The holidays are in full effect and I couldn’t be more excited. It’s my favorite time of year for many reasons. I absolutely love how happy everybody is this time of year and I love to spoil my loved ones with gifts. Over the years, I’ve tried my best to become more intentional with my presents. Since I love giving presents, it’s sometimes hard not to buy all the things! I’m not a materialistic person so when it comes to buying presents for me, I love practical items. Items that will be used over and over.
Since I know a lot of people struggle with buying the perfect gift for their mom, sister, and wife, I have put together a few of my favorite things. These are all items that would make great presents for your loved ones.
AfterShokz Trekz Air Headphones
This year was the year of getting my body back and feeling good about where I am at physically. After having a baby last year, I was determined to get moving again. I started with light workouts and walking through my neighborhood daily. The only thing that got me through those lose walks which eventually turned into runs was a good set of headphones.
The AfterShokz Trekz Air headphones work perfectly because they are open ear headphones that go on the outside of your ear, not inside them which allows you to still here everything around you. The world isn’t completely shut out and I loved that while I was out on my workouts. I still need to be able to hear what’s going on around me and to be aware of my surroundings. These headphones make great gifts. Going into the new year, fitness is on everybody’s mind so buying them a pair of these beauties will help put their thoughts into actions.
Charles & Colvard Signature Halo Moissanite Necklace
Many moons ago, I was obsessed with costume jewelry. I would always make sure I had matching necklaces and earrings. Being able to match everything perfect was so much fun to me but as I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to really love simple pieces that make a big statement. A simple stone says so much more than gaudy jewelry which is why I love Charles and Colvard jewelry! Their Signature Halo Moissanite Necklace is every girls dream. If you’re unfamiliar with Moissanite, it is the world’s most brilliant gem. It’s a white gemstone with unique optical properties that outsparkles all others. It’s a gorgeous piece and the perfect staple necklace to add to any collection. Be sure to follow www.charlesandcolvard.com for seasonal savings on their pieces! They’re all so gorgeous.
Cheasapeake Bay Candles
As a candle hoarder, I can attest that not all candles are equal. Cheasapeake Bay Candles are truly one of a kind with soy wax candle that delivers an amazing fragrance throughout your house. Their Mind & Body Collection offers candles that are infused with 100% essential oils. Lighting our Cheasapeake Candles is part of our nightly routine every night.
Nothing beats going to bed with your room full of a relaxing scent to help put us to bed. One of my favorites is the serenity + calm lavender thyme candle. It includes essential oils of rosemary, eucalyptus, camphor, lavender, lavandin, cedarwood, fir needle, fir balsam, orange, patchouli, bergamot, and thyme. This scent creates a serene environment with soothing bergamot, rosemary, and lavender while touches of orange blossom, thyme, and patchouli enhance the
calming aromatherapy benefits. Candles are the perfect gift for any woman. I love that candles can be the main gift or an add on. No matter how you present it, there is no doubt the receiver will be stoked.
Finishing Touch Flawless
While some women don’t want to talk about this, I’ll be more than happy to spread the news. Women get peach fuzz and hair growth on their face. While we don’t want it there, there isn’t much you can do about it other than manage it with a razor. I had no idea my face had so much peach fuzz until I used my Finishing Touch Flawless. It is the perfect size tool that fits in the palm of your hand and it magically erases facial hair instantly and painlessly. It might sound crazy but you won’t nick or cut yourself with it. You can use it daily and expect no redness or bumps. The Finishing Touch Flawless has a built in light so you can see exactly what you’re dealing with. It’s the perfect size to keep in my purse so I always have it with me wherever I go. I’m adding it to my list for all the stockings I’m buying for, it’s the perfect stocking stuffer.
Fun x Fiorucci Women’s Sheer Crew Socks
My husband is all about crazy fun socks. He gets a new pair every holiday and it’s his “thing”. It’s fairly easy to find fun socks for men, but have you searched for them for women? It’s not nearly as easy to find which blows my mind away. I’m loving the Fun x Fiorucci Women’s Sheer Crew Socks. These socks are the perfect example that girls socks can be fun too! Neon red and white featuring sheer filament panels that let you show some skin. These are a great gift for the girl who has everything.

Cocktail Shaker and Glasses from ALDI
I’m obsessing over these glasses and cocktail shaker from ALDI and feel like every person own them! They made the perfect secret Santa gift. Admittedly, I didn’t start shopping at ALDI til this year. I’m mad at myself that it took so long to realize how amazing their deals are. I asked on my insta what deals to look out for and I had multiple people tell me to look at all their merchandise, not just food. I thought that was strange but once I saw all the amazing accessories, toys and decor, I instantly realized why everyone was telling me that.
These glasses and cocktail shaker were too cute to pass up. I’m not going to lie, I bought a two extra sets so I can make sure to keep one for myself. The Crofton Chef’s Collection Cocktail Shakers and Drinkware available for a limited time starting Dec. 19. Be sure to snag them before they’re gone. Learn more about them on the ALDI Website.
