Gift Guide   //   December 1, 2009

Welcome to December

Season’s Greetings, readers. The merriest month of the year has arrived, and I couldn’t be more excited. We’re feeling quite festive here at Luella and June, and we hope you are too! In the spirit of December, rather than my usual list of things to look forward to, I have decided to make this list a fabulous gift guide. We all need a little help when it comes to finding the perfect gift and this list (one of several we will be featuring this month) will give you some great ideas.

 Resort Fashion ($65), by Caroline Rennolds Milbank, celebrates the history of vacation-chic. Taking a peak through this book (filled with over 400 black-and-white photographs and insightful text) is almost as fun as trip to the beach.

Check out these DVF leather-and-rubber flip-flops ($65) perfect for a little stocking stuffer. They are available in nearly every hue under the rainbow – my personal pick is the orange.
Talk about getting a big job done in a tiny package. The Nars Day and Night Palette ($55) lets you go from the office to a night on the town in one fell swoop of your makeup brush.

Whether you’re a traveler or just don’t like to leave home without your makeup, this Tory Burch cheetah-print cosmetic ($55) case will keep your makeup organized and will be easily “spotted” in your purse.
Need a little light? These Rice Paper Tealight Glass Candle Holders ($6.50 each) should do the trick.
Dinosaur Designs, an Australian-based jewelry company, is responsible for this gorgeous  Wishbone Bangle Set ($165 per set). They are available in an assortment of colors but for now red is just right.
We all need a little Chanel in our lives and with this perfume wardrobe ($110) you can “try on” the scents before you commit to just one.
When you travel you travel in style – and your passport should too! Check out these adorable passport covers ($80) from Calypso and start jet-setting.
This Felix Rey Sequin Clutch ($290) is the ideal accessory for some year-round shine – and how adorable is that bow?

A favorite accessory of all the celebrities, Love Quotes scarves ($95) are made of Italian linen and come in all sorts of juicy colors. It’s the perfect way to wrap up all year long – plus 10% of all proceeds go to international children’s charities.

You no longer have to make a trip to the bookstore or wait for your issue of the New York Times to arrive at your doorstep each morning. The Amazon Kindle ($259) makes all of your favorite reads available at your fingertips.
