December 12, 2020 by Lila Delilah

Wow! It was a busy week. We are hitting that time of year where just about anything you can think of can be found on sale. 

This week, the bulk of my shopping has been concentrated on gift buying. I updated the gift guides with a few more finds that I found interesting. The men’s gift guide got upgraded with a few tech items including this Bose indoor/outdoor speaker that’s $250 from $300. I got my youngest daughter this fluffy chair from Pottery Barn Teen ($100.from $100) and she practically slept in the first night. You can see more great gift ideas for older girls over here. I also have some gift ideas on what to get the most discriminating women or hard to please clients. 

We posted dozens of great sales this week but there are few honorable mentions that we didn’t get to fully explore. The most exciting find happened upon MadaLuxe Vault. They have an amazing assortment of items from Bottega Veneta and Bottega Veneta home that are discounted at about 50% off. Here is a great classic wallet for $259 from $450 or a tissue box cover is $249 from $540. The site also has a great selection of Gucci scarves discounted to $179 from $400 and an assortment of Dior bags reduced 35% off.
