The Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide: Ladies

It's the second edition of Emily, Owen and Brittany's Ultimate Gift Guide.  Last week was Kids, and this week is for the ladies!  I have rounded up ten gifts that I think would be really great presents.

1.  J. Crew Coat.  This is a big purchase at $350, but I personally have been lusting after this coat for a year or two.  It's such a classic style, I think it would be used for many years.  I personally like the sandstone and hthr dusk, but it comes in six other colors, too!

2.  UGG Slippers ($120).  I got these slippers last year for Christmas and I LOVE them.  I wear them all the time and at almost a year later, they still look like new.  I prefer the slip on, because it makes them easier to put on and just slip off when I want to tuck my feet up on the couch.  I also really like the hard bottom - that was something I wasn't too sure about honestly when I put them on my list, but it's super nice to have that extra support and sturdiness to the slipper.  I cannot recommend them enough!  And who doesn't love a pair of slippers?

3.  Bare Foot Dreams Cardigan.  I feel like this cardigan is loved by everyone.  While it is pricier ($92), you cannot beat the softness and quality.  I have one and my mom has one...she fell in love with it when I wore mine home at Christmas, so my dad surprised her with her own after the holidays!  I have had mine for 1.5 years now, and it's still great after being wore and washed a ton.  It's nice and long, which makes it so cozy to curl up under, almost like a blanket.  I really think it would make a great gift for anyone!

4.  Kendra Scott Jewelry.  I am a huge Kendra Scott fan and I think anything of hers would make a great gift.  I feel like the Dani / Elle / Danielle earrings are classics, and they come in so many different colors, you can really find a look that suits any style.  I am also really liking the Alex earrings, too for a fun, different shape.  

5.  Mascara Gift Set.  My mom has gotten me this I think 2 years in a row for Christmas, and it's such a great gift set.  You get the Lancome primer, mascara and eye make up remover all in one set.  The primer is one of my favorites, as is the mascara.  All together, the value is $70, but the gift set is only $39, giving you a good bang for your buck!  I have linked to Nordstrom, but in years past I have also seen this at Macy's, although I could not find it online.

6.  Face Mask Gift Set ($49).  I feel like face masks are just so popular nowadays and having a set where you can try out multiple is a wonderful gift.  Something like this could also be split up and used as stocking stuffers or gifts for girlfriends.  Pair with a nice wash cloth, and you have made your own little gift set! 

7.  Cookbooks.  You all know I love a good cookbook.  I have a minor obsession, but they are so fun to look through and really make a great gift.  I personally would recommend any of The Pioneer Woman cookbooks or Barefoot Contessa cookbooks.  One of my best friends raves about Jessica Seinfeld's cookbooks, too.  On my list this year I have the first Skinnytaste cookbook, Simmers, and the newest cookbook from The Pioneer Woman...just to name a few.  I think adding in a fun holiday kitchen towel and utensil, like a wooden spoon would be a great way to elevate your gift giving, too!

8.  Ornaments.  I think ornaments are great presents, because there are so many, you can really tailor your choice to the person you are buying for, whether it be something they are interested in, a trip you took together, or just something that relates to an inside joke, you can always find something!  Like this taco - how fun is this?  Perfect for any Mexican food lover!  Homemade ornaments are really great, too.

9.  One Line a Day: A Five-Year Memory Book ($16).  I saw this a few years ago online and I thought it was just such a neat present.  There is a spot to write something about each day of the year, for five years.  I think it would be so interesting to look back and see how things have changed!  

10.  A Candle.  Who doesn't love candles?  It's a great gift for any lady in your life.  Whether it be someone at work, a friend, or a family member.  Candles add such warmth to a home and I feel like you cannot have too many of them.  There are such great options out durings the holidays, too!  My personal favorites include The Smell of Christmas, Mistletoe Kisses, and Frasier Fir.  I haven't ever burned a wood wick candle for Christmas, but I think they are such fun candles.  I have one right now for fall, and it honestly sounds like there is a fire crackling - how warm and cozy is that?!  Not to mention it's a candle, so not only does it give you the feeling of a fire going in the fireplace, you also get a lovely scent.

Linking up with the ladies above, Jenn and Jessi.

  7. I actually have one of those "five year" books because I think it's the CUTEST and seemingly easiest idea. I always neglect doing it though and I don't know why! I really do think they're awesome though and would make a great gift for someone who would be hesitant to pick one up themselves. :) Also... yes to anything Kendra!

  14. Great choices!! I have one of those Barefoot Dreams cardis on my list, too! And I really want a pair of those slippers, but I can't decide which version I want! Also, I love those one line a day books. I have one for Jacob and Olivia and it's going to be so neat for them to look back on one day.
