Gift Guide for Your Besties

Or your sister, clients, gal pals, really all the ladies in your life will most likely gush over one or all of these items! I know I would squeal with delight with one of these if it was under the tree (hint, hint Mr. H).  All of these are small, local businesses (to CA) and no one is paying me to share this post. I just truly believe in these products and love supporting small businesses as much as possible.

First up we have the PERFECT gift for the gal that loves bath & beauty products – but also loves to DIY. These DIY kits come from Handcrafted Honeybee (my latest obsession) and they come in all different sizes and styles. From face masks to lip balms, and deodorants to bath salts. They have all your bath and beauty needs covered! Each kit comes with literally everything you would need as well. And my favorite part – when ordering online, you can totally customize each kit to the scent or ad-ons to fit your friends (or yours – let’s me honest) needs. All the materials used are 100% natural and great alternatives to chemical infused products.

Next we have amazing body mist sprays from Olivine Atelier. If you follow me on instagram – you’ve probably seen a post of two of these beauties. And if you are a bride of mine – you’ve received the Love + Roses in the mail recently… or will soon (spoiler alert!) I’m totally obsessed with the Love + Salt spray as well. I mist it right into my hair for some natural salt spray texture. Feels just like I’ve been at the beach. This is a great stocking stuffer at such a great price!

I just discovered Piece By Paz, and I am SO glad I did in time for the holiday season! This husband and wife duo make these gorgeous beeswax + soy candles out of recycled wine bottles! How cool is that? And why infuse beeswax, you ask? Because beeswax is good for you! Who knew? The scents are so unique and beautiful – you’ll want one of each! Another cool detail, is those tags you see right there – you can literally put them in the ground & flowers will sprout! The tags are eco friendly and filled with seeds. Ugh, I’m obsessed. Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 8.43.31 AM

These yoga mats can be found at which is an online marketplace for high quality natural made products from local artisans all the way to bigger brands. They carry Affirmats which are latex and Phthalates free, and made from a jute/eco pvc blend. And the best part – they have these cool affirmations on them: “believe there is good in the world,” “I radiate love,” and the one in the photo is ” rise, and shine on.” These are really affordable for yoga mats, and would make such a great gift from the beginner to the full fledged yogi in your life =) Right now, you can get 20% these mats by entering SECRETSALE20 at checkout!! These are just my fav right now on the site – but there are so many other awesome products they feature – you could probably find something for everyone.

My good friend started an Etsy shop recently, it’s called Stone & Willow, and I am blown away by all the cuteness. I just ordered this deer pillow and I think I’ll keep it out all through Feb… or all year long for that matter! It is so so gorgeous and so beautifully handmade. I want to get a pillow case for all the ladies in my life! Plus, she has adorable ornaments if you have an ornament gift exchange party – those always tend to sneak up on me =) Anyways, amazing handmade products, made right here in LA!


And last, but certainly not least! Savour This Kitchen’s 4 spice blends would make the perfect gift for the cook (or if you’re like me – the one who can’t cook, but the spice blends help me look like I can!) in your life. Every spice is dairy free and there is no sugar or salt added. And let me tell you, they totally transform a meal! I also love how they have recipes on the best ways to use them right on their website!


I hope this gives you some unique, and swoon worthy ideas for gifts for the ladies in your life… or if you’re like me, you can pin them and show them to your husband for YOUR wish list ;-) Am I right, or am I right? Stay tuned for more posts from my 12 Days of Christmas series that I’ll be recapping on the left <— sidebar for more gift ideas!


  1. What a unique set of gifts!!! Love all of your suggestions. :)
