I’ve been meaning to do a My Favorite Things gift guide for women for the past month…you know like Oprah or Gwynnie’s Goop, but cool stuff you’ll actually use?! Unfortunately life has been a little cucu for Cocoa Puffs and I’m pretty lucky my head is still screwed on straight. Don’t ya just love the holidays?!
So if you haven’t finished all of your shopping yet, (yeah right!) I wanted to share just a few cool ideas for the holidays. Some of these are made or sold by women I love! (I actually bought many of these items so if you are reading this and get a gift from me, pretend it’s a surprise OK?) And by the way, several of these awesome friends and retailers in this gift guide for women are doing discounts and a mega big giveaway at the end of this post, WOOT! One lucky winner will come away with a prize pack valued at almost $400! Here are some of my favorite gifts in my gift guide for women this holiday season!
gift guide for women
Mary Kay Lip Liner and Lip Gloss
If you love lip gloss you will be as obsessed with this color as I am! Fancy Nancy is the name and it looks great on everyone. Good stocking stuffer or gift for that hard to buy for lady in your life. Get it here! Also, the Neutral lip liner is my FAV and something I’ve written about before, it pairs well with this gloss. And Amy, my wonderful friend is giving away the Neutral Lip Liner and Fancy Nancy Lip gloss to one lucky reader. Wow!
Health Junkie Jess Polish
Do you like natural products? Then try this homemade face scrub from Health Junkie Jess! I met Jessica and her hubby at a Christmas house last year, they are big HEAT fans so of course we hit it off! I’ve tried this and her peppermint lip balm, love both and they are super affordable. And this ultimate health junkie wants to giveaway one of any product of your choice. Keep reading and thanks Jess!
Origami Owl Wrap Bracelet
My friend Lenette gave me one of these BLESSED bracelets on my birthday, and it’s awesome, I wear it all the time! It’s a variation of a locket bracelet by Origami Owl without the locket. There are so many different leather bands and colors, I fell in love with them! Contact her if you’d like to order one of these wrap bracelets, you have a choice of 3 charms: Blessed, Love, or Let It Go. That’s a lot of love and blessings!
Laurel & Bleau Modern Family Monogram
I’m super excited to be acquainted with Lori Gilman of Laurel & Bleau Jewelry and first noticed her jewelry on one of THE MOMS Denise Albert on my trip to Mexico. She designs for the stars, like Melissa Joan Hart, Lebron James, Chris Bosh…you get the gist. (She’s super duper talented and creative!) This Modern Family Monogram is AWESOME for any lovely lady on your list, and can be customized in silver, gold, or rose gold. She is doing 15% for mommy in SPORTS readers using CODE MIS15 though December 15 if you want to receive for Christmas, and is giving one of these necklaces away below! Can you believe her generosity? A $200 value…good luck! (PS I just got mine and can’t take it off!)
I fell in love with this mug perfect for any friend, especially those on social media. Like all the time. I found these at Nordstrom and they are free shipping! By the way, this one is awesome for your hubby too! (Shhh…already bought for my guy!)
More makeup? So I get tons of pitches in my email inbox, but this one I tried and really like. This company was started by Julie Fredrickson and it’s called Stowaway. Half the makeup, half the price, perfect for your purse! I actually really like the concealer and Scarlet lipstick, by my favorite is her Radiant Complexion Beauty Balm Cream. I wear it on mom days when I don’t want to wear makeup, but I want my skin to look even. Highly recommend! And she is extending her sale only to MIS readers, so if you buy one set of $50 you get another FREE using CODE ENCORE. If you buy buy two $50 sets you’ll get two more $50 sets FREE. That’s a $100 savings! Use CODE ENCOREMORE.
Yes I already wrote a blog post on this but it’s worth repeating, send this one to your hubby! I love my Intel 2in1 laptop/tablet, and every woman needs one in my opinion. It’s a lightweight super thin and chic laptop, it easily turns into a tablet, and you can slip it into your purse. I can’t say enough about this device, so if you are in the market for a new computer, I would look at the Intel 2in1, the Lenovo Yoga!
Thermos Hydration with Smart Lid
I think this is one of the coolest things ever (pardon the pun) and something on my own Christmas list. Have you seen the Thermos Hydration with Smart Lid? You can connect it to your phone and it measures your intake of liquids, and tells you when it’s time for a refill. I personally had low amniotic fluid during both my pregnancies and totally needed this! I also need it now because I’m always dehydrated. This is awesome for any fitness lover as it links to your FitBit too! How cool?
Are you a zen-master yogi? Neither am I, but I do love hot yoga once or twice a month! Ivy Ackerman of Boca Raton, FL started her company Slam Glam nine years ago out of her SUV. She played tennis but couldn’t find the right sports accessories for players and teams, so she started her own business. Nine years later she’s a thriving online e-commerce store servicing customers nation wide and internationally. This mompreneur sells tennis, golf, travel, yoga and lifestyle accessories geared towards women. Check out her site for holiday sales, and oh yeah, she’s giving away one gorgeous Yogoco Yoga Bag which retails for $85. Wait…can I enter?
So how do you win these four prizes in my gift guide for women? ENTER BELOW! And please visit these amazing retailers sites and say hi! They are pretty awesome for giving us the chance to enjoy these amazing products for free! Happy Holidays and GOOD LUCK!

I LOVE the water bottle too!
Like them all. Thanks for the chance!
I am totally entering and I WANT THAT THERMOS!!!!
You know that I am sucker for coffee mugs, so that one just topped my wishlist! What an awesome giveaway! You rock!
What great gift suggestions. I think I will get one of those origami Owl Wrap bracelets for my daughter.
What a great list. The mug about not unfriending cracks me up. Pinning.
Ooooh! I was at a craft fair this weekend and fell in love with so much of the Origami Owl stuff. Those wrap bracelets are gorgeous. And how did you know I needed new lip gloss?! 😀
Because I love all of these so I knew everyone else would too!
Jennifer | The Deliberate Mom says
Oh my goodness, I love EVERYTHING about your gift guide! It’s probably the best one I’ve seen this season. That blessed bracelet?! OMG! LOVE. The yoga bag – GORGEOUS!
Is your giveaway open for us Canadians? Please say yes, please say yes! lol
Thanks for sharing! I pinned it!
Wishing you a lovely day.
I’m so glad you like it! I picked things that I’m actually buying for gifts, these are truly some of my top picks, including that secondary mug for guys! lol! I LOVE my BLESSED bracelet too, wear it all the time! I messaged you about giveaway!
I love the Monogram necklace!
If I had to pick one it will be the Intel 2 in 1. I need a keyboard in order to type. Pressing down on keys on a phone or tablet is not my forte. I am a quick typest and love that this tablet has a keyboard.
i’m a guy and my wife would love any one of these gifts…esp that 2in1 laptop!!
I love the mug. A lot. It’s so sweet.. and a funny sign of our times.
That said, I gravitate towards the pampering items. I guess I need a lot of that in the winter.
yvonne almaguer says
I have to be honest (and stingy), I want them ALL! 😉
Jennifer Corter says
These are all great ideas! I especially love the “I will never unfriend you” mug.
MICHELLE R says
I love the I will never unfriend you mug
Kerry Duchesneau says
I haven’t even started shopping yet. This should really help a lot what great ideas.
I just checked out the Modern Family monogram necklace and next I’m going to Health Junkie Jess. I’m almost done shopping for others and now want to shop for me. Happy Holidays.
Kricket Fountain says
All of these gifts are great, but I could DEF use the Dell 2in1!! TY for the chance☺
Kristie Hendricks says
I love them all! I can not pick just one!
Kristie Hendricks says
I love them all!
how has no one said they aren’t totally excited for that laptop!!!>>>??? I am dying for all of it but I seriously need a laptop! the kids broke the ipad, and I don’t have a laptop…. I really would be so blessed to win this!
maybe I am confused and the laptop isn’t part of the giveaway, just part of the gift guide… so in that case, the necklace would be my favorite item 🙂
I love the necklace. It’s so pretty.
Raina DelRio says
I love the necklace and the Origami Owl bracelet.
I do love natural products, and that Polish scrub sounds amazing!
Robin Rue (@massholemommy) says
Those Origami Owl bracelets are CUTE! I pretty sure I need to go out and order them ALL 🙂
I love that smart water bottle! That would keep me drinking (I am goal oriented). I wish I could have added this to my list, but its too late. I will have to treat myself.
Origomi Owl bracelets are ohh soo cute. LOVE IT
What an amazing giveaway! Love everything but that monogram necklace is my fave! I love the look and that it isn’t huge. I saw your Scope and loved that it was quite delicate!
I love it too! I need to catch your scopes!
Jenna Wood says
I am in love with the family monogram necklace, it is so classy. I’ll have to go check out what metals they come in- I’d love to order one in Rose Gold.
Vera Sweeney says

Wow, this is quite the giveaway. I love those blessed bracelets. They would be perfect for my niece, but truth is I would keep them for myself. shhh 🙂
A great list and give away. I would love the water bottle as my daughter keeps taking mine!!
