Christmas Gifts at Kohl’s and a Special Giveaway

Faux Fur Jackets from the J Lo collection at Kohl’s

Our family is loving Kohl’s this holiday season and that’s no exaggeration. Why you might ask? They literally have something for everyone.  The store shelves are fully stocked  with some great Christmas gifts and this post is to tell you all about my personal picks.  Some of the items, can as a surprise to me.  I didn’t know that Kohl’s had such great faux fur jackets in their Jennifer Lopez collection.  The two jackets pictured about are priced right now on sale for $50.00.  I bought my mom the collarless crinkle faux fur jacket in black (right side of picture) and it’s stunning.  These jackets truly look lux for less.

Here are a few other items I bought for my family that are good deals right now at Kohl’s.

For the Cook of the House:   Bobby Flay Hammered silver bowl on sale for $29.99, Wonderful Cookbooks by Wolfgang Puck,  Bobby Flay, Good Housekeeping and more.   There are also great deals on Racheal Ray pots and pans right now.

For the Home:  ELLE Home Decor, J Lo Candles and the Food Network Electronic Wine Opener for  $25.00.  Also take a look at the iHome accessories to go with your iPhone/iPad.  I bought an iHome alarm clock ($50.) that works with my iPhone. The piece recharges the phone and set’s an alarm from the phone to help you wake up.

For the Kids:  Kohl’s has some unique Kid toys. Look for the Kohl’s Cares label on toys like Skippy Jon Jones, the Wizard of OZ book at the accompanying TOTO plush toy (priced at $5.00 for both.)  There’s also a good selection of dolls including the always popular Barbie.

For the Fashionista:  There are many great fashions at Kohl’s this season.  For my little niece, I’ve been buying a lot of the Lauren Conrad collection.  For myself, I’m still in deep love with the Narcisco Rodriguez collaboration.  This has to be one of the best budget designer collections  ever.  If you haven’t checked it out yet, do give it a look.  For jewelry and accessories, my favorite is still Vera Wang.  I own several of the Simply Vera rings and flower pendants.  Look like luxury pieces,  but they are afforable. I also like the Vera handbags.  I have one Vera bag that I have been carrying now for four year, and it’s still in very good condition.  ELLE has some outrageous shoes  and sparkling tops that would be great for holiday or New Year’s parties.

For the Man on your list: There are good deals for men’s coats and ties from the Kohl’s clothing collection including Nike, Croft and Barrow and even the sweaters in the Marc Anthony collection.  But probably the hottest item for the guy on your list is all the tech gadgets and games  they have.   There are boxing gloves, golf putting sets, poker sets, tool kits and multiple iPhone/iPad accessories.
