Hilldale Luxe List Gift Guide

Spending the holidays in Wisconsin was a big adjustment for me when I first moved to the Midwest. I had an annual tradition of shopping with my aunt & gramma. We'd make our lists (& check them twice), warm up with some hot chocolate, and shop till we dropped. I was so excited to find Hilldale, a beautiful shopping center when I moved to Madison. It felt like a little slice of home during the holidays. They have all my favorite stores, delicious eateries & amazing service-- so I'm able to start new traditions here in my new home.

I'm thrilled to partner with Hilldale & their stores & restaurants to bring you their luxe list gift guide. A specially curated list of shops & items for every person on your list-- all available locally for all of  my Wisconsin readers! I'll be sharing my picks on the @lapetitefashionista instagram throughout the month of December. All of the pieces featured are available at Hilldale to shop in-person!

Hilldale Luxe List Gift Guide: all pieces are available at Hilldale

Sperry | Their cold weather boots are warm and stylish, making snow days way more enjoyable. Hurray for gifts that are both functional and fashionable!

The North Face | The chic insulated coats & accessories are a must for Wisconsin winters. I love the dusty pastels & cozy textures in their winter collection. 

Michael KorsBring on the sparkle. Glam gifts galore at Michael Kors! From metallic clutches to pom keychains, there are so-worth-it splurges & little luxuries in store.

Mes Amies Dress Boutique | So much pretty holiday party dress inspiration here. The sequin dress & brocade floral coat couldn’t be more LPF! Don't forget about the sparkly accessories to match.

Morgan's Shoes | No holiday look is complete without the shoes! Find something for the entire family here- metallic UGG boots for the kiddies, statement-making suede for her & luxurious leather for the guys.

Evereve | Layer up for winter in a festive faux fur lined plaid vest & colorful cold weather accessories from Evereve. Let their staff help outfit you in head-to-toe warmth and style.

Madewell | A leather clutch made personal with a monogram makes a classic keepsake. The quirky llama bag tag would be adorable attached to the outside of a wrapped present.

Anthropologie | There’s no better holiday activity than cozying up with a good book. Loving this glam throw blanket & a cookbook. Give the gift of comfort AND joy!

Sur La Table | Pair Mexican spiced hot chocolate with a cheery mug and decadent (& made just for Sur La Table) salted caramel toffee bark for the ultimate hostess gift. I personally love the mittens with a flask hidden inside (in token Badger red).

Gigi's Cupcakes | Holiday entertaining is a breeze with Gigi's cupcakes. They taste as good as they look -- and come in a delectable variety of holiday flavors (& gluten free options).

Twigs | Twigs is a beautifully curated (& newly expanded) local shop at Hilldale. I’m currently coveting their gorgeous gifts - from Tory Burch penguin cosmetic bag to luxurious leather Marc Jacobs bag & sparkly bangles.

White House Black Market | Stop into the store to find the perfect holiday party look. These velvety sandals have the perfect amount of sparkle & there's a clutch to match... seriously stunning!

Lucky Brand | I stopped here to check off the guys on my list. Give them a cozy flannel winter wardrobe update & add in a cool keychain bottle opener for post-Christmas chilling.

The University Bookstore | A must-stop for Badger fans. There's a huge selection of game day pieces in trendy silhoeuttes. I love to pick up pieces for m out-of-state family to show them some Wisco love from across the country.

The Home Market | Stepping into this local shop feels like home. Deck the halls for the holidays or gift a locally poured candle or handmade platter.

Infusion Chocolates | These handmade chocolates are works of art and (almost) too pretty to eat. Made with high quality & fresh ingredients, a gift from these local chocolatiers will definitely put you on the "nice" list.

Great Dane Brewing Company | A great local spot to dine on local specialties (don't forget the cheese curds!) -- they also brew their own beer. Pick up a six-pack after dinner to enjoy throughout the holidays.

Kate Spade New York | Kate Spade's store is a colorful feast for the eyes. Shop their whimsical jewelry or paper goods for stocking stuffers, or gift a boldly colored leather bag to the accessory-lover on your list.

Pier South | The southern girl in me has found a little bit of home in Pier South. They carry hard-to-find brands like Lilly Pulitzer, Vineyard Vines, and Lauren James for the preppy ladies & guys!

Title Nine | Winters sports are made chic in must-have Patagonia jackets, warm Smartwool socks, and beautifully knit sweater dresses. Apres ski just got a whole lot cuter at Title Nine.

Playthings | The kids in your life will love a gift from Playthings - a beautifully curated store full of unique children's toys & games. The fairy door set totally reminded me of my childhood & my cousin's kids would love playing Top That!

LUSH | I love the beautifully wrapped gift sets at LUSH containing their all-natural bath bombs, shower gels, and shampoos. The beauty queen in your life will love seeing one of their packages under the tree.

Motherhood Maternity | Moms-to-be will absolutely have the Snoogle on their list (just google it!). Pamper them with some luxurious & sweetly scented lotion.

Cornblooms | This locally owned shop stocks all of Brighton's best collections & a curated collection of stylish shoes & winter boots. I love how the Swarovski crystals sparkle in this bracelet & necklace set.

Bowl of Heaven | I love stopping in for an acai bowl break at this local spot. So delicious.. so healthy & makes an awesome gift card (my brother-in-law bought me one last year for the holidays)!

Pasqual's | This is my go-to spot for Margarita's in town! For the holidays they've created gorgeous giftable sets of their specially made Tequila & famous seasoned chips.

Ulla Eyewear | Stop by locally owned Ulla Eyewear for beautiful statement-making shades & indie designer frames. I’m digging this necklace that doubles as a sunglasses holder & watch for Kyle!

Which spot are you most excited to shop for the holidays? Madison-area readers & Wisconsin friends, be sure to stop by Hilldale to check out all of their beautiful holiday gifts! You can also follow them on Instagram at @thehilldaleeye to get the latest holiday news!

Hello Lauren, Nikki Here! I'm so glad that you have a lot of options for this Holiday Season gift guide list. I'm so excited to shop also but because of the hectic schedule in work, I think I cannot make it anymore. I will just go online shopping to make my wish list come true. This Holiday Season, my wish lists are just simple, a pair of Christmas pajama sets for my baby boy, a set of watch for my husband and me, a sports bra for a running outfit, a sweater dress for my Christmas Eve outfit, and lastly, perfect kitchen tools for my cooking this Holiday Season. Ah, I think I will look only for an online shop that completes my package needs. Thanks that I found the website of, they have listed all my Holiday wish lists. Thanks Lauren for sharing your inspiring post here.

Basically, the technology essay replicates the structure and the main principles of a standard essay with a few peculiarities of its own.
We offer you to study the procedure of writing the technology essays on a concrete example. Let's suggest your topic sounds something like "Influence of Modern Technology on Society". The goal of your custom essay is to describe and discuss complicated relations between technology and society. You are to clarify how some particular technology affects people. You are free to illustrate the influence on any sphere of modern life that your technology has affected most.

First of all, people describe technology as ever-changing. Today new innovations become obsolete fast. People have become increasingly competitive and every year, new ideas and technologies are released to challenge the ones in the market. In a few months, a piece of technology can be released to the market and almost immediately rival companies will as well release theirs. Technological ideas keep getting unleashed as the world becomes more involved in exploring and utilizing the resources nature provides. Nothing seems to survive this fast paced world and unless one maintains the pace and moves with the wave, they get left behind..Read more about technology at technology essay

The subject of Philosophy and its subcategories have been widely discussed in both the Western and non-Western world albeit with different focuses. Philosophy includes many different subfields involving investigation into our existence. These subfields include epistemology, ethics, logic, metaphysics, philosophy of science, social and political philosophy, and Metaphilosophy. Epistemology focuses on the study of Knowledge, also known as “Theory of Knowledge”. Ethics involves the study of moral values and rules, Logic; the study of reasoning. Metaphysics is the study of being and knowing also known as the principles of reality. Read more at Meditation essay

One of the first points to be clear about is that a philosophical essay is quite different from an essay in most other subjects. That is because it is neither a research paper nor an exercise in literary self-expression. It is not a report of what various scholars have had to say on a particular topic. It does not present the latest findings of tests or experiments. And it does not present your personal feelings or impressions. Instead, it is a reasoned defense of a thesis.
