Last Minute Stocking Stuffers for Everyone on Your List
The Style Sauce Stocking Stuffers Christmas Gift List

You know what they say: Good things come in small packages. I don't know who "they" is, but it certainly seems to be true. I remember as a kid getting some of my BEST Christmas gifts in my stockings- there's nothing like a some diamond earrings or a gift card to Nordstrom to really make your Christmas, know what I mean? With Christmas just 5 days away I've rounded up 4 of my favorite stocking stuffer ideas for all your last minute shopping needs.

PSSSTTTT I do ALL my shopping last minute because I'm a procrastinator. It seems like you're like me, and that's why you're here reading this blog, trying desperately to figure out what to get for your aunt Cindy or your brother Luke for Christmas (or Hanukah) this year.

No worries. I gotchu. 

The Short and Sweet Stocking Stuffer List for Everyone

Gift Idea #1: Flores Lane Candles

Flores Lane "Beverly Hills" scented candle, $22

Flores Lane "Beverly Hills" scented candle, $22

For basically anyone who's ever been to New York or L.A. (AKA EVERYONE):

I've talked about these candles before (read that blog here), and there's a reason I'm talking about them again. My girls over at Flores Lane are seriously amazing and keep coming out with dope candles with dope scents. I love to shop small and I love these candles. I've already known and loved their L.A. scents, but they've recently come out with a New York line entirely named after different boroughs in my favorite East Coast city. My favorite one from their New York scents is Chelsea, which also just so happens to be one of my favorite places in NYC, as well. Isn't it ironic, don't ya think? Anyways, pick a scent named after a nook of New York or L.A. and it's sure to be a hit with your Mom, Sister, Best Friend, Agent, whatever. I mean it, everyone loves these things. Shop them here. 

Some of the scents from the Flores Lane New York Collection,  all $22

Gift Idea #2: Sudio Sweden Headphones

For the music lover (also EVERYONE): 

Sudio Sweden makes these cute little wireless headphones and I've used mine almost every single day since I got mine. I have the white color way but they come in an array of colors including black and blue for the males in your life. If you have a brother/ uncle/ cousin / ex boyfriend that just got an iPhone 7 this is the perfect gift for them. (I'm kidding though, don't buy your ex boyfriend gifts. Haven't I taught you anything?) Perk: Use code THESTYLESAUCE to get 15% off your order. You're welcome

Sudio Sweden  Vasa Bla headphones,  Daniel Wellington  classic Sheffield watch, $199, Aenon charcoal face mask, $6 and Sage et Cie recycled paper notebook, $12 both via  ShopWantList .

Gift Idea #3: ShopWantList

For the minimalist (aka me)

Ok I love to dress in color sometimes, but I also love minimal shit. I love anything with clean lines and the color white involved, so I'd be uber happy to get any of these little gifts from ShopWantList. Included in the photo below is Repeat & Co's black palm makeup (or pencil) case, $22,  Sage et Cie candle ($25) and recycled paper notebook ($12), and Shop Want List's own tassel bracelet and moon child ring (both $18).   These are also all from local artisans and small businesses. It just feels good to gift things that artisan made. At least I feel that way, anyways. Check out the entire selection of accessories and gifts here.

Gift Idea #4: Daniel Wellington Watches

For the always on-the-go person in your life

Do you have a friend who is always late? Then this is perfect for them. It's also perfect for the person who's always traveling, the person always losing their phone who needs to still know what time it is, the business person you know, your dad, your brother Luke, and your dog. Ok scratch the last one, but maybe Hudson the golden retriever would even look chic wearing one of these watches. Major perk: Use code STYLESAUCE to get 15% off your order until January 15th

Fall 16 Wardrobe Staple: The Silk Bomber
The Style Sauce satin bomber street style fashion blogger

If you're like me, you've already been planning your Fall wardrobe and you're SO ready to break it out (coat season just get here already!). I always comb the magazines and my usual online publications early to know what's coming- and it's super fun for me to pick out the trends from the shows at NYFW, LFW, PFW, and MFW that I personally think will be huge for the next year (I'm like almost ALWAYS right, btw. ;)) It seems that every August I go through this end of Summer in between season struggle, especially since it's always the hottest in Los Angeles August, September, and October. Enter "transition pieces". This is always a big fashion challenge because it can be so weird to mix Summer things with Fall pieces that are heavy fabrics like velvet, leather, and cashmere. 

Here's where the silk bomber jacket comes in. It's already every where for Summer, but plan on this piece being even bigger for Fall. The cherry on the top of goodness with this wardrobe staple is the fact that it's light weight enough to layer over a flowy dress for the chic-est end of Summer look, yet you'll still be able to wear this bad boy over a sweater with a pair of your favorite jeans and a boot when it's freezing (aka 60 degrees in L.A., ha). 

Another reason I love this trend is that it's something that all body shapes and skin tones look good in. It really is universally approachable. Below I'm picking out for you some of my favorites for all budgets. What do you think of the satin bomber trend? Let me know in the comments below.
