gift ideas


Today is the day to start doing your holiday shopping! It seems like there’s a deal for nearly everything and everyone who’s on your list. I find that it can get super overwhelming so I’m rounding up my favorite stores (and the most popular ones from the blog) here so that the best of the best is easy to find.

(I’m also super nosey, hehe, so definitely let me know in a comment what you get and if you found a great price!)

Black Friday Deals

DAGNE DOVER // 20% off your order with “GETDAGNE” at checkout

These are the ULTIMATE bags for girls on the go who like to stay organized. I featured these years ago on the blog and recently toured the headquarters to get a peek at the new and improved bags. Obsessed doesn’t even begin to describe it.

(Hint hint: moms, this is a great gift for a soon-to-be or recent graduate in the market for a great work bag!)

TORY BURCH // 30% off orders of $250 or more with code “THANKS”

Spoil your sister or mom (or yourself, no judgment here) with a something special from Tory. And just as a MAJOR FYI, the riding boots drop all the way down to $207. This is the lowest I’ve ever seen them.

J. CREW // 40% off EVERYTHING with code “HOLIDAY”

I don’t think you need me to tell you how amazing it is, but this is J. Crew’s biggest sale ever. Not to be missed. I’m getting this sweater and this one for Gar.

KATE SPADE // 30% off order with “THANKFUL” plus the surprise sale!

I’m personally eyeing the workout clothes and the sleepwear– I love the navy bow pajama set.

TUCKERNUCK // 20% off everything with “give20”, 25% off $500+ orders with “give25”, and 30% off $1000 orders with “give30”

This is really a one-stop shop for everyone on your list. Major hint here: the sale includes Canada Goose coats.

NORDSTROM // Various Savings

A ton of items are on sale and it certainly takes some digging, but it’s worth it! Loving these Sorel boots and this Burberry coat!

AMAZON // Various Savings

Amazon is another one where it’s worth spending some time going through to find the best prices on items you want/need.

LL BEAN // 20% off when you spend $50 with “THANKS20”

Bean Boots should be at the top of everyone’s list (men or women!) and the slippers shouldn’t be missed either.

ABERCROMBIE // 50% off the entire store

Their sweater selection right now is SO GOOD.

LILLY PULITZER // Gifts with Purchase

No special discount codes, but the gifts with purchases are super, super cute. Don’t forget to check out Lilly’s selection of gifts under $50!

WAITING ON MARTHA // Turkey10 for 10% off orders $0-$50, Turkey15 for 15% off orders $51-$100, Turkey20 for 20% off orders $101-$225, Turkey25 for 25% off orders $226-$350, Turkey30 for 30% off orders $351+

Find the very best selection of fun and quirky gifts, perfect for mom, coworkers, and your favorite hostesses.

MARK AND GRAHAM // 25% off your order with “FRIENDS”

They have the CUTEST monogrammed gifts for literally everyone on your list. These are going to be my go-to gift for my besties.

Great post! On Wednesday (i feel like sales came so early this year) I bought the adorable Halle Open-Toe Suede Sandals from Lord & Taylor. They were full price everywhere else but L&T had them on sale! Happy shopping!

Hi Carly! Tory Burch sent me a $50 dollar gift card in the mail because we are frequent shoppers (guilty haha) so I got a black pair of Tory Burch Jolie Riding Boots for $167! I actually want to cry! Hope your Black Friday shopping is going well 🙂

Taylor Kay

I am so happy you made this post. I’ve had my eye on a pair of Jolie riding boots for years but couldn’t ever convince myself to buy them – but the moment I saw that they were on sale for $207, I immediately ordered a pair! So excited!


J.Crew Factory site is still having a sale (40% of everything) and an additional 20% at check with the code “whoagifts” if you spend over $100. I got 5 items for $90!
