Gift Guide for the Girl Who has Everything

We all have the friend that seems to have all of the latest and greatest! This is great for her but makes it is not so easy to shop for her. I've put together some special gift choices. 

I've been looking for some unique gifts for the home. These geode coasters are a conversation starter and look great on a coffee table. These champagne flutes come in a set of 4 and would be the perfect gift with bottle of champagne. 

Most of us own a curling iron and maybe a curl stick. This is supposed to be one of the best curling wands and you can buy more attachments for it. This wand set has several interchangeable heads to achieve different looks. It is one of those gifts that is something many girls may not buy for themselves which makes it even more special to get as a gift.

If you know a purse girl like me, then another purse would almays make a new gift. This velvet envelope clutch is a stunner! As I've said a few times velvet is on trend this season and fun to add to any outfit. These interchangeable straps are a way to personalize a purse you already own. It is meant to go with many different Kate Spade purses but I bet could work with many others that have detachable straps.

I've had this pave link bracelet for several years and it is still one of my favorites. I pull it out for almost every night out and special occassions.

One of the best purchases I made this year was a mophie! For anyone that is on their phone alot, it is a lifesaver! It charges your phone whenever you need it. I can go a full day of using my phone and not have to plug in my phone for a charge.

Men's Gift Guide

I may sound like a broken record but I really can't believe how this year has gone by! It's already December 1st! I'm a big proponent of getting Christmas shopping finished early so it is out of the way and you can enjoy this season with less stress! To help with that goal I have another gift guide and it is for the men in your life! Dads, Brothers, Sons, Uncles.... they will all love these gifts!

A big portion of the Christmas gifts I buy are for men. My brother and Dad are not easy to buy for! I typically try to find something they wouldn't buy for themselves or something that has to do with their hobbies. 

Every guy can use a great fitting leather jacket! This one is soft and at a great price. 

To beat the cold this time year, I recommend these snow boots and tech gloves. This mock turtleneck makes a great layer under a heavy coat or this bomber jacket.

For the tech guy, a portable charger is a lifesaver. It will keep his devices going when he can't get to an outlet. This portable bluetooth speaker will fill his home or office with great tunes. Beats by Dre are a popular gift but pricey. I've heard great things from everyone that has them so they seem to be worth the splurge!

I've seen whiskey stones and glasses given as a gift before and it always seems to be a favorite gift. Add a nice bottle of whiskey and you've got the perfect gift! 

For the gym rat, I'd recommend a new gym bag customized with his favorite team.

Gift Guide for the Women in your Life

I called this the "Mom" gift guide but really it is for any of the women in your life! Moms, Aunts, Sisters, Grandmas, Teachers, Mentors... any of them would appreciate these gifts!

A quality dress coat is a must in any closet! I got this one for my Birthday last year and love it. It comes back every year and there is a reason. The shape is flattering and its so warm! When the temperatures drop, I pair this with everything from denim and sweaters to my favorite holiday dresses. It looks great with this faux fur scarf!

Jewelry is always a good idea! I love the classic look of these pearl drop earrings. This watch is classic with the black and gold but the flower on the face makes it a little more unique. Loren Hope makes some of my favorite jewelry pieces. This cuff comes in several colors.

The cold makes everyone want to spend more time at home. For a cozy themed gift put this initial mug with this fringe sweater. You could also add some hot chocolate mix or a favorite coffee!

Red lips are always a good time, especially during the Holidays! This kit has two mini berry colors and two pretty nail colors. 

For a luxrious or pampering gift, this set of lotions is the ultimate luxury!

Gift Guide under $50

Today starts my week of gift guides!! I'll have four more to come soon so stay tuned! For today's I put together a variety of gifts that are under $50. Many of these make great stocking stuffers. They are also good gifts for Christmas parties where you play dirty santa or another gift game. 

For the beauty junkie this eyeliner is a fun addition to anyone's make up bag. I also love this lip gloss set! This mat helps you clean your makeup brushes. 

I've given this cookbook as a gift many times for showers and birthdays! I like to add a cute oven mitt like this one to it. 

This blanket scarf and infinity scarf are super cozy! 

This velvet t-shirt is soft and looks way more expensive than it is!

For anyone on your shopping list that loves their home or to decorate, I have several recommendations. I love this candle set. The pineapple dish works well on a coffee table, as a jewelry dish or on an end table. These coasters make a funny but still practical gift!

Fitness Gift Guide

We all have friends that love to work out. They are the girl's that are trying all of the latest and newest workouts. Their favorite way to relieve stress is a good sweat session! For these girls or any girls that love the athleisure trend I have the gift picks for them!

Most girls have several pairs of basic black leggings. These color block leggings are a step above the basics! I also love these print leggings.

Health and exercise trackers are always a popular gift. Kate Spade just came out with their version and this is definitely on my Christmas list!!

I love the open back on this top! This sweatshirt is a bit retro and great for after workouts. I also love the asymmetrical neck on this top. 

For anyone that runs or work outs outside, this vest is a necessary layer in the winter. It is thin enough not to hinder your workouts but it will definitely keep you warm!

A new gym bag makes a great gift! This one has tons of great features. I love that it has a heat resistant pocket for your curling iron or flat iron. For a smaller
