Gift Guide: For Your Family

Gift Guide For Your Family I wit & whimsy

Happy December, all!

If you’re not all shopped out from Black Friday + Cyber Monday (or you bought too much for yourself like somebody I know…#whoops), then today’s Gift Guide is for you! All the gifts I’ve rounded up for your family members. Mom/Dad/Brother/Sister/Brother + Sister In Laws – you name it.

Whether they love coffee or savor a good night in – there’s something for everyone!

My favorites on the list? These which I swear by for travel (so you’re basically giving a gift every airplane ride for the recipient haha!), this bag which is incredible quality (my brother owns it and loves it),  this cozy throw which would be perfect to read a book under and this set which is perfect for the family member who is always hosting!


See my gift guide for hostesses, for your BFF and gift guide for men and don’t forget to check out my pinning of more gift ideas and holiday outfit ideas, too!

Mackage Jacket I Madewell Tee I J Brand Denim I wit & whimsy

Distressed Denim I Saucony Kicks I wit & whimsy

I’m nearly always a heels girl but New York has taught me to embrace flats + sneakers. I only have a couple of pairs of sneakers that I would consider wearing with street clothes (namely these Nikes and these classics) so when I saw Saucony had updated their timeless style of kicks with a black + hot pink version, I was easily sold. I had a pair of these sneakers in red and white in college and I wore them to death. They are comfortable but stylish.

Paired with distressed denim, a basic tee (finally found one that looked ok on me!) and my new favorite jacket for weekends and going out and you’ve got an easy weekend style look that can take you from brunch to errands to cocktails.

I bought this jacket before I went to Europe because I’ve always loved the Mackage coats and didn’t have a short coat that could be worn at nighttime during the winter (aside from a leather jacket.) I adore the leather detailing on it and over-sized collar and the weight is perfect so you’re not sweating under it (#ithappens.)

Did you all have a good long weekend? I’ve been working nearly all of mine and also battling a cold so I’ve certainly had better holidays but I’m in Colorado for a few more days which helps my spirits no doubt. Hope you have a happy (Cyber) Monday! (See my picks for the sales below!)

Get Beauty Products (That Never Go On Sale) – On Sale

Birchbox’s Cyber Weekend Sale is so good I’ve already completed 2 orders because I realized that so many of the products they are offering 25% off (the entire store!) never go on sale!

Here are the products that are personal favorites of mine that I can’t recommend enough (I use most every day!) Seriously, the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray will change your life. So while you’re at it pick up the travel size on sale, too. You won’t want to go anywhere without it once you become addicted. And the Stila mascara is a god-send if you want major lashes.


And here’s a few more items I bought as I had heard good things from editors and friends.


Finally, if you need gifts for your friends or sister, be sure to check out their Gift Sets.

Today is the last day of the sale so don’t miss out! Use code BIGDEAL at checkout!
