We all have someone in our lives who’s impossible to shop for. For me, it’s my MIL. She has everything, and if she doesn’t have it she buys it for herself. Every year I struggle to find something that is unique and that she’ll (hopefully) like. The last few years I lucked out and managed to find perfect presents well in advance – like June. This year, not so much.
Which brings me to this gift guide. No matter who this impossible person is for you, hopefully, you’ll find something that will suit her. I broke down the categories into ‘dominant types’. I know we are never one thing, but this was the easiest way to categorize, rather than just randomly throwing out links.
For the Woman Who’s Always Put Together
Anyone else’s nails take some punishment this year? With nail salons closing and anxiety at an all-time high, many nails have been neglected. Well no more with this at-home gel manicure kit by Le Mini Macaron. This all-in-one set is perfect for home and travel.
Here’s a makeup kit that she will be excited about – The Sunset Kit by Ilia. I was turned onto this company by my mom and I’m obsessed with the mascara. This is a great kit to try out some of their top selling items.
This KITSCH Satin Beauty Sleep Set will make sure her blow out lasts and lasts.
For the Hard Working Woman
I’ve tried a million different planners and I’ve finally found the only planner that works for me – Passion Planner. I have both the weekly (in large) and the daily for all my planning needs. The weekly stays at my desk and allows me to see my week at-a-glance, and the daily gives me plenty of space to write down my millions of to-dos.
As a mom and a workin’ lady, I’ve had my fair share of luke-warm coffees. The problem is, I love piping hot coffee. Kopi Mug is a mug that will keep your lady friend’s coffee warm as long as she needs.
For the Woman Who Can’t Sit Still
For your friend who is always on the go, but can’t find the time to fit in a workout, these Bala Weighted Bangles are just the ticket. Wear them while doing laundry or dishes and she’ll feel it!
Or if you have a friend who never misses a workout, this Kettlebell will keep up with her needs. 6 different weights at the press of a button, this is a step up for her home gym. This company also makes Dumbbells, so you can help kit out her entire home gym.
If the stay-at-home orders have her itching for a change of scenery, Niceseats will at least give her some peace of mind while traveling.
For the Woman Who Entertains
As someone who loves lighting candles for company, I have my eye on this gorgeous Brass Candle Snuffer. It seems extra because it absolutely is.
If she’s into mixing cocktails, this subscription from Shaker & Spoon is a perfect match. They send all the ingredients (except for the alcohol) to make 4 drinks from 3 different recipes (12 drinks total). It’s the perfect at-home date night!
Speaking of drinking…Anyone drinking out of this art deco Coupe will instantly feel fancier. It’s just science.
In 2020 everyone dabbled with making their own bread. This Bread Maker will help elevate her loaves so everyone thinks they are bought from the artisan baker at the Farmer’s Market.
Movie Theatres may be closed, but not for your friend who hosts everyone in her backyard. This Popcorn Maker will make it feel like you’re at the drive-in.
