G's Holiday Gift Guides 2023

beauty fitness gift guides lifestyle travel wellness Nov 13, 2023

The holidays are quickly approaching, and it's time once again for my annual gift guides! I can't tell y'all just how much fun I have putting these together each year, and it truly brings me so much joy to hear that you love and enjoy them as well.

Gifting is, dare I say, one of my top love languages, and not because I love to receive. Stuff is just stuff at the end of the day. Rather, I believe that taking time to think about someone else and intentionally find something you think they'd love speaks volumes. It's all about being considerate and generous, and THAT is what the holidays mean to me!

That being said, to help you get inspired, I've rounded up gifts for EIGHT different categories to make sure everyone on your list is covered. Keep scrolling for all of the guides, and click for more product info below each one.

Also, be sure to  keep an eye out for even more holiday gifting inspiration on my Like to Know It Page soon!
