Gifts for Your Girls: 8 Great Ideas for the Women In Your Life

shopping

The holiday season is among us, and it excites me! It is the time of year that brings together family, food, fun, and friends. Our friends especially our girls are the ones who keep us feeling grounded, focused, loved, and inspired. Our girls and other women in our lives deserve to know how much we care about them. Gift giving is one of the main ways we can show our appreciation. This post is inspired by and sponsored by my crew the Bloggers Like Me Girls. In addition, I vow to make a stronger commitment to being a better friend to my BLM girls and my girlfriends who I love and wish to see more of in 2013 (this is a resolution, of course!)

Without further ado, here are  8 great gift ideas for the ladies in your life! P.S. Some of these gifts are good for many different people in your life.

1. Nail Polish (Remix!)

What woman doesn’t like having pretty nails?

3. Jewelry and/or  Jewelry holder ( My favorite!)

Pick out a piece she will love whether it is earrings, a necklace, or bracelet. Then give her a unique way to organize her fabulous jewelry!

4.  Homemade Goodies

Put a little love into your gift!!! Make something by hand that gives a warm and fuzzy feeling to the recipient. Mt favorite thing to make our chocolate and vanilla covered pretzels. They are quick to make and always a hit!

6.  Good Reads

Books!! Keep her knowledgeable and empowered with a book like Beautylicious:The Black Girls Guide to the Fabulous Life or Ebony Editor & Cheif Amy Dubois Barnett’s, Get Yours!: How to Have Everything You Ever Dreamed Of .  Another great book list to check out is 6 Books to Raise Your Cultural Consciousness. Also, consider getting a subscription to her favorite magazine such as: O, Essence, Glamour…whatever piques her interest!

7. Favorite Movies or TV Shows

Pick up some sister girl classics such as Waiting to Exhale or Love Jones, or throw in something newer like For Colored Girls, Grey’s Anatomy, or Scandal Season One.

Olivia is one bad chick! Offer someone the opportunity to experience Ms. Pope!

  1. These are some great ideas. Last year I got my friends hand painted wine glasses with their initials. They were really surprised!

  2. These are great ideas. I love the wine glass and will probably do that for my best friend. Money is tight per usual and I love to personalize stuff. #WinWin

  3. Those are really great ideas! I couldn’t decide which one I liked best. I did receive a personalized wine glass last year for Christmas and I love it. The homemade gifts are perfect for those of us on a really tight budget.

    • Sheri, I think I will also do some homemade gifts this year. I like how easy and inexpensive they are. Thanks for stopping by and showing some #BLM love!

  4. Adorable. I need to befriend you before the 25th gets here…lol. Your friends and fam will love these gifts. Super universal, affordable, and cute.

  5. Awesome ideas…hair products and wine!…Let’s just say WINE is PERFECT!!

  6. I…LOVE…these ideas! Great post!

  7. I definitely could have used these ideas. They really are good and practical for anyone I think. Thanks for visiting the blog. #BLMBlogHop

  12. This is great! Now you have me thinking about how I can surprise my little crew with something cute… *hmmmmmmm* #blmbloghop

  13. Great list! I am loving the idea of the polish especially for the toes. . .I think most of us put pedi’s on the back burner during the winter months (or maybe it’s just me. ha!) but this is a good way to help keep the feet from looking beat! LOL! Maybe add a tube of scented lotion and socks too! LOVE! I’m definitely doing this!

    Thanks for sharing!

  14. These are fabulous ideas! I especially love hair products, lol!

  15. Your gift ideas are great! Get Yours and Beautylicious are two of my favorite reads (as I still go back and re-read them for reference) and I just love Scandal. I know my bestie would probably love receiving a personalized wine glass and nail polish baggies, while my sister would enjoy the jewelry holder and hair products (so she can quit raiding my stash when she comes to my house lol). Thanks so much for sharing these ideas! This has helped me, as I’ve been drawing blanks for these two ladies in my life lol.

  16. I am predicting this from ahead of time that you can be quite a popular blogger eventually!

    Just continue doing the remarkable work!

  17. Very unique ideas. Great book choices. Would love to gift those!
