Holiday Gift Guide for Her


For the first time ever, I’m pulling together a list of holiday gift items that are either on my list or I already own.

01. Madewell Trouser Socks – $12.50 – There is nothing better than having a cozy pair of socks to pull on. Madewell has been my go-to for stylish, warm, and soft socks. Perfect for boots too!

02. Stanley 40 oz. Quencher H2.0 FlowState Tumbler – $40.00 – I know, that seems expensive for a water bottle.. but trust me!! I’ve gone through so many water bottles and none of them help keep my hydrated like this one.

03. Kitsch Microfiber Hair Towel – $17.25 – I don’t know how I lived for so many years without this. If she’s wrapping her hair in a normal size towel – she needs this!! It absorbs so much water and cuts dry time in half.

04. Apple Watch – $399 – I love being able to go for runs without my phone on me, answer texts, phone calls, and receive important notifications. There is also a fun walkie-talkie feature if your s/o also has one! (I got starlight!)

05. UGG Throw Blanket – $128 – Michael bought me one of these two years ago and it remains one of my favorite all time gifts! Its perfect to snuggle when you’ve got the Sunday Scaries!

06. Flutter Habit False Eyelash Start Kit – $34.99 – I haven’t tried these yet, but I have been recommended them several times! This starter kit is a great way to test them out before purchasing an entire pack of a single style.

07. BURGA Phone Case – $49.95 – I bought this in the Wild Terrain style as a nod to my background in landscape architecture! They have so many beautiful case designs and the quality is wonderful. I drop my phone several times a week and it hasn’t made a scratch.

08. Reed Diffuser – $49 – This was given to me a couple years ago and I loved it! Perfect gift for someone since it smells great and looks pretty on display.

09. Hunter Toiletry Bag – $45 – I’ve been known to gift makeup and toiletry bags to others here and there. This bag is structured, has an extra pouch inside, and pockets for smaller items. The best part is that this company stands for eco-friendly materials and is founded by women!

10. Memory Foam Fluffy Slipper – $24.50 – Oh, she already has slippers? Buy her more!! Slippers can get worn out and need to be replaced or its good to have back up pairs in different rooms of the house. Buy her the slippers!

11. Makeup Removing Towels – $18 – These are super soft and work amazingly well. I have two and that definitely isn’t enough!

12. Metal Head Massager – $13.90 – Perfect stocking stuffer for anyone on your list! I wish I had one of these.

13. North Face Jester Lumbar Pack – $25 – Great for quick errands or traveling. It can be worn around the waist or as a crossbody. I wear one every single time I board a flight!

14. Touch Ultra LED Makeup Mirror – $39 – Perfect for doing makeup or skin care! This isn’t exactly what I have, but its close and I love the minimalistic look.

15. Rival Fleece Jogger Pants – $31.50 – If it has an elastic waist and pockets, its a great gift.

16. Initial Disc Necklace – $52 – Put her first initial on there and its a great custom gift she will cherish! You could also add kids initials.

17. Luxe Core Sheet Set – $135 – You can’t go wrong with new sheets. I’ve heard great thinks about Brooklinen!

18. Ho Ho Ho Howdy Sweatshirt – $40 – This is such a fun seasonal item to have and break out for the holiday parties.

If these don’t work, you could always get her a gift card or subscription service. Here are a few that I would appreciate!

  1. Home Depot Gift Card – For the home decorator, DIYer or remodeler.
  2. Ulta Gift Card – For all beauty, skin care, hair care needs!
  3. Masterclass Subscription – For the perpetual learner.
  4. Nuuly Gift Subscription – Trendy rental clothes.
  5. Ipsy Gift Subscription – Makeup trials
