Philly, head over to your King of Prussia store tonight at 6pm to meet Lilliana in person and get shopping tips from her first-hand.)

1. Compagnie de Provence Scented Candle: “For the person on your list who has everything, there’s no better gift than a candle. It’s something people can always use—and when they’re packaged this nicely, it’s something they’ll love to leave out around the house.”

2. Metallic Voyager Passport Case: “Whether you fly once a year or live on a plane (like me!), transporting your documents in style is a must—and this silver case will get you excited about traveling before you even leave the house.”

3. Puddlejump Circle Scarf: “Scarves are a cold-weather staple and I love how effortlessly chic and cozy this one is! It’s something you can just throw on over a sweater or bundle up with when it gets really cold.”

4. Serpentine Skinny Belt: “I always like to give things that people wouldn’t buy for themselves, and a brightly colored belt is one of them. An accessory in a color like this will add fun and whimsy to any outfit, even something as simple as jeans and a tee.”

5. Spotted Snowfall Mittens: “Forget about basic winter accessories this season and have fun with your look—starting with your gloves! This polka-dot pair will get you excited for the season and, thanks to their design, give you the freedom to text even when it’s cold out.”
