Gift Guide

Each year when the holidays roll around, we’re always caught off guard by those few hard-to-buy-for girlfriends. Everyone’s got at least one, right? Not this holiday season. Try these ideas and maximize your gift-giving ability in no time at all. Say goodbye to schlepping around the mall for hours on end. Instead, spend that time enjoying a cocktail with a friend this month. How’s that for a time-saver during the busiest season of the year?

Gifts to Inspire

Do you know a woman who doesn’t need a little bit of added inspiration in their life? We didn’t think so. Provide her with a book (or two!) to help guide her days to happier, more inspired places.
