Ok, we’ll be honest and say that this list of gifts for her is really our wishlist. Hint, hint, husbands. Our intention is that this list serves as something to help you shop for your mom, mother in law, sister, etc, but also maybe gives you a few ideas of something to add to your list. Anyone else’s mind go blank when someone asks what you want?
Brittany’s Gift Wishlist
I’ve wanted one of these little face scrubbers for awhile but could never justify the cost. I’m hoping for a good Black Friday sale!
Ok, so are you Team LC or Team Kristin? (Gold star if you understand that reference). I’ve actually loved Lauren Conrad’s line at Kohl’s and since I’ve been working all pandemic on building my comfy clothes wardrobe, I think I need this adorable set (bottoms, top) to add to my collection.
I’ve been using my current yoga mat since college (I know) and I really love the pattern of this one.
I am obsessed with this setting spray. It’s not oily and I put it on after my makeup, it’s lightweight and smells good.
I got these name bracelets of each of kids’ names and I love them so much.
This blanket is so, so soft and really reasonably priced!
I’ve wanted this cookbook for awhile.
23andMe mostly because I want to do my part to catch any serial killers out there.
I hate vacuuming and really want a robot vacuum.
My bathtub tray is my most favorite bath accessory.
This air fryer is also a toaster oven and can fit a whole 12 in pizza! If you’ve got the counter space, I highly recommend.
Heather’s Gift Wishlist
Thinking of gifts this year was hard. Gifts are definitely my love language, but something about this year made it hard. I love stuff (I’m really trying to break my consumerist habits), but I’ve really been enjoying experiential gifts lately, and those are harder to do right now.
To be completely honest, nothing would make me happier than to see Mitch McConnell lose his majority seat. I know donating to a charity in someone’s name seems trite, but I really would love a donation in my name to the Get Mitch Or Die Trying or the Every Last Vote fundraisers. These are organized through Vote Save America, who have been working tirelessly this entire election cycle to put donation dollars where they can make the biggest impact, and right now that’s in the Georgia run-off election. All I want for Christmas if for the Biden administration to have control of Congress. That’s definitely going to be a new Christmas bop.
Okay, okay, I know that may not be just the right thing for everyone on your list, so don’t worry, I’ve got a few other ideas.
This sweatshirt from Aerie is the softest thing I’ve ever felt. There are matching sweatpants, which I stopped myself from getting. I’m pretty sure I’d never change out of that ensemble if I had it, so I had to cut myself off. Long enough to wear with leggings, gorgeous colors- it’s perfect.
We’ve sang the praises of these J. Crew slippers before, but they really are great. The perfect price point, and who doesn’t need a pair of slippers?
I’ve used this tray for so many parties, and even just for Snack Dinners at home all year. I think this would be the cutest gift to leave on someone’s doorstep! Hear me out- what if you arranged a cute little charcuterie board and leave a bottle of wine before a Zoom happy hour or celebration? They get a great snack to enjoy, and a beautiful tray to keep for later!
If you’ve got a cook on your list, this Dutch oven is my favorite. I got it last year for Christmas, and the 6 quart is the perfect size for all of the winter soups and stews. You can make so many quick one pot meals in it, and it cleans up so easily. The price point is perfect, and it works just as well as it’s brand name counterpart that cost three times as much.
Got a spiked seltzer lover on your list? This BruMate Can Cooler is the perfect size for a White Claw or Truly, so your drink stays ice cold. It come is 32 different colors and patterns. There are even other sizes and cups for everyone’s favorite beverage.
My skin and lips get insanely dry in the winter, and this Tatcha Lip Mask has helped my cracked, dry lips so much. It comes with a little spatula applicator so it feels extra fancy.
I just replaced my decade old curling iron with this T3 Twirl 1.25 Inch Ceramic Curling Iron, and I love it! Costco has an insane deal, making it about half the price anywhere else. I don’t know if I “pay full price love it”, but if you have a Costco membership, or know someone who does, this deal is totally worth it.
One thing I have been wanting is a silk pillowcase. Sounds bougie and ridiculous, but it’s supposed to be better for your skin and hair. After this year, my skin and hair need all the help they can get. These ones are way budget friendly and have amazing reviews.
