Hi everyone! I hope you all are having a nice December so far. Today I’ve got a gift guide for you! Woohoo! This post will be a gift guide for the women in your life. All of the things I have recommended are things that I would like to open up on Christmas. So, if you’re stuck on what to get your mom, sister, aunt, girlfriend, etc., look no further, I’ve got you! If you’d like to see what I’ve included in my gift guide this year, keep reading!
So, I’ve separated the gifts based on price ranges to make it a little easier to find your budget range, and browse from there!
$25 and under
Lush Products– You seriously cannot go wrong in Lush, there is something for everyone in there. Plus, around the holidays they sell wrapped packages with products inside. Or, you can get individual bits!
Bath and Body Works– As you will know if you read my blog often, I am a major Bath and Body Works fan. As the same as Lush, there is something for everyone here. Plus, they have some amazing deals going on right now. You can never go wrong with a nice candle.
Books– Now, this may be a bit iffy for some people but hear me out. You could get her an actual book to read if she enjoys reading. OR, you can get her nice books that are just decoration to sit on her coffee table. A few good ones I know of are Ice Cream for Breakfast, or The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k. Both are super cute and look nice as decoration.
ColourPop– Ok, you all know I rave about this brand ALL the time. But this would be a perfect gift for the holidays. Their liquid lipsticks are $6. You seriously cannot beat that.
$50 and under
Perfume– If you know what sort of scent she likes, or what scent you think she might like, this is a more person gift if you are close with her. A few perfumes I really enjoy are Dolce and Gabbana “Light Blue”, Victoria’s Secret “Bombshell”, or Viktor&Rolf “Flowerbomb”.
Jewelry– I love getting jewelry! I know it depends on the girl on what type of jewelry she would like. BUT, if I can add in my 2 cents about style, you can never go wrong with stud earrings. They look nice with every outfit, and plus, a girl wants to pick out her own statement earrings. Nice simple stud earrings are always a safe option.
Shoes– This one is so easy because you can go in SO many different directions with it. You could go simple and get her a pair of Vans or Converse, which is very useful and she’ll love. OR, you could go a bit more fancy and get her some heels, booties, boots. Obviously, if she isn’t comfortable walking in heels, or she doesn’t prefer to dress up, steer clear of my second suggestion. But, I know that Nordstrom and Macy’s sells great shoes that she’ll love.
Clothes– This can be seriously hit or miss. I would only recommend getting clothes if you REALLY know her and her style. Some girls prefer to pick their own clothes out. So, if I can give any advice when buying someone else clothes, try to guess their size, but if you are unsure, go a size lower than you think. Tip- fur coats, black jeans, body suits are all in style this winter!
$150 and under
Wallets/Card Cases– Who doesn’t need a new, or just another wallet? There are so many cute ones you can find at Alice & Olivia, Michael Kors, Kate Spade and so forth.
Make Up– Oh my goodness. I really promise you that if you got her make up, or even simply a Sephora gift card, she will be SO happy. Some recommendations I can give are Too Faced “Better Than Sex” mascara, Anastasia Beverly Hills make up, Naked eyeshadow palettes. Make up is deceivingly expensive, so tread lightly!
Sunglasses– Sunglasses can completely vary in price range. But, good quality sunglasses that will not break easily and will also last for years are going to be a bit more expensive. Some great brands you can find some at are Ray-Ban, Tory Burch, and so on.
Record Player– This is not something you would think to get one of the women in your life. But, how excited would she be to unwrap this and have it nicely sat in her home? Plus, if you go to a record store you can get records for really cheap to go along with her new record player!
$200 and over
Handbags– This can be a gift for the woman in your life who you know a little better. This can be such a special gift and I promise she will love it. You can get them from any place but some of my favorites are Kate Spade, Michael Kors, Tory Burch and so on.
Leather Jacket- Coming from my point of view, how can anyone live without a leather jacket? Seriously, its such a staple to have in your wardrobe. And trust me, I think using real fur is horrible. BUT, real leather is something I will not budge on. Fake leather looks cheap and tacky, so please avoid it at all costs. Real leather jackets can be quite pricey, but they seriously last a lifetime.
Apple Products– If you have the money to spend, you seriously cannot go wrong with Apple products. You could go from an iPad to an iPhone to just simply headphones. There is something so pleasing and a luxurious feeling when you receive an Apple box with goodies inside.
Furniture or House Decorations- Maybe this is coming from a personal place, but everyone who reads this blog is nearing the graduation of high school, is in college, or is a real life adult. So, getting something new for my apartment would make me so happy. BUT, only get something for her if you REALLY know her and her taste for decorating. Because your taste and hers can be very different, and you don’t want there to be any awkward moments.
So there it is! My very first gift guide! Would you guys want to see another one, for him maybe? Or, did you see anything you’d potentially buy for the women in your life, or that you are going to put on your wishlist? Please let me know down in the comments!
