It's beginning to look a whole lot like Christmas. And we could not be more excited!
And while our Stateside readers are likely still recovering from Thanksgiving, and our Southern Hemisphere couples are just in the throws of summer, in this part of the world, we couldn't be more ready for mince pies, festive movies and of course, wish lists for Santa Claus.
Which is why we've decided to kick off our Holiday Gift Guide series today, not just to get us all into the seasonal spirit, but so you can have your shopping done early (and your own gift requests in ahead of time too!)
Oh, and little note – there's still time to snag some Cyber Monday deals from our Black Friday shopping coverage!
Over the next week or two, we'll be bringing you lots of gorgeous gift ideas for the grooms in your life, your parents (and in-laws), the little ones in your bridal party, and the not so little ones too.
But first up, we simply had to get things started with… The Brides!
Whether you're shopping for a bride you know, or yourself, your BFF or your other half, we reckon there's something in here every B2B (that's bride-to-be!) or newlywed, will adore.
Here's a few of our favourite things to get you inspired (oh and scroll down for our super-handy shoppable picks at the bottom!)…
Row 2: National Parks Blanket by Pendleton via Overstock.com, Tiny Dancer Studs by Catbird, Living in Bali by Reto Guntli and Anita Lococo via Net-a-Porter, Tiger Mat Hand Tufted by Jaipur Rug via Etsy.
Camellia Heels by Loeffler Randall via BHLDN
Disco Ankle Boots by Farylrobin via Anthropologie
We think we've got every kind of bride covered, what do you reckon?
For the fit lady in your life, think headphones and classic trainers, the flash packer will adore this Herschel Supply Co. rollaway or a chic passport cover, or if she's a super organised bride, get her a gorgeous planning book, a cute notebook or a fab watch.
Of course, jewelry, handbags, candles, make-up and perfume are always appreciated, but if your pal is super excited about being a wife, why not bag her some official bride merch? Think Mrs sleep masks and accessories, a cute piece of wifey bling, and or a loved-up tote.
Don't forget to support local and start-up businesses too – we're a tad obsessed with vintage & handmade goods from Canadian site Folk Fortune, wedding decor from UK site Brooklyn Bridal, homewares & accessories from South African site Mash Boutique, art & gifts from Aussie site Maker's Mrkt and lingerie and fashion bits from USA site Dakota Jinx. All are absolutely gorgeous, and laden down with pretty purchases! Etsy is always a handy go-to for crafty buys too.
And, just because we know holiday shopping can be tough (and time consuming!) we've put together some of our most prized finds in this easy shoppable widget below.
Happy shopping (and hint dropping!)
