Need gift ideas for the holidays? Here are my favorite gifts for 2017! Picks include affiliate links and direct links for easy shopping. I hope you find something special for someone you love!
FOR YOUR GIRLFRIEND
Beauty Counter is my go-to for makeup and skincare. The quality is great, the products are effective and I love that they’re committed to safe products and transparency in the beauty industry. This Ocean Pacific Palette sold out last time it was released, and is only available for a limited time now for 2017 holiday shopping!
FOR THE FITNESS JUNKIE
Okay, I TOTALLY need this one myself. These water bottles got a tech upgrade that helps you drink more water! The Hidrate bottle syncs to your smartphone via Bluetooth and keeps track of your water intake. When you haven’t taken a sip in a while, the bottle glows to remind you to drink water and stay on track with your hydration goals. It’s a genius solution for those of us who forget to drink water (especially during the winter)!
FOR THE COFFEE LOVER
I’m a coffee/tea tumbler junkie, and this KeepCup is one of my favorites. It mimics a paper cup in size and shape, but it’s much more eco-friendly. I love the natural look of the glass and cork combination, but you can customize them with any combination of colors, too!
FOR THE BUSY MOM
This chic keyring tassel from Rebecca Minkoff is more than just stylish – it’s functional, too! The tassels have a USB and iPhone cord built in, so you can charge your phone anywhere.
FOR YOUR NIECES AND NEPHEWS
Keep the kids occupied with this ginormous coloring page poster. It’s great for hanging on a blank wall or spreading out on the floor, and since it’s so big, all the cousins can gather around and take part in coloring it in.
FOR THE HOST(ESS)
These Foodie Dice are such a fun way to get inspired for seasonal cooking. When you roll the dice, you end up with a combination of protein, cooking method, grain/carb, herb, bonus ingredient, and seasonal veggie. It makes meal planning fun and turns it into a game – which is a great way to get kids involved in the kitchen!
FOR YOUR SINGLE FRIEND
This Girls’ Night Out Kit has everything you and your friend might need for a night out. It includes everything from a hair tie and blister bandage to pain relievers and electrolyte tablets, all in a cute pouch that fits easily inside.
FOR THE LIST MAKER
This Gouda Ideas notepad does double duty if your list-making friend is also a cheese lover. The punny notepad looks just like a wedge of gouda and comes complete with a “sweet dreams are made of cheese” watermark on every page. So cute!
FOR THE JETSETTER
Nothing’s worse than a long flight without a good cocktail, but these Carry On Cocktail Kits can help! The compact kits come with everything you need to make a bloody mary, old fashioned, moscow mule, gin and tonic, or champagne cocktail while in the air. They’re the perfect gift for someone who’s always hopping on a flight!
FOR THE DO-GOODER
All of the jewelry sold by the Starfish Project helps restore hope to women and girls escaping human trafficking and exploitation. I love their mission, and all of the jewelry they sell is stunning! The Starfish Project also gives you the opportunity to reach out and connect with the woman who helped produce your jewelry, making it super personal and bringing their mission full circle.
FOR THE SELF-HELPER
I love the no-nonsense approach that this realistic self-help book takes to help you remember that you are a badass! I keep going back to it to reread the chapters that inspire me most, and I’m planning on gifting it to several of my friends this year.
FOR THE GRATEFUL
Writing in my journal is my favorite way to unplug – and this journal is a great reminder of that! It’s the perfect gift for your journal-loving, grateful friend.
FOR THE FRIEND WHO NEEDS A WARDROBE REVAMP
This Winter Style Challenge is like giving the gift of a personal stylist – but for much, much cheaper! Registration comes with a complete shopping list for building your winter wardrobe and plenty of ideas for how to mix and match your purchases to stay stylish all winter long. I love these GYPO style challenges and they’ve changed the way I shop for clothes!
FOR THE FERMENTED FOODIE WANNABE
Have a friend who just can’t keep quiet about their favorite sauerkraut and kimchi brands? Help them get started fermenting their own veggies with this Fermented Veggies e-book! It breaks fermentation down into simple step-by-step instructions, so it’s perfect for fermentation beginners.
Happy holidays and happy shopping!
