Coach gifts galore. There are so many gift choices at Coach. Sure, you know they have stylish handbags in all shapes and sizes, but they’ve gone way beyond that with accessories, clothing and the introduction of the beloved Rexy dinosaur, the fearless leader of the Coach Beasts which is a favorite with Julia Roberts, Chrissy Teigen, Emma Roberts and Michael B Jordan and Winona Ryder. Plus, they offer free on-site monogramming, which includes a variety of colors and designs, which can be added on a variety of handbag tags and accessories. And they recently launched the Craftsmanship Bar, in the Rodeo Drive location, in Los Angeles.  

What I especially love about Coach is they have pledged $3 million to one of my favorite charities – Step Up – to help mentor girls from under-served communities to dream big and fulfill their potential. So it’s a feel-good gift!

Sweet Treats Gift

I have never met anyone who didn’t like s’mores. I think if I did meet someone with an aversion to the sweet, gooey goodness I would wonder what the heck is wrong with them and either expect a reasonable explanation or just excuse myself and walk away. Since access to a campfire isn’t a regular occurrence in my life, I was excited to receive these cupcakes that aptly named, Gotta Have S’More. These unique treats come in multi-packs of various sizes and yummy flavors including the traditional dark chocolate and milk chocolate to delicious salted caramel, cookies and cream, and peanut butter cup. You can pick up or they can deliver in Los Angeles plus you can order them shipped to anywhere in the US. S’mores treats range in price from $16.50 – $105.
