Although it could be argued that it's too soon for a holiday gift guide, I know some people like to get a head-start on their gift shopping (I'm one of those), and I'm especially fond of looking for presents for my girlfriends! They are the easiest to shop for and you don't have to spend a lot to show you care with a little something special. The only problem I foresee is perhaps the, "one for you, one for me" syndrome. I'm completely guilty of this! If fact, that iPhone case might have to be mine soon. ;)
1 | Kate Spade Notepads, set of 2 ($12) Who doesn't love a pretty notebook? I love that it comes in a set of two so you don't have to choose between the floral or stripe.
2 | Kate Spade Teardrop Earrings ($28.80) These gorgeous earrings are 40% off and I'm afraid they'll sell out fast. But, they also come in a gorgeous clear, black, or tortoise for $48.
3 | Lolita Floral iPhone case ($35) This case is for the iPhone 6, but it also comes in 6+. I also love this gold scalloped iPhone case.
4 | Trio of Michael Kors Fragrances ($40) Fragrances can be tough, but I've gotten lots of compliments on Michael Kors scents and with three in the package, your friend can switch them up for different occasions.
5 | Clarins Mineral Eye Shadow Palette ($42) A lot of women won't splurge for department store makeup, but they really enjoy receiving it as a gift. This palette is too good with the colors inside and shiny gold case.
6 | Essie Nail Polish, mini 4-pack ($17) She'll wear these colors all year long and think of you fondly each time. I received something similar from a Secret Santa years ago and still use it!
7 | Super Pleated Infinity Scarf ($28) This scarf looks so luxurious, but is a great price. It also comes in black, grey, blue or red.
8 | Tech Earmuffs ($35) How cool are these that you can listen to your iPod while out and about and staying warm?! Perfect for the runner, dog walker, or traveler.
9 | North Face Reversible Beanie ($30) How adorable is this beanie?! Pink and coral is one of my favorite color combos. But it also comes in black.
10 | Mason Jar Candle "Just How Good Do I Have to Be?" ($16) A good candle is also something a lot of people won't buy for themselves, but will definitely enjoy as a gift. This one is large enough to last a long time and comes in other cute, cheeky sayings.
11 | Cally Slipper ($38.95) I'm obsessed with wearing slippers around the house right now and trust me, aside from a long foot massage, this is the best thing you can get for a woman's feet.
12 | Michael Kors Fingerless Gloves ($48) Keep warm with the use of your fingers for your phone. That gold detail keep the knit gloves from looking too frumpy.
13 | Juicy Tubes Lip Gloss Set ($30) These are my favorite lip glosses. I bought a set like this for myself last year and I'm still using them. I wear them alone or over lipstick for some sheen.
14 | Butter Nail Lacquer Limited Edition Set ($39) This set looks and feels very glamorous. Perfect for the holidays, but she'll wear the gorgeous pink and grey throughout the year I'm sure.
So tell me, are you cataloging gift ideas now, waiting until after Thanksgiving, or do you prefer the thrill of the last-minute hunt?
