Gifts for the Hostess, Beauty & Fitness Lover | All on Amazon

Hi friend! Happy Friday!  As promised, we’re continuing with gift ideas to help knock out your Christmas shopping with time to spare!

It’s no fun to head into the holidays worried about presents, so I hope that shopping early alleviates some of that stress and leaves you with time to thoughtfully and intentionally enjoy the holidays.

I also found this wonderful Christmas planning guide from Diana Kokku’s YouTube channel that I subscribe to.  It’s practical and purposeful and I already feel 10x lighter by spending an hour planning the next two months!  Maybe you’ll find it helpful too!

1Manicure Set • If she enjoys doing her nails at home, this manicure set ups the pretty factor with rose gold tools and a convenient carrying case.

2Manicure Oil • Winter often causes more dry skin issues.  I’ve been doing my winter skin care saver ritual religiously and drinking tons of water.  I also use this cuticle oil on my nails and it’s awesome!  It comes with a little dropper and you just drop the oil onto your cuticle and gently massage in.  It softens your cuticles and reduces my hangnails, making my natural nails look so much better.  82,813 | 4.5 star reviews

3Essie Nail Polish Kit • For your gal that prefers a pale pink or bright red nail color, this set includes either ‘Fairy Tailor’ or ‘Rock the Runway’ gel polish plus a shiny top coat.

4Makeup Brush Set • I recently bought this set and love the quality!  The pretty rose gold set includes 5 big kabuki brushes and 9 precise eye brushes.  74,088 | 4.5 star reviews

5Revlon Beauty BrushYay for this RESTOCK!  It’s been sold out forever, but it’s back now and ON SALE!  It gives you a smooth, voluminous blow-out without having to use a round brush.  Ali-Shaun and my mom both love it!  And Ali-Shaun has naturally curly hair! Just make sure to use a heat protectant because it gets hot on the high setting. Over 300,000 | 4.5 star reviews

6Makeup Eraser • This thing really is genius with how easily it removes all your makeup, even heavy mascara without scrubbing or soap.

7Lip Scrub • I love how this lip scrub gently exfoliates with sugar, but also conditions and moisturizes with a combination of natural oils. 13,943 | 4.5 star reviews

8Mirror • I use this mirror daily and love it because of its sleek style, cordless, battery operated light and 1x and 5x magnification.

9Shower Steamers • These shower steamers are a great find to help wash away the fatigue and stress of your day! Just drop them in the shower and the steam begins. Over 4,000 | 4 star reviews

10 • Olaplex Gift Set • I’m sure you’ve heard me raving about Olaplex before, but it seems to be the only thing that helps prevent my colored hair from breaking around my hairline.  For the miracle No. 3 mask, you apply it to your damp hair and leave it on, then shampoo and condition like usual.  It’s a bond builder that repairs the broken/damaged bonds of your hair from the inside.

This set includes the Olaplex No. 3, shampoo and conditioner, plus the No. 6 bond builder.

If you have any holiday parties to attend, it’s always nice to bring a little something to acknowledge the hostess’ efforts.  These also make great gifts for any girlfriend, relative or mother-in-law.


Match Striker • A luxurious candle is a great gift for any hostess, but what about adding a match striker?! Such a delightful little treat that also makes cute decor!

Turkish Towels • These turkish towels are great to store in your car for days at the park or you could even use them as a beach towel or sarong. They dry quickly and come in the prettiest shades.

Hand Cream Set • How gorgeous is this trio of hand creams and the floral tin?!  You can choose different scents depending on her preference.

Trinket Dish • For the one who has it all, this trinket dish is great for storing your rings at your bedside or in the kitchen. I love the gold detail.

Capri Candle • The universally most loved candle is now on Amazon!

Wine Bottle Bags • If you’re bringing your hostess a bottle of wine, this burlap bag will be a pretty presentation.

Wooden Flower Stand • How cool is this vase?! Perfect for real or faux florals and such a unique piece!

Wine Charms • Never lose your drink again with these fun wine charms that twist around your wine glass.

Beach Day Pouch • This playful set includes a wristlet, pouch, drink huggers, and towel clips in the prettiest Lily Pulitzer color pattern.

Charcuterie Board • You can’t go wrong with a charcuterie board and this one is the perfect size at 15 inches square.  It’s bamboo wood and comes with a set of cheese knives too.

As a fitness lover myself, I have some of these and WANT some of these! 😉


1Sports Pouch with Belt • This slim fitting pouch and belt holds all your necessities while walking or running. It’s made of stretchable spandex for a perfect, comfortable fit. 4,826 | 4.5 star reviews

2Wrist/Ankle Weights  • After eyeing these for months, I actually just bought a pair for myself.  They’ll add a little bit of resistance to my walks and you can wear them on your wrists or ankles. 2,894 | 4.5 star reviews

3Cooling Towels • Where have these been all my life?!  For anyone that gets super hot and sweaty during their workouts, these towels will feel so refreshing.  They are 100% soft mesh bamboo and you activate the cooling properties by getting seat and wringing out.  When the water evaporates, it stays chilled for at least 3 hours! Also perfect for the pool, beach or kids sports!  3,306 | 4.5 star reviews

4Air Pod Pros– • Brian gifted me these babies for my birthday last year and they are something I use daily!  I listen to podcasts or audible books while cleaning, talk on the phone and of course, exercise with them.  The noise canceling feature is really amazing and very handy when I’m working at a coffee shop!

5Waist Trimmer • I wore something like this after my pregnancy with Jordan, and the over 40,000 positive reviews on this waist trimmer is making me think I use use it again!  It looks like the benefit is that it helps you sweat more during your workouts, which is how we lose weight- our sweat, breath, and urine.

If you’ve ever wondered where fat goes when you lose it, the answer is that it’s converted to carbon dioxide and water.  You exhale the carbon dioxide and the water mixes into your circulation until it’s lost as urine or sweat.  That’s why is also recommended to drink lots of water if you’re trying to lose weight.

I just ordered the small and will keep you posted on how it works for me!

6Water Bottle • Which leads us to our next gift, this water bottle with time markings on it that help you get those ounces in!  It’s leakproof and sweatproof and also has a fruit strainer if you like to add a little flavor to your water. 9,173 | 4.5 star reviews

7Exercise Dice • Here’s a fun spin on a workout. Give these dice a roll and it provides a workout you can do anywhere.  They’re especially helpful for the gal that travels and spends lots of time in hotel rooms!

8Massage Gun • Brian and I have used this on each other and it really helps with sore or tight muscles.  He’s had several back surgeries and he said this thing really relieves his pain when his back flares up.  It has 20 speed levels and 10 different massage heads. 11,869 | 4.5 star reviews

9No Slip Sunglasses •  Not only are they cool looking, they’re polarized, affordable and won’t slip off your nose!  They come in tons of colors and are under $20.

10 • Workout Bands • These bands are no joke!  I use them in my workouts because they are so good for your legs and booty! Anti slip resistant workout bands with three levels of resistance.
