I don’t know about you, but I am particularly excited for the holidays this year. Last year we were in the process of moving (in fact, it was one year ago today that we moved all our stuff to our new-to-us house in a new town), so it was all a bit crazy. This year, it’s on. I personally LOVE a gift guide and always get inspired, so I’ll be rolling out a few over the next week. This week I’m sharing a Holiday Gift Guide for your favorite ladies (let’s start with the best category and the most fun to shop for!). Let’s get into it.

The Coziest Blanket
I’ve blathered on about my Barefoot Dreams cardigan, but it is truly something I wear EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. For the lady who already has the cardigan, or is looking for something for the home, you cannot go wrong with this blanket made from the same ultra-cozy material.
Shearling seems to be trending big time and I personally am loving it. The long jacket is super-dreamy, but the shorter one is more affordable depending on how much you want to splurge on your favorite gal.
I have (or had…it was broken and I am dying to replace it!) one of these bracelets and it is the perfect accessory for layering bracelets with and it goes with everything. Mine is in gold-fill and the finish really lasts versus gold-plated jewelry. Order this ASAP because custom items and items from Etsy sellers require more lead time than Nordstrom, Amazon, etc.
Are you sensing a theme to my gift guide? If you guessed cozy, you’re right. All my favorite ladies LOVE to be cozy. Is it just me who changes into comfy clothes immediately when I get home, including warm slippers like these? I have the top pair in gray (although I would rather have that cute pink) and I just ordered the other pair. If you need a little more arch support, like I do, I suggest the second pair, but both are great picks.
Funny desk sign
I saw a similar sign in a local shop and it just cracked me up. This would be really fun on someone’s desk-assuming they work with people who have a sense of humor…
Super comfy sweatpants
American Eagle makes the BEST sweatpants. I have a pair that I call my “sweggings” because they’re made of the coziest sweater material. Just the other night my daughter was rubbing her face against my pants because they were so soft 🙂 . Seriously, they’re the best.
Nature 2019 calendar
This calendar is just stunning and would fit in any decor. I love the three-dimensional feel to it and who doesn’t need a calendar for the new year?
I’m a bit of a perfume junky, although I have trouble committing. This trial set would be perfect for someone like me who likes a little of everything. Replica makes such great scents-I particularly love Beach Walk, Sailing Day, and By The Fireplace (and In the Forest, which isn’t included here).
Clearly, I’m having a shearling problem right now, but I’ve seen this style of bootie a lot lately and I love that it is a twist on the popular Uggs, but with a more pulled-together style that looks great with jeans.
Velvet party top
We don’t do a lot of dressy holiday parties, but this velvet top would be perfect paired with jeans for a night out or for a more casual holiday party (or take it more formal with a black pencil skirt). Velvet is one of my favorite fabrics, but I avoid wearing it because my husband can’t stand the feel of it and will sit far away from me…booo! How can someone hate velvet?! Wear this vicariously for me or gift it to your bestie.
Zella high-waist leggings
These are for the lady in your life who loves to lounge and/or hit the gym because they’re perfect for both. You just can’t go wrong with these (the thousands of 5 star reviews agree with me!).
That’s a wrap for my Holiday Gift Guide for your Favorite Ladies. I plan to roll out gifts for foodies, maybe something for guys (although they’re the WORST to shop for), and definitely something for little kiddos. Is there anything else you’d like to see? Gifts for teachers/co-workers?? Just leave a comment or shoot me a message.
