We’re just a few weeks out from Christmas, and in the crunch for wrapping up the holiday shopping lists! If you’re feeling stuck on gift ideas, I’ve put together a week of ideas to help you get inspired! Today we’re shopping for your lady friends – women are notoriously bad at “treat yo self” or splurging on something fancy or non-utilitarian. Here are some great ideas for anyone struggling for gift ideas!

I’ll caution my first suggestion by saying know your lady – if she’ll get offended or think you’re making a fat joke, steer clear of this. But something many of my lady friends (and I) appreciate is a cute, comfy yoga mat. A lot of them tend to be one or the other – scratchy and thin with a cute design, or thick and luxe but very plain. I recently treated myself to a (heavily discounted) Kess yoga mat from Amazon, and it’s not only cute, it’s so thick, and perfect for any girl who suffers through workouts on a thin mat.

McClary Brothers Drinking Vinegar might seem like another strange suggestion, but I’ve really been enjoying these lately. They taste good – way better than drinking straight Apple Cider Vinegar (one of those old wives tales that’s supposed to have great health benefits) They’re also really great mixers for cocktails, or just for sipping!

I don’t know any girl who doesn’t secretly want a Spirit Football Jersey, but they’re so expensive, it’s hard to justify (for me anyway.) Pick one with an inspirational saying, her favorite sport, or her hometown. They’re super comfy for lounging around the house, so she’ll really enjoy cozying up for lazy and cold winter days.

Adult coloring books are really en vogue right now, and rightfully so. My grandma got me some at Thanksgiving to help with my stress and anxiety, and it’s a great distraction when I need to get outside of my own head. Not only is it relaxing, it’s really fun!

And finally, one that’s on my personal list – the Blogilates fit planner. Not only is it super beautiful, I love the built in workout planners and food trackers, along with the inspirational tips. Cassey is one of my favorite fitness pros, and she’s done a lot of great things for making fitness accessible and affordable.
