She's likely the one doing all the holiday shopping for everyone... but who's shopping for her?
Here are 17 gift ideas for the fashion forward, fun-loving, beauty crazed woman in your life.
Printing made easy
One of my favorite gifts for crafty moms... the Kodak Dock Plus Photo Printer. The handy concoction lets you print 4x6 pics instantly from your phone. Using a Bluetooth connection, you’ll get flawless results; each photo comes out fingerprint proof and water-resistant. (You can even edit and add borders with the free Kodak app.) Also from Kodak, the Step Wireless Mobile Mini Printer. This little guy connects to smartphones and tables and allows you to print pics instantly- but unlike the 4x6 option, you’ll get adorable, small, and sticky 2x3 photos. Special technology omits pricy ink cartridges.
Gift your home
My favorite pick for custom home gifts is Whiskey Barrel Wall Hooks from Holtz Leather. Made from weathered wood of a Jack Daniel’s whiskey barrel, these unique, multi-purpose hangers can be personalized with names (I got one for each of my sons). Gorgeous and practical, you’ll love the look of this functional home accent.
With many portable Bluetooth speakers on the market, the Sonos Roam is the best in sound and sophistication. The Roam plays up to 10 hours on a full battery life. Waterproof and dustproof flaunting A-list sound, the compact music machine easily connects to WIFI and Bluetooth and is great for backyard entertaining and travel.
Curl to perfection
I rarely rave to ad nauseam about beauty products but I have the one thing you absolutely need to achieve the perfect curl: the Chi Lava Spin n Curl. Yes, there are a handful of spinning curlers on the market, but this is the BEST and I’ll never use a cliché curler again. Create flawless curls and waves at the push of a button with this automatic beauty tool. Sourced from volcanic lava combined with CHI ceramic, the spinner creates bouncy, sleek results without the damaging effects of high-heat. Hair is drawn into the heat-isolating curl chamber and timed to create lively, shiny curls and waves every time! The digital temperature display offers easily adjustable temperature settings and a selection of preset temperature settings for each hair texture, creating a customizable styling experience. To shop my other favorite Chi products, check out the ceramic iron and Chi Infra Trio Kit.
Dye at home
Ditch the pricey beauty salon and become your own stylist. Madison Reed is a one-stop shop for quality hair color and haircare. Did you know the hair color of the year is “expensive brown?” Well, Madison Reed gave me the scoop on trending colors to achieve the lovely look. To score golden, neutral or smoky brown, check out their offerings: Tuscany Brown, Zocca Brown, Avella Light Brown and Veneto Light Brown. All Madison Reedproducts are 8-free, meaning there’s no ammonia, parabens, resorcinol, PPD, phthalates, gluten, SLS, or titanium dioxide. Infused to nourish and provide you with optimal results, you can also shop their lineup of Color Reviving Gloss, Shampoo, Conditioner, and Color Therapy.
The best in bling
Give the gift of meaningful jewelry. Shane Co just released a gorgeous line of birthstone options and they’re lovely. If you scroll to the bottom of this page, you can see the array of stones available (I got a stunning opal necklace with my October birthstone). With many affordable options ranging necklaces, earrings and more, any woman would appreciate such a personal and fashionable statement piece.
Get inspired and empowered
Mantraband has the best in bracelets with lovely sayings and powerful words, but what’s trending for this season is their line of band rings. Why? Because they’re totally functional and can be word as a necklace (comes with a chain) or a finger ring. Choose between gold, silver, or rose with sayings such as: believe, fearless and breathe.
Accessorize with purpose
One of my favorite accessories for travel buffs are bracelets and belts from SoFree Creations. They’re beautifully designed with a secret zipper enclosure for money, keys and credit cards. Makes for hands-free exercise or outings!
Travel in style
The Kalencom Uptown backpack is affordable, functional, and fashionable for mom. The modern design flaunts tons of pockets for vast storage, and it’s made from wipeable material. Loaded with padded backpack straps, easy grab handles, and a large changing mat for babies. Click here to shop and use code NADINE30 for 30% off all bags.
The new Ollie Gray OG Sneakers are great for on-the-go mamas. They’re ultra-flexible and have a toggle instead of lacing which makes them easier to put on and off. Designed to reduce backpain, the pretty-in-pink sneaker will become your everyday staple.
Work in comfort
WorkRobe speaks my language... the soft and stylish corporate loungewear is ideal for WAHMs and Zoom calls. Comfy and cozy like a traditional robe that oozes sophistication, WorkRobe is changing the way women dress for work. The Button Down version features a polished collared look for that put-together appearance while still managing to serve up all-day comfort. There’s also a Blouse version constructed of French terry fabric for quick and easy presentability after a shower or workout.
Twin with the fam
For the best in family PJs, shop LazyOne. Score an Insta-worthy pic with their array of onesies for mom, dad, kids, and pets. With tons of adorable options to choose from, this high-quality line of pajamas is comfortable and festive. My fave for the holidays is the Moose Caboose collection.
Lounge in style
Onepiece is my latest obsession. The website is packed with a fashionable selection of cute jumpsuits, like the original black, a classic velvet, the new puppy green, and the alpine onesie. Made super comfortable for hanging at home or going out, this trendy winter apparel is a must have for the season and going into 2022.
The Kailu Silk - Open Road Portable Throw makes stargazing, movie nights and travel more luxurious. The throw has an ultra-smooth feel and temperature-regulating features that keep you comfortable indoors and out. It also comes with a carry bag and pure silk eye mask.
The LUFTQI Cube is a portable air purifier and air cleaner for allergens, dust, pollen and more. Built compact for small spaces and cars, the filterless Cube is said to outperform HEPA air purifiers on the market. To maintain, all you need to do is rinse & wash the metal mesh every two weeks.
Custom create home décor
Canvas Discount is your one-stop-shop for premium wall art. Choose between canvas prints, acrylic prints, and metal prints... all high quality and arrive ready to hang. The best part: the site’s affordable prices. You can also order personalized home décor like photo pillows, blankets, and puzzles.
Indulge in experience
Around the country, Broadway is back. If all else fails, get the woman in your life dinner and a show, supporting the talented casts that aim to provide you with a few hours of entertainment. We just saw Mean Girls at ASU Gammage and it was fantastic. There’s nothing better than the gift of experience.
