It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Which means it’s also time to start making your Christmas list and checking it twice.
When I ask for gifts and shop for gifts for others, I forget about practical gifts and like to get things that people want, not necessarily things they need. So the gift guide below is full of the type of stuff you would eye throughout the year but wouldn’t necessarily buy for yourself.
This list is also a mix of items that support small businesses OR are socially or environmentally conscious OR are on Amazon Prime in case you’re a last minute shopper like me.
Christmas Gift Guide For Her:
Lighted Make Up Mirror*: This mirror has such good reviews on Amazon and I know several girls who have it and swear it’s changed their make-up routine. If you’ve got a beauty lover in your life, this mirror is for them.
Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer*: This is another beauty product from Amazon that I seriously have been eyeing for about a year and is on the top of my personal Christmas list. This is a one-step hair dryer that is supposed to give you the volume and body of a blow out. Another great gift for a beauty lover!
Passport Wallet*: I actually already have a wallet like this but I love it so much that I think everyone should have one. This wallet fits a passport and boarding pass in it so when you travel, everything is all in one place. I love mine!
LuMee iPhoneX Case*: Call me basic, I don’t care. This LuMee iPhone case lights up on the front so it creates the perfect selfie or front facing video. This is one of those gifts that someone wouldn’t normally buy for themselves, but would be really fun to receive! If you need the iPhone 6/7/8 version, click here*.
Cheese Tray Plate*: A cheese board is another non-necessity but something I find myself wishing I had fairly often. I love this one because it has the cutlery and a piece of chalk to write on the board. If you need a gift for the hostess in your life, this would be a great option!
Faux Fur Lined House Slippers*: Can you ever have too many pairs of slippers? I know I can’t. These aren’t too pricey and have great reviews. I wouldn’t be able to wait until Christmas to wear these.
Rose Gold French Press*: Take the everyday French Press up a notch with this rose gold version! I actually already have this item too, but the color is cheery on a cold winter day and perfect for entertaining. It’s a great gift for the coffee lover in your life!
Baby It’s Cold Outside Mug: One of my favorite small business, Garden Key Co., hand lettered this campfire mug just in time for the holidays. How cute is it? Plus with this purchase, you get to support a girl boss.
Generous Coffee: Need something to pair with the french press or campfire mug? Gifting Generous Coffee also supports small farmers and provides livable ages for workers in the countries where the coffee is harvested.
Hand Beaded Necklace and Bracelet: Proceeds from the purchase of this jewelry go towards providing counseling and therapeutic services to Kenyan youth who have been affected by trauma through Kutoa Project. It’s a gift that keeps on giving!
Beats Wireless Headphones*: Beats headphones are definitely a splurge but a nice pair of headphones is such a great gift. Plus, these are wireless so they are compatible with the new iPhones.
Ray-Ban Round Aviators*: Once again, Ray-Bans are a splurge but this isn’t a practical gift guide remember? Everyone loves (and looks good in) Ray-Bans so you can’t go wrong gifting this classic pair.
adidas Originals Leggings*: Is there such a thing as too many pairs of leggings? Whether giving or receiving, leggings are a universally loved gift.
adidas Cropped Hoodie*: Might as well complete the outfit, right? Just like the leggings, you can never have too many cozy sweatshirts and this one falls right in line with the current athleisure trend.
Wishing you happy gift shopping and a very, merry Christmas!
