Beauty Gift Guide

beauty gift guide - stocking stuffers

Last week we shared our gift guide for men, then we shopped for the women in our lives with our women’s gift guide and now we have fabulous beauty finds in our beauty gift guide. Many of them make excellent stocking stuffers, and most are some of our tried and true favorites. Let’s get right to it.

  1. Uncle Bud’s HempFace Mask: Jenna does this face mask weekly, and has been obsessed with it for over a year.
  2. JR watkins hand cream: This lotion smells wonderful (several scents to choose from), and it’s a rich cream for those dry, winter hands. Jessica keeps one next to her bed, and Jennas keeps one in her purse at all times.
  3. Sara Happ lip gloss: This is a pretty shade of pink for those luscious lips.
  4. Nars cream blush and eys stick: This make up stick is a make-up bag necessity. We’ve had it for years, and use it for blush, and sometimes eye too.
  5. Rosebud Salve: Dry lips no more with this set of lip balms.
  6. Living Proof Dry Shampoo: Jessica has oily hair and has tried many different brands of dry shampoo to combat the grease, and this is her favorite. This is the best dry shampoo we’ve found and perfect for those non-shower days.
  7. Billie razor: This is our favorite razor. Jessica has been using for over a year. They send refills every 6 months or so. One less thing to think about from the store, and a colorful package that arrives in the mail at just the right time (you can set the frequency).
  8. Dime perfume sampler set: Try all the lovely scents in this set for $20. This is a great gift for those teens in your life.
  9. Native deodorant: Keep the smells at bay with a more natural approach (aluminum free), and it smells yummy. We use this everyday.
  10. Botanic Tree Glycolic face wash: This is our favorite face wash. It’s affordable, smells good, and has small beads for exfoliation.
  11. Steamer and exfoliator: This is on our list this year for that at-home steaming, following by exfoliation and black head removal. Can’t wait to try it.
  12. This is not in the photo above, and we cannot even believe we forgot it when we put together the collage, but these Mighty Hero acne patches are our nightly heroes. These are amazing for tweens, teens and husbands, too. Seriously, amazing!

Happy shopping.

Christmas Shopping: Women’s Holiday Gift Guide

women's gift guide, best, gifts for women this holiday season

Yesterday we shopped for the men, and shared our Men’s Gift Guide. Now let’s shop for the women. Below are some of our favorites.

  1. On Shoes: We are obsessed with these shoes. We have a pair, and want another!
  2. Vuori Performance Joggers: These are so comfortable, we cannot get enough and recommend them for every woman. Seriously, amazing.
  3. Vetruvi Diffuser: This is so pretty. The black and terracotta caught our eye. We love our essential doTERRA oils, so this would be a pretty addition to any room.
  4. Gigi Pipp Hat: We invested in a Gigi Pipp hat early this year, and we are still thrilled about the splurge. Give that trendy woman in your life a beautiful hat she can wear around town. Brook will help you pick out the perfect hat, and she ships within the U.S.
  5. Quay Sunglasses: We love our Quay sunglasses, and this new color is fabulous. Second favorite sunglasses are Carrera and third (most affordable option) are Goodr sunglasses. Goodr are an awesome gift for kids, too, and a perfect stocking stuffer.
  6. Milk Frother: Jenna swears by this frother. Nothing like a coffee shop-like coffee in the morning.
  7. Electric Tea Kettle: This is one of our most favorite things. We have one similar to this, and it’s worked for years, but this one from Crate and Barrel is so so chic.
  8. Snap-up Fleece: Jessica bought this last year, and it’s still a favorite of hers. It’s warm and cute!
  9. Authentic Antlers: Maybe it’s because we’re Colorado born and raised, and spent a lot of time in the mountains, but we LOVE authentic antlers from LA Antler Co. Jessica has one in her house, and loves it! Addie will get you the antlers of your dreams – just message her on IG.
  10. Layla Weighted Blanket: We’ve yet to try this sweeping trend, but we love the feel of a heavy blanket on us at night, so I can imagine how much we would love this.
  11. The Midnight Library: This is a great book on the perspective of life and the choices we make. It’s a quick read. Whether you get this book, or a different one, make sure to give her book’s greatest accessory – this neck reading light. We use it every night, and it’s rechargeable.
  12. SodaStream: Fizz the season with a sparking water machine! If you have a girlfriend in your life that likes bubbly during the day (or evening), this is a great gift. In fact, the whole family will like this one. My kids use ours every day, all day. Black Friday Deals available now.

Happy Shopping!

Shopping for Christmas: Mens Gift Guide

holiday shopping, mens gift guide

The holidays are our favorite time of the year. Being together with loved ones around good food, and making precious memories are what we hold most dear. Our family has beautiful traditions, and we want our children to hold those close to their hearts (just like we have), more than the presents and all the “excess” the media and retail outlets prioritize.

Having said that, we like to give a good gift like anybody, and we are going to get our holiday shopping done early this year. As we run around trying to clean and cook for a lovely holiday, we want to have those shopping items off our list. Plus with all the struggling supply chains, shipping delays and job vacancy woes, there’s not time to waste.

We’ve put together Christmas gift guides to get those ideas flowing for you. We hope it’s helpful and you find something for the man/men in your life.

Men’s Holiday Gift Guide

  1. No Bull Shoes: These are so good looking, and Jessica’s husband loves them. He had them for a year, and they’ve held up great. No bull shoes:
  2. Vuori Joggers: Just like we love being comfortable, the men do too. These feel like butter, and your man will thank you.
  3. G Shock Watch: These watches have such rugged look, which we love. Plus, they are excellent quality. We avoid the apple watch, so this is a perfect go-to for us. Perfect for teens, too.
  4. Theragun: This is actually on our husbands list this year! If he’s extra nice, he will wake up on Christmas morning to this.
  5. Stanley Water Bottle: This is our favorite water bottle, so let’s hydrate the men, too!
  6. Greenlights Book: We absolutely LOVED this book. It’s a wonderful read/gift for any man or woman in your life.
  7. Men’s Cheyanne Sorel Shoes: These almost look like Converse, but they look warm, comfortable and not bulky at all. Plus, they are water bottle for the winter elements.
  8. Huk Waypoint Hoodie: The men in our lives LOVE these shirts. They are so comfortable, they wear them year-round. If your husband loves to fish, they have fantastic fishing shirts, too!
  9. JBL Speaker: We have both big and small JBL speakers, and bring them everywhere. We love them, and the quality of sound. Also, a good gift for the teen in your life (our 13-year-old is getting it this year).
  10. Microspikes: If you live in an area with snow, these are a must. We like snowshoes, but use these way more. They are easy to travel with, quick to put on, and provide great traction. Great for women, too.
  11. Carhartt Beanie: There’s something about a man in a Carhartt beanie that we love.
