Gift Guide for Her

The internet tells me it’s gift guide time already! Yikes, I haven’t even started shopping for Christmas yet. It sounds like deliveries/supply chains are going to be a pain again this year. So I’ll throw my hat in the ring too with my gift giving lists. Let’s start off with my personal fave – The Gift Guide for Her, or well me. :)

This is a mix of things I have and LOVE, and also a few items I would be happy to find in my stocking this year.

Gift Guide for Her

1. Street Level Reversible Faux Leather Tote & Wristlet – I actually bought this bag about 5 years ago and I use it ALL the time. It’s roomy, reversible, and perfect for travel or work. Plus it’s at a great price point! I used it recently on our Colorado trip, and the X-ray belt somehow chewed it up. I can’t live without it, so I bought a new one in a different color way. I bought the deep brown with reversible cream interior, perfect for all 4 seasons.

2. Sur Necklace – I’ve had my beloved Atocha necklace from this same store for the last 4 years, and I still wear it almost every day. I think a monogrammed item is always a nice personal gift. I love the simple look of this initial necklace.

3. On Repeat Layering Set – I have a few layered necklaces in my jewelry rotation as well. I like buying them in a set because it’s no-brainer accessorizing in the morning. The details on this one are so delicate and pretty.

4. Open Front Duster Cardigan – Not gonna lie this cardigan was a late night Facebook ad that got me. I’d like to thank my insomnia for my new favorite sweater that I throw on with everything. It feels like a bathrobe, but creates an instant outfit. It’s perfect with jeans and boots.

5. All Nighter Lip Set – My mom recommended this lip mask last year and I’m now a believer too! This stuff saved my lips from the dry Colorado air on our recent trip so I know it will hold up against the Michigan winters. It’s so hydrating!

6. Garden Party Phone Case – My phone case has seen better days and I love to swap them out. A girl needs options! I love anything from Rifle and Co. and they have so many fun patterns for your phone.

7. Birth Month Flower Grow Kit – This is a new find for me. I think it’s such a cute idea for mom, teacher, or friend! It comes with everything you need to grow a little pot of flowers for your birth month.

8. Dagny Monogram Mug – It wouldn’t be a Lily Pad Cottage gift guide without a monogram Anthro mug! I get a new one every year, and I have quite a few in my rotation now.

9. Fur Slippers – Fuzzy slippers are always a good idea. These are a better price point than the Birkenstock or Uggs that are so popular.

10. Performance Joggers – These are my go to weekend wear. They take me from soccer mom duty to snuggling on the couch with a good book. They are comfortable without looking sloppy. These are the Mr.’s fave brand of joggers too.

11. Scallop Active Wear High Waisted Leggings – I bought a pair of these leggings this fall, and they are by far my favorite brand I’ve ever owned. I’ve owned them all – Lululemon, Athleta, Zella, American Eagle. These are the best, they are butter soft and stay put.

12. Thick Knit Beanie – I love Gigi and Pip hats. I have 4 now I think? They are reliably cute and cozy.

13. Leather Wrap Journal – I always have a pretty notebook on my nightstand to jot down random thoughts or prayers.

14. Capri Volcano Candle – These smell AMAZING. Hands down my favorite candle scent ever. The new matte finish is really cool.

15. Renew Transit Bag – I love this stye of bag for traveling, theme parks, and hiking. I forgot to pack one for our Colorado trip and I was kicking myself the entire time.

16. Cinched Cocoon Sherpa – This may be at the top of my list, it looks SO cozy. I typically buy a new sherpa every year and I love the full zip with the cinching on this one – so flattering!

Phew – Gift Guide for Her 2021 done! My kid’s guides and the Mr. guides, coming soon!
