2017 Ultimate Gift Guide for Her


Hey, everyone! I have picked out 10 affordable Christmas gift ideas for any female in your life. Whether your loved one is a makeup lover or a fitness lover I am confident you can find the perfect gift on this list.

Hobo “Lauren” Wallet in “Camel”

1. Hobo “Lauren” Wallet

This first one I definitely do not hear enough hype about. Every female should own one of these. This wallet is a life saver. I found out about these wallets through my mom cause she had owned one.

I bought my mom and I each one of these. It was a few months before Christmas time because the boutiques in our small town were running deals. I dated mine that I still have today to 2014 at least, but it may have even been late 2013. It has been so long that I can’t even remember when we first got them.

Ours are both in awesome condition. I haven’t used another wallet since owning it.

They are a spendy wallet if you are buying them at the full retail price ($110-$128). I purchased my Hobo when our local boutique was running a 50% off the entire store. However, I can tell you that Nordstrom Rack has these for sale. In the “Lauren” style there are 59 different pattern options on Nordstrom Rack alone.

Here is the catch though, they are constantly sold out. Right now of the 59 prints only 4 of them are not sold out. A few weeks ago they even had several of the colors for only $34! What a steal!!

Naked Heat by Urban Decay, Tartelette Toasted, Morphe 3502 Second Nature

2. Warm Toned Palette

Is your mom or girlfriend a makeup lover? If so, I can almost guarantee you she has her eye on one of the warm-toned eyeshadow palettes on the market. They have been the hype this year. About every makeup brand has their own version, so if she has a favorite prestige brand then definitely go with that brand.

Specifically, the warm-toned Urban Decay Naked palette has received a lot of attention and praise this year. The Naked Heat palette retails for $54.00. That is a decent chunk of change; however, the palette does come with 12 eyeshadows. Last year around this time Urban Decay put their Naked Smoky palette on sale for half off in all the major retailers.

Scentsy Etched Copper Warmer, Scentsy Bon Voyage Warmer, Scentsy Carrara Warmer

3. Candle Warmer

This is definitely something almost any lady on your Christmas list could enjoy. There are so many fun styles and you can find these at the major stores and could probably catch a great deal on one during one of the holiday sales.

Scentsy is a candle brand that offers a variety of really cute styles, but Walmart and Target also sell candle warmers. You could even pick out some scent melts to finish off the gift.

Threshold Fuzzy Blanket in “Scarlet Mystery”

4. Fuzzy Blanket

In my opinion, everyone could use another fuzzy blanket. You can never have too many of them. I currently own four from Target’s Threshold brand, but if you or anyone you know has access to a Costco membership they sell AWESOME ones there. I am in the market for one myself because the fuzzy blanket obsession is real.

Can you be too warm during cuddle season? (You can’t.)

Three Bird Nest’s Messy Bun Confetti Knitted Beanie in “Mustard”

5. Three Bird Nest’s Knit Hat with Space for Bun

It’s the season to stock up on winter scarves, hats, and gloves. The one thing that many females can agree on though is they hate wearing a hat because it messes up their hair. Most of the time they just are not cute.

Which is why the Three Bird’s Knit Hat made my list this year, this hat is absolutely adorable. Not only do they come in so many gorgeous colors it has a hole at the very top of the hat where you can pull your ponytail or messy bun through. You know those things that are so genius you just think “I don’t know why I didn’t think of this myself”. That is how this hat makes me feel.

The hat provides necessary warmth to your ears, but you still get to do those classic messy buns (or ponytails). I mean what more could you ask for out of a hat?!

Pop Your Pup Personalized Shirt

6. Pop Your Pup Customizable Shirt

If your loved one is a dog lover let me tell you about this amazing site PopYourPup. You essentially just upload a photo of a dog and you customize how you want the design to look. Pop Your Pup offers so many super cute graphic backgrounds (even donuts and pizzas). If your girl is a lover of donuts and her pup BAM you just killed two birds with one stone.

Pricing varies on what style of shirt you pick out. They even do home decor and offer gift cards (if you are nervous about designing a shirt for someone else).

Hydroflask 18 oz Wide Mouth in “Graphite”, Hydroflask 32 oz Wide Mouth in “Sage”

7. Hyrdoflask

Again, this is something I feel like would make a great gift for anyone on your list. My husband and I both own one of these. Hydroflask advertises they keep beverages cold for up to 24 hours and hot for up to 12 hours. From my experience, I can definitely stand by that claim.

I first came in contact with these when the coffee shop I was working at during that time started selling these as retail. I know what you are thinking it’s pricey for a cup, but let me tell you the investment will be well worth it.

These things are MAGIC. I personally like this for ice water at night. You know when you wake up in the middle of the night and look over and all your ice is melted? Say goodbye to that problem!

A little funny story about the Hydroflask is the last time Mike and I took a 13+ hour road trip I brought mine with me and filled it with ice water. I eventually drank it all, and I actually got frustrated because the ice would not melt and I was thirsty.

Lush “Snow Fairy” Gift Set

8. Lush

Lush is a great company that offers awesome products for baths, showers and so much more. If your girl is into pampering herself this is definitely an awesome option for you.

I am not a huge fan of baths myself, but I spoke about their lip scrub in my 2017 Fall Essentials. However, on the rare occasion that I do find myself taking a bath, bubbles are crucial. Their bubble bars are absolutely perfect, I split “The Comforter” bubble bar into two and it still creates so many bubbles. I definitely recommend.

Can’t just pick one product? Lush offers gift sets.  With the gift sets, you have a well put together gift and you didn’t even have to think about it.

Erin Condren Life Planner in “Floral Stitches”, Create 365 The Medium Happy Planner in “Boho Deep Tones”

9. Planner

This is the perfect gift if you have a lady on your list who is a Type A personality or if she just likes to have her life together. It is also a great time of year to give a planner as a gift with the new year approaching.

I think it is great to give gifts that the receiver wouldn’t buy for themselves. When I think about a luxury planner I think of the Erin Condren planners. The LifePlanners alone retail for around $55-$60. So many super cute prints and add-ons available!

If you’re looking for a more affordable planner I recommend checking out “The Create 365 The Happy Planner” by Michaels. The full-size one retails for around $24.99- $34.99. HINT: Michaels offers a 40% off coupon for any regular priced item on their website.

FabFitFun Fall Box 2017

10. Subscription

If none of those other options sounded like what you were looking for buying a subscription service for that special lady in your life is an awesome idea. It is the gift that quite literally keeps on giving.

A few subscriptions I have heard great things about are FabFitFun, BoxyCharm, and Scentbird. With a FabFitFun box, you get a new box 4 times a year all centered around products that will be great for the season you’re in. BoxyCharm and Scentbird are monthly subscriptions.

If you plan on purchasing any of those subscriptions, don’t pay the full retail price. There are so many influencers that have coupon codes for these products. A quick Google search will pay off!
