My Favorite Things

As I've been working on different gift guides for every group, a few things caught my eye. These are my favorites so far. Some are things that have been on my mind for awhile, and others just came about while compiling the other guides. Take a look for yourself!

Puffer Coat

Puffer coats are all the hype this season - especially the Aritzia Super Puff. Unfortunately, that one seems to be sold out in almost every color!

R13 Combat Boots

I’ve been loving white platform boots recently. Not sure why, but these from R13 are my favorite pair. Find a more affordable version here.

Saint Laurent Bag

Anyone who knows me knows I have a strong love of Saint Laurent bags, clothes, shoes, everything. One day I will buy myself one of these beauties, but until that day it will remain on my wish list.

Re/Done Levi’s

I love every pair of jeans on the Re/Done site, and I have been dying to get my hands on a pair.

Band Ring

I love little band rings, because you can pair them with so many other pieces of jewelry, and they also complete any look.

Card Holder

I have never owned a card holder before, because I never really saw the point. Now, I understand - especially with the whole mini bag trend coming about.

AirPods

No explanation necessary. They are just a necessity.

Outdoor Voices Kit

I’ve written about about Outdoor Voices before, so we all know I am a fan. I think the idea of the OV Kit is so smart, because it makes matching your workout clothes so easy.

Bobbi Brown Palette

The majority of my makeup is Bobbi Brown, and I love getting their palettes around the holidays. They last me all year, and look stunning when applied.

Starbucks Gift Card

This is another self-explanatory gift. I am a twenty-two year old girl and I love Starbucks. Relatable right?

Brush Set

I’ve never had a real makeup brush set. I usually just pick up random brushes here and there - mostly from drug stores. I really want to invest in a nice set.

Skincare Set

I. Love. Skincare. Walking into Sephora around the holidays is so dangerous for me. I am a sucker for all of the gift sets!

Amazon Echo Dot

Perfect for an addition to an “Alexafied” house, or perfect for someone that just wants a small speaker in their room.

A great stocking stuffer. I don’t know one person who hasn’t let their phone die in the middle of the day.

Everyone needs a good pair of gold hoops. They go with so many outfits and will last for a long time.

Digital Photoframe

I love these because it takes the stress out of picking one photo to display.

Polaroid Film

So many people have little polaroid cameras these days, so film is the perfect stocking stuffer.

Everyone needs a tote bag. Whether you use it for travel, work, or everyday, there will always be a need.

Card Holder

A card holder is great for when you don’t want to carry around your big wallet, or if you have a small purse.

 

Coffee Maker

Great for the college student, or the friend with the new apartment.

Truffles

I mean this should be self explanatory, but chocolate is always the perfect gift. It’s the key to my heart at least.

Cocktail Kit

This is perfect for a housewarming gift. Plus, the matte black finish makes it extra sleek and cool.

I love everything Bobbi Brown does, so this needs no explanation. If you haven’t used any of Bobbi’s stuff before, this is your chance to try it out!

Too Faced Palette

Eyeshadow palettes are great for any girl that loves makeup.

I love little jewelry boxes, especially personalized ones. They are great to leave on your counter, and they are perfect to keep your everyday jewelry organized.

Ok I’ll be honest. I haven’t tried this brand of pajamas yet, but I really love the print.

Beanie

A great winter gift, especially for your friends that live in colder regions.

Workout Leggings

These are great for your friend that is ready to kick start their New Years fitness goals.

 

Record Player

A record player is a perfect addition to your home. It is decorative, and it is great to play music and bring a little character.

You have to have a record to play on your record player right? This is one of my favorites.

Beauty Gift Guide

This past year especially I have become a lot more obsessed with skincare. I typically have kept my skin routines pretty simple, but now I love trying out new masks and treatments. This gift guide has a lot of products that have become my favorite as well as those that I want to try.

 

Laneige Water Bank Moisturizer

I am in LOVE with this moisturizer. It smells amazing and makes my skin feel so soft. It is perfect for the winter.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir

This spray is absolutely a dream. It is a little on the expensive side, so it is the perfect item to ask for as a gift. It is so worth it though.

Summer Fridays Overtime Mask

I’ve talked about this mask before, but if you haven’t gotten this mask yet, you absolutely have to. It smells like pumpkins and is the perfect seasonal face mask.

Laneige Lip Mask

Can you tell I love Laneige products? This lip mask smells like watermelons and keeps your lips hydrated through the entire night.

Laneige Eye Sleeping Mask

This eye mask is a savior. If your eyes are puffy like mine always are when I wake up, you have to buy this product.

Garnier Micellar Water

I used to only use makeup wipes, and then I discovered the beauty of this micellar water. It is super inexpensive and it gets the job done. A perfect stocking stuffer.

Bobbi Brown Toner

This product smells so good and makes sure that you get everything off of your face before bed. It has become an essential in my night routine.

Clinique Hydrating Jelly

This is so great for wearing underneath your makeup. It also protects your face from pollutants, which is especially useful in a big city.

Gift Guide for Great Skin

I have always been a huge fan of skincare products. Taking care of your skin is so important, and you will be thankful in the long run. If you have a friend that has great skin or wants to achieve great skin, keep reading for some fun holiday gifts for them.

I recently became a Glossier Rep, and I absolutely adore their face masks. This mask duo is great for a night full of pampering yourself. Use the mega greens mask first and then the moon mask for a complete night of skin rejuvenation. (and don't forget to use my link to get 20% off your first order!!)

Masks aren't just for your face! I love this overnight lip mask for days when my lips feel especially dry. I absolutely can't stand the feeling of dry lips, and this mask is a lifesaver. 

This eye cream has been an essential in my daily routine for as long as I can remember. I always put it on right before I do my makeup, and it keeps the under eyes feeling fresh and hydrated.

Washing your face daily is so important. Personally, I wash mine twice a day, and it typically leaves my skin feeling super clean. I haven't tried this cleanser from Glossier, but I have heard great things about it!

This rose toner has been on my list for a while now. I have heard a lot about it, and I'm dying to give it a try. 

Taking off your makeup can be a pain, but I just started using this cleansing balm from Clinique, and I love it. It is so easy to use and leaves my skin free of any traces of makeup. 

This Clarisonic facial cleansing brush is great because it really exfoliates and digs deep to leave your skin feeling extra clean.

I love tinted moisturizers because it's as if you're combining three steps all in one. You get the moisturizer, the sunscreen, and the tint of color. I especially love the moisturizers with sunscreen (like this one), because it is so important to protect your face from the sun!

I love a good facial mist. I never used to use them much, but once I started I couldn't stop. A lot of the mists are for setting or toning, but I like to continue to use them throughout the day. I love to use a little spritz if I have been wearing my makeup all day and am getting ready to walk right back out the door. It makes me feel as if I have a brand new face of makeup on. 

Having great skin isn't just solely for your face. To keep your skin soft and glowing, I recommend using scrubs. I really want to try this one simply because it is glittery. (It has great reviews too, so that doesn't hurt either!)

If all you're looking for is a good face sunscreen, this one from Glossier is the perfect gift for you. It is super light and feels like you aren't wearing anything at all.

On days when I don't feel like I need that extra tint, a basic moisturizer with SPF is a great option. This one is great because it is thin but still moisturizing.
