Gift giving can be a lot like a middle school dance—stressful, awkward, kinda sweaty, and might leave you crying all alone in the corner. Wait- that didn’t happen to everyone? ANYWAYS- the point is giving gifts is difficult, and giving the right gift to the right woman is even harder. Therefore, I wrote this boutique gift guide to help you find the perfect gift for all the women in your life!
For the Glam One - All that Glitters Teacup Dress
This is my boutique’s best selling dress! I think it’s because this dress can be worn to so many different types of events- holiday parties, new year’s, birthdays, prom, graduation, etc. One thing’s for sure- if she’s looking for a head-turning outfit to celebrate a special day in her life, she will adore this dress. It sparkles like nothing I’ve ever seen before, with the main hues pulling through being white and gold with a hint of pink and green reflex. The cut is also incredibly flattering!
For the One Who Only Wears Black -
The After Party Lace Chiffon Gown
Glitz and glam are not every girl’s thing, and that’s perfectly okay! Some of my favorite looks to wear involve all black everything. The After Party Maxi Gown is a unique spin on the classic ‘Little Black Dress.’ It’s made of chiffon, so she can easily wear it to a formal event or just a night out on the town! If she’s my height (5’5) or shorter, she’ll want to pair it with heels. Otherwise, if she’s on the taller side already, she can probably get away with flats or wedges. Depending on her body type, a bra might be optional. Otherwise, I’d recommend a stick-on bra, which you can find pretty much anywhere. This dress is also great for women who might be sensitive about their stomach area. It cinches at just the right spot, and gives the illusion of a smaller waist line.
For the One Who Can’t be Bothered - Lovely Lounge Pocketed Set
I have a confession to make. I may have gone several weekends without taking off this Lounge Set. And I have 0 regrets about that. I sleep in this set, I do chores in this set, and I watch copious amounts of Netflix in this set. If your female friend is in the same boat, definitely consider gifting this to her! The gray fleece-like material is so comfy. Plus, both the top and bottoms have a drawstring waist, so no matter her shape, this set will find a way to make the magic happen.
For the Conservative One - Sunday Morning Turtle Neck Sweater
For women who like to cover up, finding cute clothes can be a real struggle. Although I’ve never been much of a turtle neck wearer myself, I couldn’t help but fall in love with our Sunday Morning Sweater, and I know she will, too! She can easily pair this sweater with leggings or jeans for a “no fuss” weekend outfit. The black and white marble detailing is just too adorable to pass up!
For the “Always Cold” One- Teddy Sherpa Zip Hoodie
I’ve been seeing these Sherpa jackets everywhere, and for good reason! They are so incredibly warm and cozy. I specifically sourced this one for my store because the quality was simply unmatched. The material is the softest out of all the jackets I sampled, and the oversized fit and hood makes it especially comfy. If she lives in the Midwest like I do, this jacket should be a staple in her closet for sure!
For the Feminist - "Not Your Babe" Cotton Tee
As soon as I saw this shirt, I knew it was coming to my store! Funny enough, I’ve actually sold a couple of these to men, too! I’m not exactly sure where the phrase originated from, but recently it’s become popular in opposition to “catcall culture.” I think the feminist in your life will really like this shirt because it’s a somewhat silly way to incorporate her daily dose of opposition to the patriarchy. For some reason, people seem to make a fuss about women who claim the “F Word” sometimes, and I’ve never understood why. But rest assured this shirt will give her a subtle (and stylish) way to speak her mind.
For the One You’re Not Close Enough with to Ask for Her Size - Accessories
Accessories are the perfect way to get around the awkwardness of asking for her size. Our Falling for You Blanket Scarf is ridiculously large and cozy (and guaranteed to fit anyone), or otherwise our Cozy Nights Button Knit Slippers would be a perfect warm addition to her wardrobe as long as you can guestimate her shoe size (S/M fits shoes sizes 6-8, where L/XL fits shoe size sizes 9-11).
For the One You Love with All Your Heart
This gift is the cheapest out of all the ideas on this list. Why? Because it’s not something you can buy! The greatest gift you can give your significant other is the gift of your own time. Plan out an entire day where you and her do fun festivities together minus any outside distractions. Or, stay in and cuddle up by the fire with some hot cocoa and Christmas movie classics. No matter what you decide on, one thing is for certain. Time is our most valuable currency; you can never earn more of it, and you will spend it regardless of what you choose to do (or not do) with it. Please remember not to sweat the small stuff this holiday season and instead spend time with those you love. She’ll cherish the memories you’ll make far longer than any material item….
…But hey, our Love Story Lace Bralette wouldn’t be a bad gift idea either. 😉
