Family Life / Seasonal

Gift ideas for the ladies in your life!

When I wrote the blog about gifting for the men in your life, I didn’t realize that the women far out number the men in our family! Sisters, Sister in laws, Mamas, Grandmamas, Aunties! This list might not suit everyone. But this is a list of some of my personal favorite things!


I HIGHLY encourage you to buy locally made candles from your local artisans. You will be pleasantly surprised by the incredible scents you find! I’ve been buying locally all year from my candle dealer 😉 and I’ve not been disappointed! I personally dislike any flowery smelling candle, or artificial scent. I love Fresh Balsam is my favorite this time of year!


I know, I know. I put this on the Men’s Gift idea’s list from last week. BUTTTTT, this is a perfect gift for everyone! These are useful in Alaska and they’re just as useful in a warmer climate. My favorite parts of this specific style is the handle and the straw. I personally HAVE to have a straw to really hydrate. I prefer brand name on this one!!

Bluetooth headphones

Another item that was on my last blog these bluetooth headphones. I recently tried this exact set of Wireless Earbuds out and I really love them! So far they’ve held HOURS of music. Easy to charge, the box helps me keep track of them, and that price is everything! I’m picky about the way earbuds fit, these were a home-run! They came with a variety of sized bud covers. I love them for work in the garage. So far on my own set the battery has lasted for about 10hours of consistent music play! I’m super impressed!!!!


Leggings are a girls best friend, am I right?!?! ESPECIALLY ones with POCKETS! My personal favorite brand of leggings is Lululemon. Let’s be real….. I’m not wanting to spend that kind of money all the time. I discovered the brand CRZ Yoga on amazon this past spring. These side by side comparison look and feel just like Lululemon. I don’t say that lightly. I am very picky about clothing and these are about 1/4 of the cost of LL! Perfect gift for any of the ladies in your life!

Sperry Boots!

No doubt my Sperry Boots are my favorite shoes that I own! They’re light weight, keep your feet extremely warm! I love that they can be dressed up with a nice sweater and jeans. While they can also be dressed down with leggings and your favorite sweatshirt! There are MANY color options.

The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah

I know I’ve recommended this book before in another post. Goodness!!!! It is so wonderful.This was recommended to me by a very close friend and I loved every minute of this book! So many unforeseen things in this. I could not put it down! So eloquently written. Kristin has a large list of works that I am starting on immediately after the holidays.

Eucalyptus Aromatherapy Lotion

This Eucalyptus Lotion has been my personal favorite for years! I love everything in the Bath & Body works set! This truly is an aromatherapy. We all get especially dry in the winter months. Give the gift of NOT dry skin haha! I added an Amazon link here for this because it’s about the same cost but shipping is free with Amazon for prime members.

Gift Cards

A gift card and a cup of coffee are my two favorite gifts to give. Simple, they get to pick what they’d like. It’s all around a win! One gift card option that I like alot is restaurant gift cards. Doesn’t need to be to any where expensive by any means. One year for Christmas my Mom and Nana bought the kids gift cards to McDonalds. You know how many times that came in handy when Mommy did not have the time to cook or had a rough day?!? SO often I used that !!

If 2020 has taught us anything it’s that all that matters is the ones you call Family. Don’t break your bank account to provide a “great Christmas”. Always remember a gift from the heart is always appreciated by Friends and Family. Thank you so much for reading! I hope you found some useful inspiration!
