Holiday Gift Guide // For the Ladies

Here's the second installment to my holiday gift guides. I think these gift ideas (or some variation of them) will be treasured by all of the ladies in your life. I did my best to keep things under $100. There are a couple pricier items, but for the most part they are all budget friendly.

1// ASOS Leather Touch Screen Bow Gloves   2// Artifact Uprising Softcover Photo Book
3// BaubleBar Goldsmith Set  4// Urban Outfitters Ecote Bead-Embellished Handbag   5// Lifeproof Phone Case  
6// Jo Malone Wild Fig & Cassis' Candle   7// Rifle Paper Company Gold Foil Notebooks or The World is Your Oyster Print   8// H&M Knit Sweater   9// The Little Paris Kitchen Book

1// For those of you that live in the colder states, ASOS' leather bow gloves are adorable and they are smart phone friendly. No more taking off your gloves to dial, text, tweet or email.

2// If you have any ladies in your life that are picture fanatics, my suggestion is to make them a softcover photo book through Artifact Uprising. Their books are affordable and the finish is beautiful. It may take a little extra effort, getting all their pictures together, but that will just make the gift even more special.

3// Next up, the bling. I myself don't wear much jewelry but I do like looking at it. I found the above set on BaubleBar and I think it would be a nice addition to any woman's collection. It has a little glitz for those who are into sparkle, but it isn't too much, so it still suits those who want to keep things classic.

4// The other glitzy item that caught my eye was this Embellished Wallet on a Chain from Urban Outfitters. I thought the three designs were all gorgeous and they may be a perfect accessory for your loved ones new years outfit.

5// I love my Lifeproof case and I would buy all of my friends one if I had the budget for it. The cases aren't too bulky and they provide amazing protection to an otherwise fragile device. With the amount of money we all spend on our smartphones, I think it is worth a little cash to make sure they stay in tip-top shape. PLUS it's waterproof... I mean, you can literally take the phone with you anywhere.

6// Jo Malone's candles are a bit of a splurge. They are definitely a luxury item, but they smell amazing and the scent will saturate your space. I chose the Wild Fig because that is my favorite but they have other scents that smell delicious too.

7// I love having little notebooks handy to write down inspiration or to remind myself of something later. Rifle Paper Company has these adorable pocket notebooks that fit in almost any bag and the designs are so pretty. I also included a print from Rifle, I think every girl deserves to be told that they can do anything, be anything, dream anything... and to me this print says it all.

8// Every girl needs a comfy sweater. I like this one from H&M because the fabric was nice and soft, and I like the fact that it is a little longer in the back. It's perfect for leggings.

9// Last but not least, I don't know if every girl dreams of Paris but I think most of us appreciate good food. I saw this book in Anthropologie and I wanted it instantly. Not only are the images amazing but the recipes aren't too intimidating and the food, well it looks delicious. If you have a foodie friend, or a wanna be chef... this might just be the gift for them.

I love finding the perfect gift for all my loved ones. If I could buy presents for a living, I would be over the moon. 

I've been doing some Christmas shopping this week and my biggest problem is once I purchase the gift I want to give it to that person right away. I honestly can't wait to see them open it. That is why I normally put off all gift shopping to the last minute. But this year, I am working within a budget and I find it is better for me to start things early and spread the purchases out. What about you, how do you like to do your Christmas Shopping?

Up next a Holiday Gift Guide For the Guys!

Happy Shopping!

I just need to take the plunge and get a LP case... I just would want to take it off sometimes and jazz it up a bit... :)
