Best Gifts For Her + Best Beauty Gifts

This is always my favorite gift guide to put together! It helps me come up with my own list and daydream about all the fabulous gifts. Below, you find the best gifts for her plus the best beauty gifts!

I combined Gifts For Her and Beauty Gifts into this one post a few years ago and everyone loves it!  There are tons of options to help you find what you’re looking for.  Send this post to someone who might need help buying you the perfect gift!  If any of the women on your gift love to travel, be sure to check out the Travel Gift Guide as well!

As always, I’ve included the best gifts in a range of prices. I’ve also tried to include options for different styles as well as classic gift options.  A few highlights on this list are Senreve tan tote in the collage. It’s a beautiful, classic bag option that’s a great size, convertible, and versatile. It comes in over 20 colors, too!  The Lee Radziwill bag from Tory Burch is destined to be a classic.  The black and brown are equally gorgeous and classic.  It is reminiscent of a bag that can cost 5 to 20 x what this one does.  You can’t go wrong with a handbag and these are top of my personal list!  

One more not to miss is this Bow Bag from Cuyana.  I received it as a gift two years ago from my mother and it is one of my most carried bags.  It is great for a night out and perfect for a cocktail party.  You can just slip it over your wrist or take out the slim gold chain and Voila!  You can easily manage your cocktail and plate from the buffet!

If you’re a shoe lover, snag these chic silver sneakers or a pair of gorgeous heelsThese boots are a style staple and another item that is top of my personal list.  They come in three calf sizes for a custom fit!  Genius! 

Anything personalized is a great gift.  This beautiful camel tone on tone scarf is a 40% off with free monogramming as is this travel organizer. This gorgeous black hide clutch is part of that sale as well and can be monogrammed and also comes in camo (which is always a winner for me!) There is a full post of personalized gifts here and many are a part of that sale!

 I’ve included beautiful of jewelry options. You can shop my Little Luxuries Gift Guide with more luxurious, fine jewelry here.  In this gift guide, I love the “love” earrings and statement necklaceThese sparkling earrings are so versatile and a fantastic price for the look!  I love bracelets and this geometric cuff is a beauty.

One the beauty front, I’ve included one of my favorite beauty tools that I use almost daily.  Designed to stimulate collage and allow products to really penetrate our skin, it truly works and it is a great gift!  I pack it for every trip, it’s a staple in my nightly skincare routine. This is a super cool microcurrent, mini-face lift device.  You can really tell the difference as you use it and the effect is cumulative.  It’s like a workout for your face in 1 minute!

For the true beauty devotee, this amazing facial oil/serum is a decadent gift!  It is one of my favorite products.  This eye shadow palette is a great gift for all ages.  It’s filled with the best neutral colors.   

My favorite travel hairdryer is also another great gift. The Dyson hairdryer is also very popular. It’s on my list this year!  You can find all of my beauty posts here. Find all of the gift ideas for her and beauty gifts in the boutiques below!
