Today’s post feels extra special to me because it’s all about nostalgia. Do you remember the first brand that you collected that you were excited about? Mine was Vera Bradley. My friends and I collected the many different patterns and colors of Vera Bradley duffel bags, totes, and cosmetic bags. When one friend would get the new pattern, we all needed it. And trust me, we knew about all of the new bags because we lived just a couple of hours south of the Vera Bradley headquarters in Indiana. We were in the know. Their soft and feminine designs were fun for everyday use, sleepovers, and road trips. I could cram SO much into my duffel bag. And bonus, mom could just throw the bag in the washing machine when it needed a refresh!

Well, for Lilly’s birthday this year I gave her her very first Vera Bradley piece. It felt really special to tell her how I started collecting my pieces as a young girl. Of course, she loved it. It’s hard not to appreciate Vera Bradley’s whimsical patterns and bright, bold colors. Lilly is now the proud owner of the Lighten Up Journey Backpack in the Indiana Blossoms print (because obviously). And it’s the Dashing Deal of the Day today on Vera Bradley’s site, so you can buy them for $100 each (reg. $175) with the code LIGHTENUPLOVE!

This Lighten Up Journey Backpack has the most storage of any backpack I’ve seen. From a designated spot for special papers to a ventilated pouch to stash shoes and worn clothes, it’s the perfect kid and adult friendly backpack for school, work, or travel. It has a padded laptop compartment, a hard case top pocket for sunglasses, and a trolley sleeve that accommodates luggage handles. It has even more storage tricks you can read about here.

For as roomy and durable as this Lighten Up Journey Backpack is, it’s actually surprisingly light weight! It’s also water-resistant.

Vera Bradley is an awesome source for gifts this holiday season! Here are a few more great gift ideas from their site!

I have a feeling the Hanging Travel Organizer and the Travel Duffel will be next on Lilly’s wish list. Check out the Lighten Up Journey Backpack today while it’s the Dashing Deal of the day and make some progress on your holiday shopping!

I have been SO excited to share today’s post! There is something for everyone here, and thanks to Lacoste’s big Winter Sale happening right now you can knock out some holiday shopping with 30% – 50% off select styles (some exclusions apply) plus free shipping and returns on all orders from 12/3 to 12/25!!

Lacoste is just that classic, fun brand that everyone knows and loves. I’ve been gifting Lacoste pieces to my older brother for years. It’s always well received. And not only is Lacoste’s collection well-made and well thought out, but giving back to the community is high on their list of priorities. They’re just a cool and kind company, which is why 2 Lacoste products are sold every second of every day.

I’ve put together 3 Gift Guides today: One for women, one for men, and one for kids. Let me warn you though, these gift ideas may result in a real “one for me, one for you” trend.

Gifts For Ladies:

That Sweatshirt Tennis Dress makes me want to take up tennis. Maybe I need it for pickleball games. Wait, this isn’t about me. This is about gifting. That Zippered Tote comes in 12 different colors and is adorable!

Gifts For Men:

The Men’s Polo is the perfect gift for any guy. It comes in 40 colors but I love that pink shade the most. The Half Zip Cotton Sweatshirt makes the perfect gift, too! I love the stand-up collar.

Gifts For Kids:

I mean, how cute are those little Velcro Sneakers!! And that Knit Crocodile Beanie Hat! The crocodiles are really so cute on kids.

And my favorite Lacoste gift of all is The Customizable Polo! You can select your crocodile from over 40 options (even team and flag patterns), choose your personal polo fit and color, and get up to 4 initials embroidered! Head over here to shop Lacoste’s Big Winter Sale with free shipping and returns! Happy holiday shopping and have a great day, Everyone!

Today’s Gift Guide is comprised of items that are all under $20! Because let’s be honest, an unlimited holiday shopping budget is just fantasy land. All of these gifts are special enough to stand on their own, or as an add on!

Monogram Mug – Love the garden party design on these personalized mugs by Rifle Paper Co.

Fuzzy Socks – I pretty much live in these around the house. They’re the most comfortable socks ever.

Facial Ice Roller – Any fellow puffy face sisters out there?? I could use this.

New Yorker Puzzle – Because ugly and boring puzzles are out. This is the kind of puzzle that wouldn’t make you scratch your eyes out every time you looked at it. I feel like I want a puzzle table at my house where the sole purpose is to work on your puzzle as you have the time. No rush. 5 minutes here, 20 minutes there…

Reusable Coffee Mug – For your friend who loves Mother Earth AND coffee. I love the classic look of this reusable mug!

That’s So 80’s Game – Even if you weren’t even alive in the 80’s this game would still be amazing.

Hum Beauty Vitamins – Gummy Vitamins for glowing skin and healthy hair, yes please!

Travel Laundry Bag – Perfect for your travel loving friend, or for your super organized friend, or hell, for even your friend who needs help organizing her life!

Beauty Chocolate – Bet you didn’t know that you could look and feel better by eating chocolate. Don’t believe me, check it out.

Gray Malin Book – Coffee table books are always a good idea and Gray Malin’s book is not only one of the prettiest, it’s super interesting to look at as well.

Care Of Vitamins – For the active gal who loves to try out all the new things. This variety pack of C/O vitamins let’s her try them all to see which is best for her.

Reusable Make Up Cloths – Have you ever been scratched by your cotton squares when applying toner? Well these reusable clothes are made with a gentle microfiber towel that are easier on your skin AND Mother Earth.

And I also wanted to tell you all about a few early Black Friday Sales happening right now. I’ll have a full list with favorites on Friday, but these early sales are too good not to mention and get a head start on!

SHOPBOP – I did a whole round up of favorites in a blog post yesterday (read it here). But this sweater done and done.

ANN TAYLOR – 50% off everything! This shawl collar wrap coat is freaking gorgeous. And these bow tie ankle pants are so cute. Also, this wrap sweater.

J.CREW – 50% off your purchase! This cinched waist tartan dress is perfect for the holidays. This turtleneck sweater feels like heaven. And these pajamas please and thank you!

Slip Silk Pillow Case – So listen to this. I was at the dermatologist last week and she says to me, “You’re a side sleeper aren’t you. I can see you slept on your left side last night.” This was NOT a morning appt. I was stunned. I’m wreaking my skin while I sleep and don’t even know it. She suggested getting a silk pillowcase because they’re much gentler on skin!
