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:

Holiday Gift Guide 2018: gift ideas for teens

It’s official! I have a high school teenager in the house, and she has informed me of what is hot, and what is not, in the world of high school teens. So, it is with the authority of a high school freshman that I bring you this holiday gift guide featuring gift ideas for teens.

Teenagers are typically the most difficult group of people to purchase holiday gifts for. They only shop at certain stores, and they only like specific pieces from those stores. If you buy the wrong color or item, even if it is from a “cool”store, it could still be a complete bomb.

My daughter has informed me the best rule of thumb is to buy clothing in black or grey. Only certain pull-overs can be ivory. Teens do not want glitter or sequins; so those days are over for these kids! Clothing needs to be plain, dark, and understated; yet still display cool brand names such as “Pink” or Abercrombie.”

The following items were hand-picked by my teen daughter who is a freshman in high school, and knows what is cool, and what isn’t cool. I assembled everything she suggested in the shopping widget below.

Sometimes I cannot clip the dark color, so you might see an item in a light or uncool color. Simply click through and select the darkest color possible; and then it will be cool for a holiday gift for a teen! Be sure to disable ad blocker for my website so you can see the shopping widget below!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your teen loves these gifts!
