According to Racked, last year 2 million shoppers bought Starbucks egift cards on Christmas Eve, which means that $2 million of their friends and loved ones received said gift cards on Christmas--making them the most popular/easiest gift of the entire gifting season. I mean think about--that's what everyone wants, right? Sure, it's not an iPhone 6, but it's something you're definitely going to use (probably within weeks of getting it--unlike most gift cards that just collect dust). And everyone loves coffee (or decaf or tea...), whether you're a stressed out college student or a new mom or someone who's personal mantra is printed on this mug. It's just a good gift--and let's be honest, it's slim pickings right now in the 11th hour. So shop now:
Starbucks 'Red Cup' egift card ($10, $25, $50 or $100)
Starbucks 'Merry Christmas' eGift Card ($10, $25, $50 or $100)
Starbucks Holiday eGift Card ($10, $25, $50 or $100)
Who thinks pastels are only for spring? Certainly not the stylish New York ambassador Taylor Swift who stepped out in the cold city wearing a powder blue ASOS Boyfriend Coat ($72, down from $151) and a nude-colored bag. Her Easter-egg palette was refreshing amidst the blacks, grays, and browns of winter. Plus, her cozy, oversize coat is on sale for $72. Last minute gift-idea for someone special (and yes, that includes yourself) or just a quick cold-weather pick me up (seasonal depression is a real thing). Grab this coat before everyone else does!

Headed somewhere fun for the holiday season? Lucky! Before you head out, however, we thought we'd help you out with a few super helpful insider tips and tricks to make traveling a little less stressful. Let's face it: the airports are going to be hella crowded, there's always the potential for snow (and therefore flight delays) and let's not forget last-minute luggage drama. We can't guarantee nothing will go wrong en route to your destination, but these travel hacks will definitely help ensure some things go smoothly. 1. Don't pack what you can't carry. This may seem obvious, but it can't be overstated. You may think some nice fellow will help you lift your stuffed carry-on into the overhead bin, but he might not. That's why it's so important that you only travel with what you can manage by yourself. 2. Carry an empty, reusable water bottle in your purse. Everyone knows you can't carry liquids through the security checkpoint, but there's no rule about water bottles. Put an empty one in your purse, then fill it up at a water fountain once you're through security. You'll save at least $3 on an overpriced Poland Spring bottle, plus it's better for the environment. 3. Sign up for TSA pre-check. It's probably a little late for this one for Christmas travel, but if you fly often it's well worth the $100 application fee. If you're approved, you'll be able to bypass long security checkpoint lines at select airports. Click here to apply. 4. Invest in bright or patterned luggage. This way you'll have no problem identifying it on the baggage claim carousel. 5. Re-book a cancelled flight over the phone. What happens when a flight gets cancelled? Everyone rushes the ticket agent to book the next available one. To avoid the huge line and get faster service, just call your airline to make alternate arrangements. 6. Designate your checked bags "fragile." If you're checking luggage, ask the ticket agent to put a fragile sticker on your bags. Not only will this ensure nothing gets stacked on top of your bags, but it also usually means your bags make it onto the baggage carousel first. 7. Avoid baggage fees. It may seem like every airline charges you to check luggage, but both Southwest and JetBlue let you check one bag for free. 8. Outsmart pickpockets. Airports are like breeding ground for petty thieves, so in addition to keeping a close grip on your personal belongings, consider having a decoy wallet more easily accessible than your real wallet. Another option? Keep your cash, cards and ID in different places so a thief is only likely to make off with one, not all of these essentials. 9. Pack your own blanket. Not only will it keep your warm on a super air conditioned flight, but it can also serve as a buffer when you need to rest your head on the germ-covered seat back or window. Forgot to pack your gifts? Buy a bunch of these e-gift cards ASAP.

We'll be the first to admit that we were a little nervous when Coach announced they were raising their prices back in May. Like everyone else in the world, we love their bags and shoes, but we aren't working with an endless budget here.
That's exactly why we couldn't sit on this could news: not only did we find a bunch of Coach accessories within our price range, but tons of items are even less than $100! We're talking Coach's signature butter soft leather for as little as $44, ladies. It's all going down at the Coach semi-annual sale, so we suggest you shop early while there are still plenty of amazing steals.

With plenty of time spent traveling, relaxing at home, or on vacation this holiday, why not wrap 2014 up with a good book? This year has offered so many great works, from Amy Poehler's highly anticipated Yes, Please to Andy Cohen's highly entertaining The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year, and you'll have plenty of chances to read (laugh, and learn) your way into the New Year. Whether you're into Young Adult novels, memoirs, or pop culture-centric essays, check out our slideshow to see what books you'll be cuddling up to this holiday.
Mansur Gavriel and Burberry hit it big in 2014—Mansur Gavriel for managing to design a really plain collection of handbags that people went nuts over, and Burberry for designing a blanket (that they call a poncho) that was literally on every celeb and socialite in existence. But when a designer nails the next big thing, it's only a matter of time before other brands want a piece of the action, so it really didn't surprise us when we found copies of the Mansur Gavriel bucket bag at Forever21 and the Burberry poncho at Choies. No lie, we love ourselves a good copy when it's a lot cheaper than the real thing (hello Sam Edelman 'rock-stud pumps), but it's totally strange when a big brand rips off another big brand—which is sort of what Tory Burch and Jennifer Fisher did to Vita Fede this year. Those two designers may have gotten away with it, but other brands got called out. Remember back in June when Kaiser Karl was handed a lawsuit by New Balance? Or how about when Converse went after not one, not two, but 31 brands for knocking off the Chuck Taylor's? Let's continue on this walk down memory lane to remember 14 notorious knock-offs that went down in 2014.
Don't wait until it's too late! We're giving away 100 RITUALS Zensation Foaming Shower Gel, but your chance to win one is just about gone.

Children sure are cute--but that doesn’t necessarily mean you want them at your wedding. From tantrums on the dance floor to speaking out of turn during the vows or toasts, kids can bring lots of laughs or make you cringe. Before you choose whether or not to invite them to a part of your big day, consider these eight questions. Are you doing this to make others happy? If you’re worried you’ll offend your family and friends with kids if you don’t invite their little ones, that’s not a good enough reason to do it. You should genuinely want these children at the event. Do you need to invite everyone’s children? Some etiquette experts will say if you invite one person’s child, you need to invite everyone’s kids. We disagree: Whether it’s nieces or nephews or your BFF’s child who you’re very close to, it’s okay to invite little ones you truly want at the wedding. That doesn’t mean you have to invite every guest’s child. Will they be in the wedding? Do you want the kids to simply be guests--or are you looking for them to play a specific role in the ceremony? Talk to your fiancé about that before you ask the parents. Do you have to invite the flower girl and ring bearer to the reception? In a word, yes. But this is something you can talk to their parents about, who might be fine having a grandparent or babysitter pick them up after photos so mom and dad can have a good time at the party. Do their parents really want them there? Many moms and dads will look at your wedding as a night out--away from the kids. So before you extend the invite, why ask them if they truly want their children to be there. Is this a family-friendly wedding? You know what kind of party you want, so be honest. If you envision lots of drinking and dancing (like a mini Mardi Gras), then it might be best to keep the kiddies at home. If this is more of a relaxed vibe, then children should feel right at home. Can you afford childcare? Many couples that invite kids to their wedding also hire an on-site babysitter who can occupy the children with games and activities during the reception. Ask one of the guests if they have a regular babysitter who can come along (but you should pay for her services), or see if there is a teenage relative willing to take on the duties (you need to pay her, of course). You might also think about hiring a children’s entertainer, such a magician or face painter who can keep the kids happy in a separate area of the venue. Are you prepared to go with the flow? Expect the unexpected when it comes to kids. They can be perfect angels or little devils, so you need to be able to roll with the punches and not let any bad behavior ruin your day. Check out the 14 biggest celeb weddings of 2014 and how to interview potential wedding vendors.
We know dressing like a hobo can seem stylish, but we are on the fence about Jennifer Lawrence's look. She wore an Isabel Marant Hooded Caftan Wool Blend Coat ($966, down from $1,380) while signing autographs outside a hotel in NYC. She looks pretty boho chic, we admit it. And while the comfy hooded coat is on sale and would be perfect for cozy winter days, we don't know if we love it enough to spend $966. What do you think? It's all yours below...

Consider this your early warning: Ted Baker US just did a bunch of new markdowns and they are hella good. We're talking up to 50% off dresses, sweaters, shoes and more. Never shopped Ted Baker before? Well, it's a British brand, which basically means that everything they make is cool. We're particularly fond of their colorful, structured dresses, but the coats and jackets are pretty killer, too. The sale literally just started, so we suggest you get there fast. You don't need a coupon code or anything to save--those crazy low prices are the real deal.
With only a few days left before Christmas, retailers are doubling down on promotions and offers to get people to finish off their holiday shopping there. Madewell is one of them: they're going all in with a 30% off sitewide sale today plus free shipping by Christmas. Use the code WRAPITUP--perhaps when picking yourself up one of these the lafayette bucket bag ($198)? brushed plaid cardigan ($110), ultimate leather motorcycle jacket ($528), the maddie heel in speckle ($139.99, down from $198), the lafayette bucket bag ($198) all 30% off with code WRAPITUP.
So, it's the weekend before Christmas and you STILL need a gift. Don't panic. We saved the best gift for last and it's an eGift Card. Not only will the recipient love it, gift cards are the most requested gift for the eighth straight year, but you also don't have to deal with a card and wrapping paper. #WINNING. We rounded up 40 places where you can just click to send a gift certificate to your friends and family. It's THAT easy. From Shopbop and Nordstrom, to Amazon and iTunes, here are the best places you can get an eGift card online: Shopbop Amazon Nordstrom Zappos Kate Spade J.Crew Bloomingdale's 6pm Gap Madewell Banana Republic Sephora Starbucks Tiffany Target Saks Bliss Piperlime Net-A-Porter Old Navy SPANX Topshop Macy's Barnes & Noble H&M Neiman Marcus iTunes Anthropologie Tory Burch Bath & Body Works The Limited Urban Outfitters Steve Madden American Eagle CB2 JC Penney Lord & Taylor Pier 1 Imports Sunglass Hut The Body Shop Victoria's Secret Williams Sonoma
It's easy to get wrapped up in choosing new dresses, blouses and sweaters, but what about some extraordinary undergarments? Every girl knows that what's on the outside is only as good as what's supporting her underneath. Here at SHEfinds we recently had the chance to put a few Playtex bras to the test and I have to admit, I think you'll want to try one, too. And luckily, they have styles for just about every style and support preference. The Fittingly Fabulous Underwire bra has a 4-way support system design, so it's basically the perfect everyday option. We're also really digging the Signature Florals Underwire with Gel Straps because it's crazy comfortable and offers hidden side support and natural shaping. Looking for something a little sexier? Try the Body Revelation Underwire with lace, which is guaranteed to complement your every curve. Finally, if you prefer a wire free bra that still offers maximum boost, give the 18 hour Ultimate Lift and Support Wirefree a go. Of course, you could also just get them all. They're really that good. Shop the complete collection at playtexfits.com. PS: We're giving one lucky winner the bra of her choice! To enter to win, simply leave a comment below about why you need a new bra.
