Holiday Gift Guide: Ladies Edition

Like the song says, it’s the most wonderful time of year! What’s better than walking around bundled up in a big blanket scarf, Starbucks holiday drink in hand with Christmas music filling the air and sparkly lights everywhere? How can you not be happy? 

But on the other hand, it can be the most stressful time of the year because you want to enjoy everything about the Christmas season but you’re too busy trying to figure out what to get your friends and family! 

That’s where I come in - I’m here to help so you can enjoy the magical season that is Christmas. You might be saying, it’s November! Well - December is only a few days away and time is quickly passing by and before you know it, you’ll be my Dad and running around on Christmas Eve. So I thought I’d help push you to making this season, as stress-free as possible!

This one is for the ladies.

Any Gift Set From Sephora

I can promise you any make up lover will appreciate a good gift set. Make up gets expensive…especially when you're an addict like myself. Gift sets allow you to try different products without having to spend hundreds of dollars! AND the best thing about Sephora gift sets is they come with a coupon that you can bring back and redeem for a full size of your favorite product from the set. 

Subscription Boxes

The gift that keeps on giving. There seems to be a subscription for everything now a days! Literally everything…here’s a few different ones to look into:

For the Make up Lover…

Birchbox 

BoxyCharm

Facetory

For the Wino…

Winc

Vine Oh!

Bright Cellars

For the Foodie…

Graze 

Nature Box 

Candy Club

For the Fitness Guru...

Fab Fit Fun

BarBella

Fabletics

Charitee T-Shirts

During the holiday season, people seem more inclined to give back to those who aren’t as fortunate. Whether that’s donating to food banks or volunteering their time - it seems to be the season of giving. What if I told you you could give back and be stylish all at the same time?! Their t-shirts are a perfect gift for anyone who wants to stay up with the latest trends! I personally suggest the “HUMBLE” tee - perfect for anyone trying to find something with a jean or leather jacket.

Wanderlust Kit

This will be perfect for the girl in your life who is constantly thinking about her next adventure. What you’ll need is - a cute notebook (there are a lot of cute stationary websites, I suggest checking out eccolo.com) and good-sized map (not too big but big enough that she can hang it up somewhere) push pins, and a mason jar. What’s the purpose of all these things? A notebook to plan and write about her adventures - the map and push pins to show where she’s been and where she wants to go and the mason jar to save change to put towards her next trip.

Bar Cart Kit

Let’s be honest, if you don’t have a bar cart - your adulting wrong. Every good apartment should always have a fully stocked bar cart with all the necessary accessories. Put together a little “bar cart” set - with a pack of cute shot glasses, a shaker, a bottle of their favorite alcohol to drink and then an aesthetically pleasing bottle for show (pro tip - Absolute Vodka has really pretty bottles that would look great on display). Perfect for parties….and their Instagram.

Happy Shopping!
