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.

Between getting up to put the bird in the oven and clearing the dessert plates, feeding the whole crew gets exhausting. The best way to say thanks to your favorite coffee-drinking host or hostess (besides offering to help with the dishes)? Café-style goods, right in their own kitchen. Maybe they’ll even brew you a cup while they whip up some next-morning pancakes.

The holiday season’s been crazy. Now, go ahead and celebrate. (That’s our plan.)

And, on slightly softer note – we’ve been really moved by this. Check it out, then pay it forward. That’s what the holidays are about, after all.

In honor of the holiday season, I asked a few of my favorite tastemakers to share their best holiday gifts (both given and received). Their answers may surprise you.

Tastemakers Talk Best Gifts Given & Received

 

CHRISTINA CALDWELL, Online Director, W magazine
“My favorite gifts are always the sentimental ones – my father engraving his vintage Rolex for me, the blanket a friend knitted for the birth of my son, and a very simple gold star necklace from my mom that was the first present my father gave her 35 years ago.”

NEIL BLUMENTHAL, Warby Parker
“Do genetic gifts count? I endowed my teething two-year-old son, Griffin, with a love of Philly-style hard pretzels. Best gift received? Easy. Optimus Prime Transformer when I was eight years old. I’d just seen the animated movie the day before, so I was primed for maximum gift impact.”

Meet Sam, a Manager of Partner Marketing here at Rue. She’s the point person for some of our very important partners, and she makes sure everyone is happy on both ends (and that our marketing looks awesome, of course). Check out the gifts she’s picked for those lucky enough to make her list.

For my husband: “He’s been hinting around for a new watch and this could be the one. I also think that it will look great on my wrist as well!”

For my sister: “She’s an avid reader and adores her Kindle. This cover will be perfect for her.”

For my son: “He’s 14 months old, and reading stories with him before bed is the best time of my day. This was one of my favorite books growing up and I know that he would love it, too.”

Find all these gifts (and lots, lots more) in our Get Gifty: Our Holiday Gift Shop Boutique, open now.
