With Thanksgiving next week, and all the Black Friday sales that are to follow, my family members have been exchanging Christmas lists the past week or so. That way we can shop for each other during the sales! Since you are probably doing the same, I thought I would share what’s on my list this year. Some of these are serious wishlist items, while others are more practical. When making a list, I try to include multiple price points so there are options for everyone from my sisters (who will probably spend around $50) to Daniel (who may spend more 😉).
Also, I included a link to download my gift tracker that I personally use to keep track of what I’ve purchased for everyone on my list. I use it to budget, as well as determine my actual spending at the end of the season. Hope this helps organize your gift-giving this holiday season!

The number one item on my Christmas list this year is this Gucci cross body bag. I have loved it for a long time, and since I haven’t moved on from it I finally have added it to my wish list! Nude bags are my favorite to buy and wear because they go with everything and are appropriate for every season. I know I will get tons of use out of this!
While I’m a huge believer and fan of high-end hair products, they are one of the things I hate to buy. It’s not like they are super fun to spend your money on like new clothes or shoes because no one actually sees them. But they do make a huge difference, and I am in love with these Oribe products. The Gold Lust Shampoo and Conditioner have strengthened my hair so much since I started using them about three months ago. And no texturizing spray can hold a candle to the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray. It’s the best (and the most expensive) and worth every penny!
Dyson Hair Dryer
Have you guys seen this yet? The same Dyson that makes the top of the line vacuums recently created this blowdryer and it is supposed to blow all other hair dryers out of the water (pun intended 😉). It claims to significantly cut down on dry time which is something I need, especially with extensions!
Karen Walker Sunglasses
If you’ve been reading my blog long at all or following on Instagram, you know I am obsessed with my Karen Walker sunnies. I have this pair in both black and tortoise, and they are all I will wear. Recently she released this cat eye version, and I am dying to get the tortoise pair!
These are on my Christmas list every year because they are the absolute coziest things EVER! this year I just have to have this “I love my dog” one because, well I’m obsessed with Ryleigh! If you have never had a Wildfox sweatshirt, add one to your list because you will live in it every chance you get!
Just the other day I dropped my favorite tumbler and the lid broke…boo! As a replacement, I came across this adorable floral one and love it so much. How stinking cute is the pink straw?!
Shoes and handbags typically dominate my Christmas list every year, and this year is no exception obviously. When I came across this pointed toe slouchy bootie, it immediately went on my list. Two of my favorite things in one bootie…yes please!
I like to add an easily liftable item like this throw blanket to my list so that if a relative asks my mom what Daniel or I would like, she can easily tell them this. It’s an appropriate “couple’s gift” and who doesn’t love a cozy throw blanket? I absolutely love this one because of the cute pom pom trim!
Cute luggage is something that I love every time I see it, but never want to actually splurge on and buy myself. This rose gold set is a great price point and super cute!
Okay, I know I started this whole list with the Gucci bag, and two bags is definitely over the top but hey, it’s my list right?! This black Chloe Marcie bag is one I’ve loved for a long time, and actually owned a dupe for last season. Because I carried it so much, it is too worn out and I think it may be time to upgrade to the real deal. What do you think? 😉
And because we will all be giving lots of gifts this season, I created a spreadsheet to keep track of my list and budget and wanted to share it with YOU! If you click the link below, you can download your own blank copy and keep everything as organized as possible this holiday season!
