A Gift Guide from The Best Rec.’s of 2017 ⭐️

Apple Watch Series 3

 

Apple Watch  series 3. It is seriously one of my favorite purchases in 2017. It has come in handy (get it) wether I am: asking Siri to remind me to call Wil at 3 p.m. and she’ll send me a friendly buzz then or if I don’t want my phone on me at work and am still able to see my mom’s text on my wrist. It has automatic replies like “Thank you!” , “Yeah!”, or “I’ll call you later” that you’re easily able to press on your wrist and send instead of getting out your phone, appearing like you’re not listening to the person in front of you and typing out a response. It’s water resistant (I’ve showered with it on multiple times) and reminds you to breathe with their meditating app. on it periodically throughout the day where it leads you through an easy meditation that can last anywhere from a minute to a half hour. This silly watch has improved my life for the better and is the ultimate gift for a special person in your life.

SoulCycle Package

 Soulcycle is a new concept to me as of last year and I am officially hooked. It is an experience like no other if you have someone in your life that is into a high energy, reflective, and rhythmic workout. I highly recommend looking into them if you’ve never tried with your pal for a holiday get together or calorie burning session pre or post indulging! If your guy or girl already has a package, buy them some more sessions! Their app. is so easy to download and classes are a breeze to buy!

DealRay

This is a picture of me in Tokyo; a trip I was able to take mid wedding planning because of DealRay  an app. and subscription service that alerts you about the cheapest trips from your major city airport! They only alert you about roundtrip cheap costs and they are normally all non-stop! We flew to Beijing for under $500.00 round trip direct flight from Chicago. This is a great service to either gift your boo or yourself to take them on the trip of their dreams. There are some awesome deals going on right now, so if you have prospects to travel with someone special in your future I recommend subscribing to their e-mail service for free or their texts for $10.00 a month that will alert you about the best trips!

 

 

 

 

FabFitFun

FabFitFun is a partnership I have, meaning, if you use my link I may get perks from their company. If you use the code SANTABABY you will get $10.00 off your purchase and that I do not receive any benefit from! Having that said, I became an affiliate with them for a VERY good reason, I am OBSESSED with their company and all of their products. They have an awesome mission and all of the products they send are from legitimately good companies that are giving back in the world. I have been receiving their monthly packages for over a year now and my husband just gifted me and I actually screamed because I was so excited. Their yearly package is, in my opinion the best, and for only $176.00 not only are you giving your girl a year full of presents that will remind her you’re the best around but she’ll also be guaranteed obsessed with them, and you, for 365 days AT LEAST. I freaking love them and if you want to know how much, read my last post, FabFitFun Reviewed

Teami Detox 

I know, I know, I’ve wrote about Teami a lot. Hear me out, they have and continue to help me so much with my health that I think anyone in your life whether they’re trying to lose weight, be healthier, or may benefit from their detox in anyway needs to have this! Read: Teami…Friend or Foe for my whole experience! Still obsessed and that says something. Click here to buy!

HelloFresh

HelloFresh is a kick I tried for 6 months this year and it not only gave me confidence in the kitchen but made me look like a serious boss to my husband! I am not one that is comfortable in the kitchen literally even trying to make eggs but their simple meal plans and affordable price made me actually like cooking! And eating, what I made, in fact! I seriously enjoyed every single thing I made not to mention made some BOMB instastories. Book a class on Dabble in your city to try a fun fencing class like this one or something new! I took this with my friend Alli (arguably against her will) and we not only worked up a sweat through a seemingly dangerous but hilarious and very safe activity but we both decided we wouldn’t be doing this professionally anytime soon (hey, you never know until you try). We have also taken a calligraphy class that was a blast and are planning for more in the future, but it would be a seriously fun present to gift someone you want to spend more time with and to try something fun and new together!

Ritual Vitamins

Ritual Vitamins are a sustainable new vitamin to the market that have reinvigorated the supplement game. They are vitamins that have been mindfully created by a woman who was sick of not knowing exactly what she was buying with the other daily vitamins on the market and have created these with only the things we are proven to need. They have mens and women’s, where it is only $30.00 a month for a small but crucial step in maintaining your health. I have been taking them for a year now and I love them. I am someone with a slightly more delicate immune system and this year I have been noticeably less sick, more active, and healthier than I have been before.

LeTote

Having tried StitchFix before I was not sure what to expect with LeTote. They are a clothing rental service meaning, much like Rent the Runway, they send you clothes that are specific to your measurement and style that have been previously worn with the caveat of if you like what you were sent, you can keep and buy for a substantially cheaper price. If you don’t buy it however, you get to wear the clothes for a solid month (like seriously, wear it!) and send it back! I am obsessed with LeTote and it makes being trendy in ever changing season styles affordable and ADORABLE (see what I did there). Check them out for yourself if you’re in need of some winter clothes or gift them to your bestie to try for free for a month or two! 1. Everyone loves mail. 2. Everyone loves looking hot. It’s a win win!

Herschel Backpack 

Having thought previously that Herschel Backpacks were only for boys, I decided to buy one of my own after shoving literally every toiletry that I had in my husbands during our honeymoon. They have some seriously cute styles and are perfect for the gal or guy in your life. They can hold my entire world whether it be their separate compartment for my laptop or multiple curling irons, a full can of hairspray, any of my 2,000 facial products or 30 binders that I carry around with me for no reason.

Enso Rings

 

Enso Rings are a product that are heavily marketed on Instagram and Facebook that I decided would be a good thing to have to wear instead of my rings during work and my workouts. If you don’t have a job that allows you to wear jewelry for risk of damaging it or don’t want to get your ring dirty during your sweaty workout or caught on things while sleeping for that matter, Enso is for you. I LOVE my silicon band and it allows me to wash my face, clean my house or my patient freely without fear of getting it dirty or chipping a stone. They’re cheap and a great gift for your hubby or wife, or friend who you think would love their styles!

Bling Brush

 

The Bling Brush from Baublerella may just be my most beloved present to myself this year. It’s one of the most essential things I have in my purse and I am constantly using it to clean my ring. It makes me so sad to look down and have cloudy ring or piece of jewelry then have to privately whisper to it after a glass of wine “I promise I’ll take better care of you”. This little guy is $18.00 and completely safe for your gems. I love it, I clean all of my friends rings with it, it’s a must have for yourself or the best little stocking stuffer around.

 

Thanks for reading and listening to my completely biased insight as to what I think you should get your loved ones this year; I hope this helps you find a great gift for them or yourself! Also, thank you to every person that submitted one of these suggestions, they have seriously changed my life for the better.

XOXOXO,

Andi
