It’s always been tough for me to find gifts for friends and loved ones. Most of the times, I struggle to find the slightest inclination of what those closest to may want (especially my momma); however, as I’ve gotten older, gift giving has evolved into more than just “finding the perfect surprise” but it’s allowed me to effectively express my thoughts and feelings in ways unimaginable.
‘Tis the season for stuffing stockings, baking cookies, decorating gingerbread houses, sipping peppermint tea and trimming the Christmas tree… Yet, there’s no greater love than being able to show your all-time faves how much you truly care. In this edition of Holiday Shopping 2017, I’ve compiled a few gift ideas for the twenty-something fashionista in your life. She may be obsessed with fashion and style, she may be on a lifestyle journey or she may even be on a quest for self-realization: it’s all covered here!
So, keep reading to check out a few of my favorite holiday picks!
