Gift Ideas for Her: My 2017 Christmas Wish List

Gift Ideas for Her: My 2017 Christmas Wish List

So the other day while Todd and I were sitting in our living room, he asked what I wanted for Christmas and I was all, “I have no idea” which is so rare for me! I mean, there’s always, something we girls want, isn’t there? Well after lots of thought and web/social media surfing, I’ve compiled this list so that my loved ones can refer to it for ideas. I also hope to maybe inspire others’ Christmas lists and gift ideas as well! I’m actually surprised with myself in that aside from four items, everything on my “for me” list is beauty-related (hair and makeup). Can I just say, though, that the irony in making holiday wish lists (at least for me) is being excited about the gifts you receive but also being simultaneously low-key bummed about not getting everything on it (hint hint, Husband)?! I mean, I’ve been a good girl this year!


Side Note: These are listed high-to-low, according to price. Some of these picks are kinda pricey so while I would love to have #allthethings, I know expecting them all would be completely unrealistic.

For Me

Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling Wand: Because word on the street is that these are the holy grail of styling wands.

Tory Burch “Minnie” Travel Ballet Flats: Because I hear these are super comfy and high quality. I like the black on black because they’re practical but I wouldn’t be mad one bit if Santa brought me the leopard print ones because they’re so fun. The size guide says these run a little small so a size 9.5 should work for me.

Olivia Burton English Garden Mesh Strap Watch, 38mm: Because I have a thing for watches and this one is just so pretty!

FHI Brands Platform Tourmaline Ceramic Professional Hair Styling Iron, 1 1/4-Inch: Because my flat iron sucks and my bestie loves this one.

Old Navy Frost Free Jacket: Because my old puffer jacket is well, old. Size L (because I have long arms) in Winter’s Day.

Bobbi Brown Mini Lip Gloss Set: Because I love Bobbi Brown lip gloss and these colors are so pretty!

beautyblender all.about.face kit: Because I need more sponges and Meg O says these are the best (and I pretty much believe everything she says).

Wanted Babe Lace-Up Oxfords Women’s Shoes: Because I’m mildly obsessed with oxfords and I think these will get a lot of use in the near future. I used the black patent ones for my images but I think I like the Cognac ones the best. The black patent are cool, too, though. The reviews say these run small so I guess I would need a size 10.

Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray: Because I gave birth (without medication) after spraying this on my face and my makeup didn’t budge. I also took maternity photos in literal 106* heat and my makeup stayed on. Oh, and because I’m running out.

Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duo: Because Jenise uses this and her highlight looked amazing when I saw her. Rosy Glow.

Tarte Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Contour Concealer: Because my dark undereye circle game is strong and I hear this is a holy grail concealer. Medium.

Wet Brush EPIC Professional Deluxe Detangler: Because this has been recommended to me so many times and I hope it will work well on my oldest’s tender head (even though I totally plan to use it for myself, too).

ESARORA Makeup Brush Cleaning Mat and 28 Holes Brush Drying Tower Set: Because it’s time I actually start cleaning my makeup brushes. Pink.



For Our Home

Porcelain 16pc Coupe Dinnerware Set White: Because we need new plates and I love the simplicity of these. We need 3 sets to make service for 12 (because we have small kids who sometimes break things).

Woodburn Metal and Glass 26.5″ Table Lamp: Because one of our lamps got broken and the other is ruined. We would need 2 of these.

Madison Park Kate White Cotton Seersucker Duvet Cover Set: Because I want to redecorate our bedroom and I like to live dangerously. King.

Brookside Down Alternative Reversible Quilted Comforter with Corner Duvet Tabs: Because the aforementioned duvet cover needs a duvet insert. King.

Artificial Lamb Ear and White Berry Wreath (24″): Because I want to hang this over the mirror in my dining room.

Porcelain Pitcher White: Because this is just too cute and I would use it to decorate with flowers somewhere.

    Love these ideas! I push off things for me too often so your home ideas are awesome-never really thought of that since I usually bring the HomeGoods and Target hauls in myself -but new dinnerware sounds fantastic!

    I love your brand and would love to partner on your next holiday post, as I have an idea for holiday giving I think you’d really like!
