When it comes to holiday gifts, I love looking at lists that other bloggers have posted. I did most of my shopping so far this year in brick and mortar shops in Chicago, but I plan to finish up the rest of the gifts online. I wanted to share with you some ideas I had for super wonderful gifts that will please even the pickiest of people. Here is my short and sweet 2017 Holiday Gift Guide!
My FAVORITE COSMETIC Idea:
Give your loved ones the gift of luscious looking brows and lashes this year with holiday kits from RevitaLash Cosmetics! The Lash Perfection Holiday Collection and Brow Perfection Holiday Collection both feature the beloved RevitaLash Advanced and RevitaBrow Advanced formulas, along with additional cosmetic products in sleek packaging for the ultimate gift of luxury. | RevitaLash Lash Perfection Holiday Collection The gift collection features RevitaLash Advanced, Defining Liner in Raven, Volumizing Primer, and Volumizing Mascara.

My FAVORITE HOME DECOR Ideas:
Vellabox is a monthly curated candle subscription box, delivering all natural and hand-poured candles sourced from the finest American makers – starting at just $10 per month. They partner with a lifestyle brand for a bonus gift and a different candle artisan each month to illuminate your home with the scents of the season. | Review: I have been a fan of this subscription candle biz since I featured them in my 2016 Gift Guide. It comes wrapped in burlap in a darling little yellow box. This is definitely the perfect gift because it keeps giving all year. | Gift subscriptions are prepaid for 3, 6 or 12 months | Price: $10 – $30 per month | Availability: www.vellabox.com
Bright Endeavors, a social enterprise, is lighting the path out of poverty for adolescent moms in Chicago through a paid job-training program crafting soy wax candles. Handcrafted and signed by participants on a path towards professional success, and are available in seasonal scents such as Almond Berry Galette, a confectionary blend of roasted nutmeg and almond with notes of almond berry and sweet cream–all the indulgence, none of the calories. | Review: These candles smell incredible and I was super excited to learn about this company and their mission. One hundred percent of the proceeds go to Bright Endeavors participants who are not only learning job skills to gain independence, but also understanding their place in the broader world, how they fit into their communities, and how they can have an impact on the world. | Price: Bright Endeavors candles come in three sizes, signature glass ($24.99), retreat tin ($12.99), and spa tin ($7.99) | Availability: brightendeavors.org
My FAVORITE GIFT Idea for MEN:
Designed for the modern man on the go, you’ve got to check out DAZI ties! Each tie is approx. 2.5″ wide at the tip and 58″ in length, which is perfect for every height; they fit just right on even the tallest or shortest of guys! Each tie is lined on the inside with a fun, unique fabric to add character and quality. | Review: This is a craze for college men these days and my daughter’s boyfriend is no exception. He and his fraternity brothers sport the DAZI plaid ties around the University of Tulsa campus. | Price: $28 | Availability: www.daziusa.com
My FAVORITE GIFT Idea for ANYONE:
The stylish and affordable KODAK PRINTOMATIC instantly prints your shots, allowing you to preserve and share memories from your everyday life moments in a snap! From your favorite concert to your best friend’s birthday party, you’ll never miss a special moment. The KODAK PRINTOMATIC Camera is available in gray and sunny yellow, with additional Kodak ZINK Photo Paper available in 20 and 50 packs, sold separately. | Review: A point-and-shoot camera that instantly prints! What can be better than that? This really helps me when it comes to giving photos to my parents. They like to put framed prints around the house and on the refrigerator. | Camara Price: $69.99 | Availability: www.kodak.com
