Happy December! Today marks the start of the most magical time of the year! We can start opening our Advent calendars (although I may have peeked at mine a bit early) and start listening to our favorite Christmas songs without judgment from the Grinches (again, I was a bit early with this as well – what can I say?! I just love the Christmas season!).

Spreading Christmas cheer is one of the best ways to show your loved ones how much you care. Thoughtful gifts, whether large or small, can go a long way. You don’t have to spend a lot of money, but be sure to show your bestie, sister, mom, wife or girlfriend what she means to you. I’m sure you have plenty of fabulous women in your life, and any of these gifts are certain to please!

Everything on this list is either one of my favorite tried-and-true products or is currently in my shopping cart. I wear one of these Fresh Sugar Lip treatments almost every single day. They are so creamy and nourishing but have a great pigment too. My favorite shades are “petal,” “tulip,” and “poppy.”

Speaking of lip color, my YSL Rouge Pur lipstick has continued to be one of my favorite beauty splurges for years. It glides on smoothly and stays in place. Besides, doesn’t every girl deserve a high quality classic red lipstick?

I saw this exact bracelet in a small boutique in Newburyport years ago, and to this day I still regret not getting it! I’ve been seeing it everywhere lately and love that the message is so inspiring. Plus, it is so dainty that it will work well with other jewelry.

Although love my T3 hairdryer (and highly recommend because it dries hair in minutes), I rely on my Hot Tools 1.25 inch barrel curling wand for everyday loose curls and textured waves.

I also highly recommend the soft sole Minnetonka slippers. I’m not a fan of slippers with clunky rubber bottoms, so these are my favorites for everyday wear. Perfect for getting snowed in with a cup of hot cocoa or warming up after a long day of skiing.


These are just a few of my favorite things! What are you gifting this year?
