Holiday Gift Guide: For Her.
I know it’s sliiiightly early, but I wanted to share my 2015 gift guides with you before the rush of holiday shopping begins – in case you’re a Black Friday die hard. If you follow my monthly favorites, a lot of this will look familiar. But I chose my absolute faves right here for you!
Lots more for him, foodie and stocking guides to come! What’s on your list this holiday?
An UGG Duffield Robe. You may remembered that I got one of these last year for Christmas and never being a robe person, shockingly LOVED it. Like I think that I lived in it until at least May? It’s so warm and wonderful and cozy – and a bit more luxurious than a robe you may buy yourself.
Paint Chip Calendar. How cool is this?!
Nest Birchwood Pine Candle. Um, this is hereby the BEST candle I have ever smelled for Christmas. I got one as a birthday gift from my cousin and couldn’t wait to burn it. It smells so fantastic. I already bought extras and a few for gifts.
Elwood the Rainbow Unicorn Mug. Enough said.
Jo Malone gift set. I love these colognes and they are wonderful for someone who likes to switch up their scent often. They have fabulous candles too and hand soaps and just lovely things. Anything Jo Malone would be on my list!
Madewell Transport Tote. I wrote about this tote in my favorites a few weeks ago and have been using it nonstop. It’s huge, you can fit a large laptop plus a million other things, you can fit baby stuff if you’re a mom, and it’s also structured enough that it will stand up on it’s own. But is still soft leather. Win.
The Day Designer. Fancy planners are all the rage right now but that’s not why I love the Day Designer. I just bought my third (or fourth?? I think third) one for next year and adore the layout, the daily planning sheets and all the free printables you get too. If you know someone who is entrepreneurial, this is such a great agenda.
Samsung nx300 Mirrorless Camera. When I don’t want to lug my huge DSLR around but want better quality pics than my iphone, this is what I use. It’s small and compact but takes incredible photos. And you can switch out the lenses!
Beats Pill. I bought one of these for Eddie and few years ago and the portability is what makes it so wonderful. Plus, the sound quality is insane. He uses it indoors and outdoors, at work and at home. I love the white one. If you want to really go over the top, get this GOLD version!!!
Formula X Nail Polish Set. Some of my favorite polishes, hands down. Oh ha.
Kate Spade Pen. I love this idea for the creative who has EVERYTHING. It makes for some excellent office décor.
Bright Checkered Throw Blanket. This is another gift that I love to give (and receive!) because I find that it’s really rare to spend the money on a luxurious blanket that you might actually use everyday – if it’s in your living room.
Kate Spade Glitter Studs. If you have frequented this blog at all in the last three years, you know these are my go-to earrings! I have them in almost every shade, they can be casual or fancy and they are pretty affordable. LOVE.
Sara Happ Lip Slip Set. Love this idea, even if it’s someone who isn’t necessarily into cosmetics or products. Delicious sounding lip stuff – YES.
Kate Spade Tid Bit Plates. This gift reminds me of something my grandma would have given me – or even taken somewhere as a hostess gift. I love the white and black and also that they can be used year round.
Kendra Scott Opal Cuff. My mom got me this for my birthday and it’s stunning. So much prettier than I expected, and comfortable because it doesn’t slide all over the wrist.
Gilded Ceramic Coasters. Super pretty!
Sephora Be Spotted Brush Set. A few of my favorite makeup brushes are from Sephora – and they are mid range in price as opposed to some crazy brushes that are $90 a piece. This gorgeous sparkly set has me sold.
Swell Sparkling Champagne Stainless Steel Water Bottle. Might be a bit extravagant, but it’s a neat upgrade from the water bottles I get at Target. Makes drinking water feel all fancy and stuff.
Artifact Uprising Deep Set Frames. This may be a recurring theme that you see in my gift guides because I am OBSESSED with Artifact Uprising. I love absolutely everything they do. A lot of their smaller gifts are fairly affordable, so I think a splurge of a framed print would be awesome.
Nespresso Machine. I am a serious convert. I’ve had one now for maybe six-ish months and cannot get enough. I love this so much more than my Kuerig and I don’t have as much of a desire to go out and get coffee everyday. Better yet, if someone already has one, the coffee or espresso pods would be a great stocking stuffer!
Marble Cheese Boards. While everyone would love one of these for it’s pretty entertaining purposes, I often bring one out for Eddie and me on the weekends! Very versatile. Snacky meals are the best.
Vinyasa Scarf. As a serious scarf queen (I have waaaay too many), in the cooler months I never stop reaching for my vinyasa scarf. The fact that it’s stretchy and comfortable, an infinity scarf that is easy to wear but can also be unsnapped (really cool), it also looks good and makes sense if you’re bopping around in workout clothes. But it looks great when dressed up a little too!
Manduka Yoga Mat. Back when I was going to yoga five or six days a week (ahhh the good life), I didn’t think the mat made a difference and couldn’t fathom splurging on a nice mat. Um, once I did it was life changing. This mat made a HUGE difference in my practice and if you know someone who loves yoga and is using a beat up old mat from Target that is ten years old, they’d probably adore this.
Copper Eye Mask. Super indulgent and is all about the experience. I don’t’ know if I’d splurge on one for myself yet, but I’d love to get one as a gift.
Leather Clutch Pouch. The metallic colors are so pretty and great for the holiday, but I love these bags because they easily fit inside a huge tote (or diaper bag!) too. Double duty!

So, I think I definitely pinned those studs like, a year and a half ago. DEFINITELY on my wish list! And that paint chip calendar…it’s like it KNOWS paint chips are the only reason I ever step foot in Lowe’s!
We love our Nespresso machine. I just wish we could get the pods without having to order online. We are too lazy. :)
that rainbow unicorn mug is totally something I would love for xmas. It’s one of those gifts I would NEVER buy for myself, but if someone bought it for me, I’d probably use it everyday for the rest of my life.
It’s so funny that you included the Manduka yoga mat in this guide. I started doing yoga in the spring and bought a Nike mat (which I though was good quality — common, Nike!) and have been using it for the past few months, but it was slipping and sliding (I do hot yoga) everywhere! I finally had enough and purchased a Manduka mat and I cannot say enough good things about it! It is soo worth the investment. Plus they carry a lifetime guarantee.
I have a Nespresso Vertuoline as well. Before my Nespresso I literally use to go out for a coffee/latte every.day. I hardly go out now. They are that good. I figure its saving me money ;) Also, did you see that they now have chocolate pods for a limited time?!
omg. i had no idea they had chocolate pods. i just ordered!! and yes, crazy the difference the good yoga mats make.
These are some lovely gift ideas! Need to get myself prepared and start shopping! x
I LOVE your gift guides every year. They are so helpful and, as someone who wants to get shopping done before December, this is very timely. Thank you for the time you put into creating these lists (and other your other curated stuff as well — I read all the time and too infrequently take the time to say thanks… but I do appreciate it so!).
thank you so much rachel!

Presented so beautifully – touching – heartfelt – and for such laudable causes – it feels like giving a gift in the truest sense. If you want to give something with a touch of inspiration, (and who doesn’t!) I’d say check it out.
These are fantastic. You have such great style and you’re a wonderful gift-getter for others. I can’t wait to see your other gift guides! Hurry up so I can shop AND make a list for myself ;)
I LOVE when you do gift guides!!!! Thanks so much Jessica, I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
I totally agree with putting your gift guides out early! Though I do hate Christmas steamrolling Thanksgiving, I have worked in retail and know that the good gift items sell out FAST during the holidays. Even putting out your gift guide in early December might not be soon enough. I’ve seen a lot of guides filled with things that are no longer available and it’s always a total bummer. Great guide, can’t wait to see the rest!
On an unrelated note, I walked in a Paper Source yesterday and just had to turn right around and leave because I wanted to buy ALL the wrapping paper/gift bags/gift boxes/ribbons/bows. I legit need to set a wrapping budget.
Oh my goodness, I desperately need to know more about that amazing gold glitter makeup brush, but I don’t see a link to it – am I going crazy?
ack! i don’t know how i forgot – i just included it, thanks! it’s the sephora gift set, i’m in love. http://www.sephora.com/be-spotted-brush-set-P400714?skuId=1718436
You are my hero, thank you! Those are so, so fantastic.
Absolutely love these ideas – the unicorn mug and jo malone set are definitely things I would buy! xx

What a great guide! I ordered two unicorn cereal bowls for my grand nieces who are obsessed with rainbow unicorns! And I’m eyeing the KS cuff for another gift I need to get. Thank you. I’m almost done. Any ideas for baby toys? I have a grand nephew that needs a gift.
Perfect timing. I am all ready to get my shopping done early this year.
that polka dot pen is amazing but also other gifts are abrilliant
Oh my god, why didn’t I know about all of those free printables for Day Designer?!?! Downloading all of them right now. I’m so freaking excited to starting using the new one in 2016. I have to admit, I barely used the first one that I bought two years ago – but now that I actually don’t have my office job, it will be life changing.
Thanks to you, I’m the proud new owner of a copper eye mask…I’ve been sleeping with one I got for free from Sephora a few months back and it has changed my sleep! Now to have one that has additional anti-aging benefits…I’m sold! Hope my Secret Santa appreciates this as much as I do…she is getting one too!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for cluing me in to The Day Designer three years ago. I am so in love and can’t wait to use my new Chloe Floral! It goes with me everywhere and I just about had a meltdown when I spilled coffee all over it – they have amazing customer service! And the Kate Spade Glitter Studs… another thing I can thank you for! Love… them.
… now all I need is a Madewell Transport Tote and I’m set!
I’ve been a reader for many many years and I rarely comment. However, this post had me thinking about how I do recognize many of the items on this list as some of your favorite things. And, I was struck by how instead of feeling like a creep because I recognized so many of them, it felt like we were actually friends even though I’m just a reader of your blog. Anyways, I just wanted to thank you for sharing your life with us. I know that for me, this blog has felt like reading about a friend’s life every day over the past five years and your words have been such a comfort on otherwise dull or bad days.
Happy holidays Jessica! I hope you, Eddie, and Max have a great time celebrating together this year!

i have those kate spade studs pinned and i was just saw it on my NEED board that i was cleaning out. obviously this is a sign i just need to go ahead and buy them. wheres the google-y heart eyes emoji when you need it.
the paint chip calendar!!! putting it on my wishlist ASAP. also, i’ve been dying for a cozy robe :)
I LOVE your list!!! I’m a total slave to UGG and I own 7 different pairs of their boots (it’s embarrassing I know but in all fairness they are one of the few brands that make my size without special ordering in Europe)! I didn’t know about their robes and I think I’m going to have to give one a try. You totally have to get their amazing slippers (http://www.uggaustralia.eu/3312.html?dwvar_3312_color=BLK#start=5&cgid=womens-slippers). My husband got me them one Christmas (and let’s just say the look on my face was not one of excitement) but they are freakin’ amazing and I’m so happy that he got them for me, and I’m still wearing them 4 years later. Be warned: you may leave the house with them on. I say may cause I’ve caught myself just before stepping out the door so basically I try not to wear them when I’m dressed for work cause I know I could totally walk outside with them on.

I am in serious need of some gift buying help this year.. and these ideas are awesome! Thanks, Jessica!!
I want everything! I love love love that water bottle, I actually saw a similair hot pink one at TJ Maxx a few days ago for way cheaper, they’re so cute and fancy!
LOVE LOVE LOVE the Kate Spade studs. My mom got those for me last year! :)
You should do a gift guide for baby stuff. I have a 6 month old and have no clue what to buy!
I have those Kate Spade glitter studs in 3 colors, and another pair on my wish list this year. And I have a bunch of regular colors – I def blame you for getting me hooked on those over 2 years ago! Lol. They are my everyday earring now!
I nearly fell over when I saw the cost of swell bottles in a local boutique recently, but they are all the rage! I am very tempted!! I have a few family members who would be all about those.
The gold glitter brushes – YES!!! Sonia Kashuk for Target has some awesome brush sets too that are all sparkly and metallic! Always up for bling!
