2018 Christmas Gift Guide: Elevated Basics

2018 Christmas Gift Guide: Elevated Basics

Christmas is nearly here, and if you’re like me….you’re not even close to being finished with shopping for gifts. Some people are harder to shop for than others, but I always want to get people either sentimental gifts or practical things they can use on a regular basis. I decided to gather a list of elevated basics. Because everyone loves/needs a good basic right? Whether you’re shopping for your best friend, sister, or mom…check out my list of gifts that she will love!

  1. Superga 2750 COTU Classic Sneaker - These are the perfect white sneakers! They go with everything and are super comfortable.

  2. Lawless Beauty Soft Matte Liquid Lipstick - This liquid lipstick is a must! It’s high-pigmented, ultra-nourishing, & all natural. The ‘George’ color is my fave.

  3. Wine Decanter - A decanter is a great gift for any wino.

  4. Self Tanning Drops - These drops are AMAZING. Add them to your daily moisturizer for a sunkissed glow. It’s also formulated without parabens & sulfates, so you can feel good about putting it on your skin.

  5. Rahua Body Shower Gel - This plant-derived shower gel smells amazing with essential oils & extracts lavender, eucalyptus, vanilla, and palo santo.

  6. Vans High Tops - Vans will never go out of style. This black and white color palette will go with everything!

  7. White Crop Tee - Everyone could use a good white cropped tee. It’s a definite staple in every girls wardrobe.

  8. Black Zip Up Jumpsuit - I love jumpsuits, and this black one is adorable and less than $100.

  9. Eyeshadow Palette - A good eyeshadow palette is an ideal gift for any girl. This Kevyn Aucoin palette redefines the neutral look with a combination of matte, satin, & chrome finishes.

  10. Lapis Facial Oil - Face oil is the perfect gift for any beauty or skincare loving person in your life! This particular oil is luxurious & also works well with oily or blemish-prone skin.

  11. Black Booties - Every girl needs a good pair of black leather booties in her wardrobe. This pair by Tony Bianco is gorgeous!

  12. Wine Glasses - One thing about wine glasses is that they break easily, so people usually need more of them! I’m obsessed with the unique shape of these.

  13. Josie Maran Body Butter - Nice lotion or body butter is a no-fail gift if you’re unsure of what to get someone! I love everything by Josie Maran because it smells amazing and is so good for your skin.

  14. CBD Body Lotion - If you’re new to the CBD craze, this is a great product to try out or gift to someone else. It has a long-lasting cooling effect and offers immediate relief to skin issues or body aches.

  15. Levi’s - It can be tricky to buy jeans for people, but you really can’t go wrong with a good pair of Levi’s.

I hope you enjoyed this Christmas gift guide! I know shopping for people can be hard, but at the end of the day it’s the thought that counts, so don’t sweat it too much. After all, the holiday season is about so much more than presents - I still can’t help but love the gift giving aspect of Christmas though! There’s something about finding the perfect gift for someone that I love that brings me so much happiness. Gift giving is definitely one of my love languages. Happy shopping and have a merry Christmas!
