My Holiday Gift Edit: Rajni Jacques

Fashion director and mom of two Rajni on her ultimate gift edit, plus the go-to outfit getting her through party season.

Is holiday shopping sending you into a tailspin? You need a little inspiration! The Awesome News asked successful, stylish moms to share their go-to gift picks, and what they’ll do to make this holiday season the best yet. This is the final of our gifting series – we hope you take away some fun ideas to make the holidays that little bit easier. 

MEET RAJNI JACQUES

Magazine fashion director (and our longtime street-style crush) Rajni Jacques is no stranger to giving of-the-moment trend advice. At home, however, the talented painter and mom of two (Diego, three, and 11-month-old Lucienne) keeps it super-simple in Hanes tees, vintage denim and Nikes or Vans. Plus the odd fabulous pair of heels for a fancy occasion! Throughout her career in both the publishing and advertising worlds, fashion’s biggest names have sought out Rajni’s talents – from Nylon, Glamour, Teen Vogue and Allure to brands like Christian Louboutin, Nike, Coach and Nordstrom.

Check out Rajni’s gift edit below…

For Moms

1. Mateo Secret Diamond Initial Ring: It’s simple, but a statement. So why not?!
2. Daily Paper Gowa Hoody and Gifa Pants: Just comfy and cozy. This set is everything. 

For Kids

3. FAO Schwarz 3D Spin Art Kit: I love anything that allows my kids to create and be artistic. It’s fun watching them maneuver and get so involved.
4. BeginAgain Animal Parade Puzzle & Play Set: It’s a learning toy made fun.

 

A LITTLE HOLIDAY Q&A…


What is the best gift you’ve ever received? 

Cheesy to say, but Diego and Lucienne.

And what’s on your wish list this year?

A vacation away from everyone. Or a classic tennis bracelet! Or both. 

Any holiday traditions you’re looking forward to sharing with your kids? 

I want to bake cookies with them the night before to get ready for Santa!

Ultimate five-minute party outfit? 

A black slip dress and heels or a to-the-knee boot that’s walkable and sturdy. Easy breezy.

Best (and easiest) holiday beauty trend this season? 

Clean and dewy skin – very bare-faced – with sultry, deep-red lipstick.

Who should we be following on Instagram?  

A huge thank-you to Rajni, Jenn, Claire and Ariel for being part of our holiday gift series.

My Holiday Gift Edit: Jenn Falik

Seasoned style and beauty expert Jenn knows where all the coolest gifts on the Internet are hiding!

Is holiday shopping sending you into a tailspin? You need a little inspiration! For this four-part series, The Awesome News asked successful, stylish moms to share their go-to gift picks, and what they’ll do to make this holiday season more manageable and memorable. 

MEET JENN FALIK

For almost 15 years, Jenn Falik has been maybe not the last word in style and beauty advice – but certainly the most honest one! Whether it’s through her blog (jennfalik.com), her Instagram (@jennfalik) or on TV, the mom of two has found incredible success as the no-spin, knowledgeable best friend who tells us where the Internet’s most genius, life-bettering products and services are hiding, from the perfect photo app to personalized pet food bowls. Jenn’s TODAY Show segment, #BetterBasics, is an addictive show-and-tell of the best versions of things we use everyday – so who better to help us with unique holiday gift ideas

Check out Jenn’s favorite gifts below…

For Moms

1. Monarch Market Rainbow Heart Necklaces: Obsessed. They feel nostalgic and timeless all at once, and they come in different sizes so perfect for layering, too.
2. Paris Texas Boots: The toe is somewhere between a pointed and rounded style, which makes these boots not only super-comfy, but also extra easy to dress up or style casual. I need these because, as I wrote on my blog, the boots I have worn for 10 years have finally given out. The passing of the boot torch is a big one for me. 🙂

For Kids

3. Betsy Enzensberger popsicle sculptures: I am in love – they would brighten up the girls’ rooms so much! These little works of art are something they can keep forever.
4. Old-school Roller Skates: I think my kids would have so much fun in matching pairs of this pink-wheeled style – and of course I would have to get a pair for myself! 

 

A LITTLE HOLIDAY Q&A…

 

What’s the best gift you’ve ever received?

A Gucci bracelet that my husband surprised me with on Valentine’s Day last year. It was the first piece of jewelry he has ever gotten me that was totally ME. I love it so much and wear it all the time! 

Is there a special holiday tradition you do every year?

We try to do a sleepover in NYC with the girls every year. We stay at the Plaza Hotel, see a show of some sort, have dinner at Joe’s Shanghai (the soup dumplings are our collective family favorite), and eat breakfast in the Palm Court before going home. It’s such a special treat and definitely my favorite tradition.

Say you had five minutes to get ready for a party. What do you wear?

A LoveShackFancy dress and either sparkly Golden Goose sneakers or metallic boots. And a Lele Sadoughi knot headband covered in pearls or crystals. 

Any beauty trends you’re excited to try this season?

I am not much of a beauty trend person. For me, it is always about one thing and one thing only: glossy, glowy skin. As long as I have my blendSMART makeup brush, IT Cosmetics foundation and Fleshpot Eye and Cheek Gloss, I am set.

Who should we follow on Instagram?

@thebuyguide for under-the-radar shopping finds that are consistently life-changing.
@jenna_crandall for the best fashion picks at every price (her Insta Stories are the stuff that full carts are made of)!
@therlb because nothing makes [my daughter] Goldie or I smile more than seeing her doppelgänger Gemma [Rachel’s daughter] putting on lipstick and checking herself out in the mirror.
