Downtown Summerlin, in collaboration with style guru and fashion blogger, Christie Moeller, hosted a group of us last Saturday for a holiday gifting crawl to experience some the retail goodness and deals for the holiday season!
We started off at Dillard’s to talk about one of my favorite brands from England, Jo Malone. Most people discover this brand the way I did, via a Jo Malone candle. Handmade in England, the candle-making process is a truly artisanal. They carefully choose from 400 different wicks. Their bath oils are to die for. A candle, a bath oil, a room spray…you cannot go wrong with Jo Malone products especially for holiday gifting this season.
Special thanks go out to them for gifting us the Nectarine Blossom & Honey Bath Oil, cannot wait to use it!
Our next stop was a tasting experience at Oil & Vinegar – a gourmet specialty retail concept from Norway. Once you step in this beautiful space, you feel like you’ve stepped into a shop somewhere in Europe. With a vast array of oils and vinegars to choose from, the options are endless. I need to back for their mustard which was absolutely delicious. Check out the beautiful array of holiday gift baskets for the foodie in your life.
We then walked over to Leather Couture by Jessica Galindo – all locally handcrafted leather pieces designed by Jessica herself. The aesthetic of the store is gorgeous, I couldn’t stop admiring the bags, bowties and leather scarves. If you’re looking for a unique and luxurious gift, you have to check out this space. Special thanks to Jessica for the custom leather luggage tag! Did you know you can also go in and work with Jessica one-on-one for a customized piece? I’m loving the silver leather right now…hmmm.
It was my first time at West Elm and since I’m in home renovation mode at the moment, I couldn’t help but get inspired by some of their gorgeous displays. We experienced a Terrarium workshop, also a first for me. It’s always good to learn something new. Thank you for the beautiful cactus! The key to maintaining the cactus alive – do not overwater. Noted.
Another brand I love is G Aveda Salon and Spa. It always smells so good in there! The gift of relaxation and healing makes for a great gift! Thank you for gifting us a mini-facial, I need to book my appointment soon.
We ended our Downtown Summerlin holiday gifting tour with a delicious lunch at California Pizza Kitchen. Wow, so much more than just pizza, they have salads and appetizers that captivated my palate. California Pizza kitchen gift cards are perfect stocking stuffers!
