Ahhh Christmas...my favorite time of the year. While the holidays are amazing, they can be stressful when it comes to finding the perfect gifts for your loved ones. I'm here to help! I'll be making multiple gift guides, but the first one will be focused on gifts for your girlfriend! Obviously every girl is different, so that's why I've made a large list of options, from budget-friendly to splurge-worthy gifts, this list is bound to have something she'll love!
the girly girl
14k gold zodiac coin necklace - $80
cuffed by nano is a small business run by women, making such cute and quality jewelry here in the US! this zodiac necklace is perfect because it's very versatile, yet still personalized with her zodiac sign! this is a great alternative to initial necklaces, a bit more unique in my opinion. their site has tons of other jewelry so if you want to spend more, or less, there's plenty to choose from!
pink skims robe - $128
skims have set new fuzzy loungewear trend, and I've heard nothing but great things. this robe is to die for and comes in other colors as well. if you want to get your girl more than this, they also have shorts, pants, tops and slippers that match this robe as well!
tortoiseshell box bag - $92.88
this bag is *stunning*, chic, timeless and I need it asap. your girlfriend will love this bag trust me! acrylic bags are in right now, and this version gives you the best of both worlds. with such a timeless print like tortoise shell, this crossbody is never going out of style!
double gg tights - $40
these tights are so adorable, also available in black and a great alternative to the pricier designer option they're inspired by. your girlfriend will love styling these all winter!
dyson supersonic hair dryer + gift set - $399
bless your girlfriend with eternal good hair days! if fuchsia isn't her thing, this hair dryer is available in other colors as well! while it looks confusing, trust me when I say this gadget is nothing but raved about. you can purchase it through Dyson, or if you don't have time to wait for shipping, Sephora carries it as well!
gold marble 2 piece luggage set - $325 (on sale)
this luggage set from calpak is a great gift for your jet setting girlfriend. while $325 might seem steep, it's a 2 piece set from a reputable brand. usually a single carry on from a durable brand is going to cost you $300+, so this is a great deal! currently, it's $325 and I'm not sure how long the sale will last / if it will drop even more come Black Friday, cyber Monday, etc. the usual set price is $360.
personalized travel map - $89+
what sets this specific customized travel map apart from others is that you can get it customized with your names on top. for extra, you can also have it come framed. trust me, she will love being able to display her travels with you and be reminded of all the adventures you two have been on together every time she walks past it!
personalized luggage tag & passport case - $69+
tons of color ways, customizable, and super cute, these vegan leather passport case and luggage tag are a great gift option! you can add her initials and choose from a bunch of different designs to make it perfect for her.
road trip candle - $34
2020 has most likely cancelled your girlfriend's travel plans, and this candle is a nice way to bring a touch of vacay to her! with options from cities, countries, moments, etc...homesick offers plenty of candle options she will love! this road trip one has raving reviews and is in stock, so snag it while you can!
the home chef
le creuset signature french oven - $154
I mean...who didn't aspire to be a home chef during quarantine at some point? This Le Creuset is the creme de la creme of dutch ovens, and you girlfriend will L-O-V-E this! She's probably been trying to justify splurging on it for the past couple months...trust me. Right now it's discounted, but regular retail is around $195.
marble & brass charcuterie board - $39
charcuterie is all the rage and this marble west elm board is a great option! it's usually $60 but right now is on sale for only $39. it comes in different variations, not just round, but I love this one, and I'm sure your girlfriend will too.
marcato stainless steel pasta maker - $50
this pasta maker is great because it's a stand alone appliance (usually most are steeply priced attachments for standing mixers). she will love being able to take her recipes to the next level by making pasta from scratch! this specific one has great reviews and only $3.95 shipping!
dualit milk frother - $99
this and similar products have been all over tiktok recently. if your girl is coffee obsessed, and doesn't already have an espresso machine, she will love this gift! the dualit has great reviews and is a bit less than other options!
the trend setter
icy studded square sunglasses - $65
your girlfriend will love these new quay glasses! the studded top really add a trendier vibe to these classic frames. check out their Black Friday sale, sometimes they heavily discount and you can get her something in addition!
boys lie sweatpants - $143
boys lie is a newer luxury sweat set brand that has such trendy staple pieces! they have different colors, matching tops, etc. if you order off revolve they ship in 2 days, so you should receive it with plenty of time before the holiday!
ugg fluff yeah slides - $100
all the rage recently, these fluffy slides come in more colors & are so adorable! be sure to get these while they're in stock, I've seen them sell out multiple times!
fotodiox ring light - $120
another pick from urban, your IG obsessed gf will love this ring light! while you may be thinking stuff like this is only for influencers, but it's not. lately, everyone is upping their selfie game with ring lights! this one has great reviews but you can also get cheaper ones off amazon if this one is out of your budget.
well there you have it, different gift options for all different budgets and preferences. keep in mind, the holidays, especially this year, are about enjoying time with loved ones and relaxing after such a tumultuous year. no matter what you end up gifting her, she will love that it came from you.
