Christmas with the Girls

Every year I get together with my girlfriends for our Christmas dinner and gift exchange. This Sunday I will be hosting the event at my house. Everyone brings a dish to share and a $30 gift for an exchange. I always find it so hard to shop for this party. First, we don't draw names so I have to find something that anyone of the 14 girls would like. Second, I love to find the gift that you really want, but for some reason would never buy for yourself...

Juicy tubes from Lancome, who wouldn't love 6 brand new tubes of lip gloss...
Chanel bath soap. Run don't walk to Nordstrom because once this soap is gone, it is gone until next December. The smell is unbelievable and you will not have to wear any perfume. It is that good and that strong. Another bonus, your bathroom will also smell amazing just from having the soap in your shower...
Lancome eye kit. I love this kit, it comes with mascara, lash base, eyeliner, and of course eye make up remover to take it all off. Everything you need for the perfect "going out lashes"...

From JCrew I found these so cute and so swanky iphone cases, I am really loving the glitter...
and from the gap, a little clutch with a little pizzaz...

and the winter hat that will get you noticed...
and last but not least, and not because I want a pair, but the lululemon running gloves...see, you might have to look a little harder, but you can find great things for under $30.
ho ho ho


  1. Cute ideas! Personally, I would want the soap or the running gloves. (Not b/c I run...just b/c they are cute and look warm!) I hope you share what you end up choosing and what you got!

  2. Great finds Jill!!! I have a couple of them and would LOVE it if someone gave me any of the items on your list!!! Loving the Chanel soap. So decadent! I would never buy it for myself. But would love to receive it as a gift!!! I have the gold glitter JCrew phone case and It is fabulous!!!

  3. Hmmm this is a hard choice! Your description kind of sold me on the Chanel soap-- I also love the lipgloss and eye kit! Have fun on Sunday!! :) xo Lisa

  4. Wow, you found some great picks for $30. I'd love to get the 6 juicy gloss tubes, the eye kit or the little pouch from the Gap. That's a great tradition that you and your girlfriends have. I think I may start a tradition with my girlfriends too, because everyone is so busy during the year. Great idea. Happy Holidays! :-)

  5. I love the Chanel soap and the Gap clutch! Great choices:)

  6. Wow those are all fabulous items and all for 30 or less I love it. I won't be able to get to nordstroms until I go home to michigan for Christmas. Lets hope I can send my mum out to get that Chanel soap lol. xo

  7. I would love to get any of these gifts! Great choices!
