My Christmas gift-guide for wives, girlfriends and Sisters!

Can you believe we are 14 days away from Christmas??!!!  Well, to help you with your last minute gift ideas or give you a little inspiration, I decided it was time I shared with you some of my favorite things and some of the items on my wish list! Dave and I have made up “Wish Lists” for each other over the last couple years, to make shopping a little more easy and a whole lot less stressful. I am super excited about my list this year! So here we go:

1. Velvet

Velvet has been huge lately! Whether it is a velvet shirt, skirt, or dress, you’re looking for, you can find lots of cute styles right at your fingertips and for less. Here are some amazing designs, that the woman in your life would totally love. Here are a couple looks from a previous post:

2. Fashion boots

We girls love shoes, especially boots! Get your girl some boots or booties this Christmas!

3. A Hair Tie Bracelet

I found these bracelets a couple years ago, but I have yet to get one. I wear a hair tie on my wrist almost everyday, and I always end up having indentions around my wrist from the tightness. This would be a perfect shocking stuffer! There are lots of options on Pinterest to check out. The cheaper version is $45.

4. Big Oversized Comfy Sweaters

You can’t go wrong with a cozy big sweater! The bigger the better I always say!!!

5. P.J’s!

Every girl loves new pajamas! Dave and I started a little tradition in which we get each other a new pair of p.j’s, our favorite candy, and some small stocking stuffer items. It is always fun to open up the box of goodies on Christmas eve and get to wear the p.j’s that night!

6. Bath/ Spa Essentials

I absolutely love taking baths with Epsom salts, Essential Oils, and Bath bombs! It is a great way to de-stress and relax! I love using Dr. Teal’s, but some of my favorite products to get for Christmas would be bath and body works products!

7. Scarves, Plaid, and Vests!

These are a few of my favorite things to wear anytime in the winter, but they are really great gifts during the holidays. Old Navy is a great place to pick up all of these items and for a bargain. I also found some really pretty blanket scarves on www.paintedpretty.coFrom old navy (below)

8. Lipsticks and Lip Glosses!

I have probably WAY too many lipglosses and lipsticks, but I just love them. I have not tried the new lipsticks from lipsense, but I have heard amazing things about them and I may have placed this on my wish list for Dave this Christmas. Lipsense is a little pricey ($55 for the starter kit), but it lasts all day long and doesn’t smudge or transfer.

9. Yummy-Smelling Candles

I absolutely love candles and these are simple but elegant gifts to give anyone during the holidays. Some of my favorite candles are the Woodwick candles!

10. Sneakers

Get her some new Nike’s or some fashion sneakers. I have seen a lot of girls wearing sparkly sneakers and I am seriously in love! These are only $34 on

Or these nice sneakers from

11. Water Bottle or a Cute Mug

I have so many mugs, but I just love them, especially the ones with cute sayings. This is a great gift if you are looking for something fun, that won’t break the bank. I found some really fun ones on Pinterest at

12. Makeup and Makeup Sets

The holidays are the best time to get some exclusive colors and palettes that will make her day. They also come in different sizes and costs. Great for another stocking stuffer item! One of my favorite brands ever is Urban Decay and Ulta is a wonderful place to go and shop for any makeup needs ( hint hint).

13.Cozy socks, mittens, and winter hat!

Get her some things that will help her stay toasty and warm! Old navy has a ton of cute cozy winter gear and for a great price!

14. Embroidered Dresses and Shirts!

    1. Thanks so much, Lucy!!! I had fun creating it and thinking about what I wanted for Christmas! That skirt is one of my favorites too and I get so many compliments when I wear it! And yes!!! Woodwick candles are the absolute best !

    1. Thank you so much, Cindy! I am so glad you liked the post! And yes… OMG! I AM IN LOVE with those shoes! I saw another blogger post about them and i did a whole bunny trail to find them! Thank you again for stopping by my blog! I hope you have an incredible Christmas!

  2. Haha wait…did you read my Christmas list? I LOVE getting new sneaks b/c I ruin all my regular running shoes with…well, running. And I always advise my hubs that Urban Decay is a fab brand AND i’m lately obsessed with Stila – their liquid matte lip colors are to die for! Any of those and you can’t go wrong!

    1. Haha… Leah!!!! I love you! I know you love getting new kicks and I could totally see you rocking those fun sparkly shoes! And Urban Decay is so amazing!!!! Love love it! I have heard from a couple people now that they love Stila… I will need to give it a try! I really want some lip sense, but it is sooo much money, so I am totally open to looking for something similar at a lower price. Thanks for the info on Stila! And Thanks so much for commenting, following, and encouraging me- you rock! I hope you and Josh have an incredible Merry Christmas!
