Gift Guide: Splurges

There is always something "big" on my Christmas list each year. This year, I asked for new bedding, but certainly in years past electronics, fancy clothes and jewelry definitely made the list. If I could make a list of entirely "splurge" items, here are my top favorites!

|| concert/event tickets ||
For the last few years, we've gotten concert tickets in our stockings. Last year, it was Kenny Chesney/Eric Church tickets, and not only are they a fun surprise, but our family goes together, so these events are things we look forward to for months! Most of our events have gone through Ticketmaster or LiveNation.

|| jackets ||
I have searched high and low for the perfect quilted jacket. LL Bean has been sold out of theirs since September, and I couldn't ask someone to buy me a Burberry one that I have coveted for years. This Barbour one would make the perfect middle-man. It is even on sale! It is classic, adorable, and would look perfect with all of my Lilly outfits!

|| fancy bracelets ||
I'm a sucker for any fun bracelets to add to my daily stack. Of course, this David Yurman bangle would be perfect (and of course be a perfect match with my Albion Ring), and since I'm making a serious effort to invest in more yellow gold pieces, I would love this cutout cuff from Design Darling.

|| a little black purse ||
I think that every girl needs the perfect little black bag. I love anything from kate spade, but this cross-body is the perfect size, and the bow detail is too darling for words! I think anyone would love to see this under their tree!

|| pretty flats ||
I love me some Tory Burch flats. My feet on the other hand, hate them. A co-worker of mine shared some wonderful secrets about how to get them to stretch to fit (and not murder) your feet. Since my current flats have already torn up my feet, and are on their way to the trash pretty quickly, I am dying for a new pair to try out all of her secrets. I've been searching for a pair of quilted black flats, and these most certainly fit the bill.

|| an iPad ||
I bought my iPad as a gift to myself for my 25th Birthday. What can I say? I love the thing! The only thing I use my computer for anymore is blogging, and storing my music. I love the convenience of having a portable device that I can read on (that is bigger than my iPhone), watch movies on, and being able to travel without lugging my laptop around is truly a game changer. I've heard great things about the iPad Mini as well, but I personally wanted something a little bigger!

If you had no limit on gifts, what would be on your list!?
