One of the greatest joys of the holidays comes with giving. Over the years, I’ve fallen in love with the gift-giving experience, as it’s a fun way to share our love with others (while making them feel special). Not to mention, seeing the joyful look on someone’s face when they’re surprised to receive the perfect gift! It’s a win-win for everyone. But don’t just take my word for it…
Did you know that it’s scientifically proven that gift-giving boosts your own happiness? Giving gifts activates endorphins and dopamine in your brain. These natural chemicals are part of the body’s reward system and work to make you feel good. So, when you give someone a gift, it results in making you both feel good. No wonder they call it “spreading joy” because that’s what you’re literally doing!
Whether you’re shopping for the home-entertainer, the DIY-er who loves to get crafty, or even the fashion & beauty lover – here are 5 inspiring holiday gift ideas for the gals in your life.
That’s not all! One lucky reader will win a gorgeous gift that will surely put a smile on her face this season.
Holiday Gifts for Her
Cricut Joy Machine & Accessories
This innovative, compact, and easy-to-use machine makes it fun and fast to create original DIY greeting cards, gift tags, and more. Complete with all the tools, deluxe paper supplies, and accessories she’ll need to make beautiful Christmas, New Year’s, and Birthday cards, this all-in-one technology offers an easy way to get crafty and creative this season.

Chocolat-e Gift Box
Containing an assortment of gourmet, adult-friendly individually-wrapped chocolates, this box is truly a delicious and indulgent gift for any chocolate lover or hostess. Crafted by elite chocolatier, Frédéric Cassel (an award-winning French chocolatier and pastry chef) who held the prestigious title of “Best Pastry Chef in France” (in 1999 and 2003), these exquisite chocolates are designed to be savored, not just eaten. The Discovery Box by Chocolat-e was created with the customer in mind; to provide a memorable tasting experience that elevates their holiday celebrations.

Tree Hut Candy Cane Sugar Scrub
Since every woman wants to look and feel her best, inspire her to indulge in a little self-care and at-home pampering with this sumptuous body scrub. Infused with the refreshing scent of peppermint, this natural sugar scrub makes it easy to exfoliate dry, dull skin. In addition to sloughing away dead skin cells (revealing healthy, youthful skin below the surface), the hydrating natural ingredients in the Tree Hut Candy Cane Sugar Scrub (including Shea Butter, Evening Primrose, Avocado, Macadamia, Sweet Almond, Safflower, and Orange Oils) hydrate the skin, leaving it soft and silky.
One of the most cherished gifts that will last a lifetime is the gift of jewelry. For any woman who loves timeless, elegant, and feminine pieces, Helzberg Jewelry offers a wide variety of beautiful designs in sterling silver and 14k gold. From bracelets (like this delicate gold chain bracelet) to earrings, necklaces, and more – the 150-store brand has a reputation for creating high-quality, exquisitely-crafted pieces. Shop Helzberg’s curated collection of top jewelry gifts for under $600.
For the hostess who loves to entertain or whip up craft cocktails, Figenza Liquor offers premium natural flavored vodka infused with the taste of refreshing figs, straight from the heart of the Mediterranean. Not only is this vodka 31% alcohol, but it’s also gluten-free and contains 6x double-filtrated, ultra-premium Scandinavian glacier water. To get her inspired to celebrate this season here’s an easy and elegant holiday cocktail recipe idea to accompany this gourmet gift. Plus, enjoy 10% off all orders with code FIGSFORHER21 (now until 12/10/21).
