Gift Guide For Her

December 13, 2018

Hey, hey! My recent post about the gift guide for the bride-to-be was one of my most viewed entries, EVER! So, I decided to share another gift guide, but this time, for all women! I’ve listed 15 items that are either on my wish list this year, or items that I already own that you’ve GOT to put on your wish list! Here we go, click on the titles for the links!


iRobot Roomba 

To say that this has been on my list for 3+ years is NOT an exaggeration. These babies just keep getting cooler and cooler, with all kinds of neat features and WiFi capabilities. I don’t have one (yet) but ALL of my friends who do, absolutely love them! I mean, who wouldn’t want a robot to clean your house??


Apple Watch Leather Band


I LOVE my apple watch, but don’t really love the standard silicone band it came with. Thankfully, switching out bands is super easy, and I love that there are so many different options, styles and colors! Personally, I’m a sucker for a traditional leather band, shown above!


L.L. Bean Wicked Good Moccasins

OK. I have been an UGG whore for 10+ years, and I still love them….but NOTHING compares to these!!! I bought my first pair a couple of months ago, and I AM HOOKED. I will never buy another pair of slippys again ever from anywhere else. AND! they are cheaper, more fluffy and comfortable than the Ugg moccasins!


Tarte Lip Set

I’m not huge on lipstick, and TARTE lipstick is the ONLY kind I wear, because it’s SUPER creamy and a little less pigmented than some others. It literally feels like butter, and even though the shades above look super rich and dark, they’re actually much softer when you apply them. I love these little mini gift sets because you can get a bunch of different colors….for $20!!!!


Carhartt Wool Socks

Not the prettiest wool socks….BUT they are on this list for a reason! I bought my boyfriend a couple pairs of these, and of course, stole some for myself after I tried on a pair on his! THEY ARE AMAZING. Step aside fuzzy socks, THIS is where it’s at.


Nespresso Machine

Sadly, George Clooney does not in fact, come with the coffee, as shown in the commercials, but the Nespresso still made the list. If you’re a little extra with your coffee, this is probably the instant coffee machine for you. Similar to the Kureig, it can make regular coffee, but it can also do some fancy-shmancy drinks too.


Weighted Blanket

The fad about these things is REAL. Don’t let the price tag scare you, it’s a one-time purchase and you will THANK yourself for buying this. They are blankets/comforters that are weighted, designed to relieve stress and anxiety and calm yourself when falling asleep. Same idea as swaddling a baby. It’s like a big hug while falling asleep. SIGN ME UP. Pay attention because there are different weights of these blankets, adults should have a 15-20lbs blanket and children should have a  5-10lbs blanket.


LUSH Gift Box Set

You should have known LUSH was going to be somewhere on this list. I swear by their products, beliefs and missions. I have super sensitive skin and have a hard time finding bath/shower products that don’t cause irritation. LUSH is 100% organic, natural, all that good stuff, and I have never had an issue with any of their products! I love these gift sets because it’s a sample of a bunch of different products for under $30!


SoulMate Heel Protectors

As seen on Shark Tank (and now at just about every wedding that I shoot) These heel protectors are the real deal. They don’t look like much, but they slide onto the back of the heel and prevent sinking in grass and damage to the heel because of the increased surface area! Super genius, and IT ACTUALLY WORKS. I’ve seen it time and time again! Super cheap, so even if you’re not always wearing heels, grab a pair for your next occasion!


Viktor & Rolf FlowerBomb Perfume

One of the more pricer items on this list, but definitely a favorite. This has been my go-to perfume for a couple of years, and it’s legit the best. It’s super concentrated, so you only need 1-2 squirts, and it lasts foooooreverrr!


Tarte Pro Eyeshadow Palette

Noticing a trend? I really love good quality makeup and Tarte is one of my all-time favs! They recently came out with this Pro Palette and it is absolutely on my list this year. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of super sparkly shades, and I like the more neutral-warm tones. Plus, Tarte eyeshadow blends like buttahh! love it!


Oh yes, there’s a reason I have 5 of these. They really are that good, and come in all sorts of colors, shapes and sizes. They really do keep your drinks cold/warm for like 23843928 hours. I use a Corkcicle on the daily and LOVE them!


Blanket Scarf

A true staple piece in any girl’s wardrobe, and you really can never have too many! So many different colors and patterns, I love, love, loooove blanket scarfs!!


Car Seat Warmer

Cold car seats are the worst. If your car doesn’t have heated seats, fear not! Amazon once again, delivers. There are a bunch of different options out there, but I like these seat warmers in particular because they appear to be super slim and adjust to the car, without being bulky or obnoxious. The price of $60 also isn’t that bad!


Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Polaroid Camera

Haha, alright I have a little bit of a confession to share…I bought this Polaroid camera for my daughter for Christmas, and now I’m kinda wishing that I got one for myself too. I’ll be honest, it can get a little pricey, since you have to buy film separately, but I think they are SO cool! And they come in all sorts of different colors and the simple and easy design just makes my heart sing! This one is definitely on mine (and my daughter’s) wish list!


Phew! I hope you were on the nice list this year, because some of these gifts are TOO good to pass up!! Happy shopping!
