AURA AVENUES GIRLFRIEND GIFT GIVING GUIDE
Gifting can be stressful, and the pressure can cause for meaningless gifts. Let us help you gift the Aura way.
Portable Iphone Charger: Here at AURA, we know what it is like running your life, family and business from your handheld manager, your phone. From grocery list,business to do’s, emails and projects, your battery can’t keep up with you. This gift is afforable and practical for just about anyone from grandma to a “tween”. We found the best deal HERE.
Old Fashion Hot Rollers:
These are such a lost art. The very first working woman’s secret tool. These are great for ALL types of hair, short, curly, naturally straight, unhealthy, and so on. There really is no brand specific that we love, we just love them. The Beauty Department put together a nice list of roller favorites so take a look if this is something you or a friend may need!
A Beautiful House Robe: Most women do not own a beautiful robe that makes them feel pretty, even at home lounging around. A robe is something you will wear and most likely cherish after years of your most intimate, raw moments in them. I cannot tell you how much “life” has happened while in my robe.
I swear some of the most life altering phone calls and heart breaking moments have been in my robe. On the contrary, some of the happiest moments, also occurred while in my favorite at home lounge wear. I had no idea when purchasing this seemingly unimportant wardrobe piece, I had no idea the relationship I would then have with it. You can find an inexpensive robe pretty much any
where, leaving this idea open for any gift buying budget.
Personalize it by printing their name on the front or back. You can also get matching husband and wife robes for your newly married friends or something on the more feminine side for that girlfriend who just had a new baby.
Essential Oils: The endless uses for essential oils is still being discovered. From mental clairty and calmness, to skin healthing, stress relieving, and pain curing magic. This gift has so many possibilities for many healthy years to come.
Amp up this gift with a handy carrying case for their oils(a mini cosmetic bag works great) or a diffuser for their home or office. If you are feeling extra DIY savvy follow our Heavenly Scents post on how to make your own natural oil fragrances!!!
Stress Reducing Candles: Our favorite is bath and body works Eucalyptus Spearmint. Its unisex sent is so calming. Lets me honest, the holidays is not always a breeze as we mentioned in our MORE JOY LESS STRESS blog. Anything that will help reduce stress is a thoughtful gift. This particular scent is also a majority rule for all times of the year, not just the holidays.
A sentimental piece of jewelry: Not exactly the “he went to Jared” commercial type, but something that has meaning. Anything personalized is always a great option. A great idea is a special date to that person, imprinted on a bracelet or pendant. We love anything and everything by Karen of theshangrila.
Her jewelry line is inspired by her love for dance. Her pieces are all complimentary to the curves of a womans figure. Incredibly elegant and thought-out designs. You can find her pieces HERE.
Organic, Chemical Free Beauty Products: Most women have not explored this important area of their health food store. Turning them on to a product you love, while educating them also is a win, win. The majority of these chemical free products are also local, women owned, small businesses. You will be supporting more than her largest organ.
Luxury that gives back: Alp-n-Rock is a hand-crafted Sport-Fashion brand rooted in the belief that the greatest luxury is the ability to give back. Adorned with edelweiss, western style horseshoes, snowflakes and detailed feminine touches, each artisanal piece tells a story.
