the girlfriend gift guide
Eeeek! It’s that time y’all! The first holiday GIFT GUIDE!

I wanted to start with my favorite, and that’s The Girlfriend Gift Guide. Presents perfect for your girlfriend, wife, gal pal, sister, mom, mother-in-law, or hey… dare I say, even yourself! Fun printed pieces, beauty favs, cute coffee mugs, cozy throws, velvet scrunchies, and even gingerbread exfoliating sugar cubes! YUM! I had so much fun putting this together and hope it helps to make your holiday shopping easier. I have six gift guides coming this season so stay tuned for even more.

Continue reading for some ideas on how to gift the items above!


Remember, it’s not the amount of money you spend, it’s the thought that counts! All you need is a little creativity and you’ll be giving girlfriend gifts that are sure to bring a smile to her face. And who wouldn’t smile at the site of leopard slippers, a new brush set, or an adorable pom beanie?!

One of my favorite things about gift giving is planning how to put presents together

For example, if you’re giving the Coffee Snob mug ($14), make a homemade cocoa set with mini marshmallows, candy canes, and a hot chocolate packet. You could even place a Starbucks gift card inside if you’re looking to add a little something extra! The cup is so cute you could even make that the “bag” and place everything inside with a cute ribbon or bow to top it off. 

Similarly, with the Stay Fancy wine glass ($16), you could pair it with her favorite wine! I saw the cutest sequin wine bottle bag at the store this past weekend and it was super affordable – it’s the little details that make a big difference. For something extra, think about throwing in some chocolates!

I found these amazing Gingerbread Exfoliating Sugar Cubes ($28) over the weekend and thought immediately about this gift guide. They would make the perfect pamper present paired with a loofa, the glamorous green fir scented candle, and slippers for a cozy night in. Trust me, she’ll love it! 

I also included an incredible acrylic makeup tray ($60) that is expandable and designed to go over a bathroom sink – perfect for someone short on space! It’s very well made and would make an amazing gift alone, or for an extra touch, add the new NARS holiday palette ($42) and Charlotte Tilbury blush ($40).

The boot bag ($18) is one of my favorite items! The collection is so cute (i.e. the makeup bag also included above) and really functional. It’s not something you think to buy yourself but comes in so handy when traveling for the holidays. That way those expensive OTK boots stay nice and your clothes stay clean.

One of the biggest trends right now is necklace layering so I’ve included a beautiful (and affordable) heart necklace ($45). It’s a piece any gal would love and would go with any outfit. How cute would it look wrapped with the green leopard trinket tray ($68)?! So she has somewhere to keep it safe at night.

You can’t go wrong with a cozy throw, and the one above is only $39.50! It comes in tons of colors, so you can match it with her home decor and it’s a really substantial hostess gift if you’re in need. You could even buy several in neutral colors to have on hand for last minute holiday invites!

I recently picked up a pink quartz facial roller ($28) and I’m definitely understanding the hype. Great for destressing and de-puffing, and who doesn’t need that? For a girly “gift basket” you could take the My Vanity Case travel case ($38) and place the facial roller inside with the velvet scrunchies ($12) and makeup brush set ($58). This set just debuted from Morphie with Jaclyn Hill and it’s amazing – and not too costly.

I’ve seen this glitter cannister ($88) for several years now and seriously need to add it to my home decor collection. For the girly girl, this would be an amazing gift to give filled with cookies, candy, or hey even makeup if you really want to make her happy. A fab present for someone who just moved into a new home or apartment, OR for the sparkle enthusiast who has everything.

I really hope these ideas and gifts are helpful! I’ll be back with my Pajama Gift Guide Wednesday 
– one of the most read and shopped posts every year!
