A Sunny State of Mind Last-Minute Gift Guide

EEP! There are only EIGHT days until Christmas! At this statement, you're probably in one of two camps: excitement or excitement lined with anxiety because you haven't finished Christmas shopping. If you're in the second, have no fear -- here are my top ideas for yourself, your bff, aunt, sister, mom, girlfriend, or grandma. Happy gifting!

On My Wishlist

1. Bathtub/Bed Reading Tray | Amazon | $39
I'm pretty sure this is the most useful contraption I've ever seen. It's a bath reading tray that can fold into a laptop bed tray! Complete TWO cupholders.

2. L’ange Le Gloss | Ulta | $109
My trusty Bedhead straightener from 2010 is nearing its final days...  it only works with the cord at a certain angle (yikes!). So I'm asking for this Le Gloss straighter to replace it because it has the same wide plates that I love.

3. Eva NYC Healthy Heat Blow Dryer | Anthropologie | $60
My mom has this blow dryer and I figured it's time I stop stealing hers. It makes my hair the silkiest it's ever been -- basically a miracle worker. 

4. FP Slippers | Free People | $60
Upping my WFH uniform with these furry slides.

5. Splits 59 Flare Leggings (order by 12/20) | S59 | $98
I got these in gray earlier in the year and am asking for another pair in navy. I am obsessed with the high waist and the flare is a chic upgrade to normal leggings.

6. Claw Clip Set | Amazon | $13
Just trying to embrace my Gen Z culture with these claw clips.

7. Velvet Headband | Amazon | $9
I love this headband because it's a subtle color and the velvet is perfect for winter. 

8. Nuuly Subscription | $68 (if you use my link for $20 off!)
If you know me, there's a 100% chance I've said "thanks, it's from my Nuuly!" to you. Nuuly is Urban/Anthro/Free People's monthly clothing rental box -- you get to pick 6 pieces per month!

9. Boysmells Votives | Garmentory (small biz!) | $48
I've grown a small collection of Boysmells candles over the past year. I love this votive set because it allows you to try 3 scents and channel SPRING!

10. Just Because Stationery Set | Darling (small biz!) | $25
Living far away from the people I love, it's fun to send snail mail to remind them that I'm not just a person on a FaceTime screen. This set from Darling is so stylish and fun. 

11. Bath Favorites | Honest Bubble Bath $12 and Dr. Teals Epsom Salt $5 | Target
I have a routine of taking a bath every Sunday (aka a sabBATH), so I'm asking for bubble bath and bath salts to add even more luxury to the Sunday-scary-combatting routine. 

Gifts I've Received/Given That Have Stood The Test of Time

1. Madewell Zip Wallet | $20 with code BIGTIME | Order by 12/19
At this point, most of my friends own this zip wallet. I've had mine for 6 years and I am NOT gentle with it (lots of water, scratches, rolling around in the bottom of my bag), and it's still in great shape. It's too late to get it personalized in time for Christmas but you can do it on the spot (for free!) in some Madewell stores. 

2. Glossier Boy Brow | $16 | Order by 12/21
My holy grail beauty product. 

3. Artist Loft Journal | Michael's | $7 
After trying PILES of different journals (even Moleskine), this has to be my favorite. The pages are super smooth and bleed-resistant but my favorite part is that it has TWO ribbon bookmarks. 

4. 13mm Gold Hoops | Amazon | $50
I got these for Christmas last year and have worn them basically every day since! They're perfect for looking put-together but are weightless. These hoops and a swipe of Boy Brow and I'm out the door.
For your best friend, mom, or self -- this is my favorite bible with huge margins for art and journaling.
