It’s been so much fun taking over Woodfield Mall’s Instagram account to share my favorite holiday gifts of the season. A quick trip from the city, and over 2 million square feet of retailers – Woodfield is my go to shopping destination (Check out their new food court!) Whether you’re still struggling to find the perfect pick, or simply waited until the last minute (raises hand) I hope you find this guide helpful as I navigate gifts for him, her and the kiddos.
Make sure to follow along on Woodfield Mall IG today as I show you my favorite picks throughout the day for kids!
GIFTS FOR HER
This popular Morphe rose gold brush set is a best seller. The perfect beginner set and looks beyond chic on the bathroom vanity. Everyone raves about the quality and they’re affordable! The perfect stocking stuffer and gift for any beauty lover. Don’t forget to add a palette! My current favorite is ‘Brunch Babe Eyeshadow Palette’ It has wearable, creamy shades for any time of day. Brush sets vary from $12-$165 depending on the level/collection. My favorite pick for her! A great stocking stuffer, too.
Like a blanket, but way better! This adorable quilted cardigan will keep you cute and cozy all season long. Love the 2 side pockets (comes in 3 colors) and the perfect winter staple for any gal. Pair with leggings before a work-out, or pair with jeans for an oversized OOTD. Definitely a favorite right now! Price: $64.95
Would it even be the holiday season without @Lush bath bombs in your stocking? I’ve always been a fan of this company for so many reasons. Absolutely no animal testing, charitable (they give back) and everything is handmade! Beyond that, everything is 100% vegetarian, and only use the freshest ingredients. From bath products, to shower gel, hair, face, body and fragrances — it’s a one stop shop for everyone on your list. I already picked up these cute candy cane bath bombs for an extra flair of holiday cheer. Relax! Price: $5.95 (candy cane) and up!
These Tommy Bahama 14-K gold hoops are perfect for everyday wear. I just adore the Hawaiian handcrafted artistry and the timeless style. The reviews nod to the perfect size (not too small & not too big) so you can even keep them on during workouts if you please. I can’t get enough of dainty jewelry, and these are certainly no exception. Only $40! Perfect for the special woman in your life.
The Microsoft Surface Pro makes it easy to work and play virtually anywhere. Up to 13.5 hours of battery life, laptop mode, studio mode (without keyboard) and tablet mode. Notably the best in-class laptop with the versatility of a tablet. Ultra slim, and light — under 2 pounds (easily fits in your purse). Absolutely perfect for the boss babe in your life. Price: $899 (prices vary on model, style)
Polished, sophisticated and the perfect option for an evening out or everyday. (Love a versatile bag) It literally goes with everything in your wardrobe, and the gold hardware is chic. The adjustable chain strap can convert into a cross-body, and the interior can easily store your must-haves (phone, wallet, keys, etc) which is so important! Definitely timeless, so will not go out of style. Price: $246
GIFTS FOR HIM
These are the Timberland originals! This waterproof boot was designed more than 40 years ago and remains a best-seller. With over 1500 5-star reviews, I knew it was a must. The anti-fatigue technology provides all day comfort and support. Pair casually (I prefer sweats) but they look just as good with denim and a button down. Price: $190
The perfect sweater to cozy up, or wear on date night. The material is beyond comfortable (they’ll live in this one!) and the cable knit detailing seals the deal. Available in 5 colors (S-XXXL) Price: $135
The world most powerful console with immersive 4K gaming. Environments and characters are more realistic than ever, with more detail and smoother animations. Xbox live allows you to connect with friends/rivals/teammates in the best global gaming community ever. If you want to win best gift of the year — this will do it! Tag your Xbox buddies below! Price: $499
Who doesn’t love sweatpants? After a long day, there’s nothing like putting on a cozy pair of sweats. These joggers have been crafted for easy, stylish everyday wear (and you don’t even have to feel guilty for leaving the house in them). They have a comfortable waistline with a drawstring, ribbed cuffs and the iconic logo beneath the pocket. The 2 zippers are the added bonus — hold your belongings in style. Price: $48.65 (on sale)
This sofa feels like butter! Whether you’re looking for a quiet afternoon in, or entertaining friends – the Emory collection sofa brings irresistible comfort with a fresh, modern feel. This will last you years and years (the gift that keeps on giving) with easy-care cotton blend slipcovers to keep things lasting awhile! It’s the ultimate movie marathon couch, and perfect for the entire family without sacrificing style. Everyone wins! Price: $2,399
GIFTS FOR THE KIDS
If you guys haven’t made a trip in Blocks to Bricks yet, you’re 100% missing out with the littles! The world’s first and only museum celebrating the history of three-dimensional building toys. I couldn’t even drag my 15 month old out of here! We ended up getting her the ‘smartmax magnetics’ because (again) we couldn’t pry her away from these! I just love watching her little brain explore and get creative. PRICE: $29.99 (prices vary with sizing)
Chicago winters are cold, and UGG boots are always my go-to for cozy, stylish perfection. Just picked up a pair for my baby girl, and I may need to grab the same style for me! The chic bow detail is the cherry on top! They have a handful of styles, so make sure to check-out in-store. PRICE: Range from $54.99-149.99 (depending on size, style)
How adorable is Minnie’s farmer’s market? @DisneyStore has an adorable collection of Minnie-themed fun this holiday season including: an ice-cream set, cash register and farmer’s market stand. It will look just darling in their bedroom/playroom. Can’t beat the price! Oh, and who can resist Minnie Mouse? PRICE: $39.95
H&M is one of my favorite places to shop for all things baby. I’ve always raved about the quality (some of the softest clothes ever) and the prices can’t be beat. I just picked up this adorable faux fur coat for the holidays, and it’s buttery soft. Comes in multiple colors, but couldn’t resist the girly baby pink. They also have the cutest accessories (tights, headbands, bows, etc) Truly, a one-stop-shop for holiday looks for the entire family! PRICE: $17.99
Build a Bear Workshop will make any child smile. Not only can kids pick out the perfect stuffed animal (anything from unicorns, bunnies, bears, reindeers, dragons, etc) but they can actually pick out the clothes/accessories, add sounds/scents and completely customize it to their own choosing. It’s so fun watching them create, imagine and inspire — the staff is amazing with kids (definitely important). I went as a kid years ago, and still remember the experience. A true fun family affair. PRICE: starts at $24.99+ (prices vary on additions)
I’ve been a fan of Janie and Jack for awhile! My sister actually got her son’s take-home outfit from here (they’re famous for it!) I have a 15 month baby girl, and couldn’t resist this turtleneck bow sweater. It’s really soft, and festive for anything holidays. Another reason why I love Janie and Jack — they make amazing hand-me-downs. The quality won’t suffer because of the impeccable fine materials. Make sure to check-out the sale section, too! I always find the best deals! PRICE: $34.99 // I’m also including this adorable cable knit zip-up for the little man in your life. Can you even handle the cuteness? Grandpa in training? PRICE: $45.99
