Ok so now that we got the kids covered for the holidays, it’s time to move onto “her”. Girls, prep your emails and get ready to forward to “him”. Based on your responses on my gift guide for kids, you guys liked the rules for gift giving. I twerked, excuse me, tweaked, the rules just a bit for this gift guide:
*A simple click on any image will give you pricing information for each item.
a. Joie Dalton Bootie – the perfect day to night bootie. Dress it up, dress it down. Just don’t wear ’em with yoga pants.
b. Chevron Infinity Scarf by Michael Kors – Rachel Zoe picked this as her fave, so it must be “bananas!!!”, right? Check it out at Piperlime and save 30% right now (until 11/19) with code: MERRY
c. Vera Vegan Leather Leggings – A more polished version of your everyday legging – and, yes, you can pull it off.
d. Glamorous Aran Knit Boyfriend Sweater – Simple and sweet.
e. Gap Elbow Patch Sweater – Ok so I admit I bought this for myself. It is comfy, has butt coverage, and looks great with skinnies. Gap is having 40% off again with code GAPXMAS
a. Clarisonic – I have this. I love this. You need this.
b. Bye Bye Undereye – I don’t leave the house without this! A little goes a looong way, and the undereye coverage masks those late nights (due to babies or other reasons people may stay up late which are now foreign to me)
c. Peter Thomas Roth Unwrinkle Pads – I’ve heard nightly resurfacing pads are where it’s at in terms of at-home facial care. This is a staff pick at Blue Mercury (but amazon has a better price) and all the people that work there have perfect skin, therefore, I trust their judgement.
d. Yummie Tummie Tank – Sometimes we need a little “smoothing” out in the tummy area, especially after having babies. Designed by one of the Housewives, this a great base layer to ensure that everything is where it once was.
Gifts that promote physical activity:
a. Toe Pix – Go ahead, sign up for that barre class you’ve been meaning to try. I promise you will be sore for a week afterwards, but at least you’ll look cute in these little gripper socks! Speaking of socks…. throw these in her stocking!
b. Ruffle legging – These compression leggings by Pure + Good are a must-have! Flirty + functional = fabulous.
c. GapFit Motion Crewneck T – I just ran my half marathon in this top. LOVE! It doesn’t ride up, it breathes, and it has those thumb holes which I totally dig for some reason…. so of course, I have this in 2 colors…. and you can save 35% at Gap through November 19th with code: MERRY
a. Cards Against Humanity – Invite your friends over, stress about what you are going to make for dinner for a week, order pizza instead, grab a bottle or two of wine, then play this game. You will laugh and no one will ever remember what you made (or didn’t make) for dinner.
b. HMDX JAM Classic Bluetooth Wireless Speaker – It’s little, it’s portable, it’s inexpensive…. and it plays music really loudly. So turn it up and friends (or your kids) will flock.
Gifts that require thinking, but not necessary:
a. Simplicity Parenting – This book may require some thinking, but your life with be simpler because of it!
b. Nikon Cool Pix – Point. Zoom. Shoot. Not much thinking required.
Gifts that promote love:
a. Romantic Favorites Movie Pack – Put the kids to bed, uncork bottle of wine and grab some popcorn…..Date night accomplished.
b. Personalized Notepads by Pretty Smitten – Go ahead write a little love note after you finish up that grocery list…Oh, and something else I’m smitten about, Pretty Smitten wants to offer all my readers 20% off her entire shop! Use promo code: SISTERS20 through January 1st, 2014. Deadline for Christmas delivery on the personalized items is December 10th. Did I mention she has lucite trays, monogrammed water bottles, holiday cards and more…. all things to love.
c. Wrapsody in Blue Bracelet by Chan Luu – so LOVE-ly.
d. Work of Art Necklace by Erica Sara Designs – A necklace engraved with your child’s artwork. Priceless. [icon name=”icon-heart-empty”]
What do you think, ladies? Which gift do you want???
*This post contains a few affiliate links. That means if you click on one of the pretty gifts and actually buy it, I will get a handful of change in my bank account which will go towards one of those coffee drinks in a red cup that everyone goes nuts over…and I’ll feel like all warm and fuzzy inside. What I’m trying to say is… I appreciate your support because bloggers need coffee (and wine)…but being able to buy wine would require that you buy pretty much everything. Happy shopping!
