I’m kicking gift guides off for the season today! Gifting is my top love language, so naturally I’m pretty excited to create and share these guides with y’all! I’m really trying to keep the gifts in all different price ranges and sticking to items that I either personally own, have personally gifted, or would personally love to receive!
I love rounding up items that I think the special ladies in your life (include yourself!) would adore and perhaps wouldn’t normally be items that one would personally splurge on. Those are the best gifts, in my opinion! Let me get to sharing!
Matching Cosmetic Travel Bags
Cosmetic bags are one of those things you don’t necessarily think of until you’re packing. And if you or your gift recipient is anything like me, I love to have things match! I think these small, medium, and large cosmetic bags are perfectly simple and chic and would be a great gift to any woman with any style!
Makeup brushes are another one of those things that’s pricey to just go out and buy on a random Tuesday. However, they’re something most women use daily and I believe we’d all love to update our brush collections every now and again! This full makeup brush collection is a perfect gift for the makeup junkie, a makeup novice wanting to get started, a teenage girl just getting into makeup… lots of options!
A Luxe Candle
I adore candles (this y’all know), but I rarely pay a high price tag for one. Receiving any luxe candle feels like such a treat, and I absolutely love how many options Jo Malone offers! This Orange Blossom scent is one of my all-time favorite scents of theirs, and the candle version of the fragrance is about as luxe of a candle as you can get!
Pretty Lip Gloss
Lip gloss is a safe bet of a makeup gift as it doesn’t have quite as much pigment as lipstick! Perfect if you’re not sure the recipients color preference, but you still want to give her a little pretty ‘something’ in the makeup department. Beautycounter lip gloss pretty gold packaging gets me every time, the gloss isn’t sticky, they’re safe to wear every single day, and I love their simple and classic color options.
Fancy Face Masks
Face masks are such an indulgent experience that any lady would love! I’ve mentioned this set here before, but I really think it’s a great bang for your buck to snag all 3 Beautycounter Face Mask options and have a fancy brush to apply them with! Most of the Beautycounter Holiday-Specific products have or are extremely close to selling out, so if this is a good gift option for you, I would shop quick!
A Monogramed Card Case
I love a good monogram and little leather goods! Card cases are the perfect gift for the lady on the go, a teenager who just got her license, a college girl who runs from class to class with her ID card, a new mama who can’t carry a full-sized wallet, a dog mama who wants to take her keys out on walks but doesn’t want to be without her credit card… you get the picture! This pretty blush pink option gives me emoji heart eyes, but love that it comes in lots of other colors, too!
Nothing is sweeter than a handwritten note. And there’s just something to be said about having your own personalized stationary! Love all of the options from this Etsy shop, especially this stationary and a pretty notepad to be on display on a desk!
My sweet mama has gifted me a fresh pair of PJs every year on Christmas Eve since I was a little girl! It’s a tradition that started because my Sister’s birthday is on the 24th and I was a jealous younger sister seeing her open presents before Christmas Day. However, I’ve since learned to control my gift jealousy and yet it’s remained one of my most favorite Christmas traditions! I look forward to opening a new pair of PJs and there’s just something about a classic matching set!
A Monogram Statement Clutch
Again, I really don’t think you can go wrong with gifting a monogram! I’ve had my eyes on this clutch for a while now… it’s just so lovely and fun! The perfect mix or classic style mixed with modern touches. I love it… who wouldn’t?!
Dainty Gold Bangles
I love my statement jewelry and I love my dainty gold pieces. This knot bangle and this beaded option are both so lovely – paired together or separately! I think simple jewelry pieces like these both are great gift options for so many varied styles. Plus… what lady doesn’t like a little Kate Spade on their arms?!
Coffee Table Books
Coffee table books fall right in line with the theme of this gift guide… they’re the perfect way to treat someone with something they wouldn’t just go and buy on a random day! I also love how you can pick a book based on interest. I’ve gifted this ‘Beautiful’ book to my mama and I still want one for myself! I also love this ‘eat beautiful’ book as an option for the lady who’s a health nut that loves to cook!
A Fun (and handy!) Keychain
A keychain is something you use every single day without much thought… but who wouldn’t love one that’s fun and fancy! I love this option that comes in so many colors and this one that’s perfect for your techie girlfriend!
The Perfect Tote
I gifted a LandsEnd Tote to each of my bridesmaids, so naturally…. I love this gift. All of those women have extremely different personal styles, yet it has brought me so much joy to see each of them continue to use them over the past few years. That’s the kinda gift-giving that makes a friend feel warm and fuzzy inside! I really think these totes are the absolute best (and better than the L.L.Bean ones, in my opinion) because they have so many great pockets, can be washed, are monogramable, and come in fun colors – like gold!
Doesn’t it all make you want to start playing Santa? Or maybe picking up something for yourself, too?! #enabler
Either way, I hope these ideas inspire you as you begin to make your lists and check them twice! Looking forward to sharing more gift guides this season (at least one per week!) and please let me know if there are any specific categories you’d like to see!
Hope y’all are having great starts to your weeks!
