After Halloween it’s Christmas! At least that’s what it feels like; I don’t really start feeling the Christmas spirit as far as decorating goes until Thanksgiving, but I do like to get a head start on my gift buying to avoid the growing crowds at shopping centers as Christmas day approaches. Below are the stocking stuffers I’m obsessed with categorized by the near and dear friends we all have that will appreciate them the most.
The Fabulous Foodie
You know her (or him), they’re the friend that’s always ready to eat, the one who finds all the best brunch spots, and the happy hours that always include food. Tantalize their tactful taste buds with the gourmet gift of Sugarfina candy. The family owned company makes artisan treats for adults and offers holiday gift sets and bento boxes to make giving easy.
Nobody does popcorn better than Garrett’s, the Chicago based gourmet popcorn company is my favorite popcorn and they have these super convenient gift containers so shipping and storing is easy.
I love coffee but I enjoy tea from time to time when I want a break from caffeine, the Tea Forte Sipscriptions Petite Presentation Box contains 10 silken pyramid infusers, including 2 each of: Resist (defense), Regroup (detox), Results (fitness), Reboot (energy), and Retreat (relaxation) blends. No need to add sugar when you can stir with these Clover Honey Tea Spoons from Neiman Marcus.
The Happy Homebody
You love her because she always volunteers to host girls night, she loves having friends over, and her place smells like vanilla and pine needles. We don’t know how she does it, but this season take one thing of her to do list and gift her some fabulous fragrances to keep that house of hers such a welcoming home.
Nest Fragrances has a great selection of candles and diffusers for holidays and all year round. I like to keep diffusers in my bathroom and candles in the living room for cozy nights in.
During the cooler months and especially the holidays I wear my hair straight more often and this Protective Hair Wrap keeps my hair smooth and soft. I love all the beautiful color combinations, from classic black to the Ruby Red Amethys below. SILKE London also offers these super cute hair ties for pony tails others pulled back looks.
The Fresh Fiancé
It’s almost inevitable during this time of the year that someone you know is getting engaged; and while there will be no shortage of bridal, couples, and wedding showers in the spring, here are a few go to’s that your soon to be bridal bestie will need to make sure she stays on point while that new ring sparkles at all the holiday parties.
These Smith & Cult base and top coats add longevity to her favorites nail color.

I received this Kate Spade Miss to Mrs Tumbler as an engagement gift and I have been obsessed with it! I used it everyday while I was engaged and I still pull it out from time to time now. It’s perfect for grabbing and running all those holidays errands.
Remind your girl that even with her new journey of love, now more than ever it is more important to love herself so she can be the best wife and partner she can. Make the Self Love Bath and Body kit a ritual and a reminder to take of herself, relax, and enjoy every moment of this special time.
