In case you still haven’t finished your holiday shopping and need some ideas for gift ideas, here’s a gift guide for the ladies in your life. I’ve picked out some items I think would be great for your mom, aunt, or BFF. This year there has brought us some of the best sets I’ve seen to date. They are so good, many of them are already sold out. As of today, I’ll be sharing some things you can still get today, but if you see something you like, I’d recommend you get it fast. There are a number of things I had in my shopping cart over the last week that disappeared before I could check out due to them selling out.
A soft simple scarf (1) is my Number 1 no-fail holiday gift idea and you can find scarves almost anywhere in stores and online at all price points. My favorites colors to give include ivory or black because they will go with everything, but for those who like color, there are still a wide range of stunning shades and patterns to pick from.
For the nails, you can never go wrong with luxury nail polishes like Chanel or Dior – the formula is phenomenal, colors are rich and a nice luxury polish is sure to please. Chanel has their Les Rouge Culte Collection (2) on Chanel.com which has three beautiful reds (do note that polishes ship ground). MAC Cosmetics has three reds in their Red Red Red Collection (9) called Red, Red, Red, Rouge Combustion and Impassioned.
A luxurious hand cream like Aerin Beauty Rose Hand & Body Cream (4) or Tatcha Indigo Travel Duo are affordable options. Hand and nail care sets are also another good option for those who want to be able to do their own nails at home.
The Diptyque Holiday 5 Piece Coffret (5) has been selling out very quickly. You can still find it online at Saks Fifth Avenue, Beautyhabit and Diptyque. I ordered a few of these sets as gifts. They are boxed beautifully and the presentation is quite stunning. Nordstrom has the exclusive on the luxurious 10 Piece Set. For other brands, Jo Malone, Henri Bendel and Byredo also have lovely sets this year.
Philosophy Amazing Grace is one of my favorite feminine scents. The Rollerball (6) and Bath and Shower Gel (7) have this girly pink tint to them. You can find a number of good Philosophy Gift Sets this time of year. Dolce & Gabbana Dolce (3) is another beautiful feminine scent. It’s a lovely floral that comes in a wide range of sizes. The full sized bottles are capped with a white rose. It looks lovely on the dresser and also smells very good. There are a number of fragrance value sets this year. Rollerballs are good stocking stuffer ideas too.
For the lips, there are so many good lip sets this year. By Terry (8) has a Baume de Rose Collection of 5 minis and it is really quite incredible (review soon). NARS Tech Fashion is another favorite (review here).
Last but not least, a leather zip clutch or pouch is another no-fail idea. Truffle Privacy Clutches (10) come in a wide number of colors and are relatively affordable options for a leather accessory. I ordered multiples of the Nude and Black as gifts this year (see them in action here, here, here and here). You can use them to store makeup or as an on-the-go clutch. more ideas below.
I hope you found some inspiration for gift ideas!
