I can’t believe Thanksgiving is only a couple days away! It has always been one of my favorite holidays since I was little. When I was younger the week of Thanksgiving my sisters and I would blast Christmas music and help my mom deck the halls and decorate the Christmas tree. I love to think of it as the holiday season, and not two completely separate holidays.

With Christmas so close here are a few holiday gift ideas from Neiman Marcus that would be perfect for any woman in your life – wife, mother, sister or friend.

If you want something cute and simple try this Bobbi Brown Lipstick Set. Any girl would love this… I mean who wouldn’t want a lipstick color for any outfit?! If you’re going for something a little bigger and they’re obsessed with purses like I am, this bold red clutch would be a great option. Or you could even gift yourself this LBD that would be the perfect outfit for any holiday party!

Below are more of my favorite gifts for her from Neiman Marcus…

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
