Gift Guide Holiday 2015

MuffinChanel Holiday Gift Guide 2015.Hello December!

Here is my Gift Guide Holiday 2015 with prices ranging from $6 to $96. These gifts are obviously things that I would love to receive, but also gifts that many people in your life would probably like to receive as well.

MuffinChanel Holiday Gift Guide 2015

  1. Tea Infuser
    • I’ve been loving loose leaf tea vs. tea bag tea. Better flavor and “more health benefits”… I love all the cute tea infusers too; this one is like a tea wand. ~$7.
  2. iPhone 6s case
    • This phone case has a double barrier, plastic casing with water and glitter in between. Yes, glitter! It’s so pretty and sparkly. ~$13.
  3. Josie Maran – Argan Oil
    • Obviously, Josie is on my list. Especially in the winter time, this argan oil is so hydrating and amazing with multiple uses — a little goes a long way. $96.
  4. Yarn
    • Knitting is such a fun, and relaxing hobby. I love knitting (still working on that blanket!) and these colors are so bright and soft. ~$6.
  5. Starbucks Tumbler – Venti
    • A good tumbler is a must-have for me. It really encourages me to drink water throughout the day and you can get new lids/straws to keep your tumbler fresh and exciting. ~$17.
  6. Creme De Rose – Dior Lip Balm
    • This lip balm is so smooth but not sticky. Its hydrating and luxurious. I like to wear it at night as a “mask” and when I wake up, my lips are soft and revitalized. I love this during the winter time. $28.
  7. NEST Fragrances – Bamboo Reed Diffuser
    • These NEST Fragrances are great for the home. I love how rich the oils are; the scent really permeates throughout the entire house. $42.
  8. FlowerBomb – Viktor & Rolf
    • My favorite fragrance! I think this will be my signature scent forever; it’s very floral and delicious. Get a small size as a gift for your sister or bestie. $50.
  9. Anastasia Beverly Hills – Brow Wiz (Ebony)
    • I love the Brow Wiz. It really helps me shape and define my eyebrows. I love the texture of the pencil and the spoolie at the other end lets me blend everything together for a natural, defined look. ~$23.
  10. Golden Wonder Bath Bomb – LUSH
    • This lovely bath bomb makes your bath into a swirling, shimmering gold sea of warm unicorn magic. I love it. It’s perfect. Yes. $7.
  11. Essie – A List
    • Super pretty red nail polish for the holidays. Nice stocking stuffer or a filler gift for your friends or yourself! $8.50.
  12. Doctor Who – Season 8
    • I love Doctor Who. If you or your friend does too, give this DVD set or even just gift them on iTunes. *hums Doctor Who theme song* ~$55.
