Get It Girl Gift Guide

Happy Thanksgiving! Today we not only celebrate all our blessings, but we are also gearing up for the biggest shopping season of the year. Tomorrow all heck will break loose, well sadly enough, most stores will open tonight and the madness will begin. It's time to get serious and start our holiday shopping. We have less than a month to get all our gifts purchased and wrapped. I am hoping to help you ladies out with some of your shopping over the next several weeks. Today, I wanted to start with what I like to call the "Get It Girl" gift guide. 

Cosmetic Bag // Alex and Ani Bangle // Dorothy Parker Journal Set // Plaid Scarf // Hair Ties // Sequin Slippers // Trader Joe's Cookbook // Mittens // Pajama Pants // Naked Basic Eyeshadow Palette //  Polka Dot Flask // Leopard Ear Muffs // Essie Polish Set // Passport Case // Glitter Bow Belt // Kate Spade iPhone Case // Zebra Socks // Sequin Happy Shirt // Coffee Mugs // Soap & Glory Butter Body Butters 

We all have ladies to shop for whether it's for family, friends, a Secret Santa at work, Bunco gift exchange or possibly for ourselves. I searched high and low for some unique gifts that won't break the bank. Almost everything above is $30 or less...there are just a few that are right under $40. They make fabulous stocking stuffers and a few are pretty bold. 

I almost died when I came across these coffee mugs from Urban Outfitters. You guys, they seriously have some of the most clever and hilarious gifts in their kitchen and bar section

I can't get enough of all the Alex and Ani bangles that Nordstrom has to offer. These are so fun stacked and great for giving throughout the year for special occasions, birthdays, anniversaries or "just because" gifts. 

And of course I had to throw in a few Forever 21 finds. The "I Need Lipstick" cosmetic bag is right up my alley. Fill it with some lip gear and you have yourself an adorable gift ready to go for less that $20-$25. 

You can never go wrong with giving a pair of comfy pajama pants coupled with sequin slippers. I know I ask for this every single year. Not only will your loved ones sit warm and cozy by the fire, but they will be doing it in style.

I hope I sparked some gift giving ideas. There is so much out there, the emails promoting sales are bombarding my account and it can be so overwhelming. At the end of the day, no matter what you buy it's the thought that counts. It's definitely not the reason for the season, but so much fun scouting gifts that have some thought put in them.

Stay tuned, I will be posting some Black Friday sales from my favorite retailers bright and early tomorrow. You guys the deals are insane!

Happy shopping and be safe out there!

P.S. It's totally okay if you go ahead and forward this post to your husband/boyfriend/significant other..they need all the help they can get, right? You're welcome.
