I (Kris) seriously cannot believe it is November and we are officially entering the holiday season! While I know you may still be in a sugar coma from Halloween, Jack and I figured we would go ahead and help you get a jump start on your holiday shopping. We will take every Tuesday in November to give our top picks for the most special people in your life.
Please note: If you are reading this through the email subscription, all of the pictures won't show up. But, you can visit our website, www.krisandjackblog.com, and you won't miss a thing!
Today we start with GIRLFRIENDS! I mean, they make the world go round, don't they? Here are my three picks for gifts for the favorite girls in my life (under $30)!
As someone who struggles with organization, I am dying to read this book. I have heard so many wonderful things about it, and I figure, who doesn't want Life Changing Magic....of any kind!?
One of my favorite things about the holidays is all the cute gift sets that makeup lines come out with. What I love about the Chubby Sticks from Clinique is that even if your girlfriend is not a bright lipstick lover, these are sheer enough that they won't scare her.
And, how fun are these Chalk Note Glasses? So long annoying wine charms that fall into your drink or require a PhD in patience to assemble. Just write your name on there and no more guessing (or trying to match lipstick shades like my girlfriends and I do) to figure out whose glass is whose!
These are some of the most important girlfriends in my life (besides Jack, because you already know what she looks like).
I (Jack) made it a goal this year to start shopping for Christmas early! I want to be smart with my purchases and avoid the stress of December shopping. The etsy store Scribbled Peaches has made it easy to get a jump start on my gift buying. Her prices are great, it's easy, and the owner is the sweetest! Gift buying is just more fun with excellent customer service, right!?
I purchased this custom lettered sign for myself (I couldn't help it...it's so pretty and now one of my favorite things!), but I love the idea of a personalized gift for my girlfriends too.
These personalized pocket Bibles make the perfect gift! They easily fit in your purse, car, or desk. They also look so pretty on a nightstand. I may or may not have already purchased these for my girlfriends (act surprised, ladies!) I also love these for kids. And, they don't have to say the receivers name. You can keep a couple on hand for last minute gifts that say things like 'Peace' or 'Believe'...whatever you want. I love her store for teacher gifts too! You can purchase all Scribbled Peaches products here.
A girlfriend and I went to the spa this month just after my birthday and she surprised me with a lavender-infused neck pillow by Sonoma Lavender. It is super soft, relaxing, and features a removable flaxseed insert that can be warmed up in the microwave. It's heaven! While I was thinking about gift ideas for this post, I came across the matching spa mask! It fits over your eyes and forehead to relieve headaches and eye strain, while the scent of lavender soothes. Does it get any better?!
My last gift idea is this cute initial coffee mug by Natural Life. My day can't start until I have my morning coffee. I love to have my coffee in a meaningful cup...it just makes it taste better! I like the simple design of this one and the added note inside the lip that says 'I am grateful for...'
I am grateful for all of these ladies that I get to do life with each day!

Kris and I both celebrate good girlfriend time and hope you all get extra time with yours throughout the holiday season!
“Close friends are truly life's treasures. Sometimes they know us better than we know ourselves. With gentle honesty, they are there to guide and support us, to share our laughter and our tears. Their presence reminds us that we are never really alone.”-Vincent Van Gogh
Happy shopping, ladies!
