Gift Guide for Her

Hey Guys! I know buying for the women in your life can be intimidating. Try to be thoughtful, think of what will make her smile.

1) L.L. Bean Sweater

I love a fair isle sweater, Bean sweaters are a classic and make a perfect addition to anyone’s wardrobe.

2) Vineyard Vines PJs

Give this gift to the lady in your life on Christmas Eve so she can wear them Christmas morning. PJs are the perfect cozy gift for your mom, sister or girlfriend. I got this Black watch flannel set and I am obsessed!

3) Riley Sheehey Phone case

If you’re not following her on Instagram you should be! Riley is an incredibly talented artist, in addition to her amazing art work on Etsy, her beautiful prints come to life on home goods and tech accessories. I recently purchased one of her phone cases, get the protective version, it’s well worth it!

4) Gus and Ruby Candle

Nothing makes me feel at home quite like my favorite candles. I discovered Gus and Ruby at a party earlier this year. I walked in and fell in love! The first thing I asked the host was what candle she was biting, and it is now my favorite candle Gus and Ruby Salt Air. They have tons of different scent for every girl in your life!

5) Spa Day

The holidays can be stressful, especially if you’re cooking and hosting! Every girl has her little pick me up. A place she loves to get her nails done, that facial she only treats herself to on a special occasion, etc. get her a gift certificate to her favorite place for a mini (or big) spa day. If you want to treat both of you to some relaxation get a gift certificate for a couples massage!

Holiday Pick Me Up

This week to kick off the holiday season I visited GLOW Salon in Watertown to try their brand new Red Light Therapy service. They are one of the only places around that offer a full body RLT service. I had never tried RLT and was super excited to check it out. RLT is a proven collagen stimulator and can help with acne, fine lines, cellulite, and overall healing of the skin. It also helps with muscle recovery, so if your planning to go hard at the gym this week to burn off all that turkey make yourself an appointment! When I got the the salon I was greeted by GLOW owner Jenna, she was super informative and friendly. The Red Light Therapy machine is super easy to use but Jenna took me through the whole thing to make sure I was comfortable operating it. The service is only 12 minutes so it’s the perfect little pick me up. The coolest part in my opinion was the vibrating plate you stood on. It has 4 different levels and the vibration actually burns calories! I only went up to level 2 but will definitely go higher next time. It felt warm and refreshing which is perfect as we head into the colder months! GLOW also offers a range of other services that I definitely would recommend checking out, the holidays can be stressful so I’m a big fan of self care this time of year!

Thank you so much to GLOW for having me, be sure to follow them on Instagram!
