When putting together a gift list, you should never forget those practical (but still stylish!) items that might get more use than that long-awaited toy or gadget. It’s always best to find classic basics that look more expensive than their affordable price tag. Find some of my top picks for everyone on your list below:

Kids: As quickly as kids are growing, it makes sense to wrap some of the basics you would have to buy anyway (the kids just love the idea of unwrapping anything :). I am a sucker for H&M’s kid’s collection. Their styles are adorable, and, more importantly, great quality. Anything that can survive under the reign of a kid gets a stamp of approval from me. Top 3 Kids Picks under $30: Cable Knit Cardigan //  Suspender Jeans // Bear Hooded Blanket

Home: When picking out home decor, I always gravitate towards simple, chic designs in sophisticated colors palettes. I like to pick up universal gifts that are perfect for the hostess of an upcoming holiday party just to have on hand for those las minute holiday events. Top 3 Home Gifts under $35: Checkered Throw // Gold Basket // Doormat

Him: H&M is one of my main stops when shopping for menswear. About 75% of Cody’s dress shirts are from H&M so I always pick up a few basics for him around the Holidays. They also have some great structured leather pieces, like this messenger bag and boot, are very high quality compared to their price tags. Top 3 His Gifts: Messenger Bag // Dress Shirt // Brown Boots (love these!)

Hers: Finally, any gift guide wouldn’t be complete without a few hints for what to get the ever elusive ‘her’ – whoever that might be in your life. With temperatures freezing all across the country (Brrrr!) you can’t go wrong with anything that will keep her warm. I love irresistibly classic winter pieces like these leather gloves (can’t wait to get my hands in those) and feminine wrap coats.

    I almost veered off my black and white to buy a red wool CDG shirt with a huge bow on the chest. Seeing your red skirt now fills me with regret!

    Hi! I love love love that skirt but it looks quite different then the one you linked too (the waistband and the material do not look the same). Do you know if that is the same one? Thanks!! 🙂
