As the holidays quickly approach us, time is running out to pick up gifts for our loved ones. I know this time of year can be daunting for some people so I wanted to create a Holiday Gift Guide to help give you some gift ideas. The following are gifts that are currently available and I have linked each one of the gifts to the website where I found them. The gifts are also categorized by the "type of woman."
NOTE: This is not a paid or sponsored post and none of these companies know I am featuring them in this gift guide. These are just suggestions I thought would help some of you out during this time :) Maybe it will spark an idea to something else. Who knows!?
Let's get started!!!
The Beauty Lover:
For the beauty lover in your life, the best gift is to get a set with a bunch of trial-sized products. This is the perfect way to try new products without the (price) commitment of buying full-sized products she may not like.
Too Faced: All I Want for Christmas
This set includes:
- Full Size La Crème Lip Cream in exclusive shade Believe
- Full Size Shadow Insurance
- Exclusive Blush/Eye Shadow Trio Compact
- Deluxe Size Perfect Eyes Eye Liner in Perfect Black
- Deluxe Size Lash Injection Mascara
Benefit Little Love Potions
This set includes:
- The POREfessional
- It's Potent! Eye Cream
- High Beam
- Stay Don't Stray in light/medium
- Watt's Up!
- BADgal Lash
- "That Gal"
- Hoola Ultra Plush
A few months ago Sephora revamped their entire nail polish line. It's now better than ever! This is the perfect way to play with a variety of nail shades and textures and test out the new formula. This set contains opaque metallics, solids, and confetti glitters in shades that will last through the seasons.
Formula X for Sephora- The Twenty Two
This is a cheeky book full of fashion definitions. It's so cute and any fashionista will appreciate it.
As far as fashion is concerned there are only two ages- girlhood and womanhood.
(There are also grandmothers- but it is only necessary to dress as a grandmother if you have a certain kind of figure and lead a certain kind of life.)
You can dress to suit yourself- and therefore your age- but this does not mean that you have to wear clothes that make you look old."

A graphic tee can be paired with numerous outfits! Pair it with a blazer, denim, and pumps or dress it down with cut-off shorts and a pair of Converse. Plus, graphic tees with brand names or city names are really on trend right now.
Celine Paris Graphic Tee
A statement necklace is a MUST in any woman's closet. Statement jewelry takes a boring outfit and turns it into something totally chic and well put together. Stella & Dot have really cute pieces, but you can find statement necklaces anywhere.

Bokeh is really popular in photography right now. Getting the perfect blurred lighting background is a must for the holiday season because it is so festive. It makes any picture look more professional.
Bokeh Kit for Cameras
This camera is perfect for the girls who love pictures. The thing with this camera is that it's a modern-day polaroid. Once the picture is snapped, the film feeds through the top of the camera and you are instantly greeted with a cute picture. This would be a fast and perfect to create collages of friends or family because you get the pictures instantly. Just make sure to purchase camera film because you'll need it!

The Tech-Savvy Girl:
Touch screen gloves are perfect for the girl who Never Gets Off Her Phone! She can keep her hands warm while checking Facebook or editing pictures on Instagram.
Isotoner Touch Screen Gloves
And who has time to wait for their phone to charge, anyways? These portable chargers are perfect for the busy girl to take on the go. I think they would also be good to travel since you're more likely to use your battery up taking pics or googling directions to the best restaurants in town.
PowerRocks Magic Stick (Portable Charger)
The Best Friend:
Really anything monogrammed is a good idea. Who doesn't like something that is only theirs? I think it would be cute to get matching scarves with your best friend. :) Or maybe you could personalize a mug or something... Hmmmmm

Spa Gift Set
For this idea, I think it would be cute to create your own gift by hand selecting certain things to create a spa gift set. It would be super easy to take a wicker basket and fill it with spa-themed things. You could include small candles, a facial mask, a towel (optional: personalized), maybe a turbie twist, a robe, soaps, and bath salts/melts. There are TONS of bath salts, bath melts, and soap DIYs on Pinterest! This can be an extremely personal gift depending on how much time and effort you're willing to put into it.
What mom doesn't like to feel pampered? I suggest getting a bath set in her favorite scent so she can relax after all the stressful holiday madness. Hey, somebody's gotta cook all that food!
Body Shop Gift Set
This set includes:
- Cranberry Joy Shower Gel
- Cranberry Joy Body Butter
- Cranberry Joy Body Polish
- Cranberry Joy Mini Heart Soap
This next gift is specifically for the mom's who need a little extra help in the skin care department. These products contain great ingredients such as Vitamin C (which brightens skin) and Lactic Acid (which sounds scary, but really just hydrates the skin and lightens any dark spots).
Philosophy Festive Favorites
This set includes:
- Purity Made Simple
- The Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash
- The Microdelivery Peel Vitamin C/Peptide Resurfacing Crystals
- The Microdelivery Peel Lactic/Salicylic Acid Activating Gel
- Hope in a Jar
- Hope in a Jar Night
Again with the personalized gifts. I think a personalized necklace or matching bracelets would be super cute to share with your sister... even though she can be stubborn sometimes and doesn't listen when you give her advice... (clears throat) lol it's still important to have something special you both share- other than your mom, of course.
Since I have two sisters, I think it would be cute to recreate the Three Wise Monkeys (hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil). Each picture could go into a spot in the frame! :) OR of course, you can just fill it with whatever pictures you already have. I personally like all the pictures to be uniformed by color, so I'll make all the pictures black and white, sepia, or whatever you like...
Well, that's it!
It took a long time to create this list, but hopefully it will help someone out there who is kind of stuck on what to get for their woman in their life. The best gifts are those that hold some kind of meaning behind them. Again, these are just ideas and suggestions. Maybe they will spark another idea. Who knows? Just have fun with it. I hope you all have a wonderful time over the holidays and enjoy the people you have in your life. :) Now go shopping!!! ;P
