So you have to picture this. I’m all snuggled up on this rainy day in Connecticut. I’ve got my cozy clothes on, a cup of delicious coffee in one hand and my laptop in the other. I’ve been carefully researching and picking, choosing and linking up all the items that I want to include in my Holiday Gift Guides this year. And, it seems so fitting to blog about gift guides today because we are on the eve of Thanksgiving.
Especially during this time of year, we are all reflecting on what we are thankful for. My kiddos are talking about it in their classrooms, and texts and phone calls are coming in from family and friends. As I look back on 2017, I’m so grateful for many things. My beautiful family, our warm and welcoming home, friendships with new friends, and lifelong girlfriends who I cherish beyond words.
Even though this is one of many gift guides, today, I am blogging about the Holiday Gift Guide: Top Gifts for Her. I’m SO excited to share these gift ideas with you! You guys know how much I love my girlfriends and I’ve found some amazing deals for the special women in our life. These are among the most sought-after gifts with unbeatable deals.
If you are online reading the blog today or tomorrow, don’t hesitate to buy. The Black Friday Sales are already on and a lot of these items will be snapped up quickly and sizes will be limited. If you wait until Friday, you might be able to get a better deal, so it’s up to you. You can browse now and wait to see if there are even deeper savings later.
Just click on the light blue link immediately below each photo to go directly to the retailer. Additional color and size choices can be found on the right side of the retailer’s website. I’ve included items with a wide variety of different price points. I hope you LOVE my gift ideas – Happy shopping!
P.S. get something for you too xoxo
Holiday Gift Guide: Top Gifts for Her
I’m obsessed with my first gift choice. It’s so pretty and so affordable that I bought one for myself. It comes in other colors and every color has a different pattern. Oh and it’s only $13.00!
One size fits all, so this is a no-brainer. I love me a good poncho and this one is timeless and chic and I am digging the boho fringe. Even if this is not your favorite color, click on the link below the photo and see the other colors and patterns that this poncho comes in.
First of all girls, we need to wear more dresses. I’ve been married for 15 years and my husband always gives me the once over when I am wearing a dress. This is one of the most popular dresses available. It looks amazing with ANY shoe in your closet (sneakers, booties, boots,) so you don’t even have to worry about “what shoes should I wear with it.” It comes in six pastel-ish colors. Pink Adobe Heather (pictured) is a great color choice in this dress. I also would pick the Navy India Ink because it’s a nice compromise between blue and grey. If I were you, I’d get two of these dresses. I’m thinking one for you and one for her and you’ll both thank me later.
Here it is the light grey with sneakers, ready to wear!
| Sherpa Cardigan |
How amazing is this cardi? The contrasting ribbed long sleeves and super soft sherpa lining make this a stylish choice. It comes in black and taupe, such a great deal for $28.00 with SAVEBIG15 at checkout.
| Poly Riding Boot |
This is one of the prettiest boots I have ever seen. Definitely on the pricer side, but I’m in love. Comes in different colors in leather and suede. Maybe this is something you treat yourself to and stick it under the tree!
| Women’s Zella Frosty Asymmetrical Zip Pullover |
Flatter her figure with this zip pullover. Available in black, bright blue, and beige. There are many features on this pullover that I like starting with the tall draped asymmetrical zip, the extra long sleeves to cover your hands and the band across the bottom to keep it down over your bum!
| Alfani Turtleneck Poncho Sweater |
This may be one of my all-time favorite gifts. It’s only $29.99 (I know!) and available in many pretty colors (polished beige, autumn moss, banner red, deep black, new wine, purple royale) so you can get two at this ridiculous price. The form fitting sleeves with the button detail make this inexpensive poncho look elegant.
| Patagonia Synchilla Snap-T Fleece Jacket |
This soft fleece jacket is everything. It’s the ideal combination of colors that will work with anything from black yoga pants to your favorite pair of jeans. The details on the collar, pocket and cuffs are so spot on. The snap-t make it a breeze to pull on and off. It comes in white (although this is not bright white) and black. I’m honestly not sure which color I prefer! Available via Urban Outfitters and their Black Friday sale is BUY ONE, GET ONE 50% OFF EVERYTHING.
| Plaid Poncho |
Mad about Plaid? Plaid is always popular during the winter season, however, black and white plaid is HUGE this year! This versatile poncho can be worn with boyfriend jeans and booties or dressed up with black or winter white/cream slacks. I don’t want to distract from your shopping, so make a mental note to come back to click on this link to see my blog post about the trends I am loving with Black and White Holiday Decor.
Hot, hot, hot. I know it might be tricky to buy boots for her, but if she’s family or a close friend, it should be easy to get her shoe size. This is a hot boot right now and comes in several different colors and widths. It even has a size to accommodate wide calf muscles.
