MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Just kidding y'all. But seriously, next thing you know those phrases will be coming right out of our mouths because it's going to come by so fast! With that said, I'm super excited to bring to you all my first EVER Holiday Gift Guide. Please bear with me as this is my first one and I tried to do my best to include a variety of items, but also things that reflect my personal taste! I did a little poll on the 'ol Instagram & a lot of y'all wanted a gift guide and that y'all preferred for me to round 'em up all in one blog. So... this will be a lengthy one - get your popcorn, coffee, ice cream, matcha, what have you and pop a squat and keep on scrolling. I hope you find this gift guide helpful & please let me know of any tips, suggestions, constructive criticism (be nice!). Thank you!
What I'll do is for each gift guide, I'll write a little blurb of why I included those items in the specific category. Also, all of the images as SHOPPABLE, meaning you can click on the item and it will take you directly to the website where it's sold. Although, I cannot guarantee if it's still in stock if you're reading this at a later time :(
Gifts $20 and Under
This gift guide is perfect for gift exchanges, stocking stuffers, friends, or as add-ons! The items are very practical and there's a variety so you're sure to find something that will make a great gift. I included a picture frame in there where you can make it more personalized and add your own pictures (you with your friend(s), picture of your fave place or things, cute graphics, and so much more). Also, mugs are always a great gift because let's face it, we can never have enough mugs! AND candles - you literally can do no wrong. SERIOUSLY. Something to keep in mind: I bought some of the Champagne Bears from Sugarfina (non-alcoholic, BTW) and in the store, they have options of getting "Bento Boxes" meaning you can choose up to 3 different flavors and they'll put it in the giftable box for you! Another great option ;)
Gifts For Her
Where my ladies at?! These items are $200 and under, except for the Apple Watch Series 3 which is around $400. My fave is probably the Over The Knee Boots (which yes, I got for myself)! I also included a few Gift Box item options for my Beauty-Lovers! Would you ladies want a specific Gift Guide for Beauty Lovers?! I can do a Guide for skincare picks and then make-up picks! What do you all think?! Let me know in the comments below or send me a DM on Instagram (@_dorothyfaye). So ladies, if your significant other is having a hard time picking something out for you, you can show them this ;) Or hey, you can even use this as gift ideas to show your parents, sister, brother, whoever!
Gifts For Him
Alright fellas, OR ladies that need gift ideas for their man... here are some of my picks! Again, the items are about $200 and under, except for the Apple Watch Series 3 which is about $650 but it's because it has the GPS+Cellular Features. But if you want the regular version, you can see it HERE ($350). My favorite pick from this one would probably be the Bose portable speakers and the MVMT watch! My fiance has been eyeing some portable speakers and this was one of the ones I came across while looking. Also, watches are a very great gift because they will last for a very long time and it can truly be a sentimental item - I love that. If the man in your life is a bit more of a fashionista, I'm diggin' the olive green Bomber Jacket, paired with the classic Converse!
Gifts For the Fitness Enthusiast
Okay, I'm not gonna lie: this one is my favorite out of the four gift guides. This is the fitness enthusiast's wish list-extraordinaire! As before, all the items are under $200, and there's a wide price range so no worries ;) One of the items on here is also on my personal wishlist and that is the: Alo Yoga Moto Leggings (High-Waisted). Can you just think of all the ways you can wear these leggings?! Obvs, you can wear it to the gym, but you can also wear it when you're running around, dressing it up for dinner with a longer blouse or sweater... oh the possibilities are endless! Another fave, are the BKR water bottles and I have one too. It's such a better alternative to plastic water bottles and perfect for the girl on the go to stay hydrated. Also check out the S'well bottle (yes, yes I personally have it too) - if you're wanting a water bottle that can hold iced or hot drinks (or wine maybe ;) ). Last but not least, is the Ursa Major set for you Exercise Freaks out there! Don't forget that you still need to take care of your skin and body afterward!
Two more items for the fitness enthusiast I wanted to throw in the gift guide (not pictured) are:
1. FRE Skincare 123 set. It's perfect for those who love to exercise but tend to forget about their skin & washing off the sweat afterward. I use it every single day, whether I worked out or had a rest day & it has been one of the keys to keeping my skin in tip top shape. I have some exciting deals coming up to help you save some $ for the skincare set, but in the meantime, you can use LITML15 to get 15% off!
2. Ellie Activewear. A fitness gear subscription box that is delivered to your door monthly. You have the ability to skip months you're not in a mood for a box, so no worries about committment! I'm telling you - their options get better and better every month! They have 2 options and the first one is perfect for those who only want the workout clothes and its $39.99. The other option is $49.99 and it includes the workout clothes PLUS workout accessories! So, if you're thinking of getting the best bang for your buck, gifting one of these boxes is perfect!
Don't forget, you can use LITML15 to receive 15% off your order ;)
Alright, I told you all that this would be a long one! One thing I do want to say is that remember this is only a guide. And I was struggling to include all of the things I found in one post! So, if some of these things are out of your price-range or not up your alley, it's truly only meant to inspire and give you all a starting place. Christmas shopping is always overwhelming for me, hence I'm a last minute shopper because I work better under pressure haha! Especially when it comes to shopping.
I hope this has been helpful, and again let me know if there may be another genre of gift guides I can bring to you all! It's so fun creating these.
Wishing you all a happy holidays & happy shopping!
