Gift Guide// Ultimate Gift Guide for Her

For the past few years I have helped some of my guy friends pick out holiday presents for their wives. I did this BEFORE I had a blog, I would make Amazon lists, send links, you name it. I’m pretty sure my number one love language is receiving gifts but lets be honest I think I love giving even more.

Last year after some holiday my husband said you help everyone else out I need a YOU! So this year in my gift guides I have strategically listed some items I would love to have… you’re welcome Mr. TRM. If you have a husband, boyfriend or dad that needs some help go ahead and just forward him this blog post link! Here are my picks for all the different ladies in your life, I’m a little of all of them.

Apple MacBook Pro– Every mom boos needs a bad ass laptop!! I was lucky enough to receive mine a few years ago and still one of the best and most used presents I received, my MacBook Pro. I LOVE this computer and the Pro with my slider bar and tons of memory just makes me happy. **I was torn because this should also go under all time favorites.

Dyson V11 Torque Drive Cord-Free Vacuum– Doing it all means things get messy and busy ladies don’t have time to lug out a big vacuum grab her the NEWEST cordless Dyson that now comes with a screen that shows how much power is left and has 40% more suction power than the Dyson V8!

Patagonia Pull-Over– This super popular and cozy pull over will make her happy while going out for that run or headed into CrossFit.

Apple AirPods Pro– There are a lot of people that didn’t love the AirPods because they were too big for their ear canal with the new Pro version they have several sizes of pads and AWESOME to pair up to your phone or Apple Watch.

Drink your Effing Water Bottle– At this point I need my water bottle to get fiesty with me and this one is perfect.

Hydroflask- The bottle I really want to carry everywhere, I also LOVE the 21 oz cup with the straw lid… MR. TRM I could use another one!
