Christmas Gift Guide 2014: For the Ladies

I know, we're only a few weeks into November, but hear me out. Every year, I seem to leave gifts to the last minute; although I love giving them. I'm a firm believer in giving items that are meaningful, whether they be from a local shop, handmade, or from a small business. So, to avoid running to Target a few days before Christmas (eek!), tackle your gifts now so that you can eat lots of turkey, sip on apple cider, and hang up stockings without worrying about what presents you should get your loved ones. 

Up until a week before Christmas, I'll be featuring several types of gift guides that appeal to lots of different folks. Ones for the cooks, new mammas, nature lovers, fashionistas, romantic souls, best friends and siblings, ect. 

Today's guide is for the ladies in your life. Whether they be your BFF, sister, mom. 

1. Sunday Suppers cook book. This one is still on my wish list, but I've browsed through it and it's beautifully made with some great looking recipes { 23- } 

 2. How great are these midcentury candle holders? They'd sure make a one-of-a-kind gift. { 17- } 

3. An agenda planner is a must for a busy lady -- plus, 7% of sales are donated to a no-kill Pet Adoption center. Which makes it even cooler. { 26 - }

4. Turkish towels are the way to go. I've made the switch to only using turkish towels because they are prettier, take up less room, and are better on the environment. The one shown is from ABC Carpet & Home, but I've found some great ones on Ebay. { 15 - }

5. Pretty Baggu cream drawstring purse { 140 - } 

6. I think just about anyone would love to have this Half moon collar necklace -- it looks expensive and chic, but it's under 30 bucks! { 28 - } 

7. Keihl's lip balm is a must { 7 - } 

8. Coconut milk bath soak, perfect for soothing that dry winter skin (and it's made with quality, vegan ingredients!)  { 32 - }
