gift guide: my favorite gifts

I thought it was only fitting for my first Christmas Gift Guide to be my favorite gifts of all time. These are items that I have bought/received as gifts, so I can speak to how awesome they are. I limited it to items that I use once a week, however I use most of these daily.

1: Patagonia Los Gatos Vest- This vest is the coziest EVER. It keeps you super warm and goes with everything. I typically wear it over my school uniform on the way to school/switching between buildings because it is easy to carry around or stash in my backpack. Size up! (I'm a 0-2 and wear an S, it's pretty tight).
2: JBL Clip Speaker- I bought this speaker on Black Friday and have used it every day since! It's loud, waterproof, and super portable. It has Bluetooth but also a permanent aux connection, both of which work great!
3: Buxom "April" Lip Gloss- This lip gloss has been my go-to for two years, I love the minty-ness and the subtle color. 
4: YETI Lowball- My friends always make fun of me for carrying this "baby yeti" around school, but it truly is the perfect size for one cup of coffee. I use it every day!
5: Nike+ Apple Watch- I got this for my 17th birthday, and it has been a game changer. As a runner, I love it because it has automatic GPS connection (without your phone), and shows a map of your run. For daily use, the notifications and calendar are handy during school.
6: Scout Storage Bin- I have this bin in my room, and it basically holds everything I don't have a place for. My yoga mat, room decorations, extra sweatshirts, and more. Plus, it's sturdy enough to sit on, so this could be crucial if you're in a dorm!
7: J. Crew x New Balance Sneakers- If you're a long-time follower of the blog or go to my school, you'll know I wear these shoes more than any others. The gold is so fun, but they are still neutral enough for every day wear.
8: J. Crew Crossbody- My grandma gifted this to me for Christmas (grandma, if you're reading this, hi!!), and I absolutely love it. It fits my phone, card, keys, and a lip gloss, so everything I'll ever need.
9: Essential Oil Diffuser- I diffuse essential oils for everything-- focus, sleep, immune system, stress...the list goes on and on. I've found them to be super helpful, and so I really recommend trying them out!
10: Madeline & Co. Backpack- I use my Madeline & Co. backpack for every weekend trip and on plane rides. It has a laptop pocket and is really roomy!

All these gifts would be perfect for the teenage/college-aged girl in your life, or for you to add to your Christmas wishlist!

I hope you all have a wonderful start to the holiday season, 22 more sleeps till Christmas!
