Gift Guide For a Girl's Best Friend

Happy almost Christmas! I rounded up a few gifts perfect for your best friend! The one who held your hand on the playground, held back your hair when you stayed out too late and held your bouquet on your wedding day. The friend who you can go months without talking to because you're both busy being a #girlboss, but that doesn't stop you from picking things up right where they left off. For that special ride or die in your life, these pretty gifts are for her.

The "Any Excuse for a Gift" Guide

Who agrees that being on the receiving end of a gift can be stressful? Especially when you’re the type of person that doesn’t like surprises, like myself. You end up doing all the heavy lifting, curating the perfect wish list to hand off to that special someone, so it must be exactly what you want. I mean, let’s face it - shopping for that meaningful piece that you force your significant other to buy you is hard work!

And with Summer around the corner, it’s Anniversary season for a lot of us! Plus, birthdays and job promotions and all of the other amazing celebrations that warrant gifts. So if you’re on the hunt, I’ve rounded up a few perfect gifts to take some of the stress off of you - just click on the item to shop!

Herriott Grace

Like most kids in middle school, I had to take those standardized tests and without fail, my reference skills were always off the chart. I credit my father for this small victory due to the fact that his answer to everything when I was a kid was “Look it Up.”

Before joining the postal service, he sold encyclopedias, so our beautiful leather-bound books were always on display. I remember running my fingers over the spines as I looked for the letter that associated with the subject on my mind. I would get lost flipping from book to book and my obsession with digesting information grew with the invention of Google. 

On any given day, I spend hours researching one thing that leads me to investigating something else and along the way, I find really cool stuff. Now for most of you, you would Pin It, but I just can’t seem to remember the point of Pinterest. I know it’s bad, but until I remember to click this little button, I thought I’d just throw it up on my blog and share with you guys!

My latest discovery is Herriott Grace - a father and daughter duo based in Canada that sells hand carved and hand turned wooden objects. All are one-of-a-kind and made entirely of salvaged, chemical-free wood, ranging in type, age, and origin. They’ve also introduced a select line of exclusive porcelain dishes and other delightful kitchen wares. 

I watched their documentary and it made me cry and now I really want to launch a company with my dad! Here are a few of my favorites products that I intend to buy!
