What to get her?
That’s the question that’s been going through my mind.
I’d like to come up with something special, but that fits into our small Christmas budget as well.
You probably know what I’m talking about here.
I could get all the “regulars” – those “specials” that are displayed at the same stores we both shop at, but that feels a bit lame.
I want something more.
But that costs less.
And those kinds of gifts are much harder to find.
So I’ve spent hours and hours researching on that kind of gift.
And now I’m sharing what I’ve found with you. In case you might be facing that same dilemma.
Simple. Special. Affordable.
I think you’re really going to enjoy these lovely gift options!
15 Gift Ideas for All the Girls on Your Christmas List
1. Fresh Hope Prayer Journal
I took one look at the prayer journal and – with just the title alone – my eyes filled with tears. I don’t know about you, but so many of my friends could use some “fresh hope” right now! This simple prayer journal is such a lovely, encouraging gift to just about anyone. (Also available as “Fresh Start” and “Fresh Courage” if you prefer). Use code 3ORMORE for a 20% discount (Great for last-minute gifts). Or, use code 10ORMORE for a 27% discount.
P.S. This is what I got all my friends last year and they loved it! Available—>HERE
So I was given an apron like this one and I wear it ALL the time! I even get compliments on it (because I keep forgetting to take it off when our company arrives – lol!). This apron is seriously cute and it comes in quite a variety of patterns (you can see the many options here.) Available—>HERE
Whenever my friends see my Journaling Bible, they inevitably ask, “WHERE did you get that?” If you’re not familiar with journaling, this is a Bible with a large, lined margin where you can write notes, thoughts, prayers, or simply doodle. It’s a lovely and popular way to go through your Bible! Available—>HERE
This blanket is so comfortable, there’s something peaceful about being literally wrapped in scripture. I enjoy everything about it, and the kind words sent from the company are a lovely gesture. Highly recommended. Available—>HERE
I hardly know where to begin. I am such a big fan of Stitch Fix! Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t have much time or patience to go shopping, but would like to stay “up-to-date” and feel good about what I wear. That’s when my young adult daughters told me about Stitch Fix, a personal online shopping service. They love it and so do I! (Actually, our oldest son does too, as they have a line for men). You might want to give a gift certificate for a friend, or consider looking into it for yourself! Learn more—>HERE
Stitch Fix is available as a Subscription OR offers a Gift Card too!
6. Blameless by Christy Fitzwater
This is my pick for Book-of-the-Year. I loved everything about this book! The hope, the encouragement, and the gentle challenge. But don’t just take it from me. Here’s how another reader put it:
I’ve read hundreds of books in my life, many of them very good. But few have made me laugh so much, given me so much hope, and made me so eager to share its pages with my friends. ~ Elisabeth
I love wearing my Faithful Woman t-shirt! It’s my go-to comfortable and classy shirt to slip on for everyday. It’s also my go-to for gifts for friends and family! (Comes in different colors too). Available—>HERE
My husband and I wrote these little books a couple of years ago, but had no idea on how God was going to use them to encourage marriages all over the world.
You wouldn’t believe the difference reading these books will make in your marriage!! I highly recommend them and we read them over and over again. We love, love these books! ~ Teresa
You can purchase both books as a bundle at a discount (23% off!) OR individually as well.
I first bought this Belgian Waffle Maker for myself. Then our family enjoyed (and used it often!) so much that I decided to give them as gifts for my sister-in-law and a couple of close friends. Let’s just say it was a real hit! They’re still talking about it, so I consider that a definite score! 🙂 Available—>HERE
*To complete the gift, I also included this fun cookbook: Will It Waffle?: 53 Irresistible and Unexpected Recipes to Make in a Waffle Iron
10. Hope Heals by Katherine and Jay Wolf
Okay, here’s my other Top Pick for books this year. I’ve been giving this book to friends and family, left and right! So powerful. So fresh. So hard and yet hope-filled. This true story touched me deeply and I’m sure it will you too, along with anyone else you know who needs an encouraging word of healing. Available—>HERE
Know anyone who could use a little pampering? How about this one? Organic. Moisturizing. Relaxing. Treat your sister or a friend (maybe even yourself!) to this luxurious bath experience. These are a delightful treat! Available—>HERE
This is a particularly sweet and encouraging message from Proverbs 31 to give to a friend or sister! A rather unique and charming gift that comes in an organza bag, tucked into a box with a special quotation card. Available—HERE
Now don’t laugh. I think this is a fantastic gift! Personally, I’d love to get something like this. (Haha! and it would even match my apron.) While not particularly “handy,” I can fix a thing or two when I need to and this would give me the tools I’d need. Know anybody else like that? This one’s for them—->HERE
This jewelry box has a beautiful Italian inspired design with a rich burlwood finish and silver color inlay. It also has a photo frame lid – You can replace the picture with 4×6 inch personal photo. All 5-star reviews. Available–HERE
Every detail on these books are charming and have a truly old world feel. I like everything about them. Although made of faux leather, it looks and feels like the real thing (which makes it more reasonably priced as well). This one got rave reviews from many journal aficionados! Add a beautiful fountain pen to complete the package. Journal available—>HERE
