OK, without further adieu – I give you stuff you can BUY and stuff you can WIN for the holidays. #LetterRip
After Party Candle Co is like rainbows and butterflies and unicorns and diamonds all rolled into one seriously fabulous candle. No, seriously. As a VIP hostess in Los Angeles, owner Becky Beck knew these rare champagne bottles were meant for more than a night out at exclusive clubs around the world. She brilliantly decided to give each bottle a second chance at life by hand cutting, sanding and pouring soy blended candles into these rare beauties. From the Ace Rose and Gold stunners to the Cristal and Perriet-Jouet classics, you’ll have a plethora of candles to choose from for your spouse, your boss or (of course) to just to keep for yourself. Because I am obsessed with my “Evergreen”- scented Dom Perignon candle, you should have one too, right?! R I G H T.
GIVEAWAY ITEM: (1) Dom Perignon candle in “Evergreen” scent. [RETAIL VALUE: $50 – ]
Mr. B’s Luminaries is just ridiculously delicious. Since having a huge success with his hand-poured, natural soy wax candles, owner Shem Gott has since kicked it into overdrive with his AH-mazing handmade soaps. He brilliantly uses ingredients like grape seed, hazelnut, olive and coconut oil, cocoa and shea butter, and my favorites – tea tree, lavender and peppermint essential oils. Translation: these beauties smell heavenly. Oh, and bonus – they work on your body and your hair. Because I’m obsessed with my set, Shem and I are giving away a set!
GIVE AWAY ITEM: (1) “Soap Sampler Set” which includes a 6oz Lavender Tea Tree Charcoal Face and Body Soap, a 6 oz Peppermint Sea Mud Face and Body Soap, and a 6 oz Rosemary Hair and Body Shampoo Bar. [RETAIL VALUE: $20 – ]
Olivia Nelson constructs unique, heirloom-quality accessories by hand using luxury materials. While she primarily crafts stunning bridal pieces, she’s also well known for her “Holiday Boutique“, where she practically gives away some of the most beautiful, well-made headbands I’ve ever seen (or worn). I personally own the Donner in black and, in all sincerity, every.single.time I wear it I end up writing her website down to at least five women. I wear it across my forehead with my hair down, or to the side with a messy bun. It’s my go-to when I want to switch things up! Her Holiday Boutique packs extra punch because owner, Jaclyn Nelson, offers some absolutely ridiculous pricing on these gems: 1 for $20, 2 for $35, 3 for $45 or 4 for $55. Yep. I know. AH-MAZING.
GIVEAWAY ITEM: (1) Headband of your choice (and any color combo available at the time you place your order) from her Holiday Boutique. [RETAIL VALUE: $20 – ]
Subsidy Shades might just be one of the most heartfelt small businesses I’ve ever come across. Melissa, a married mother of one adopted little girl, started this stylish online sunglasses boutique in 2014 to raise funds to continue supporting her daughter’s birth family, and to prepare for their second adopted baby boy due this holiday season! (YAY!) If you think she’s awesome, wait ’till you check out her shades. There are tons to choose from with simple classics like these gold Aviators, to sassy-chic beauties like these Crystal Chloe’s (I’ve personally ordered both). Since I’m so obsessed with my black Harlow sunnies from her Winter 2014 Collection, we’re giving away a pair!
GIVEAWAY ITEM: (1) Harlow sunglasses in any color available at the time you place your order [RETAIL VALUE: $12 – ]

ScissorMill has to be one of my all-time favorite Etsy shops. Many of you will remember the personalized watch box I recommended on my stocking stuffer idea post that went viral – it was a huge hit and we’d like to send a big thanks to all who bought it two years ago! With a solid 4.9 star rating out of 3,906 reviews and over 20,000+ sales to-date, these guys are killing the game. Translation: they make cool, unique, quality stuff for just about everyone on your gift giving list. My current crushes are the custom ammo can and trio of “Wife”, “Mom”, “Superwoman” custom stemless wine glasses I had made – the latter one I had made for me, obvi. 😉 My husband is OBSESSED with his ammo can, especially the fact that it will be a great hand-me-down for our son one day! And, can we just talk about those wine glasses?! BEST. THINGS. EVA. My friends over at ScissorMill and I love both so much, that we’re giving away one of EACH!
Pretty Print Shop is pretty darn cool, y’all. Between chic premade logos, inspirational printables and super sweet mugs, Hannah has an adorable set-up with unique gifts for folks year-round. HOWEVER, if you’re a die-hard, can’t-stop-eating-it, won’t-stop-dreaming-about-it pumpkin fan, her “Pumpkin Spice & All Things Nice” sweatshirt is E V E R Y T H I N G. I know the majority of my readers are pumpkin lovers like me, so Hannah and I have decided to feed your addiction by giving one of these babies away to a lucky winner!
GIVEAWAY ITEM: (1) “Pumpkin Spice & All Things Nice” sweatshirt [RETAIL VALUE: $35 – ]
Amazon Gift Cards
Amazon Gift Cardshave to be my all-time favorite gift to give AND to get (especially get – hint, hint)! I use them to purchase waaaaayyy too many Downton Abbey Instant Video Episodes (side note: always download the UK version – they’re longer episodes!), boxed sets of books (like my personal fav – The Divergent Trilogy) and of course, random stuff I swear to my husband is necessary for my child’s development (this could be debatable). 😉 Because I’m super-crazy-joyfully obsessed with Amazon, I’m personally giving away a $50 Amazon Ornament Tin gift card to one lucky reader!
GIVEAWAY ITEM: (1) $50 Amazon Ornament Tin gift card [RETAIL VALUE: $50 – ]
SimpleStrand is a new, handmade jewelry line whose mission is to simplify your accessories in a beautiful, natural way, using gorgeous stones and tassels. From her Gold Nugget Stud Earrings to her Better Than Your X cuffs, owner Tess Scarborough has a knack for creating unique pieces that are bound to shine bright inside your besties stocking! But it’s her Way to GEO necklace that’s won my heart (and wardrobe) over! I wear it so much that we’re giving one away to a lucky winner!
GIVEAWAY ITEM: (1) Way to GEO necklace [RETAIL VALUE: $35 – ]

Hope Heals is more than an inspirational shop – it’s a movement that’s changing the world. After suffering a massive brainstem stroke at just 26 years old, Katherine Wolf was not expected to live – but she did. The past 6 years she and her husband and son have poured out blood, sweat and tears as Katherine has fought courageously for her “new normal”. Since HOPE is what’s gotten her though, she and her husband, Jay, are committed to spreading that message to anyone and everyone they possibly can through speaking engagements, blogging and opening up their Hope Heals Shop. Their uplifting Hope Heals Tote bag is my go-to when I need to load up after a morning at Trader Joes and Target! The tote itself is made of laminated jute and the handles are made from cotton webbing – super sturdy! But I think my favorite part about this bag is knowing that it’s made in Calcutta, India with the intention of providing work to women fleeing sex trafficking while promoting fair trade. Since I can’t stop using mine, I think it’s safe to say you should have a chance at having one too!
GIVEAWAY ITEM: (1) Hope Heals Tote [RETAIL VALUE: $25 -]

Origrami is the coolest thing to happen to me since I downloaded the Instagram app on my phone. Long story short: this Sydney, Australia based husband and wife team created a ridiculously easy website (and app) that allows you to print your favorite memories from Instagram. I’ve ordered from them several times, and each time I’m blown away by the quality of the photos and the gorgeous, heavy cardstock they’re printed on. Oh, and they offer FREE standard International Airmail shipping worldwide on all orders, y’all. If you’re looking for a super unique stocking stuffer – slip a printable gift card in with your typical hodgepodge of gum and candy and prepare for a total. freak. out. from the recipient. Because the founders of this dream-come-true company are THE BEST, they’re giving away one Retroprint pack (36 retro prints on 4″x5″ matte premium cards) and one Squareprint pack (34 square prints on 4″x4″ matte premium cards) to two lucky winners!
GIVEAWAY ITEM: (1) Retroprint pack and (1) Squareprint pack. This goes to two separate winners; one winner gets the Retroprint pack and another winner gets the Squareprint pack. [RETAIL VALUE: $23.95 and $21.95, respectively]
Divergenthas to be one of my all-time favorite trilogies, y’all. To say I’m obsessed might be an understatement. I tried to avoid putting it on my holiday must-have list this year because I was afraid my friends would commit me somewhere – that’s how obsessed I am. Don’t even ask me how many times I saw it in the theater. 😉 But if I’m going to be true to myself (sigh), I’ve got to add it to this year’s list. You can buy the trilogy here, but today I’m personally giving away the movie on Blu-ray because, well, I’m obsessed. #noughsaid
GIVEAWAY ITEM: (1) Blu-ray copy of Divergent [RETAIL VALUE: $39.99 ]
You can order a copy on the Blu-ray here!

The Art of Manliness – Manvotionals: Timeless Wisdom and Advice on Living the 7 Manly Virtueshas to be one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a long time.

The book is divided into 7 Manly Virtues: Manliness, Courage, Industry, Resolution, Self-Reliance, Discipline and Honor. It’s quite literally the perfect gift for your husband, boyfriend, son, or even your boss. Because I think men are awesome, I’m personally giving one away!

Jamberry Nails are all the rave, y’all. I would be remiss not to include them since so many of my readers lurve them. The company was started in 2010 after three sisters were sick and tired of paying salon prices for manicures that chipped after just a few days (can I get an amen?!). Their solution? A super easy, cost-effective DIY, at-home application mani/pedi for just about anyone’s taste. Oh, and it lasts 2-3 weeks! There are tons and tons of designs. Since I’m not a consultant, I’m officially referring y’all to my girlfriend Stephanie Allen’s personal Jamberry link to place your orders! Because I’ve fallen (hard) for them, we’re giving away one mani/pedi set to a lucky lady!

Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes by Younique have totally taken over my newsfeed, and for good reason. This water resistant mascara is applied by a simple three-step process which combines Transplanting Gel and Natural Fibers to help create the appearance of thickness and volume to your existing lashes. After listening to several close friends rave about them, I decided to give them a shot. And. I. LOVE. Them. My friend Melissa has her own product page through their website where you can purchase a set for yourself, your girlfriends or your sweet mama for the holidays. Oh, and I love that they have a “Love It Guarantee” so there’s really no harm in trying them out! Thanks to Melissa, we’re giving a way one set!
