It’s the time of year to start thinking about holiday gifts for your friends and family! I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get stumped on gift ideas. It’s difficult to buy clothes for someone else, unless you know their style and sizing really well, so I find it’s best to stick to jewelry, accessories, and fun little house items. The choices above are likely geared more towards girlfriends, moms, and the ladies in general. But if you happen to know a guy who would appreciate an Anthropologie mug or some nice Sabon cream, well, you hold on to him.

1) Anthropologie Homegrown Monogram Mug  $8

There’s not much I love more than a good coffee cup. I was actually given one of these mugs as a birthday present and thought it was such a great gift. Pair it with some loose leaf tea or a bag of coffee and your gift purchasing is done.

2) Vanessa Mooney Evil Eye Bracelet  $60

Bracelets are always a nice gift for friends and I’m really digging evil eye bracelets at the moment.

3) West Elm Dipped Blue Jewelry Holder  $19

Who wouldn’t want a fake hand to hold your rings and bracelets?

4) Ikat Print Apron  $28

Including an apron in a gift guide would never have occurred to me before, but an apron would have come in handy on Thanksgiving. Once you’re cooking in something other than pajamas, you realize the benefit of aprons.

5) Shashi Luna Bracelet  $13.50

A sweet, simple bracelet perfect for layering.

6) Sabon Butter Cream  $16

NYC based Sabon is a favorite of mine for bath soaps and lotions. It always feels nice to splurge a little bit on bath products.

7) Pure & Good Hand Duo  $34

I think a nice soap and lotion set always looks fancy sitting next to a sink. And really, who doesn’t want to be fancy?

8) Extended Capacity Battery iPhone Case  $28.57

A highly practical and helpful gift. I don’t know about anyone else, but it seems my iPhone battery lasts less and less since I updated to the latest software.

9) ASOS Lightweight Oversized Knitted Beanie  $10.55

Beanies are practically uniform in LA, but I’m told they wear them in other cities too…

10) West Elm Favorite Throw  $19

Who doesn’t love to curl up in a soft throw blanket? I could pretty much live in a draped blanket if it didn’t make me look like a crazy person who’s constantly cold.

11) ASOS Passport Holder  $14.07

For the jet setter in your life.

12) West Elm Brights Tin  $16.95

Candles are always a good gift.

13) Smashbox Studio Pop for Lips $26

What is the holidays without lip gloss sets I ask you?

*Stay tuned for more gift guides for the gents and those who don’t share my love of lip gloss and fake hand jewelry holders!
