In my opinion, shopping for women is way easier than shopping for a man. Women just love stuff. Or at least I do. I’m happy getting a new pair of slippers every Christmas. It’s something I’ve always looked forward to! Below I’ve listed five things that I think could make a great gift for a friend, relative or spouse.
What is it: 100% Pure Argan Oil–“the Moroccan miracle moisturizer”
Who is it for: Perfect for all skin types.
How to use it: An incredibly rich source of vitamin E and essential fatty acids, this pure and organic argan oil has conditioning and antiaging properties.
Use it to moisturize the face and body, help reduce the appearance of fine lines, soften cuticles, treat split ends, or remove makeup. Genius!
2. Lay n Go Cosmetic bag
What is it: Quilted cosmetics mat cinches closed into a travel-ready clutch.
What it does: Protect your brushes and accessories from getting wet, and pack them up easily when you’re done. Liner is 100% nylon and water repellent.
Where to find it: This is getting great reviews and I actually saw it on Scary Mommy’s gift guide. I plan to get one, what an awesome invention!

*3. Tieks by Gavrieli
What they are: “The most versatile designer flats in the world. Made of the finest Italian leathers and designed to fold and fit in a purse. Wearable all day, every day.”
Why you’ll love them: Let’s face it, I’m a mom to two small children and I’ve ditched my high heels. While I wear them on special occasion, they are not part of my daily wardrobe. These flats are the most comfortable flats I’ve ever owned! They fit like a glove and are made of the softest leather. They are meant to go the distance. While they may seem like a splurge, they are worth every penny if you plan to wear them often. Plus, the packaging is to die for! Tieks really pays attention to detail. From the handwritten, personal note, to the carefully wrapped flats topped with a bedazzled flower!
What makes them unique: Tieks are made from 100% premium, soft, full-grain leather. The upper of each pair of Tieks comes from a single piece of leather. The upper is designed to wrap around the foot to slim and elongate it. Their highest end leathers are custom-made in Italy.
Where to find them: These fashionable flats are only available at Tieks.com. You cannot find them in any store!
Tip: I wear a half-size and wasn’t sure about which size to order. I ordered a 7 and then thought it might stretch over time, so customer service sent me a 6 to compare them both. They had me send back whichever one I didn’t want to keep. They were super nice to deal with and paid for shipping each way!
*4. Essence of Beauty Products
What is it: Affordable fragrance, bath and body care. Great items for stocking stuffers! Essence of Beauty® has engaged master perfumers from around the world to create a series of unforgettable fragrances.
Why you’ll love it: There’s a scent to suit every mood and spirit. Each skin care formula is free from parabens, artificial dyes, phthalates, petrolatum and gluten. And they are never test on animals.
I’ve been using the In The Tropics Bath & Shower Gel and love it! The fresh smell is just what I need to wake up in the morning.
Where to find it: CVS/pharmacy or CVS.com
5. The Sleepover Cotton Pajama by Victoria’s Secret
What is it: Lightweight, soft cotton PJs that you will want to hang in all day long. These pajamas have cute details like contrast piping and a pocket.
They’re available in sizes XS to XL.
What you’ll love: They have an easy fit. They’re lightweight. Soft and stretchy. They come in three pant lengths: short, regular or long. They also come in tons of colors. Something for everyone!
Where to find them: VictoriasSecret.com and search catalog number: VG-288-259
