It’s so funny to me how time and age can change your outlook on the holiday season. When you’re little, the magic that surrounds the season comes from the excitement of seeing Santa, the rich taste of hot cocoa, and of course, presents under the tree on Christmas morning. I can even recall struggling to fall asleep on Christmas eve and then waking up before sunrise to race down the stairs to see if Santa came!
But, as I’ve gotten older and as I’ve become a mom, I’ve realized how much more joy I get from giving gifts as opposed to receiving them. I mean, of course it’s fun to treat yourself every once in awhile, but watching someone else’s face light up when you give them something they’ve been wanting is just priceless!
This year I am teaming up with Kendra Scott to share some gifts I’ll be gifting for some of the most special women in my life. These women are all family members and play such an active, supportive role in my life. As I began picking pieces out for each of them, I tried my best to keep in mind their personal style. I wanted each piece to reflect their style and to be something they would we day after day, season after season.
To help me make the right choice for each woman, I used the Kendra Scott Gift Assistant. If you haven’t checked it out yet, I highly recommend you do! It’s so easy to use and really does help you narrow down the right jewelry for the right person. You start by narrowing down the type of person you want to buy for – mom, sister, bff, etc., and then you choose their style – boho, classy, glamour, etc.. From there your choices will be narrowed down and easy to pick! It definitely helped me!
- Myles Bangle – feminine and classy are two words to describe my sister-in-laws style. She’s a new mom this year and I wanted her to have something that she could wear every day and feel special.
- Avi Hoop Earrings – my sister is one of the most important women in my life without a doubt. She has such a chic, feminine, boho style and I wanted to gift her something that would resonate with that vibe. I chose the Avi Hoop Earrings for her in gold. I actually have these hoop earrings and swear by them. They are incredibly light! They are earrings that can be worn all day at work or paired with a cocktail dress in the evening for a holiday event.
- Rayne Necklace in Ivory Pearl – my mom’s style is feminine and classic. She gravitates toward classic silhouettes and wears a lot of black. On a day-to-day basis, she wears very simple jewelry like these earrings or this necklace. However, she loves wearing a statement necklace when she has an event to go to or a cocktail party to attend with my dad. I thought this Rayne Necklace in Ivory Pearl would make such a fun statement for her! It would look great with a LBD or draped over a black shawl.
If you’re still not sure what type of jewelry piece to get for your loved one, I recommend the Kendra Scott candles. I have gifted the rose scented candle several times and it’s alway a big it! If you’re needing a quick stocking stuffer, I’d grab a nail polish or two – they last long and dry fast!
If you’re in the Dallas area, I’d also recommend stopping by one of the upcoming Kendra Scott pop-up events happening across Dallas and Fort Worth. I personally love shopping for jewelry in person so I can see the pieces and touch them. It’s also nice to have someone help you. And, you may even end up walking out the door with a little something for yourself like I did like this Fern Pendant Necklace (under $50) that ended up coming home with me. Shhh!
DFW POP-UP EVENTS:
- 12/13-12/14: Stockyards

Happy shopping and happy holidays!
