The Best Gifts Of Holiday 2016…For Yourself

Holiday gifting season (we hate that phrase too, but it is accurate) is in full swing and that means one very wonderful thing – lots of great deals and sales on things that might make the perfect giftsfor ourselves, of course!

While a lot of the stuff being promoted for the holidays and all of the other significant shopping days of the year is not really all that stylish or even desirable, this is the time to pick up some fantastic items for a steal. For example…

Beauty. The various gift sets and special holiday items have been a major part of our holiday wish list for a while now, and there are some truly exceptional ones this year. We especially like the Laura Mercier Limited Edition Master Class collection, which looks like it would be great for day to evening looks as well as being excellent for travel – it has everything you need in one sleek case.

Perfume. All your favorite fragrances are now available in the form of fancy gift sets, or use the holidays to discover a new scent with sampler sets like Maison Margiela’s Replica discovery set. What’s not to love?

Skincare. Now is the time to treat yourself to something indulgent, like this Peter Thomas Roth mask vault. Invest in your skin this season – taking good care of it is perhaps one of the best presents that you can give yourself.

Cashmere. There’s nothing quite as luxuriously cozy as an amazing cashmere scarf or sweater. And while they do make wonderful gifts, you deserve (at least) one as well. While v-necks and cardigans are always a good idea, this oversize turtleneck is on-trend and surprisingly flattering paired with cigarette pants or skinnies.

Winter Gear. Coats, scarves, gloves, hats, mittens, and all sorts of cold weather necessities are on sale, so now is the ideal time to pick them up on sale. Go for classics like this CO double breasted long coat.

Boots. Same goes for boots – while the end of the season is traditionally the time to get good deals on winter wear, now the seasonal sales are shifting earlier. Which means you can wear your new things as soon as possible; for instance, these over-the-knee Sam Edelman boots would be perfect to wear right now!

Jewelry. While lots of basics (think diamond studs and strands of pearls) and ultra-trendy brands go on sale around the holidays, lots of more interesting jewelry is marked down as well so retailers can clear their counters before the end of the year. You might want to consider picking up a statement piece like this Alexis Bittar crystal necklace.

So while we’re sure that you are getting plenty of fabulous presents for everyone on your list this year, you had better not forget to include yourself! ‘Tis the season for a bit of indulgence, after all.
