Now that Thanksgiving has already come and gone, it's time to officially begin thinking about the gift-giving season. What are you going to get for the woman or the man on your list? It can be difficult when you are shopping for someone that seems to have everything or when you need to exchange gifts at work where you aren't sure who will be the end receiver. In turn, here are a variety of gift options to hopefully help make your shopping just a little easier.
An Adea Layering Top
From the fabric to the versatility, an Adea Layering Top is a nice gift for any woman on your list. The fabric is soft and of Italian origins, which ensures even those with the most sensitive of skin can enjoy this gift. As for the versatility, I specifically chose the Layering Top category because many of these pieces can be dressed up or down. As for my current favorite Adea Layering Top, I'm loving Adea's Dolman Sleeve Top. It'll add a nice edge to a pair of jeans or even a skirt.
As many of you know, I travel a lot. It was some time back I finally invested in some new luggage - cue Tumi. Prior to this, I simply purchased luggage to use. I didn't realize luggage should be enjoyed and should not be a struggle to maneuver. Tumi is created for the person on-the-go, and they think of luggage features before you even realize you need them. For a carry-on, I prefer the International Expandable Carry-On. If you aren't quite ready to go all-in on luggage for someone, the Packing Cubes are fantastic and a perfect example of something I didn't think I would use at first and now can't leave without them. I have them in mink and appreciate their versatility. This brand is also a good gift for him too.
This UK-based brand offers a variety of gifts, suitable for a holiday party at work to your hostess. From scented candles to hand lotions and hand washes, you can create a nice gift basket within a price range that fits your needs. In fact, recently I was out and about when family was visiting when we stopped at a boutique that leveraged this brand. As soon as my family member tried the brand's hand wash and lotion, she commented how much she liked them. Molton Brown is a classic and has been around since 1973.

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.
My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
