Holiday Gift Guide for Gals!


I wanted to share a gift guide for anyone that stresses and struggles with finding the perfect gift for their sister, daughter, best friend, co-worker, etc! There’s always so much pressure to find the greatest possible present, so hopefully this helps alleviate a slight amount of holiday-induced nervousness! I wanted to find gifts in different price ranges and categories so you can find the exact present that whoever you’re shopping for would love and most importantly use!     


Lululemon Vinyasa Scarf, $48.

I cannot sing enough praises for this item! This scarf is a little pricey at 50 bucks, however I think it’s totally worth it since you can wear it in so many different ways! It’s so warm and soft, the material is also slightly stretchy so it will never feel tight and suffocating, as some scarfs tend to be! It also has a row of buttons, that you can easily snap on and off to create the different looks. If you unbutton the entire row, you can easily make it an infinity scarf! Button half the snaps for a handkerchief scarf look. You can also create a blanket, cardigan, shawl, and hood! I highly suggest checking out this YouTube video on the many ways to style the Vinyasa scarf! This would be the perfect present for an outdoors lover or someone that loves working out! 

     


Initial necklace, $60.

I think this is a really great gift for someone that has a classic style and enjoys more minimalistic jewelry on a day-to-day basis. I have had this “A” necklace for years and still wear it almost every single day. It goes with every outfit and is always understated, but beautiful. I’ve seen different variations of this necklace, but the one that I own is from South Moon Under. It’s called the, “Nashelle A Initial Disc Necklace Charm” and then I also have the accompanying chain. I know Kate Spade makes a similar style as well! 

    

BaubleBar Earrings, $25. 

If you are shopping for someone that loves glitzy, statement jewelry, but you don’t want to spend a whole lot…then BaubleBar will become your new BFF! They make such sturdy, high quality pieces that are super affordable! Usually they have some sort of 15% off promotion running as well, so I always recommend shopping these items whenever you can get an extra discount! I love their statement earrings for a special occasion. 

          


Sephora Collection, “Breakups to Makeups” Makeup Bag, $26.

Not all makeup bags are created equally! This one in particular is so well made and designed, that I can fit all of my daily makeup items in it and have it lay flat in my purse! The inside has a durable lining that you can easily wipe down if a lipstick spontaneously decides to break free. Plus, the cute and catchy slogans that are on each makeup bag will make the gift receiver chuckle! It’s a win, win and not outrageously expensive for such a high quality travel item!

          


Kate Spade Phone Case, $40. 

Any phone case by any brand will do the trick, I just wanted to show off my new, cute leopard print one from Kate Spade! If you know the model of their phone, then you can totally pick out an adorable phone case for them based on their personality! Caseify and Sonix makes really unique and cute patterns that they will love! You can also pick up a portable charger or extra long charging cord if you know this person is a techie on the go! 

   

     

Notebook and Coffee Mug, $10.

I wanted to include some ideas that would work great as stocking stuffers too! I think giving a notebook is such an easy gift because who honestly couldn’t use some extra paper?! I love making lists and just writing ideas out, so I always keep an eye out for cute notebooks whenever I’m shopping at HomeGoods or Target. I think pairing this notebook with a coffee mug is a nice idea because it’s an extra little gift that maybe they’ll use while they’re drinking coffee and jotting down a to-do list in the morning, or sipping tea and journaling at night! You get where I’m going with this! This coffee mug is from Target and only $5! 

      

STOCKING STUFFERS


        

Fuzzy socks, $3-$5.

I mean they’re fuzzy socks, do you need more of an explanation?! They’re the perfect gift for anyone! Regardless of age or interest, I think we can all agree that the enjoyment of fuzzy socks can bring all women together in love and happiness. I picked up the two pairs in the photo from Nordstrom, but literally every store sells these so no worries in finding a suitable pair! 

    

Pop Figure, $12. 

These are cute, little versions of popular tv and movie characters that can be displayed on a desk or in someone’s room! I would get this for someone that’s a major fan of a particular series! I love Friends, so of course I had to get a Rachel! How cute is that Central Perk apron and coffee cup though?! You can find these in bookstores and on Amazon! 

      

OPI Infinite Shine Nail Polish, $12.

By far the best nail polishes ever! I will probably do an entire blog post reviewing these because they’re that amazing! They sell all of the classic OPI shades in this formula and also have limited edition colors as well! The one pictured is in the color, “Bubble Bath,” which is an awesome go-to nude, pink shade that I can see anyone loving! 

       

It’s Skin, “Cookie & Body Ice Cream,” $10.

For only 10 bucks, you can give someone the wonderful gift of smelling like cookie dough after they apply this creamy lotion! It not only looks like ice cream (sucker for cute packaging) but it’s also a great formula! Very lightweight and not greasy at all! The perfect little stocking stuffer for anyone! 

        

I hope this gift guide gave you some great ideas on what to get your mom, sis, daughter, BFF, anyone! Don’t let this holiday season be full of stress and worry, remember it’s not about the presents! I try to always give gifts that someone would truly use and also never buy for themselves! Comment your present recommendations below! Thank you for reading and Merry Christmas!

My Favorite Fall Fashion Accesories!

My favorite way to stay up-to-date with ever-changing, seasonal fashion trends is by adding a few key accessories to my very basic wardrobe. I wanted to share with you some of my favorite Fall accessories that I am loving this season! A couple of these exact items aren’t currently in stock, however I linked similar alternatives that are in the same price range! I find that just interchanging different accessories can give the same, plain outfit a totally different feel. For example, I feel like a big, blanket scarf is perfect for a festive daytime look, but just by swapping out the scarf for a trendy choker, you have a new, edgy vibe that works for nighttime looks as well! I think investing in a few key pieces each season can prevent you from overbuying multiple items that will eventually turn out to be trendy for a brief moment in time.


  
I feel like a floppy hat is a perfect way to play it safe, but also stay on-trend. You can’t go wrong with this neutral color either! Hats are great for hiding bad hair days or concealing unsightly roots. I personally love wearing this hat with two fishtail braided pigtails! I honestly think floppy hats are going to be around for the next couple years, I bought a black one last year and wore it all the time! I think hats in general are just huge for this Fall season, I have been eyeing a gray, suede baseball cap as I mindlessly browse the Nordstrom app and I am pretty sure I need it.

    
I absolutely love big, square scarfs! This one in particular has been my favorite because it has such a unique color combo that I am so drawn to! The square shape makes it perfect for folding into a triangle and wearing it like a blanket scarf! I highly recommend checking out Pinterest  here to see exactly what I’m talking about and how to tie it in this way! Geometric patterned scarves are everywhere this season, so I would definitely suggest investing in this trend! Not only will it keep you warm, but it will keep you very fashion forward, which is a win-win in my book.


These are my all-time, favorite boot! Not only are they leather AND water resistant, but they are truly the comfiest heeled boot that I own! I can wear these all day, walk five miles and still feel absolutely content. They are so padded and perfectly designed to not put tension on the arch of your foot. I think the suede tassel design is unique, but definitely on trend from what I’ve been seeing in handbags and shoes this season. I get compliments on these all time from everyone, regardless of age or style! They seem to be pretty universally adaptable to anyone’s wardrobe and I would highly recommend checking them out and at least trying them on in store! I am someone that values comfort above all things, so I can definitely attest to how worth it these babies are!


BaubleBar is one of my favorite online retailers to buy trendy, but well-made jewelry at a reasonable price! I have seen so many people rocking the famous ’90’s trend recently, but I never felt confident enough to take the plunge! Whenever I saw this particular choker, I thought it was so feminine and unique, that I had to try it out! I really love the quality of the necklace and find that the small tassel details and well-made closure, make it feel more luxurious than it cost! I receive so many compliments on this piece that it makes me want to start wearing chokers more often! BaubleBar has a simple, burgundy velvet choker that I have been adding and re-adding to my cart recently, so I will keep you updated on whether or not I purchase!
