When it comes to shopping for the ladies, my method is clear: find things I like for myself, and spread the love! Here are items your sister, mother and girl squad are sure to love this holiday season!
Whether you’re looking to give the gift of Laura Mercier‘s luxurious hand cream to your best friend (best stuff ever!), or hand-deliver the perfect Kate Spade handbag to your mother. Shopping for the ladies, is always extra fun. To me, the best gifts are the ones that someone would love – but not necessarily buy themselves. They’re lovable, but not entirely practical.
In beauty, Philosophy and Laura Mercier bath and body products are always a good start, as is Caudalie‘s iconic face mist — that’s basically a spa day in a bottle. Of course, the luxury beauty of all luxury beauty gift items this year is the stunning Hourglass Ambient Lighting palette, which will give Victoria’s Secret Angel glow to your skin on the regular.
For the wardrobe, I’m all about gifting classic and/or cozy pieces! Whether it’s a pair of killer slippers (Topshop Rudolph slippers!!) or a soft, over-sized sweater for the wintry days where you’re curled up with a cup of hot tea and a good book, or Netflix. Speaking of tea? A set of mugs is always a great idea! Even better when they’re monogrammed – or absolutely precious. I also love buying gifts for the home too. A friend of mine recently bought some personalized gifts (or Cadeaux Personnalisés as they say in french!) and it was such a lovely idea. Personalized items show that you’ve put a lot of effort into a gift and I know I would love to recieve anything personalized. You could also get your loved one a candle, ornament or picture if you want to go down the homeware route.
The kitchen also makes for some really great gift ideas. If you want to get something really special go in on a Kitchen Aide Mixer with some friends or sisters (this one’s on mega sale). I also think a set of pots and pans make for a great gift – on your own or with someone else.
For a keepsake gift, a quality piece of jewelry will always win high marks. Lately, I’ve been feeling classic watches. Michael Kors watches are timeless beauties that will last for ages! If she’s a more of a gadget guru, of course there are the much talked about Apple watches. Apple watches are rapidly growing in popularity and if you can’t find a band that you like, you can even style a designer band on your Apple watch! This is great if you’re into designer products but still love using technology. If you don’t want a smart watch, my sister told me to check out https://www.watchshopping.com/ladies.html for some lovely watches. Shop around until you find the perfect watch!!
Enough talking though! I rounded up a selection of buzz-worthy gifts that your mom, sister and bestie are ALL guaranteed to love, no matter what you’re celebrating this season.
Holiday Gift Guide
Dreamers, as shocking as it is that we’re inching very close to the end of 2015, I’m confess I’m REALLY into the holiday spirit this year. If you follow me on SnapChat (dreaminlace), you may have notice that my stories are basically a nonstop stream of Christmas decorations, Christmas music and of course – touring the Christmas lights around town. Since the clock hit November 1, Hallmark movies have been playing nonstop and every beverage of the day is sipped from a giant Santa mug.
I wish you a wonderful holiday season and I hope you find joy in finding the PERFECT gift for those sisters, mothers and besties on your list, be that watches from Joe’s Jewelry Store, or the new Samsung Galaxy S7 phone. Hey, if nothing else…there’s always diamonds! Or, a MAC lipstick. Done 😉
