The Nice List

The holidays always creep up and it seems like even the most prepared are still scrambling to find the perfect gifts. I recently took a trip to the Citadel Mall to look for gifts for everyone on my list. My list is long since it includes my big family here in Charleston which is 6 nieces and nephews on top of my hubby and 2 boys.

Antonio Melani Luxury Collection Lia Cashmere Crew Neck Long Sleeve Sweater $119, Gianni Bini Anyssah Strappy Jeweled Pumps $89.99 from Dillard’s

Other than finding something for everyone on your list they have a ton of clothes to keep you dressed to the nines this winter season. I love this outfit from Dillard’s and jewelry by James Avery. James Avery has tons of jewelry you can layer and customize with charms.



Dillard’s selection of cashmere sweaters is extensive with every color of the rainbow and even matching hoodie and jogger pant sets.

My go to men’s gifts are skincare and fragrances. What guy doesn’t like to smell good and have great skin? Jack Black is Gustavo’s favorite brand and the Tom Ford fragrances are unisex so you ladies can enjoy it too!

FAO Schwarz Magic Box of Secrets $19.99, FAO Schwarz Thunderbolt Jet RC Stunt Drone $49.99, FAO Schwarz Mythical Musical Unicorn Wired Kids’ Headphones $14.99 from Target

For the kids in your life you can’t go wrong with the FAO Schwarz collection from Target. From the Magic Box of Secrets for those little Houdini’s, to the drone, and the stylish unicorn headphones, they make the cutest gifts in eye-catching packaging.

Discovery Kids Globe 2-in-1 Day and Night Earth $24.99 from Target

The Discovery Kids Globe 2-in-1 Day and Night Earth is a geographic lesson and night light all wrapped up in one perfect gift any boy or girl would love.

Polaroid Portable Fabric Cube Speaker $24.99 from Belk, UGG® Varney Suede Booties $83.75 from Dillard’s

This Polaroid Portable Fabric Cube Speaker is an easy gift for the music lover in your life both young and old. Online it’s $24.99 but in store it’s only $14.99! These UGG boots are the stylish moccasin take on the big furry lined boots UGG is known for. Dillard’s carries UGG’s for the entire family from little kids to men’s.

Bath & Body Works always has a ton of bath and skincare products you want to bathe yourself in. The sweet smelling scents remind me of the holiday season and always gets me in the festive mood. Great for stocking stuffers, the whole family will be smelling delicious!

Santa will be available at the mall for pictures with COVID safety precautions until Christmas Eve.

Antonio Melani Luxury Collection Monica Cashmere Turtle Neck Sweater $129, Antonio Melani Victoria Detachable Real Fox Fur Collar Tie-Waist Wrap Coat $599, Antonio Melani Luxury Collection Genuine Leather Julia Faux-Wrap Skirt $249, Rebecca Minkoff clutch, Gianni Bini Kellbie Snake Print Tall Boots $169.99
