gift

It’s that time of year again: LLScene’s Holiday Gift Guide is here! We’re confident the holiday spirit is going to be welcomed with open arms more than ever this year, so we promise not to disappoint. 

You have spent more time with your families and loved ones lately, so it’s safe to say we know what they love, what they don’t love, what they need, and what they certainly don’t need. So, that is what this gift guide is all about: giving the gift that keeps on giving this holiday season because you finally know the right thing to get that person that seems to have everything.

Who Doesn’t Love Comfort?

Everlasting Comfort Luxury Faux Fur Throw Blanket 

We have certainly learned to value every aspect of comfort in 2020, so we’re starting off with the Everlasting Comfort Luxury Faux Fur Throw Blanket–because it’s the only blanket you’ll want to turn to when it’s time to unwind from a long day for a little Netflix and Chill action on the couch. We wish you could reach through the screen and touch this blanket, because the photos can barely do it justice. This ultra-soft and fluffy plush throw blanket is a perfect size (50×65) and weight for anyone in your house. Whether you’re having house guests, looking for a gift, or want to treat yourself, the Everlasting Comfort Luxury Faux Fur Throw Blanket will do the trick.

BioPEDIC Premium SofLOFT Body Pillow

You’re going to need a pillow to go with that comfortable blanket, so look no further than the BioPEDIC Premium SofLOFT 20-by-54 inch Body Pillow. We have personally sampled these pillows, and officially can’t live without them. If you don’t think you need a body pillow, think again. This BioPedic body pillow has premium hypo-allergenic polyester fiberfill that includes polyester/cotton 240 thread count softcover, which means you’re getting multi-positional support and comfort where you need it.

So why not look and feel amazing in Carve Pajamas after a night of dressing up and hitting the town this holiday season? Carve Designs just released new pajama styles, and you can tell that they’re perfect for lounging around the house or sleeping in style.

Who Doesn’t Love Jewelry?

Rosenberg Diamonds and Diamonds Direct 

After spending so much time with family this year, we’ve all been able to get a glimpse into what really goes on at home on a day-to-day basis. Fellas, we are talking to you. To put it frankly, your significant other deserves DIAMONDS, and Rosenberg Diamonds and Diamonds Direct are the places to go and get them! You’ve surely spent enough time with your significant other to know exactly the type of style they like, which means you shouldn’t have to play the guessing game this year. Whether they’re more of a dainty, delicate person, or they want to be blinged out to the max, you’ll be able to find what you’re looking for. Oh, and this should go without saying, but the holidays are the PERFECT time to propose…just saying! *Prices may vary.

House of Jewels, Miami

If this year has taught us anything, it’s that there’s no time to sit around doing something you don’t love doing, and that’s especially true when it comes to your work life and pursuing new business ventures. While we’re on the topic of jewelry, we have to mention one of our favorite new brands: House of Jewels, a Miami-based modern gold jewelry house led by designer Jianni Acosta. Acosta is on a mission to motivate and empower aspiring entrepreneurs with gold pieces that accentuate their lifestyle while pursuing their business ideas. Hence the amazing LLScene branded cuff bracelets she made us.

When it comes to jewelry, we’re prone to go the minimalistic route, which means we love layering dainty pieces every chance we get, and the official launch of House of Jewels’ DREAM Collection does just that. Acosta’s DREAM Collection features cuff bracelets with statements such as, “Dream. Believe. Achieve,” and “Make Boss Moves” to remind individuals to take action toward their goals and look good doing it! The DREAM Collection also features 8K gold plated over stainless steel necklaces that are tarnish-free and hypoallergenic.

We haven’t even gotten to the best part! House of Jewels launched the DREAM Collection with a grant program in mind. Acosta’s career path inspired her to switch from a corporate job to launching House of Jewels Miami. Now, she hopes to inspire others to do the same by helping to fund their start-up with 30% of proceeds from the newly launched DREAM Collection’ sales. The grant program is officially open. Individuals can apply for a chance to win 30% of the proceeds from sales pertaining to the DREAM Collection by visiting the grant page below. When filling out the application, applicants are encouraged to submit a video. In the video, participants will share how the grant will help them achieve their goals. Winners are selected quarterly. When shopping for your loved ones this holiday season, be sure to keep House of Jewels in mind. Not only do they have pieces that anyone in your life will enjoy, you will also be giving back with every sale while inspiring someone special in your life to pursue their dreams.

Little Miss Sass

You may have seen us post about Little Miss Sass lately because we can’t get enough of their customized bracelets, and we aren’t alone. Owner Melissa Casanueva got to work during quarantine by starting a business that would be lucrative and bring a smile to people’s faces. Melissa outsources the beads from one of the best vendors in the industry and makes each customized bracelet by hand with love.

This is definitely a no-brainer when it comes to your holiday gift list this year. Melissa made us a personalized LLScene bracelet, and we’ve already placed 4 orders for our family and friends as Christmas gifts this year with plans to order even more. Whether you want to honor your favorite sports team, be “cool mom” by rocking your kids’ names on your wrist, or need an inspirational quote, Little Miss Sass can do it all.

Follow the account on Instagram and DM Melissa for orders: @little_miss_sass

Because we could all use a little Beauty & Skincare…

XO8 Skin

You didn’t think we would do an entire Holiday Gift Guide article without mentioning beauty products, did you? Per usual, we’ll start with what we know, what we trust, and what we know our fellow beauty/skincare lovers will want this holiday season and that is anything from XO8 Skin. This brand saved our skin during quarantine and if you don’t believe us, check out the article Quarantine Beauty Tips to Stay Glam While Staying at Home.

To be quite honest, we wouldn’t be able to live without XO8 Skin’s Serum, and we’re confident the skincare lover on your holiday list can’t either. XO8 Skin’s entire product line was amazing before a global pandemic, but insert wearing medical masks every day on top of makeup and you have yourself a full-on mask-ne breakout that XO8 Skin can help and/or prevent.

Lola’s Lashes:

After a long year of not seeing anyone and not having to wear makeup, it’s time for glam, and Lola’s Lashes can make that happen easily and naturally. With all of the socially distant holiday parties and events you have planned for the 2020 holiday season, you’re going to want to step up your game a bit because it’s time to make your debut! We have been through our fair share of lash extensions and fake lashes and nothing compares to Lola’s Lashes. 

We’ve tried them and we are in LOVE. They have magnetic lashes, and the revolutionary flick and stick that can be used with other false lashes or their strip lashes for the easiest application! We aren’t the best at applying lashes and can vouch that Lola’s Lashes make it so easy and so fun to wear these lashes.
