ashleytopia-deactivated20141015 asked: Your baby food post was super helpful! Thanks! I've been meaning to ask you about good first birthday gift ideas for Charlotte. Her birthday is just a little over a month after Christmas so it's not like she NEEDS anything. What are some more thoughtful gift ideas. Like keepsakes or personalized gifts appropriate for a one year old. We are wanting to stay $50 or under since we are giving her a pretty awesome party. Thanks!!! (I think you're the queen of Internet shopping ideas btw!)
Yay! I’m glad you liked that post.
I also love the idea of book gifts—you can make it more special by getting a collection or a special edition. Any collection by Dr. Suess is perfect ($30) and the Little Golden Books are great (Sleepytime, Animal Tales, Classics). All the Richard Scarry books are amazing too.
Have fun and congratulations on one year! xo
cutebutfiery asked: HI Jaclyn! Since you're so good at scouring the web, I thought I'd reach out and see if you can help me out! My fiance and I have gave each other a $200 limit for Christmas gifts. He travels all the time for work and uses this terrible carry-on duffel bag from college each time he goes on a trip. I'd like to find him a nice piece of luggage or travel accessories that also fit his personal style. He's a Creative Director at an ad agency and smitten with all things JCrew. Any thoughts?
Have you checked out Everlane’s $95 weekender? It’s available in several different color combinations and if he’s used to using a duffel, he might like being able to sling it over his shoulder.
A few other options: Lipault Paris’ wheeled carry-on is a nice size and can be carried two ways ($189). Herschel Supply has a J.Crew-like aesthetic and their carry-on luggage is $185. There are some unique options on Fab by Hideo Wakamatsu. This carry-on with two wheels looks awesome…and can be worn as a backpack! It’s $179. If you don’t mind going a bit over budget, the carry-on in white is pretty sleek. It’s $249. LLBean’s Commuter Pullman luggage ($199) is another idea. The great thing about LLBean luggage is that if it rips, has a broken zipper—any sort of damage—they’ll replace it, no questions asked.
ablogisneveragoodidea asked: My mom has "gloves with phone fingers." on her Xmas list. The only ones I'm finding are plain black and not very warm. Any ideas for more interesting/well made options?
Echo is one of the more popular tech glove brands and they have tons of different style and color options. This longer pair is marked down to $36. Their zipper gloves are also $36. I like Lauren Ralph Lauren’s equestrian-inspired tech gloves too ($42). Smartwool’s chunky cable gloves ($45) are available in charcoal and brown. I LOVE Splendid’s cashmere gloves, marked down to $61. C.Wonder has some pretty cashmere gloves too (about $60-$98).
dosesofpms asked: My sister wants a rose gold bracelet for Christmas. Can be costume jewelry and less than $50. Anything decent out there? :)
I love all Gorjana jewelry, so I have to recommend this pretty rose gold infinity bracelet ($50) first. Get an extra 20% off with code EXTRAOFF20. Fossil’s rose gold pave bangle is great too ($48). Have you looked at Yuni Kelley’s bracelets? She has some amazing rose gold stuff and it’s all super affordable.
actuallynotashley asked: Hey Jaclyn. My step-mom has asked for a sweater tunic for Christmas. She said it needs to be long enough to cover her big butt. She prefers it in a cream or ivory color. I have been looking, but can't seem to find the right one. Can you help? Thanks!!!
I have the PERFECT one for you. J.Jill’s cable chenille tunic sweater is available in ivory and is $69, but they’ve discounted all sweaters by 25% today. (Discount reflected in cart.) Another option I thought of off the top of my head is Victoria’s Secret’s A Kiss of Cashmere multi-way tunic (marked down to $59.50).
I hope you like one of these!
