I’ll keep this short and sweet since there are maybe seven million gift guides on the Internet right now and it’s a busy season! As I mentioned on my Instagram stories, I love sharing products that have genuinely made my life happier but I think there’s enough pressure to spend money this time of year/always so I’m trying to share these types of posts with you with that awareness and consciousness in mind.
Growing up in a Jewish family, my parents always gave me smaller gifts over the course of the eight nights with an emphasis on quality over quantity. Occasionally, I would receive one larger gift if there was something I was really hoping for, but mostly I received pretty little things like vintage music boxes, personalized stationery, a hand knit scarf, or new gloves. With that in mind, these are my top picks for the Francophile female in your life with a few special pieces that are perfect for mamas.
In addition to the gifts above, I’m adoring these items:
These pants for cute but cozy days at home, especially for new moms since they enable her to feel a tad more put together but are still gentle enough for healing bodies. Same goes for these casual pants.
For the busy lady who would kill for a weekly facial but HAHA in another life maybe? These Glossier serums are heaven sent for tired skin. This Glossier brow and highlighter duo is awesome for moms who can’t remember the last time they put on makeup but would like to so they don’t look like a mental patient in at least some of the photos with their baby. No? Just me?
This blanket has made an appearance on my Instagram several times in the last weeks. I love how it has a boho cozy feel but doesn’t feel like it belongs in a dorm room because we’re grownups now and it’s time to take down the tapestries and own some nice things. I also love this one.
Obviously, this Trés Chic tee is a must-own. She’ll love pairing it with this cozy cardigan that makes one feel like a trés chic alpaca. Toss in this llama mug to really seal the chic meets cozy deal.
Give back with a donation in her name to She Should Run, a non-partisan organization helping women become political candidates or Every Mother Counts, a non-profit organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.
Lastly, the bigger ticket gifts. For the gal looking to take crisper than an iPhone photos without having to know how to shoot in manual, this is her camera. A cashmere turtleneck that will last for years. I dream of owning this Barbour coat and I bet she will, too.
I hope this gives you some fun inspiration for giving this season. Happy gifting!
