Holidays are by far my favorite time of the year. I love decorating, avoiding the diet, spending time with friends and family so much that I am always SO BAD with gift giving. I wait till the last minute and find myself scrambling amongst the crowds to figure out what to give my friends, significant other, and parents. This year I figured I would put on my big girl pants and start early; maybe even take advantage of some of the Black Friday Deals! And after my recent poll on Instagram, I learned that a lot of you are in the same boat as I am.
This blog is dedicated to all the women in your life. I hope you enjoy it, and if you do, please SHARE and leave a nice comment!
Health & Beauty
I love gifting beauty sets because they always come in great packaging (so much yes when you don’t have to wrap it!) and are an excuse for any woman in your life to try new products without having to aimlessly wander through the beauty aisles at Sephora. This specific one comes with full size brow primer and facial cream, and fun-size eye cream and facial serum.
A nude lip looks great on anyone, trust me on this one. This set from Sephora includes a full size Liquid Lip from Ciaté and deluxe minis from Bite Beauty, Buxom, Kat Von D, MAKE UP FOREVER, and Tarte
This is for the makeup enthusiast in your life. I love Tarte because their ingredients are all natural and the pigments are so buttery! This set comes with a 20-pan eyeshadow palette, 6-pan contour and highlight palette, PLUS mascara, false lashes, eyeliner, and lip gloss in Birthday Suit. This all in one gift will cover all the stops for the beauty enthusiast in your life.
PETER THOMAS ROTH is one of my favorite skin care lines out there right now. I currently use their Max Complexion Correction Pads and Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream. They are a huge hit in the beauty industry right now because their skin care packs a punch against skin woes but still gentle enough to use on a daily basis. For the price, I personally would gift these little minis to anyone and everyone!
Don’t be alarmed by the seeming scary device, it actually works wonders for your skin! It’s a gentle micro-exfoliating tool that helps your skin rejuvenate and produce collagen to make your skin smoother, plumper, and firmer. While it’s very gentle, this is a great gift for Mom or an older sister.
Can you tell that I’m obsessed with exfoliation and skin rejuvenation? This towering tube of fragrant sugar scrubs from Lalicious is a great way to relax in the bath or shower and scrub the day away. The sugar exfoliates away dead skin while the coconut and almond oils deeply moisturize and leave the skin looking youthful and soft. A great gift for any age, because us women love to unwind in our own miniature spa day!
I love this set from Sephora that includes fresh scents from Atelier, Chloé, Elizabeth and James, GUCCI, Marc Jacobs, Prada, and Tory Burch. Fragrance sets are wonderful gifts because I find it extremely hard to finish a whole bottle of perfume. I like to mix my scent up and end up with 10 1/2 empty bottles that won’t get used. The scents in this collection are mild so anyone who wears perfume would love them!
My goodness, if this isn’t a gift for my mother, I don’t know what is! Her phone is always dead because she thinks a phone charger can only stay at home. Regardless if she uses this as a charger, it’s an adorable keychain too!
What an amazing gift for teens, moms, and grandmas! We’re always taking so many photos on our phones but it’s a mission to actually go to the store and print the photos so we’re left with amazing photos but no memories on our walls! I found this little convenient device on Amazon and you guessed it; it’s on Prime! Make sure to add an extra ink cartridge and paper!
Essential oils are super popular right now because of their amazing benefits. Some claim that they have major healing benefits and I definitely believe they do wonders for relaxation and filling your home with amazing scents (without having an open flame present). I would definitely recommend this for any mom with little ones or anyone into essential oils. I know I want to have one in every room of my house! I like to add lavender and eucalyptus oils before I go to bed. It’s instantly relaxing.
Eparé Pocket Wine Aerator $19.95
Need I say more? Get one for a mom you know, now.
Coffee lovers will adore you. Everyone deserves a nice little pick me up! Don’t forget to grab some extra espresso pods!
There’s nothing more special than something that’s personalized to the person you’re giving the gift too…and luckily for Facebook, you can easily creep their page and see when their birthday is to figure out their birthstone!
MANTRABAND Cuffs $35.00
Great by themselves or stackable. A great daily reminder to the go-getter in your life.
NADRI Edwardian Ear Crawlers $45.00
I love how dainty but show-stopping these are! They come in gold, rose gold, and silver.
I could see a teen rocking this as an everyday accessory or dressing it up for a girls night out. Even better that it’s Amazon Prime!
Champion Life Cropped Tee $30.00
I personally have this shirt and love it so much. It gives the illusion of a crop top without showing off too much skin. It’s so comfy and athleisure chic!
Again, I definitely have these and definitely live in them. These are the comfiest pants, I wear them while I’m cooking holiday dinner and when we get home from visiting the family, I hope back into these babies to relax. Every woman needs a comfy pair of sweats. These are them!
She might give you the evil eye when she thinks you’re telling her she “should” workout but she’ll love you after the holidays when she’s the hottest, most supported girl at the gym!
If you haven’t taken the hint yet, holidays = warm comfy clothes!
You can never go wrong with a brand new pair of white shoes. Whether she’s a woman on the go, a mom, or a gym bunny, she’s going to love how comfy and stylish these NMD’s are!
Grid Print Ponte Leggings $17.90
A great (stretchy) pick for any holiday party!
Mock Neck Sweater $27.90
Can we just stare at those statement sleeves?! LOVE!
Try Again Thigh High Boots $69.90
If the lovely lady you’re shopping for is a fashionista, look no further. These will stop the show and have her receiving compliments all night
Hope you enjoyed all my Holiday Picks for 2017!
