2020 Gift Guide: for your sister or bestie

Do you have a bestie or a sister in your life you're not quite sure how to shop for? I've got you mama!

ALL of these gift guide posts are packed with items I either use and love, have purchased or have on the list for my own people (my husband even helped me create the men's list!). Enjoy!

1) The Happy Ever After Playlist https://amzn.to/3jR42b2

This book, you guys. I feel like books are GREAT bestie/sister books, especially one as funny, and also romantic, as this one (I loved her first one just as much).

2) Beach Read https://amzn.to/3oRGJkS

Can you tell I love a good rom-com? I love reading deeper books, too, I promise (Where the Crawdad Sings and Little Fires Everywhere were two of my favorites, this year) but I read so much nonfiction, I love a good light fiction book. This was one of my FAVORITES this year and I know your sister or bestie will love it, too.

3) The softest leggings ever https://amzn.to/35Sycp6

Allow me to introduce you to the leggings you (or your sister) will NEVER want to take off. Like, ever. Promise.

4) Party in your Plants cookbook https://amzn.to/3mP1kVf

This was my favorite new cookbook of 2020. Talia is hilarious (she came on the podcast and it was one of my favorite interviews, ever!) and the recipes are delicious- whether you're a plant lover, or not!

5) The coziest sweatshirt https://amzn.to/3jU1DvW

I'm all about the cozy sweatshirt trend, and I have a feeling your bestie will be, too!

6) Hair Drying Brush https://amzn.to/3864Mql

Have you tried one of these? If not, put two in your cart when you buy this for your sister, ok? They're SO great (I'm all about efficiency when I'm getting ready!).

7) Follain Mask https://amzn.to/3kSJQXD

A little pampering product she might not buy herself? The perfect gift!

8) A new plant baby https://www.thesill.com/

Ok, I'll admit I've never tried The Sill myself- but I've heard GREAT things, and what a great gift that keeps on giving (I mean, as long as you don't think she'll kill it, because that would be sad. But hey- it's the thought that counts!).

9) Tiny Initial necklace https://amzn.to/35XHO25

Pretty and affordable, I think a simple initial necklace is a classic, and a great gift!

10) Marble Wine Cooler https://amzn.to/328uirg

How pretty is this to add some style (and practicality) to a room? Don't forget the wine!

11) The Healthy Mama Meal Planner http://www.healthybalancedmama.com/mealplanner

Ok, I couldn't resist. The Healthy Mama Meal Planner makes a GREAT gift and it's launching on FRIDAY (this year there are THREE color options, so fun!). Be sure you're on my email list (you'll also get my free stress-free eating guide, which we could all use these days, right??) to be the first to find out when it launches!

Which of these items will you add to your list?? Share with me over on Instagram!
