Fabulous Finds: Holiday Gift Guide. . . For the Girls!

I know, girls are the easiest to shop for. There are just so many things girls love! With guys, it's a whole other story. But in case you're stuck on finding some fabulous gifts for your girlfriends, sisters, cousins, mothers, in-laws, any of the women in your life. . . here's some help!

*For your own Christmas list. . . some gorgeous home bar furniture from CSN stores. If you have a bar or counter, there are SO many options here and shipping is always free!

*For the music lover. . . Norah Jones' new album, '. . . Featuring'!
I love this album, because it's a collection of all of Norah's collaborations with other artists from the past decade. There are songs on this album that please pretty much any musical taste, because of the wide range of styles featured on this CD. Norah sings with Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, and Ray Charles, as well as the Foo Fighters and Outkast. The album is mellow, beautiful, and would make a great gift for any lover of music!

*For absolutely anyone. . . A pair of warm and snuggly mitts from the Notorious Knits Etsy shop. For $18, you can get some hand-knitted mitts that are practical for the winter weather as well as thoughtful! Her shop features a whole array of stylish winter wear such as cowls, scarves, and leg warmers.

Here's my favorite pair. . . the Kaleidoscope of Colors Mitts! Beautiful!

*For the chatty friend or family member. . . The Box Girls games to create great conversations!
These adorable little games are actually boxes of questions designed to stimulate conversations and stories for families, girls nights, date nights, really any occasion! The boxes with the little bows are so cute you wouldn't even need to gift-wrap them!
Tons of different themed boxes are available. They're perfect for family nights, or as a way to get to know anyone better. These would make awesome stocking stuffers! Since the first box was sold, the Box Girls have raised over $85,000 for charity. Talk about Christmas spirit!

*For your stylish friend. . . makeup with super cute packaging that is also really reasonably priced! Hard Candy makeup is sold at Wal-Mart, and the average price of each product is around $7. The makeup looks so cool and edgy, any teenager would love to carry it around in her purse!

Hard Candy features lots of unique products with cool names, like these:
-Big Girls Don't Cry Waterproof Mascara
-Glamoflauge Heavy-Duty Concealer
-Lip Tattoo- Lip Stain and Breath Freshening Gloss

With the beautiful packaging, it definitely looks like you spent more on this makeup than you actually did. My favorite product of the ones I tried is the Mouthing Off Sheer Lip Shine. It has really beautiful color, and it's thick and lasts for a long time!

*For the fashionista that you want a really nice gift for. . . a Shabby Apple dress!
Oh my gosh, these dresses are adorable! I love to search around their website and look at all their beautiful designs. I can't even count how many of their dresses I would love to own!

Right now they're offering free holiday shipping! Here are just a few of the many things I love about Shabby Apple:
-Their dresses are modest!
-They're designed for real women who have curves, and they have a really cool feature on their website that lets you shop by body type.

-They're committed to helping women around the world, and they donate 5% of their net sales to charities.
-The quality of their fabrics and details are top-notch!

*For your travel buddy. . . A gorgeous travel bag from Apple & Bee!
Apple & Bee makes absolutely beautiful, high-quality bags from certified organic cotton, bamboo silk, genuine leather, and other earth-friendly materials. I absolutely love my beauty bag! It's the perfect size to fit everything, and the detachable plastic bag with lots of compartments is a great feature.

Apple & Bee sells bags in all different sizes and price ranges, from totes and overnight bags to coin purses and small makeup bags. Don't they have such beautiful fabric designs? Any product from Apple & Bee would make such a special gift for someone you love!
*For the vintage gal. . . Handmade, vintage-inspired jewelry from the Shabby La Rose Etsy shop! There are so many fun finds in this shop. The prices are really reasonable, and you can find fabulous vintage-looking earrings, cocktail rings, necklaces, hairpins, clutches, barrettes, even Christmas ornaments!
