Last Minute Gift Ideas for the Boss Babes in Your Life
Gift Idea #1: The Watch and Cuff Combo ft. Daniel Wellington
Who could go wrong with a classic and timeless timepiece? See what I did there? Hah! Anywho, Daniel Wellington's Classic St. Mawes watch is a gorgeous option! With its slim and delicate fit, it'll sit beautifully on your wrist, whilst still making a statement. With a flawlessly round and simple dial, a classy leather band and an elegant casing, you have a timepiece that will take you anywhere, any day! My favorite thing, the watch goes with everything. This makes life 100x easier for us busy boss ladies on the run, who honestly don't have time to be figuring out what watch will go well with what - we'd rather keep it simple and practical!
Gift Idea #2: A Reliable Agenda ft. Kate Spade
New year, new beginnings, and a fresh new start! For 2017, why not gift your fellow boss babes a solid and sturdy planner which will keep their adventures, goals, and resolutions in check! And what if you were able to do this by gifting them a stylish agenda with the look of a sophisticated journal on the outside but the organization and ease of a user-friendly planner on the inside? Fantabulous! This is exactly what the Kate Spade Diary of a Young Lady Planner 2017 is all about! A hot pink agenda book with the feel of a diary, perfect for the fashionable, but busy, gal. Think: gold foil leatherette cover, monthly and weekly spreads, pages for notes, laminated dividers, and dated from January 2017 through December 2017. 'Nough said my bishes, 'nough said.
Gift Idea #3: A Feel Good Perfume ft. Elizabeth and James
Because nothing makes a boss babe feel saucier than knowing she's out and about, meeting all her deadlines and conquering the world while smelling like an absolute power goddess! So let's talk convenience for a second. The Elizabeth and James Nirvana Rose and Nirvana Bourbon Rollerballs are what's good. Small and perfect for the gal on the run, to carry on her purse and conveniently freshen up or hype up her scent anywhere she goes. The Nirvana Rose scent is a seductive floral blend embodying the heart of a dark rose with notes of rose de mai, geranium, and vetiver for a sultry, refined scent with intrigue. The Nirvana Bourbon scent is more like a provocative blend of sultry vanilla bourbon, oak wood, and a hint of tuberose for a bold, oriental-woody scent with intoxicating confidence. I mean, these scents are the ultimate feel good perfumes.
Gift Idea #4: A Stylish Read ft. Aimee Song's Capture Your Style
For both the social media junkies and newbies alike, Aimee Song's book is the perfect gift for any gal interested in one-upping her Instagram game. I recently started reading it and haven't been able to put it down! Filled with insightful tips and tricks from the social media boss babe herself, Capture Your Style is the modern day rule book on how to make the best use of your Instagram account to establish your personal brand and grow your Instagram community and following. With her book, Aimee covers everything from fashion, travel, food, décor, and more. Aimee—whose Instagram page has over 3 million followers!—unveils tons of insider tips on curating a gorgeous feed and growing your audience. I say, the boss babes in your life will certainly love this gift!
Gift Idea #5: The Perfect Crossbody Bag ft. GiGi New York
Along the lines of always being on the run and barely having time to sit down and put together an outfit, a crossbody neutral colored bag is the perfect gift to ease your boss babe's troubles when faced with this type of situation. This is why I love GiGi New York's Catie Crossbody in Bone Embossed Python so much! Roomier than it looks, she can easily stash her phone, keys, wallet, and makeup essentials in this mini bag. She can also wear it on her shoulder or as a crossbody with the adjustable chain strap. However she wishes to style her Catie Crossbody, it pretty much goes with any outfit you can think of! From a casual look to a fancier outfit, this bag will have your fave boss babe going places!
Gift Idea #6: An Astrology Guide ft. Cosmopolitan's Bedside Astrologer
For the Astrology fan or the gal who simply likes to read her horoscope and have a giggle about it, Cosmo's Bedside Astrologer is a thing of beauty. "Cosmopolitan Bedside Astrologer offers a beautiful, inspiring, and fun way to connect with the universe and your own inner wisdom. Aurora Tower and Laura Brounstein demystify astrology and show you things about yourself you’ve likely kept buried or didn’t believe were real—the strengths and gifts you bring to the world. This book offers incredible insight into others, too, helping us strengthen our compassion and understanding for happier relationships.” — Gabrielle Bernstein, New York Times bestselling author of Miracles Now (couldn't have said it better myself!)
Gift Idea #7: A Sexy Bikini ft. Triangl Bikini
Let's be honest, all the boss babes in your life deserve a little break. So why not give them an incentive to take one by gifting them a sexy-as-can-be mini bikini from Triangl Swimwear! I can't wait to wear my Isabel Violet bikini during my Christmas vacay to Puerto Rico and I am positive your boss babe will feel the same way once she sees how stunning Triangl's pieces are! With tons of options to choose from, your fave boss babe will be urging you to pack your bags and rush to the tropics in no time!
Gift Idea #8: An Empowering Read ft. Sophia Amoruso's Nasty Galaxy
Nasty Galaxy is a lushly illustrated embodiment of the collective spirit of the Nasty Gal brand, Sophia’s own personal brand, and Girlbosses everywhere, with a foreword by none other than Courtney Love. Disclaimer: this is not a style book. It’s not about how to mix prints—it’s about how to leave your mark on everything you touch. Highly graphic and visual, filled with illustrations, photos, and short essays, Nasty Galaxy is part scrapbook, part inspo-journey, with moments of frivolity scattered throughout. Tactical and entertaining, envelope-pushing and conventional, surprising and refreshingly straightforward, Nasty Galaxy is a dive into Sophia’s philosophies on work, relationships, balance, friendships, and more. It is a celebration of her roots in vintage clothing, punk attitude, fringe characters, and don’t-give-a-fuck thought leadership. Oversized and in full color, this is the newest, coolest, must-have read on your boss babe's bookshelf.
Gift Idea #9: A Pair of Super Fly Shoes ft. Lonia Shoes Ethnic Print Flat
Shoes, a gal's best friend. They hype up our looks while taking us through our life journey in style. As I've mentioned before, I'm a solid size 10 and for boss ladies with big feet like myself, this can be quite the problem. At times, finding shoes for our specific size isn't always as easy. So if your boss babe happens to experience the same type of struggle, fear not - Lonia Shoes is the answer. They have gorgeous and classy pairs, both comfortable and well priced! The Ethnic Print Flat is a classic and your boss babe will love to have finally found a shoe brand which understands #bigfeetproblems. Talk about a rad gift for her!
Gift Idea #10: A Badass Band Tee ft. Forever 21
Last on my list of gift ideas for the boss babes in your life, and an Instagram favorite, is my most current obsession: band tees. In specific, this Def Leppard Graphic Tour Tee which I can't get enough of. If the boss babe in your life is a real badass, I bet anything she will be mad in love with this gift! Fab fit, super soft fabric, and a vibrant print, this band tee is da bomb dot com. Forever 21 also has a few others which will catch her attention liket this one and this other one! Plenty 'o band tees to choose from.
Well, my last minute shopper, this is it for now. I hope this guide was helpful and I'll let you shop till you drop as I have to finish my holiday shopping as well! Until next time and happy, happy holidays!
