I recently got a head start on my holiday shopping (I’m usually a bit of a last-minute kinda girl) and I have to say, doing your holiday shopping early and making a day of it is pretty delightful! We went over to Santana Row, which is decked out all cute for the holidays and it definitely got me in the Christmas spirit. We did some shopping, enjoyed the holiday vibes, and had lunch because you know, shopping is my cardio and it really works up an appetite! 😉 Santana Row has so many of my favorite stores that I personally like to shop at for myself (hehe), like Ted Baker, Kate Spade, Anthro, and H&M, as well as a few unique stores that are perfect for gift shopping, like Amazon Books and Libratone. I actually didn’t even know that Amazon had physical bookstores and there are only a handful in California, so it was fun to pop in there and find some gifts for my friends who are avid readers. Libratone is just across the street and also makes for the perfect gift that anyone would love—their wireless speakers are super chic and create soundspaces around you. After checking a few gifts off for people on my “nice” list, I made my way over to Ted Baker and ended up treating myself to a new winter coat. I’m obsessed and want to wear it all the time! I ended up going with the grey wool-cashmere wrap coat, but also really loved the blush colored one. Am I the only one who goes shopping for themselves while also shopping for holiday gifts?? I mean I doubt it, but could someone please confirm? 😀
Thanks to Santana Row for sponsoring this post!
