I come from a long line of shoppers. When I was young, my grandma, mom and I would go shopping together, which is probably what spurred my love for it. I have great memories attached with shopping.
Shopping for gifts is particularly fun – it’s like a challenge! Can I find something my loved one will really appreciate that won’t break my bank? Plus, holiday shopping just feels festive to me.

You know that scene in Disney’s “The Little Mermaid,” where Ariel is singing about her “gadgets and gismos a plenty”? That’s how beauty lovers feel about their makeup collection.
It may seem like they have everything, but trust me, they want more. These five gifts will put a twinkle in their eye (or at least some highlight on their cheeks):

What do you get for the girl who doesn’t want stuff? That’s a great question!
Experiences, like a pottery class or tickets to a show, are always good ideas. However, if you want to gift them something tangible, these useful and sleek products should do the trick.
The key to minimalist gifting is making sure the gift is high quality and serves a purpose (being aesthetically pleasing doesn’t hurt, either).

- Poketo Minimalist Folio
- Snap Minimal Wallet

If you’re shopping for a style-savvy lady, you’ll want to pick out something fashionable and maybe a little trendy.
Keep her up-to-date with a fashion subscription box, like Rachel Zoe’s Box of Style, or pay homage to a style icon with fashion’s take on “Where’s Waldo?” – “Where’s Karl.”

- Over-the-Knee Boots
- Choker Necklace
- Knit Hat with Pom Pom

The Socially Conscious
Do you have a friend who is always thinking of others? Maybe they’re philanthropic, eco-friendly or just generally selfless. However, if they give back or are mindful about their choices, they’d probably love a gift that does the same.
You could make a donation to their favorite charity or cause, or you could give them a gift that gives back. All of these ideas support a charity or cause that is improving lives and the world we live in.
