GIFTS FOR HER
Let’s face it, sitting all day sucks! I’m obsessed with my standing desk because I find that I'm more productive when I'm standing. I'm able to focus more and stay on task better when I'm standing and moving around. Which is why this desk is great for to pair with the next thing on my list! Keep reading…
A Treadmill that fits under my desk, yes please! If becoming more active, walking more, losing weight, or working on your fitness are part of your 2024 resolutions, then you NEED this under-desk walking pad. Slide it under your desk or put it front of your TV and walk as you tackle your inbox, work on your social media, watch your favorite show or sit through another boring Zoom. This treadmill is great if you don’t have the time to drive to the gym or it’s too cold to walk outside.

As a busy working mom, it's pretty often that we get sidetracked. Whether it's from dealing with the kids, or putting out fires at work, we're constantly being pulled in different directions. And before you know it, our coffee or tea is cold. Or maybe you're just a slow drinker like me, either way, this portable mug warmer will keep your drink warm all day long.
Idk about y'all but in our house we are Apple die-hards! We have our apple watches, iPhones, and AirPods so when we're going to bed and plugging in all our stuff to charge there are freaking cords EVERYWHERE! So we got a couple of these 3 in 1 chargers to charge all our stuff and now our nightstands look so much cleaner and less cluttered.
If growth and personal development are huge priorities for you- I highly recommend JOURNALING! It not only helps keep you accountable towards your goals but it’s so great for your mental health and managing anxiety.

LADIES… drink your damn water!! I promise you, when you stay HYDRATED, you not only feel better, look better but you’re overall happier. Maybe it’s because you have your emotional support water bottle with you-but regardless, this tumbler is on everyone’s MUST-HAVE list.

Lululemon is the holy grail of sporty chic, and I LOVE LULU. But someone told me about this knock-off Scuba half-zip sweatshirt (which retails for $128 at Lulu), and I had to check it out for myself. I'm happy to report, it's great quality for a fraction of the price! You can snag one of these for only $39.99!
Sometimes smaller is BETTER, especially in this case! I love this leather crossbody when I’m out running errands, or traveling. I always have my essentials with me and it looks great with all my outfits.
Upgrade your athleisure look with these ultra-versatile joggers. I bought them in 3 different colors! Pair with a sports bra for the gym, or with your favorite top to run errands. These joggers are perfect for days you don't wanna wear leggings but still wanna be chill and comfy.
