Well it’s that time of year again! I asked you what kind of gift guides you wanted to see and I rounded them all up here. I tried to be very selective and intentional with them so I hope you love them. Be sure to click every photo and scroll through the sliders for the direct links. xx


Before I jump right in, I wanted to give you guys a few tips:

  • USE EBATES! There are so many retailers, including Sephora that will give you a certain % of cash back for your purchase so it’s an additional savings!
  • Use plugin: Honey so the best coupon is automatically applied during checkout.
  • Dec 10th is usually the cutoff on standard shipping so don’t spend $10-$15 more on faster shipping! Get your shopping done ASAP.




So my list was probably the most difficult list to put together because luckily, I get to work with brands who gift me products throughout the year so I have sufficient material things. I would much rather get a plane or concert ticket. BUT that would be no fun. So I decided to put together a list of things that are definitely worth the investment but a little pricier to buy for myself. For example: workout shoes, walking, comfortable sneakers. I take for granted wearing comfortable shoes and you’ll usually find me in some kind of heeled bootie or mule so I think sneakers or workout shoes is a great gift because they’ll last for a while and will definitely use them often.






This one can be for your significant other, best gf, sister, any of the special ladies in your life that deserve some spoiling. Some of these pieces you’ll find on my wishlist and some of them are gifts I’ve received in the past that I’ve absolutely fallen in love with.




This one’s for any guy in your life that probably won’t tell you what they want for Christmas. I know Lupo is always difficult to shop for because he says “you don’t need to get me anything.” A robe. Lupo loves to wear mine around the house that I finally decided to get him his own. This is nice because it’s all about comfort for men and I think you can’t go wrong with a high quality bathrobe like the one, I’ve linked below. For reference, I wear a Small, Lupo wears a Medium. While you’re at it, throw in some comfy slippers or slides and watch him be impressed. Boxers and socks. This is a necessity that they probably aren’t buying themselves. As cheesy as it sounds, buying them an essential is the best way to go. For your techy dude, how about a google home, fit bit or old school Nintendo? Or surprise him with some beauty goodies. Lupo loves digging through my top shelf for face masks so get him his own and other people probably won’t be getting him that so he’ll appreciate it.






While on the beauty topic. I’m not sure where to even begin. My beauty holiday can go on for days. The deals are just SO good!! See for yourself. There’s something for everyone too! Hair supplies, skincare, makeup, body, you name it! No one will be mad if you give them something below, trust me.


These are my favorite because they’re so cute yet so special!
For stocking stuffers, buying things in bulk is sometimes worth it, like a pack of lip balm or tiles (for the forgetful ones that lose their keys, wallet, etc)
Bougie nail polish is always cool too because let’s be honest, we all want it but probably aren’t going to buy it for ourselves.








These can be a little tricky. Whether it’s a white elephant for your family or office party. I’ve found some of the coolest gives to give that isn’t overdone or cheesy.
Books. There are so many cool ones out there. Personally, I love self-help motivational books so that’s always a fun gift to give.
23 & Me I think I hear about once a week “I want to try that 23 & me thing” so there you go. It’s amusing so people will love it.
I’ve also included some fun kits like a “make your own chili kit,” “s’mores kit,” etc.
Then there’s always some gag gifts that you can’t go wrong with!

I think that just about wraps it up. Time to get shopping. I’ll be including a few more throughout the weekend so definitely check in. Let me know in the comments below if there are any other cool gifts I might’ve missed in these categories. Happy Holidays! xx
