Unwrapping the Joy of Holiday Gift-Giving


One of the most cherished aspects of the holiday season is witnessing the pure joy that lights up someone’s face when they receive the perfect gift…

But the pressure of finding that perfect gift is one that can make even the most dedicated shoppers cringe with anxiety! Keeping that anxiety in check is one of the reasons why we’re sharing our fabulous gift ideas a little earlier than we usually do here on Be Iconic Style. Our second reason, and it’s important to note this, is that retail sales continue to be at an all-time high—everything is selling out in record time. And let’s just think about that for a moment: you don’t want to find those perfect gifts for the special people in your life only to learn they’re sold out.

So, let’s dispense with the stress! Why not start by shopping some of the delicious treasures I’ve found for your consideration? They’re not only perfect for your loved ones, but you may see one or two that you may want to gift yourself. (We won’t judge, we promise!)

We’ve set up a few categories to help you organize your shopping, including gifts under $100 (perfect for hostess gifts, work colleagues, friends and to be used as stocking-stuffers), luxe gifts for women, and gifts suitable for everyone. There is something for everyone, and I bet you’ll be as possessed by them as I am! As I shopped all these yummy gift-giving candidates, I had to smile—I wanted almost all of them for myself! And as we all know, wanting to hang onto the gifts we’re buying for others is the hallmark of the perfect gift!

So, without further ado, let’s begin.

Gifts Under $100

I love this category for the enchanting variety of gifts that, though perhaps not as pricey, are clever, endlessly useful, and ultimately, things you want for yourself! This category is just plain fun!

Luxe Gifts for Women

This category is chock full of the stuff of dreams and comprised of those perfectly adorable pieces that will bring huge smiles to the ladies in your life. There are so many “WOWS” in this section. Have the best time ever!


Gifts for Everyone

I had such fun pulling together shopping for this category! From the travel treasures I included to the Bang & Olufsen noise-canceling Adaptive headphones and everything else in between, there are so many intriguing and joy-inspiring finds that can also work for the men in your life. Love, love, love!


Summing it all up…

In a perfect world, our holidays would always be cherished moments of joy, relaxation, and fun with family and friends—but the reality is that we are often too stressed out with everything going on during the season to enjoy them the way we truly should. It is my intention to relieve you of at least some of that stress by providing you with this treasure trove of inspired gifts. Here’s to crossing gift shopping off your holiday “to-do” list as effortlessly and joyfully as possible!
