Welcome to the Christmas Season!!! This is my second gift guide I have to share with you (yesterday was the comprehensive guide to Tween gifting!)
This is a gift guide for “her.” Her being your mom, wife, girlfriend, aunt, sister, best friend, really special woman in your life. Or just forward this to someone with a “hint, hint” and let them choose from tons of great stuff! Everything here I either want (seriously!) or have and think you should have!
There are lots of different ideas and price ranges and I hope you find great gift inspiration here.
Ok, Lets start with the cozy stuff- perfect for your homebody:
I am a bathrobe connoisseur. Like I really love them. I have a Parachute brand bathrobe at home, and to be honest, I don’t like it. The terry cloth got scratchy really quickly and I am just not a fan at all. So when I went to Canada last year for the winter, I got myself The Softest Bathrobe Ever, and it was the best thing I did for myself. I am now gunning for one in Seattle, so I don’t have to cart it back and forth every weekend, which had become downright tempting it is so comfy!
Slippers are a must when you live in a cold climate. I got these UGG Slippers as a gift years ago and they have lasted and lasted. Soft and comfy, but durable enough to take the dog out in the back yard, you know?
Slip Pillow Cases are my favorite and I have been sleeping with them for years! I’m not sure if they are working to reduce friziness in my hair and prevent wrinkles- but I definitely don’t wake up with those terrible squished face lines anymore from sleeping on my side! Plus they come in great colors!
Speaking of wrinkles…. if you have a beauty junkie to shop for, here are a bunch of tools that go beyond creams and potions and they are all for everyday use which always makes for a great gift:
Ok, I got this NUFACE facial toning tool a few years ago as a gift and I am telling you, if you spend a few minutes a day doing this it seriously works. I am currently working on keeping my jawline intact LOL and from falling to the floor, and I swear this has helped a lot! In fact, it has worked so well, I now have my eye on this variety for the body! Saggy knees and upper arms be gone?
On the low key, less dramatic side, I love this Ice Facial Roller or this Jade Roller Kit for the face. It helps banish swelling and inflammation. Great stocking stuffer, or a fun gift for a girlfriend! If you have a workout fiend in your life, this Salt Massage Ball is awesome for easing sore muscles.
Pete got me a Dyson Hairdryer a few years ago and honestly, it has been amazing. I dry my hair in a fraction of the time, so really he gave me the gift of time and stress reduction (priceless!!) I saw that they have a really pretty – Limited addition Dyson Hair Dryer with a red case to keep all the attachments together and make travel easy. I love it and it’s an awesome gift!
So, there is a little more coziness/hydration happening below:
I think these Gem and Crystal Water Bottles are so pretty and I have given them as gifts for everyone from my college-aged niece to girlfriends. Something pretty that you wouldn’t buy for yourself but that you would use every day.
I am a major coffee drinker, so of course, I love a pretty mug to drink it in! I also am obsessed with a great travel mug since I live for them up in Canada. My girls are always choosing mugs they think I will like, and here are a few of my favorites. With a pound of really great coffee beans, this is a great teacher, neighbor, sister, co-worker gift for sure!
My fantasy is to be left alone curled up with aforementioned coffee mug and a good book. Or in this case a kindle. If you have a reader in your life, you can’t go wrong with a Kindle Paperwhite.
OK, there are a few things you can never go wrong with in my book: Hats, Gloves and Scarves. here are some of my favorite’s for this season:
I have this Cashmere Gauze Scarf and wear it all the time. I have also gifted this to many girlfriends and teachers in my day
And for a hugely luxe gift, this Gucci scarf is dreamy and I LOVE IT.
These Wool gloves are super functional and cute and my cold weather staples!
I love shoes as a gift and these are a few awesome pairs that anyone would love:
I am a sucker for a great candle. I like them all over the house, and these are some of my favorites:
Frasier Fir Candle are ALL over our house this time of year!
And if you are looking for something really special in the candle department, this is absolutely beautiful. I received it as a gift from a dear friend a few years ago and it still brings me delight and compliments so I know it’s a winner!
DIPTYQUE BAIES & ROSES CAROUSEL CANDLE SET
This is Oversized topcoat in plaid Italian stadium-cloth wool is my favorite overcoat that I have purchased in a loooong time and have been wearing it a ton. I love that it easily fits over blazers, sweaters and light-weight coats so its awesome for layering. But I have to say that I am majorly lusting over this Double Breasted Top Coat in Cashmere in Radiant Orange and this Faux Fur Spicy Jade Coat, Anyone would love these coats!
If you are looking for SUPER-LUXE gift options, here are some great ones:
What a lovely 18kt Gold Locket This is a piece that the special woman in your life could wear every day with pictures of her kids or loved ones inside.
I loooove this Large Monochrome Saffiano Tote in Fuoco Red. it’s a gorgeous color, perfect for all year round and large enough to handle all the junk I like to haul around!
I wear these YSL Sunglasses all the time. they are sturdy and stylish and look good on everyone!
