Gift Guide: Ryanne’s Favorite Things

This holiday season I have been thinking about how incredibly blessed I am for this business. It has allowed me to make a job of something I LOVE shopping, finding deals, speaking my truth and working with amazing businesses. I’m the type of person that loves a splurge and a save and today I’m sharing some of my favorite things, some are splurge worthy and some are less expensive than you would think!

The best way to celebrate my favorite things is to go Oprah style and GIVE THEM AWAY!! Starting today, December 1st 2020 I will be giving away one item from this list each day for 12 days.

I’m sure you are thinking well Ryanne how the heck do I win?! Head over to my Instagram page and each day I will announce the prize in my stories.

On that day you will need to be following my IG then like the post of the day, comment and tag a friend. You must be 18 years of age or older and live in the US to win. Winners will be announced the following day.

Gibsonlook Cozy Fleece V-Neck Tunic This is one of my favorite Gibsonlook styles, it’s cozy but not too hot, covers the bum and has a good V-neck. I love wearing this with jeans or joggers because it really can be dressed up or down. The grey stripe is a staple for me but comes in several colors. Use code RYANNE20 for 20% off.

Vuori Performance Jogger Now my friend Kelly swore up and down that these were the BEST joggers around and after trying nearly everything I ordered a pari of these. Now they are thin so if you need warm these are not for you but for soft, stretchy, mid-rise and moisture wicking greatness these are hands down the best. Let’s just say I have 4 colors now.

Slip Silk Skinnies Scrunchie Set These Slip silk thin scrunchies are on my favorites list for good reason I wear them daily and they don’t pull or damage my hair. I wear my hair in a bun every night (and most days) so it’s important that I have a style that leaves minimal creases and can hold and these do!

Peter Thomas Roth Hydra-Gel Eye Patches Not sure if you are new around here if so, welcome and you will hear about these gel eye patches A TON. These are what I consider my secret weapon to being a over tired mom of 2 in her 40s. Yeah they are THAT good! Just pop them on and after about 10- 15 min they plump up fine lines and take away that saggy tired look. I use before every photo shoot!

Colleen Rothschild Retinol Supreme Night Oil While I love so many products from Colleen Rothschild the one product that I feel I’ve never found anything to replace is the retinol supreme night oil. This silky oil has anti-aging mixed with Vitamin C and luxurious oils to work AND feel amazing. I use nightly after washing my face and then layer moisturizer on top.

Swig Life 32oz Triple Insulated Stainless Steel Tumbler Now I know everyone has their favorites (my daughter loves her Hydroflasks) I love these insulated tumblers because I like drinking from a straw AND the 32 oz tapers at the bottom and fits in my car cup holder. Also they have a ton of fun prints and colors.

Dyson Airwrap™ Styler If you haven’t heard about this styler check out this post and this IG video needless to say I LOVE my Airwrap. Now it is a splurge but you are paying for the Dyson name and several tools in one.

Dyson V11 Animal Cordless Vacuum Cleaner Too many people told me how awesome the Dyson cordless vacuum was, I didn’t listen until last year and I regret being stubborn, I use this daily. I keep mine hung near or garage for easy car clean up and kitchen clean up. I don’t have this model but I heard it’s the best and really has more suction power good for cleaning a whole house.

Kindle Oasis This waterproof Kindle now has side page turning buttons and warm or cool light. Plus you can drop this in the pool, bath, beach etc and no worries. I got this for Mother’s Day and use it all the time, now if everyone would just leave me alone while in the bath!

Kendra Scott Clove Multi Strand Necklace in Gold I have a ton of Kendra Scott and it’s by far my favorite jewelry company. Not only for their cute fashion pieces but also the leadership and mission behind the company. Based in Austin they have given back to the community in so many ways. This layered necklace is perfect with tons of tops and sweaters.

Soma Cool Nights PJ Sets I love these long sleeve sets and this year they upgraded them with POCKETS! The regular is a perfect length for my 5’5 height but they have short and tall options as well. Needless to say I have all the women in my family hooked on these.

Shimmer Rose Gold Softbound LifePlanner™  If you are a planner person than the softbound hourly format of the Erin Condren planner is on my must have list. Mine sits on my desk and it has everything!! I love that I can hour block my time for efficiency and set goals each month.

Nikon D750 FX-format Digital SLR Camera w/ 24-120mm As a kid my mom was the photographer, I could never understand why she got so excited about a new camera, well now I do. This pro model my husband got me last year for Christmas and its amazing. I added a 50mm lens and still want an 80mm but it’s such a high quality camera perfect for that wanna be pro.

Athleta Masks I mean is it even a favorites of 2020 if there isn’t a mask on the list? While I like Oprah’s Tory Burch pick they recently took it from a set of 5 masks to a set of 3 and I wear my Athleta way more so for breathability, variety of prints and bang for the buck stuff those stocking with these.

Barefoot Dream Blanket If you love the warm snuggly feeling of the Barefoot Dream Cardigan (which is typically on my favorites list but I just got tired of adding it over and over again) then this oversized, perfect for family snuggling blanket is perfect for you. We have 2 and somehow my husband always steals one for his office.

Apple AirPods Pro I wasn’t sure if these were really better than the original AirPods but took the chance in buying them when I lost one of my other ear buds (oops!) I can say that they definitely block more sound and in my opinion are more comfortable to wear. If you are on a lot of phone calls these are a great splurge.

OPI Nail Colors Merry in Cranberry is part of the new 2020 Holiday colors and it has a beautiful bright pink with shimmer and We the Female is a classic deep red.

Insulated Glass Mugs with Handle If you saw my Christmas Wine post then you know why I love these insulated mugs but I also think they make a great gift. Add hot chocolate bombs, coffee, tea or some homemade wine and it’s the perfect gift.

Olaplex Gift Set I can say I am now an Olaplex convert! I tried this gift set because I had heard all the hype from friends and finally also my stylist and they were right this is amazing. I makes my hair smooth and silky without weighing it down and actually repairs the hair strand. This gift set with treatment, shampoo, conditioner and styling cream is perfect for travel or to try out the most popular products. It has been so popular it’s sold out nearly everywhere but I just found it still in stock!
