If you know me, then you know I love celebrating every. single. holiday and I am obsessed with gifting.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I love receiving presents and goodies, but I’d much rather give give give.
I thought it would be fun to put together a little gift guide for that special lady in your life. AND this gift guide works for your gal pals too. I love giving little notes and goodies to my friends.
If you haven’t already shopped and need some last minute ideas, below are some of my favourite items that I’ve seen recently and I know I would appreciate receiving.
ONE: I LOVE a good dark lipstick. I’m a big big fan of the wine colours (you could actually call me obsessed). I think it looks good on pretty much anyone (maybe it doesn’t and I’m just super nice) and I could collect them all day long. Bite has an amazing one. It’s smooth to put on, stays on forever and the colour is perfection. I think this would make an amazing gift in any colour.
TWO: Frank has an amazing brand. I love their coffee body scrubs and their highlighter (purchased it before Christmas). One of my good friends has these lip tints and they are so so good. You can get them individually or you can get them in a gift set of 3. Be generous and get someone or yourself all 3 ;).
THREE: This blush has been on my list for YEARS and I finally purchased it late last year (Christmas gift for myself I believe) and I’m obsessed. I use the shade ‘orgasm’ (great name right?) and it’s just the most perfect shade of pink and it stays on all day as well.
FOUR: I don’t wear a lot of foundation. In fact most days I go without it. I’m an all natural, let the skin breathe kind of gal. BUT sometimes I have those dark circles that just won’t quit or a zit (ugh), so I use this. It’s super lightweight, I love the company (been using it for years) and it stays on all day as well. It also hydrates the skin and gives you a dewy look. Get it.
FIVE: If you know me, then you know I love love love pillows. In fact, I’ve been told to stop buying pillows. But guess what? I never will 🙂 I think this accent pillow is gorgeous and I want it for my bedroom immediately. If you know any pillow lovers, I think this one is a great gift!
SIX: Anyone obsessed with cozy pullovers? I got a wine coloured one last year and I’m obsessed (I say that word a lot eh?) and this one is no exception. I’ve heard REALLY good things about this cute staple and it’s reasonably priced as well. Comes in a variety of colours, but I’m such a sucker for blush.
SEVEN: I’m not one to buy a purse that isn’t black or tan, but this one is too too pretty to pass up. I’m a big fan of larger bags to carry all my shit, so this one is perfect. I think it’s a perfect tote to travel with (stylish for that airport), commute with or to take to school. You can get this cute thang here.
EIGHT: I’m probably just as big a fan of throw blankets as I am a pillow lover. I have an abundance of throws and I can’t get enough. If I had space (aka an extra bedroom) to make girly, this would be in it. Someone please buy it and then send me pictures of how beautiful it looks in your home!
NINE: Candles are a necessity in any home, so I don’t need to convince you that this is a great gift. They make amazing presents for anyone, because who doesn’t love a good smelling home. I’ve smelled this one and it’s amazing. Also, this brand is incredible and they carry some of my favourite smelling candles.
TEN: Okay. I am not a big big fan of candy, but these babies are delicious. I gifted these to one of my best friends at her engagement party last year and she loved them too. They’re adorable (who doesn’t love good branding?) and they have sooooooo many different flavours and chocolates and they have booze in them? SIGN ME UP.
ELEVEN: I tend to always lean towards dainty jewelry and these earrings tug right at my heartstrings. I think these are the perfect gift for any lady and I think you can wear them day to night. These are on my list to gift myself as I think they’d be a perfect everyday earring!
TWELVE: I tend to buy perfumes that are light in scent and more feminine/fruity, but this one is unreal! I heard amazing things about it from some friends and other bloggers, so I got a sample of it and it’s too too good. It’s musky and sexy and boy do I want to wear it every night. I don’t like to spend too much on my perfumes, so this would be an investment for me, but I definitely think it’s worth it.
Are you shopping for someone last minute this holiday? I know a lot of people don’t see the point in giving gifts for Valentine’s day. BUT, I think even if it’s a small little somethin’ somethin’, the gesture goes a long way.
Let me know if you decide to get someone or yourself anything off this list! I’d love to see what you’re gifting!
