A Very “Friendly” Christmas.

I think it’s safe to say that we are tired of getting candles for Christmas from our friends. Even worse is a home decor piece that does NOT fit our style, because then you feel obligated to have it out. So this year I’ve thought really hard about gifts that *most* of your women friends will love and not want to throw away or “donate.” And you can still get these in time if you order TODAY!

Ted Baker Manicure Set ($55, Nordstrom)

This is perfect to keep in your purse or car so you never have to pull that hangnail or tear your broken nail!



Rainy Day Coin Purse ($13, Lulu’s) ($12.95, Paper Source-call to check store availability in the Houston area)

Again, something cute and small they can keep in their purse or car and is actually useful. I used to hide my cash in my sunglass case but now that Payton can open that, I needed something with a zipper!

Ohh Deer x Urban Outfitters Planner ($19, Urban Outfitters)

You can ALWAYS use a planner. Maybe they already have one, maybe they don’t. Maybe they hate it. So give them the gift receipt!


Flint Retractable Lint Roller ($6.99, available at The Container Store and Bed, Bath & Beyond)

I have one of these in every room of the house. And in my purse. And my car. It’s genius and it’s great for everyone! If you don’t use lint rollers for everything in your life, you’re doing life wrong.


Portable Phone Charger ($45, eBay)

Ok, so this item you can’t get by Christmas but it’s so cute I couldn’t help it. Just give them a picture of it and say “you’ll be getting this soon.” Or buy them any portable charger! There are super cute ones at Nordstrom, Urban Outfitters…just about anywhere in the mall. Super useful and compact enough they can stash it anywhere!

DIY Paint Dipped Wooden Spoons (about $10-$15 and SO CUTE)

So this on is a DIY, but I made them for my own kitchen and love them so much. I bought the wooden spoons from Target, as well as the acrylic paint I used. The tape and paint brushes I had already! Here is an easy tutorial I followed!

DIY Faux Paint Dipped Spoon Handles

Tie a bow around them and put them in a clear vase that you can find at any Michael’s or Hobby Lobby! This is what mine looked like!

They add the perfect pop of color to my very white and black kitchen. 😁

Hope this helps y’all get your friends some non-candle gifts this year! Or at least gave you some ideas!

Thanks for reading!
