Holiday Gift Guide: Friends & Family

Installment 2:  The lovely ladies.
Moms, sisters, friends, brothers' girlfriends, co-workers, and extended family.
Get them something personal and unique this year.
They deserve it!

For the cocktail enthusiast...
They will not only use this (and probably make you a drink),
but this book will also look fab on display.

Or cordials?
~$7 per bottle

Pair with a bottle of her favorite vino for the perfect gift.

For your collegiate comrade...
A new tote to haul her goods to class is always appreciated.

For the jet-setter...
How about a fun passport holder?

organized while on-the-go?

For the snow bunny...
How adorable is this bowtie beanie?

For the eco-minded woman...
Your green friend will be tickled pink knowing you supported a local, eco-minded business by purchasing one of these soy candles.  With over 20 scents to select from, you'll be sure to find a holiday aroma to make her nose happy,
such as Apple Spice or Cedar & Pine.

For the jewelry guru...
These dainty little 14k gold rings are so cute!
I especially "heart" the hearts.

For the skin-conscious...
Save your mom's skin from the brisk winter winds
with the luxurious Creme de Corps collection from Kiehl's.

Note:  Sephora also carries a shit ton of fabulous gift sets this time of year.
You'd be sure to find something amazing and in your price range!

For the cultured contessa...
I've been eyeing up tickets to a musical to give to my mom for an upcoming girls night out on the town.
And nothing says "fun" like a boy and his unexpected love for dance...

For the lady who lunches...
Buy her a gift certificate to a new hip restaurant in town,
and place it in this fun work-ready lunch bag.
(And don't forget to schedule a lunch date with her in the new year!)
{HERE} via CB2

Hope that sparks some ideas for you, Mrs. Clauses.
(I know I'd be happy to receive any of these fun treats!)
