I’m always looking out for gifts that are chic but also a little bit practical. My home/office style is to find everyday normal things but are a little bit more chic and girly. I know most of my friends love the same things and I want to find gifts that are actually useful! These gifts are great for a co-worker or friend who loves to stay organized at her desk or home! My top picks from the Oprah’s Favorite Things inspired me to look on Amazon for more great gift ideas and I found plenty!
THE ULTIMATE LIST OF CHIC GIFTS FOR HER
CHIC AND USEFUL TECH GIFTS
If you don’t have a bluetooth speaker – you need one. I listen to my music, podcasts and audiobooks on my phone but when I’m at home, I prefer to use a bluetooth speaker so I can actually hear it more clearly! If you have an echo dot, you’ll need a bluetooth speaker as the dot is amazing for all the stuff it can do, but the speakers aren’t so great. I’ve mentioned before how much I love the echo dot and how we have one in every room which is also why I love having a little bluetooth speaker like this, I can take it from room to room easily! And for the price, it’s such great quality!

BLUETOOTH SPEAKER – comes in 5 colors ($20!)
If you don’t have one of these little phone grip/holders, let me just tell you that you NEED one! Especially if you take lots of photos as it helps you stabilize your phone or if you look at your phone in bed and have had your phone fall on your face (admit it, it’s happened to you too!) 🙂 You can easily hold your phone in your hand and it won’t move or fall out. It really helps if you have small hands and an iphone plus type phone where it’s a bit too large to fit in your hand.
PHONE HOLDER AND STAND – comes in 8 colors ($4!)
“TREAT YOURSELF” GIFTS FOR THE BUSY WOMEN IN YOUR LIFE
My daughter and I are obsessed with bath bombs. For her, mostly the ones that turn your bath water into crazy colors but for me, I love the ones that can help me relax! These ones have really great essential oils that make your bath smell great and are great for your skin. Also you get 6 of them for $16 which is an amazing price for how great these are!
How pretty is this credit card holder? I love the color and the pearl accents! Also the keychain/lanyard is such a great feature! I love having something that I can just grab and run out the door. Sometimes when I walk to the grocery store, I really don’t want to be carrying a big bag when I know that I’ll have groceries to carry back so this is the perfect solution. The back even has a clear ID slot! It’s pricier than the other items on this list but for under $100, it’s well worth the price.
OK so this is less on the useful side but it’s so pretty that I had to share! It’s something that I wouldn’t buy for myself but if I got it as a gift, I would love it! I love having pretty items to keep on my vanity and this is definitely something that I would keep out. It’s under $10 so it’s a great stocking stuffer or secret santa gift!
I have this on here because I want one of the lighted vanity mirrors so bad! It’s so pretty and would be so useful when putting on makeup or plucking my eyebrows (or examining all the wrinkles on my face LOL)
PRETTY HOME ORGANIZATION GIFTS
I love acrylic makeup organizers. My bathroom is full of them but I don’t have one of these that can organize your brushes and lipsticks on the top and keep everything else organized on the bottom. It’s so smart to have it all together! It comes in 3 colors but I’m loving the pink tint so much!
From someone who owns a lot of makeup, a train case is a lifesaver to keep all my daily essentials and more organized. Also use it for your jewelry, hair accessories and so much more! This one is just so pretty, I love the rose gold.
I’ve mentioned this acrylic stapler and tape dispenser many times before but it’s because I love them so much! They keep my desk looking so chic. I can’t help but love cute desk accessories when most of the time they are so boring!
GIFTS FOR YOUR HOSTESS
If you are heading to a friend’s house for a party or for the holidays, don’t go empty handed! These gifts are going to be a great gift for anyone that loves having friends over! I adore these hot cocoa mugs. I mean, how cute right? I already bought these for a friend who always has me and my daughter over for hot chocolate, it’s the perfect gift!
Even though pineapples are a bit more summery, these copper tumblers are just so chic that they can be out year round. Also if you didn’t know, in the Chinese tradition we use pineapples to celebrate Chinese New Year as they represent wealth and luck which are always welcome in my house!
