holidays gifts santana row san jose 2018

Have you been to Santana Row in San Jose lately? It’s beautiful! They really outdid themselves with their holiday decorations this year! The holiday tree is beautiful, and there is a fun mailbox where you can mail letters to Santa! I know the letter I mailed was filled with gifts Santa can find right here on Santana Row.  There are so many things I want! I bet your list is long too!

Chances are, you have not completed your holiday shopping list yet. Same here! The best place to finish your holiday shopping is in San Jose at Santana Row. They have so many fun stores filled with fabulous gifts for the holidays. Plus, you can make a day of it! Arrive early, and you can enjoy brunch at Left Bank, coffee at Cocola, dim sum at Sino; and stay all day so you can enjoy a fabulous dinner at LB Steak! It really is a stay, shop, and play, kind of place to go!

In case you aren’t sure where to begin, I have rounded up four of my favorite shops on the Row and snaped a few pictures to show you my favorite gift ideas from the stores! SO, without further ado, here are my favorite gift ideas from Santana Row this year:

Gifts for the girl who loves glitter: Kendra Scott

As you know, Kendra Scott is one of my favorite jewelry stores. So, of course I would show you the fabulous gifts they have in store! That bold ring is a must-have for anyone on your list who loves to sparkle. The gift sets make shopping easy when you aren’t sure what to get. They also have nail polish, and home decor in store! There is something for everyone who likes a little sparkle in their life at Kendra Scott. Plus, they have plenty of gifts under $100, and under $50. Love that!

It’s here! The holiday season is underway, which means it is time to sport cozy holiday pajamas! Yay! I’m loving these PJ’s from my favorite intimate brand, SOMA. They are super soft and cozy; plus they have a festive candy cane stripe which is super cute!

One of our holiday traditions is decorating for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. I’m not big on braving the Black Friday crowds, which is why I do my shopping online for Black Friday, it’s so much easier! Instead, we spend the day decorating the house in our pajamas. It’s super cozy, and it is really fun to get into the holiday spirit!

These pajamas are perfect for decorating since they are comfortable, and have a holiday candy cane stripe. Aren’t they fun? Love them!

You can grab your own pair of festive pajamas from SOMA for the holidays online here.
