretty much the best thing ever.
Sometimes I forget that luxury brands have gift ideas for those on a budget and DVF is no different. There are plenty of accessories and handbags that come in under the $200 mark and many of the cutest items come in at under $100. I, for one, would be delighted to find the little travel jewelry box with DVF’s signature lip print under the tree.
As far as I’m concerned, the stocking is the best part of Christmas morning. The teeny wrapped packages! The piles of candy! What’s not to love? I’m guest posting over at La Vie Jaime today to share what I’d love to find in my stocking on Christmas morning. You can also find more stocking selections on Pinterest. I’ll keep adding to this board as I come across fun, affordable ideas.
This “Green Monday” sale (seriously, when did that become a thing?) is too good to not to share. You can take 25% off everything at Kate Spade with code JACKPOT. I’m obsessed with the space-themed new arrivals, a collection full of navy and white (right up my alley). This dress is darling, as is this “Space Cadet” clutch, but my favorite piece is this chic clutch (below). I also have this wallet on my Christmas list in “celeste blue,” which is also available at Nordstrom.
Sometimes it’s nice to take a break from oversize statement pieces and reach for a daintier bauble, like these bracelets from Gerard Yosca’s “The Singular Bracelet” collection. They’re pretty enough to wear on their own, yet versatile for mixing and matching with other pieces. Best of all, the bracelets come in at an incredibly affordable price range of $45 to $80.
Two pieces from Gerard’s recent collections are up for grabs. Enter here!
