With the holidays fast approaching, if you find yourself in a pinch on what to get your bestie or if you’re wanting to buy yourself a gift, these female-owned companies have some amazing products suited for all your needs!

Night Worms

If you have a horror/thriller bookworm in your life (or you may be one yourself!) then purchasing a monthly subscription would make the perfect gift. Every month has a theme and you’ll usually find two books and some themed goodies (be it teas, stickers, or bookmarks).

Beauty Bakerie

This cruelty-free vegan cosmetic brand not only has amazing products, but they seriously have the cutest packaging I’ve ever seen. I’m a big fan of their eyeshadow palettes (one of my personal favourites being The Proof is in The Pudding). They’ll soon be launching a skincare line and I can’t wait to try it out.

DEHV Candle Co.

These candles aren’t your run-of-the-mill scented candles, these candles offer you an experience, they take you on an adventure. They’re made from non-GMO soy wax and come in biodegradable packaging, so not only are these candles good for your senses but also for Mother Earth. Some of my personal fave scents from them are: Soiree, Cocoon, and Wander.


If you or a friend find yourselves suffering from menstrual cramps, this company offers you some of the best natural relief there is. You can check out my review of the product here, but to give you a quick lowdown of how these menstrual patches work and how effective they are: one set of patches give you 24 hours of relief which is basically what 8 painkillers did in the same amount of time for me. It’s the perfect gift for yourself or your bestie.

The Sill

If you have a friend (or you love plants) but have issues keeping them alive, then this site is perfect for you! They have the cutest fuss-free houseplants that help brighten any office space or home.


3 Easy & Awesome Last Minute Gifts!


There are two kinds of people when it comes to the holidays, those who have all their holiday shopping done before December hits, and those who are still scrambling around last minute looking for the perfect gift. I’m a combination of both those people, because for the friends and family members that I don’t have trouble buying gifts for, I usually get those early on, but for those people that I don’t know what to get, I end up procrastinating in hopes that I’ll be illuminated with an amazing idea (usually it comes, most often times, it doesn’t). So, if like me, you’re sitting there three days before Christmas panicking on what to get that certain someone that’s hard to shop for, then have no fear! I’ve compiled five ideas that will be sure to make your shopping experience less stressful!


Does your friend or family member love a certain TV show or book series very much? Then there lies your answer for the perfect gift! If your bestie can’t get enough of those trouble-making rascals on Stranger Things, then how about getting her a Stranger Things mug or T-Shirt? Is your dad a big fan of Game of Thrones? Then how about getting him a beer mug in theme with the show? The awesome thing about fandoms is that if the person you know is a huge fan, they’re bound to love anything you get them that is related to it, no matter how expensive or cheap it may be!

Monthly Subscriptions

Don’t know what to give someone? Well, there are so many monthly subscriptions out there for all interests! There’s a monthly subscription box for any interest and hobby! With so many boxes to choose from, you’re bound to find one that’s perfect for the person you’re wishing to purchase a gift for, and the amazing thing is that this gift will be year-round! Here’s a small selection of some amazing boxes out there!

If the person you’re trying to get a gift for is the sort of person who has everything, then how about donating an x amount of money to one of their favourite charities? After all, for the person who has it all, they may appreciate your token of generosity on their behalf! Find out what charities or causes your friend or relative is most passionate about and donate to that. Below are some of my favourite charities:

Oceana: http://oceana.org/ (a charity that focuses on keeping the oceans clean & helping preserve marine life)

American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Program: https://afsp.org/ (a charity that helps those with mental illness/suicidal tendencies)

Write Girl: http://www.writegirl.org/ (a charity that helps empower teen girls in Los Angeles in their writing endeavors

I hope this short list was helpful in any way to jump-start some brainstorming ideas for gifts! Let me know what you think!
