Hello! Welcome! Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays! …you sang that didn’t you? 😉
Do you have a few women to buy for in your family this year? Your BFF? Wife? Sister? Girlfriend? but don’t know exactly what to get them, without asking them and giving it away? I’ve created this list to help you come up with great gifts for the women in your life, so that you can surprise them and knock their socks off!
I’ve categorized each gift by type pf girl!
For the Makeup Lover:
Tarte Cosmetics Tarteist Pro Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette
HOT NEW PRODUCT! This palette is insanely popular! The world went crazy when the palette was released, and it’s surprisingly still very easy to get access to! It’s a $53 palette and has the ability to create an endless amount of eye shadow looks! It has 16 regular matte shadows, PLUS 4 iridescent, luster shades, with a duo-chrome effect! You can find it at Ulta, Sephora, and TarteCosmetics.com.
2. Tarteist PRO Glow Highlight & Contour Palette
Another HOT NEW Tarte product! This too made the makeup world erupt with anticipation when it was released on social media! It’s a cream and powder Contour & Highlight palette for that contouring lover in your life! Only $45, and the pan size of each shade is huge! Also available at Ulta, Sephora, and TarteCosmetics.com.
***PRO TIP: One of the best, if not THE best, brush for highlighting, is the Anastasia Beverly Hills #23 Brush, which would really complete the gift!
3. Two.BB.Clean Beauty Blender Gift Set
The beauty blender is, in my opinion, one of the BEST ways of applying liquid foundation! It’s hands down my favorite way of applying mine! It really helps the foundation to blend into the skin, and soaks up the extra foundation so that you don’t look like a cake face! BUT they can be a pain to clean, which is why this gift set is a winner! You get 2 full size beauty blenders PLUS a 5 oz liquid blender cleanser!
4. PLAY by Sephora!
For the makeup lover who seems to have every product and you don’t know where to start: Buy them a subscription to PLAY by Sephora! In my option, it’s a million times better than Ipsy, because you get brands and products you’ll actually use!
For the Bath, Body, Skincare Lover:
Peter Thomas Roth Mask Sampler Kit
Face Masks are AMAZING! If you have a girl in your life who is into all things bath, body, skin care, she wi›ll love a set like this! Also it’s great because there’s a mask in there for every skin type, in case you might not know what skin type she has!
**Gift Idea: Split up this set to gift each mask separately to your 5 best girlfriends!**
2. Bath Bombs, Fizzers, Melts, & More
For the girl who loves her me time in the bath tub: bath accessories like bath fizzers, bath bombs, and bubble bars are adorable and satisfying gifts! Companies like Lush have incredible gift sets already curated for you in adorable gift wrapping! It might be hard to get them online this close to Christmas, but I know the last time I was in my Lush that had TONS! The Ginger bread SNAP-FIZZ-RELAX bath fizzers are by Zoella, and my local Target carries them!
3. Bath & Body Works Gift Sets
You can never go wrong with a gift set from Bath & Body!
For the Fashion Lover:
Blanket Scarf + A Beanie
Sometimes it’s hard to find exact clothing items someone will love unless they tell you exactly what they want! My idea is that it’s best to gift items they can add-on to existing outfits they already have! Like scarves, beanies, jewelry, belts, etc. And I’m all about giving coordinating pieces as gifts! Both items can be found at: J&J Petite Boutique.
2. Sock Boots
HOT TREND ALERT! This style of bootie is all the rage this year! They’re a little different from the traditional bootie, but not quite a full on boot! I am OBSESSED with this new trend! They are available at most stores these days, and can be found at many different price points! If your girl is in to fashion & trends, but can’t bring herself to splurge on a nice pair of boots, this would be the perfect gift for her! LOVE!
3. Fuzzy, Warm Socks
If you’re on a budget, but still want to make your girl smile, get her warm, fuzzy sock!! She will LOVE them! Cabin Socks are an adorable take on the classic fuzzy socks, because all the faux & warm is on the inside, and all the cuteness is on the outside!
For the Baking Lover:
One word: Target.
All of this stuff is SO affordable and SO adorable! And EVERY girl loves gold! To make a cute little gift set, grab some of these accessories, plus a coordinating apron, and a tray or cutting board, tie it all up with a bow and you’re set! Literally. 😉
For the Coffee Lover:
1. Put Together a Coffee Gift Set
Anyone who loves coffee, LOVES getting mugs or travel mugs! Put together a little gift set by buying a basket or tin of some sort, putting in a mug, some ground coffee, k-cups, maybe some stir sticks, and even a Starbucks Card. The coffee-enthusiast in your life will thank you.
2. A Nice Travel Mug: Kate Spade Thermal Mug
This Kate Spade New York Holiday Village Thermal Mug is absolutely BEAUTIFUL and is $18! Most girls love anything from Kate Spade, anything Christmas, and if she loves coffee, she’ll love this Thermal Mug! Nothing like making that coffee last a little longer 😉
3. A Coffee Themed Phone Case
Starbucks Phone Cases can be found on Amazon and are extremely affordable and totally adorable! And if she’s coffee obsessed, she’ll be totally obsessed with this case!
Of course these are just some ideas I have and things I know I would love to receive, as a girl 😉 I hope they give you some inspiration & gift ideas!
Merry Christmas & Happy Gift Giving! <3
