Gift Guide: For Her
We are in the process of trying to find something to hang above our living room mantle and I’m embarrassed to admit I’ve spent way too much time browsing through various typographic art in search of the perfect thing to hang in this space. All of this browsing lead me to about a million great sign gift ideas so I figured they should make my gift guide this year. Whether your loved one might enjoy something comforting, spiritual, funny or inspirational, there’s a sign out there for just about everything and the options are gorgeous! I love Minted‘s selection and of course there are no shortage of beautiful signs available on Etsy, like the one featured above from the RootednGroundedHome shop, many of which you can personalize.
File this one under an item I have a feeling many women wouldn’t think to purchase for themselves but might appreciate! Silk pillowcases seem to be getting a lot of hype these days for everything from reducing fine lines, breakouts and facial wrinkles (yes, really!) to helping reduce friction between your skin and hair against the pillow, equating to less breakage and split ends. Sign me up! Prices vary on these a lot from this $21 option on Amazon (900+ great reviews) to the Slip pillowcase which seems to be the high-end choice.
I think I have some form of personalized jewelry on my gift guide every year but I cannot help myself because I’m always drawn to delicate jewelry that also has some kind of meaning. Whether it be your loved one’s initials, their children’s names, the name of their spouse/boyfriend/girlfriend or even the latitude/longitude of a meaningful place or a necklace featuring their home state, I love the idea of giving someone a simple piece of jewelry that seems a little personal.
Some favorites: Cursive Name Ring (stackable with multiple names) / Personalized Skinny Stackable Band (I am coveting a pair of these thin bands with my boys’ names on them!) / Tiny Initial Necklace / Personalized State Necklace
I absolutely love this gift idea for grandparents, a newlywed couple or a family who may have just welcomed a new baby or fur baby into the family. Etsy has many wonderful options from simple cross stitch portraits to more elaborate designs. (I personally love the look of the portraits from the LeaCo Etsy shop pictured above.)
Is it just me or can you never have enough cozy throw blankets? It’s a gift I love to give because it just feels like you’re giving away a cozy surprise that someone can enjoy when they need to curl up on the couch at the end of a long day. Even better: Gift a throw blanket along with a new holiday mug and some of your favorite hot cocoa. We’ve had this blanket from Pottery Barn for years and I love the way one side is a beautiful cable knit while the other side is a cozy faux sheepskin. And this Barefoot Dreams Cozy Throw looks heavenly! Barefoot Dreams makes the softest, coziest sweaters and cardigans (<– another great gift idea! I LOVE mine!) and they have the comfy-cozy material down to an art.
For a different take on a traditional throw blanket, consider a weighted blanket. These blankets are all over the place right now and people seem to love the way they apply gentle pressure over your body to help promote relaxation. Many also rave about their ability to help with sleep and reduce stress. Yes please!
Confession: This is making my gift guide this year because it’s on my personal wish list. How gorgeous are these wreaths? I love them for both indoor and outdoor decor and I’m dying for one to put on display in our built-in book shelf in our living room. I love that these wreaths are simple but beautiful and don’t look overwhelmingly artificial. The magnolia wreaths with the best reviews are a splurge item for sure but there are options out there for some lower-cost versions that might be worth looking into.
Like a new throw blanket, a new cozy fleece is an item I think everyone appreciates! Perfect for cold winter months and everything from lounging around the house to running errands, a comfortable fleece is a great go-to gift item.
Here are a few that popped out at me: This $26 fleece from Amazon (I have this in black and love it — It’s the knock-off version of the Abercrombie fleece that basically blew up on Instagram this fall), Zella Cozy Fleece Bomber Jacket (I want this one in the olive green/gray color), Double Fleece Hoodie (I just wanna curl up in this one!), Sherpa Funnel-Neck Hoodie (perfect to pair with leggings, sneakers and a slouchy beanie), Pullover Hoodie (love the extra long length of this Old Navy find)
