Gift Guide: Easy Gifts for Women

I often find that I always see gifts I want to buy the ladies in my life, but when it comes time to do holiday shopping, I freeze up. Anyone else?! So I put together this holiday gift guide (or any time gift guide!) for women that’s chock full of easy peasy gifts! You can give them alone or bundle a few together!

What I love most about them is that they are mostly one-size-fits-all (with the exception of the vest, but thats an easy one because it doesn’t have sleeves!). You won’t have the stress of wondering if your gift will fit the recipient, and in my opinion, anyone should be happy to receive these cute pieces! read more

The Cozy Gift Guide

Here’s the first guide in a series of gift guides this holiday season!  Right now, I am in such cozy mode that I am craving all the cozy things!   Give me all the soft sweaters, slipper socks, scarves… You name it, I want it!  I’m sharing reasonably-priced cozy gifts from my favorite retailers!

The Cozy Gift Guide for Her

The Cozy Gifts

I plan on curating guides specific to many different kinds of recipients.  Please leave a comment on this post with a guide you would find useful, and I’ll get on it right away!

    1. Knit Tech Gloves ($9.99, come in 4 colors)  Everyone could use a pair of these!  Who wants frozen fingers when  handling their phone at a tailgate party or at a holiday parade with the family?!
    2. Velvet Slipper Socks ($10, come in 3 colors)  Happy feet.  ‘Nuff said.
    3. Fleece Onesie Pajamas (about $35, come in 6 variations and have pom pom drawstrings!)  I have never had onesie pajamas, and I am a sucker for the red holiday print!  These jammies are footless, which I love because I’m tall.  When I was a kid, the onesies pajamas with footies were always stretched to the max on me.  I hated it!  It was either that, or they were 2 sizes to big to accommodate length!
    4. Chenille Leggings ($58, come in 3 colors) These are sooo soft. I want to LIVE in them.
    5. Crackled Glass Candle in Mulled Wine ($34) I just bought this cozy candle yesterday.  At first, I was drawn to the pretty presentation, but once I took a whiff, I was a goner!  Smells sooo good!
    6. Faux Fur Ear Muff ($24, come in 3 colors) Faux fur anything is always so cute, and I love that these ear muffs look like a headband!
    7. Patchwork Fair Isle Knit Scarf ($79.50, but 25%  off right now with code READYTOPARTY, comes in 2 colors) How charming are the colors and the fringe?  Bonus: Scarves fit everyone!
    8. Faux Sherpa Open Hoodie ($79.50) This cozy number has a shirttail hem and side slit pockets.  It’s an amped up version of your standard cardigan!
    9. Sweater Dress (on sale for $98 for a limited time, comes in 4 colors) Throw this on and look chic but feel like you’re in pajamas.  It’s perfect for days when you’re not sure if friends and family are stopping by your house.
    10. Long Sleeve Cozy Henley ($24.99, comes in 3 colors) This is not your average henley!  It has a relaxed fit and isn’t as form-fitting as others.  Where are my large-busted girls?!  This one won’t make you feel like you’re on display!
