November Monthly Gems: A Cozy & Relaxing Holiday Gift Guide

holiday gift guide

Can you believe the holiday season is now here?! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and had a lovely time with friends and family. Now that we are done with Thanksgiving, it’s time to focus on my most favorite time of year- Christmas! I really enjoy holiday festivities and looking at pretty Christmas lights and displays. It really is a magical time of the year! I’ve decided to turn my November monthly gems into a holiday gift guide for the special people in your life that deserves something cozy and relaxing. I absolute love feeling nice and cozy during the holidays. These will also make great gifts for yourself! 😉

A pom pom beanie is an absolute must if you want to keep your head warm and look cute at the same time! I really like this beanie because not only can you wear it fitted or slouchy, but it is lightweight, soft, and comfy. You can mix and match it with so many outfits. If you don’t like pom poms, then I recommend this beanie or this one (comes in many colors!) because they’re more simple and casual.

I think cute pajamas are so much fun to wear! Here I’m wearing these adorable Santa pajamas. They are very soft and comfy and comes in many different prints and colors. I also really like this reindeer pajama set too!

After a long day, I love treating myself with a cooling mask sheet for my face. Tony Moly makes some amazing ones that focuses on different skin treatments. One of my favorites is their rice mask because it improves skin tone and radiance. I simply apply the mask on my face after cleansing it. Then I leave it on for 20 minutes as I lay down and relax. After 20 minutes, I remove the mask and gently pat in the remaining product into my skin. This is an excellent stocking stuffer! You can buy a variety pack or select a specific mask such as the aloe one, which is great for moisturizing dry winter skin. It’s like having a facial at home!

Another thing I like to do after a long day is to wind down and relax with some candles. I couldn’t complete my holiday gift guide without candles because I use them all the time. The Entire Confection was kind enough to gift me their peppermint bark and gingerbread house candles- and they smell amazing!

What I really love about their candles is that they are all hand poured in small batches in Philadelphia by sisters Amanda & Emily and are inspired by some of their favorite sugary treats. I love the smell of peppermint and gingerbread houses reminds me of my childhood. Peppermint bark contains hints of dark chocolate, sweet berry, and mint. Gingerbread house contains hints of roasted graham crackers, cinnamon sticks, and vanilla frosting. These candles are made from 100% all natural soy wax, which burns cleaner and longer than regular paraffin wax candles. They are also made of premium grade fragrance oils and have American made wooden wicks, which provides a unique crackling sound when lit. These candles make a fabulous gift! Please don’t forget to support small businesses during the holiday season and check out The Entire Confection!

If you know someone who truly deserves to be pampered and you want to give them the option to pick where they want to go, then a Spafinder gift card is what you’re looking for! This special person can use this gift card at over 25,000 spas and wellness locations. You can choose from different values for the card and there’s also an email version of the gift card where you can enter your own card value and have it directly emailed to your loved one! Talk about convenience! 😉
