Thank you to Victoria Emerson for sponsoring this post, all opinions are my own.

My Husband once told me that the best thing about being married to a blogger was the cheat sheet I make him every year for the holidays and my birthday – otherwise known as a Gift Guide! I mean, who am I to argue with that logic or to deny him the best thing about this gig… here it is, my personal birthday wish list:
I kept the items on the list under $50 so it would be a resource for all of as we race quickly towards gifting season. Think of this list when you’re planning holiday gifts for teachers, friends, gift exchanges and girl’s nights. 
Most notably on the list is my new fave brand for adorable jewelry that will tolerate my life on the go, Victoria Emerson. You may have spotted my Mama and zodiac necklaces throughout the Summer – I wore them all over Alaska! The Boho Cuff line has an amazing magnetic clasp that allows you to look like you stacked a ton of gorgeous boho jewels with the style of a chic California Bohemian but with zero effort. And P.S. if the price point and quality won’t get you, their super fast shipping will! 
1. Leather Wrap Bracelet
Available in so many colors, I love this simple design for a pop of color – and if you want them in animal print, metallics, with silver hardware or gold, or in vegan leather, Victoria Emerson has you covered. As a total bonus, the leather wrap bracelets are apart of the Victoria Emerson Christmas in July sale and are under twenty five bucks! 
2. Eye Cream
If my thirty fifth birthday doesn’t call for a high powered eye cream, I don’t know what will.
3. Striped Leather Pouch
I love pouches like this to stash in my larger purse for easy swapping to my pool bag, gym bag, back pack, whatever. The stripe on this one drew my eye and I know the leather quality will be perfect (and it would be so cute with the in-house monogramming!). 
4. Gold Zodiac Necklace
Any other proud Leos out there?? I’ve been wearing this Zodiac necklace all Summer and have received so many compliments on it – it’s a great elevated classic. 
5. Cuff Bracelet 
I own this gorgeous wrap bracelet and love, love, love the combo of soft blue beads, camel horse hair, neutral organic bead shapes and a little sparkle. And wait until you see the magnetic clasp! So easy to do yourself! 
6. Airbrush Finishing Powder
This is a staple in my make up bag, but it’s on the high end price point wise for me. It’s an easy cosmetic item for someone else to snag for you, with literally two color options, and the packaging is so luxe, it makes for the perfect glam gift. 
7. Lipstick Duo
The truth is, even on sale, I wouldn’t splurge on lipsticks at this price point. My sweet friend Lindsey Regan Thorne swears by this duo, and I would love to have them, which makes them a perfect gift! 
8. Floral Watch
You had me a suede blush watch strap! The floral face on this watch is so delicate and pretty but the scale of the watch is a on the larger size, which I love. 
9. Candle
I prefer clean, crisp scents with a soft floral note in my candles. As luck would have it, I also prefer a clean, clear jar shape without a lot of fuss so it blends with all the rooms in my house. 
10. Coffee Table Book
I gave up on coffee table books when Gray became a toddler but with Georgie hitting the two year mark, my coffee table books might be making a comeback soon! I love Rebecca Atwood’s style, Instagram feed, fabrics and wallpaper and since I won’t splurge on her papers, her coffee table book is a perfect solution. 
11. Mama Necklace
The price point on this necklace is such that ya’ll shouldn’t wait for your birthday to snag this, go ahead and treat yourself! I’ve been wearing mine non stop and am in love. 
12. Framed Family Photo 
Nothing on Earth would make me happier than a framed photo of my sweet babies (hello, Mom Life). We have our photo taken often but I’m always behind on having them framed and displayed. This service allows you to literally upload a photo from your phone, computer or Instagram feed and have it framed in seconds. You can have two “Instagram mini” frames for $50, and I can’t think of a single one of us who wouldn’t love to open framed photos of our fam for their birthday.
