Nothing puts me in the holiday spirit quite like a bit of sparkle and shine. As much I like it for myself (Santa: see here and here), it’s even more fun to be able to gift it to others. The good news is that there’s no shortage of fab silver and gold finds this year. Read on for all my favorites…

If it’s decor you’re after, I recommend taking a look at the Dauville collection. This is one of my all-time favorites. The little pebble dishes are great buys ($28) and are perfect for keeping various knick-knacks or using as bowls for nuts and other appetizers. Another favorite? This little Jonathan Adler zebra dish. It’s $32 and adds just enough shine no matter where it’s placed.

How abut something they’ll totally use but won’t buy for themselves? This Triple C PowerCard is perfect for the gal-on-the-go. It will charge up anything with a USB cord and the metallic and the gold case just makes it all the more sleek. I’m also obsessed with these gold headphones and am really hoping to find a pair in my stocking this year.

When it comes to accessories and all other fun extras, you can find something fantastic in nearly every price range. For jewelry buys on a budget, Bauble Bar is your best bet. They’ve got everything from major statement-makers to the more subtle sparkle. My very favorite: this Loeffler Randall metallic clutch. I’ve been carrying mine all week long. It’s the perfect size and the best part? It’s under $100.

Like I said, so many good options. Happy shopping…!
