Today’s post is dedicated to gift ideas for the ladies in your life! The way I shop for this guide is by basically shopping for myself (meaning that I essentially own or want every item – lol). I also take into consideration things that I would buy for loved ones with different interests than mine (such as hot beverages #coldbevvies4lyfe!).
I have multiple products from this company and love the beautiful organization that it affords me. I specifically appreciate the TSA-friendly options for all of my toiletries! I will note that when traveling outside of the US, other countries are sticklers for the quart sized Ziploc bag (I know this from experience when the TSA agent in Paris dumped out all of the products from my carry-on and insisted that I re-pack them in the quart Ziploc that he provided). Pretty embarrassing, so just keep that in mind! But if you are checking your bag or traveling domestically, these are perfect and I just love them.
Tote bags are the absolute best for travel. This is a hill that I will die on because they hold *so much* and are the perfect “personal item”. If you hate that they don’t have much organization to them, you can always purchase an organizer insert (another option here) — problem solved!
I am exclusively a duffle bag girl when it comes to travel (I love the flexible sides for making the most out of the overhead bins on the plane), but now that we have a baby, I totally see the value in having rolling luggage since we’re already carrying a bunch of other items (travel crib, car seat, stroller, etc.). The one I have linked here is the bag that would be my first choice, but if you tap the widget at the top of this post, I’ve included some similar carry-on bags that would also be contenders!
I won’t pretend that I am the first blogger to ever share this silk mask as a gift suggestion, but it really is worth the hype. I love how it fits securely, but gently as to avoid putting too much pressure on your eyes and the silk feels so luxurious. 10/10
I switched to clean body care last year when I was pregnant and even though I had been using this product for a few months prior to becoming pregnant I really fell in love with it while I was carrying Sophie. The scents make your bathroom feel like a spa! I’m partial to the Bergamot scent (always a sucker for citrus), but the Eucalyptus feels specifically spa-like and the Sandalwood is so masculine and sexy. I love them all! (If the person you are gifting is sensitive to scents, they also offer a fragrance-free option!)
Wow, has this product made a difference in my life! I wrote more about it here if you’re interested.
As I mentioned in the intro, I’m 100000% in the cold beverage camp and always will be. I very rarely reach for warm drinks, but so many of my loved ones prefer their beverages to be hot / warm! Life gets busy and coffee / tea gets forgotten and there’s really nothing worse than lukewarm beverages — that’s where the warming mug comes into play. No more room temperature beverages or warming top-offs with this genius product!
I have been a major fan of this brand since I discovered them during 2020’s quarantine and I was looking for something comfy, yet stylish. Since then, I have purchased four nap dresses for myself (including the burgundy velvet I’ve shared here) and two mini dresses for when Sophie gets a bit older. I’m pretty obsessed and guarantee that your recipient will love them too. So many styles to choose from, but my favorite is the classic Ellie!
This is most certainly an investment, but absolutely a worthwhile one. My husband gifted this to me (also in 2020) and I can’t believe the difference it makes in not just my hair, but in my husband’s hair as well! I wrote a comparison post here sharing the differences between it and my old T3 Micro hairdryer if you’re looking to upgrade, but aren’t sure which one would be best.
I have never seen a more stylish wrist / ankle weight; they’re probably the least-offensive exercise gear I’ve ever seen. They work well on their own (worn just while walking around), but they also can be used to enhance an existing workout if you find yourself not being challenged by your routine.
The pandemic really hammered home the fact that I never want to step foot in a gym ever again, and this is an excellent full-body solution. I’m not shy about sharing how much we love our Peloton, but this is a great way to work out the additional muscles that don’t get any action during cycling rides.
I don’t have one of these because the idea of it actually terrifies me (but only because I suffer from hyperhidrosis; not the actual product or the aspect of being in the sleeping bag). I have heard people rave about this type of product because it helps them relax, sweat out some toxins, and generally warm up in the colder months! There are a decent number of high end personal saunas out on the market, but they are all around $500 (which I find to be a bit steep for a hot sleeping bag, but that’s just me). I’ve found a few more affordable options, both linked here and in the widget at the top of the post.
If the person you are gifting has a sweet tooth, look no further than Sugarfina! They have something for everyone… chocolates, gummies, sours, boozies, and pre-determined gift boxes as well as customizable ones! Their delicious treats do NOT disappoint so you can always feel confident gifting their products.
I can’t think of anything more decadent than truffle-infused condiments! This brand started with hot sauces, but has made their way into oils, mayonnaise (regular and spicy), and even pasta sauces! These items all make excellent gifts and I think the bundle is a perfect way to spread the holiday cheer (read: heat!).
For anyone in your life that appreciates a deluxe homemade craft cocktail. These items elevate your usual rimming salt. I’m normally more of a strict margarita girl, but I do occasionally enjoy a bloody mary with a spicy rim. If your gift recipient only likes margaritas, they sell just marg salt too. I’ve heard excellent things about this brand (that also makes hot sauces and heat-infused honeys!) and now I can’t wait to make some tasty home margaritas!
I share these glasses on the blog all the time, but they’re truly my favorite. Yes, they’re technically wine glasses, but I use them for literally every beverage: iced coffee, water, juice, etc. so I get a ton of use out of them and not just on the occasion where I sip red wine.
I have had one of these in my cart for longer than I care to admit… I desperately want / need one, but my husband likes for everything to match / be the same and (1) I don’t think he is interested in getting his own matching silk pillowcase, and (2) I’m not ready for full silk bed linens. I would absolutely LOVE to reap the benefits of sleeping on silk though — my skin and hair could definitely use it, especially in this hair loss period of my postpartum life!
It’s no secret that we love Diptyque in this house and their candles make such divine gifts. I will say that I only recommend this option to expert gifters who are extremely close to their gift recipients because fragrances are super personal. I wrote a post here about my favorite candle brands, scents, as well as the tools and how to properly care for them (linking the care set both here and a couple more in the widget at the top of this post).
