Holiday 2019 Gift Guide

It’s been a long time since I posted something.  I haven’t been intentionally neglecting this space, but life happens, things get busy, and before you know it – BOOM – it’s December.  With the holidays quickly approaching I thought it’d be the perfect time to do my first ever holiday gift guide!  These items I have on my gift guide are things I’m dying to try, things I use that have brought a vast improvement into my daily life, or things that I’ve found amusing.  In no particular order, check out what I’ve peeped below.

The OPI Gifting Station – $34.95

For the manicured obsessed woman in your life – whether it’s mom, best friend, sister, or wife – OPI has the cutest holiday gifting situation.  First you’ll pick if you want 3 or 24 bottles (picking 24 bottles will be along the lines of you’re having an event and are giving out party favors.  24 bottles of 1 color).  Ideally you’ll want to go with 3 bottles.  From there you’ll choose the type of sleeve you want, Merry X-Mas vs. Happy Holidays.  Then you’ll choose 3 shades from a list of OPI’s most iconic colors.  The simplest gift with a huge impact.  Whoever you gift this too that is mani obsessed will absolutely love it.

Sephora Collection Crystal Roller Facial Set – $34.00

This is such a great stocking stuffer.  I own this facial roller set and I adore it so much.  What I love most about this set is the three interchangeable roller heads depending on what stone best fits your mood (rose quartz, amethyst, and jade) and the travel size pouch it comes with.  I love being able to put the roller in its pouch and pack it in my carry on when I have business trips.  Being able to keep up with your beauty routine on the go is such a plus!  Also, who wouldn’t want a beauty tool that supports lymphatic drainage to reduce the appearance of puffiness and wrinkles?

Birdies – Prices range from $80.00 – $165.00

I discovered Birdies when I was looking for a Mother’s Day gift for my mom earlier this year.  It’s the “stylish flat that’s secretly a slipper”.  They have so many different styles of flats and slides to choose from.  These shoes are super comfortable and can be dressed up or down.  Apparently this brand is a favorite of her royal highness Ms. Megan Markle.  They’re the type of flat you can literally wear from the office, to happy hour, to dinner.  There’s even 4 limited edition styles right now for the little mini-me in your life.  This is definitely a cute gift!

Fujifilm UO Exclusive Instax Mini 9 Instant Camera – $69.00

Have a cousin or best friend obsessed with capturing memories?  This Fujifilm Mini Instant Camera is a thoughtful, yet inexpensive gift.  It’s currently available at Urban Outfitters.  I’ve also seen some at Best Buy.  These cameras come in an assortment of colors.  Whether the recipient of this gift wants to post these mini pics on the gram, or hang them from a clothes pin garland in their room, it’s a great gift to show you enjoy their ability to want to savor every enjoyable moment.

Clear Checker Shot Glass Game Set – $29.99 $14.97

This gift is perfect for your loved one that just got a new place and loves to entertain family and friends.  Whoever plays it has the potential of being drunk in less than 5 minutes, but that’s all part of the fun right?  What’s even better about this gift, it’s currently 50% off at Nordstrom Rack.  Happy shopping!

Teami Blends Skincare Beauty Fridge – $119.99 $89.99

Are you and your friends obsessed with your skincare routine?  A beauty fridge is the perfect holiday gift for yourself or your BFF.  It’s a fridge for all your beauty needs.  From sheet masks, to fresh face masks, to facial rollers and all other skincare products in between, this refrigerator will only amplify your beauty routine.  Ulta currently has one I have my eye on for sale and Beauty Fridge has one for $129.99 with three different color options to choose from.  This gift is a major winner in my opinion.

KNC Beauty – Prices range from $22.00 – $40.00

Another great stocking stuffer option here: any and all KNC Beauty products.  Kristen Noel Crawley’s lip balm is so good.  I love it.  Eye masks and lip masks are available as well.  If there’s someone in your life that is big on clean beauty products this is definitely the route to go.  Lip balms, 5-packs, or 10-packs of eye/lip masks you’ll for sure be getting your moneys worth.

Louis Vuitton Monogram Tower – $3,050.00

Now this gift option is completely insane and I don’t know of anyone that would actually spend their money on this.  To me it’s a waste of money.  I’d rather spend this much money on a REALLY good handbag.  It’s really cute, but I’m amused by it more than anything.  However, if you’re with the top down screaming out money ain’t a thang then do you boo.  I ain’t mad at ya!  This Louis Vuitton “Monogram Tower” is basically a designer Jenga without actually calling it that.  This is the type of gift for two bougie best friends that don’t know what to get each other because they have everything.  Multicolored plexiglass playing pieces with the LV House motifs that can be carried around in a portable plexiglass box.  Like i said, really cute but who is going to drop this much cash on a designer Jenga?  If its you just invite me over for a game or two! (lol)

LV Tower

Pintrill – $12.00

If you have someone in your life that’s always adding some pizazz to their outerwear, then Pintrill is your one stop shop for unique and quality pieces.  From Keith Haring, to Charlie Brown, to fashion and sarcastic sayings, Pintrill has a little bit of everything.  These pins are so cool and creative they’ll definitely impress whoever you’re gifting them to.

BKR Water Bottle – Prices vary depending on product

They say water is the best kept beauty secret.  So on top of good hydration, and reducing your carbon footprint by drinking out of glass water bottles and saying no to plastic, this will be a gift that checks off a good number of boxes for that loved one who cares about her health and the environment.  I love my BKR water bottles – I own five.  They come in three different sizes: 250 ML, 500, ML, and 1 L.  There’s so many different designs to choose from and a lot of cute accessories.  You’ll have to peruse the entire site, there’s so many good options.  A BKR water bottle is a must have item.  So while you’re shopping for your loved one, make sure to add one for yourself to your cart.  I promise you won’t regret it.
