Something you should know about me is that I’m a HORRIBLE gift giver. Terrible. Maybe because I don’t really care about receiving gifts. My love languages include acts of service and words of affirmation. Gifts is at the bottom of the list. I think it’s because I’m an only child and if I want something enough, I’ll make it happen. I don’t expect someone to purchase it for me. Which makes my husband super annoyed. Like recently I wanted a Nespresso machine when I got back from my trip to Montreal and the next day I had already purchased one and put it in our kitchen. My husband came home that evening frustrated since he was planning to surprise me with one.

The moral of the story is I’m not very creative with gifts since I don’t really care about them. BUT I can definitely think of things that I already own or that I know I need to get my hands on at some point. And in case you missed it, I just recently added a Holiday Gift Guide tab to my blog with all sorts of those types of items! Whether you’re looking for gifts for your husband or your best friend or the person who loves to cook or wear a sh*t ton of makeup or spend their time in the gym…I got yo’ back! And today I’m here to show you some of my favorites from that list along with a few other ideas!

And don’t forget, next week is THE BEST time to get your holiday shopping done with Black Friday (Nov 23rd) and Cyber Monday (Nov 26th) deals! I’ll be sharing some Black Friday sales here on the blog next week so stay tuned for that! And in the meantime, here is a little breakdown of some of my favorite gifts of the season. You can hover your mouse over each item and click it to be brought directly to the product!

Now let’s walk through a couple of these items that are my absolute favorites!

#3 – Pet Bucket Booster Pet Seat – This seat gives you the ability to give your pet a comfy seat in the car that is seat belted in and has a harness to keep them in place. I’ve always wanted to get one of these for Jackson for safety purposes but I keep forgetting. I think this would be the perfect gift for a pet lover in your life that tends to put off those much needed items!

#6 – Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer – I’ve been thinking about getting this hair dryer for a while now but I wasn’t sure if it was worth the money. But after trying it out at my hair salon, I have fallen in love. This is definitely an amazing gift for someone since it’s an item they might not purchase for themselves.

#7 – DERMAFLASH 2.0 Facial Exfoliating Device – If your friend is obsessed with all things skincare, this is such a cool item that I’m sure they would love! This device works similar to dermaplane – it removes dead skin cells, built-up debris and peach fuzz. Not only does this brighten up the skin and give it a beautiful glow, but it enhances the power of skincare products by erasing the barrier to penetration. Better absorption of products means better results!

#11 – Colleen Rothschild Intense Hydrating Mask – I’ve wanted to try this product out every since I saw it on Kerrently’s IG page. I’ve heard these products are fantastic and this mask can be worn for hours which means it’s a great hydrating barrier overnight or even while traveling!

#19 – UGG Waterproof Wedge Boot – If you have a shoe lover in your life, these boots are the perfect mix of style and function, especially come winter time. They are waterproof with a wool lining to keep the feet super warm, but they also come with a 3 1/2 inch heel height to give a little extra length with any look!

But if none of these gifts suit your fancy, not to worry, here’s more of my favorites! And you can regularly check my Holiday Gift Guide tab as I add more ideas to it weekly! If you are for anything in particular that you aren’t seeing here or need a little extra help shopping, just let me know and I’ll try to come up with even more ideas based on those questions! Hope all this helps you out this holiday season!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Great guide! How about your silicone wedding band/ring?? Great for travel and workout when the big diamonds aren’t necessary.
