Buying gifts is rewarding but not always easy. We could all use a little help deciding on the perfect thing for our loved ones. Here are some easy, readily available options at a reasonable price. Last minute shopping doesn’t have to be a headache.

After all, the true meaning of the holidays is spending quality time with the ones you hold dear.

Fashion

The trend that keeps popping up everywhere? Leopard! It’s baaaaaaack, in a big but streamlined way. Look for an accessory in this print and you will give the fashionista in your life the ideal gift. An oversized scarf will go with what she already owns without having to worry about the fit.

A leopard print watch is another wise choice. Watches add a touch of sophistication to any ensemble. A stylish gesture that will give her no excuse to be late to your weekly brunch date.

Beauty

The best beauty gift I received this year was a jade roller. I’m passing on the love to the skin care oriented chicas in my life. They promote good health, are fun to use and look stinkin’ adorable on your bathroom counter. Bundle with some sheet masks and you’ll end up with the perfect spa day gift basket. Every woman needs a little TLC in her life. Give her the gift of relaxation, she deserves it.

Games + Entertainment

The more entertainment in life, the better. Whether you are buying for a book-worm or finally want to beat your sister in a game for once, I’ve got you covered.

Cards Against Humanity is a HILARIOUS option. Catan is competitive and strategic but just as fun! Perfect for your friend who is always hosting game night.

Give Becoming by Michelle Obama to the most topical woman in your life, girl power! An important read we should all tackle this upcoming year, including me. A Simple Favor by Darcey Bell is ideal for the mystery lover you know. I couldn’t put it down earlier this year. Bonus points if you watch the tragically bad movie adaptation with her afterwards.

Do not feel you have to go over the top this season. It truly is the thought that counts. What are you hoping to get this year? What are you giving as your best gift? From the bottom of my heart, happy holidays, may it be as magical as you are!
