Perfect Gifts for Her {psst…”her” is me}

You know how flight attendants remind you that before helping others, it’s important to put your own oxygen mask on first? That’s my philosophy on gift giving. With that in mind, here’s my “Black Friday/Small Business Saturday/Cyber Monday/Totally made up Tuesday” gifts for me guide.


KitchenAid Food Processor

The amount of hummus and banana ice cream I make is reason enough to upgrade to a larger food processor; this eight cup KitchenAid should do the trick. And, here’s a 20% off code for any small appliance from Best Buy.

My current yoga mat has served me well for the last six years, but I’m ready to upgrade and I’ve heard nothing but good things about Gaiam’s Sol Uttama.


One of my 30 under 30 books, Letters to a Young Contrarian by the late Christopher Hitchens. You can see the full list of books here.

 A Delicate Balance

Tickets to see my favorite playwright’s show, A Delicate BalanceIf you’re unfamiliar with this title, Edward Albee’s most well-known work is Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? If you’re still not sure what I’m talking about, you should absolutely check him out if you love awkward situations and quippy repartee.


Winter weather may as well be synonymous with dry skin. So Juice Beauty’s Dry Skin Trio is definitely on my wish list.

Balance-n-Brighten Baked

Lastly, I love using the holiday sales as a time to re-up on cosmetics, particularly my favorite foundation from Laura Geller. It’s light, doesn’t ever look caked-on and acts as a highlighter and bronzer in addition to giving my skin a nice matte-ish look.


Happy shopping. And remember, get your own oxygen mask on before assisting (or gifting) others.
