I always love it when we publish our holiday gift guides, because I pretty much just use this as a chance to make my own Christmas wish list. Today’s guide covers a variety of price points from stores around the world, but the common factor is that every one of these items is something I would be thrilled to find under the tree!
If you missed the Black Friday sale guide that Amy posted yesterday, most of those great deals are still available today, so be sure to check it out.
I always love to share sleepwear and that seems even more appropriate this year. These slippers are on my list and are only $14 right now; they come in four colors and match the robe that Amy shared in yesterday’s post (our mind meld still works, even an ocean apart!). I’ll share the perfect pair of pajamas tomorrow as part of our annual small business gift guide.
Next up are these beautifully simple leather loafers. They’re 33% off right now with free shipping and returns, and you can get an additional 10% off if you sign up for their emails.
I absolutely love camel coats, and this one is stunning. You can wear the neck snapped up as pictured below, or left open. It drapes beautifully and is a cozy wool blend. It also comes in blue if you want a pop of color. Use BLACKFRIDAY for 50% off and free shipping.
While you’re clicking add to cart, you might want to use that same coupon for this tassel necklace. At just $15, it makes a great stocking stuffer or teacher gift.
If you’re after a more casual coat, this puffer coat falls below the hip and comes in three colors. Coupon code INDULGE will get you 50% off and free shipping. Size down since it runs big!
Next up is the beautiful leather bag that I bought when we visited Florence in September. It’s 50% off right now! I reached out to Misuri and they are happy to ship to the States, plus they offered us 20% off regularly priced items (use coupon code MAGNOLIA20). Florence is known for its leather, and wouldn’t a handmade bag, belt, or jacket from Italy be a great gift idea? They’ll even put your initials on it at no extra charge.
Emma bag (comes in three colors)
Another great idea from Misuri is a pair of their buttery soft leather gloves. You can buy them unlined, or lined with silk or cashmere. They come in eighteen colors, so you can match a pair to every coat in your closet. I’m giving these to friends and family this year and am so excited to hear how everyone likes them!
Since their website lists prices in euro, I just wanted to mention how that works. One euro is usually around $1.20 (you can check the daily exchange rate online). I just use my US credit cards over here all the time as neither of mine charge a foreign transaction fee, or you can check out using Amazon Pay or Paypal. One of these days I’ll have to show you all the leather jacket my husband had them make for him; he had them sew a silk map in as the lining and it is gorgeous!
Next up on the list are these cashmere sleep masks. I wear a sleep mask every night and think that a silk one for summer and a cashmere one for winter sounds pretty luxurious, don’t you think?
You can sign up for their emails to get 10% off, and they offer free gifts (and really nice ones!) with $300+ purchases.
Tory Burch is having a great sale right now. Use coupon code THANKS for 30% off plus free shipping and returns. Their items always come beautifully packaged and ready to gift.
On my wish list are these gorgeous Kira boots (they come in several colors and I am undecided!).
This Miller necklace has been in my cart for months:
Last but not least, isn’t this belt great? All three of these items are 30% off right now.
If you’ve been reading for awhile, then you know how we love our great-smelling Glamorous Wash from Tyler Candle Company. It’s become very popular around blogland, so I thought I’d find a new scent for my towels and sheets. If you love Capri Blue Volcano candles, then you might enjoy their laundry soap. It sells out frequently, but keep checking back here (30% off) or here (10% off if you sign up for emails).
This tea for one set is in my favorite colors–blue, white, and gold, and so elegant. It’s also 30% off. Pair it with some fancy tea for a great gift idea.
I love to get and give candles. Voluspa candles are beautiful and I love to find ways to use the jars when I’m done burning the candle. This one is $18 with free shipping.
Also at Nordstrom are these darling “Ride or Die” bracelets. They’re only $20 and perfect for that friend who will be there, no matter what.
If you like to get (and give) books as a gift, let me recommend two. First, I am a huge fan of Ina Garten’s Barefoot Contessa cookbooks and they are some of the only ones that I have kept and used over and over again. Her new one just dropped in time for Christmas!
I also enjoy giving devotional books. I’ve mentioned this one before, but I do like to go through one before I recommend it.
I know I already mentioned just how much I love cashmere, so it won’t surprise you that this beautiful throw made my wish list. You can use it as a shawl, scarf, or blanket (I always take one on flights). It comes in seven colors and is 50% off right now, so right around $100, with coupon code EARLY.
And finally, last but not least, if you don’t have a leopard clutch, you are missing out! Use it on its own or throw it into a tote bag to corral smaller items. It’s 20% with code BIGSALE (under $40).
I hope that gives you some good ideas for giving (and receiving). I’ll be back tomorrow with our annual “Shop Small” gift guide–thanks for stopping by!

Thank you for “finding”Misuri for us – what great prices for quality leather goods!!
Susan–I agree, and I can vouch that the quality is top-notch. Thanks for helping to support a small business in an especially hard-hit area of the world!

I always enjoy your blog with such great information. I have ordered the books for my daughters but now looking for my teenage grandchildren. Do you have any suggestions? My husband and I visited Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. At that time we were able to stay at Edelweiss Lodge and Resort and took advantage of their tours. A beautiful place to visit! Enjoy your time in Germany. Thanks for your husband’s service
