Gift Guide for Her – gift ideas for your best friend, mom or sister!

Today’s Christmas gift guide was the easiest to pull together because they’re basically all things I want (or already own ;). These are fun ideas for your best friend, your mom or your sister. Or, you can send this link to your significant other so he can shop for you. 😉

You guys, I am trying not to panic, but my laptop died. It won’t even turn on. I was working away, and then tried to install the new operating system while eating breakfast and it totally crashed my computer. I spent an hour on the phone with Apple support and they said there is nothing they can do until I can get into an Apple Store. Yeah, okay, that should be fun the week of Thanksgiving. Ugh. It is such a paralyzing feeling to not have a computer since all my work is online. Luckily, I was able to borrow Tommy’s computer to check in on a few things, but I’m just sick about it. I work a LOT, especially during the holidays to pull together gift guides and promo codes and Beautycounter Black Friday details for y’all so this is really crappy timing. But…maybe it’ll give me a little breathing room to be more present and really reflect on all I have to be thankful for, computer or not. But I really, really need a new computer this year Santa Claus. Thanks. (Update: I took my laptop to Triad Mac and they already fixed it!!!!  So much better than dealing with the Apple store and much faster too!)

Gift Guide for Her 2017

1 – As if coffee wasn’t already good enough on its own, how pretty is this copper french press?

2 – This is such a pretty collection of colors–perfect for the holidays and well through the New Year.

3 – I love my  5 Minute Journal! It’s the best way to start and end the day.

4 – This blanket is a pretty neutral color to match any decor. It’s classic but still fun.

5 – I’m all about simple pieces of jewelry that also work well as layering pieces. This one from Gorjana is gorgeous.

6 – Pretty and practical! This water bottle is a must-have for me.

7 – You can’t go wrong with a classic cross-body bag like this one from Madewell.

8 – These cheese boards are so pretty. They make me want to plan a party :). (Never mind that I don’t have any tables at this point while we’re trying to furnish our house.)

If you’re looking for clothing items, I have a lot on my Holiday Shop page and on my Winter Wardrobe Wishlist page! And if you want to give some pretty makeup and safe skincare, be sure to check out my Beautycounter holiday gift guide.

You can see previous gift guides (including one for the guys!) here.
