Special Gifts For Her
This may not come as a huge surprise to you, but Team Busbee loves to shop! All year long we find ourselves researching, purchasing, and trying things out…it’s just the nature of the business. This year we’ve decided to compile a list of the gifts we’re loving and putting on our own wish lists, as well as the things we’re buying for others. We’re talking everything from jewelry to appliances. If you’re looking for unique and special gift ideas, here is what Team Busbee is buying this year!
Be sure to check out all of our curated gift guides for Her, Him, Teens (teen gifts can be TOUGH!) and just about everyone on your shopping list, here.
If you’ve been a subscriber for a while, you might recognize this favorite…Aqua Cashmere sweaters! These sweaters top Erin’s gift list year after year. They are high-quality, luxe cashmere, not too heavy, and have the coolest design details. For example, the cashmere sweater has a slight puff shoulder and elongated ribbed cuffs with a slight blouson sleeve. The subtle modern details are just a little “extra”. These sweaters also layer beautifully under coats and jackets. The best part? They are almost always on sale! You really can’t beat the quality and price point. And there’s something for everyone…v-neck, crew neck, button front, cutouts, solids, patterns, etc.! Erin owns and has gifted several. Here are a few of her standout favorites…

My mom has this YSL bag, and I borrowed it for a wedding and decided that I now need one for myself…it’s the perfect size for the essentials, super versatile, and I’ll be able to use it forever! I lived in my Ugg boots growing up so I’m very happy to see that these little minis are super trendy right now. They’re selling out/sold out everywhere, so they’ll be tough to get your hands on! Lastly, my bar tools have unfortunately lost their luster, so it’s time for a new set. I love the matte black, but the best part is that these are dishwasher-safe!

I love the smell of this moisturizer and how soft it makes my face feel. My skin is super dry! I use it at night over all of my serums to seal everything in. I’m all about looking edgy and chic. I have these retro converse high tops on my list and can’t wait to wear them with my new tulle skirt! Beautiful candles are always a great gift to give and this one is extra special for the holidays.

This Ember mug is my #1 go-to gift. I own 4 of them and rarely show up to a Busbee zoom meeting without one in my hand! I also love this pendant necklace. I wear mine often and love it so much (I gave 2 as gifts last year). It’s so substantial and gorgeous! You can wear it long (35″) or double-up the chain (17.5″).

I scream… you scream… we all scream for ice cream! With the Ninja Creami, you have the ability to create your own ice creams, gelatos, and sorbets with just the simple click of a button. Everything is completely customizable, allowing for even keto, low-sugar, and dairy-free options to be transformed into delicious, creamy, indulgent desserts. Trust me… you would never know those dairy-free versions don’t contain an ounce of dairy. Whether you’re an expert in the kitchen or a total novice, this nifty device does all the heavy lifting for you. SO this holiday… you can officially have your ice cream and eat it too. (Guilt-free!) When it comes to giving gifts, I like to look for items that combine luxury with practicality. You can never go wrong with a pair of buttery soft, super comfortable pajamas… and Nordstrom’s Moonlight pajamas are my go-to FAVE! A great gift to give AND don’t forget to grab an extra pair for yourself!
Rachel – Community Manager
Slippers top the list as one of the best gifts I have received. Between being a mom and working from home, they are an everyday essential in my book. I love this pair in particular because they’re comfortable, stylish, and water-resistant! What more could you ask for? It’s truly one of those gifts that (if you know the right size) will be used and appreciated daily for many years to come. Also, I love finding gifts that are more than just an item to give, but also an experience to enjoy. For the coffee lover in your life…this is the perfect gift and experience! The unique and fresh coffee blends from Bean Box are some of the best I’ve tasted, and it’s always fun to try out new kinds. From their Coffee Advent Calendar to a Coffee and Chocolate Sampler, to a monthly subscription…you can’t go wrong here!

For the jewelry lover, Monica Vinader is one of my favorite brands. This ID necklace is so pretty and can be personalized with an initial or short message. It would make a great gift! All MV jewelry is also 30% off right now (score…everything!) I’ve heard this robe is amazing and buttery soft. It’s constantly coming in and out of stock but is currently in stock and on my wish list! I really like that it’s lightweight. I’ve had my eye on the Ooni Pizza Ovens for a couple of years now…this latest version is smaller than the original (makes 12′ pizzas) so everyone can make their own customized pizza! It heats up to over 900 degrees and can cook a full pizza in 60 seconds.

I love lifting weights and using kettlebells, but all of the equipment can start to take up a lot of space. This grip turns your dumbbell into a kettlebell, so you can double up on moves easily! On a run, there’s nothing more annoying to me than constantly needing to push up my sunglasses. These are great because they have good grip and are polarized. Plus, the juicy colors will inspire the runner in your life to get outside more often. These bath bombs will help the exercise-lover unwind and ease their sore muscles. They’ll be touched by your thoughtful and insightful gift!

How can anyone resist the desire to take this beauty out of her purse at dinner to reapply her lipstick? I already have one of these collectible cases, but I’m dying for a backup! I sprayed a little bit of this fragrance on my arm as a tester and have not been able to stop thinking about it since. I can’t think of a better time than the holidays than to splurge on a skincare gift. This serum from La Prairie has been on my wish list since it came out this fall.
