Erika’s Top Ten-Part Two

This week is flying by for me!  I really could use a day between Thursday and Friday this week just to get my life in order.  I shared Part One of my Top Ten Gift Ideas on Tuesday and am back today with Part Two.  Many of these items would make great gifts for any woman on your list-no matter her age!

GOLD HOOPS-Gold hoops are my go-to and have been since 2005.  I can’t seem to quit them.  These would all make perfect gifts for the ladies in your life!

#1 Huggie Hoop-THESE ARE ALMOST 50% OFF RIGHT NOW!  I grab this pair of earrings all the time.  So much so, that I have to make myself wear something else.  I have “Gold”.

#2 Chain Link Hoops-This pair looks really good with a solid top.  It’s kind of a busy-looking earring but paired with anything solid it really livens up the outfit. Mine are “Vintage Gold”. {The smallest of the group.}

#3 Simple Hoop-I’ve been loving simple hoops for years and years.  This is the simplest option that tops the charts of my favorites.

Honorable Mention-This pair is super light and easy to wear all day long.  If you need nothing but super light, this is your pair.

ALL THE COZY-A good robe and a nice pair of slippers cannot be beat!  Don’t mind my morning look but these are two of my very favorite things.

ROBE-Yes, yes, yes to the coziest robe!

SLIPPERS-These slippers are the warmest pair.  I’ve tried others and keep coming back to these.

ENTERTAINMENT-I’ve never been more thankful for entertainment from home than I’ve been in 2020.  From all the television channels and subscriptions to my Kindle, I’ve managed to find plenty of ways to keep myself busy from home.

Subscriptions-We have Netflix and Disney Plus at our house.  Either would make a great gift if you’re purchasing for someone who doesn’t have that.  You guys have also been telling me Hulu could be worth it for just a month or two to watch the shows only available on Hulu.  Another idea!

Kindle Paperwhite-I absolutely love holding a real book in my hand but for guilty-pleasure fictional reading, pass the Kindle!  Especially when I’m packing for a trip!  Depending on your price, you could throw in an Amazon gift card as well so the recipient could load some new books immediately!

BOOKS-The top recommendations I have from 2020 as well as my FAVORITE book.

#1 Prayer Journal-My prayer life is never better than when I’m journaling.  This would make a great gift for a woman of all ages!

#2 Jesus Over Everything-This is available as a book or a study.  I was about halfway through reading both simultaneously when I paused to begin an advent study.  I’d recommend the book first to gift.  Throughout the study, she encourages you to read different chapters throughout the book so I’d say you need the book for the study but not vice versa.

#3 Raising Worry-Free Girls-An awesome gift for a mama of girls!

#4 Same Kind of Different As Me-My FAVORITE book of all time and would recommend it to men and women of all ages.  I laughed, I cried, and everything in between.

BEAUTY-My tried and true items I’d suggest over and over again!

#1 Unseen Sunscreen-Some of my favorite gifts to receive are those that start with, “This is my favorite…”  When my mom gifts me her new favorite lotion or my mother-in-law gifts her favorite soap, those are fun!  This sunscreen works as both a sunscreen and a primer.  I’ve been using it all winter long.  {I love the Glow as well but it feels more “summer” to me.  You could use it anytime though.}

#2 Fake Bake-I shared this sunless tanner recently but I’m sharing again.  It’s a very inexpensive option that comes complete with mitt {don’t miss that like I did} and gives a really great color.

#3 Morrocan Oil-Great to use on wet or dry hair.  Have been using this for years and is one of the most versatile products for hair.  Great stocking stuffer idea!

#4 Thrive Liquid Lash Extension Mascara-I noticed a neighbor’s eye lashes and thought she’d gotten extensions.  When I asked her about them, she told me it was this mascara.  She was so sweet to put some on my porch the next day!  I’ve been using it ever since and am loving this mascara!  Ebby Lee even asked me if I’d gotten lash extensions after using this!  I was instantly sold!

Again, if you missed Part One on Tuesday, be sure to check it out!  Thanks so much for reading today!  Hope you have a great Thursday!
