The Conservative Prep's Gift Guide

The Conservative Prep's Gift Guide

Here is my gift guide for the Holidays. While some items are bigger presents, I made sure to add some stocking stuffers or small gifts for friends.

1. Lilly Pulitzer Sorority: I am an alum of Kappa Delta Sorority and still buy the Lilly Pulitzer Sorority items because I will be a proud member of my sorority forever. Lilly added some new great stocking stuffers with the bracelet, dry erase board (perfect for undergrads), and iPhone cover.

2. OPI Nail Polish: OPI makes my favorite nail polish. I have never had any problems with it as I do not like transparent colors, which OPI does not produce very often. I am obsessed with the dark tones of the new Skyfall Collection for the holidays.

3: Kate Spade Jewelry: Kate Spade jewelry is a classic gift for a preppy girl who needs to add some glamour to their wardrobe. The bow pearl earrings above are my favorite earrings to wear on a Saturday night date with my husband. Kate Spade makes holiday-inspired jewelry that doesn't look like it should matched an ugly Christmas sweater.

4. Anything from Vineyard Vines: Vineyard Vines makes quality clothes. When I buy their tote bags, they last for years. I used one throughout my sophomore year of college as my book bag. Now, the company has started to make sorority products, Tumbler glasses, and other small stocking stuffers, but leave the Shep Shirts for your main list for Santa. Use the coupon code "jingle" for free shipping!!

5. Patagonia Vest: Since I now live on the North Shore, the wind coming the coast really bites through clothes regardless of how many layers I wear. The Patagonia Women's Retro-X Vest is on my Christmas List because once the weather turns extreme on the coast, I can't wait to cut down the wind with this vest.

6. Smathers and Branson needlepoint for the guys: my husband loves his Smathers and Branson SEC needlepoint belt. He refuses to get the new one with the teams that the SEC added. Smathers and Branson makes a variety of gifts for your guys from belts to key fobs to flasks. 

But this pin from Pinterest describes my Christmas List:
