After a year that has been challenging for so many, I wanted LM’s very first gift guide to come from the heart. All of these gifts will help others, from pediatric cancer patients at St. Jude to artisans in underserved communities to survivors of trafficking and domestic violence. These companies combine two of my favorite things…beautiful elegant luxury goods and helping others:) We can still celebrate a joyful season of hope, and lend a hand where it is needed most along the way<3
This guide features gifts from two of my favorite retailers, Olivela and The Little Market. Olivela has the coolest business model, they donate 20% of the proceeds from every single purchase to charity. They also happen to carry one of the most beautifully curated selections of any online luxury retailer. This holiday season they are featuring St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and when you purchase it tells you exactly what kind of impact your gifts will have in helping precious children fighting cancer. The Little Market is a “nonprofit fair-trade shop featuring ethically sourced, artisan made products”. I fell in love with their pumpkin pie candles and just went on from there;). They give tons of detail about the makers of the products and and who your purchase will help to support and their branding is darling<3
~Gifts Under $100~ Perfect gifts for the hostess, girlfriends, or yourself:)
Getting into some of my daily skincare favorites(like my beloved Sun Drops and Hyaluronic Serum), elegant and unexpected hair accessories, and some winter wardrobe staples.
Tom Ford frames(the man knows what he’s doing when it comes to eyewear, and everything else too, really), pearls(always), and the cutest makeup travel bag that is actually functional. A little La Perla is always a treat for everyone;)
In a word, jewelry<3 Classic timeless pieces and then some of the most unique, exotic, glam pieces I have ever seen. Staples for any wardrobe from Ferragamo. These are gifts to remember.
There isn’t a gift on these lists that I wouldn’t be thrilled to receive myself, and I hope they provide a little holiday gifting inspiration at the end of this somewhat uninspired year. You will notice these are only for the ladies, tried to stay in my expertise;)
