Chocolat Frey: The Perfect Holiday Gift

I am super excited to share with all of you THE perfect holiday gift of the season – Chocolat Frey!!


This holiday season, Chocolat Frey is the absolute perfect holiday gift. I created this gorgeous gift basket filled with some of my favorites from Chocolat Frey. Their packaging is pure perfection, easy to open, festive, and looks beautiful. Each product has it’s own unique, distinct, delicious taste. I adore how you can taste every single ingredient. Everything blends together to create a smooth, indulgent, chocolaty adventure that makes you want to come back for more (and more, and more, and more…). Giving Chocolat Frey is a lovely gift idea for anyone who is a lover of chocolate, sweets, or just craves an incredible extravagant experience.

Chocolat Frey is premium authentic Swiss chocolate that started thanks to two brothers, Robert and Max Frey in 1887. They had a passion for creating fine Swiss chocolate products. This is the foundation of the company’s commitment to quality and excellence. Did you know that today, Chocolat Frey is the #1 chocolat brand in Switzerland?!


Chocolat Frey uses only authentic, GMO-free ingredients (heck yes!!), including rich cocoa beans, whole roasted nuts, and milk – creating some of the most delicious chocolate I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. One of my favorite things about Chocolat Frey is that they have a bean-to-bar method that leaves nothing to chance. This process, perfected to the T, consistently provides true quality, and that incredible indulgence that we all crave when looking for a delicious, premium chocolate.


Aside from being utterly delectable, Chocolat Frey is UTZ certified. I love that they take a careful approach to the environment, while supporting sustainable cocoa farming.  It makes their chocolate that much better!!


Want to know  where you can purchase Chocolat Frey? I’ve got you, boo! Chocolate Frey Napsli can be found at Sam’s Club across the country. 80 delicious individually wrapped authentically Swiss milk and dark chocolate pieces for only $9.99. I’ve included a list of retailers below where you can find Chocolat Frey.

Shopbop Holiday Gift Guide

The holiday season is here!! It’s that time of year that most everyone looks forward to each year. Festive decorations, tasty treats, delicious warm beverages to soothe your soul, savory creations, and of course – shopping! This is the best time of year to get in on some of the best savings all year round. I’m really excited about Cyber Monday, as one of my all time favorite retailers has an incredible sale going on. Shopbop is an online retailer that sells designer products from all ranges – high end to very affordable. Their products and selection is always on point, and always offers up the newest, latest, and greatest. If you aren’t familiar with them, I highly suggest you check them out!

Shopbop Tiered cyber monday sale Shopbop Holiday Gift Guide on Kirstin Marie

Shopbop is offered a tiered discount sale – meaning the more you spend, the higher your discount off your purchase is! Right now through tomorrow night you can save 15% off a $200+ purchase, 20% off a $500+ purchase, and 25% off an $800+ purchase – that is all full-priced AND sale items!! Those may seem like steep numbers, but the savings are greater the higher the purchase. For example, lets say you’ve been stalking this gorgeous Maison Margiela Leather Handbag. Now at MSRP for $2695, that’s a steep price for a handbag. “But it’s Margella. I need it.” You say. Well, it’s now marked down to $1617.00. Toss that baby in your cart and use code GOBIG16 and get 25% off (that’s $404!!). That means you are only paying $1200 for an almost $2700 bag. That is incredible savings!!!   For the full sale details, click here.

10 Gifts for Him Under $50

10 Gifts for Him Under $50

Men can be incredibly difficult to shop for. Growing up I was that one girl that was friends with all the guys, and went home to my dad and brother, with my mom being pretty much the only other girl in my life (that was near by). Now that I am married, I am still faced with the same challenge – what do I get for my mister, my dad, father in law, brother, and all those amazing men in my life? Ask a man what he wants and he will either tell you “nothing” or “I don’t know”. Things can be especially difficult when it comes time to get a gift for him – you know that man that has everything and buys everything he wants himself. I’d love to be able to gift a big money item, but with the financial world the way it is today, it’s not a good time for me or my wallet. I’ve spent quit a bit of time compiling a list of gifts for him that can fit into every budget, and can work for pretty much any man. Men tend to overlook the things I’ve included in my gift guide, and that’s what gifts are for! Check out my list of gifts for him below, and pick up something for him!

10 Gifts for Her Under $50

10 Gifts for Her Under $50

With the holidays just around the corner, shopping can be difficult, especially when the people in your life are as diverse as you are. Not to mention that not all of us are rolling in dough (at least not as much as we wish we were), which can really take a toll on you when shopping for the perfect gift. To make your life easier, I’ve created a unique list of 10 gifts for her under $50. It’s really important to keep within my budget when it comes to holiday shopping, but it’s also equally as important to get gifts that are great quality, unique, and something that I know the person will love, but wouldn’t necessarily have purchased for themselves. In my gifts for her segment, I’ve included gifts like delectably scented candles from L’Occitane, unique phone cases, luxurious perfumes and lotions, and so much more. There is something for every lovely lady on your list, whether she’s a quirky gal, beauty lover, jewelry fanatic, or just wants an evening in to pamper herself. Check out my ideas for gifts for her below. I’ve added a few personal notes next to my favorites. I hope you find something you love!
