In a major rush to get a gift but want it to impress? I got you covered, girl. The genius gift ideas in this holiday gift guide are just that–genius. From top notch products we would use everyday but would rarely buy for ourselves to the sample sets that allow us to try the products everyone raged about this year, there’s something here for every woman in your life. And, the best part? Nothing is over $40.
10 Genius Gift Ideas:
1. S’well water bottle ($35)
S’well bottles combine fashion and function. They keep cold beverages cold for 24 hours and hot beverages hot for 12 hours. And, the bottles come in some jazzy designs. Would you expect anything less than fabulous from a woman-owned company? I use mine EVERY DAY.
2. Pat McGrath mini lipstick trio ($25)
Pat McGrath is one of the most influential makeup artists in the world. This set provides the perfect opportunity to try 3 of her top selling lipstick colors.
3. Google Home Mini (on sale $29)
Been thinking about getting a smart speaker? This is the one. It’s compact but powerful. With a simple, “Hey Google,” you can have hands-free help in any room.
4. Perfume sampler ($25)
Don’t know her favorite scent? No problem. This Sephora sample set includes 7 of its most popular fragrances.
5. Urban Decay mini 24/7 eye pencil set ($29)
Do her a favor and gift her these 5 travel-sized eye pencils. They’re the softest, smoothest eye pencils ever. They glide on and blend like a dream. Don’t ask me how many I own.
6. Day Designer daily planner ($14.99)
2019 plans have to be made! And, Day Designer makes the most user-friendly, practical, stylish daily planner I’ve ever used. This particular style, Day Designer for Blue Sky, makes the Day Designer system available for under $15 at Target. I already got mine. What are you waiting for?
7. Moleskine notebook ($19.95)
Know a notebook/journal snob, someone who desires great paper quality and little ink bleed-through on their pages? Impress her with one of these.
8. Candle ($12 plus 30% off right now)
If you haven’t smelled the Mini Capri Blue Volcano candle yet, do yourself a favor and get it for yourself. It’ll have your room smelling like a tropical paradise.
For that spirited friend who enjoys sipping on an aged rum or cognac from time to time, give her a glass with her initial on it.
Want to know what it feels like to walk on clouds? Slip your feet into these. I finally replaced my 4-year old pair from J.Crew with this J.Crew Factory version of the popular style. They’re perfect. P.S.: I get them one size larger (i.e. I wear a size 8 but wear a 9 in these).
