Hi Ladies! While I know how wonderful the holidays are, I also know how stressful and daunting this time of year can be. Decorating the house, finding that perfect dress for your holiday work party, getting food for all the potlucks you’re invited to, buying tons of gifts for your friends and family on top of managing your everyday life, it can be a LOT. Girl, trust me, I know the struggle. I’m hoping my Holiday series of gift guides, makeup tutorials and style post will help elevate some of the unwanted stress. Today we’re starting out with a gift guide for the chic professional.

The Gray Trench – Give your sister-friend a little something that’s a bit different from her traditional black coat. This gray trench will turn any Plain Jane outfit into a timeless, classic number. If you want to get your money’s worth this year, spend it on something that she’ll be grabbing over and over again. Especially, if she lives in DC…one, can never have enough thick coats! Click here
Ralph Lauren Tote – I’m always on the hunt for the perfect work bag. I need a bag that will fit my laptop, my planner, my lunch, my makeup essentials and my wallet – a lot, right? Well, this tote definitely fits the bill. Not only is it spacious, it comes in different colors. If she needs a little pop of color in her life, the bag comes in dark pine, bourbon and falcon.

Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint – One can never go wrong with a classic red lip, especially one like RihRih’s new lip paint. As a professional, she’s probably in and out of meetings, grabbing lunch on the go and ending the day pretty late. The last thing she needs to worry about is her lipstick wearing off or smudging. One good application in the A.M. is all she’ll really need. Besides that, Fenty Beauty is all the rage right now. She’ll definitely be excited about this gift. Click here
Agenda / Planner – This one is a no brainer. As your professional friend has a jammed packed schedule, help her organize her life with a cute planner. Stylish, interactive agendas from brands like Band.o, Erin Condren and Kate Spade make planning a whole lot easier. I adore my Band.o agenda! Not only is it the cutest planner ever(!), it comes equipped with stickers that will have her thrilled to start planning for 2018.
A Wine Subscription – Girl, yes! Tis’ TRUE…While the myth of Santa is questionable, this subscription is not! It is very much real! When my good friend Grace told me about Winc, her wine club membership, I almost fell out of my chair. Give your friend something to wine, pun intended, down with this holiday season. She’ll love you forever. It’s free to join. Get more information about the subscription here. Click here
Anything Coffee – As a professional, WE NEED OUR COFFEE. Or at least the majority of us. Some people can go-and-go-and-go without a sip of coffee, but if your friend is anything like me, girlfriend isn’t going ANYWHERE without her Jo. Lately, I’ve been obsessing over these glass mugs. A personalized mug with her favorite type of coffee or even a gift card to her favorite coffee shop are always good ideas as well.
Well, ladies, I hope these gifts were helpful. Shopping for people can be difficult, but I hope this eases the stress a bit. The next gift guide is for your makeup loving friend. Stay tuned!
