Editor's Picks: Gift-Worthy Perfumes

A fragrance is such a great gift for a special someone. It's substantial but not too expensive, depending on which kind. And the good ones come in such pretty bottles.For an incredibly unique perfume, Immortal Perfumes pictured above, offers a combination of beautiful scents and rich, romantic history.

My personal go-to fragrances tend to be the Victoria's Secret perfumes. Scents like Sexy Little Things Noir by Victoria's Secret come in such beautiful packaging, though I'm partial to the scent of VS Pink and VS Sheer Love.


A fragrance can serve as a sentimental gift. With scents like Lollia In Love, Lolliamakes for a very sweet gift. I love the floral prints and unique packaging for their other items like bath soap and lotion. If it isn't being given as a romantic gift, for example, a lotion and bath soap set is much more suitable. For a nice sampling of the different scents, try this Lollia Little Luxe Gift Set.

Pretty Ways to Use Plaid on Your Holiday Table


If you want to incorporate a little print on your holiday table, a cozy plaid is just the thing. You can mix it with natural, rustic elements like wooden charger plates and wood slice serving rounds; or you can create a more glamorous look, like this beautiful outdoor red plaid tablescape with red flowers on Style My Pretty Living.

Go for a grey plaid and mix in non-traditional colors like plum to get a more modern holiday table setting. Or pick a forest green and navy plaid; for Christmas, you can incorporate holly or pine accents, like a pine garland centerpiece. 


Do some pattern mixing on your holiday table with a plaid tablecloth and patterned dinnerware. Plaid linens look great with an elegant Christmas toile place setting or a fun garden print. You can also layer on an additional plaid print. Pictured: Williams Sonoma Classic Tartan Plaid Tablecloth


I like to use red plaid that can easily transition from Thanksgiving to Christmas. If you already have plenty of holiday linens in solid colors, you can mix in a bit of plaid with a tartan place setting. I love these tartan plaid mugs.

If you have trouble finding the right kind of plaid table linens, take a peek in the clothing section. I love to use scarves instead of table runners. They're just the right size and come in so many different prints this time of year.
