The Ultimate 2018 Gift Guide

I LOVE the holidays. I'm definitely aware that not everyone has the same sentiment I do when it comes to this time of year. Not only are the holidays not necessarily jolly for everyone - but not everyone loves to shop and curate gift lists like I do.

Gift giving is my love language. Can you tell?

Every year I pull together a gift guide or two for ya'll, but this year I went BANANAS and curated an ultimate 2018 gift guide for all the humans you could possibly want to shop for. From your BFF to your BF (and let's not forget Mom and Dad), I've got ya covered in this massive gift guide.

So bookmark this baby for future reference, ya feel?

All the graphics in this post are interactive - click on the "show now" buttons to shop each product!


Would it even be appropriate if I didn't start with a beauty junkie gift guide? Seriously. If you've got a girlfriend that goes nuts for every new palette launch - this is the list for her.

I picked out some beautiful holiday toned palettes for the eyes and cheeks, as well as some skincare and haircare favorites.



If any friends and family are scouting this looking for gift ideas for me - SHOP THIS SECTION. I die for all things comfy and cozy and this is the ultimate list.

My most recommended product is the Barefoot Dreams blanket. It's basically the same cost as selling a kidney, but trust me anything Barefoot Dreams is worth it. We're talking unrivaled comfort levels here.



We've all got that one friend who seems to always be on the road. This section is juuuust for her. 

Marble print luggage and accessories means she'll never lose her stuff in the crowd.



I don't know about you, but my dad is always the hardest one in the family to shop for. He basically buys everything he wants, leaving the rest of us to try to pick out the most creative pair of socks.

Well not this year, dad. I'm pretty proud of this list I've come up with, from the ultimate at home latte machine to noise cancelling headphones designed for sleep - these are gadgets dad will approve of.



I like to spoil my mama with all the little luxuries I can. This year I've been eyeballing some leather goods from Cuyana, cozy sweaters, and my personal fave - a weighted blanket.



And finally - let's talk about boys.

Obviously there's a spectrum of guys out there (the ones that love video games, the ones that have style, etc), so I went for a healthy mix of all in this guide. You can touch on the 90's kid nostalgia with a Super Nintendo, but like also keep it 2018 with noise cancelling headphones and a Patagonia. Ya know?
