Whether you’re shopping for yourself (there is nothing wrong with a self-care holiday season!) or you’re on the hunt for your bestie, here are five of my favorite fun and stylish gifts for the holidays:

Alpine Beanie by Tenth Street Hats

Tenth Street Hats craft a number of designer hats and have been in business since 1921! With the winter solstice on the way, their Alpine beanie is one of my must-haves for snow season. It has glitter woven into it for an extra sparkle, comes in silver or black (pictured), and it’s super comfy. Stay cozy whether you’re on the slopes or the streets with their styles and shop yours here.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Instant Camera

If you’ve watched my Instagram stories at all this year, you know I love my little Fujifilm Instax camera. Whether you’re bopping at festivals, dancing at holiday parties, or popping bottles on New Year’s Eve, this little cam is the perfect way to record your night’s festivities. The lighting reel on the front self-adjusts for indoor or outdoor settings and the film is actually a bit cheaper than Polaroid’s. My refrigerator is covered with Instax photos of all my friends and family from the year, so start your next art project with this camera! Shop the “Smoky White” Instax (my choice) at this link.

Mikasa Beauty Brushes

As I’ve mentioned in other posts, I’ve become obsessed with highlighter palettes this year. I love the glimmer a good highlighter creates in photographs- in fact, locking in that look has been one of my best 2018 beauty secrets! To craft a solid shine, I use my Mikasa Beauty brush set. Their high quality brushes are created for industry makeup artists and they help me get camera-ready in a matter of minutes. Grab yours here and don’t forget to use my code HANNAHBLONDON25 for 25% off at checkout.

Tarte’s Mermaid Jewels

Festival season is just around the corner and these Tarte Mermaid Jewels were one of my absolute favorite summer looks. I honestly wish I could wear them more often! A few jewels combined with Tarte’s Mermaid glitter will have you festival-ready in five minutes. And the best part? They last all day! I wore my look for a full 16 hours in 90+ degree heat at Grandoozy this year and they stayed in place from the day’s first sounds to the night’s final fireworks. Get yours at this link.

Stitch Fix Subscription

This is truly the gift that keeps on giving! From summer sundresses to a winter wardrobe, let Stitch Fix help you style your next season. Their subscription delivery service lets you choose the frequency of your fixes (I do monthly) and you can tell your stylist if you have a special event or trip coming up so they can craft the perfect outfits for your special occasion. Stitch Fix saves me so much time and their petite size options are phenomenal. You can use my special referral code here to get $25 off your first fix.

Why I Love My Professional Brush Sets From Mikasa Beauty

I recently got really into highlighter palettes. Like I bought five of them from Tarte (yay for cruelty free!) and I’ve been using them with all my photoshoot friends. I can’t help it- I love the shimmer they add to any look! A little goes a long way though, and that’s why I love Mikasa Beauty’s brushes!

Mikasa brushes and blenders are made from high-quality products by beauty insiders. They make a brush for every look imaginable- from luxury red carpet to costume makeup to everyday styles. I’ve recently been using their finishing powder velour puff after my highlighter, their blender for any contouring I do, and their kabuki brush for several of my blushes and powder foundations. I love the quality and they’re super affordable. You can even get 25% off your order with my code: HANNAHBLONDON25 at checkout!

If you’ve recently gone on a beauty binge like me, Mikasa can help! I hope you guys like their brushes as much as I do! Give their website a browse.
