Gift Guide

I'm back! I'm so sorry that my blogging has been so spotty! I feel like I've been going a million miles an hour and to add to it I've been working overtime everyday at work. EEK! So I appreciate your patience with me :) Today, I thought it would be fun for me to cover some gift ideas for Christmas. These gifts definitely cater towards the ladies...sorry to any of my male readers!

So I've mentioned it before but my coworkers absolutely make my job! They are some of my best friends. I want to bring all my work friends a little treat for Christmas but don't want to blow the bank or leave anyone out. So I thought an edible gift in a pretty package would be absolutely perfect. I haven't decided which one I will make but here are some of my ideas...

This just looks so delicious! There are some people that are chocolate people or peanut butter people but I'm a sugar cookie person so this speaks to me.

I'm all about my slow cooker so I love the idea of utilizing it for my gifts!

Toffee just screams Christmas to me. 

Here are a few ideas for friends, moms, sisters, aunts, cousins, etc.


I've recapped some of my Birchboxes here and here. I absolutely adore my Birchbox. It's only $10 a month and you get 5 sample size items. It's like getting a gift every month. You can buy someone a 3, 6, or 12 month subscription.


The other week my roomie and I went to Nordstrom for a shopping event. I had the chance to see MACs new lipstick collection and it's absolute PERFECTION!! It's bold colors but matte. I adore it.

The new ones are in the bottom left corner :) You can check them out here. Seriously, any lipstick lover would swoon over these colors.


Full disclosure, I don't have a Yeti tumbler but I've heard great things from a lot of people! Apparently, it is great at keeping cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot. This would be great for the coffee and/or tea drinkers in your life. Check them out here.


When I recapped my trip to the mountains for my mom's birthday I mentioned how I got her a selfie stick! We've had so much fun with it. It's a really inexpensive gift that provides endless entertainment. Just for fun here are some of our selfies...


Hello, my name is Lauren and I'm addicted to my Keurig. When I first became a coffee drinker I had a mini coffee pot and I despised cleaning it everyday. Then the Keurig entered my life and it was a match made in heaven.

If you have a coffee lover in your life who doesn't have a Keurig, your job this Christmas is to fix it!


Last, but certainly not least, the fantastic beauty blender. I have a love affair with my beauty blender. Nothing in the world puts on makeup or is more versatile than the beauty blender.

Well, those are some of the gift ideas I have for you! I would love to hear some suggestions from y'all! Happy Wednesday, friends! xoxo

  1. Love the beauty blender! My keurig is my best friend! Food is always a great gift ! And the yeti cup is legit! I got my son the colster....the thing is awesome! Happy Wednesday

  2. Oh my goodness, i'm so in love with your gift ideas. I want them all. I actually think i'm getting one of my family members a Yeti this year. It's all I hear about! Hope things slow down, especially at work. I know what that's like :(

  3. I don't even clean my Keurig as much as I should so I would definitely despise cleaning a coffee pot haha! I actually bought a Keurig for the guy I dated in college for that very reason! Send me some toffee if you make it, PLEASE make plans with me when you come to DC, and I hope you are working a lot in prep for a few days of relaxation around the holidays :)
