Your Ultimate Guide to Holiday Gifting

Every year, I tend to procrastinate purchasing presents until the last minute, and it ends up being a mess of stress and holiday shoppers. This year, however, I pulled myself together and am already done with 90% of my holiday shopping! The best part is that I did most of it online and stress free -- cue confetti! 

This is also great news for you because in my spare time, I pulled together a whooping 41 of my favorite potential presents out there, that are sure to impress every kind of gal in your life.

All you have to do is sit back and scroll until you spot the perfect present! 
Ready. Set. Go.

I love the vintage look of this lipstick holder from Anthropologie. It would be gorgeous sitting atop any vanity.

The limited edition design is so festive and this is a great value for a quality 10 piece set. 

I live for Rifle and Co designs and this makeup bag is the perfect size for that on-the-go gal. 

So beautiful and meaningful, jetsetters can scratch off each place they've been like a lottery ticket! What world traveller wouldn't want to have a display tracking their adventures? 

There's just something about instant printing that makes people happy. Trust me, the girl with the Polaroid is the hit of any holiday party! 

These designs are incredibly beautiful and a calendar keeps your giftee thinking about your thoughtfulness all year. 
Side Note: I may or may not have already ordered one for my mom to wrap up for me-- shhh

Functional and chic is a perfect combination. 

A purse that charges my phone? Yes please. Your bestie can text you all day long and never run out of battery! Win-Win. 

Such a cute design and who couldn't use an extra charger? I'm currently in the market for one to keep plugged in at work!

These adorable vintage looking bookends will help your gal pal always keep her most loved stories close at hand. 

Clever literary inspired drink recipes are sure to impress your favorite English Major. 

Mindy Kaling is awesome and her latest book is absolutely hilarious with equal parts anecdotes and solid advice.

Game changer. For the girl who's never without her DSLR camera, this is the perfect present! It instantly transports photos from camera to phone using the card's wifi. 

Side Note: I bought mine on Treat Yo Self 2015 and I love it.  

So colorful and bright, this blanket is sure to inspire any artist.

Ughh It's such a dream of mine to learn calligraphy and this kit is beyond beautiful. Perfect for the girl who loves to send hand written notes.  

There is no better place to find a beautiful vintage cookbook than Bonnie Slotick Cookbooks in New York. You're sure to find a hidden gem that will delight any culinary wizard in your life.  

Side Note: You can never go wrong with Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Find out why I love her here

This pretzel pendant from Food52 is so gorgeous and whimsical. It's definitely a must have statement piece for your favorite foodie.

I can't say this enough: Rifle Paper Co has my heart. I just can't get enough of these stunning designs. This beautiful recipe box is enough to make any chef move from saving recipes on her iphone, to copying them down with classic pen and paper. 

These witty pencils are so adorable, they might even have your giftee thinking twice before lending one to their forgetful coworker. 

The perfect mix of chic and cheek, this business card holder would be a beautiful addition to any organized desk. 

These stunning notebooks will keep your bestie smiling... even in that 8:30am meeting.

This is one of my favorite Birchbox limited edition boxes! It's full of elegant home accents, like a gorgeous vase, mirror and candle. This is for the girl who, like me, believes finishing touches are the best part of any room.

These adorable animal drink stirrers are the perfect cherry-on-top party accessory your soirĂ©e loving friend didn't know she needed.

You can't go wrong with a cocktail recipe book. It's pretty enough to sit on her coffee table and useful enough to be open on her bar. 

The perfect present for the girl who styles her bar cart with the changing seasons. 

Is there a better combination than candy and cocktails? Questionable. 

(Side Note: My sister and I just checked out Sugarfina's Columbus Circle Pop-up-- It's well worth a visit for some sweet treats or if you're looking to build the perfect candy bento box!)

What's better than a pair of Bauble Bar Earrings? A set of three of course! 

I am in love with my pair of Gold Glitter Kate Spade Keds. Your giftee is sure to win best dressed at all the holiday parties. 

The. softest. scarf. ever. It's amazing how something so cozy can instantly dress up any cold weather ensemble! I just bought it and I'm in love-- #noregrets

Although it might be difficult to display an actual cake on this stand, the adorableness of Billie the Terrier (Kidston's actual dog), will have any giftee saying, "I'll make cupcakes instead." 

I'll have my cake with a side of whimsy, please. 

Possibly my favorite food blogger, Izy Hossak is the baking wiz behind Top With Cinnamon. At only 19, her recipes are incredible, and her cookbook is something any baker would love to get their hands on! 

This incredible smelling sea salt soap will have your giftee dreaming of the waves even through the snow. 

A beautiful nautical nod for any outfit (winter or summer)!

Nothing says cozy and preppy like a set of adorable new holiday PJs.

And that's my round up! I'm impressed if you made it to the end. 
As a bonus, just for you, I'll share three pieces of my best gifting advice:

1. Don't stress.
2. It really is the thought that counts.
3. When all else fails... gift cards are nice too. 

Happy Hunting!
