Get ahead on the holiday season creep-up. With must-have finds at every price point – from stocking stuffers to big-ticket items – this Boutique makes it easy to satisfy every request in a snap. Read on for tips on how to turn two popular gifts (big and small) into ones they’ll never put down.

 Just-Right Gift Picks for the Holidays

Stocking Stuffers
One bracelet makes a statement – a whole stack turns heads. Gift a variety of metals and sizes by tying them together with a ribbon.

Big-Ticket Items
A minaudière is petite, but it packs a style punch. Fill one with night-out essentials (like lipstick) so she can grab and go after unwrapping.

Our The Handpicked Holiday Gift Shop: Picks by Price Boutique opens Monday, November 24, at 3PM ET.

Brilliance New York Diamond & Pearl Night Cream $399 $29.99
If you didn’t think you could put that big-ticket item under the tree, think again. Grab a super-luxe night cream at a too-good-to-be-true price, then throw in a silk eye mask for the complete at-home spa experience.

Cullen Women’s Cashmere Hat & Fingerless-Glove Set $215 $79.99
& Portolano Men’s Striped Scarf & Glove Set $150 $49.99
Buy items in sets. Wrap a hat-and-glove set for twice the cozy, without breaking the bank. Then throw on skates and hit the ice together so they can show off.

Stella & Ruby 14k-Plated Braided Necklace $130 $39.99
Glitzy extras – think statement necklaces and crystal earrings – are crowd-pleasers. Keep them on hand for last-minute gift swaps. Have leftovers? Hold on to them for yourself or save them for next year.

Our Presented by PayPal: 12 gift steals. 24 hours. Boutiques open Monday, November 24; Tuesday, November 25; Friday, November 28; Saturday, November 29; and Monday, December 1, at 8AM ET.

You’re tackling those wish lists – and thanks to our buyers – snagging the just-right items for every giftee. Here are five ways to put a personal touch on those picks.

More Next-Level Gifting Tips

For the Luxury Loyalist
Indulging never goes out of fashion. Surprise them with luxe staples they can (and will) wear every day.

For the Homebody
A knit throw and a hoodie make nights on the couch even cozier. Add a movie for an excuse to stay in.

For the Relaxation-Minded
Give scrubs and candles for an at-home spa day. Toss in chamomile tea for the ultimate dose of Zen.

For the Sparkle Lover
Gift her gemstone hoops to channel the disco era or cascading pearls to speak to her Old Hollywood side.

For the Snow Seeker
She lives on the slopes. Supply her with wool scarves and sheepskin boots to minimize hot-cocoa breaks.

What happens when you combine two of America’s sweethearts, actress Anna Kendrick and the girly kate spade new york label? A snazzy holiday ad campaign. At least that’s what we’ve gathered from a sneak peek of a Las Vegas photo shoot full of fuzzy hats, tuxedoed high rollers, and lots of sparkle. kate spade new york CCO Deborah Lloyd recently told the press, “Anna embodies the kate spade new york spirit in so many ways. She is beautiful, smart, hilarious, and wildly talented.”

Keep an eye out for the glamorous (and a little bit quirky) ads when you stop by newsstands this Friday. You’re in for a festive treat.

Sure, it’s getting a little late. But you can still grab some gifting inspiration, order, and get it all in time for Christmas.

1. So. Many. Toys. The kids are going to love you for this.

2. Shopping on a budget? (Us, too.) Each of these gifts is sitting pretty at $50 or less.

3. Everyone is getting gifted. Needless to say, your home also deserves a little extra love.

4. Guys can be tough to shop for. Luckily, they’ll like everything on this list.

5. Accessories and clothes. What more could a girl ask for?

Still can’t decide? There’s always the Rue Gift Card.

We kissed sunning and swimming goodbye months ago. It’s about time we took on some cold-friendly activities.

1. We can’t be the only ones who consider hanging Christmas lights exercise.

2. There’s no way we’d pass up a sleigh ride (unless hot cocoa wasn’t allowed inside the vehicle).

3. Not a snowstorm goes by where we don’t build a snowman. No shame in our game.

4. As soon as fresh pow hits, we’re skiing the slopes.

5. Baking cookies can totally be considered a winter pastime. As long as they’re snowflake- and/or reindeer-shaped.
