Christmas shopping gets harder every year you get older. Too often when people want something they just buy it and it gets harder and harder to find a special gift that they’ll love. But with a challenge comes some fun, and an extra sense of accomplishment when you get someone something they love!

Last weekend I went to a brunch at Neiman Marcus and I was blown away by all the amazing gift-ables they had at every price point. Their Christmas Book is an adventure to flip through – I saw so many things in my price range that would make amazing gifts for my people, and the Fantasy Gifts are INSANE and fun to read about.
To kick it off, the NM Cafe had so many amazing treats ready for us. To drink they had a coffee martini with donut cotton candy, bellini with birthday cake cotton candy and bloody mary with bacon cotton candy. I had the bellini (delish!) and P.S. you can buy those cotton candies!!! They also have a whole set of cotton candies that are flavored after adult drinks (Rosé cotton candy, yasssss!!).
The beautiful Richelle from Puckers and Pumps
After grabbing a drink and one of those delectable danishes I started perusing the gifts!!!
There were SO many edible gifts, from the cotton candy I mentioned earlier, to the classic Annual Popcorn Tin, the most amazing Holiday spiced pecans, these fun whiskey pickles from Brooklyn Brine Co. (only $10! great stocking stuffer for the whiskey lover in your life!), and so many fancy candies like these cute mix tapes and this work-of-art slice of pizza!!
If you’ve got kiddos on your gift list and don’t want to risk getting the same gift as another auntie (it has happened to my kids so many times!), then just step away from Target and Walmart and head to Neiman Marcus. Those light up skates are too fun, this US map puzzle is educational and adorable, the blinged out bluetooth karaoke microphone is just the kind of extra I am all about, and I love this Animals of the World Coloring Roll (10 feet long and $15!).
Of course there were so many unique things for the adults you’ll be exchanging gifts with – here were some of my favs!
I actually thought these were cigars! Haha, oops! Still, such a cute gift for the man in your life – Sugarfina Chocolate Cigars.
I WANT THESE CHAMPAGNE FLUTES! The mid century modern Christmas vibes are so dreamy!!!
Creed fragrances are totally out of my price range but I fell in love with them at the last Neiman Marcus event and had to go take a whiff. I have seriously never loved a perfume or cologne more – I love their men’s and women’s scents equally and would wear either.
If you have a doggie on your gift list these Max-Bone dog sweaters are cheeky and adorable!
And in my rich person dreams lives this Dolce and Gabbana toaster. (my husband got me a toaster for my 30th birthday, I probably wouldn’t have been annoyed if it was THIS toaster, haha!)
I LOVE this neon sign!!!!!
Flip through the 2018 Christmas Book and see some more of the crazy good gifts Neiman Marcus has!!
Thank you to Neiman Marcus and Christie Moeller for hosting this event and getting me all sorts of inspired for Christmas gift shopping!
