Gift Guide for the #Girlboss

Gift Guide for the #Girlboss

I am so excited to start my Christmas shopping this year that I made it my reward for finishing all my schoolwork. I am happy to say that, as of one hour ago, I am now DONE this semester. I'm feeling pretty proud of myself for meeting all my deadlines early and tomorrow I will officially start my holiday shopping. In that spirit, I've put together a Christmas gift guide to help you shop for the #Girlboss in your life.

As an aspiring #Girlboss myself, my day always starts with caffeine. And let's be honest, who wouldn't love a stylish gold travel mug to compliment their outfit as they walk out the door? 

Around this time last year, I realized that to truly become a grown-up professional I would need a new bag. No more showing up to meetings with a backpack! For Christmas last year I was gifted a beautiful leather bag that fits all my essentials, including my laptop, and matches just about every outfit. 

One thing I learned in grad school is that the business card is not dead. On the advice of my professors I designed and printed cards to match my website and blog branding. Thank goodness I did because a week later Big Important People were asking me for them. Business cards must be in mint condition when you hand them out so a business card holder is essential

You never know when inspiration will strike, and a new notebook always makes a great gift just in time for the new year. 

Ok. Let's be honest. How many of us have actually read #Girlboss? I haven't, but it's on my reading list! From what I hear it's a fantastically motivating and a must-read from young female entrepreneurs. 

More honesty: I need to have a LOT of reminders because I have so many different things going on all the time. I have a day planner, but I also like to have really important deadlines right in front of my face on a wall calendar. This dry-erase one would make a great gift for the multi-tasting girl! 

In this day and age, I can't think of an entrepreneur who wouldn't be grateful to get some backup battery life under the Christmas tree. This power bank can charge two devices at once and has adaptor plugs for your iPhone. 

No matter how hard you work, everyone needs a little pampering once in a while. If you read my October Favourites post, you know how much I'm loving Clarins products right now. This holiday skincare set comes with a limited edition serum, day and night creams, and an eye treatment. 

Finally, for the girl-on-the-go I love this travel care-package. This box set has everything a girl needs to get through a long-haul flight feeling her best!

Have you started your holiday shopping yet? What gift ideas do you recommend?
