It’s coming…ready or not!  Christmas is just a few short weeks away, and those gifts aren’t going to buy themselves!  We figured we would brainstorm some kick-ass ideas for you…’cause that’s what belles are for…

We have some ideas for him, her, the techies, the hostess…and we will share them all this week as we prepare to enter the “vortex”.  First up:

Some ideas for her…

Ya know how we are always saying, “remember who you are and where you came from”??  These will help with that:

From A. Jaffe:


the 14k gold version


Choose any location in the world and A. Jaffe will engrave the map and place a diamond where “X marks the spot” for where her heart is (or should be)…(there’s a less expensive sterling version as well)

And from Coordinates Collection (above…we’ve told y’all about these before) use the coordinates of that special place to create a piece that will be all hers

For a comfy, daily-wear bauble, from Mark and Graham, this Ariel Gordon Semi-precious Stone Necklace will be sure to please

 How about polishing up that  ponytail ? Comes in gold or silver . A great stocking stuffer from Nordstrom.

And from BuDhaGirl…we are still big fans of these all-weather bangles…for a bit of mindful glamour!

From our fave belle-friend-owned jewelry store, Croghans, in Charleston, this crowning glory of a ring (above) is perfect for the princess or regal matriarch.

From Nordstrom she will love these Stila “sweet kisses”…an excellent stocking stuffer!


in “pebble”

For the travelin’ belle, Longchamp’s Le Pliage (also available at Nordstrom) is a classic that she will surely love!

and this lux face brush from Tory Burch will be treasured

The Lenora Dame Polar Bear or Orange Puff bag charms from Shopbop will add some whimsy to her adventures

From Shopbop, the Shrimps “Abatha” faux fur coat will keep her warm

And the feet stay warm with these Foxy Sox (also from Shopbop)

Stay tuned…there’s more to come!
