Gal Pal Gift Guide

I’m ringing in the Holidays early this year. This week I plan to ready my Christmas decor so I can put everything up just as soon as I get back from my Thanksgiving trip to Providence, RI. I’m also about to pick out Christmas cards FOR THE FIRST TIME AS AN ADULT. And if you can’t tell, I’m pumped.

I’m trying my hand at shopping for Christmas gifts early this year. I may even hit up some of the Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals. So I’m starting off with my favorite giftees… sisters and gal pals. Let me know what other kinds of gift guides you'd be interested in!

Gal Pal Gift Guide

For the friend that is cooler than you in so many ways. She is effortlessly chic and knows the best restaurants in every neighborhood. She drinks whiskey and loves raw oysters. She is well-read, well-traveled, and well-loved by all. Here’s what I would get her.


This perfume is one of the most strangely beautiful scents I have ever smelled. I won't waste your time trying to describe it, so here's the description on the website. Just trust me; it's good.

"Amongst the transcendental woods of the 1800s, craftsmen from the
Massachusetts Bay Colony built violins & bows in the tiny towns of the Pioneer Valley.
The shops were riddled with old growth mahogany, burled maple shavings, 
amber pine rosin, aged walnut & their unique secret varnishes."


Another scent-based gift (except a bit cheaper), this candle reminds me of an old library. You can actually smell the pencil shavings. 


What's a Ragged gift-guide without something sweet and cozy from Madewell? I'm obsessed with their ex-boyfriend button-downs. The fit is perfect and perfectly over-sized. This print is just too good to pass up.


I can't pass up a nude female form home accessory to save my life. This one just happens to be practical. Remind her of your lady love and support every time she grabs her purse.


Beauty products can be hard to purchase for others, But you can't go wrong with a good mask. This popular Korean skincare brand is a perfect way to ease into a nighttime beauty routine. Plus it comes with a cat headband.
