Christmas and holiday shopping can be a total nightmare. I know I always get overwhelmed whenever I brave the mall to get my shopping done. It’s almost paralyzing, amIright?? What do you get for this friend or that friend? For sister-in-law, who’s tastes are so ambiguous that you don’t actually know what she actually would like? For that co-worker you barely know but drew as part of an office Secret Santa? Never fear, dear friends! I’ve put together a super helpful gift guide so you can get just the right gift for all the lovely ladies in your life, whether they are a fashionista, an artsy craftsy girl, busy mama, foodie/chef, or home decor lover.

I found most of these gifts through several of my favorite stores. All of these places have great, unique and affordable gift options for everyone on your Christmas list. I just love a good deal on a great gift, don’t you?? And since it’s Black Friday, you may also score even bigger discounts on all these fab products! The links below are affiliate links – it’s no additional cost to you, but Dwell Beautiful gets a small commission should you decide to buy something! Find my full disclosure policy here.
