With the holidays around the corner and my birthday being at the end of the month, I’ve been getting asked left and right about what I want. Since I hit the age of no longer wanting toys, this has been a really hard question for me to answer every year. Once I was old enough to babysit, I’ve basically had money…At least enough money a 13 year old could want. So I’ve always just bought the things I wanted. And this year is no different. I’ve been dodging the question all month but I finally sat down and tried coming up with a list. I ended up with a list of thing I think most women would like. So I am sharing it in hopes it will help those who have to buy for the girl who has no clue what she wants!
1 Blanket Scarf : these are extremely popular this time of year and they are trending now. So chances are, if your bestie doesn’t have one, she definitely wants one!
2 Puffer Vest: this is another IN fashion piece for this time of year. They really are a great thing to have in the fall/winter, plus they are super cute. Hoping I get one under the Christmas tree this year!
3 Maroon/Burgundy Purse: if you are willing to spend a little more on your gift, a purse in this color is great. It’s a popular fall/winter color and what woman doesn’t already change bags during the week? I mean I actually only own one bag but I hear most women own more?!?
4 Fossil Watch: this is another expensive gift but if you’re buying for your gf, it’s reasonable. Now I know everyone love Micheal Kors and all that but I picked Fossil because it’s a smarter purchase. I’ve compared the two brands and for almost the exact same looking watch, Fossil tends to be $100 cheaper! They also have an awesome 10 year warranty and service their watches. My dads 9 year old Fossil watch stopped working and the company gave him store credit for it, which was the original cost of his watch. He got a brand new one for $40 after the credit. How can you beat that!?!? I also think they look better. A rose gold Fossil watch is one of the best gifts Matt has bought me. I literally wear it every day and everyone always compliments it. ? It my favorite!
5 Anything PINK: not the color, but Victoria Secret’s brand. I am willing to bet that every girl you know owns something V.S. It’s a really easy fail-proof gift to get a PINK hoodie or sweater. Everyone likes to be comfy and look cute.
6 Agenda/Notebook: this may not work for everyone but for a “Secret Santa” work gift.. This seems perfect. Now I love lists and what not, so a cute notebook or planner is a great stocking stuffer in my book. I’m a bit scatterbrained so I need them! Lol
7 Cute Coffee Mugs: another good, simple, cheap, gift is a set of adorable coffee mugs. Idk about everyone else…buuut since this is my blog I’m just going to assume I do… Everyone needs coffee or tea in their life! No more explanation needed.
8 Monogrammed Zip-up: if you’re shopping for a preppyish girl this ones great. I got one from this Etsy shop for Christmas last year and wore the hell out of it. It’s that lazy but put together look every girl wants when they roll out of bed 20 mins late… which happens a lot for me… ?
9 Naked Palette: even the mediocre makeup enthusiast would like an Urban Decay Naked Eye Shadow Palette. It is THE eye shadow everyone is obsessed with!!!
10 Make Something: when all else fails, be creative. If the women in your life doesn’t appreciate a handmade gift, then she’s wrong and you ditch her! I don’t know a girl who wouldn’t get all mushy feelings on you for making her something. I tend to craft something every time I need a gift for someone. It adds a personal touch cause you took the time to physically do something rather then swipe a card at a store. Pinterest has enough tutorials out there that anyone should be able to do something creative. Even the tiniest things could work. Try these DIY Gifts.
So that’s my list! I’ll have to forward this link to everyone and hope I get something off of it! What’s on your list this year?
