Gifting the ladies in your lives

Considering we are only two weeks (I seriously can't believe it) away from Christmas, it's about time we all started our shopping if we haven't already!

If you are like me, you only have two gifts sitting on your floor but at least my list is complete - I just need to get to the stores and then poorly wrap all the gifts because my wrapping is a sight to see...... Let me tell you! I have so many friends who wrap these beautiful gifts with perfectly taped sides and add bows like Martha Stewart made them herself! My presents look like I had my friend's kids help me cut the paper and even tape the corners.....

For the mother, sister, girlfriend, cousin or BFF in your life, here are a few gift options for you to consider this year for that incredibly-hard-to-buy-for female in your life if you are struggling for ideas.

Want gift yourself or someone with something they will continue to buy? Let me introduce you to the only body lotion you will want to buy once you use this for a few weeks. Classy Chaos introduced me to it over a year ago and it is literally life changing during the winter.

Just the best body creme a girl will ever want - Kiehl's Creme de Corps for $30

Last year for a friend's , I gave her a few pairs of my absolute favorite underwear from Victoria's Secret - the Lacie Thong. While you may be thinking, "You bought your friend underwear?" Why, yes I did because these are one size fits all and when does that ever happen?? They come in a wide variety of colors (even ones with sparkles on them) and I truly believe they are for all body types.

The Lacie also comes in a hip hugger - 3 for $33.

Everyone could always use some protection for their electronic devices and there are so many stylish and creative options out there now. Kate Spade makes some of the cutest and fun iPhone and iPad cases for the professional girl that are totally work and play appropriate.

Keeps your iPad safe at all times - Kate Spade at Nordstrom for $85

Ladies - we can never have TOO many iphone cases - Kate Spade at Nordstrom $26 on sale

For the beauty product obsessed, she will love to try as many beauty products as she can at once and Birchbox is a fabulous idea. A year subscription will run cost $120 for 4-6 sample size products each month. Sometimes the boxes are themed like the Goop one I received where I absolutely loved each product and some are more seasonal - I can't wait to get my December shipment to see what I have!

Love checking my mailbox for this each month!

One of the many products I received and want to give to every girlfriend - Dr. Jart Beauty Balm at Sephora - $34

So what gifts did I miss that should be included? And, more importantly, what are you buying for friends and family this season?

I just bought a Kate Spade cover myself! You can get them on Amazon for half the price though- even more than half depending on the style!

I have a few presents bought but have to get more when I go back to WI. Also, I suck at wrapping too, my friends are amazing, it's not fair. Can we talk BB cream?
