Gift Giving Guide for the Ladies In Your Life

giftguide

Let’s face it guys, shopping for the ladies in our lives is miserable. If you’re anything like me, you just don’t know what to get. Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, or Valentine’s Day, we tend to mess it up.

You either take the easy route and fall flat or get really creative and completely miss the mark.

This year, and with the help of my favorite elf, we’ve come up with a complete gift list for your girl this Christmas season that will not disappoint.

Order everything on this list or just one or two items. Either way, she’ll be impressed with your creativity and thoughtfulness and you might just be the one who scores big this year!

FAWN DESIGN

Fawn Design

Every girl needs a great carry-all bag and this is it. Yes, they are listed as diaper bags but my wife has used hers multiple times in situations that have nothing to do with kids. They are made of a faux leather design so they easily wipe clean after her many travels. Stylish, durable, and extremely practical. Go to Fawn Design to order yours.

Life is Rad

Fun, stylish clothing made and printed in house in the Pacific Northwest. Locomotive’s “Life Is Rad” shirt is a perfect addition to any wardrobe. Go for the slim “Life Is Rad” t-shirt and grab one for yourself on under the men’s section.

I’m also told that adult coloring books are all the rage right now. Here are some good choices:

And don’t forget these “very important” Martha Stewart Markers.


LONGEST THREAD

Longest Thread

To go along with the book you’ve ordered her, grab her one of these amazing, soft, and simple throw blankets from the Longest Thread. These 100% cotton blankets are made and shipped straight from Turkey. For only $39, this will be a must-have for reading on her own or Netflix & chill with you.


THE SAVVY HEART

Resurfacer

This site offers a lot of great options but we have chosen to highlight the Espresso Body Resurfacer. Made with 100% natural ingredients, she’s sure to fall in love with the scent of freshly brewed coffee or the amazing skin benefits that come with it. Give her a the opportunity for a long, hot shower or offer to scrub her back for her.


RUBY SNAP

Ruby Snap

What could be better than freshly baked cookies delivered to your door? The ladies over at Ruby Snap bake up some of the best cookies I’ve ever had – aside from my wife’s of course. Delicious, one of a kind cookies that are named after pin-ups. Check them out at Ruby Snap and send your girl either one or two dozen at a time. I recommend two.


PMD

These personal mircodermabrasion (PMD) machines will work wonder on your ladies’ skin. She’ll look fresh, rested, and younger – but don’t tell her that, she looks great no matter what, remember that! This kit comes with a PMD, replacement heads, and skin care products. She’ll feel like a million bucks!
