Not sure about you, but once November hits, in my mind, it’s officially the Holiday season! That means it’s time to start shopping early and check some gifting off your list! Ya’ll have asked for some holiday gift guides, and I’ve planned several here over the next month to help you with gift ideas for all the loved ones in your life. I’ll be creating a tab at the top of my main blog page titled ‘HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDES’ for easy access to all these posts.
Let’s start with the ladies in your life – Moms, aunts, sisters, in-laws, besties – not to worry, I’ve got something for all the women on your list. Hop on the sleigh and let’s get started!
Cozy slippers – This one is something I grab each and every year (for me actually!) If my husband hasn’t already picked them up, I make sure they are under the tree come Christmas morning. There’s nothing more cozy than slipping into a brand new pair of plush slippers. Other cozy options are here and here.
Monogrammed mug – One can never have too many mugs, and during the Holiday season a hostess must accommodate all the family house guests. She’ll be equipped to hold the coffee & cream, or cocoa & marshmallows. Gift her one of her own to rightfully claim!
Plush robe – I haven’t always been a robe ‘wearer’, but in my adult years have come to appreciate the bathroom cover! I love a plush robe atop my pajamas. Something cozy to wear while watching the kiddos open their presents adds to the joys of Christmas morning.
House socks – My mom always, ALWAYS, includes a pair of socks in our stockings. Now hers may involve some festive ‘Christmas’ theme, but likewise, they are the same. If slippers are too pricey, a cozy pair of socks are a great alternative.
Eye Shadow Palette – I recently picked this Beauty Counter LE eye palette up, and my immediate thought when opening it was it would make a great gift! The limited-edition palette comes in an exclusive, gold-patterned compact with a removable mirror and double-ended brush. It holds 18 long-wearing shades designed to flatter all skin tones — the perfect gift for the beauty obsessed! Other options for a great everyday palette are here, here, and here.
Lavish Body Butter – If you haven’t tried this body butter, it’s a must. It is SO moisturizing and has been chosen by Allure as a “best of beauty” product for 2017! Offered in two scents – their citrus, and limited edition lavender (smells heavenly). Perfect gift option for anyone who enjoys a bit of pampering (what lady doesn’t?!)
Planner – This one is always on my wishlist. Y’all know my type A, organized mind works, and having a planner to sort it all out is a must. With the new year approaching, a planner is a great gift for any boss babe on your list! Others I’ve heard rave reviews on are here, and here.
Blanket scarf – Blanket scarves are the accessory of the season, so why not gift a pretty new scarf for her seasonal wardrobe? Add in a pretty set of earrings or fixed meaning bracelet, and you’ve got her accessories covered! Other fashionable options are here and here.
Faux Fur Throw – Who doesn’t love a cozy blanket to cover up with while you watch Christmas movies? This one is super soft (and affordable) and provides the perfect amount of warmth while you sip that hot cocoa and recite (for the zillionth time) ‘A Christmas Story’ one liners.
Engravable necklace – I’ve mentioned this as an everyday essential. Wearing this personalized piece allows me to hold those dear to my heart, in a unique way. Give the gift of personalization on a whole new level. Engrave coordinates of her wedding venue, children’s initials, monogram, special dates, or even a mantra or daily affirmation. Other engravable necklace options are here, here, and here.
Trinket dish – Ya’ll know how much I love to accessorize my looks. Chances are the ladies in your life do, too! Why not give a cute little place to store all her sentiments? Add a fashionable everyday ring, or engraved cuff to complete the ensemble. A few others I’d love to own myself can be found here, and here.
Make up Brush Set – I recently discovered Sigma Beauty‘s make up brushes, and I am highly impressed. These cruelty free brushes are well made (bristles do not fall out, or apart!) and come with a 2 year warranty. Provide an easy application, and smooth finish. For all the beauty babes in your life, this is a great option. Plus, I often find it’s hard to bite the bullet and purchase make up brushes on my own. I am victim of sticking with the same brushes for years, so opting to gift a make up brush set is one I know would be well received!
Crossbody bag – This is for those fashionistas in your life. She’s the put-together one; always chic and stylish. A crossbody designer bag is one she’ll forever be envisioning new ensembles with. This real leather bag is a bit pricey, but worth the investment and will last her forever. Other crossbody options to consider are here and here.
Hopefully these ideas will help check the ladies off your list this season! Stay tuned for a few more guides coming your way this next month! Happy gift giving!
