The holiday season is among us, and it excites me! It is the time of year that brings together family, food, fun, and friends. Our friends especially our girls are the ones who keep us feeling grounded, focused, loved, and inspired. Our girls and other women in our lives deserve to know how much we care about them. Gift giving is one of the main ways we can show our appreciation. This post is inspired by and sponsored by my crew the Bloggers Like Me Girls. In addition, I vow to make a stronger commitment to being a better friend to my BLM girls and my girlfriends who I love and wish to see more of in 2013 (this is a resolution, of course!)
Without further ado, here are 8 great gift ideas for the ladies in your life! P.S. Some of these gifts are good for many different people in your life.
1. Nail Polish (Remix!)
What woman doesn’t like having pretty nails?
2. Bottle of Wine and Homemade Wine Glass
Pair her favorite wine with a glass that you personalize just for her!
3. Jewelry and/or Jewelry holder ( My favorite!)
Pick out a piece she will love whether it is earrings, a necklace, or bracelet. Then give her a unique way to organize her fabulous jewelry!
4. Homemade Goodies
Put a little love into your gift!!! Make something by hand that gives a warm and fuzzy feeling to the recipient. Mt favorite thing to make our chocolate and vanilla covered pretzels. They are quick to make and always a hit!

5. Scarf (Another favorite)
Keep her nice and warm this season. If she likes to be fashionable, spice up her wardrobe with a new cute scarf!
6. Good Reads
Books!! Keep her knowledgeable and empowered with a book like Beautylicious:The Black Girls Guide to the Fabulous Life or Ebony Editor & Cheif Amy Dubois Barnett’s, Get Yours!: How to Have Everything You Ever Dreamed Of . Another great book list to check out is 6 Books to Raise Your Cultural Consciousness. Also, consider getting a subscription to her favorite magazine such as: O, Essence, Glamour…whatever piques her interest!
7. Favorite Movies or TV Shows
Pick up some sister girl classics such as Waiting to Exhale or Love Jones, or throw in something newer like For Colored Girls, Grey’s Anatomy, or Scandal Season One.
8. Hair Products
Is she growing long healthy hair or has she recently went natural? Then embrace this and order or purchase her favorite products.
