Taking a page out of Oprah’s book this year and bringing you a list of 50 of my very favorite things! Also sharing 10 things that are on my wish list – so hopefully this inspires a few ideas for your list ;).
It’s so easy to get caught up in making magic happen for everyone else that you forget about yourself, so I’m here to encourage you to treat yo’self because you work HARD!
As a note – every item image you see below can be clicked to take you straight to the product to shop – the buttons beneath each pic are also shoppable.
Here are 60+ gift ideas for women for Christmas – all my favorites!
Val’s Favorite Things
1 // Old Navy Joggers – these are the softest pj/lounge pants you will put on your body.
2 // Moonlight Pajamas – are these a splurge? Yes. I’ve had mine for a few years and while there are dupes that I like out there, these are just the best.
3 // Turkish Beach Towel/Blanket – my favorite towels for the pool and the beach… the more you wash them, the softer and more absorbant they get.
4 // Spanx Faux Leather Leggings – these are out of the rotation for me because I’m pregnant and they are SO compressive but I have owned them for a few years and they’re worth every penny.
5 // Asymmetrical Zip Sherpa Pullover – I’ve had this for a few months and it’s my absolute favorite sherpa piece… I wear a medium for length and it’s warm, washes well, and the neckline is super cute zipped up or unzipped.
6 // Aerie High Waisted Leggings – my go-to lightweight leggings with ZERO compression. I wear a small in the regular length and own them in 4 colors.
7 // Olaplex Shampoo – it’s just the best shampoo – I tried it this summer and I’m a believer! Has helped my hair’s texture and it just feels so so soft.
8 // STOK Cold Brew – I was making my own cold brew for awhile but this stuff just cannot be beat.
9 // Le Papier Studio Silhouettes – I have these of all my kids and they are stunning and classic.
11 // Double-Walled Champagne Flutes – these champagne flutes are amazing because they’re stemless but double-walled so your hand won’t warm up your champs. Ready to bring these back into my life in March ;).
12 // Bug Bite Thing – I was skeptical about this little device but we used it all summer long – draws out the stuff that makes mosquito bites itch. Great stocking stuffer!
13 // Hanging Colander – I recently replaced my old hanging colander because it was breaking and this one is awesome because it hands from the faucet or the side of our sink and it’s a great price.
14 // Natural Calm – I love this magnesium supplement (obviously consult a Dr. if you have questions) – it’s good to promote sleep, reduce stress, etc.
15 // Olaplex Conditioner – I’ve also been using and loving Olaplex conditioner since this summer. A little goes a long way so don’t be scared of the price tag.
16 // Madewell Tote – my ride or die leather bag… it’s a crossbody and a tote, the quality is fantastic and it’s such a timeless piece.
17 // Camo Blanket Scarf – this beauty is new to me this season and I love how expensive it looks and feels – great deal for the price!
18 // Fringe Fleece Throw – I bought myself one of these during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and it’s one of our most sought-after blankets in the house. You know, the kind everyone fights over? This is that.
19 // Starbucks – one of my favorite ways to treat myself 😉
20 // Athleta Pullover – I LOVE this asymmetrical zip pullover. A splurge piece but I’ve owned mine for a year and it’s great quality. I wear a small.
21 // Body Blur – this is the BEST for giving you a little extra glow. Any time I look halfway decent it’s because I have this on. I wear the ‘latte’ color.
22 // Native Deodorant – my go-to scent is Cucumber & Mint… this natural deodorant works for me and it’s light and fresh!
23 // Nest Holiday Candle – I know scents are personal and everyone has their fave but the Holiday scent from Nest is AMAZING. A candle is a splurge but it lasts the entire holiday season – I treat myself to a triple wick every year 🙂
24 // NARS Concealer – I don’t wear face makeup but this is my favorite concealer for breakouts and undereyes. A tube lasts FOREVER.
25 // Dr Brandt No More Baggage – my absolute favorite undereye depuffing gel. And it’s 45% off right now with code BFDRB45.
26 // Loveseat Camping Chair – bought one of these for myself for soccer season (because #soccermom) and I LOVE it. Comfy and fits 2 adults.
27 // Amazon Coat – you know my love for this coat that feels like a sleeping bag runs DEEP. I own the grey and wear an XS but could use a small with the bump.
28 // L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray – this stuff is the BEST hairspray at a great price. Brushes right out, too.
29 // Maternity Tank Two Pack – I’ve been LIVING in these and they’re such a great price, so soft, so stretchy. I wear a small.
30 // 6 Foot Braided iPhone Chargers – I’ve had these for a few months and they’ve held up so nicely, no fraying, give a good charge and they’re 6 feet long – no one needs a 3 foot charger, give me alllll the length please. (insert ‘that’s what she said’ joke here)
31 // Living Proof Dry Shampoo – the BEST dry shampoo… actually absorbs oil.
32 // Eyebrow Pencil – I was addicted to my Anastasia brow pencil til I tried this dupe and I’m a believer. I wear dark brunette.
33 // Core 10 Camo Leggings – these are the best camo leggings I’ve found @ a great price to boot. I’m too pregnant to wear mine right now ;).
34 // Minted Notebook Journal – I get one of these for myself every year and carry in my bag. Such a great little journal, especially for the price!
35 // Coop Pillow – I’ve been sleeping on this since July and LOVE it – bought one for Chris for Christmas. It’s a must.
36 // Blue IKEA Bags – I LOVE these things… they’re indestructible and HUGE and inexpensive. I keep a few in the car at all times.
37 // Tweezerman tweezers – this combo has the slant and the point and they’re tiny so perfect for home, your purse, or the car. I have one in all of the above.
38 // Mini Drinking Glasses – these little guys are stackable and so cute for drinks (wine!) and as little bowls.
39 // Samsung Frame TV – this is the TV we have in our family room and I LOVE it! We’ve had it for a year and I love that it looks like a piece of art when it’s not being used + it’s a smart TV so we stream everything through it… Netflix, Disney+, Prime, etc.
40 // Beaded Name Bracelet – I have one of these for each child and I LOVE them. Way easier than making them yourself, trust me ;).
41 // UGG Alena Slippers – hands down, my favorite slipper. Wear them up or cuffed down. I’ve had mine for years and they can be worn inside or out. I just added a new insole to mine and they’re like-new. Size up one full size (I’m a 7 and wear an 8 in these).
42 // Babyliss Straightening Iron – I’ve been using this since my CHI crapped out this spring and I love it! Great little tool.
44 // Silicone Straws – I’m a firm believer that we should all be using reusable straws and this pack is a great deal and the colors are all beautiful (no neons here!).
45 // Aviate STL Hat – covers up even the worst of my mom hair days 😉
46 // Instacart Subscription – this is my go-to grocery delivery service – we use it weekly – or more 😉
47 // Pottery Barn Drying Rack – LOVE this… I have 2 in my laundry room. Gorgeous and functional!
48 // USB Rechargable Lighter – buy this for your stocking! No lighter fluid so you just recharge it with a USB cable. And the rose gold is chic AF. Trust me, you need it.
49 // Funny Bunny by OPI – this is my go-to nail color and on my nails 99.9% of the time. White but not too bright or white. True love.
50 // Silk Pillowcase – silk pillowcases are good for your skin and hair and they just feel luxe. This one is great @ a great price and it zips so it doesn’t slip off the pillow.
51 // Distressed Denim Jacket – I LOVE this distressed denim jacket and wear a small. Perfectly worn-in feeling and at a great price – it’s always under $50 but goes on sale often!
