gifts for women in your life
Once again it’s that time of year where we need to start thinking about our holiday shopping. I always start out with a list of all the people we’re buying for, and then when I’m out shopping I keep an eye out for things that they would like. Today I’m talking about great gifts for the women in your life. As a woman, I know what I’ll be putting on my wish list and what gifts I’d like to give to all the amazing women in my life as well.

Fashion accessories women will love

Vince Camuto Tina SatchelYou really can’t go wrong buying fashion accessories like handbags, jewellery or watches for the women in your life. I like to change my handbag with what’s in style for the season, and because it’s something you use everyday they get worn out too.

Satchel bags are popular because they have a flat bottom which makes them sturdy and they stay standing when put down. They’re also large enough to fit everything you’ll need for a busy day out, and some are even large enough to fit your laptop. This Vince Camuto Tina Satchel Bag is made of leather and has stylish gold accents. I like to carry my satchel bag with the low handles, but you have the option of a detachable shoulder strap if you prefer. I love that this gorgeous bag has a zipper top to keep your everyday necessities safe.

Soprano Handbags AlizaAnother popular handbag trend is the mini backpack. They’re versatile, easy to carry, allow you more freedom with your arms and are super cute. This Soprano Handbags Aliza Leather Mini Backpack is a beautiful neutral light grey colour and can easily be carried for everyday use or for a night out on the town. It has adjustable straps, a zip closure, a magnetic flap and gold hardware to add a classic design element. The colour of this bag is what stands out to me, it’s a clean and crisp alternative to the usual black.

Bulova Analog Dress WatchSince we’re talking fashion accessories, I have to mention watches. We all have cell phones to give us the time, but a beautiful watch on your wrist can really complete your look. I’m so in love with rose gold right now, and this Bulova Women’s Analog Dress Watch With Swarovski Crystal Bezel is stunning. It’s made of stainless steel with a rose gold finish and has 121 Swarovski crystals set in the crown. The luminous hands mean you’ll be able to see the time in low light and it also has the day, date and 24 hour sub-dials. I’m sure any woman would love to unwrap this timeless beauty this holiday season.

Fitness trackers

FitBit AltaFitness trackers are the perfect way to track your fitness, and Fitbit has a great variety of fitness trackers to meet your needs. I love that they’re customizable to each individual. You can have them in the style of a sport watch, a bangle, a leather band or a necklace, and can easily go from the gym, to work or an evening out.

I love the slim sleek design of the Fitbit Alta Fitness Tracker, and it’s available in a variety of band colours. This tracker will help you stick to your health and fitness goals by giving you reminders to move, and the Fitbit Dashboard app allows you to record your workouts, log food, see your progress and set new goals. Sleeping is a huge part of staying healthy and the Fitbit Alta will monitor your sleep patterns and has an alarm to wake you.

You can also dress up your Fitbit Alta with this simple and elegant Fitbit Alta Leather Band. It’s available in a few colours and has an adjustable design to ensure you get the perfect fit. Using this leather band will allow you to easily coordinate your fitness tracker to your work or evening outfit making it both classy and functional.

FitBit FlyerWireless Fitness HeadphonesIf the woman you’re buying for already owns a FitBit, then you might want to think about gifting them these Fitbit FlyerWireless Fitness Headphones. Wireless headphones are so convenient, especially during a workout, and these ones are sweatproof and will give you 6 hours of playtime off one charge. The interchangeable ear tips, wings or fins allow you to customize your headphones for your personal comfort and the Power Boost delivers amazing sound to power you through the most grueling workout.

Gift fun tech

Tile Style Bluetooth Item TrackerWe’ve become a generation that loves tech, and it makes a great gift. There’s so many cool tech items on the market these days that I’m constantly learning about new ones. I just read up on the Tile Style Bluetooth Item Tracker and I know I could benefit from one. This little tile is a Bluetooth item tracker and will help you find your lost or misplaced items such as your keys, phone or wallet as you’re rushing out the door. It’s easy to use through the Tile app or if it’s your phone that’s lost, simply press the tile and listen for the ring of your lost item.

Our cell phones get so much use these days that it’s always nice to have a trendy phone case. Of course if you’re quite hard on your phone and it gets a lot of use, and maybe dropped a time or two, you probably want a strong case like an OtterBox. It can get quite costly replacing or repairing your phone on the regular.

kate spade New York Hard Shell Case iPhone7/8In my daily life it’s not required of me to be attached to my phone constantly, which means I like to think of my phone case as both functional and a cute accessory. Kate Spade makes some classy and fun cases, and this lightweight ombre kate spade New York iPhone 7/8 Fitted Hard Shell Case just speaks to me. It’s made of hard plastic and has a shock-resistant bumper to absorb the impact from any drops or falls.

Finding the perfect gift for the women in your life can be tricky, but with a few hints on what’s in style and popular right now, hopefully it will help make finding the right gift a little easier this holiday season.
