For starters, how the heck are we already in November, getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving and gearing up for Christmas (major shrug emoji here)?

In my ideal world, I’d do my Christmas shopping throughout the year, so this time of year doesn’t just sneak up on me out of nowhere. Butttt, let’s be real here, I have a little lady who just turned two and a newborn, so #aintnoonegottimeforthat. Goals for next year…maybe. I also have two other gift guides here (for the gents) and here (for the toddlers) for you to check out! 🙂


Mama-Friendly Christmas Shopping

Christmas shopping with two kids in tow isn’t the most ideal scenario for me: There are not enough snacks and books to hold Aria over before she just wants to get out of the stroller (Sidenote: We do the one car life, so I literally would be hauling gifts on our double stroller) and run amuck. Enter Amazon…especially Amazon Prime (yes, and amen).

So, to sum up, I’ll be doing most of my Christmas shopping from my couch this year. I thought i’d share some of the things i’ll be getting in case you wanted some gift ideas for the friend/GF/wife/mom in your life (some of these gifts are great for the gents too, btw). I’ll be sharing some more ideas this week too, so stay tuned!

(You can pin the image below to reference back to for the gift ideas! 🙂

The Gift Ideas!


2018 Rifle Paper Quote Calendar

I’ve always been a sucker for Rifle Paper goods. If you’re buying for a friend who likes pretty florals and inspiring quotes, you can’t go wrong with this pick!


Moscow Mule Mugs

Copper, yes please. Also, these mugs house my cocktail of choice, so it’s a win win.


Voluspa Candle

This candle is one of my faves. It smells great, and once you’re done burning the candle, the jar makes for a beautiful vase or storage container.


Takeya Water Bottle 

I don’t know about you, but staying hydrated when you have a bottle you like is so much easier (Who’s with me?). I have different size Hydroflask bottles, but I do like the size and spout of my Takeya better (it fits in our car’s cupholder).


Five-Minute Journal

Dave and I recently started using this journal, and we both love it! It’s great if you’ve got a ton of time to journal or “no time.” It’s a great way to start your days and end your nights, keep goals and reflect on the things you’re thankful for.


Macrame Plant Hanger

Even when macrame isn’t the fad anymore, i’ll love these b/c they’re such an easy way to add plant accents around your home. This one has pretty details and is a steal at $12.99!


Rifle Paper Appointment Calendar

Yes, so here’s another calendar option. The first one was just your straight-forward calendar calendar. This one is great for the friend who wants a calendar she can use for planning as well.


Cheese Board

I love cheese boards. They’re great for entertaining (hello, charcuterie). This would make a great gift for your gal pal whose the hostess with the mostest.



What gifts do you like to get for your gal pals? I’d love to hear! Leave your comments below, so I can get some more ideas for this year :).
