2021 Gift Guide for Her

November 10, 2020 (updated August 29, 2022)

It’s gift guide season, BW-BW-BW-BWAAAAAAAA! This year we put together 5 STACKED guides (women’s, men’s, teens’, home and beauty). One of my favorite things about these guides is that we offer gift options in 3 different price ranges, so you can shop within your own budge. A new guide will be dropping every day this week—be sure to check back!

The Women’s Gift Guide is one of my favorites to put together. Mostly because, I basically soup it up with everything I want or have been loving this year, lol. Feel free to bookmark or forward to your boo so they know what to get you!

For example, let’s start out with EVOLVh’s new Dream Gel. This makes a fantastic stocking stuffer for anyone with curly or textured hair that’s on the drier side. This creamy gel applies like an oil-based product, so it’s strongest suit is conditioning hair. It also works to define, control and smooth too. This no-crunch gel is better suited for more coarse hair over fine hair IMO, and will be a match made in heaven for people looking to condition as well as define. 

The oil-based texture also makes it super budget-friendly—a little goes a long way, and the frizz control is top-notch. Plus, the scent, like all EVOLVh products, is killer without being too much.

And, if you are looking to gift something more skincare focused, who doesn’t love a good skincare tool?! For this, I’m obsessed with all things Jenny Patinkin. More specifically, her Cryo Glow Globes + Dermaplaning Bundle.

Not only are the Cryo Globes pink (😍), but they also work to take down unwanted eye puffiness, reduce redness and bring down inflammation. Plus these glass, curved-shaped globes fit directly into my eye sockets, hugging all the spots, so essentially I can do the most and the least at the same time. (These feel so good!)

This bundle also comes with her Skin Perfectors, which combine a stainless steel safety blade and surplus wheat straw bioplastic to create a tool you can use on your entire face to exfoliate, remove peach fuzz and enhance product absorption. It also helps makeup wear smoother too! WARNING: Once you start, you won’t stop! 😂

Lastly, if you are looking to give the gift of ethical clothing, this year I fell in love with Tradlands. Check out their Shelter Cardigan, which I basically haven’t taken off since the day it arrived. Love the chunky, wide knit look with minimal buttons. It’s super cozy and easy to layer. Perfect for lounging around the house, Sunday brunch or the nearest bonfire hangout. I have this in Burnt Sienna.
