Full of fun things like pencils, shaped pushpins and paperclips, and even paper tape and sticky notes. The coordinated set will help her get organized, and makes a great companion to the Dot Journal set above. Available exclusively at Kohls.
Snapstyk Selfie Case
While we all claim that selfie sticks are ridiculous, the fact is that they have a place in our picture taking culture. They work for getting a picture of yourself with someone else, or a landmark. They also work well for filming on your own (that’s a secret pro tip there.) Snapstyk is a great looking case that has a selfie stick built into it. How cool is that? You’re never without your selfie stick, and it’s not one more thing to bring. It’s also Bluetooth enabled, and rotates to get the perfect angle.
Après Ski Earrings
Après Ski makes jewelry from retired skis, like these fun earrings. How cool is that, and it’s one of the best gifts for women who love the outdoors. You can really tell that this ski was well used, and it prevents these skis from ending up in the waste stream. These pieces are ideal for a ski bunny, or just that person that loves the cold weather. It’s almost guaranteed that no one else has anything like it. And since each piece comes from a real ski, no two pairs are the same. Apres Ski has necklaces, too.
Jack & Mary Mittens
These mittens are so cool. You can send in a sweater or something that has a lot of meaning to you, and Jack & Mary will make it into a pair of mittens. These tailored mittens are really well made, and are lined with fleece for total warmth. They take care to shape the mittens to really fit your hands, and not just make them like a pocket, Jack & Mary items are handmade in Maine of upcycled wool sweaters. You’re not only giving the gift of warmth, but one of the best gifts for women is memories.
Aporei Lace Robe Kimono
I am a huge fan of kimonos. I think they’re a fashion piece that works for pretty much any body type and takes your outfit up a notch without trying. This lace kimono from Aporei makes for a gorgeous gift. It’s stunning with an outfit, or you can wear it as a swimsuit cover. It’s also fabulous for a romantic evening. The lace is really nice quality, and not stiff or scratchy at all. It’s available in black, white, or a gorgeous creamy ivory.
Four Things Bag
We all have a few things that we absolutely love. Let the world know what yours are with this great Four Things canvas tote bag from The Shop Forward. Each bag is custom made for the recipient, and Is a perfect fit for their personality. The bag is a great size for trips to the farmer’s market or street fairs. Even better, each purchase helps support humanitarian efforts in Haiti. How amazing would the Four Things bag be for bridal party gifts?
Surreal Flame Candle
Flameless candles are everywhere nowadays, with some being better than others. The Surreal Flame Candle is a great option for your home décor. It has an actual real, poured wax candle that has a led flame. The flicker looks like a real flame, and the glass hurricane makes it look so elegant. The Surreal Flame Candle comes in a gorgeous rose gold finish that’s oh so modern, as well as yellow gold and silver.
Thirty-One Gifts Retro Metro Bag
One of the best gifts for women is a fab tote bag, and this Retro Metro bag from Thirty-One Gifts is pretty great. It’s large enough to carry what you need with you, while not being so big that it gets unwieldy. Retro Metro has an interior zip pocket, and two flat pockets that are great for organizing. There are also two good-sized exterior pockets that would be perfect for a water bottle. Factor in the perfect length straps, and a large lobster claw for your keys, and the Retro Metro bag is a total winner. Plus, I am in love with this Ikat Bazaar print.
Braun Silk Epil 9 Epilator
Any woman can tell you that shaving sucks. The new Silk Epil 9 from Braun removes hair for up to 4 weeks. It can remove the smallest, finest of hairs – even shorter hairs than waxing removes. The Epil 9 has SensoSmart technology. Which prenents you from pushing too hard, and a pivoting head to go around curves and reach into nooks and crannies. And with 5 different caps, there’s one that’s perfect for your hair removal needs.
If you’re looking for a real candle to gift, try Effuse Candles. Effuse is a small candle shop that’s hand pouring small batch candles using coconut wax and essential oils. Not only that, but most of their candles have wood wicks. How’s that for something different and unique? Their scents are unique, and definitely land on the sophisticated side. If someone you know has a soy allergy, you should definitely check out Effuse.
