2. A gift card to italist.com

This is one of my favorite gift ideas here. I discovered Italist.com this year and I am madly in love. This is a boutique-style online shop for luxury goods. It is expertly-curated for the boujiee friend we all have. In this case, it’ll be me. Thus, why I am getting myself a Manolo Blahnik pumps on their site for my birthday. All items are imported from Italy at the best price and delivered to your doorstep. Italist.com is the first platform to offer direct-to-consumer imports of luxury goods exclusively from Italy. Through italist.com, you can simply purchase brand-new, authentic, in-season fashion and accessories from their myriad partner boutiques in Italy.

3. Beauty Bio R45 Reversal

This is such a cool gift for your Mom or an Aunt in the family. This product is nothing short of a miracle!!! The 3 Phase set by BeautyBio is the anti-aging answer you’ve been looking for. It’s retinol at it’s finest, and we all know how much I love Retinol. If you’re dealing with aging/dull/uneven skin tone this set is amazing. I noticed a difference within the first week. It’s simply a holy grail product. Your Mom or Aunt would certainly notice a difference after only a week. It’s a great product and such a thoughtful gift. 


4. The Charlotte Darling Makeup Kit

Charlotte Tilbury is my favorite beauty brand. There isn't a makeup brand that embodies who I am more than their brand. Thus, when I was gifted their ‘Charlotte Darling Makeup Kit’, I knew I had to include it in this article. The Darling Kit includes an eye palette for romantic, sunset eyes. As well as, an eyeliner, mascara, lip liner, the light wand, and last but not least, the superstar lips lipstick. These are 5 of my favorite products from the brand. This kit is perfect for an easy, glowing, glossy makeup look in minutes!! The best part? The kit includes a stunning makeup bag. I’m buying this to gift to my sister, and you should too for the lady in your life who loves an everyday effortless look.

5. Away carry-on luggage

The perfect gift for the friend who is always on the go. Perhaps, the friend who travels for a living. For $225, you get a thoughtfully designed, sleek piece of luggage in a myriad of colors. It is sized to fit comfortably into the overhead bins on most airlines. I purchased my Away carry-on in 2016, (I know we don’t get everything sponsored….Surprise!) and it’s held up well over time. It’s a bit scratched up, sure, but still looks fashionable enough. I can fit enough items in it for a 3-day vacation. It's unisex, so I’d recommend getting this for a husband or boyfriend.



6. Fossil Rose Gold Stainless Steel Watch

I ordered this for my Mom’s birthday last year. She does all her chores with this watch on, including washing dishes and it has NEVER changed color. It has remained its authentic rose gold color. The only thing is that it is described as a large-faced watch on their site, but it’s more of a girly-sized face. It is perfect for an everyday watch or even for dressier outfits. The best part is that it looks WAY MORE expensive than it is. It’s stunning -- There is no other word to describe this watch. This a great gift for the elegant woman in your life. 



7. Dyson AM10 Humidifier

This is one of the best things that’s ever happened to me. I have always suffered from breathing problems since I was an oxygen tank baby. It seems to get worse as I get older. I learned that breathing dry household air can cause serious problems. Especially during winter, the air gets dryer, which increases the body’s susceptibility to viruses. In my research, I discovered the Dyson Humidifier. It’s the only humidifier that is certified for asthma and is allergy friendly by Allergy Standards Limited. I have noticed a significant difference in not only my breathing but also my skin. This is the perfect holiday gift for the “always sick” friend. He/She would forever be indebted to you. The Dyson Humidifier is available in white/silver, iron/blue, and black/nickel.


8. M.A.C Starry Eyed Kit

This is the perfect gift for the friend who is just starting to get into makeup. It includes 2 Extra Dimension Eyeshadows, Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash Mascara and a Liquidlast 24-Hour Waterproof Liner.You can get this $96 value for only $39. This is the perfect thank you gift in soft colors to make someone know that you appreciate them this holiday season.



9. Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party

This is the perfect gift to add a little spice to a friend’s life this holiday season. This Party box contains one master palette that breaks into one larger palette and two smaller ones that contain 20 different eyeshadows in matte and glitter finish shades as well as a bronzer, highlighter, and blush. You’ll also get a Better Than Sex Mascara, deluxe Melted Matte Gingerbread Man, and a deluxe Shadow Insurance 24 Hour Eyeshadow Primer. The whole collection smells like fresh-baked gingerbread, I swear I could eat it. Not only that, it's simply GORGEOUS. I had never tried TooFaced eyeshadow before, so I was pleasantly surprised that it is quite pigmented and blends impeccably well. The packaging is adorable! The mini Melted Matte lip color in Gingerbread Man is a perfect fall/winter shade. This is a must-have for any makeup lover on your Holiday list! A $353 value for only $58.00! Enjoy! 


10. The Rihanna Book

The coffee table book of the year for Rihanna fans. I am such a huge fan of Princess Ri-Ri that I had to get my hand on this book. The book visually covers everything from her Barbados childhood to her worldwide tours, from iconic fashion moments to private time with friends and family. This perfect coffee table book showcases intimate photographs of Rihanna’s life as an artist, performer, designer, and entrepreneur. Many of these images have never been published before. Rihanna is an icon and I’m so so honored to include her book on this list.
