Do you realize that this Saturday (December 19th) is your LAST one to shop for holiday gifts before the big day? If you’re not keen on running all over town, you can shop in one spot. I’ve put together this simple gift guide based on stores and products all found at The Forum Shops, which also happens to be one of my favorite places to shop.
Not only does this elegant retail destination offer all types of brands, from luxury to fast fashion, but it also features wonderful eateries for those moments when you need a nosh in between your splurges. Overall, I just find my shopping experience at The Forum Shops to be quite elevated despite my moderate shopping budget. I feel like a VIP, even though I’m not one.
And I’m not the only one loving The Forum Shops. While on a recent shopping excursion, I ran into a bevy of the beauty queens from the Miss Universe pageant who were shopping for makeup, clothes, and handbags. They were kind enough to pose for a photo. That’s them at the top of this blog post.
So relax and find comfort that I’ve done the reconnaissance for you. Check out my recommendations below, breathe a sigh of relief, and head out to The Forum Shops this week to finish up your last-minute Christmas shopping. Shop The Forum Shops at 3500 South Las Vegas Boulevard.
At John Varvatos, I fell in love with the steam punk hats, fingerless gloves, scarves, and all the accessories. Swoon!
You can never go wrong with a beauty or fragrance gift from Dior. First, let’s talk beauty. Dior Prestige is an exceptional line of skincare. If you have someone on your gift list who likes to be pampered, then Dior Prestige is something she’ll appreciate. [LOLLIE NOTE: Look for the new Dior Beauty Spa to be added to the retail space after the first of the new year!]
Now, let’s discuss fragrance. The J’Adore line is always a favorite. Plus, Johnny Depp just released his new men’s fragrance Sauvage. That’s bound to be a hit. But don’t miss out on La Collection Privée, a collection of rare and refined fragrances for both men and women. These are true olfactory creations with a flower at the heart of each. Handcrafted in a traditional manner, a fragrant gift from La Collection Privée will be so adored, that your gift recipient will have no clue that you got it at the last minute.
From ornaments to hand mirrors to handbags and luggage, you’ll find a plethora of luxe gift options at Henri Bendel at any and every price point. Whether you’re shopping for someone special or playing Secret Santa to someone you barely know at work, you will find something cute, creative, and classy at Henri Bendel.
The Art of Shaving
This men’s grooming boutique makes it SO easy to shop! Just select from any number of the pre-made gift sets. You’ll find a great selection of shaving gifts for dads, brothers, and boyfriends.
I LOVE the sweaters and outwear at Custo Barcelona. These pieces are on my own wish list. Surely, your gift recipient will love them, too.
I love a debonair man, and if you have one on your nice list, then you definitely want to see what’s new at Brooks Brothers. The scarves and sweaters are dreamy, of course, but special gifts like the brand’s umbrella and poker set are beyond charming.
Zadig & Voltaire
This French brand brings authentic chic style to Las Vegas’ retail scene. The hardcore fashionista on your gift list will fall in love with the sparkling handbag, but don’t forget about the stylish hats and scarves, which are perfect for the music festival goer in your life.
Let’s not forget about the kiddos. At Kids Kastle, there is such a range of products to shop, such as luxury label outfits and affordable plush animals. There are even a lot of Star Wars items to choose from, because you know your niece is a little on the nerdy side, right?
Kiehl’s always has the best ready-made gift sets. But my favorite are the sets and products from its limited edition Costello & Tagliapietra line, which not only includes exclusive artwork, but also gives back to the community by donating a portion of proceeds to Feeding America. Now, that’s truly special.
