Smarty Pants Holiday Gift Guide 2013 & No Nonsense Giveaway!

3:17:00 PM

The time has come! All of our holidays love to come along at once, before you know it Christmas and Thanksgiving are here. Personally I'm thinking, hold the hell up Christmas and calm your ass. But, the smarty pants shoppers out there know that it's best to get you're shopping done early if you want to save money and make sure you get everything on your list.

The first thing to do, if you're buying any fashion items, is to know what's in this season. You have got to do your research if you don't want to get that look after someone has opened their gift that says, wow thanks but uh... already got three of these last year. No one wants to feel like they've missed the mark. The point of gift giving is to make someone happy and to have them know that you put some thought into their gifts. It's not how much money you spend, but what you spend your money on. Make sense?

To get you started, I have a few items on my lists this holiday season that I would love to share with you. They're great stocking stuffers as well. Get creative and you'll have some awesome gifts ready to give away.

1. No Nonsense tights & leggings:

I absolutely love this company and their awesome array of colors and styles when it comes to tights and leggings. They've got corduroy leggings!

The best thing about these is that they come in all colors and sizes so that you can mix and match when it gets chilly. I've also got a special giveaway of these tights and leggings (check the end of the this post for ways to win).

2. Benefit's sampler gift sets:

I absolutely love these because you can try out every piece of the collection. They have plenty more than what I show you here. This set is perfect for me because I have been dying to try their Hello Flawless foundation. I already use the pore minimizer and the That Girl primer. These little baby travel sizes go a long way.

Thank the big man himself for these gift sets from Origins. I love to out all their new facial creams, washes and eye serums galore. Whatever you need all year long are in these kits. The only thing is that they sell out really fast. But you get everything you want that you normally don't want to buy full sizes of. 

$28, mark.
$26, mark.
The brand mark. has some cute accessories for the holiday season that support some great causes. My favorites are their fashion rings and bracelets. If you're looking for some cute little stocking stuffers, there are the way to go since they are individually boxed and have some bulk so you don't feel like you're going empty handed to a party when you're on the discounted side.

5. DIY Christmas Cookie Favor. idea. 
For all of you looking to put something fun and cutsie together for your Christmas parties, look into something like mason jar cookie mix favors. All it takes is putting cookie mix in a mason jar in a few layers, top them off with mixing spoons for garnish or a pretty bow. 

Julep has some sweet sets of colors for your nails. All girls love choices. Changing up your nail color every couple of days makes you feel all feminine and well, polished. These are a great holiday sets to include if you've purchased gift cards or know some girlie girls. 

7. Tieks.

Ruby Red Patent, $195
I know many of you have discovered the beauty and craftsmanship that goes into these adorable shoes, but these are my top fav gift. The new holiday frenzy has been released. Oh yeah. These shoes are expensive, running anywhere from $145-195 a pair. Cool thing is, Tieks is hooking you up with a discount on these babies. For every person you refer via email, they send you a five percent discount (max 20% off).

8. Diamond Beach Wood Box from Bazaar

Check out this lovely piece of storage! This is on the cheaper side and goes lovely on a girls desk. You can store all of your accessories in it and it looks very modern, like a piece of art. It's only $15!
