2018 Holiday Gift Guides


2018 Holiday Gift Guide

It’s here. Hold the phones. Grab those wallets. Spruce up your creative wrapping skills - because the most stressful albeit wonderful time of the year is here. I wanted to create super-curated Gift Guides that are a representation of some of the most creative, fun and non-traditional gifts you can give to your Friends & Family this season.

I’ll be adding weekly - so make sure you are following me on LiketoKnow.it (@mintsociety) and on Instagram (@mintsociety) to stay up to date!

If you’ve been following me for awhile, I hope you’ve realized that i’m fiercely supportive of equal rights and ensuring women of all backgrounds, religions, cultures are supported. This year’s Midterm Elections yielded over 100 women to the House of Representatives who (no pun intended) are true representatives of the diversity of the United States.

And thats fucking cool. And i’m sure you know someone who thinks the same … So this first Gift Guide is for all the Feminist AF BFFs in your life (and while some may not admit it, we know they about those women’s rights too okurrrrtt). While some of these are self-explanitory, you may be wondering about the Stila Lipstick - This is the now famous shade Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wore throughout her campaign this year; She’s now the youngest Representative in the House and beat out an incumbent who served 10 terms before she decided it was time for a change. Now thats #GirlPower.

The ‘Under $50' Gift Guide (for Her)

Who says a thoughtful, unique gift has to break the bank? With so many badass babes in your life, you’re sure to need ideas on how to show them just how much they mean to you with one of these options. Whether you’re BFFs with a history-buff, Obama-obsessed future politician or a quirky, boss babe who is always on the go, you can snag them something super cute for under $50 (and some of these are even lower than that).

A few of these are my own favorites that i love to introduce to others. Lush’s Ocean Salt has been a lifesaver for my skin for years. Paired with a Rose Quartz roller, you can keep all the women in your life looking their best this Christmas. And i have a huge confession - I might have already ordered some of these as gifts to myself (how could i resist the Letterboard Phone Cover from Ban.do?!)

I’ll be adding Gift Guides weekly as we had into Christmas, so be sure you’re following @mintsociety on Instagram and Liketoknow.It to never miss details!

The ‘HGTV-Addict’ Gift Guide

Let’s play a game. Raise your hand if on the weekends you get sucked into Fixer Upper marathons, start thinking you’re the next Joanna Gaines and force your boyfriend to run to HomeGoods to ‘spruce up the house’? Me? Only me? Well if you know any self-proclaimed HGTV-addicts out there or just those who love a quirky, unique find for their abode – this gift guide is for them!

The ‘Under $15’ Gift Guide (For Her)

Christmas is obviously a juggernaut of spending. Everyone is out getting the perfect gift, and this can add up quickly. But just because something is expensive doesn’t make it more special or mean you care about that person more. And Christmas shouldn’t be a time to risk your financial health, when at the end of the day it’s about celebrating joy and family.

So if you’re on a budget this Holiday season, or have a ton of family and friends and need great ideas that are under the ‘White Elephant’ limit - I’ve got you covered! Most of these come from Sephora, ModCloth and even Ban.do as well as a local San Antonio favorite, Feliz Modern.
