Last Minute Christmas Gifts

Christmas is right around the corner. Literally. How did it get here so fast?! If you are behind on your Christmas shopping, keep reading to get some last minute gift ideas. A ton of stores do free rush shipping the closer it gets to Christmas, so be sure to take advantage!


Gucci Wallet on a Chain

A nice little purse is a gift that someone will keep forever.

Tiffany Ring

I think Tiffany rings are great gifts, because like a nice bag, you can keep these forever.

Reformation Party Dress

Reformation has the best dresses, especially when it comes to the holiday season.

Investment Denim

Instead of buying a bunch of lower end jeans and having to replace them frequently, a few pairs of nice jeans are the way to go.

Diptyque Candle

These are always a gift suggestion from me. They are so beautiful to look at, and they smell even better.

NARS Palette

I have recently become a huge fan of NARS, and this eye palette is perfect for all of the NYE parties coming our way.

Ouai Travel Kit

This kit is great for a lot of things, but two of them are 1. trying out Ouai products if you are a newbie and 2. all of those vacays you are headed on in 2019.

Puffer Coat

If you are in the Northern Hemisphere, it is about to be winter. That means a long few months of cold weather ahead. This puffer will help ease the pain.

Noise Cancelling Headphones

Noise canceling headphones are an essential for me now. I have a small pair of earbuds that I wear to the gym, but these on ear ones are perfect for traveling.

Sugarfina Bento Box

If you haven’t had Sugarfina candy, I highly suggest you order two of whatever you buy - one for your gift receiver and one for yourself!

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.


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!

Traveler Gift Guide

Everyone has a traveler in their life - hey it might even be you! After living abroad in Switzerland for a year I like to think I learned quite a few tips and tricks while there. These are some products that I know I would love to receive as well as any other traveler this holiday season.

A suitcase set is a great gift. When all of your bags match, it is easier to identify them at the airport.

Bluetooth headphones - also a necessity. You don’t want to have to fumble around with cords the whole trip.

Just because you’re taking a work break doesn’t mean you can take a skin break. Travel size skincare is a perfect gift!

For trips that don’t require a suitcase. Perfect for a weekend getaway or a road trip along the coast.

A journal is a great way to keep all of your travel memories alive. That way you don’t forget all of the great moments.

This may not seem necessary, but I promise you once you start using a travel jewelry case you will never go without.

These packing cubes are a necessity. They keep all of your items organized in the most perfect way.

Instead of constantly buying water bottles, use a reusable bottle like this. It keeps your drink hot or cold too!

Traveling with a backpack rather than a purse is so convenient. It keeps your hands free to take pictures, etc.

A passport case would’ve come in handy when I was abroad. You don’t realize the wear and tear it gets.

You don’t realize how often other people mistake your luggage for their own. Utilize a luggage tag just in case!

After a long day of traveling, your eyes will definitely need some TLC. Eye patches offer a quick fix and are easy to pack.

Cozy Gift Guide

I love using fall and winter as the perfect excuse to get all cozied up at home. There is nothing better than changing into comfy clothes and starting up a fire. These are some cozy pieces that are sure to make some present recipients happy this holiday season.


PJ Set

A PJ set is a great idea. Whenever I want to feel super cozy, I put on a pair of matching pajamas and I feel cute and comfy.

Crochet Blanket

The blanket does not have to be a crochet blanket, but I find that these keep you the warmest. They are also heavier, so they don’t move around as much.


For when you aren’t cold enough for a hoodie, but you still want some extra warmth, a cardigan is the perfect piece. This one is also great to wear to and from the gym.


Yet another easy piece to throw on. You can never go wrong with a pair of leggings. I love wearing leggings around the house because they feel a little more put together than sweatpants but still just as comfy,


During the summer, I typically just wear socks around the house, but when it comes to cooler seasons, I like to have something extra warm on my feet. These slippers are so fuzzy and so cozy.


A fuzzy robe is great for when you are getting ready. I love wearing furry robes in the winter when I am doing my hair and makeup, because it allows me to stay comfy for as long as possible.


This is the easiest piece to throw on at the end of the day. If you come home from a long day and just do not feel like throwing together another coordinated outfit, just throw on a pair of sweatpants. You are good to go!


I am really into hoodies at the moment. This one is just your typical hoodie, but it still gives the ultimate comfort.

For The People That Like to Sweat

Whether you're planning out your New Year's Resolutions, or you're just in need of some new workout gear I've got the perfect gifts for the workout lover in your life. 

I have been seeing these legging and crop bra sets all over Instagram, and I have been dying to try them. (Shout out to @shutthekaleup for starting the Outdoor Voices obsession)

I'm a sucker for a good pair of trainers, and I've had my eyes on these Adidas ever since my dad came home with his own pair of Adidas a few months ago. 

Ok so you've got all this workout gear right? Now you need a cute bag to carry it in. I love this one from lululemon because it kind of gives some Longchamp vibes but is great for your workout clothes as well.

I love my Apple Watch, because it tells me how far I've walked, how many calories I've burned, and so much more. Smart watches are great for tracking fitness as well as assisting you on everyday tasks.

If you are always on the go even after workout classes, bringing along a jacket or sweater is not always a bad idea. I've had my eye on this lululemon number for a few months now.

If you have a friend that is into pilates (or yoga) they are probably obsessed. A.k.a. my roommate and me. You probably also have to hear about how they are always losing their pilates socks. Here is a perfect gift for that friend. 

Hydration is key during a workout. Here are some cute water bottles that are guaranteed to make you look like you know what you are doing.

Here's to the runner in your life. Running with all of the headphone cords swinging around you can be quite difficult. These bluetooth headphones are perfect for the friend who spends their cardio hours running.
