Oh happy day! After lots of hard work and scouring both brick and mortar stores and the internets for the best of the best holiday gifts to give this year, we’ve put the finishing touches on our annual Making Lemonade Gift Guides! I like to launch these Thanksgiving week not because I’m trying to rush the holidays, but simply because I’ve found purchasing gifts early relieves stress and allows you to actually enjoy the season.
Plus, it gives you a chance to send a big ‘ol HINT HINT email to the hubs. Or share on Facebook. Or tweet or pin. Or Snapchat. Or however you kids are sharing things these days. 😉
After much consideration, here’s the first of our annual holiday gift guides this year: favorite gifts for the women in your life! Whether it’s your mom, sis, best friend, daughter, or wife here’s 25 gifts I’m personally coveting this year (and according to my friends, they are, too.) While everyone is different, I think you’ll find something for every woman on your list: the exerciser, the mom boss, the hibernator, the coffee lover, the glam one, the traveler, the hot mess mom (me), the organized one, and anything in between!

25 Holiday Gift Ideas for Women
Portable chargers are a must-have while traveling and this one is super pretty!
I personally checked this out in person yesterday and it’s as amazing as it looks. It’s reversible depending on what texture or mood you prefer.
I mean, could this matching mug set BE any more adorable?
Ahhhhhh seeing my name on the cover of this book still makes my heart flutter! It launches December 5th but you can pre-order it now. It makes a great gift for anyone who needs organization in their life, and it’s perfectly priced as a stocking stuffer too.
A copper KitchenAid mixer?! ALL THE HEART EYES! I’m hoping Santa puts this one under my tree this year, I’ve been a very good girl who desires to finally learn to bake. 😉
Our Nespresso maker is amazing, but at some point in the near future we want to graduate to the real thing– a DeLonghi Machine. For those who really love coffee and the ritual of making and enjoying the perfect cup.
These little leather snaps actually organize your cords by snapping around earbuds and cables such as your phone charger. I love their stylish simplicity.
Everyone loves a touch of leopard. I ordered this gorgeous clutch and it’s as perfect in person as it looks online. Beautifully elevates simple outfits like jeans and a top OR adds a chic touch to your little black dress.
Gold hexagons? Yes please! Simple studs can make a huge statement and these simply radiate sophistication.
This tote is a duplicate for other WAY pricier versions. It comes in this classy camel color as well as a gorgeous burgundy. Plus the price for a super roomy tote like this is on point!
What I love about Yurbuds (aside from the amazing price) is that they offer smaller earpieces for women and if those still don’t fit, they’ll work with you to find the right size. Finally, I can run without jamming earbuds back in every few minutes.
I purchased these over the summer and they are glorious! Mirrored sunglasses look great on anyone and go with just about everything, too.
If you exercise outdoors, the FlipBelt is a fantastic tool to have on hand. There’s been a series of break-ins even in the relatively safe parking lots of local trails in my area, so instead of leaving a purse in the car I now use my FlipBelt to carry my i.d., keys, and mace. When running, I stick my iPhone inside so my hands are free, and I use it for my keys while biking. It’s a really good idea to always have i.d. on hand when exercising, and this does the trick.
These simple cuff bracelets come in a variety of messages and make great gifts.
Everyone needs a sporty chic sneaker, and Gazelles come in a variety of colors so everyone can find a hue they love.
Buffalo check pajamas? Um, GET IN MY STOCKING.
Those pom-poms! That faux fur! The softness! This is a gift destined to be a huge hit.
The Gramercy leather strap watch is classy, timeless, and I WANT ONE!
If you have a women in your life who travels, the jewelry portfolio will allow them to easily pack jewelry stress and tangle free.
Yes, that’s a diffuser bracelet. 🙂 Some of the stones can absorb essential oils, so you drip a drop onto the stone and it’ll diffuser that scent all day. Stress Away, anyone? (:: raises hand ::)
Soft fuzzy slippers that release calming herbal scents. Did someone just read my fantasy wish list?
This has been on my wish list for like 3 years and I’m still waiting. Which means my husband clearly doesn’t read my blog. 😉
Rose. Gold. Luggage. It’s safe to say you’ll instantly know which is your bag on the carousal at the airport!
My philosophy? MARBLE ALL THE THINGS. Including your laptop.
This gorgeous bracelet is under $100 but looks like a high-end piece for someone special in your life.
I know, I’m a sucker or initials and monograms. This would be adorable with all your kids’ initials, or you and your husbands, or your BFFs… whatever and whomever you want to keep close to your heart.
Do you see what’s special about this phone case? It has lighting around the edge for snapping the perfect selfie! I should probably have put this on the teen gift guide list instead, but what’s stopping you from a little selfie fun too?
