Simon Property Group provided me gift cards so I could shop during my trip to Kittery Premium Outlets. All opinions are my own

Yesterday was my first day of holiday vacation from my “real” job, so I celebrated the way any good blogger would … I grabbed a friend and headed up to Kittery Premium Outlets to do some last-minute holiday shopping.With over 100 stores to shop at, there is something for everyone and you’re bound to find an gift that lets you #GiveLove this holiday season. I was mainly shopping for myself, but whatever.

We started our day at Columbia Sportswear, where I gifted myself the Snow Eclipse jacket. I anticipate some cold, snowy days during the winter ahead, and this jacket will keep me perfectly toasty. Plus, it was on major sale at the store, so it was too good to pass up. I also grabbed some wool socks for my friend (you can never have enough socks) and a gift card for my boyfriend’s mom as a #GiveWarmth surprise.

With a bag full of warm gear, we next headed over to Lindt to fulfill all of my chocolate dreams. The Kittery Premium Outlet store has a hot chocolate bar, which is both amazing and something that not all locations have. I got the milk chocolate-orange flavor, and I couldn’t get enough. Something about the milk chocolate-orange combo just screams “HOLIDAYS” to me. After drooling over every. single. item. in the store, I settled on a pound of mixed-and-matched chocolates to bring to my aunt and uncle this holiday. The perfect #GiveLove and #GiveFun hostess gift.

Chocowasted and sugar high, we headed over to our final official stop – Yankee Candle. Yankee Candle stores always smell so decadent; it’s hard to walk buy without being drawn in. After sniffing all of the candles, I settled on one for myself, one for my friend and one for my aunt/uncle. Seasonal candles always make a nice hostess gift, and the glitzy holiday inventory is perfect if you want to #GiveSparkle. I mean, just look at those gold glitter reindeer!

After our first three stops, we made our way to Pac Sun, Old Navy, American Eagle and J.Crew to wrap up our holiday shopping. Like I said earlier, it was 95% for myself, but who says you can’t #GiveLove to yourself this holiday season? Just an hour north of Boston and across the water from Portsmouth, NH, Kittery Premium Outlets is the perfect spot for your last-minute holiday shopping needs.
