Chic Holiday Gift Guide: Almost All $100 and Under


2013 B&B Holiday Gift List

Giving gifts can be stressful! Here at The Blonde and The Brunette we have got you covered in the gift buying department. Check out our list of favorite budget friendly goodies that we love so much that we have bought them for ourselves!


We are a bit OCD , so we love anything from Rebecca Minkoff, especially  (1) her clever, metallic “Glam Kit” MIA Makeup Pouch $75; (2) the “Life of The Party” (because we always are) Cory Pouch to keep our pretty pennies (and all of our other essentials) tucked away in style. $65; and (3) for us LA girls, her fun “Sunglass Pouch” to protect your sunnies from bumps and bruises in style.


The height of the engagement and wedding season is around the corner, so for the Bride To Be, we love, love, love (as Mr. Darcy might say) this Lanvin Set of 10 Save the Date cards. $80. This chic set of 10 white paper ‘Save the Date’ cards is presented in an elegant box and tied with grosgrain ribbon; they make the perfect gift for brides to be.


Even us working girls want the cutest accessories while we are on the go. Lately we have found ourselves doing old school things like using a pen and writing notes. Two of our favorites are the (5.) Lanvin Love bow-embellished pen $130 and the (6.) Kate Spade Sticky Note Set  $16.


Since we’re also techie buffs that have to listen to our tunes in style,  you can find us at our desks plugged in to (7.) Frends Ella gold-tone earphones $100. The  jewelry-inspired pair is both stylish and functional delivering authentic, natural sound thanks to a 13mm driver. We talk tech! The best part is they are handmade with gold-tone metal details, plus we love the fabric-covered cords and handy travel pouch.

Finally, we lied, we adore the 8.) Rebecca Minkoff Stelle Audio Clutch $399. Together, Stellé Audio and Rebecca Minkoff developed a portable Bluetooth audio product capturing the very essence of Rebecca’s style combined with premium quality audio. Carry it and you really will be the life of the party. Get it! We ‘ve got a theme going.

With Love From LA,
