Can you believe another Holiday season is here already? If you are anything like I usually am, I always struggle with what to buy my clients and now my Virtual Assistants this year. However, this year, I have plenty of ideas which is a big change! I thought it would be great to list some below. I hope you enjoy this week’s vlog on some of my favorite items for girls, geeks & goddesses!!
Great Girl Gifts
Ideas for great gifts that *any* girl would love to have.
Birchbox – Did you know that this fabulous service offers gifting in increments of 3, 6, or 12!
Kate Spade Journal – This gorgeous journal is sure to spark anyone’s creativity!!
Kate Spade Sparkler Gia in Multi – Gorgeous sparkle clutch!
Cheryl & Co. Cookies – These are hands down my favorite cookies to send to anyone you want to say Thank You to. I highly recommend the sugar cookies with icing but all are a good choice! For a healthier option, go with Edible Arrangements. I have sent several of these to family and clients and all have loved it!
Alex & Isabelle Hair Bands – I received this in my Birchbox one month and have been using it every day since then! They also have headbands now!
Goddess Gifts that Give Back
Give the gift that keeps on giving…
Kiva – Last year, I sent my clients gift certificates for Kiva Loans. This is truly the gift that continues giving again and again and again.
Half United – They are a clothing company fighting global hunger. I was able to hang out with them when I traveled to the Carolinas recently. They are incredible people with an awesome cause!
TOMS – Glasses One-for-One. Purchase a pair of sunglasses as a gift and give someone the gift of proper eye wear! TOMS is known for their one-for-one shoe concept and they have now moved into eye wear as well.
Fair Trade Gifts – SERRV – Seriously, I could gander through these pages for hours! You can find something for everyone here! They help crafters in poverty sell their items. To get the official “who they are”, click here. This basket is how I found the site!
Peacekeeper Cause-Medics – is the first cosmetic line to give donations to human rights issues for women who live in poverty or servitude.
Geek Girl Gifts
Every geek girl deserves special gifts for the holidays. *ahem*
Alesya Bags – The Perfect Laptop bag for your Geek Girl and actually #1 on my wishlist! I saw this bag in person at Spark & Hustle Grand Finale and let me tell you, it is gorgeous, practical and a MUST HAVE! Watch the cool video here on how you can use your Alesya Bag (which coincidentally is pronounced JUST like my name!).
Chalkboard Speech Bubble – Ok, I will admit that most of these items are things I want! This one especially!! It just looks fun.
iTap Gloves for Winter – No more taking off your gloves to check your messages on your iPhone. These handy gloves allow you to use your iPhone while keeping your hands toasty warm!
Glif – While we are on iPhones, check out this groovy attachment for your tripod and iPhone! Even The Oona looks pretty freaking cool but delivery is 4-6 weeks at the moment…
Geek Jewelry – Every geek needs her badge of honor. Here are a few choices from Etsy. Silver Geek Necklace, Geek Ring, and Geek Glasses Necklace. Or even a Geek Heart for your office (or wedding cake topper??).
