We received some of these products to review. All opinions are strictly our own.
Yes, we’ve done (and are still doing) some holiday gift guides, but here at Champagne Living we decided to choose our very favorites this holiday to share in a post to make your last minute giving easier.
We love a good subscription service, and our favorite this season is one that’s been a staple for so many years. There is nothing like escaping with a good book, and the gift of reading is an unexpected treat. For the rest of the holiday season, six-month subscriptions are $10 off and 12-month subscriptions are $30 off. I compared the prices to my bookstore, and even without the $ off, the books are so much less.
Your recipient can choose a new book each month (or pass on a month if they don’t like the selection), so there’s no getting books that aren’t on their “MUST READ” list.
Special offer for book lovers: Give a subscription and get a free month for yourself. 3-month subscriptions start at under $45
I’m totally loving the gift sets that Fresh has created this holiday season, and I’ll be giving two of my favorites to my favorite people. The Sugar Lip Prep ‘n’ Paint with everything you need to have a beautiful pout all packaged together in a fun box that’s ready to decorate with the enclosed pencils, and the Holiday Glow Skincare Set to get her ready for the harsh winter weather. Available at Sephora and fresh.com, she’ll love them! Gift sets start at under $40.
I love a good coffee table book, and you can’t go wrong with Lost in Las Vegas. Featuring photos, a history and untold stories from Las Vegas fashion designer Ermelinda Manos, the book captures a woman’s journey to some famous and not-so-famous locations throughout Downtown Las Vegas, traveling with her most prized possessions – her fabulous wardrobe and vintage jewels. $39.98
I have to admit, that I hadn’t jumped on the drone bandwagon until NOW! Perfect for the traveler or those who are selfie-obsessed, this small drone fits in your pocket, pocketbook or the palm of your hand and is smaller than your mobile phone. Weighing in at a mere 2 ounces, the flying camera features a 5-megapixel camera and a 4 GB SD memory card and syncs with your mobile phone for easy photo sharing. Available at Best Buy, Amazon and their own site for around $340.
5. Urban Leaf
I adore the world’s smallest garden, that’s perfect for my kitchen windowsill. It’s a fun way to recycle your bottles (ahem…my WINE bottles), bring life to your kitchen, and fresh herbs to your recipes. You simply insert the Urban Leaf bottle in YOUR bottle with water and the water in the bottle will allow your plant to water itself for up to a month at a time (great for brown thumbs like me). At only $22 it’s a great gift for just about anyone.
