RLS’s Guide to Holiday Gifts for Your Favorite Women

I love the holidays; however, they are a source of major stress for many people. Holiday gift shopping can be challenging, especially if you are part of a big family and/or have a large circle of friends (although, having a lot of friends is a pretty good problem to have)!

With hope, this gift guide will provide some gift-giving inspiration and make holiday shopping a little easier for all. Keep in mind that, at the end of the day, gifts are about showing someone (in whatever fashion you choose) that he or she important is you! Be sure to check our our gift guide for men, as well.

Happy Shopping!

The Workaholic

Is there a woman in your life who is addicted to her job (by choice or obligation)? Work environments can become particularly hectic around the holidays and at the beginning of a new year. Get your career woman something to help her stay organized, like a card holder or new planner (Lani swears by The Productivity Planner shown below). Or, find her a fresh blazer in her Power Color or comfortable shoes that make a statement and boost her confidence at work. (Do you recognize those pointed flats from a previous blog?) Finally, the most important gift you can give is your support. It’s tough out there for a working woman!

The Pet Enthusiast

We all know someone who is obsessed with her pets (guilty as charged). I’m talking about that person whose phone’s camera roll is 90% photos of her dog and who carries a lint roller in her purse exclusively to remove cat hair from her work clothes. If the way to your friend’s or significant other’s heart is through cute animals, then one of these gift ideas could be perfect for her! Also, check out my blog entry, Fashion, Doggone It, to see more stylish items inspired by furry friends.

The World Traveler

Do you know a woman who is always on the go? Whether she travels for work or pleasure, there are many things you can give a frequent traveler to make her journey more comfortable and, of course, stylish! Does she have a chic, waterproof coat? A luxe vanity case? Lightweight, high-quality headphones? How could she possibly feel icky getting off a plane after snoozing through the whole flight beneath a cashmere travel blanket? Help your traveler feel first class every time she embarks on a new adventure.

The Hopeless Romantic

Does your significant other see the world through rose colored glasses? If so, the holidays are a great time to turn up the romance. Get her a new dress in her favorite color or pattern and then give her an excuse to wear it (maybe a fancy dinner on New Year’s Eve). Or, buy a soft, fluffy pillow for you both to snuggle up against during a cozy night in. And, of course, who can say “no” to some tasty chocolates? (I certainly can’t!)
