I love this time of year... Giving gifts is a love language of mine, and I have so much fun scouring independent local shops as well as larger online retailers for the perfect present. I keep a running note on my phone with random gift ideas throughout the year, and get excited when I really have an excuse to shop for the people I love.
Now that Thanksgiving is officially over, I'm thinking about wishlists - both for myself and others. I'm a sucker for flash sale sites like Rue La La, especially around the holidays. It always feels good to get designer items for deeply discounted prices, and I found several ideas at Rue La La this weekend (and even snagged a couple of Theory sweaters for myself). They have recently featured other favorites like Elizabeth and James, Missoni and Vince. Here are some of the things on my gift list - you can also create your own wishlist via Facebook and shop directly from it - like I did here.
