You know the holidays are right around the corner when the tree lighting ceremony in Rockefeller Center has just taken place. The holiday buzz is in the air as people shuffle from one department store to another, frantically searching for holiday gifts to give to their friends and loved ones. If you’re worried that you won’t be able to find the perfect gift, look no further; you’ve come to the right place. This article will give you the inside scoop on affordable and fashionable gift ideas for the 2011 holiday season.
Looking for a cute pair of gloves to give to a friend? Ugg has just come out with these adorable “pop top mittens.” These neat accessories can act as mittens or expose your fingers, perfect for those who just need to read a text message or sneak a BBM despite the 10-degree weather and the exceptional sensitivity that our extremities have to the cold. These gloves come in a variety of colors and have shearling trim on the bottom. This gift is sure to be a favorite among your friends.
Another one of my favorite gift ideas for the 2011 holiday season are Coralia Leets necklaces that are exclusively for Bloomingdales.These trendy gold-plated sterling silver necklaces come in black, white, blue, violet, and bronze druzy stone. The stone adds a hint of shimmer to any outfit and is the perfect gift for a person who loves jewelry.
If small accessories and jewelry are too hard to pick out, you cannot go wrong with makeup. Bobbi Brown has eye shadow palettes that are conveniently priced at $45.00 and will last for quite a long time. The “Cool Party Eye” is my favorite eye shadow for those who want a hint of gold, nude, and light pink shimmer on their eyes. Since the holidays are all about events and gatherings, the “Party Eye Palette” is the perfect gift for the social butterfly. Combining dark grays, blacks, and violets, these eye shadows will be sure to catch the eye of fellow partygoers.
Last but not least, perfume is always a go-to gift. My personal favorite, Chloe, is a must have during this time of year. This light, feminine perfume has a scent that is sure to last all day. Available in all major department stores and also on sephora.com, this perfume is sure to be a hit.
Whether you like to start your holiday shopping early or choose to save it for the last minute, these gift ideas are sure to be a favorite among all friends and family.
