What To Get A Woman This Christmas
What To Get A Woman This Christmas:
It could be your wife, girlfriend, best friend, sister, hip mother, maybe even daughter. It can be so confusing to figure out what a woman wants, but trust me, DON’T GET HER CLOTHES. Or if you do, at least make sure there’s a gift receipt. Here are some safer options that any woman will love. Just make sure she doesn’t have it already:
1. Michael Kors Anything
Honestly, one of my biggest regrets from my last trip to Italy was not snatching one of these gorgeous bags while they were on sale. They’re the perfect size, painfully trendy, and there’s a color to match any outfit or personality. I’m obsessed with the black and yellow ones, but blue and red look so good, too – You can’t go wrong! Even if you want to go for a bigger bag, a tiny card holder, a wallet, a watch – Michael Kors will always be a safe bet this Christmas season.
2. Instax Mini8
Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Camera BLUE + Accessory kit for Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Camera Includes Instant camera + Fuji Instax Film 10 PK + Instax Case + instax Album + Sorted lens & Frames + MORE
I bought Instax Mini 8 cameras for my nieces last Christmas and I’m still jealous over my own gifts! These are so cute and fun for all ages. There are so many possibilities. Different films, different filters, and they create amazing souvenirs and memorabilia that last a lifetime. In a world of Instagram and Snapchat, it’s so nice to have a tangible photo that won’t expire in 24 hours!
3. MVMT watches
At first I was going to simply say watches, but the more I look through collections the more in love I fall with MVMT. Of course you can go with any brand of watch, but there’s something about the MVMT collections in both men and women’s that look so much more expensive than they really are, and I’m down for that. I especially love their dark faces with gold bands.
4. Jo Malone Candles
A home can never have too many candles, and Jo Malone candles are basically the antithesis of saying, “I respect you as a classy boss lady and I know not just any candle will do.” Just putting the candle on your shelf screams class, and they smell amazing as a bonus. This one is pretty low commitment, so it’s always a safe bet since they run from expensive to cheap. Also, I know the “Bougie Parfumée” on the label means “scented candle,” but I still say “boujee parfume” in my head.
5. Adidas Sweatshirts
Okay, I know I said don’t buy her clothes. But maybe you want to make sure she’s warm. Well, if you have to get her clothes, get her the safest, most fail-proof clothes you can get her. Adidas is a classic brand, which means whether she’s 15 or 45 she can still pull off an Adidas sweatshirt on her days off. Not only will she be pulling it off, but she’ll be trendy and stylish like nobody’s business. This is one Christmas present you won’t find buried in the depths of her closet as soon as she’s worn it once. Just make sure the size is right!
6. Starbucks Tumbler
I’m doing my best to help you here, but let’s be honest. There are at least a few women in your life that would be overjoyed if you simply showered them with Starbucks. Starbucks gift cards, Starbucks tumblers, Starbucks coffee beans, Starbucks mugs. At a certain point it hardly matters What you get them from Starbucks, as long as they can keep consuming Starbucks. But hey, that doesn’t just go for women, that goes for basically anyone over the age of 15 these days. I am so so lucky to get these adorable Christmas limited edition items in Korean stores. What do you have in the Starbucks where you’re from this Christmas?
I have been obsessed with this Marshall bluetooth speaker in cream for years now. Why don’t I own it yet?! The price is reasonable, the sound quality upsettingly wonderful, and the beautiful cream and gold creates such a classic aesthetic to any room. Take a look at it’s larger version in the cafe I visited in Seoul last Saturday.
Too beautiful. And no cords!
8. Naked Palettes
Entering the realm of make up can be a hard thing when gifting for a woman, but if you want a safe bet Naked palettes from Urban Decay look good on Everyone. The risk is that she already has it, but luckily the Naked palettes have a whole series, so you just need to figure out which one she probably doesn’t have.
9. Heart Waffle Maker
If you’ve ever fallen down a rabbit hole of Facebook videos or “Tasty” videos, you’ve probably realized by now that there’s a gaping empty hole in your life. A hole that only a waffle maker can fill. Waffles are delicious, and you basically just can’t make them without a good waffle maker. But why stop there? Protein waffles, waffle pizza, waffle cheeseburgers, waffle mac n cheese, waffle cinnamon buns. My stomach’s aching just thinking about the possibilities. As long as we’ve established the necessity of a waffle maker, make sure she knows how special she is to you, by getting her the cutest waffle maker around, and giving her a big ol’ piece of your heart. D’aww.
10. Faux Fur Scarf
YOUR SMILE – Premium Solid Color Long Rectangle Faux Fur Warm Soft Furry Wrap Around Loophole Scarf (Brown / Fur)
The last item to keep your Lady Boss warm this winter is a faux fur scarf. The best picture I found was this ridiculously expensive one, but the link goes to an almost identical one for a fraction of the price. These scarfs are EVERYWHERE in Seoul, and with good reason. They’ll look good over sweaters, coats, or shirts, and in Seoul winter which is very cold but stubbornly fashionable, they’ll protect your freezing neck when you insist on wearing cute wool coats instead of something with a hood. Just be careful with the colors. Black, tan, or gray are your best bets if you want her to actually wear it.
So there you have it. My top 10 will-definitely-love gifts to give the woman in your life this holiday season. I hope it helped! If you have more people in your gift list, I’m working as fast as I can to bring more soon. What to give men, teens, foodies, photographers. So sign up for my e-mail list, and stay tuned.
