As I was staring at my closet this morning and about to pull out my favorite sweatshirt and fleece-lined leggings to wear (again), I thought to myself, “I need to share the love and tell everyone about these things… or maybe I can add a few other things and make it a blog post about things to buy your gal pals!”
Seriously. That was the conversation in my head.
So here I am! Sharing a few of my favorite things that all of the gals in your life.
I saw this on a blogger last year, instantly messaged her where she got it from, and instantly bought it. And it is my very favorite sweatshirt! It’s just a plain-old-nothing-fancy sweatshirt, but it’s roomy without being too big and so comfy!
How could a friend (and one for you) not love this?! They also come in other hair colors, don’t worry! 🙂 Click here to go straight to the sweatshirt.
I know I’m one of only about eight people in this country that doesn’t like coffee. So I’m one-of-eight that doesn’t go to Starbucks on the daily (but while everyone else is dropping $4.75 for a mocha choca latte venti decaf frappuchino, I’m dropping $1.10 at my local McDonald’s on a medium coke. Boom.) – except when they came out with the plastic reusable cups.
Here is why I needed this one: I like to drink water from a cup with a straw because I drink it faster. I like clear cups because I can see how much is left in the cup. These are perfect for me. And I can get free water refills when I’m just passing by at Target! 🙂
These are perfect to stick gift cards in and only $4… and perfect timing as a cute gift with the red and white striped straw!
I came across this brand on Instagram over the summer and fell in LOVE with all of its necklaces! They have so many options from mother/daughter to best friends to different patterns that represent something. This necklace in particular is called the ‘Create Your Own Constellation’ and it says:
“Everything happens for a reason — the universe will bring you what you need at the right time in your life, but remember that sometimes faith needs an extra little push. Sometimes the universe doesn’t want you to sit back and wait — it wants to know that you are working towards the same ending. Sometimes you have to create your own opportunities, you have to create your own moments, you have to create your own path. Sometimes you have to create your own constellation — your stars are out there, you just have to connect the dots. Keep making your own rules. Keep making your own magic. Keep making your own life. Never stop looking up, never stop arranging your own stars — turn them into constellations and light your own way home.”
I love it – I also love that, to me, it would represent the five people in my family.
I also love ‘Go With the Waves’, ‘Strength’ and ‘Little Moments’ to name a few! These are really just the prettiest, not-over-the-top necklaces to wear daily that when you have it on and feel the charm, they bring good reminders to yourself… These are such great gifts for any female in your life! If you need one quickly, Francesca’s sells a few different options!
When this book came out earlier this year, I immediately bought two copies and sent one to my mom and one to my best friend. And I got two big thank you’s from them! I’ve never gotten into devotionals, but I love me some Melanie Shankle (her book ‘Nobody’s Cuter than You’ is officially one of my favorites AND one of the books I actually read this year… click here to read my review as well as a love gush on my BFF) and I would be OK if this book ended up in my stocking. 🙂
I don’t think you can go wrong putting gifting this to any of your girlfriends!
And last, but not least… you can never, never, ever, ever go wrong with a good snacky food for your friends! Jenna, if you are reading this, you now know that these pretzels are in your gift bag.
Unless I eat them before we get to you.
I also just saw had to go back to their website because I saw Blue Cheese Mustard. Really, Trader Joes? Now I have to get Jenna pretzels AND mustard?! Lord help me!
I hope that one of these gift ideas sparks something if you have been trying to map out gifts for friends… you can’t go wrong with any of these, that I can promise you!
