This is the neatest gift for a book-lover. It’s a set of notecards that are reproductions of Library of Congress’ card catalog placeholders for classic books. It’s just $20 from Modcloth.

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. 

Here are two posts I’ve done with ideas for gifts for one year olds: 1, 2

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! 

I’m really fascinated by the activewear industry. Where there used to be one or two luxury brands and the standard athletic labels (Nike, Adidas, etc.), now there are tons of new competitors. This is good news—I think Lululemon has had the corner on the higher-end activewear market for way too long. And frankly, I’m tired of the scarcity model. If you need a running shirt, you shouldn’t have to worry that you won’t be able to find it in your size because the company is making fewer pieces than demand requires. Now you can pick up high-quality technical pieces at Target while you buy your shampoo…or you can join several of the online monthly fitness clubs that have popped up and get great activewear at an affordable price. Retailers like Gap and Express offer promo codes so often that you can pick up their stuff at heavily discounted prices at least once a week. I tried to find a good mix of price points and brands and included a few accessories too—they’re easier to buy for someone else than clothes! 
GapFit Breathe Long Sleeve Tee, $30 (1) - These are rapidly becoming a word-of-mouth must-have basic and although I don’t own this shirt yet, it’s on my list. 
Under Armour Cozy Neck Shimmer, $60 (2) - Under Armour is looking to compete with Lululemon and has been designing some really great stuff this past year. 
Fabletics “Capable”, $50 for VIP members (3) - I’ve been writing about Fabletics a lot lately, but I am SUPER impressed. The quality seems a touch better than Ellie and the newer designs—like this outfit—are really nice. I just ordered this. 
Sweaty Bands Head Wrap, $15 (4) - So many people swear by these! Good stocking stuffer.
Cory Vines Essential Long Sleeve Tee, $35 (5) - Cory Vines is a new-ish fitness store modeled similarly to Everlane. They don’t have a lot of product options, but the stuff they do have looks nice—and is priced just right. 
Nordstrom Beyond Yoga Shawl Collar Jacket, $176 (6) - Love the shawl collar! 
GapFit Distance Leggings, $65 (7) - This color is fun and I like the ankle zippers.

Fitbit Flex, $99 (15) - Fitness trackers are a big gift this season. There are several different options, so do your homework, but I know a lot of friends that have Fitbit and like it. 
Contigo AUTOSEAL 24-Ounce Water Bottle, $10.29 (16) - My favorite water bottle. I drink twice as much (at least) throughout the day when I keep this handy. 
Active Apparel Tank Top, $27 (17) - HA! 
Nike Air Max 2014 Running Shoe, $180 (18) - These new Nikes are pretty.

Athleta Tranquility Cowl Neck, $89 (20) - Perfect post-workout layer. 


Lululemon Cool Racerback in Slalom Stripe, $42 (21) - Great basic tanks. You can wear them as an everyday layering piece too. 
Athleta Polartec Power Stretch 2 Tights, $79 (22) - Running in the cold? These tights are fleece-lined. 
Michi Cyclone Top, $195 (23) - This is a completely ridiculous price (and a somewhat ridiculous top), but on the right person? GOOD. 

Trigger Point Performance The Grid Revolutionary Foam Roller, $39 (24) - Available in other colors. 


Shop Something Blue Marathon Necklace, $44.50 (25) - This is Tumblr so I am confident you either ran a marathon this year or know someone that did. 
Stella McCartney for adidas Gym Bag, $70 (from $100) (26) - I like that it can be worn crossbody.

Manduka Breathe, Bind & Align Package, about $130 (33) - The perfect gift for the yoga fan.

Nathan Strobelight, $10 (35) - Safety first! 
ASICS ‘GEL-NoosaFast 2’ Running Shoe, $100 (36) - AHH! Love these. 
Yogasmoga Tickle Me Tank, $72 (37) - Yogasmoga is getting rave reviews from blogs I’ve read. This tank comes in lots of different colors and looks really flattering.

It took a lot of maneuvering to fit everything in one post because LET’S BE HONEST: Detective Slugging is one of my very favorite activities. I can pretty much guarantee that the slug in your life will love any and all of the items above.

Fabletics Eureka Long-Sleeve Top, $27.95 bought separately (8) - I received this in my last Fabletics order and I’m wearing it now, actually. It’s a good layer for pre- and post-gym, but it’s a really great basic long-sleeve tee for everyday wear too.

Target Mossimo Katherine Leather Boots, $70 (17) - Written about these lots of times too. 
Target Mossimo Drapey V-Neck Tee, $15 (18) - These are fantastic. They could pass for a much more expensive tshirt.

AE Double Zip Bootie, $70 - Take 50% off today with code 94C486V1 (25) - Taupe or similar colored booties seem to work with almost any casual outfit. 
GapFit Motion Long Sleeve T, $45 - Take 40% off with code CYBER (26) - GapFit’s long-sleeve tees are great for everyday wear too—and the thumbholes work great for extra warmth and keeping sleeves in place inside of jackets.

ZARA Striped Drape Neck Sweater, $59.90 (28) - Stripes AND drape neck AND knit AND extra-long sleeves. So good.

ASOS Cable Boyfriend Beanie, $13 (30) - I like the red. 
Target Merona Knit Hat, $15 (31) - I’ve been wearing this a lot lately too. 
ZARA Scarves, left is $35 and right is $50 (32) - ZARA’s extra-oversized scarves are the perfect slug gift.
