Winter days are short and can be dreary and we leave the house fewer times, especially when we work or study at home. This light therapy lamp is the #1 recommended lamp by the New York Times, CNN, USA Today and others and will provide simulated sunlight in a healthy way. Adjustable stand and tow light settings.
If there is a cuter fridge out there, we have never seen it! The Cooluli is portable, runs on AC or DC, and can even be plugged into a car. It also operates as a warmer. Great to keep at a study or work-from-home space to grab a snack between zoom classes. Available in many popular colors.
We think these simple bead bracelets are so lovely but when we read about the founder’s story and saw how many bracelets he created to honor and contribute to worthy charities, we are even more excited to feature them on this Holiday Gifts for Her list.

Glossier is a favorite cosmetics line and this unique blush, “cloud paint,” is something any teen or young woman would love to try. Available in six shades.
In the winter, especially in cold, dry climates, we need a thicker moisturizer for skin and lips. Glossier has many scents and colors to choose from in their Balm Dotcalm line.
We are a little in love with the Olive and June product line for nail care and think that this pedicure system with all the tools, several bottles of polish and a footstool would make a great gift for any young woman.

If your daughter is asking for a watch for Christmas, this is definitely a brand to check out.
Everlane is an online store with a fantastic shop in Manhattan. It’s always been one of our favorite spots to buy classic pieces (for guys or girls), including this gorgeous sweater.
