Holly Dishes: Gift Ideas
December 08, 2014

Holly here! One of my favorite things in the world is giving gifts to the people I love. The thrill of the hunt, followed by watching my loved ones’ faces light up with joy as they open their presents—it’s all such a rush! Well, for me anyway. If you’re having a little trouble, don’t fret. I’m here to help!

Got a girl in your life you know super well (in my case, my BFF)? Find a fun graphic tee that suits their personal tastes. Maybe they’re a college student, a proud sports fan, a cat lover, a music fanatic, a retro nerd—whatever their style, they’ll appreciate a shirt you put some thought into. Add a statement necklace for that girly bling—it’ll go great with her holiday party dresses, too!

One Wink Crystal Pendant Necklace $19.95 (Compare at $25.99!)

This combination is guaranteed to turn heads. I chose this glittery over-the-knee boot, sparkly bracelet and statement necklace for my sister, who’s a lot like me—she loves to be the center of attention!

Unisa Gillean Over the Knee Boot $49.95 (Compare at $99!)
One Wink Rhinestone Stretch Bracelet $16.95 (Compare at $58!)
One Wink Gemstone Bib Necklace $24.95 (Compare at $40!)

I wanted to get my mom something practical, but still stylish. She’s definitely the cool mom on the block, so I think she’ll dig this chic beanie and plaid scarf. They’re so cute together!

A cap-toed lace-up boot and patterned socks make an amazing present for any guy who’s into the latest trends. I’ve got these wrapped up and ready to give to my older cousin, who always shows up to our holiday parties in style!

Sophisticated. Classic. Respectable. All words I associate with my dad, so naturally I got him some leather oxfords he’ll wear almost every day along with a newsboy cap I think he’ll love.

David & Young Windowpane Newsboy Cap $19.95 (Compare at $28!)
Steve Madden Spencer Oxford $69.95 (Compare at $100!)

You’d never guess my younger brother and I are related. He’s super casual and laidback, so I got him some sneakers (he loves his Nike shoes) and a scarf that’ll go with anything he owns.

David & Young Zig Zag Scarf $19.95 (Compare at $35!)

I’ve got three nieces, and I’m giving them all little stocking stuffer gifts—since their tastes change as fast as their favorite boy bands and school crushes! But aren’t these coin purses ADORABLE? And as for the Anise nail polish, don’t tell, but I bought one for each of them…and more than one for myself (shhhh)!

Tri-Coastal Design Love Cosmetic Bag $14.95 (Compare at $24!)
Mix No. 6 Owl Coin Purse $14.95 (Compare at $25!)
