Charlotte Gift Guide: For Her

After tomorrow is Thanksgiving (what!) which means that it's time to start mentally preparing yourself for what gifts to buy for the holidays.  If you're anything like me, then you probably like buying gifts for other people over yourself, which is why I love creating my own gift guides to share with all of you.  Since I'm starting to get accustomed to my new city, I figured what better way than to begin with some of my favorites from the local boutiques in the area. There's something to be said about picking up a gift that is so unique to the place where you live.  I personally love supporting the community around me because they usually have the most authentic (& best!) merchandise.
one: Mallory's candles are artisanal natural soy candles that come in a variety of scents including banana nut bread, fig, green tea & cucumber, red currant, and much more.  These candles are on sale for ONLY $5! You really can't beat that... plus they are all hand made and don't use any additives so that's a win for you & a win for the environment. // $18 $5

two: I stumbled across the lovely website of Evelyn Henson and I immediately fell in love with all of her products.  The gift that caught my eye in particular is this beautiful Charlotte print which highlights the loveliest parts of this lovely city// Starting at $26.50

three: I could never have enough travel mugs. Swoozie's in Charlotte has a vast majority of mugs including my favorite pictured above ("Wifey") I'm also lovin' on "Coffee before Talkie"// $20

four: I am constantly taking pictures of the Charlotte, NC skyline (I mean, it is so beautiful especially lit up at night) which explains why I love this shirt so much by 704 shop// $28

five: My first visit to Lotus boutique was about a week ago on a rainy Tuesday. I was instantly drawn to their elegant pieces, but the unique style of all the sunglasses in particular caught my eye. (You can see my favorite white and orange ones here) but these QUAY steel cat glasses are everything// $37

six: Ah, marble. If I could change every piece of furniture to my house to white marble, I would.  That explains why my laptop & iPhone case are covered in it, and KK Bloom boutique here in Charlotte, NC can satisfy your marble needs with their white iPhone case as well. PS: It never goes out of style// $40

seven: Tassels & fringe are taking over the fashion scene, & this Tangled Up in Tassels necklace is the perfect combination of delicate and simple with the added fashion flare.  You can pick it up from one of my favorite places in town, Julie's// $40
