Sew Holiday: Items I swear by that make great gifts

When flipping through blogposts I always see a billion gift guides during the holidays. But, I've noticed most of these gifts people suggest are just things they see online that are cute. Which is great, but today I wanted to share items I swear by that would make great gifts! All of these items I own and have used a ton and would 100% recommend to you to give as gifts this holiday season. 

Away suitcase | If you have a jetsetter on your shopping list look no further then the Away suitcase. I know, I know, this suitcase has been hyped up by bloggers basically everywhere. But, this is one thing I 100% agree is worth the hype. I purchased this suitcase about 2 months ago and it has changed the way I traveled! I picked up the bigger carry-on and it is big enough to fit a weeks worth of clothes, but still fits in the overhead bin. It also has a built in charger, which I think everyone can agree that is amazing for long layovers or if your flight is delayed. All in all, would totally recommend this suitcase as a gift, or a gift to yourself.

The Bigger Carry-On Luggage Set

Peaches Two Faced Palette | This has been my go-to palette of fall. I've been getting sooooo many compliments on this eyeshadow whenever I wear it! From stores to a worker at Five Guys, everyone loves these shades! At first I didn't know if I could pull it off, but they really are very flattering. The palette features peach shades, pinks, and some orangey browns. Not to mention it smells like peaches and is oh-sew adorably packaged!

Alex and Ani bracelets | Pretty sure everyone in their mother now owns an Alex and Ani bracelet, but I still love them. I got into Alex and Ani bracelets back in 2013 (I like to consider myself an OG fan), and now I have a TON. From Disney, to horoscopes, to Saints Alex and Ani really has something for everyone. Plus they are reasonably priced which make them great stocking stuffers or a gift for your girlfriend or sister.

Stoney Clover Lane pouches | Another great gift for a girl on the go, or a girl who needs some organization, are Stoney Clover Lane pouches! I recently purchased a pouch from them during a sale and I love it! I keep it in my suitcase to keep small things organized. The great thing about their pouches are you can customize them with patches on their website. So you can create the perfect customized gift.

Aerie sweaters | I've recently been loving Aerie sweaters. There is a great chenille sweater that would make a great gift! The sweaters I already own | Navy ChenilleDeep Burgundy Chenille (it's like a rose bronze color!)

Shinola Watch | I recently picked up a Shinola watch from their outlet store in Aurora (it was such a good deal FYI), and I have been loving it since! Both my mom and brother had Shinola watches before I did and they also love them. I think these watches make a great gift for really anyone. They are on the pricey side, but if you can find an outlet you can score one for under $300 if not cheaper! Mine was $150, originally $500+!!! Craziness!

Emily Ley Planner
 | My go-to organization companion, my Emily Ley planner. These planners make great gifts for students, mom's on the go, or for any working women. I'm using the weekly planner for work and it is great! You've heard me rave about these planners before so I will stop, but I had to mention them for this post because they would make a great gift.

Henri Bendel Jetsetter Bag | This bag is the best bag I own! The Henri Bendel Jetsetter backpack is the perfect bag for any girl. It can be converted to a crossbody, backpack, or has short straps. This makes it perfect for travel or for everyday. This has been my go-to bag since I picked up the mini in New York this summer. But, it also comes in a larger size which is also great, but I find the mini is a better fit for me personally!
