Second gift guide of the season is here, this time for the ladies! I had so much fun putting this together, and preeettty much everything ended up on my list. Oops 🙂
These are my definite must haves. I got this weekender for Christmas two years ago and I’ve used it so much. It’s really roomy and I love the shoe compartment on the bottom. Next is the Mini Mac, which is the perfect crossbody bag. This is the most expensive thing ($195) but worth it. I have it maroon color and it’s still in perfect condition after 4 years. They come in a ton of colors, I love this pretty grey color. It’s big enough to fit the essentials, but small enough to still throw in my diaper bag if I’m carrying both. Finally, the backpack. It’s the diaper bag I use, and LOVE. First because it’s so cute and doesn’t look like a diaper bag. I love the leather and gold on it. It’s from the brand Skip Hop, and also comes in a more traditional diaper bag style.
Pom Pom Throw Blanket
I’ve been seeing these everywhere and I’m obsessed. I just think they are so cute. This one pictured I found at Nordstrom, it comes in a ton of colors, but is a little pricey. I found this one from American Eagle Arie for half the price, but only comes in cream. Still super cute and I’m putting this one on my list!
Candles & Home Fragrance
What woman doesn’t like candles? I love Bath and Body works candles, don’t get me wrong, but I think Christmas is a good time to get someone a little more luxurious candle or diffuser set. I hear so many good things about the nest fragrances. They can be a little pricey, so I think the gift set is a nice way to really try out the brand before splurging. Also, this candle from Anthropologie (my favorite place ever) is only 18 bucks! Plus it comes in 7 scents. Finally, the Voluspa candle set. Two of my best friends got me a large one of these at the spa for my bachelorette party and I fell in love with this brand. Another one that’s a little more expensive, these would be perfect to give to someone you know loves candles, or break them up and use them for stocking stuffers!
I’m not a huge jewelry-wearer, but these gorgeous Kendra Scott studs have been on my wishlist forever. They come in a bunch of metal/stone combinations and I love them. Plus way cheaper than diamonds 😉 The drop earrings are from the Baublebar line at Target, and the set of 2 is only $20. I could never wear them because one of my kids, or me would end up ripping them right out. BUT I still think they’re really cute. Lastly the mantra band cuff, these come in a couple different sayings, and you can pick silver, rose gold, or gold.
My favorite section! I love shopping for kitchen items, these aren’t specifically for women, but I thought they were more likely to appreciate this stuff. THIS CUTTING BOARD. Marble is really popular and I wasn’t that into it until I saw this. It’s customizable so you can put any letter on you want. If you don’t care about the personalization, I see these kinds of things at Marshalls all the time too! (It would also make a really nice wedding/shower gift). As you can probably tell by now I’m really into gold. So the serving set speaks for itself. Plus it’s only $12 at Target. Lastly, I found these really pretty wine glasses from World Market and they are less than $10 a glass for the set. I don’t even drink wine and I want these. They come in copper too!
Okay, maybe this is my favorite section.. I think cookbooks and coffee table books make really fun gifts. Especially paired with a baking dish, cookie cutters, or any little cooking gadgets. Even if they don’t get used, they’re cute to have on display. The first one is on my list this year, it’s kind of an all around lifestyle book. The second one I got last year, and it would make such a nice gift for someone that loves to entertain. Just browse the book section at Anthropologie and you’re bound to find one you love.
Palette’s are a great gift because you get a lot for your money. And since there’s about a thousand makeup palettes to choose from, you really can’t go wrong with any. I really like the ones above. They are from the $29-$58 price range and they all have really good reviews. I love the benefit one because it’s blush and bronzer instead of eyeshadow.
One of my favorite things to get as a gift! I feel more put together with a matching pajama set.. is that sad? Either way, my favorite are the sets from Victoria’s Secret, but watch out for sales because this time of year they have TONS of pj sales. (pj seperates are currently 40% off!!) The pj set in the middle are from Target, only 20 bucks! Clearly I’m into pom poms lately, I love these slippers. They come in a couple different colors and are usually free with any pajama purchase!
Here’s a pinnable image!
Until next time,
