Christmas Gift Ideas – Louella Reese Picks

So like I mentioned Wednesday, come next week we’re halfway through November. Which means Christmas truly is right around the corner. I know, I know, I like my holidays in order too. BUT Christmas shopping can take a long time especially when you cannot figure out what each person on your list wants. Therefore I will be sharing gift guides here and there to help you out! Don’t hate me for starting early, I promise you’ll be thankful later when your shopping is all done and you can completely enjoy the holiday! 

I’m kicking off the gift guide series with my top picks. These are all items on my wish list and ones any fashionista would be happy to have under the Christmas tree. Some our dreams items for me but others are completely reasonable and even perfect for stocking stuffers {like this}.

So let’s breakdown my top picks {aka wish list}. There’s a little something for every gal on your shopping list this holiday season. From beauty to fashion to jewelry and more! Find out my thoughts on each product and where it stands on my list below. 

  1. Sunglasses – I have been eyeing these beauties for quite some time. The shape is a little unique and the way the metal comes across the nose is definitely different. Perfect for any girl that wants a pair of classic shades with a bit of a twist. 
  2. Oversized Sweater – As you saw here, I’m all about oversized sweaters. They are the best for the fall/winter season. They can easily be paired with denim, corduroys, leggings, skirts, or thrown over dresses. Does this one not look like the coziest thing ever? 
  3. Denim – Another cute twist on a classic. The buttons add a little fun while the cut is definitely a little different. These jeans are popping up everywhere this season and would look adorable paired with heels {as shown in the photo} as well as flats. Come spring they’d also be too cute with wedges and sandals. 
  4. Satchel – Here’s a dream item. I can’t help it though, this handbag has been swooning hard!! The color is true perfection and the shape of this bag is incredibly chic. This is an item worth the investment as it’d be a bag you could carry for years! 
  5. Eyeshadow Palette – How pretty is this palette? Every gal could use an upgrade to her makeup case. This little palette would be a great addition for all the events the holiday season brings. Hello New Years! 
  6. Bronzer – Great stocking stuffer! Come winter ever gal needs a little help from a fabulous bronzer. This Bobbi Brown bronzer comes in a variety of shades to perfectly match your skin tone. 
  7. Lipstick – I die over MAC lipsticks. They stay on forever and truly hold their color. Not something I can say about other’s I have tried. If your gal, mom, sister, or bff have lipstick on their wish list, MAC is the way to go. I’m loving this color – Please Me
  8. Flats – Another slightly dream item. If you have a cat lover in your life these shoes are a MUST for them! I’m not even a cat fan {I’m sorry} but I LOVE these. They’re absolutely adorable. The blue suede couldn’t be prettier. They’re a great flat to take from day to night. 
  9. Clutch – This is one of those clutches that every gal needs in her life. Leopard is in fact a neutral these days and this bag would receive so much wear! From dressing up casual looks to pairing with a New Years Eve dress. The options with this clutch are endless. 
  10. Bangle – How sweet is this little bangle? This beauty is towards the top of my personal wish list. I love how dainty it is. This is a great bracelet for someone who likes just wearing one or two pieces of jewelry. While also being a great stacking piece for someone who loves to wear several bracelets. 
  11. Gloves – These gloves come in a variety of colors so you can easily pick your favorite or the person your shopping for’s favorite. Personally I of course love the blue! The color really pops while still having the ability to match with quite a lot. 
  12. Patagonia – Does this not look like the coziest thing ever? I instantly thought of sitting by a bonfire, making a s’more, and looking up at the stars when I saw this jacket. This is a great pick for anyone anyone who likes to be outdoors during the cooler months or just really loves being cozy! 
  13. Uggs – These minis are at the top of my wish list this year. I love how they still offer a lot of warmth and comfort but don’t cover half of your leg like the other Ugg options do. They’re a bit more laid back. Uggs to me are perfect for fall/winter vacations, running errands in cooler temps, and rocking around the house. Their also a shoe you’ll have for years. 
  14. Pajamas – Everyone needs a pair of matching pajamas! Especially come Christmas right? This set would be great for Christmas morning or to wear like the family is in town visiting. I love the little detail on the sleeve. 
  15. Skincare – I have been dying to try this line out. I’ve heard amazing things! If you’re looking to pamper someone in your life, this little set would be a great option. 
  16. Face Serum – I’ve used their serum for over a year now and swear by it! The results are amazing! Again, if you’re looking to pamper someone for Christmas, this would be a wonderful purchase.
