Whether you are shopping for a Christmas or Hanukkah gift, or just looking for something to say "I care" to a loved one, this list has items sure to make her smile! Here are some of my favorite products, plus a few that look promising (and are based on products I already own)!!!
Home Spa Essentials
One of my favorite ways to destress has been to turn ordinary activities into luxurious ones! These products are the perfect way to elevate self care.

I love making shower time special, especially since it is sometimes some of the only self care I get during the day. These essential oil shower steamers certainly have helped! If the woman you are shopping for is a busy mom like me, this is a perfect gift to help her unwind!

This Zentyme bath pillow is ergonomic, and super plush! Getting this for the woman in your life says "take some time just for you!". This pillow is so comfortable, I have considered replacing my regular pillows with this one (I'm only half kidding)!
Anything from The Savannah Bee Company!
If you have been following me for awhile, you know my extended family lives in Savannah, and the Savannah Bee Company is a stop every time we visit. Luckily, Amazon has started carrying their amazing products. You may wonder, why not Burt's Bees? 1. I like Savannah Bee Company products much better, and 2. Savannah Bee Company is a smaller company than Burt's Bees. I absolutely love every product I've tried from this store, and I know the person you are shopping for will, too. Here are just a few of their amazing products!
One of my favorite self care routines is a nice cup of tea in the evening, and Mighty Leaf is by far my favorite brand. This Ginger Twist tea is soothing and delicious. Plus, the box lasts for what seems like forever! And that means plenty to share with family or guests!
Essie, by far, is my favorite nail polish brand. And Angora Cardi, the color seen below, is one of my favorite colors. The perfect all year round pink, it is just bright enough for summer and just muted enough for fall and winter. And if you don't believe me, take it from social media! Angora Cardi has even been the most popular color on Pinterest, at least according to this Glamor Magazine piece (they also show how the color looks on multiple skin tones.... it works for everyone). It is a perfect stocking stuffer for the women in your life. Pair it with essie's All in One base, top, and strengther for a full manicure at home, with only two products! (Trust me, it is the perfect time saver for busy moms like me!)
Great Wardrobe Staples
I bought this top in September, and it has quickly become one of my favorites! It is comfortable, perfectly oversized (get true size, or perhaps go up one size if you have any concerns), and stylish. It also comes in several different colors. I've always been reluctant to shop for clothing online, but once I started, I found it to be a great way to find new pieces for my wardrobe without the hassle of going to the store!
Another favorite piece, I bought this dress in September as well. My first statement to my husband was "I want this in every color". It is beautiful and very, very comfortable. Plus, it has pockets! It runs on the big size, so get true size, or maybe one size smaller.
Okay, so I did too much shopping online this fall! I got this dress recently as well, and it is beautiful and stylish. I can't wait for COVID to be over so I can wear it on my date nights, or to parties! It also has pockets, which is always an amazing addition.
I'm a huge Kate Spade fan, and only just found out Amazon carries some of their products! While we all carry cell phones now, there is something really special about a classic analogue watch. This one will go with almost any outfit, and is sure to make the woman you are shopping for smile!
Kate Spade Bangles
I have a bunch of Kate Spade bangles, and love them. So when I found some online, I knew I had to share them with readers! They come in three colors, and are super trendy. These will make for perfect stocking stuffers, or a regular gift. They pair perfectly with both casual and dress clothes, too.
For the Kitchen
While kitchenware is not the right gift for everyone, I know I love receiving it! My family is big into cooking (how could we not be with a husband who was a chef for so many years), and these are some of our favorite kitchen products/appliances.
This mortar and pestle is gorgeous and super heavy. It makes for a functional decorations; we use it for grinding sesame seeds for OIT, but it could be used for any herb or spice for both cooking or creating cocktails.
Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker, Sterilizer, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Steamer, Saute, Yogurt Maker, and Warmer, 6 Quart, 14 One-Touch Programs
My Instant Pot is a weeknight meal lifesaver. I use it constantly, and can't recommend it enough. If the person you are shopping for hasn't jumped on the Instant Pot wagon yet, this is a must purchase! This is the model I have, and I absolutely love it.
The Amazon Holiday Gift Guide is recommending a newer model of the Instant Pot that does way more than mine does. I wish this version was available when I got mine, because it has an unbelievable number of great functions. From replacing your old slow cooker to serving as an air frier and dehydrator, this Instant Pot will replace a ton of other small kitchen appliances.
Given my child has food allergies, we do a ton of baking. And baking has become so much easier with our Kitchen Aid stand mixer. There is a reason these are so popular; they are just that good. While this is a pricier gift, it is one that is absolutely worth it!
Another trendy kitchen item that is worth the splurge. Le Creuset cookware is amazing for a number of things, and we use our dutch oven regularly!
For the Busy Mom
Shopping for someone who is always on the go? These gifts are perfect!
We love our Yeti tumbler. It is oversized (so plenty of room for lots of caffeine), and heavy duty (so, perfect for a toddler mom!).
purlisse BB Tinted Moisturizer Cream SPF 30 - BB Cream for All Skin Types - Smooths Skin Texture, Evens Skin Tone - 1.4 Ounce
If the woman you are shopping for complains about never having time for makeup, but still loves makeup, this BB cream is the perfect fit. It is high coverage and provides substantial moisture, without causing my skin to breakout. It is, by far, my favorite BB cream ever!
Making running quick errands or going to the gym even simpler with this beautiful Kate Spade keychain wallet! Just big enough for all the essentials, while small enough to carry along with car keys!
I love my Kate Spade wallet, and this one is similar to the one I carry. This wallet makes for a perfect, higher end gift.
Candles are super popular in our home, and Amazon happens to have a number of great options. Here are two ultra popular brands that make for perfect gifts!
I love crafting, and these products have made it that much easier (and in turn, more fun!). These are perfect for the crafty person in your life!
These acrylic paint pens are perfect for fine details on glass, canvas, rocks, wood, or any other base. They are easy to use and come in a variety of great colors.
Coloring is one of my favorite relaxation/mindfulness activities. There is something soothing about creating a masterpiece from a white piece of paper with lines. One of my favorite tools for coloring are colored pencils. And these aren't your kids' Colored Pencil Set! They come in a variety of beautiful colors, from metallics, to bolds, muted tones, and more. Purchase with an adult coloring book for a relaxing activity for whoever you are gifting to.
Gel pens also work great for coloring projects! If you are looking for a brand recommendation, Arteza products are ones I've tested, owned, and love!
Admittedly I don't own a cricut... yet. But I've been sold on how great they are, and added this one to my Christmas list (you might just be seeing some projects from me next year using it!). This #1 best seller has an astounding 5 star rating with over 11,000 reviews. You read that right! Perfect for DIY projects of all kinds, the crafty mama (or teacher, or auntie, or anyone) in your life is sure to love this as a gift!
