Gifts for Her
Beyond Yoga Caught in the Midi High Waisted Leggings – I got these in a StitchFix box right after I had Isabelle and I am absolutely, positively infatuated with them. The fact that they’re high waisted means no muffin top and everything looks smooth and put together. I typically only wear leggings around the house, but I will totally wear these for errands like the grocery store, taking the boys to swim lessons, etc. They are as soft as butter and I feel so good wearing them.
Lisa Leonard Designs – If the woman you are buying for has kids, this jewelry would make a wonderful gift. Choose from necklaces, rings, and bracelets that feature names, initials, birthstones, and any combination of the three.
Vera Wang Signature Perfume – My mom bought this for me not long after I graduated from college, and it remains my very favorite scent – not overpowering at all, subtle and clean-smelling; I get compliments any time I wear it.
Kate Spade Stud Earrings – My sister gifted me with these earrings for my birthday last year and they are the perfect pair of everyday earrings. I don’t wear much jewelry, but they are just enough to look totally put together when I leave the house. They’re available in a lot of different colors!
Fitbit Alta – The perfect option for tracking steps, sleep, workouts, and more. If someone doesn’t want a full-blown smartwatch, these is a great, slim option.
Bombas Socks – These are the very best socks I’ve ever owned. They are incredibly soft, but not too thick, not too thin, absolutely perfect. Plus, for every pair that you buy, they donate another pair to a homeless shelter.
Maui Jim Baby Beach Sunglasses – My husband got these for me last Christmas and I adore them. He got me a pair of Maui Jim’s for a birthday six years ago, and they’re still going strong, but I had been wanting a pair of aviator sunglasses. The problem is that I have such a small face that most of them just look ridiculous on me. This “baby beach” model is perfect for small faces, and I love how light they feel on my face!
Apple Watch – I’ve been waffling on getting an Apple Watch for months; I think it would be wonderfully convenient to be able to quickly see texts and calls that are coming in since I often don’t have my phone on me when I’m playing with the kids.
Henri Bendel Uptown Wrist Wallet – I love this all-in-one wallet (it can even hold an iPhone X and a tube of lipstick!) that you could easily throw in your purse or diaper bag without needing to lug around multiple bags.
Pretty Apron – If the gal on your list spends a lot of time in the kitchen, a beautiful apron makes a wonderful gift. When it comes to pretty aprons, no one does it better than Anthropologie – they have so many gorgeous options to choose from!
Skinnytees – I got one of these in a Christmas gift exchange from my aunt a few years ago and recently started wearing it regularly, then realized it was basically the best layering tank EVER. It totally stays put, does not ride up at all, smooths everything out… I’m obsessed and bought a few different colors.
Vera Bradley Weekender Travel Bag – My mom bought this for me before I had Joseph, to pack for the hospital, and it’s by far my favorite overnight bag. I used it again when I had Dominic and Isabelle, and also for an overnight when my husband and I went to a wedding in Baltimore. It’s the perfect size for a couple of days away with tons of pockets inside and out for organization.
Barefoot Dreams Cardigan – Another gift I received last year or the year before and it is SO COZY. Honestly, the softest cardigan I have ever owned, it makes me want to turn on the fireplace, curl up in a ball and take a nap.
Tieks – Ahhhh Tieks! I own one pair of these (Wild Copper) and they are the most versatile shoe in my closet. They go with everything, are super comfortable, and I get compliments on them every single time I wear them. They’re a splurge, but I think they’re totally worth it!
ThirdLove Bras – I first heard of these a couple of years ago and have been wanting to try them, then a coupon showed up in the mail so I finally tried a few. They are AMAZING. The fit is fantastic and they are so comfortable.
Sorel Wedge Booties – I am in LOVE with these boots. I asked for a Zappos gift card last Christmas to put towards them because I had been eyeing them for awhile. I desperately wanted a shoe with some height but that had a sole safe enough to still walk around on snowy/slushy sidewalks and parking lots. These are quite literally perfect. The wedge is extremely comfortable and doesn’t even feel like I’m wearing a heel and the tread on the bottom makes me feel totally comfortable walking outside without fear of slipping and falling. These used to be named “Lea” and are now rebranded as “Joan of Arctic II” waterproof wedge booties … even more colors are available on Zappos.
Ugg Duffield Robe – Another gift from last Christmas that I LOVE. I went through two robes previously when each of the boys were born; the first one was too long for 5’1 me (tripping hazard on the steps) and the other was too thin and not warm enough. This one is a perfect length, the inside is fleece and the outside is super soft sweatshirt material.
TELL ME! What would you add to this list? Anything you’re secretly wishing for? I’m always looking for new ideas!
