I adore the holidays for so many reasons, but I especially love giving gifts to the ones I love. That smile on their faces when you know you've found the perfect items is priceless! But deciding what to buy for others is no easy feat, and to be honest it can be quite the minefield - what, with all of the options, the crowds and the traffic...ugh the traffic!
There is already enough stress this time of year, which is precisely why I've decided to pull together this last minute gift guide for you. It will answer your top 4 "What to get..." questions and make your gift-giving a breeze!
What to get her?
Ladies, let's be honest, who doesn't love a cute accessory? Whether it's a scarf, a clutch, jewelry, or any other item we can use to accessorize an outfit (and is guaranteed to fit), you really can't go wrong here. You could even go as far as to say that women's accessories are the equivalent to the male gadget obsession!
If you're trying to find something useful and exciting to buy a fantastic female in your life, then accessories are the way forward. Check out this gorgeous Henri Bendel hat for the confident fashionista on your list, or this chic and practical "Nice To Meet You" cardholder design by yours truly for the stylish professional ;) The options truly are endless!

What to get him?
While we've already made mention that guys love their gadgets, we suggest letting him pick out exactly what version of the latest tech toy to get himself. Let's face it, fashion is where the men in our lives could really use our expertise!
Again, you can't go wrong with accessories and for men we especially love giving stylish sunnies. Not only will they instantly update your man's look, but they can be worn year-round as well...the gift that keeps on giving!
I personally love these classic Ray-Ban Clubmaster shades, but remember to do a little assessing of your guy's face before heading online to decide which shape will suit him best.
What to get little girls?
Instilling confidence and self-esteem at a young age is key for the little girls in our lives, so why not make your princess look and feel like she's on top of the world with a little fashion?!
I love the mix of super feminine details with elements that are a bit more rugged and tough, and these Ugg boots with their pink soles are the perfect mix of both. You'll have her staying stylishly warm, while also playing it safe for both the girly-girls and sporty-girls in your life.
What to get yourself :)?
In the midst of this season of giving, don't forget about the most important person of all who should be on your list - yourself!! Shopping is undoubtedly exhausting, especially if you're doing it offline, and so you deserve to be pampered.
I personally love a good slipper, especially when it's cold outside, and these shearling pom-pom slides will keep you cozy and chic while you wrap up all the goodies you just purchased. But really I think this is the perfect time to go for that splurge-worthy item you've been eyeing all year ;)
Hopefully this quick guide has you feeling a bit more confident about what gifts to buy your loved ones this season, as well as feeling less guilty about treating yourself at the same time.
