13 Neutral + Metallic Gift Ideas We Love

  1. Tory Burch Shrunken Shoulder Bag : Tory Burch is all about metallic this holiday season. This gorgeous petite, shoulder bag is a gorgeous gift to give. Actually, it’s so pretty that you may even find yourself adding it to your own wishlist.
  2. Tory Burch Scallop-T Smartphone Wristlet : In my opinion, everyone needs a smartphone wristlet. It’s helpful to have a wallet that can hold your iphone – preventing panics on lost phones! Plus, this one is gorgeous with its scallop detail and pretty pink.
  3. Milly Slay Box Clutch : Box clutches are so in style, especially ones that describe you and your friends 😉 This one, in particular, is a lovely holiday gift for a sister, friend or even mom!
  4. Halogen Loafer  : I believe that everyone needs a fun pair of shoes and it doesn’t cuter than a metallic platform loafer. These go great with business attire – grab some for a fellow coworker!
  5. LuMee Lighted iPhone Case : The lighted phone cases by LuMee are perfect for your selfie adoring friends and family. It’s impossible to take a bad selfie with this phone accessory.
  6. Bose Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones : Take my word for it, these headphones are worth the splurge. These are the best noise cancelling headphones I’ve managed to get my hands on. They are great to gift to students, frequent travelers, and music lovers!
  7. Pina Colada LED Lamp  : Does it get any cuter than a metallic, gold pineapple lamp? We think not.
  8. Target Leather Bar Cart : Bar carts are so popular these days and Target never fails to have some of the cutest and most affordable options. Pair it with a bottle of champagne or some glassware! Don’t miss out on this particular one – it’s on sale for less than $100!
  9. Luxe Rose Gold Flamingo Float : During the summer of 2016, pool floats were part of the most popular trends. Fortunately, they continue to fly off shelves even during the winter season. The rose gold flamingo is to die far and poses as the ideal gift for those sun-kissed beach babes.
  10. Deco Yoga Mat : Many of my friends are fit gurus who spazz over new athletic equipment and apparel. Gift your fit friends a mat from La Vie Boheme Yoga. They make gorgeous yoga mats that are pieces of artwork in themselves.
  11. Martini Glasses Set : This set is great to present to hosts or hostesses. Whether it be for someone hosting a party or a family member, everyone can appreciate these gorgeous glasses.
  12. Invisibobble 3-Pack Hair Ties : I love this pack of hair ties. Their grip is really secure and their shape helps prevent split ends. These hair ties are a great stocking stuffer!
  13. 17 – Month 2016-17 Planner : Planners are a great gift for the specially organized. This one, in particular, is perfect in size, and gorgeous and simplistic in style.

    Metallic. Interesting color. Tory Burch is always nice. Once again Bose headphones are always a good choice. Uh! I so need a bar cart. A planner is always a good idea to have especially when it looks so cute like above.

    Live Target leather bar cart -will come in handy for the holidays-all that glitters is gold

  12. Sydney says:

    Seriously I will take one of each on this. It is like all my favourite items in one guide! Love it all!!

  13. Lisa Phillips says:

    I really would have to say I like the design and function of the Target Leather Bar Cart. Holiday parties are more fun when there is a bar for friends to join around, this is the perfect alternative if you don’t have a bar in ur house. It looks sleek, I like it!

  14. Madison says:

    I want #5 so badly!! It’s so cool how there’s a design to turn on a flash for your whole phone especially when you want to take selfies with friend when going out!

  15. Nikki C. says:

    I COMPLETELY agree with you that Bose Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones are completely worth the splurge! I’ve had mine for years, and because of the warranty that came along with them, whenever they need minor adjustments, it all comes free. They always sound amazing, and heck, even if they don’t, at any point, Bose takes care of it all for ya! I definitely recommend these headphones if anyone is looking to purchase some this holiday season! 🙂

  16. Megan says:

    Invisibobble are THE best hair ties for preventing the hair crease! Great idea as a stocking stuffer!!

  17. Chloe R says:

    My friend has a Lumme case and it is genius! It takes such nice pictures. I have the pink flamingo floatie but not with that shine to it. It’s like a flamingo with highlighter on! Everyone loves to float in it.

  18. Holly says:

    Ahh, pretty bar carts always get me! I have two (one holds books, I don’t need THAT much booze), but every time I see another lovely one, I have to talk myself out of buying it.

  19. Linda Meyers-Gabbard says:

    This Tory Burch shoulder bag is very elegant. Perfect for the holiday.

  26. Carolyn says:

    Just bought the SLAY clutch. For me. Cue Beyonce.
    I also like the planner, but I find that I always buy cute planners and aspire to use them, and then fail miserably.

  27. JessZ says:

    Ummm, I need all of this on my wishlist. Great gift ideas.
