Holiday Gift Guide

Holiday Gift Guide

Shopping for gifts is one of my favorite parts of the holiday season! I've gathered together a few things that will hopefully give you some inspiration as we get closer and closer to exchanging presents with friends and family.

For the Girl Bosses

Glossier products work to highlight your girlfriend's natural beauty and play up her confidence even more. Shop everything from moisturizers to makeup to my personal favorites -- the face mask duo. 

For the Wanderlusters

Every adventure seeker needs a good bikini to explore in. Whether she plans on catching a tan on the beach or hitting the hot tubs after a day in the snow, ISHINE365 has a bikini for every girl out there. With over 800 suits, you're sure to find something perfect! Use code ALISON15 at checkout to get an extra 15% off your order!

For the Health Conscious

Your loved ones hold a special place in your heart just as you hold a special place in theirs. Help keep them heart healthy this holiday season with a QardioArm! This wireless blood pressure monitor syncs with smartphones and is easy and fun to use. Get a different color for each of your family members. The Qardio app even allows you to share measurements with one another if you need to keep an eye on your parents or grandparents!

For Everyone on the List 

Whether they're just getting a practice started or already walks everywhere on their hands, a good yoga mat is a thoughtful gift for anyone. The year I got my parents yoga mats for Christmas was the year they really kicked off their practice. I couldn't have been happier to see them start taking classes and doing something they enjoyed while taking care of themselves at the same time. Check out this review of the top 8 yoga mats if you need some inspiration. The top two on the list are two of my favorites :)   

Candles are one of my favorite Christmas gifts to give and to receive. There are so many unique fragrances out there -- something perfect for everyone! Some of my favorites below:
