Hi hi hi!
Today we’re focusing on the gifts for the woman in your life who takes control of her own career and life. I picked these items for their functionality and also there’s something that fits everybody’s budget.
For a woman on the go, it’s important to have a mini makeup kit for their purse so that they can do quick touch-ups. What I like about this particular kit is that each item can be used to accentuate a look. The pouch is also big enough so they can throw in additional items like blotting sheets, mini eyeshadow palette, etc. I will do a post featuring how to create your own DIY makeup kits.
It’s tough to conquer the world in a pair of stilettos, so that’s why I included these cute, classic, and comfortable ballet flats. I love the Tory Burch Minnie Ballet Flats because they can be folded up to a compact size (it comes with a cloth bag where they can be stored) and kept in a purse. These flats are extremely comfortable and they don’t pinch at all! If you are considering picking these up for your #GirlBoss, I would highly suggest going a half-size up. I love using my ballet flats as everyday wear – the pair that I have is in a metallic silver that adds a pop of brightness to a neutral outfit. The best part about these shoes is that it packs classic style into a compact easy to travel with pouch.
Sometimes a #GirlBoss has to go straight from work to an event, but carrying a full-size purse to an event can be inconvenient and bulky. A wristlet is a perfect solution and Michael Kors knows how to make classic wristlets that match any outfit. I was gifted a Michael Kors wristlet for Christmas a couple years back and I love mine. The leather is extremely soft, it’s thin enough to be kept in a medium-large purse and has compartments for credit cards, ID, business cards, phone, lipstick/lipgloss, etc. It really can hold a lot without being too bulky. This is a small gift, but it can be utilized in so many different ways and they will find themselves using it more than they think they would.
Every #GirlBoss needs to stay hydrated, but it can be tough to do when it’s a continual grind. Hydroflasks are my favorite water bottles because I can have ice cold water all day long without having to worry about the condensation building up on the outside of the bottle or my ice melting. The thin style of this bottle makes it easy to fit in a medium-large purse and it can easily fit into a cup holder. Some of the larger Hydroflasks are too wide and can’t easily fit into a cup holder which makes it a little more difficult to travel with. You can also purchase a “Sport Cap,” which is more like a traditional sports water bottle, but I figured when they are rocking a bold lip, it may not be the most pleasant experience. So I would opt to get the standard mouth.
Everybody needs a little help with keeping track of everything. From meetings, to dinners, to bills, it’s tough to keep track of everything. A planner is a great gift for anyone, but is essential for a #GirlBoss. What I love about this particular planner is that the cover itself is classic and timeless, it’s thin enough to be kept in a purse and there’s extra room for additional notes. The actual layout is that of a typical planner, where you have a month overview and then each week has larger sections for Monday through Friday and smaller sections for Saturday/Sunday.
I feel like a Fitbit should always be a consideration when it comes to getting gifts. Personally, I have a Fitbit Charge 2 and I love mine. An Apple watch can be way too expensive to be able to gift someone, but a Charge 2 is a happy medium. The Charge 2 can be connected to a phone via Bluetooth and it can display incoming calls, text messages, reminders, etc., it’s also great because it can remind you to get up and walk (which I like). You can also find different styles of bands on Amazon and Fitbit does have a couple options. Personally I love mine because when I’m at a function/event, I can discreetly take a look at my Charge 2 to read a text or to see who’s calling without making it look too obvious.
Aint nobody got time to worry about whether or not their makeup will hold up throughout the day and into the night. Urban Decay’s All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray is an OG holy grail product for me because it seriously sets my makeup to last 12+ hours. Urban Decay knows how to do nozzles, and the spray nozzle on this is perfection! It provides a fine mist, but not too fine where it feels like nothing is being put on your face, nor is it too harsh where it feels like it’s just spitting at you. The product itself doesn’t change the finish of the makeup underneath, it just locks it down so it lasts longer than usual and if you do need to powder your face, you can easily add it on without feeling too cakey. The amazing part about this, it also comes in a travel size!
A classic handbag is always a great gift, but for a #GirlBoss it can’t be just any purse. I picked this Henri Bendel purse because it adds a fun twist on an extremely functional purse. This particular purse is on the larger side so it can hold everything she could ever need. There’s room for a 13″ laptop, planner, notebook, wallet, wristlet, etc. A functional purse helps a #GirlBoss stay at the top of her game.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Let me know what else you would get the #GirlBoss in your life. I’m not sure exactly what post will go up next, but be sure to follow my blog and Instagram so you can stay up to date!
