Before a joyous day of feasting on turkey and indulging in pumpkin pie, solidify your Black Friday shopping plans. If you’re like us and plan to tune into Telemundo 51, you may see a familiar setting on Accesso Total! Lifestyle expert, Kathy Buccio, recently visited Aventura Mall to find the top gifts for 2020, all under $50. From tasty treats to fancy fragrances, here are some of the items you’ll see.
If staying healthy is at the top of your New Year’s resolutions, invest in the iTouch Slim activity tracker from Macy’s. It will monitor your calories, heart rate, sleep and more. At just $49, it’s a steal!
2020 has been the year of comfort. Fuzzy Criss Cross Slides from Aerie are perfect for a lucky friend who works from home. They also come in a variety of colors to suit every style – At $25, why not buy two pair?
Aerie is located on the Upper Level, near JCPenney.
Give the gift of relaxation with a set from Lush. Priced at $43, the brand’s Winter Wonderland set has everything you need for an at-home pamper session. It includes the brand’s best-selling Rose Jam shower gel, Sultana of Soap Bar, Sakura body lotion, Rub Rub Rub shower scrub and, of course, a signature Lush bath bomb!
Lush Cosmetics is located on the Lower Level, near Bloomingdale’s.
We all know how popular The Mandalorian has become. Season two just premiered on Disney+ and we can’t get enough of The Child, affectionately known as Baby Yoda. For $25, you can snag an adorable plush from the Disney Store. Keep your eyes out for other fun Mandalorian toys as well.
Disney Store is located on the Lower Level adjacent to JCPenney.
Do you have a kid (or kid-at-heart) on your list? Head over to Peppermint Park for one-of-a-kind toys and unique gift options for kids of all ages. The $50 Bluetooth Karaoke Microphone & Disco Ball is on Kathy’s radar and will definitely be a scene stealer at all your holiday parties and game nights this season!
Peppermint Park is located on the Upper Level.
One of Aventura Mall’s newest offerings is the iconic French bakery, Ladurée. Surprise the host of your next holiday party with a box of their legendary macarons. The Box Napoleon allows you to mix-and-match 12 macarons and offers a variety of flavors, such as vanilla, raspberry, strawberry, orange blossom, and the Marie Antoinette – one of Kathy’s favorites.
Ladurée will open in early December on the Lower Level across from Gucci. Until then, you can still enjoy macarons and more at the carriage on the Lower Level by Center Court.
If you’re looking for a unique gift for your hostess, Anthropologie is a one-stop shop. Along with accessories, candles, and beauty items – the store is known for its selection of gorgeous home décor. Kathy’s favorite is an eye-catching glass cake stand for just $5.
Anthropologie is located on the Lower Level near Bloomingdale’s.
We all have that one person who is difficult to shop for. Jo Malone’s classic candles come in a variety of scents and make the perfect “safe” gift. Not only are they fragrant, but the sleek design will complement any décor style. At $36, the mini travel candle made Kathy’s must-have gift list.
Jo Malone is located on the Upper Level of Luxury Court.
If you’re not sure what fragrance to gift someone, look for sets! They provide great value and allow the recipient to try multiple scents at once. Kathy’s favorite for women is Sephora’s $50 Hermès set, which includes four miniature bottles of the brand’s best-selling perfume.
Sephora is located on the Lower Level, near Macy’s.
Finally, give a unique gift that will be cherished for years to come by arranging a (contactless) family photo with Santa at his Workshop. Don’t forget to reserve your place ahead of time at https://www.whereissanta.com/florida/aventuramall.
