Amy O. necklaces are the business! I have both this Glitz Carraway necklace and their Rocker De Lempicka necklace, and it was really hard perusing the site and not wanting to snatch up all the baubles. The Glitz Carraway is very art deco glamour and goes with practically everything. Find more pieces from this New York-based store at select boutiques or online.
As you might already know, I rock with the Boy Meets Girl brand. I already have so many of their great pieces, and this personalized hoodie is yet another fave. You can get one for a close friend or family member and customize it to say both of your names or memorable words. Right now, you can actually get 15% off your order at Boy Meets Girl until December 31 with code MUSE15 at checkout. But if you don't want to wait, then check the end of this post because I've teamed up with Boy Meets Girl to give away the @You/@Me hoodie to one lucky winner! It's snugly; it's cute; it's personalized.

I know everyone and their mommas shop Baublebar, but I've actually never really delved into the boutique until recently when I couldn't take my eyes off these Gold Text Collars in Cool, Happy and Love. I suggest getting all three and giving two to your besties, and then wearing them together at the same time like a glam, gold chain gang. Wow, talk about a play on words!
AHHH, I love Gillian Flynn! First I read Gone Girl then Dark Places and I just finished Sharp Objects, and I'm in love with the way she writes. I recommend you read all three of her books so we can spam Twitter feeds with our thoughts on them. And yes, Gone Girl is my favorite because it's one of the best books ever written. That's a fact.
You might remember these Wicked Good Cupcakes from an episode of Shark Tank. We sent some as Mother's Day gifts earlier this year, but obviously, they're good for any time of year in flavors like Chocolate Lab, Karat Kake and more. Ooohhh...karat kake.
Seriously, you know how much I love to personalize everything! How cute would these monogram sunglasses by DKM Accessories be with "MUSE" on the side? You can customize your sunnies with your own initials or the initials of a friend. This is a gift guide after all.

Two of my favorite stores for finding unique gifts are Fab and Uncommon Goods. These city map glasses are great examples why. These were created by Boston-based designer Brian Johnson, which means they were made in the U.S. of A! The hubs loves maps so this might be the perfect gift for him, especially since they are dishwasher safe and come with maps of San Francisco, Austin, Atlanta, Seattle and more!
Speaking of Fab, here is a great gift for the Walking Dead fan in your life (which is probably you). Not sure if these Funko bobble heads come in other characters from the show, but that doesn't matter because Michonne is the best character of them all...next to Norman Reedus' Daryl Dixon, of course. FYI: I've seen some in the past for The Nightmare Before Christmas and Game of Thrones.
I have no idea why I haven't been using this e.l.f. Daily Moisture Stick since forever. A balm with aloe, Shea and avocado that I can put on my face or body, and comes in travel size for only $6? Yeah, let's put that in a shopping cart already.
