This week I am putting together some gift guides to make your shopping easier this year – and I want to start with YOU. Listen, if you have someone requesting a Christmas list from YOU, girl – you give them an actual typed list HA! Ok maybe not that – but how often do we discount ourselves and never know what to say? Or just say way too practical things? So I have been putting together a list of things that I personally LOVE and always think (if I have them) that every woman needs :).
Barefoot Dreams – This brand of blankets, sweaters, and robes is the dreamiest of dreamy :). I didn’t really buy into the hype until I won a big Nordstrom gift card from RF and decided to treat myself. O. M. G. I am in love! I first got a blanket, then a cardigan….and then another cardigan HA! I love the blanket, but I have to admit that it already has some big holes it. It may be because of kids and dogs, but I would definitely recommend that if you are going to invest (not very cheap) in these items, or ask someone else too for you, you get a cardigan! Y’all. Nothing is as soft as these pieces. I have two – one I wear every single morning as my morning cozy robe. It’s not exactly a robe, I am actually not a fan of them -they are too hot. That’s why I love this cardigan, it is shorter than a robe, does not tie up, super cozy, but lightweight. It is one size too big and I could (well pretty much do) live in it. It has become part of my morning routine to put it on and I literally look forward to it. I wash it often because I like it to smell like fabric softener HA!, and it washes up well. The second cardigan I have is the hooded one. It is long, not as thick and I wear it out and about . I got a M/L in it and it fits perfect. It is so cozy and feels like I am wearing a blanket :). Links below – I know the price is ridiculous, but I have to tell you that it is worth it if you can swing it -Christmas is the perfect time to ask for it! There are lots of great deals right now on these for Black Friday – so maybe you need to just treat yourself to a “Thanksgiving Gift” HA! Also – Nordstrom Rack has them occasionally for a great price! Ok – links below 🙂
I don’t care how basic I sound when I say this – but Uggs are the bomb :). I seriously still love them and I don’t care who knows it! They are warm and I think there are so many cute ones now. They are perfect for drop off in the morning and I don’t care who you are, having them on your feet on those cold days are like heaven. I personally like the sweater ones and the new Mikas because they are not as bulky. Yes, you can buy knock offs – but if you have someone wanting to treat you – have them get you the real thing and you won’t regret it! Here are links to my favorites – I included a few girls’ ones too because here is a great hack: If you have can wear a size 9 (closer to 8.5) or below – you can wear the girls biggest sizes! Uggs run big – just try them on :).
Another thing I also treated myself to this year was a Fitbit Smart Watch. Now that I walk, I wanted to track my steps, heart rate, etc. I could have gotten an Apple Watch, but I really love my Fitbit Ionic. The Fitbit Versa is awesome too. I love having that digital watch on my wrist that can tell me everything I need to know (and more), but also keeps me accountable. If you do not have a good watch – I bet you would love one of these or an Apple watch! Here are links to my favorite Fitbits at both Nordstrom and Amazon -just in case one of them end up having a better deal for Christmas. One more thing – Amazon always has great bands – I will link a few of those too!
I think every woman needs THIS Bible. I bought it a couple months ago and it has already blessed me immensely. It has devotions IN IT! I love that because it makes it so easy to not only spend time in the word, but also be lead by devotions from amazing women. It would be a great gift for you to treat your friends as well – check it out!
I have to include Lash Boost in this list! It is an amazing Lash Growth Serum from RF! It is so easy – but gives such a big impact! You just swipe it on at night before bed like liquid liner and after 6-8weeks you will see a HUGE difference in your lashes – for real! It will last you at least 2 months – more like 3-4. Check it out here and if you would like to try it out at the best price, but no commitment, you can pay via this link – just send me your address 🙂
And then a couple practical things that we all need to make our lives easier – Instant Pot, Air Fryer, and Roomba. The Instant Pot is a game changer! I so badly wish I had one when I worked full time for all those evenings when I got home and realized I forgot to put dinner in the crockpot. Y’all – you can take frozen chicken to cooked and served in an hour or less! And it’s good! Don’t let yourself get intimidated by it -that is what Pinterest is for! Trust me! I don’t have an Air Fryer yet – but it is on my list. Every IG-er that I love swears by it – so obviously I NEEEEEED IT! I also really want a Roomba, but Shane tells me that our dogs would lose their minds and it would not last long HA! Everyone that I know that has one – SWEARS BY IT! Anything that will clean this house for me – sign me up!
Ok that’s all for now – I will continue to share things as they come to mind on my IG :). If you would like me to send this to someone specific for you – you know I will hook you up! Just leave me a message or email me via the contact tab above and I will be in touch :). Happy Shopping!
