There are so many gift options for females. It can certainly be overwhelming to try to find a thoughtful gift.
Whether you’re shopping for your bestie, girlfriend, wife, or mother, our holiday gift guide includes it all. These gift ideas are environmentally or socially conscious. Some support small businesses, and others are available on Amazon Prime if you’re a last-minute shopper like me. There’s a little something for everybody!
Rose Gold French Press*: Take the everyday French press up a notch with this rose gold version. The color is cheery on a cold winter day and perfect for entertaining. It’s a great gift for the coffee lover in your life!
Generous Coffee: Need something to pair with the French press and campfire mug? Gifting Generous Coffee supports small farmers and provides livable wages for workers in the countries where the coffee is harvested. Plus, it’s high-quality coffee, so it tastes great.
Hand-beaded Necklace and Bracelet: Through the Kutoa Project, proceeds from these jewelry pieces go toward providing counseling and therapeutic services to Kenyan youth who have experienced trauma.
TOMS Booties*: We all know TOMS, but what I love recently is that they are designing shoes that are trendy and can be worn in different seasons. These booties made it on my Christmas list this year. I like the pattern, but they also come in a dozen other colors.
ABLE Hailu Cognac Wallet*: All ABLE products are made by women in developing countries, and the proceeds go directly toward providing jobs and livable wages to them. The functional wallet allows you to remove the coin pouch in the back and keep your phone in it. I love the cognac but they also have it in a black version!
Matr Boomie Peacock Eyeglass Holder*: I recently fell in love with the brand Matr Boomie. All of their products are sourced from women and minority-group artisans in rural areas of India. That’s what makes this peacock eyeglass holder such a great gift for your mom, grandma, or other glasses-wearer in your life.
Matr Boomie Picture Frame*: I always love giving picture frames with memorable photos inside. This patterned frame from Matr Boomie is socially conscious, too.
Outdoor Blanket*: This blanket from Open Road Goods is responsibly sourced, like all of the company’s products. The super trendy design has a practical side; one side is water-resistant.
Lighted Makeup Mirror*: This mirror has such good reviews on Amazon and I know several girls who swear it’s changed their makeup routine. If you’ve got a beauty lover in your life, this mirror is the gift for them.
Beats Wireless Headphones*: Beats headphones are definitely a splurge, but these high-quality ones are wireless and compatible with the new iPhones.
Ray-Ban Round Aviators*: A pricey purchase, but Christmas gifts are supposed to be special, right? Everyone loves (and looks good in) Ray-Bans, so you can’t go wrong gifting this classic pair.
We hope you have a joyous Christmas season!
