Holiday Gift Guide : Part 5

Happy Friday! It’s gift guide day. I can’t tell you how much fun I’ve had compiling this series. I hope it has been helpful in shopping for your loved ones. Today we have gifts for kids, creatives, beauty lovers, the fitness inspired, and a bunch of budget gift options under $30! Click through to check them out. Cheers to the upcoming weekend! I hope you all get to partake in some festive holiday activities. 

To shop, click directly on each item, or use the numbered products at the bottom of each collage.

01: balance bike // 02: pile jacket // 03: ezpz feeding mat // 04: the pop pacifier // 05: pom pom canvas bin // 06: arctic rocker // 07: the nutcracker board book // 08: lovevery play gym // 09: warm lined boots // 10: wood stacking toy // 11: chenille blanket // 12: wooden espresso machine // 13: sloth stuffed animal // 14: festive llama pajamas

Jacqueline compiled the kids roundup, shown above… as a mom- she knows best! I can’t get over all of these cute items for the littles. That tiny espresso maker toy is probably the cutest thing I’ve seen all season. Ha!

01: brass scissors // 02: scarf knitting kit // 03: sketch pad // 04: watercolor paint cup // 05: candle making kit // 06: micron pens // 07: watercolor palette // 08: journal // 09: terrarium

As a creative, I always try to make time for “fun projects” outside of my normal creative routine. I love candle making, painting, sketching, knitting, and other sorts of mindless projects that fuel my creative energy in a unique way. It’s important to flex those muscles!

01: dyson hairdryer set with ouai products // 02: armani lipstick (my FAVORITE!) // 03: drybar heated straightening brush // 04: charcoal cleansing wipes // 05: spa bathrobe // 06: marc jacobs bronzer // 07: cosmetic case // 08: la mer miracle set // 09: silk pillowcase // 10: cosmetic bag // 11: eye gels // 12: nail polish set // 13: damage repair hair oil

I’ll admit- I’m a beauty junkie. Although I prefer natural makeup, I love trying new products! I have the Dyson hairdryer (#1), which doesn’t disappoint. I get a million messages about my lipstick and I’m always wearing #2. It’s the best! It feels like chapstick. Basically, I’ve tried most of these items and you can’t go wrong.

01: beanie // 02: fitbit smart scale // 03: athletic jacket // 04: vitamix blender // 05: clean eating cookbook // 06: yoga mat // 07: running shoes // 08: athletic leggings // 09: water bottle // 10: smart jump rope // 11: gym bag // 12: sports bra // 13: dry shampoo // 14: running gloves

My plan (like every January) is to be healthier and start exercising more regularly. Haha! I’m thinking if I stock up on fitness gear, I’ll have to put in the effort to actually use it. That’s my excuse for buying some items from the above collage, anyway.

01: round wooden tray // 02: etched aluminum vase // 03: homebody book // 04: heathered socks // 05: wool and cashmere shampoo // 06: bamboo bottle opener // 07: set of four turkish hand towels // 08: set of four wicker coasters // 09: boy smells cedar stack candle // 10: six foot usb cable charger // 11: tortoiseshell statement earrings // 12: pressed glass photo frame // 13: tassel key chain // 14: sherpa fleece blanket

Lastly, crowd pleasing gifts under $30! Those turkish towels (#7) are calling my name… and so is that big cozy fleece blanket (#14). I couldn’t totally snuggle up on the sofa and binge some Netflix this winter under that thing.

I hope you all have an amazing weekend! I’m planning to make some Christmas cookies from my cookie swap, and take it easy after a crazy week of moving.

  1. Happy Friday! Great picks. That kiddo espresso machine is hilarious! I probably need to give that Laundress cashmere wash a try (so many sweaters!). And those Boy Smells people are really getting me with their marketing. Have a relaxing weekend! I think I’ve got a couple of those cookie recipes on my list this weekend too.

    1. Thanks Peggi! Isn’t that thing cute?! I swear by Laundress products… AND the boy smells candles. I can’t get enough and their marketing is pretty fun. Hope you had an amazing weekend! Did you make any cookies? :)
