Every year when it comes time to think through what to give my loved ones around the holidays, I always end up on the Urban Outfitters website. It’s one place where I can always find a little something for everyone, especially within my budget for the holiday season.
I’ve been shopping at UO for I don’t know, 10+ years? I know all of their in-house brands by heart and love their gifts as much as I love their clothing selection. I was really excited to pick up this red bell sleeve top for a few holiday events that I have this next week. It’s a beautiful shade of red and I’m really excited to pair it with a pair of wide leg trousers! I also wore this green ballon sleeve top to a holiday part last weekend and both are under $60.
If I had to choose though, my favorite gifts at UO are their gifts for entertaining. We’ve been getting into dirty martinis around our apartment (with hand stuffed blue cheese olives of course) and the importance of having a cocktail set has become a real thing. If I can pick something up that matches our overall aesthetic you better believe I will. I love that this version is gold – it’s also a great gift for a host or someone who just moved into a new place. Once we settled into our spot it quickly became our favorite weekend activity to have company over. Setting up my computer on a shelf isn’t ideal for our guests, nor the safety of my Macbook. My old roommate had a Wonderboom speaker that we used to pair our phones to regularly at home since it’s a bluetooth speaker. It was perfectly loud for our apartment and also waterproof in case you wanted to listen to something via your phone in the shower. It doesn’t take up too much space and is an amazing gift for someone who loves music.
I shared some thoughtful gift ideas earlier this week, but I love being able to share or help people capture memories. I’ve been interested in photography ever since my grandfather bought me my very first camera. While I enjoy all mediums of photos, there’s something so old fashioned and lovable about taking photos with an Instax camera. In an age where everything is highly edited and staged, I love the idea that it is what it is and you can capture people impromptu. We’re excited to use ours to kick off our year of being engaged!
I also love finding secret santa/white elephant gifts through Urban Outfitters because they have the best mix of funny and useful items. Whether it’s a gift for a co-worker who loves avocados or a funny ornament for your sibling, it’s hands down the best place to find something they’ll love within your budget.
