Girlfriends Gift Guide ♡ Vlog
Hi gorgeous! So happy you came by! Grab your wine (or kombucha!) and settle in 😉🍷
Every year, Kat and I do a little gift exchange for the holidays. The best part is always spending time together. This year we filmed a little vlog so we can all experience it together!
We’re sharing all of our best thoughtful and budget-friendly gift ideas. The most important thing is to think about what your girlfriend loves and what’s special to her. Give from the heart and it’s guaranteed she’ll adore it!
And you give us the biggest gift of all ~ the gift of love!! ❤️

Bubble Bath Essentials
For Kat’s Random Acts of Love Challenge, she’s going to treat herself to a bubble bath so I gave her a few things to help her make that dream come true ;) These bath salts and holiday soap from Anthropologie are perfect to pamper your girls!
Her Bucket List
I love giving books to all my friends and family! I gave Kat one of my favorites, The Four Agreements, for her birthday this year. She has been talking about how she wants to travel more in 2018 so I got her a book called The Bucket List that has all these unique adventures you can do on every continent!
Cozy Socks & PJs
You can never have enough pajama pants for Chrismas morning! Anthro has the cutest PJs. And Bobby picked out the softest socks from Costco!
“What I Love About You” Book
They have these adorable little books at Urban Outfitters! I filled out one with all my favorite things about Kat and got her one to give her grandma!
Deck The Tree 🎄
I found a donut, flamingo, and puppy ornament that looked like Winston at a little boutique in Palm Springs! 🍩🐶
“You’re Magic” Bookmark ✨
Every time Karena reads, she folds her pages~ so now she’ll open a book she’ll get a little reminder of how magical she is! As soon as I saw this bookmark from Yellow Owl Workshop I thought of her!
Art Deco Bracelet
Karena loves anything art deco so I picked out a bracelet in that style from one of the boutiques in Manhattan Beach. Urban Outfitters also makes really cute bracelets like this one!
Travel Makeup Bag
Okay this Samudra bag is the BEST! It’s a perfect gift for your girls for when they’re on the go. It’s washable and they can stash all their makeup and toiletries~ and they last forever.
You can find all sorts of sizes and styles on Shopbop!
I noticed that Karena didn’t have any pictures displayed of her wedding so I printed and framed a few for her. I think pictures are the best presents you can give someone. We’re all so digital now and no one prints pictures anymore! It means a lot to see a picture in person and have a physical reminder of a special moment.
And it’s so easy and budget-friendly too! You can just stalk your friend’s Insta for the perfect pictures ;) I picked up the frames at Target!
Karena & Bobby’s Anniversary!!
We also FaceTimed Bobby so I could give them a belated wedding anniversary gift…I was a few months late 🙈 If you have a friend celebrating an anniversary or her first Christmas with her husband, you can collect little mementos from each era of their relationship!
I gave Karena and Bobby a glass and T-shirt from the bar where they first kissed 💋, a sign from the street where they moved in together, a framed pic from their wedding, and martini glasses and a cocktail shaker for their new home in Palm Springs! (I picked these up from a boutique in Manhattan Beach but I also love these glasses from Target!) This gift will be a sweet reminder of their history and help them toast their future!

~ The Gift Of Love ~
The most rewarding gift of all ~ adopt a family in need! Every year we do this with our group of friends. This week we did it for the fourth year in a row! Each one of us chooses a family member to gift. We all picked up household items, clothes, toys, school supplies, and cozy blankets and candles. Our friend Liz organizes it with a local hospice and hosts us for a wrapping party.
If you’re interested in doing this, we recommend looking at smaller, local organizations. You can start with a local hospice, children’s hospital, or a community center.
