Gift Guide: Lovely Ladies + GIVEAWAY!

header collage The woman in your life deserves to have that feeling she used to get when she was a kid on Christmas morning.  Most of us moms think about what we want for Christmas last, if at all.  Before that is EVERYONE else.    SO here’s a glimpse into what women really want.

Apparently all the cool, fit moms are WILD for Orange Theory, so a membership and pre-paid child care would make many moms the happiest ever.  If you paired that with some fab Lululemon workout wear, you may just win the hubby of the year award!

I would still love that Moon and Lola necklace and the stackable eternity bands for each child from my 2013 gift guide for her. In addition to that, I always ask for anything monogrammed, a membership to J.Crew’s jewelry of the month club, a maid that comes weekly, and pre-paid monthly facials.  Realistically, I actually need snow gear: Boots, pants, accessories.  I’m really hoping this winter brings lots of snow!  That’s not too much to ask for, right?  LOL!  Here are a few other items to make every lady in your life swoon.

gypsy soul

Gypsy Soul to Blame Tank $16.99

Love the color and love this under a long cardigan and over leggings.  It’s a grown-up version of the graphic T that’s super hot in the streets for the tweenie boppers.

photo Light Reflector

Folding Photo Light Reflector $17.49

“I don’t get it. Did my hair get flat? Did I stumble into some bad lighting?”  You will never have to ask that question again with this little gadget!  Cher should have totally had one of these!!

Aldo bag

Enroelid Clutch $27.99

OMG!  Yes!  Love love love this jeweled clutch.  Love the price too.


Fleece Headband with Speakers $29.99

Function and warmth make it easier to take a winter run or jam down the slopes.

nordic cups

Nordic Elk Measuring Cups $34.00 Anthro

I had the most adorable ceramic deer measuring cups that someone… you know who you are… broke a few years back.  These would be the perfect, unbreakable replacement.  And they really look adorable on a countertop.

Trapper hat

Patterned Knit Trapper Hat $34

I’m really digging the tassels and the ball and the bright colors.

apres ski collage

Apre Ski Clutch $34.95

Clutch bag in imitation leather and pile with an embossed text motif on one side. Top zip, detachable wrist strap, and one inner compartment. Satin lining. Size 10 1/4 x 15 3/4 in.

This is perfect for anyone!  Even the gal that loves to sit by the fire in the lodge instead of shredding it.

cheese knives

Langholm Cheese Knives $36.00

I found a single app fork similar to this set at an antique shop, I love the feathers.  Perfect for any occasion.

braceletCompliment. Gratitude Bracelet $38

OK, THESE are something everyone needs.  If it’s for your baby mama, get her one with each of the kids birthstones.  If she’s your wife, get her one with your birthstone.  And if she’s your baby, get her one with her birthstone.  You cannot go wrong.  Compliment was started by a local teacher.  Each item is handmade with love and  even gives a compliment with the gift.  Love that.  They have so many adorable things, you really need to shop Compliment.

glovesRuffle Cuff Gloves $38.00

Keep those hands warm and stylish with these ruffle gloves.

Lulu Sweat liner

 Lululemon Sweat Happens Liner Bag $42

Don’t cross-contaminate your sweaty gym clothes with everything else in your purse. Keep your stuff stink- and sweat-free.

I mean duh, no one likes their sweat to mingle with their non-sweaty items.

snow tights

Athleta Power Lift Tight $89

Finally, your winter training gets a super-warm, plush tight with a streamlined look thanks to compression paneling and a high-waisted design.

I have been on a mission to find some cold weather leggings to keep me warm and looking cute.  Love the soft feel and the thickness.

dressTart Dress available at Button Up Boutique in Folsom $134

This local shop has so many adorable items!  This dress is something she probably won’t buy for herself.  The asymmetrical neckline, dolman sleeve, and the stripes that go this way and that add up to a flattering and comfy look!

Fancy TOMSFancy Toms Wedges $165

This whole outfit is crazy cute!  But I am LOVING these black, embossed, suede Toms wedges.  They are available at Krazy Mary’s in Sacramento.

snow bootsSorel, Conquest Carly Boot $219.95

Earthy hues dominate a rawhide-lace boot designed with a full-length gusset for seamless weather protection. A top toggle and side strap create a custom fit, while a natural rubber sole serves up ground-hugging traction.

Who says you can’t be cute and cozy?  These boots are the perfect way to accomplish both ofd this things!  Wear it with the Athleta tights, and that trapper hat, those ruffled gloves, and the fleece headband with speakers and you are ready to rock the cold weather.  Just be sure to add a top and a jacket.
