Gift Guides are back! I'm not exaggerating when I say I start looking forward to Gift Guides in, oh, October. And really, I start planning even earlier than that, saving products to Instagram, my inbox, Pinterest, and as bookmarks until December, when I go through every single pick to find the best of the best. This year, I'm doing Gift Guides a bit differently. In the past, we've dedicated each post to an entire personality category (think, "What to Get For Your Friend Who's Always Entertaining and Cooking."). The only problem with those guides, was that they were both limited and overwhelming. I wanted to feature so many more types of recipients and make each guide even more curated. This week, I'm launching a different Gift Guide every single day, with painstakingly made selections that range in price so you can tailor it to your budget and your recipient (keep an eye out for our under $30 gift guide!). Today I'm kicking things off with one of my personal favorites—what to get for your best girlfriend or mom—so you can still take advantage of Cyber Monday deals. Happy gifting! x

Kourt Aspen Coat ($220): Who else could pull off a pink fuzzy coat like your most fashionable friend? This oversized iteration is cool and, perhaps more importantly, super cozy. It's also one of our all-time bestsellers, but we've restocked it in the Shop specifically for this Guide! 

Topshop Boxy Diamond Bag ($60): Fashion girls are all about a mini, structured bag right now, and this glitzy option is perfect for a night out (maybe New Year's?). 

WAYF Puff Sleeve Top ($98): This velvet top has all the makings of an it-girl item: puffed sleeves, a high neckline, and a rich meridian blue hue. We imagine her dressing this down with light-blue denim or pairing it with a sparkly eye shadow for a cool holiday look.

Pineapple Collaborative Olive Oil ($28): This California-grown organic olive oil blend, which comes in three color options (so you can select her favorite!), would look stunning in any kitchen—but most importantly, it's some of the best we've tasted! 

Nothing Fancy Cookbook ($20): Spoiler–our Of the Month Club pick for December, Alison Roman's cookbook, Nothing Fancy, is already a staple in our kitchens and is a fail-safe gift for any chef in your life (that you'll be able to reap the benefits of at their next dinner party!).

Falcon Enamel Bake Set ($115): This five-piece bake set is just begging for a turkey, cobbler, or lasagna—which, for the record—would look so classy (read: Instagram friendly) against the white with blue trim. 

Artboard 1 copy 2

Ruminate Magazine Subscription ($50): This magazine, filled with beautiful art, stories, and poetry, is designed to “teach us to slow down, to listen, and to pay attention.” It's the perfect, more mindful alternative to a Friday night Netflix binge. 

NYTT Vilnius Pullover ($48) and Moscow Joggers ($48): Update her collection of college tees and sweats with this super-soft matching set from the Shop. 

Rainbow Wall Charm ($34): This rainbow wall charm would look cute in just about any home (and looks way more expensive than it is).

Artboard 1 copy 3

Wireless Headphone Converter ($45): Help her avoid the nightmare that is bringing the wrong headphones on a long flight (we've all been there) by gifting her this wireless transmitter for Bluetooth headphones.

Montana Genuine Shearling Slipper ($78): These super-soft, luxurious slippers will help her feel at home no matter where she is (and will pair perfectly with a hotel robe). 

The Best Stainless Steel Straw ($18): This reusable straw comes in a stylish, compact steel case, making it perfect for her to toss in her carry-on and go.

Custom Cat Portraits ($35): We're an office full of cat-lovers, and any of us would be thrilled to receive one of these custom portraits of our pet. They're a sweet yet stylish way to give her furry friend a focal point in her home. 

Wellness Lover Dog Treats ($15): We know we’re the key demographic for these (hello, lifestyle blog based in L.A.), but even we laughed at (with!) the Turmeric Latte treats. 

Wild One Triangle Dog Toy ($28): This minimalistic dog toy would make playing tug-of-war with her pup a lot more, dare we say, chic?

Artboard 1 copy 5

L'Occitane Lavender Harvest Foaming Bath ($39): The perfect gift is one that she’ll use countless times and is too luxurious to buy for herself. We’d say this checks all the boxes!

Victoria Beckham Lid Luster in ‘Midnight’ ($36): This shimmery eye shadow is gorgeous, with stylish packaging to boot. She's guaranteed to reach for this on New Year's Eve (and all the nights out that follow).

Dr. Dennis Gross Facial Steamer ($149) The skincare product she never knew she needed (and pretty much eliminates the need for professional facials if she’s diligent…)

Artboard 1 copy 6

Ulla Hydration Reminder ($30): For the dehydration-prone (aren't we all?), this device attaches to any water bottle and uses smart detection sensors to remind her to take a sip of water at least once per hour. 

Marble Weights ($100): These weights (roughly 1 kilogram, or 2.3 pounds) are chic enough to keep on display, where they'll serve as a regular reminder to incorporate strength-training into her routine. 

Foam Roller Water Bottle ($49): This product seamlessly combines two of the most essential exercise accessories into one, so she can stay hydrated and limber (plus, she can fill the bottle with hot water to turn it into a heated roller!).

Artboard 1 copy 7

National Parks Alphabet Print ($50): This print is for the lady in your life who would rather hit the trails than bottomless brunch, come Sunday morning. Consider this both a piece of decor and a travel bucket list. 

Supergoop Everyday SPF Kit ($32): If she spends a lot of time outside, she probably already knows how important sun safety is. Gift her this kit from one of my personal favorite sunscreen brands to protect her from harsh rays!

Portable Fireplace Candle ($65): For snowy or rainy days when going outside isn't an option, this candle allows her to bring the campfire indoors.

Artboard 1 copy 8

Cupcakes and Cashmere Planner ($10): Help her stay organized with a new planner for 2020. It's borderline impossible for us to pick a favorite from our own line at Target, but we're sure she'll love this one in classic pink.

Dripkit Set ($58): This set makes brewing her morning cup of coffee a no-brainer, all without sacrificing quality or style.

Blue Light Filtering Frames ($40): If she spends most days in front of her computer, these glasses can help reduce the strain caused by screen time, all while making her look like a total sophisticate. (Side note: Jess waited till Shopbop's Cyber Monday sale to scoop these up this morning!)
