Holiday Gift Guide for Her

Happy Monday friends, it’s gift guide season! I know some people hate doing gift guides but I actually really love it. I just love gift giving and nothing brings me more joy than finding the perfect gift for someone. I decided to do things a little differently this year. Instead of spacing my guides out week by week, I’m posting all of them over the next 7 days. I’m doing this because a) I know some of you like to shop early and b) I want you to be able to see all of them before Black Friday/Cyber Monday in case things go on sale. You can find them all in one place here (along with holiday decor, entertaining and style content). I’m also adding gift ideas in several different categories to my Holiday Gift Shop here.

One other thing I’d like to mention since it is the season of giving. I recognize this is not always a time of joy for everyone. Many families struggle just to be able to put food on their table let alone purchase gifts. This year Craig and I have “adopted” a family for the holidays. We will be getting the items on their holiday wish list and hopefully bringing some joy to their Christmas morning. I am not suggesting you have to go out and do this, we all have different priorities and budgets, but I encourage you to find an organization in your community to help this holiday season. There’s no donation too small to help a family, a child or an animal in need. You can find your local food bank here. If you are local to RI, you can learn about Child & Family’s Holiday Giving Program here. During a time when it can feel like there’s a lot of ugliness in the world, a little love and kindness goes a long way. Thank you so much friends!

ONE: Pretty much anything anything from Missoma is a GREAT gift for holiday. I doubt there’s many, but if any gents are reading this, I promise you, you’ll win Christmas. Just don’t delay too long in placing your order, I had a few people (ahem: dudes) send me texts last year a week before Christmas saying, can I still buy that horn necklace you have? Come on man.

TWO: For the stylish lady on your list. I love the ladylike blush version of this beret but it comes in some other pretty neutrals too.

THREE: I LOVE trying new skincare, especially clean brands. Why not treat your bestie to a gorgeous set of hydrating skincare products just in time for winter.

FOUR: The always classic Madewell tote. Whether you give it as a gift or add it to your own list, you can’t go wrong. I’ve had my for years and it’s still a favorite. I love it in the black. Plan ahead and get it monogrammed if you order from Madewell.

FIVE: One of my favorite sheet masks (to get and to give). Perfect for travel,the brightening mask gives an instant boost after a long flight. They’re also 100% biodegradable and made of natural fibers.

SIXA splurge-worthy gift that the very lucky recipient will have forever. If you’ve been wanting to treat yourself, let the holidays be your excuse. My White & Warren travel wraps go everywhere with me and I wear them year round.

SEVEN: This book was given as a gift to me and I absolutely love it. Filled with recipes and self-care rituals it not only looks beautiful on my coffee table but I love flipping through the pages any change I get.

EIGHT: Super warm and stylish boots for winter. I have the brown but I am loving the black too.

NINE: Wireless headphones that look as good as they sound.

TENI’m so glad the velvet bow is back. Such an easy way to elevate a simple pony or bun and perfectly festive for the holidays. This would make a great stocking stuffer too.

ELEVEN: For the Martha Stewart on your list. Upgrade her cookware with this pretty baking dish. Make it a set with an apron and oven mitt.

TWELVE: My standard go-to gift for just about everyone and anyone. I fell in love with Candlefish on a visit to Charleston and have been a huge fan ever since. With safe wax blends, lovely scents and pretty packaging they make a gorgeous gift.

THIRTEEN: Luxurious cashmere at an affordable price. Everlane is a favorite for my own wardrobe but also for gifts because of their quality, sustainable practices and reasonable price points.

FOURTEENI can never have too many of these, not just for when I’m out and about, but I fill them up during the day so I’ll drink more water when I’m at home.

FIFTEEN: These limited edition zodiac lip treatments are the perfect stocking stuffer for the astro lover on your list.

    I love that you’re adopting a family!

    Every year my family sponsors 2 children through The Network for Domestic Abuse in our town. They provide safe houses and other items needed to women and children fleeing terrible situations. We apply just before Thanksgiving and receive their Christmas lists and clothing sizes, along with if they NEED something in particular. Then after Thanksgiving dinner each family member contributes whatever monetary amount they want/can afford and we scour the flyers. A lot of us also share what we do at work and our companies will contribute as well! Then on Black Friday we shop!! Each year we have always managed to get every item on the lists and more, as well as a gift for the Mom and wrapping supplies.

    This is a way that every family member can still manage to give back but in a more manageable way if money is tighter. Plus, we have so much fun trying to get the best deals and it brings such a great feeling that carries through the holiday season.

    My bf and I were planning on “adopting a family” this year, but I didn’t know where to look. Now I do.

    Once on Instagram, you mentioned a book on essentials oil. Forgot to screenshot it… this isn’t the same book is it? This one has food recipes.
