What’s better than giving the gift of style? Receiving the gift of style!
Let me explain…
Each holiday season I ask you guys (my audience) how I can be of service.
I figure if I can save you time and hopefully stress, I’ve done my job!
But, I often hear a lot of “I told my husband to buy me this outfit” or “I sent my spouse to your site for ideas.”
Point being, I realized that another way I can be helpful is to create a post for to help your loved ones find gifts for you!
I think I did this once, but it’s been a long time.
So this year I decided to make it a series! And this is the first post of the series and is sponsored by Walmart.
Gift Ideas for You – Plus Size Alpine Weekend
These gift ideas are meant for you, dear readers!
So you can send this post to your loved one(s) and they can feel inspired to gift you some awesome things!
The theme of this first post of the series is “plus size alpine weekend.”
These gifts are great for travel to the mountains or a wintry destination.
Hint: In case your loved one(s) wants to whisk you away to an alpine resort, they can gift you come relevant items for the trip!
Of course, some of these gifts are great for travel in general. And some are just great, period.
Walmart’s Gift Finder
Now before we get into it, let me say that if you came here for gifts for someone other than yourself, I highly recommend you check out Walmart’s Gift Finder. This thing is awesome!
Find gifts for everyone on your list! You can sort by gender, age, the giftee’s interest, and even general helpful categories like “teacher appreciation.”
And I am SO impressed with the selection!
Fair warning though, you’ll likely find a lot of things for yourself too. I did!
Please Send this Post to Your Loved Ones
Ok, dear readers, I am now going to sign off with you.
So, please send this post to any loved ones in need of gift ideas for you.
Please tell them to start reading the “For the Loved Ones” section.
From this point forward, I will be speaking directly to them.
For the Loved Ones
Hello. You likely received this blog post from someone you care about.
I hear you’re in need of some gifts ideas for her.
Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered!
By the way, my name is Alexa and your giftee is likely a regular reader of my blog.
In case you didn’t skim above, the whole point of this particular blog post is to help you find some great gifts for her.
I’m going to try my best to walk you through all of my suggestions while being thorough but not overwhelming.
The Gift of Style – Plus Size Alpine Weekend
In case you didn’t catch the vibe, this particular post is themed: Alpine Weekend.
I thought you might (hint) want to take your giftee away for a wintry weekend of fun.
But, even if you’re in sunny California and have no plans to leave your temperate climate, there are a lot of gift ideas that your giftee is still going to love!
The Gift of Style – Tech & Travel
Nothing is more stylish than having yourself together! Am I right?
If you’ve ever wandered around looking for your keys or worse, your luggage at baggage claim, you know that’s not a good look.
Save your giftee time, stress, and potential embarrassment with AirTags!
If your giftee has an iPhone, she can easily pair AirTags with her phone.
AirTags can play a sound if she’s nearby to help her find her item. But, if she’s far away she can simply use the “Find My” app to track it down!
By the way, the AirTag and Find My app uses Apple’s Find My network anonymously and encrypted for privacy.
But, even Android users can help your giftee track down her lost item!
If your giftee has an Android phone, you should check out a similar Bluetooth tracker called Tile
My understanding is that they’re very similar!
Clearly, I am an iPhone user, which is how I was introduced to the Find My app.
I use it to keep track of my AirPods Pro.
My mother gave me a pair and I love them!
Aside from their excellent sound quality, they charge very quickly, and
I always like to mention that they are very comfortable.
That’s important because all other editions of Apple earbuds and headphones have been incredibly uncomfortable. Some actually painful.
They also use the Find My app which has been very handy!
Walmart currently has them available at an incredible price!
Of course, if you’re taking your giftee on any type of trip, make sure she’s got luggage.
I have a set very similar to these spinners and I love them!
I purchased them for a trip in which I was flying across the country.
But now I use them far more than I thought I would.
They’re so easy to pack and I love that I can wheel them anywhere.
No more throwing my back out slinging a huge duffle bag over my shoulder!
You should also make sure your giftee has some cosmetic bags to pack her essentials.
The Gift of Style – Beauty
That brings us to some beauty items I want to point out.
Continuing on our travel theme, I wanted to suggest a face palette for your giftee.
While I haven’t tried these Milani All-Inclusive palettes, I find Milani to be a quality brand.
These palettes are great for travel because they have eyeshadow, bronzer, blush, and highlight.
If you’re not sure what your giftee needs, it might be better to err on the side of too light since you can often build up color as needed.
Throw in one of these gorgeous eyeshadow palettes if you really want to wow her!
These are highly rated and YouTubers have been raving about them.
And lastly, consider my favorite Milani blush in “Luminoso.”
I think anyone with light to medium skin tones would appreciate it.
Consider the shade “Rose D’oro” for deeper complexions.
Hair Styling Tools
I also want to mention a couple of hair styling tools.
Practically every woman in my life has been talking about this Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer.
It’s an easy way to get volume and that “blow out” effect with the least amount of effort.
If your giftee, like me, struggles to use a round brush and blow dryer simultaneously, this One-Step Hair Dryer is the answer!
Oh yeah, and you can’t beat the price!
The hair straightener is an item I am on a lifelong holy-grail-type-quest to find the ultimate one.
Trust me, I know a thing or two about the (pardon the pun) hottest flat irons on the market!
I have them both. See, I told you I know all about them!
The Bio Ionic iron‘s claim to fame is its vibrating plates that make the hair smoother.
It also has volcanic minerals infused in its plates to help with moisture and shine.
But I don’t like it. Or at least, I have yet to find anything about it to be worth its price tag.
The vibration seems to do nothing. And the plates aren’t as slick as I like.
Now maybe that’s just because I have fine and highly damaged hair.
Regardless, I say unless your giftee has asked for it by name, avoid it.
On the other hand, the ghd Platinum Plus iron is pretty darn good!
Its claim to fame is its “predictive technology.”
Somehow the iron monitors the heat of both plates, checking it 250 times per second to ensure that the temperature is consistent and adaptive.
And I swear, it really works! As I mentioned my hair is fried. Like seriously, fried.
Somehow this magical iron knows what temperature to use for each section preventing me from overheating and further damaging my hair.
But still gets the job done quite quickly. Now that’s impressive!
It also has a unique “wishbone hinge” that I’ve never seen before which allows it to glide easily over my fragile hair and even curl it!
I’m telling you, it’s a winner!
The Gift of Style – Fashion
So it’s highly likely that your giftee reads my blog for fashion advice and outfit ideas.
Meaning this section is an important one, so pay attention! ?
Silver or Gold
The jewelry, sunglasses, and even the handbags’ hardware come in both silver and gold.
And that is on purpose, my new friend.
If your giftee wears more silver and/or has a cool undertone, choose the silver options.
But, if your giftee wears more gold, she likely has a warmer undertone and will look best in the gold options.
You might have to do some snooping or even espionage to figure out what your giftee likes better.
I’m kidding about the espionage, well kind of.
The pave diamond hoop earrings, which come in three sizes, and four finishes, including rose gold and “black,” which is more like gunmetal.
Now, you can never go wrong with diamonds. Trust me.
But, if that’s not in your budget, check out these similar pave crystal hoops.
Bags & Sunglasses
Now I know I have likely already overwhelmed you with options. But stick with me, we’re in the home stretch!
The Michael Kors crossbody bag with chain strap is a classic any woman would love.
There is also a matching wallet. All of them come with either silver or gold hardware.
Pssst, it’s ok to have both!
Wow, can you believe we’re just now getting around to talking about the clothes?
While I show you different specific outfit ideas below, these fashion pieces can all be mixed and matched. That’s the best part!
No matter which pieces, if any, you decide on for your giftee, she can wear them in any combination!
My only caveat is that your giftee might only feel comfortable in the faux leather leggings with a sweater that’s long enough to cover her bum.
In case you’re not aware, the “shacket” is a current trend and a silly word for a shirt-jacket.
Ok, so if I haven’t completely overwhelmed you, check out some of the outfits I put together:

I hope you find something amazing for my readers (your giftee).
I think we can both agree, they’re just the best and deserve some awesome gifts! Right?
