Holiday Gift Guide For Her

Hope you enjoyed my holiday gift guide for little ones (check it out here if you still need gift ideas). This last gift guide is for her, whether she’s a momma or not. I went the girly, romantic pink and gold route with this one, as you can probably tell…

Holiday Gift Guide For Her

Portable diffuser / Knit snood / Welcome guest towel / Beaded bracelet set / Felicia collar / ‘Enchanted Garden’ watch / Classic rose pen / ‘Laurel’ scented jar candle / Herbivore Botanicals lip conditioner / Fig + Yarrow pink love salts / Set of 4 pink martini glasses

You don’t have to come up with the trendiest item or spend a ton of money to achieve a thoughtful gift for a girlfriend, sister, co-worker or any other important woman in your life. When shopping, it’s easy to over think it, so I wanted to share some classic gift ideas – like this scarf, candle, and jewelry – that have been updated in a chic, modern way. And if you’re trying to come up with a gift package that has that “wow factor” you can combine several of these into a themed box – entertaining, pampering, fashion etc.

If this gift guide brought any of your girlfriends to mind, she probably deserves it. Our girls are so important!

Who do you still have to shop for? Hopefully these guides have helped!


Holiday Gift Guide: For the Little Ones

Did you guys get a head start on your holiday shopping over Thanksgiving? Shopping sales can be fun, but there’s plenty of time left to find the perfect gift for everyone in your life this month. Since so many people I know have little ones, I thought it would be fun to put together a gift guide with them in mind. (Plus, toys are just more fun!) Whether you want to wrap something up for your own, have some nieces and nephews to shop for or want to gift the mommas in your life with something special for their babies, this gift guide has you covered.

Gift Guide for Little Ones - Tamera Mowry

Robeez bear hug baby shoes / Aden + Anais silky blanket / Wooden toy elephant / Retro kitchen / Set of 2 storage boxes with wheels / Tegu circuit racer / Pom pom basket

Here you’ll find a mix of toys like this cute retro kitchen and more practical gifts like a quality blanket and storage solutions. Love when something practical can act as décor too, such as those wheeled storage boxes with the fun sayings. Stylish, creative toys and wares like the pieces above are gifts that both mom and child can make use of (though I think we know who would prefer the toys ;)) and they don’t throw off the care you put into decorating your house and making it look welcoming for guests. Win, win.

Are you gifting with any little ones in mind this year? Stay tuned for more gift ideas!


Gift Guide: For The Hostess

As you might have guessed when I posted about how to make the perfect mini bar, I love playing hostess. Not only does it mean getting to spend a special evening with friends or family, but welcoming them into my home – sharing recipes, breaking out the décor and finding ways to keep everyone happy and entertained.

Hostess Gift Ideas

I also love to attend others’ gatherings and share a meal or drinks with friends. If you’ve ever hosted a get together, though, you know it is some seriously hard work! Especially during the holidays. There are different meals to prepare at different times, a whole mix of personalities to please and an entire house to clean. Trips to the grocery store even become major adventures. That’s why when I think of gifts that it’s extra thoughtful to give this time of year – the hostess always comes to mind.

It could be someone who just pulled off an epic Thanksgiving meal or someone who throws amazing parties throughout the year that you never want to miss – but either way, the hostess (or host) in your life definitely deserves some love!

There are two ways to go about a hostess gift, the practical “I’ve been needing one of those!” gifts, or more out of the ordinary, “I would have never thought of this!” items. Either can be a huge hit, of course. I love the serving trays and ceramic canister for practical tools that make heir parties even prettier. For a more unexpected gift, a cake stand that she might not have ever thought to buy herself, or even a wall print (#7) make thoughtful options.

Are you usually the host or do you have that friend or family member that loves to take on those duties herself?


Gift Guide: For Him

Shopping for men is always the hardest. You may have his interests nailed down but guys can be surprisingly specific about what they’ll wear or what product they’ll use (see, we’re not that different!), which adds to the uncertainty. Hopefully my gift guide will inspire gifts for all the men in your life this season. I’ve added ideas for anyone from sports lovers to the tech obsessed… Hope this helps put your shopping right on track!

Gift Guide for Him

1. Sports Gear: Some guys aren’t into sports, but those that are tend to go all out. Just make sure you have his favorite team right, or you’ll never hear the end of it! Lol. This MLB Giants Track Jacket is nicer than your average baseball tee, but isn’t too out there that’d he’d be restricted to wearing it only on game day.

2. Leather Phone Sleeve: When going for a simple gift like a phone case, try something that will really match his style. This leather phone sleeve is for the guy who wants something sleek but not too flashy.

3. Fitness Gear: If your man is into fitness, an activity tracker like the Fitbit One, which monitors activity and sleep, will be his next obsession. With a Fitbit you can track steps, calories, distance and more, as well as log food and workouts, and keep track of your sleep patterns (making for much better mornings).

4. Grooming Supplies: You don’t need to book an expensive spa date to pamper your husband – a new shaving kit or grooming supplies that go above and beyond his normal routine will be a great option for anyone. The Working Man’s Hygiene Kit has pretty much everything a man might need, like cleansers, moisturizers and after-shower gel. This particular kit is handmade in USA too.

5. Craft Beer Holder: A craft beer holder is a fantastic way to surprise the man who loves his brew with something a little personalized that’s still fun and relaxed. With this one, you can get a monogram in any letter. Then there’s the wine bottle holder for the wine buff too!

6. His Favorite Show: Still not sure what’s your best option? Think about whether there’s a show he’s always raving about. A lot of amazing shows aren’t on regular cable these days or are hard to find online, so getting him a DVD set guarantees he can watch whenever he wants. And if you’re both into the same type of shows, it can be something tune into together.

What do you guys think? Do you like shopping for men?
