Working Girl Guide: 5 Must-Have Wish List Gifts
By Lisa Crocco
The holiday season is upon us! With it brings Christmas carols, festive decorations, eggnog, cozy sweaters, old-time holiday movies, and of course delicious food. This time of year also brings perfectly, shiny wrapped presents for your friends and family. Gift giving can be a difficult task, but as Working Girls we know exactly what we want. If you are shopping for your coworkers, boss, editor, or your blogger friend then here are some great gift suggestions:
• Personalized Stationery
Working Girls are constantly writing thank-you notes, letters, lists, etc. so receiving personalized stationery as a gift is perfect and practical! There are a lot of great websites that allow you to customize the stationary to fit your friend’s unique style and personality. Try Minted for fun and relatively inexpensive stationary. About $35 for 15 pieces.
• Kate Spade Cell Phone Case
Our iPhones and Androids are constantly in hand making all those important business phone calls and sending quick texts to meet up with friends. We need a phone case that is just as stylish as we are! Kate Spade has plenty of adorable phone cases to fit every personality. About $40 for one case.
• A Good Book
During the holidays we have some down time to read a good book. Why not pick out one of your favorite reads or a book on career and lifestyle and give it to that Working Girl in your life. A great suggestion would be “20-Something, 20-Everything: A Quarter-life Woman’s Guide to Balance and Direction”. This way your friend can learn practical advice and exercises to start the new year off fresh! About $12 from Amazon.
• Michael Kors Watch
Time is something every Working Girl needs, but never has enough of. Helping her manage her time more efficiently with a beautiful Michael Kors wrist watch is a must! Watches are a favorite accessory to pair with a blazers and cardigans during the season. With rose gold or silver or color bands with diamonds or designs, the possibilities are endless! About $250 depending on style.
• Yankee Candles
After a long, tiring day spent at work and in meetings, the best thing to do is to come home and curl up on the couch with a blanket, a movie, and a heavenly scented candle. You can never go wrong with giving someone candles as a gift. Winter holiday scents tend to be a crowd favorite and Yankee Candle sure does have options for you to choose from. Pair it with a cute holiday holder and you are good to go! About $28 for a large jar candle.
