Holiday Gift Guide & Black Friday Deals

Image Map
With Black Friday Sales upon us, it's time to release this little holiday gift guide for the 2014 holiday season. Please keep in mind that you can select different variations of each item because this is just for inspirational purposes. You don't have to purchase Christian Louboutin Shoes or a Louis Vuitton Wallet because it may not necessarily be in everyone's budget, but that's okay! If that girl loves shoes, or if that guy really needs a new wallet, there are great deals starting this weekend and I'm sure you'll be able to find a great pair of heels or a high quality leather wallet for a steal! Whether it's for that special guy or girl, a sister, brother, friend, or coworker, I have curated a list of items that will hopefully help you out in this very difficult time of the year. Gift giving! This image map is shopable so if you see something you like, click away! You can also shop my selected pieces at the end of the post with additional links to some really great ideas. Read more to get details about my gift guide, special discounts/promotional codes, Black Friday Sales and so much more.

From candles and funny mugs to designer purses and fancy cameras, I'm really hoping that a lot of you will be able to find this list helpful. However, let's keep in mind the true spirit of the holidays, counting our blessings and enjoying the company we have. But, I mean, great presents don't hurt either! In addition to these gifts, DIY baked goods are also wonderful ideas. I'm excited to start shopping for my loved ones and decorating the house for the holidays. I've included Black Friday Deals into this post so you'll find some of my favorite links, sales, and discount codes listed below. I'll be updating this if I stumble upon any other discounts and sales. Have a great holiday weekend everyone, I'm definitely thankful for each and every one of you.
