Whether your list is long or short, shopping for gifts during the holidays can feel overwhelming. At least that’s what I’m told. For a shopaholic like myself, its the most thrilling time of the year! So many sales, special offers, online exclusives and in-store promotions can confuse even the savviest of shoppers, but I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite gift ideas for women. All of these items are presents that I would love to unwrap under the tree this year and I’ve included a variety of price points and categories. For all of you ladies with a picky man in your life, I have a male approved gift guide for him! Happy shopping!
Chanel Limited Edition Camelia Peche Blush ($48) Just in time for the holidays, CHANEL released several online exclusive face powders including this beautiful pink, coral blush embossed with a camellia flower design. Don’t wait to order because this limited edition beauty will not last very long. There are also two new illuminating powders with an embossed lion design that have me drooling!
Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer ($399) The ultimate hair tool is the perfect gift for a long-haired gal. This hairdryer cuts your dry time in half, creates smooth frizz-free styles, comes with magnetic attachments and a limited edition case. The sonic system measures temperature 20 times a second to prevent burning hair. There are too many features to name them all but my favorite detail is having the motor in the handle which prevents tangling and accidentally getting your hair sucked in… we’ve all been there!
Tom Ford Soleil Blanc Gift Set ($328) This three-piece set is the perfect gift for the tropical babe who loves feeling like a mermaid. The fragrance transports you to the Mediterranean Sea for an endless summer. This set is limited edition so act quickly! The scent has been so popular it was unavailable for most of the year!
Burberry Beauty Box ($40) This is the perfect stocking stuffing or token of appreciation for a teacher, friend, or colleague. The beauty box is filled with mini sized luxury makeup items including the best-selling fresh glow primer. This gift makes an impression but is still relatively inexpensive! Plus, every woman loves the convenience of small lipsticks to throw in a clutch or handbag. The box makes a great keepsake as well!
Texture Toolkit by DryBar ($175) This kit has everything from clips, styling products and two different tools. DryBar is known for their cheery, bright yellow packaging. If the lady on your list has hair on her head, she is sure to love this great gift! She can straighten, curl, style anyway she needs with convenience. I am in love with DryBar as a company. They have great salons and now you don’t have to leave your house to get the same results!
CHANEL Numeros Rouges Limited Edition Red Lipstick ($37) It’s the perfect little something for that special someone. The perfect, classic red lipstick in a gorgeous limited edition red tube. Every woman wants a piece of CHANEL and this is just the right festive item to add to her collection. Hurry to order because these lipsticks are almost completely sold out in stores. There are four iconic shades to choose from and each one is absolutely beautiful! If you’re interested in more of the holiday collection, I have a video review on my YouTube channel.
Voluspa Bourbon Vanilla Candle ($65) The home fragrance fanatic will love this delicious vanilla candle for two reasons: first of all, it’s made from a coconut wax blend for a clean burn and second, the candle will make a beautiful decoration in the home. After the candle is finished the jar can be re-purposed to hold flowers, makeup brushes, anything you can think of (just check out Pinterest). The scent is soft and lovely.
Delina by Parfums de Marly ($290) It’s hard to choose a fragrance for someone because scent is so personal, which is why people typically buy what they already know. In this case, it’s worth the risk because you will reap the rewards. The Delina fragrance is the only scent I have ever known to be loved by everyone. It is so unique that is captivates you and keeps you wondering how something that smells so wonderful could still feel so foreign… spoiler alert: it’s the lychee. The notes are so balanced and feminine, this gift is sure to be a favorite. Parfums de Marly is a Nordstrom exclusive which means that she won’t be wearing the same fragrance as everyone else… it’s perfect for the woman who has to stand out!
YSL Tuxedo Eyeshadow Palette ($95) This ten shadow palette is perfect for the makeup enthusiast who has it all. It’s smokey and vibrant with gorgeous packaging. She will be able to create lots of date night looks, evening looks, holiday party looks, anything special occasion. It also comes with a brush so it will be convenient for travel. The deep jewel tones are sure to wow her!
Dior Couture Color Wardrobe Eye & Lip Palette ($89) Saving the best for last, this Dior eye and lip palette covers all of the bases. It’s convenient, it’s luxurious and it’s the most beautiful and wearable palette. This is the type of gift that I would never buy for myself but would love to receive as a present. You cannot go wrong with this little Dior beauty. It’s also affordable enough that it won’t break the bank!
