My Gift Wish List!

Ok, I shared for you what I'm getting for the kiddies but how about a little something for Mama? Truth be told, I am slightly embarassed to admit that most of these items have been on my wish list for months and a few of them may or may not have already squirmed their way into my home... I blame Black Friday shopping. Eeks!

This is also a great list of classic, useful items that you could either ask for or get for a friend/mother/mother-in-law, etc... and if your husband is as bad at buying gifts as mine is, just send him this post ;)


1. Wink-of-an-Eye Infinity Scarf
I saw this scarf on another blogger I follow and immediately reached out to her to see where she got it! I love it so much and it's the perfect color combo to mix and match a variety of different styles.

2. Kate Spade 'Putting on the Ritz Studs'
I just bought these for my girlfriend as part of her 30th birthday gift and after holding them in my hand, I want them even more. They are so beautiful and sparkly - the perfect everyday stud that dresses up a casual outfit or can be a subtle addition to an already glamorous ensemble.

3. Classic 'Short' Ugg Boots in Chestnut
Hubs got me my first pair of Uggs {in gray} for Christmas last year and I wear them so much it's insane. I wanted a brown colored pair and debated between the Sand, the Chestnut and the Chocolate and ultimately went with the Chestnut because they seem the most versatile. Yeaaaa. I already bought these for myself. Merry Christmas to me!

4. Travel Jewelry Case
I am in desperate need of a good, solid jewelry case to safely keep all my beads and baubles when we travel. I love the pattern on this J.Crew one and also love how it has little holes for earrings and loops for rings... it's so cute!

5. GAP Fur-Trimmed Puffy Vest
I apologize in advance because this vest is sold out everywhere. Like, EVERYWHERE. But they are constantly getting new shipments in and add them to the site {they just sell out again almost immediately}. Maybe if you live in a warm-weather state they might have them in your store! Anyway... Ariana has this vest and I seriously loved it so much I was jealous and wanted one of my own. I couldn't find my size anywhere so I turned to eBay and got SO lucky that I found a brand new one in my size! Um. Yea. Bought this, too. Oops. But seriously, I couldn't resist. Also, it's so comfy and warm... I'm obsessed.

6. Leather Travel Wallet
Ok, this is the last thing I bought for myself. I promise. But J.Crew was doing crazy Black Friday deals and free shipping, and well... I'm a sucker. Anywho, for YEARS, I have wanted a leather wallet that can hold my passport and boarding pass together and I seriously have not been able to find a really nice one for under $400. Thats why I simply had to pull the trigger and get this one... can't wait to use it on our trip this winter!

7. Bobbi Brown Ultimate Brush Set
I can't tell you how long I have been pining for this brush set. I own the mini set which is like 3 - 4 brushes and I've had it for like 6 years now and could definitely use the upgrade. I LOVE Bobbi Brown brushes and since I'm particular of what I use on my face, I don't just like buying any random makeup brushes... These ones are sooooo soft, high quality, and my favorite makeup brushes ever. A must have for any lady who has a face ;)

8. Tinley Road Red and Blue Torsade Necklace
I just love this necklace. It's cute, it's simple, it can be dressed up and I think the colors are different and beautiful. Would look so great with a LBD or even a cream colored cableknit sweater... love!

9. Pottery Barn Faux Fur Throw
There are few things I love more than getting cozy on the couch when it's cold outside. I am in the process of {slowly} re-decorating our family room and I would love a soft, white blanket like this as an accent piece and also to snuggle under on cool winter nights!

So what do you think? What do you want or are asking for (or buying for yourself, haha) this year??

Great list! I have never been a puffer vest girl, but am totally wanting one.
Since I'm preggo I asked for all things non clothes. New Kate Spade wallet, new black Steve Madden "INTYCE" boots, earings similar to the ones in this post, parfum, ULTA giftcard, etc.

The complete Harry Potter DVD set is on sale at Best Buy today for a ridiculous price! I'm asking my husband to get it for me. I mean, my son. =) I thought this might interest you since you're an HP fan as well. ;)
