When it comes to giving gifts, I have to admit that I love it - it's one of my love languages. So when Carolina Premium Outlets reached out about putting together a holiday gift guide, I jumped at the chance! With so many shops to choose from, CPO is the ideal spot to check multiple friends and family off your holiday shop-for lists!
Here's a few of my favorite holiday shopping tips:
For The Guy:Buy him what he needs. I don't know about you, but my husband can be incredibly difficult to buy for. But only because what he says he wants, are items he needs (work shirts, underwear, car floor mats - yes for real) And even though those items don't seem fun and maybe a bit boring, it's what he really needs, so he loves receiving them. Don't try to go too off the list.
Check out all the printed button down options from Banana Republic Factory! My husband wears these to work everyday and at these prices, I can stock up and save!
For Your BFF:Sometimes, a great bag is the perfect gift for a gal pal. It could be something she needs, but doesn't always buy for herself. Enter Nine West Outlet!! I spotted this large carry all bag and had to grab it. I have a friend who's always traveling (both by plane and car) and it's the perfect size for her trips. But it also can double as an everyday work bag, roomy enough for computers, papers and anything else she might need. Plus, it was a fabulous price!
For the Kiddos:
This may be a little bit more exciting for the adults, but why not take a break from the toys. Is it just me or are the kids clothes like ridiculously cute these days? I mean.. I want some of them! And if you don't think your little one wants to open clothes, you can definitely shop for Christmas Day or New Year's Eve outfits early at Carolina Premium Outlets.
I mean how adorbs are these 2 outfits from GAP Factory? Sequin skirts and elbow patches for your mini me? Yes, please!
For the gal:
I LOVE picking out outfits for my mom. And she loves it too so that she doesn't have to think about what to pair with what. Carolina Premium Outlets has A TON of stores to choose from, making it easy to put together a full look for her.
These Ann Taylor glitter skinny jeans are perfect for her (psssst they come in a variety of shapes like Modern, Curvy and Petite so everyone can find their fit!) and versatile enough to carry her from season to season. All I needed to add was a sweater and some bling to round out the full look. She'll look SO cute in this all winter long!
For the Teacher/Co-worker/Party Hostess/Anyone!
We all have that person who we feel like... what they heck are we going to get them? Enter my go-to gift: Yankee Candle! It's a great option because it's not too personal, but still says that you care about them and were thinking about them during this Holiday season. My advice? Stick with a classic scent, like Cotton. Right now, Yankee Candles at Carolina Premium Outlets large candles are on major sale so you can knock out a few gifts with one swoop.
