      Shop By Color: Holiday 2022 Gift Guide

      It's that time of year when we realize the giving season is heading our way at rapid speed. It'll be a somewhat familiar holiday time because while we are still very much aware that there are certain health precautions we still must take for the safety of everyone, a few of us will be coming together in person to celebrate our love for each other, albeit in very strategic ways.

      One tradition that won't change for us is the exchange of gifts and tokens of caring. I made sure that I got an early start this year since almost every present will be sent via some form of delivery service and this year will continue to be quite a challenge. So while I was in the midst of my shopping frenzy, I thought I'd try to help you with your gifting adventure! 


      Pantone Color Trend Forecast Autumn/Winter 22/23 

      Color swatches from Pantone. 

      I've gathered some pretty cool gifts that are sure to accommodate most budgets, from wallet-friendly to luxury. I hope there's something for everyone on your holiday shopping list. Since I live and breathe by beautiful, vibrant colors, I curated this gift guide using the colors I was inspired by from the Pantone Autumn/Winter 22/23 Trend Report!

      It's a color palette that is not at all classic but exudes grand expression while maintaining a sense of calm vibrancy. These shades meant to excite but will enhance your desire to create unique self statements. Many of the fabulous items you'll find in this Gift Guide are from my great partners at Macy's

      So, get out your gift list, have lots of fun and shop-by-color now!

      Rosebud and Festival Fuchsia

      Rosebud and Festival Fuchsia - JulRe Designs LLC

      Purple hues like Rosebud and Festival Fuchsia combine the fiery, passionate red with the calm and stable blue in unstoppable and vibrant hues.  Who else do we know who is fiery, passionate, stable, calm and unstoppable all at once? Moms, of course!

      We chose this luxe duo to celebrate our moms.  Even though we here at the Color Lab celebrate moms everywhere every day, it’s always nice to do something special for mom on Mother’s Day.  I love Mother’s Day and make sure to celebrate the moms in my life every year with a special thank you for their hard work in raising the next generation of little thinkers and doers.  

      This year I decided to do something extra special for Mother’s Day through this week's Color Craze.  I’ve personally collected my favorite gift ideas featuring Rosebud and Festival Fuchsia finds. Find my ultimate Mother’s Day gift guide below.  With gifts for so many different kinds of moms, you’ll be sure to find the perfect gift (or maybe even a treat for yourself)!

      First up is a special recipe for those looking to go the homemade route for their Mother's Day gift!  This Roasted Blueberry Creme Fraiche Ice Cream from Savory Simple is an indulgent dessert sure to please moms with a sweet tooth.

      This ice cream is as decadent as it is fresh and fruity, with rich roasted blueberries for a luxurious take on dessert.  This recipe is a labor of love, so who better to make it for than mom? Find the recipe here!

      Next up, we have the traditional.  Here are my picks for some traditional stylish fashions, housewares and accessories for every mom in your life:

      1. For the homebody mom:  Simpatico Hobnail Glass Candle

      2. For the sporty mom:  Fitbit Alta

      3. For the working mom:  Urban CoCo Women’s Drape Front Open Cardigan

      4. For the mom who deserves a splurge gift:  Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer

      5. For the jet-setting mom:  Lug Nap Sack Pillow and Blanket

      6. For the green thumb mom:  Floral Supply Online Spring Garden Vase in Purple Passion

      7. For the cutting edge mom:  Butter London Nail Laquer in Easy Peasy

      Whether you opt for a traditional wrapped gift or a simple homemade pleasure, mom is sure to love whatever way you celebrate her this Mother’s Day.  If you’d like to share any of your Mother’s Day gifts or celebrations with me, be sure to tag @JulReDesigns on Instagram and use the hashtag #colorfilledlife.
