If you’re house bound due to storms or looking for Cyber Monday deals, we’ve got our final holiday favorite things gift guide to help you finish your gift shopping online.
I had hoped to get this post up on Saturday but I decided I needed a little time off.

If you follow Candice Bergen on Instagram, you’ll often see her dog Bruce and his brother Lloyd who is owned by her Chloe.

They have rubber soles so they can be worn to walk outside to pick up the newspaper or a quick dog walk.
If your parents leave cups of coffee lying around until they get cold, they might appreciate this Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug. The smart mug keeps any drink warm for 1.5 hours or all day if it’s kept on the charging coaster. You can also control the temperature with the app and it’s available in black and white.

The pearl earrings I wear every day were bought on a trip to Florence and everyone always asks me about them. A very similar pair are these Round Pearls on Hook by Ana Mari Ortega and they are a great price at $98. Even better, Ana has generously offered HC readers 20% your entire order with the code HC20.

This NuFace Trinity Mini Shimmer All Night Set is great for the girl on the go who wants to look refreshed after traveling or a night on the town.

I had my birthday dinner at the Peninsula Grill in Charleston, South Carolina this April because of their Ultimate Coconut Cake. It can be sent for next day delivery to ensure freshness but it’s best served at room temperature. Send one as a gift and one to yourself to serve your family. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
If you know anyone in New York and are wondering what to get them, I suggest a membership to The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The basic membership of $110 allows the member to bring a guest for free so it’s an amazing two for one deal. The Member with Evening Hours membership is $210 and gives them two cards and allows for two guests which could be a great option for a family. And if you don’t live in New York, you can always give a membership to your local museum. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
Happy Shopping and Happy Holidays!
