Oh man you guys, its present season. The pressure. Is. On.
I’m pretty good at buying gifts for people most of the time but we all have that person in our life who we find it very difficult to buy for. So today I decided to put my knowledge of social media and trends to good use and put together a list of cool girl gifts for that bad ass, self made, impossibly chic, always on point woman in your life who just always seems like she has her shit together. In my experience that’s the hardest person to buy for, so I think it will be helpful.
Everything in the image above is shoppable if you just click on the item in the photo, except the damn planner on the top left because it wouldn’t let me add a link for that. However that’s ok because I wanted to talk about that separately anyway! I have been using an XO planner for all of 2016 and if you or someone in your life is self employed I can not recommend it enough. It has actually changed my life. I know that sounds crazy but hear me out.
Specifically designed for entrepreneurs and go getter types, not only is this planner organized by months where you can keep track of your finances, your appointments, your deadlines as well as your goals and priorities, it also has daily pages where you can write out everything from your schedule, your to do list, your fitness and this year they even added a section where you can keep track of what you are grateful for, which is very important to me as you may have noticed in my Thanksgiving post last week. It’s not the cheapest planner in the world but I already ordered my 2017 one because I know I will not function as well without it. It was a game changer. I’m not sponsored to talk about them, and I paid for both planners myself, just for the record. I just really love them that much. You can find them for sale on the XO website HERE, there are also other cover designs but this one is the coolest IMHO.
As for the other items I tried to get a good range of things price wise, but nothing is over the top expensive (except the Natasha Denona palette, but I couldn’t help myself). I might do a high end beauty gifts guide in a few days so I will save the extra pricey stuff for that. And all the makeup and beauty items are things that I 100% vouch for formula wise , so there won’t be any duds in there. As a matter of fact, that Tarte palette is quickly becoming a holy grail item for me, so if you have any hardcore makeup lovers on your list that one will go over quite well.
So go ahead and click around that photo to shop for the cool chicks in your life, or for yourself because if you’re reading this you’re probably a bad ass cool chick yourself…and I know you Christmas shop for yourself, don’t even lie! No judgements though, I do it too.
