The whirlwind of Thanksgiving is now behind us and if you are like me, you may be sitting blankly in front of a sheet of paper trying to finish some last minute gift-giving lists.
I am always a fan of making it personal. The heartfelt appreciation that comes with someone receiving a gift they really want and need is beyond gratifying. I have not always been good at this. I have a horrible memory and gift giving is not a natural talent of mine. I now try to pay attention all year, and when someone says they desire something, I make a little note for later. It has afforded me the opportunity to give some meaningful gifts in recent years. Women are the best at expressing their wants and needs because… well, we’re women. We are expressive and we communicate. What have you heard those special women in your life say? Your mom, sister, best friend? What do they need? If you’re still stumped, I have put together a list of fun gift ideas below. It’s a small list, but maybe it will even give you an idea for something else. Stay personal. Be creative. Have fun. Happy Shopping!!
1// Missoni “Apothia” Candle collection – $88 This fashionista will recognize these Missoni graphic knitwear prints instantly. Although Missoni is known for their colorful sportswear, they have a large Home collection as well. These beautiful long-lasting soy candles come in a variety of intense fragrances.
2// Kate Spade Crossbody Bag – $148 Ahhhh the crossbody bag. If she’s going to sport the trend, she might as well do it with style. This classy Kate Spade cross body comes in 3 colors and is a must have for the holidays!
3// AG Adriano Goldschmied “The Absolute Leggings coated Skinny Jean” – $205 She’s your sister and your best friend and you’ve been sharing clothes your whole lives. You’ve got this! This AG wax coated skinny jean is all the rave and a fabulous fit. She’ll love you forever!! And hey, you’ll probably get to borrow them anyway.
4// Gift of the Month from ClubsGalore – I love this site!! What’s even better than getting a gift during the holidays? Getting one every month of the year! I love “gift of the month” clubs and what I love about this site is that they have 35 different kinds. And the best part is, you can create a variety package of different ones, starting at 3 months up to 12 months of delivery. I am also a big fan of Birchbox… You can send a monthly treat of high end cosmetic and skin care samples to your gal pal all year round!
5// Minted Journals – $16+ Get her new year started off on the right track with a new journal. This site has a plethora of journal styles, sizes and colors and they can all be personalized with pictures and names.
6// Tocca Beauty “Meet the girls” gift set – $62 I am a big fan of Tocca and all of their products. This is a great way to let her try all the Tocca fragrances and decide which one is her favorite.
7// Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Collection – $65 Who doesn’t love a Kiehl’s gift set during the holidays? Let’s be honest, any luxe bath and body gift set brand is fantastic during the holidays. It’s the thing we end up using all year round and rarely buy for ourselves.
8// Pandora Charm Bracelet – $45++ Charm bracelets are not just for little girls anymore. Give the big girl in your life a reason to smile when she looks down at all the shiny little mementos dangling around her wrist. Mom will love charms that remind her of you and her grandkids.
9// Burberry Check Cashmere Scarf – $395 Nothing says wintery warmth like a Burberry cashmere scarf. The distinct Burberry patterned scarf is always a treat, but any scarf is a great holiday gift. A matching set of hat, scarf and gloves are also wonderful for your cold weather women.
10// 360 Sweater cashmere fingerless gloves – $115 Skulls, skulls and more skulls. They are making a comeback. They are everywhere from gloves, to rings and sweaters to scarves and shoes. These lush cashmere fingerless gloves by 360 are a fabulously trendy item for the edgy girl in your life. Look for other skull items as well. There are lots of fun accessories this season adorned with the scary skeletal theme.
11// The Red Tent by Anita Diamant – $12 This is an oldie but a goodie. If you are certain that she hasn’t read it before, I highly recommend it. This book is a fictional account of a commonly known Biblical story, told from a woman’s point of view, while highlighting the strong bonds between women in what was truly a mans world. If not this book, I highly recommend looking for enlightening books for women and about women to give her some inspiration this year.
