Holiday Gift Guide For Her

Is it just me, or does holiday shopping seem to grow more challenging each year? For one, the gift lists just keep getting longer! But it can also be tricky trying to find the right gift for the right person. I'm the over thinker - the one that takes exhaustively long to pick out presents because I so badly want people to love what they're getting. And then I always end up finding stuff that I love and MUST make room for in my closet (and my life!) and, oh look, there I go shopping for myself again. 

 

I know what you're going to say - it's the thought that counts, right? But really, I'd love nothing more than to have one less decision to make. No more internal debates as to whether friends and family will love or hate what I've gifted them!  No more stressing over whether I'm going to get it all done in time. 

 

Gift guides from favorite brands and influencers have seriously saved me in the past when I've been in a pinch. And since bringing LILA to life over 2.5 years ago, some of my best gifts have also come from this store! I shop with you all in mind - so that for all the memorable moments and milestones in life - holidays included, the task of finding the perfect gift is made just a little easier.  Hopefully this year, we can help you find that perfect something for your sister, wife, mother, girlfriend and every other woman in your life. Happy holiday shopping! xo.
