Happy Friday! 

I have joined forces with 50+ bloggers to create the Ultimate Gift Guide hosted by Jeanette from Snazzy Little Things. All of us bloggers have been planning this for a couple of months and let me say, I personally have been feeling the pressure to deliver a thought-out gift guide for $25 and under and I think I may have done it...So, Lets go shopping! 

50+ Bloggers // 50+ Gift Guides // Over $3,500 in GIVEAWAYS

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9  
10 // 11 // 12 // 13 // 14 // 15 // 16 // 17

When planning this gift guide, I was faced with the challenge to find things that can relate to everyone. I broke my gift guide down and separated it by categories: For Her, For the Designer, For Him, and For the Kids. Being a designer myself, I felt obligated to incorporate some chic finds into my gift guide. 

For Her:

1.  U.S. Polo Assn. Woman's Gold Tone and Pink Watch - The color of this watch is beautiful and you cannot beat the price. 

2. Premium Synthetic Kabuki Cosmetic Brush Set - Any girl would love a brush set for the holidays...I know I would! 

3. Barse: "Jubilee" Ornate Wide Band Ring - This ring is everything has such a worn, vintage, chunky feel to it...It is gorgeous. 

4. House of Harlow: Small Button Cuzco Stud Earrings - How gorgeous are these earrings?...and they match the Barse ring (#3) perfectly. This is not your typical gold or silver earring, it definitely has some style to it. LOVE! 

5: Enchanted Forest Adult Coloring Book - Adult coloring books have been super trendy this year and have fun whimsical pages. 

For the Designer 

6. HANDMADE Original Vintage Style 1940's Lana Turner Pink Decor Art - Can I say this art piece is "Golden" I literally want this for myself. It is GORGEOUS and it is handmade....one word, Talented! 

7. Emily Henderson: Styled - Emily Henderson released this book this year and it has been a hit! I personally do not own it but it is on my wish list for this Christmas. 

8. Turquoise Chinoiserie Vase - This is a bit of splurge, but if you love a good Chinoiserie decor than you will need to have this one...I have never seen any "Chino" pieces in this color. LOVE

9. Vint+Au 11x17 Gem Mineral Watercolor Print - I personally have the 3 piece rock set similar to this and they are gorgeous. They are trendy, colorful, and edgy and can add the perfect amount of coolness into a space. 

10. Minted Notebook - If you need to notebook for the upcoming year, Minted is your company. They have a plethora of notebook designs and for a little extra money, you can add an address book and planner to it. 

For Him 

11. Wooden Cufflink Box 24 Pairs - This is such a smart way to organize cufflinks. 

12. Set of Assorted Cufflinks - Cufflinks are a great gift for any man and are sometimes just an after-thought...Don't let this be an afterthought! Plus...What would you have to put in your cufflink box? Ha!

13. Phillips Norelco Multigroom 3100, All-In-One Trimmer - This is the best gift you can get your husband, son, friend. The mister always tells me that his all-in-one trimmer is the BEST gift he has ever received...Plus...the price is amazing! 

For the Kids

14. Spirograph - How cool is this...This totally reminds me of my childhood and can keep any child busy for hours. 

15. Art Set - If your kids are like mine, then art is their happy place. This art set has a plethora of art supplies AND a case to keep it in...WIN, WIN! 

16. Artist Desk Easel - An art easel to go with an art set...How else will the little ones do their art work? 

17. Lego Classic Creative Bricks - Lego's--Every kid loves lego's, right? 

Phew, that was one hell of a list!...BUT do not go just yet. All of us bloggers participating in the gift guide was asked to host a giveaway and I was lucky enough to get Minted and Vint+Au to sponsor my giveaway. They will be gifting a $50 store credit giveaway EACH. Since I have two sponsors, I figure I would host two separate giveaways. Please feel free to enter whichever one you want.
