Holiday Gift Ideas (Sunny Side Up)

{Madewell Puff Sleeve Minidress/Over the Knee Boots/Green Faux Accent Pillow – mantel details coming soon!}

How is your holiday shopping coming along!?  To be honest I’m a little behind and need to do some serious catching up with all of the sales going on this weekend!  Decorating has occupied all of my free time (and then some!) but I’m finally wrapping things up in my home and am ready to share it all with you and focus on gift giving for this year.  I’m so excited to be partnering with Nordstrom for this post to share some recent fashion favorites and holiday gift ideas!  It’s no secret that I love organization and one of my favorite things about shopping on-line at Nordstrom during the holidays is how they organize their gift guides.  You can hop on their website and easily find gifts for anyone on your list!  Some of my go-to categories I always head to are: GIFTS FOR HER,  GIFTS FOR HIMGIFTS FOR KIDSHOME GIFTSTECHIE GIFTS.  I also love how they break gifts down in price range.  I do a lot of my holiday shopping at Nordstrom every year and have rounded up so many fun ideas for gifts under $25, gifts under $50 and gifts under $100.  Most of these items are things that I already have and love, things I’ve given as gifts, or things I’m ordering this year for Christmas.  All tried and true favorites!  I hope these ideas are helpful while you are searching for that perfect gift for someone on your list!

Now for a few fun things I’ve been wearing and loving lately!

Holiday Gift Ideas (Sunny Side Up)

This is a closer look at the Madewell wrap dress I was wearing in that first picture.  Isn’t it so fun for the holidays!?  Dressy in a simple and casual way – my favorite. :)  If I’m wearing a dress or skirt in the winter I’m all about over the knee boots!  I love the look of them and then I don’t have to worry about wearing tanner or scaring people with my pale skin. ;)

Holiday Gift Ideas (Sunny Side Up)

Another favorite Madewell dress!  Did you all know I’m a fan of Madewell?  Because I am. :)  This black textured knit dress is adorable!  So comfortable and I love the neck and sleeves.  I like wearing it with this pull back leather belt but you could wear it w/o a belt too.

Holiday Gift Ideas (Sunny Side Up)

{Tie Sleeve Cotton Blend Sweater/Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans/similar Booties}

This cute tie sleeve sweater is so fun for the holidays!  If you’re looking for a beautiful holiday sweater head HERE!  I LOVE Cece tops/sweaters and they have so many fun options!  Here are a few of my favorites… showing them all in green (my personal favorite!) but they also come in red and other colors too. :)

This cute favorite puff sleeve sweater I lived in last Fall/Winter is back in stock and on sale!

{Day Off Hoodie}

Cutest camo hoodie!  I’ve been living in this one.  It’s perfect for lounging with sweats but you can also dress it up with jeans and a little front tuck. :)  Comes in black too!

Holiday Gift Ideas (Sunny Side Up)

{Carey Crew Sweatshirt/Live in Pocket Joggers/Swift Run Sneaker}

Zella does it again!  I love these joggers so when they came out this season in green I was all for it!  This pic doesn’t really show how perfect this Crew sweatshirt is.. it hangs just right and is so cute and comfy!

{Puff Sleeve Sweater}

Oh what’s that?  Another green sweater?  Don’t mind if I do. ;)  LOVE love love this.  Comes in a pretty cream and maroon too!

Holiday Gift Ideas (Sunny Side Up)

{White Turtleneck Sweater}

Love the fit of this pretty white turtleneck sweater.  I adore loose, chunky turtlenecks and Nordstrom has so many fun options in right now!  Here are a few other cute options I have my eye on.. *reading this Kenny? :)

Holiday Gift Ideas (Sunny Side Up)

And last but certainly not least my Happy Glamper Pullover.  I’ve been a huge fan of glamping my whole life so had to snag this.  I love that I can wear it as pjs with joggers or sweats but it’s also cute with jeans.  It’s PJ Salvage so incredibly soft.  I bought it last month and honestly wore it 3 days in a row!  Glamping at its finest. ;)

Holiday Gift Ideas (Sunny Side Up)

{Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss/Ultimate Flip & Ultimate Spoonula/Madewell masks/Plaid Popcorn Bowl/

similar Phone Wipes/Tree Board & Cheese Knife/Pompom Throw/Savor}

These are a few gifts I ordered that were just delivered!  Isn’t this plaid popcorn bowl cute!?  Fun to give with some gourmet popcorn for a gift.  My girls are going to love the lipgloss and I think that pretty pompom throw (25% off by the way!) is going to have to stay at my house.  You know.. so I can test it and make sure it will make a good gift before I order more. ;)

Another fun category I love to hunt for gifts in is ACTIVEWEAR.  As soon as the holidays are over everyone is feeling ready to ditch the endless eating and to get back in shape!  Activewear gifts are helpful motivation.  These are a few fun activewear gift ideas..

Holiday Gift Ideas (Sunny Side Up)

{Ugg Scuffette Slipper/Ugg Fluffette Slipper/Faux Fur Slipper}

Of course we aren’t at the end of the year just yet.  Still plenty of time for endless eating and I’m not complaining about it!  Which is why I’m also hunting for gifts in the COZY category.  :)  Above are my favorite slippers from Nordstrom.  I just rotate these three pairs every day!  All so soft!  And with Thanksgiving just a day away it’s time to pull out the joggers and all things comfy and stretchy.  Here are a few cozy gift items that will also help us all feel better about ourselves through the end of the year until it’s time to wear spandex again. ;)

I hope this round up of fun gifts gave you a few ideas!  Stay healthy and safe, enjoy some holiday shopping and I’ll be back soon with LOTS of Christmas decor. :)

xoxo, Erin

  1. Wow, what a compilation of gift ideas. Thanks for all your hard work pulling these together and modeling your cute clothes. What a labor of love.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you, Erin and your sweet family. I hope you enjoy every minute of it. :)

  2. So many great gift ideas! And the sweaters are all so cute, all in green actually makes it easy to compare the different looks (helps when it’s your favorite color, I know – mine is purple!). Happy Thanksgiving!!
